The Potoo - Either the most unphotogenic or the most ridiculous looking bird in the world.
unphotogenic? these are my favorite pictures of any bird ever
This look like a Hayao Miyazaki creature.
OMG I’m still laughing HELP.
I’m pretty sure these birds were the inspiration for some of the Muppets
This cover doubles as an homage to The Little Engine That Could.
Emile Cioran was a pessimist philosopher. (Really, I could stop the explanation here. But I won’t.) Reportedly, his mother once told him that if she had known he was going to be so unhappy, she would have aborted him. I guess this gelled pretty well with his outlook however and he later stated, “I’m simply an accident. Why take it all so seriously?”
Sometimes when I get real depressed, Emile Cioran quotes read like punch lines. Other times, when I’m regaining faith in humanity, statements like “Since all life is futility, then the decision to exist must be the most irrational of all,” do not elicit laughs.

I’ve been wearing more makeup lately than I used to, and inevitably, I more often get to hear:
“Oh, you don’t need makeup. You’re beautiful without it!”
And I talk a lot of beauty and loving myself just how I am. Some people feel these two things are hypocritical, to love yourself and wear makeup. And okay, yes, let’s acknowledge that there are women who feel pressured to wear it despite not wanting to. This happens. But a lot of the time, women wear makeup for themselves. It’s fun! It’s expressive. It’s artistic. It’s not “necessary,” but neither is pizza.
I’m not trying to cover anything up the same way an artist isn’t putting paint on a canvas for the sake of covering the canvas.
(Edit: Also, I’m getting calls for people wanting t-shirts of this. If you feel the same, let me know. I would gladly print some of these.)
There’s too much good stuff on Tumblr tonight!
(and yes, Megan! Make shirts!)
