now your time has come and gone.
breaking down and giving up.
furies have a victim caught.
trampling the dreaming stuff.
watch another prophet fall.
ash to ash and dust to dust.
swallow the volcanic mud.
wash the smell of angels off.
clear the mucus from your lungs.
hope in spite of the high cost.
your snow globe has come undone.
our lives must look so short to gods.
all i want to do is love…
all i want to see is love…
all i want to hear is love…
all i want to think is love…
all i want to say is love…
all i want to feel is love…
all i want to make is love…
all i want to be is love…
all i want to love is love…

"you are man?" montage (+4 closeups)
I made this out of Details sent to me in the mail. I never subscribed to the magazine, they’ve just showed up for years now.
It struck me how the presentation of men in media is as skewed as pictures of women. our society has serious body image issues.
that is something we made landing on ANOTHER PLANET
Cody and I watched The Big Lebowski with French subtitles last night. Here are our favorite screenshots.
NASA just landed a rover on Mars, this is the very first picture. This JUST happened minutes ago.

The Rosetta Disk
Long Now Foundation’s Rosetta Project have created a miniature archive featuring all of the world languages laser etched onto a small disc that can fit in your hand:
The Rosetta Disk is intended to be a durable archive of human languages, as well as an aesthetic object that suggests a journey of the imagination across culture and history. We have attempted to create a unique physical artifact which evokes the great diversity of human experience as well as the incredible variety of symbolic systems we have constructed to understand and communicate that experience.
The Disk surface shown here, meant to be a guide to the contents, is etched with a central image of the earth and a message written in eight major world languages: “Languages of the World: This is an archive of over 1,500 human languages assembled in the year 02008 C.E. Magnify 1,000 times to find over 13,000 pages of language documentation.” The text begins at eye-readable scale and spirals down to nano-scale. This tapered ring of languages is intended to maximize the number of people that will be able to read something immediately upon picking up the Disk, as well as implying the directions for using it—‘get a magnifier and there is more.’
… The pages are microscopically etched and then electroformed in solid nickel, a process that raises the text very slightly - about 100 nanometers - off of the surface of the disk. Each page is only 400 microns across - about the width of 5 human hairs - and can be read through a microscope at 650X as clearly as you would from print in a book. Individual pages are visible at a much lower magnification of 100X. The outer ring of text reads “Languages of the World” in eight major world languages.
