testosterone boys and haaaarlequin girls
so my last round of school assessments before my trials and then hsc just finished, and so i'm taking a break (ha!) to share things before i return to this weekend's assignments. :D?

(1) this reimagining of the mahabharata, 18 Days by Grant Morrison and Mukesh Singh is perhaps the most gorgeous thing i have ever seen. for the interested, the mahabharata is one of india's most significant pseudo-historical epic tales. as most of indian's history goes, it's essentially about gods becoming involved in human battles for power and rule of kingdoms, as so much of indian history is, and it's fascinating. well, i enjoy it. for me, i'm more interested in the historical cultural side of hinduism, although i don't entirely believe in it, and i tend to think that astrology is complete bullshit, but anyway, i digress. this reimagining is kind of really really cool and ig i can tell you guys who people are if you want!

(2) this article about fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva aka stone man syndrome; the girl who turned to bone by carl zimmer, is another really interesting thing, and it's really well written imo. i want more articles like this all the time tbh. sighs i have no interest in doing medicine but i find it really interesting?? :c

;; i miss making lj posts like this even though no-one is gonna read this probably. anyways, back to schoolwork, writing a speech on the shipping news and doing my drama design project and my ancient history presentation. ah ha ha ha ha ha.

"I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
-- john greene, the fault in our stars

the forgotten dialect of the heart

How astonishing it is that language can almost mean,
and frightening that it does not quite. Love, we say,
God, we say, Rome and Michiko, we write, and the words
get it all wrong. We say bread and it means according
to which nation. French has no word for home,
and we have no word for strict pleasure. A people
in northern India is dying out because their ancient
tongue has no words for endearment. I dream of lost
vocabularies that might express some of what
we no longer can. Maybe the Etruscan texts would
finally explain why the couples on their tombs
are smiling. And maybe not. When the thousands
of mysterious Sumerian tablets were translated,
they seemed to be business records. But what if they
are poems or psalms? My joy is the same as twelve
Ethiopian goats standing silent in the morning light.
O Lord, thou art slabs of salt and ingots of copper,
as grand as ripe barley lithe under the wind's labor.
Her breasts are six white oxen loaded with bolts
of long-fibered Egyptian cotton. My love is a hundred
pitchers of honey. Shiploads of thuya are what
my body wants to say to your body. Giraffes are this
desire in the dark. Perhaps the spiral Minoan script
is not laguage but a map. What we feel most has
no name but amber, archers, cinnamon, horses, and birds.

the above gif has nothing to do with this post, it is just gorgeous and i love super junior very much so.


it's time! for the massive post in which gabs waxes eloquent about a thousand (huge exaggeration) fandoms she loves outside of k-pop :D below we have lotr, inception, pirates of the caribbean, and the marvel movies.

okay note here: fandoms doesn't really mean i ship anything in them ;; it's more like the movies and books where i am particularly obsessed with certain elements of them so yes.

here we goCollapse )
