I love you, but I’m mad at you is one of the most freeing, important things you can say in a stable relationship. Does that make sense? To know that you have the ability and the right to be mad at someone and know that it doesn’t mean things are over, that it doesn’t mean things are irreparable. That it just means I’m mad, but God, I love you. I love you. Now leave me alone.– To be good, to save nothing (via smeellie)
All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.– Susan Sontag (via likebookends)
I have ruined relationships for fear of ruining those relationships.– Neil Hilborn (via oppen-heimer-style)
Still one of my favorite plants ever: indian pipe or ghost pipe or corpse plant. It helps that it’s even dependent on stealing from a fungus for its nutrients, and it shows up only to flower. Ghostly vampire fungal flowers, FTW. I really need to sculpt these.
I found some Monotropa uniflora when walking through the woods near my house, and couldn’t figure out what they were despite taking a couple of pictures. Now I know!

The game itself is simple — either try to decipher a word (craterfacesphere was the new word for moon), or invent a new word for something that was recently trademarked. Every time a word is successfully deciphered it gets trademarked, so the result is an increasingly bizarre vocabulary.
It’s the sort of game that will become more interesting the more it’s played. Even non-players might enjoy seeing how the description for a particular word becomes more strained over time. As a composition tool, TradeMarkVille could eventually provide a bizarre thesaurus for the entire English language.
