Spanish artist Raul del Sol may not be an entomologist by profession, but these finely-detailed ink on wood illustrations reveal that he certainly seems to be one at heart.

For a beautiful ongoing series entitled Metamorfosis, Raul closely studies insect anatomy and the stages of metamorphosis for different species and then illustrates their awesome transformation processes on sets of plain wooden Matryoshka or Russian nesting dolls.

Oasis | Don’t Look Back In Anger

I’m gonna start a revolution from my bed
'Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside ‘cos summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
'Cause you ain't ever gonna burn my heart out

words to use instead of using “bipolar”

The repeal of Section 18C arises particularly out of the 2011 prosecution of Andrew Bolt, a columnist for News Limited, publisher of The Australian, for violating the so-called hate-speech laws.

Section 18C states that it is unlawful for a person to “offend offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people… because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin.”

A Federal Court judge found he had breached the Racial Discrimination Act because a pair of articles he wrote were not written in good faith and contained factual errors.

And, the judge said, the articles would have offended a reasonable member of the Aboriginal community. [x]

Getting into trouble for racism? Simple, just remove the laws making it illegal. Problem solving: Abbott style.

if you can find any agreement at all with the abbott government position on this matter then you don’t understand racism at all


He’s fucking up shit really bad.

Ever After: A Cinderella Story, 1998 »


I started writing on my movie blog, again. I have some posts saved in my draft, that I’ve been trying to finish to the point of perfection. But I just knew that it would never happen, because I never think anything is good enough. So, I decided to just finish them off, even if they seem disjointed and incomplete. I started with my post on Ever After because I wrote about it in my thesis, too. So, check it out if you want to.
