So the big take away from this whole tiger king thing is that twitter people will happily say "eat the rich" but as soon as a woman allegedly feeds her millionaire husband to some tigers they lose their goddamn minds

April wildflower. I took this this afternoon in a bit of good weather between two storms. Taken with my & wide angle lens.

These are among the first wildflowers to blossom on my walk. The colony has expanded over the years and now has two groups, one in the sun and the other in the woods behind, which are blooming now. # Adobe

White violet. The wild violets are out now for spring. Shot as usual with my and Moment macro lens

Respecting yourself and taking yourself seriously are two very different things and it's funny how many people forget which one of the two is important

Actually, arguments in favour of "economy of form" which demand that media such as albums, films, books not "waste the audience's time" buys into the commodification of every aspect of existence by capitalism. Art should not subscribe to this commodification: it should resist it. So fill your novels with as many digressions, your movies with as many lingering shots and unnecessary scenes, your albums with as much filler as you feel like doing. I will be happy to waste that time with you.

imagine if there was a tree, with blue apples on it, and you picked one of the shiny, round, blue apples and you were about to eat it, and the apple turned out to be sonic the hedgehog and he was extremely pissed off

Sinn also make a watch designed for firefighters

This is the EZM 7, the colour coded sections on the bezel display the amount of time firefighters can operate using various types of specialised breathing equipment

It also features their temperature resistant oils which improves rate stability at extreme temperatures

i was very surprised by this. i thought crows enjoyed most foods, being scavengers. i mixed chopped apple into the oats i use as feed, but Fatappi actually tossed the apple bits away to look for other goodies. they wanted the bread and nuts i'd given them previously. guess now i know.

Some of the watch blogs are posting articles on the Sinn EZM 12 because of... current events, so fuck it, here we go

This is the Sinn EZM 12, a super cool watch they released a few years ago, designed for use by emergency medical personnel

It's got two timing bezels, one of which is marked with the "golden hour" and "platinum ten minutes" which I'm informed means something to medical people

It's also got a pulsometer and is really easy to take apart and sterilise with minimal tools

me: hey did you know that they were originally gonna call Pokemon Pockemon but they were worried that kids would scratch away at the P and the O and turn uhhh... so it would sa--

me: *immediately goes cross-eyed and my legs give way from under me*

edgar wright: cut !!!

Sunset last night from my usual view on🌦️Blue Mountain in Linden, VA. Taken with my & Moment 58 mm lens.

I feel for the many people trapped in small apartments in cities this month. I am grateful that I live deep in the country and can take long walks on dirt roads where's I seldom encounter anyone. And the wildflowers are blooming.
