‘DAYDREAM is an audiovisual installation that generates space distortions. Relationship between space and time, accelerations, contractions, shifts and metamorphosis have been the lexical field of the project. This installation aimed at establishing a physical connection between the virtual space and the real space, blurring the limits and submerging the audience into a short detachment from reality. Lights generate abstract spaces while sounds define the echoes of virtual spaces. Daydream is an invitation to contemplation
i don’t wanna be your friend.
i just wanna be your lover.
I’m not living, I’m just killing time.
Just don’t leave.
holy shit dude
If you don’t know Alex, I suggest you read up on him. Because yeah, sure, any parrot can mimic, but Alex was one of the first to prove on many occasions that he understood the meaning behind the words he said.
With that in mind, just think about what he said for a sec. Alex had to understand on some level that death means leaving. That’s fucking mindblowing.
Alex also was shown to have the intelligence of a young child, anywhere from 3 to 5 years old. He could do basic addition and subtraction, and independently taught himself the concept of zero (something that most CIVILIZATIONS couldn’t do!) He had a vocabulary of thousands of words, some of which he made up himself, and had deep interpersonal bonds with many scientists and trainers, as well as other parrots.
Alex the parrot is basically the coolest bird ever.
animals are often smarter than you think. There is/was a gorilla they taught sign language to. And one day she asked for a kitten. they gave her a stuffed animal but she signed sad. She wanted a real one. She was allowed to choose one from a litter.
She named it All Ball and she loved it.
Except one day All Ball escaped from the cage and was hit by a car. And this shows you just how much animals can understand. They signed what had happened but didn’t think the gorilla would understand. But she started making weeping, howling/crying sounds and the signs for bad, sad, etc.
And then “Sleep, cat”. She understood death.
She’s had two kittens since then.
Animals understand more than you think. Depends on the animal, yes.
doot doot outta my way bitch
A friend of mine posted this on her facebook and I felt it was a good thing to share. It tears me apart when my little sister, a freshman in high school, comes home crying because she hates her body, only because advertisement and pop culture have programmed her to hate her body so that she would try to find the miracle cures in the pages of beauty magazines. The point is, if you’re truly dissatisfied with yourself you should ask why. Being fit and healthy is important, but you shouldn’t think that you’re not worth shit because you don’t look a certain way, especially if that way is Photoshopped. People come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and they’re all unique and have beauty in there own way. We should stop the violence of normalcy before it’s effects are fully seen. People are beautiful, it’s corporations that are hideous.
