Antique Victorian Microscope Slides
In the Victorian era, even something as simple as a slide for a microscope is beautifully illustrated with colored delicate floral designs and detailed patterns. The latter generations seem to have lost certain elements of style, design and attention to detail, whether industrial or personal, that were commonplace in the 19th century and prior. These are incredible.

Incredible 3D Artwork

These truly unique pieces by Japanese artist Yuki Matsueda literally jump off their canvases toward the viewer. Escape seems to be the main theme of the sculptural work. The artist takes objects, signs, and items of everyday life, mounts them and then appears to deconstruct them by having an important or needed element fly off the image. The clear acrylic wrapping of the sculptures ultimately acts as a kind of barrier to the outside world, constraining them within a kind of impenetrable force field.

Matsueda appears to be making a comment on the desire for individuality and escape from societal rules and norms, with the clear acrylic acting as the inevitable reaction to the attempted escape, literally stopping the object in its tracks. The artwork also displays a sleekness similar to that of high-gloss ads. Matsueda has a background in design which clearly shows in these pieces.

I actually first photographed this man on the sidewalk, but then he invited me inside his store. And the store looked just like the guy.

Vertical Garden Beautifully Colors Building in Paris

A novel way to bring more life and color into the “concrete jungles” of the world is to create a vertical garden. I vote that every city street have one to make up for the loss of foliage that big inner cities prevent. It literally causes the building and neighboring areas to come to life.

Patrick Blanc, a French botanist, artist and author, whose book, The Vertical Garden: From Nature to the City, is considered a classic work on the subject, agrees that when it comes to vertical gardens, the challenges are great and the avenues varied. “In nature,” Mr. Blanc said, “plants grow in many different ways, and when it comes to creating vertical gardens, many things are possible. Different people have different approaches.”

Blanc created the vertical garden (featured above) at the intersection of Montorgueil, Reaumur Sebastopol and the Great Boulevards in Paris. As part of a private initiative to make Paris more eco-friendly, he took seven weeks in March and April to plant the seeds, nurturing over 7,600 plants belonging to 237 individual species. The stunning garden covers 250-square meters on the building’s face and quite incredible. The wall will be officially inaugurated during Paris Design Week in September, 2013.

Vertical gardens can evoke anything from a tropical jungle to a Monet landscape. But because gardens were intended to be horizontal, not vertical, and because water, left to its own devices, flows down and not sideways, they are always challenging to maintain.

So this guy started talking to me on kik and it wasn’t that nice really. As you can see he called me all sorts of stuff as fat, told me to cut my wrists and to go back being anorexic. I told him I’d post our convo on my tumblr and he begged me not to since he was afraid he’s gf would see it, and I don’t want to ruin their relathionship but I’m not gonna be silent about this either. So when i told him id post it he posted a little bit of our convo instead where I called him a bitch, so now I’m getting shit for it. And not just this, he even called his own gf horrible. I’d be very very happy if you could spread this, apparently I’m not the first one.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS. MAKE THE GIRLFRIEND FIND THIS

I hope his girlfriend sees this!

This guy deserves to die alone! >:C
