Are you even real
Ok, NOW I have a crush on him. Officially.
a fun way to start the day is by getting a call from a robot pretending to be a human
This is the animal they chose to represent Satan.
The Father of Lies
Just think about that for a moment.
Shout out to @ladyfabulous because we all know she has a goat blog whether she likes it or not ;).
Also, story time: once at a petting zoo, my dad sent me into a baby goat pen with extra feed in my pockets and the goats swarmed me and pulled down my pants.
I AM NOT A GOAT BLOG
This is a very important post.

Hidden Momento mori ring
Boston 1996. Cemetery headstones. Photos Terri Kennedy, except the top one. That’s me.
I want to go to this cemetery!
Totentantz is the common title of a fresco by Niklaus Manuel Deutsch made in the Berner Dominikanerkloster, which the artist began in 1516/17. The sequence of images (80 meters and 24 scenes) was destroyed in 1660.
What remains is a copy (1649) by Albrecht Kauw (1621-1681). -Piktocon
To Watch Over Me
The History of Lovers’ Eyes
From the Oxford American:
It was fashionable at one time (late 1700s/early 1800s) to give your secret lover an eye portrait so that he (or she) could carry you around (on a pin or a ring) without fear of detection. What is remarkable about the droll collection of miniature “lovers’ eyes” on view at the Birmingham Museum of Art is how very little an eye, the so-called window to the soul, reveals. Perhaps this sort of gift was not so much romantic as cautionary: I am watching you, my darling.
More on the interesting history of eye miniatures and an interview with the foremost collectors of the form, read the terrific article at Salon.com.
An Ivory Memento Mori ~1640
Wellcome Library no. 45066i (Artist Unknown). The Dance of Death. 1600s.
Yo, I’m gonna be reblogging lots of different images that I find very beautiful, mainly things from the ”Momento mori” tag and maybe ”graveyards” but also girlie things. SO, if you don’t like that stuff, I’m gonna tag the creepy stuff ”death” if you’re trying to avoid it.
