talking in riddles is my way of honesty

I’m always fascinated in seeing this type of creativity. It’s like how did they even begin to think of something this dope. Blows my mind.


PHOTOGRAPHY: Snow White by Sanne De Wilde

Earlier this year, Flemish photographer Sanne De Wilde made her North American exhibition debut in Peterborough with Snow White, her absolutely stunning Albino portrait series. Constantly observed, yet unseen for who they really are, Albinos deal with stereotypes and negative connotations, De Wilde says.

Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani 's “Street Stone” Gives Louvre's Classical Sculpture Some Hip Threads

Artist on Tumblr, Behance, Facebook

"As if they didn’t already have the perfect physique… now the Louvre’s classical sculptures have flawless style as well. French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital mastermind Alexis Persani to give these ancient sculptures a sartorial update with their “Street Stone Series.”

Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series. Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated. Then again, since the now-monochrome statues were originally brightly painted, maybe the images aren’t that far off base after all.

What do you think? Do you prefer your Louvre sculptures classical or trendy?

Taylor Swift covers Vance Joy’s “Riptide” at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge (HQ)

“Music tells us things — social things, psychological things, physical things about how we feel and perceive our bodies — in a way that other art forms can’t. It’s sometimes in the words, but just as often the content comes from a combination of sounds, rhythms, and vocal textures that communicate, as has been said by others, in ways that bypass the reasoning centers of the brain and go straight to our emotions. Music, and I’m not even talking about the lyrics here, tells us how other people view the world — people we have never met, sometimes people who are no longer alive — and it tells it in a non-descriptive way. Music embodies the way those people think and feel: we enter into new worlds — their worlds — and though our perception of those worlds might not be 100 accurate, encountering them can be completely transformative.”

kinda wanna face my responsibilities, kinda wanna die


Nicole, 17, Philippines

I am studying Journalism at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. My heart belongs to the works of author Neil Gaiman and singer-songwriter Ben Howard, and to the endlessly absorbing struggles of living. I've never been to a concert in my life. I can't swim, but I am in love with the ocean.

"Comfort came against my will; every story must grow old" is the inspiration behind my blog title. It's a line from Ben Howard's song called 'Black Flies.'

Talk to me, will ya?
