I'm always smitten by how these lovely crystals can be made of very common compounds. White calcite (CaCO3, calcium carbonate) with hematite (Fe2O3, iron III oxide) tips, are chemically identical to the limescale and rust in your bathroom! πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜ #howdoyoumuseum

(Interview with Mark Rylance, from historynet.com) What a phenomenal film, but reality is often stranger than fiction!! #Dunkirk #mustwatchagain

Sigh. I have to give my gratitude to Chester Bennington and Linkin Park for soundtracking and helping me cope with a very awkward transitional stage in my life: middle school, and for warming me up to many of the genres I enjoy through their fusion of grunge-rap-metal, spoken word, and lyrical angst. Revising one of my favorite LP tracks did the trick. Rest In Peace, Chester Bennington.

Bye-bye money, hello Criterion movies, thanks Barnes and Noble! πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

Today is a good day. Dire wolves ftw.

Had some awesome HOMEMADE THAI FOOD courtesy of @enchilydia and Paul!!!

#latergram : I climbed those stairs twice last week when touring DTLA with friends, in the summertime heat. What a trip.
Millard Sheets, 'Angel's Flight,' 1931. Seen at @lacma

RUN! THE QUADRUPEDAL CYCLOPES!! Nah, it's a mommy mastodon (Mammut americanum) and her juvenile. @thelabreatarpits #howdoyoumuseum

Dunno if #FluffyFriday is a thing but have another view of Maruyama Ōkyo's 'Puppies Among Bamboo in the Snow' (1784) to start your weekend off. πŸ˜—πŸ˜

#Latergram : Another of Abdulnasser Gharem's 'Hemispheres,' 2017. This one illustrates the dualities of sublime awe and beauty and systematic doctrine, of individual piety and social organization, of peace and war, unity and conflict inherent to not just Islam, but all religions. #abdulnassergharem #pause

Some people just want to watch the world burn. Yes that's a Park Place card from Monopoly Deal. Yes, I PUT IT IN THE DISCARD PILE. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!1111
