The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wander.

I’m constantly, endlessly fascinated by who people are and why they do the things that they do. I love exploring and finding a way to explain to people how I feel about life and I think that the best way I can do that is through acting. That’s what I’ve always gravitated to and with the stories that we tell as actors you can humanize and explain something through a different character. That’s one of the beautiful things about acting. Someone can walk out of a movie and think, “You know what? I really learned something from that character.”

I never thought that I would ever feel discouraged in regards to hijab here. Like how blatantly hijabis are ignored in social situations cause we seem “unapproachable.” How we’re written off as rigid and boring. And I hate that I care about this but it’s so obvious that guys gravitate more towards non-hijabis. I don’t know. I just hate that it might be making it more difficult for me to make friends but I honestly don’t want to be friends with people like that a9lan.

Hubble Sees Spiral in Serpens by NASA Goddard Photo and Video on Flickr.

This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a beautiful spiral galaxy known as PGC 54493, located in the constellation of Serpens (The Serpent). This galaxy is part of a galaxy cluster that has been studied by astronomers exploring an intriguing phenomenon known as weak gravitational lensing.

This effect, caused by the uneven distribution of matter (including dark matter) throughout the Universe, has been explored via surveys such as the Hubble Medium Deep Survey. Dark matter is one of the great mysteries in cosmology. It behaves very differently from ordinary matter as it does not emit or absorb light or other forms of electromagnetic energy — hence the term “dark.”

Even though we cannot observe dark matter directly, we know it exists. One prominent piece of evidence for the existence of this mysterious matter is known as the “galaxy rotation problem.” Galaxies rotate at such speeds and in such a way that ordinary matter alone — the stuff we see — would not be able to hold them together. The amount of mass that is “missing” visibly is dark matter, which is thought to make up some 27 percent of the total contents of the Universe, with dark energy and normal matter making up the rest. PGC 55493 has been studied in connection with an effect known as cosmic shearing. This is a weak gravitational lensing effect that creates tiny distortions in images of distant galaxies.

Welcome Walk the Moon!



Sean Waugaman and Walk the Moon Join Our Family

September 15th 2014 New York, NY – We are very excited to welcome Sean Waugaman and Walk the Moon to our growing family of artists. Sean’s passion for music was evident early on.  Before becoming the drummer for what would become the Ohio alternative powerhouse: Sean played piano for seven years. After saving enough money he was finally able to afford a kit of his own.
              In his early playing he gravitated towards heavier genres, namely John Bonham and Dave Grohl. In high school, Jazz became a major influence musically after studying with Reggie Jackson (Diane Schuur, Dr. John). He would further his musical education and major in Jazz Studies at Ohio State University under the direction of Joe Ong.

Sean is a very talented individual, and a well rounded musician. In addition to drum duties, he also sings. Masters of Maple owner Sahir Hanif on Waugaman, “When I was introduced to Sean by one of our artists, Martin Diller [HolyChild]: I was thrilled. I had been such a fan of the walk the moon from when they first came out on the scene. Sean is a tasteful drummer, and adds another layer and texture when he sings. I am so excited to have him on board, and am looking forward to a great future together.”
             Walk the Moon formed in early 2008, and achieved mainstream success with their self-titled debut album. The song “Anna Sun” continues to be a favorite of radio stations throughout the US. Recently Sean and co. completed their sophomore effort with acclaimed producer Tim Pagnotta, and is due out early 2015.
             Sean will be playing our flagship line of drums: the limited series, along with a bell brass snare drum. An additional touring rig consisting of Neo classic series drums is in the works as well.

He will make his television debut with Masters of Maple Drums on late night with Seth Myers [ latenightseth ] on 9/15/2014. Walk the moon will be performing their new hit single, “Shut up and Dance.”  . [Please check local listings for airtimes]

                An initial promotional tour will begin in Seattle on October, 8th 2014.

Sean also endorses Paiste Cymbals and Roland Electronics.

you are the sun.
i am the earth, and i have stars
and the moon,
but you are the sun.

warm and steady,
and i am a constant satellite of your
blazing light, just like there are
pieces and pieces of rock gravitating
around my body.

and if he was meteor,
you are the sun.
and for every scorching wound,
you are the sun, you are the sun.

—  You are my sun

do you like it when kaisoo walk next to each other in airports because they do that (too) often and you won't walk side-to-side with someone you're not comfortable with right?? because i like it so much TT^TT

They always seem to gravitate towards each other at airports and I like it a lot, anon~ ^^

I feel that, unless you listen to and review music for a living, it’s rather hard to find the time or inclination to actively engage with more than one or two new albums per week. (Which seems like a perfectly healthy amount of new music to begin with!)

But you do tend to gravitate to the bigger name releases, the BNMs, the albums everyone’s talking about, and give cursory glances at best to whatever else might float your fancy. So despite Jennifer Castle being featured on NPR and beautifully written-up on one of my favourite music blogs, I’d probably have missed this record had it not been for Britt talking about it approvingly on Twitter and me serendipitously deciding to take the plunge and seek it out. 

And what a beautiful record it is, taking the folk songbook from sparse to orchestral to country twang. If you’re into folk music of any variety, do seek out Pink City and give it a spin whenever you find a quiet moment. I think it’s a very fine record indeed.

"I don’t need a home/ don’t need a lover/ I’ll be out on my own/ Come hell or high water."

Earlier at school someone asked me if I miss her and my honest response was I do but it's kind of a come and go feeling. A feeling I don't dwell upon for too long, I have new people in my life who are in the process of showing me brighter things, I just don't gravitate towards the thought of her because it's just too dark for me. But it's just sad you know? How things kind of ended with questions unanswered and we were just left with opinions. I wasn't perfect, I did one mistake earlier in our relationship which got revealed later on, but as God knows and a few other people know as well, I spent most of my time trying to make up for it, so that mistake has has settled with me whether she hates me or not, I know that tried to be the best I could be. Life goes on

So, I have a feeling the new Childish Gambino is sort of divisive. Am I right? If you haven’t heard it yet, he dropped a new tune named Sober over the weekend (labeled "rough", so it’s likely not the finalized version). When I hit the play button and Glover’s falsetto smooth crooning filled my ears along with the very Michael Jackson-esque style of the tune, my eyes widened. What? What’s going on? Now, I’m not the biggest fan of Childish Gambino on earth, though I fully agree that he’s pretty amazing. I can’t help but find myself gravitating to Sober more than I usually do with his tracks. It’s incredibly shiny and upbeat, oozing with sexy, alluring warmth. I’m not complaining. Childish Gambino’s new mixtape STN MTN / KAUAI will be out later this year. I wonder what else he has in store for us.

I was tagged by she-is-a-saucey (thankyou!!!)

It’s a big day for physics.

A team of astrophysicists reported today that they have directly confirmed the existence of gravitational waves, first predicted by Einstein and whose fingerprints tell tales of the first trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second after our universe came into being. This discovery, one of the most significant of the past 50 years, could explain a few more mysteries of just why things are the way they are in the universe today.

Using a beefy-sounding telescope near the South Pole called “Bicep”, the scientists peered almost 14 billion years into the past, studying the Cosmic Microwave Background, that distant radiation left over from the beginning of the universe itself, its wavelength stretched from unthinkably hot plasma to chilly microwaves as our universe expanded from a subatomic scale to the vastness of today.

(Cosmic microwave background temperature fluctuations, via ESA)

The Bicep team detected peculiar fluctuations in that radiation, not in its temperature, but in its polarization. Like visible light waves, this early radiation can be polarized, wiggling and oscillating in a given direction, or even in a spiral. By analyzing the particular pattern of that polarization, we can then walk backwards and figure out what gave rise to those patterns in the very, very early universe.

This discovery is especially important to deciphering those earliest universal events because in its first 380,000 years the universe was dense enough to be opaque to light, meaning we have no distant radiation fingerprints older than the CMB to tell the early tale. These gravity waves may just decode that story. In essence, it’s the earliest look at the universe we’ve ever gotten.

Long story short, this confirmation of gravitational waves gives the strongest support yet to the idea of “cosmological inflation”, the real “Bang” of the Big Bang, where our universe expanded faster than the speed of light itself, growing so many orders of magnitude in so short an amount of time that it truly boggles the mind. Aatish Bhatia put it like so:

This has implications for everything from multiverse theory to the long search for dark energy and dark matter (and its origins) to why our universe is so flat and even at its observable edges to the quantum scale blips and fluctuations that gave rise to everything from stardust to galaxies. Like any science, this monumental result needs to be confirmed by other groups (which should happen later this year), but this is champagne-worthy science.

Confused? There’s a lot of awesome science to take in. For more in depth explanations, check out the following links (because this has pushed my biologist’s brain to its mushy limit):

I think my favorite part of this is this little tidbit of scientific history from physicist Alan Guth, one of the first to propose the concept of inflation: Back in 1978, when he had just gotten his Ph.D., he scribbled a “spectacular realization” in his lab notebook that predicted the results reported today:

It was a long time coming, but that “eureka!” moment has arrived.
