New mural by the Low Bros (@low_bros) in their hometown of Hamburg, Germany.

Statement from the Bros:
“These two murals are located in a very special place called Gängeviertel in the center of the city. Gängeviertel consists of twelve nice historical houses – the last ones of their kind - which are surrounded by soulless glass and concrete buidlings. We are proud that we had the chance to paint the façades of the „Kupferdiebe Haus“ („house of copper thieves“), the building in which our studio was situated before we moved to Berlin.

A few words on the significance of the spot:
Gängeviertel is an important cultural spot for Hamburg and a symbol against gentrification. These houses were empty for several years inspite of severe housing shortage and vanishing subcultural spots. The City of Hamburg had just sold the historical buildings to an investor who wanted to remove them when a strong alliance of artists occupied the place in 2009. Luckily, the occupiers were supported by numerous citizens. Under this pressure the City of Hamburg bought the houses back and made them available to the new registered and self-governed association Gängeviertel e.V.

Newt Gingrich: a legend in his own mind.

Newt Gingrich Is ‘A Stupid Man’s Idea Of What A Smart Person Sounds Like’.

   Former House Speaker and likely GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich commenced his address at an American Family Association event in Iowa today by lavishing praise on a controversial amateur historian who believes that Jesus opposed the minimum wage and that Islamic extremists have literally infiltrated the Justice Department. “I never listen to David Barton without learning a whole lot of new things," Gingrich said, while inviting his audience to read the Texans’ writings on the Founding Fathers. "It’s amazing how much he knows and how consistently he applies that knowledge.”

   David Barton likens himself to a biblical prophet. He wants to destroy the separation of church and state. Why is he designing school curricula? Rob Boston

Insipid, ineffectual, inert, inane, insane but not intellectual. Fuck you Newt, you shiteating moron.


Accusations fly like bullets do...

Even though I deleted the messages I got sent earlier they still have a sting to them because I read them… I can’t unsee what I’ve seen. I should have just deleted them as they came to my phone but part of me couldn’t believe it… you know I’ve been disrespected by plenty of people I worked with and children I take care of at my job but when those people you least expect start verbally attacking you… whew. It takes a lot of love not to retaliate… I honestly tried to see the disagreement and what was done wrong on my end but all I got was anger and hate. And I just started to think how even at my angriest moment I would not have said the things that were said to me. But this person was angry beyond reason and what I said or felt didn’t matter. 

I know I am not perfect and I know I have done my fair share of hurting others but I am really past all of the hate.  I know I have grown so much over these last few years but the past was still brought up and tossed in my face. I have learned to be more forgiving and I have tried my best to make sure the love I give to others is unconditional but this persons goal was to make me feel like I was everything but that… like really tried to tear me down based on accusations. Deep down I know the things that were said weren’t true but I’m still hurt, upset, angry, feeling misunderstood and so many other emotions. 

I try to continue to focus on the positive. God has blessed me with people who have been building me up and although this particular instance really got to me I know I still have so much to be grateful for.  

Okay, I still can’t believe i’ve reached 1K followers. I never thought someone will like the things i do - this is huge and amazing for me. I have this blog for like 6 months? But feels like i was here forever.Thank you all who’s following me, i can’t find another words!

There are some truly wonderful blogs i’m going to follow FOREVER, even if i didn’t talk to you at least once, you need to know you’re amazing, your blogs are everything, and you’re the one of those ppl who gave me inspitation. It feels incredible to be a part of something beautiful something huge like ouat and cs fandom.

Every single of you deserves to be followed!

This week’s theme in Edgetown on the Nerdcrafteria server was “fantasy”, and I kind of went a little overboard, and attempted something inspited by the Pixie Dust tree from Pixie Hollow. Not anywhere NEAR screen accurate, but it’s really pretty and I love it.   

Couldn’t have done it without help from Socks (That’s her Haku dragon staring at the tree) and the epic gardening skills of Snikkidoo, tho! :) Thanks ladies!!   

Mineworld resets on Tuesdays so if you want to see it after that, it’ll probably be somewhere on my creative plots near /warp banesidhe.

(1/2) (also warning for drugs) I think Murdocs been described as an ex-speed freak in canon before. My hc is that he tried kicking that habit and other addictions after 2D came out of his coma, while they were living together and working on the band, bc he didn't want anything to distract him from that. He goes cold turkey while 2D's away visiting his parents for a weekend, in an attempt to tough withdrawals out alone. But when 2D comes back he finds him lying on the floor in terrible pain.

(2/2) inspite of his fear and not really being good in high-pressure situations 2D does his best to help Murdoc. He cleans him up (bc he’s covered in his own vomit) and tries to calm him down when he hallucinates and shakes. Then 2D sings to him, which calms him so much that he falls asleep even tho he’s in pain. Over the next few days D helps Murdoc get back to full health. Murdoc never says it but he’s always grateful to 2D afterwards bc nobody ever looked out for him like that before


oh thats a sad :( this probably happened in canon, i mean murdoc’s definitely not the type to admit he needs help, especially 2D’s help, so he would think he could go through that on his own. 

Storm-related lyrics. 


  -Storm, Lifehouse-  How long have I been in this storm? So overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form. And I will walk on water, and you will catch me if I fall 

-Thunder, Brooke Fraser-  We speak in storms, we’re all electric.  


-I Can Feel You, Bethel Music- The winds and waves surround me, and I’m tossed, feel like I’m drowning. Then through the shadows, your light appears.


-Je Suis Pret, Brooke Fraser- See the tempest lookin my way, drained the skies of all their colour. And I need eye to eye, with a fire in my breast- Je suis pret.


-Flood, Jars of Clay- Rain, rain on my face. Hasn’t stopped raining for days. My world is a flood. Slowly I become one with the mud. But if I can’t swim after forty days and my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves lift me up so high that I cannot fall.


-Crows + Locusts, Brooke Fraser-  The rumble is low and the heat is high, got a feeling that there’s rain out in the oil black sky. Gonna chase away the devil when that sun does rise, gonna plead the blood…


-High of 75, Relient K-  And tomorrow, I know, will be rainy at best. And the forecast, I know, is that I’ll be depressed, but I’ll wait outside hoping that I’ll catch sight of the sun. Because on and off, the clouds have fought their control over the sky. And lately the weather has been so Bi-polar and consequently so have I. And now I’m sunny with a High of 75, since You took my heavy heart and made it light.


-Hello Hurricane, Switchfoot- I’ve been watching the skies, they’ve been turning blood red. Not a doubt in my mind anymore: there’s a storm up ahead. Hello hurricane! You’re not enough. Hello hurricane! You can’t silence my love.


-Without You, Brooke Fraser-  The sky opens up over me and you, and you don’t seem to mind that we’re soaked through. You kiss me in the rain, I forget what I’m moaning about, and I know I wouldn’t be the same without you.


-Between the Raindrops, Lifehouse-  Hold on and take a breath, I’ll be here every step, walking between the raindrops with you.


-Can’t Complain, Relient K-  Looking at the clouds and they seem kinda funny.Probably gonna rain but my outlook is sunny, I’ll just imagine that I’m laying out in Mexico.


-The Shadow Proves the Sunshine, Switchfoot-   We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight, dry eyes in the pouring rain. The shadow proves the sunshine.



these are just some, btw.

Let me first tell you that I’ve been reading many kaylor fanfics and yours is by far the best EVER. Those dialogues OMG. I understand you were kinda overwhelmed because of the whole COSMOPOLITAN thing; when I knew about it I was in shock cause it’s like, now the world knows and not just our little secret society of kaylor shippers. However, it was a great recognition that inspite of many other fanfictions, yours was chosen. So feel proud. As for Taylor, I know that she’s liked other kaylor fanfics so I think she’s cool with it. I honestly hope you don’t stop writing because you have many followers, including me, who wake up many days just hoping to have an update from you. You’re super talented girl, the world shouldn’t be missing any other second of your work.
PS. Waiting anxiously and crazily or part two. 😀

Thanks!! Not sure how this was submitted so I will just post it like this…

But seriously, thanks so much! I’m doing my best to just see the positive side of this type of recognition. I’d like to think she would just see it as a writer practicing their skill creatively… I suppose it is unfortunate that I am doing so in a way that MIGHT make her uncomfortable. But who knows, maybe I won’t be writing fanfiction in the future but rather works of my own ;)

Not stopping on writing anytime soon… I hope to get you that update to wake up to tonight!!

Seriously, thanks so much!! It was very sweet!
