URL is everything

This probably sounds very superficial, but the simpler your url, the higher chance I might click on yours in a moment of boredom and maybe follow. It’s just that tbh, a URL like i-like-cars123-very-much-also-this-fand0m doesn’t catch my attention.

So, yes, your URL is one of the most important things on tumblr in my opinion

A lesson on how to not be a delusional, superficial and hypocritical gay.

Gays, we need to have a talk. Some people out there that need a good lesson in reality and expectations. Let me tell you a little story…

When in Berlin I met a fellow Australian guy while traveling. I asked him about his travels and discovered that he recently moved countries too. Conversation moved to boys, relationships and “types” (as it does) and some things he said struck a real chord with me.

Now let me give some background; this guy was an above average looking fellow, in average shape in his late 20’s, single and educated. When I asked him about the boys back home he said “they’re all terrible, think they are God’s gift to the world and are really superficial”. I was taken back by his ability to throw an entire group of people in a category and under a bus, however I let him continue talking. As we moved on to his “type” he mentioned that he likes athletic, muscled, toned, tall, “straight-acting” guys. He narrowed it down to professional sports guys, quite specifically.

This is a guy with a severe case of delusion and I feel that I have met many people like this before. First of all, if he was to desire to be in a relationship with someone of extreme health and fitness levels, he should probably aim for the same goal himself. He isn’t model status attractive. I’m not being rude when I say this, this is a reality. Here is someone bashing on other gays saying that they are superficial and self righteous and not only is he doing the exact same thing, but he is worse because he is unaware to how damaging his views are. Hypocrites like this infuriate me. It strengthens the stereotype and increasing problem with modern gay men and the image to be perfect. To always be looking out for the next best thing. THAT’S NOT HOW RELATIONSHIPS WORK, GUYS.

In a perfect world, everyone would be blind to attractiveness based on physical appearance. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and this isn’t Barbie’s Malibu Mansion.

Well, let me give an example. When I’m driving, I sometimes turn on the radio and I find very often that what I’m listening to is a discussion of sports. These are telephone conversations. People call in and have long and intricate discussions, and it’s plain that quite a high degree of thought and analysis is going into that. People know a tremendous amount. They know all sorts of complicated details and enter into far-reaching discussion about whether the coach made the right decision yesterday and so on. These are ordinary people, not professionals, who are applying their intelligence and analytic skills in these areas and accumulating quite a lot of knowledge and, for all I know, understanding. On the other hand, when I hear people talk about, say, international affairs or domestic problems, it’s at a level of superficiality that’s beyond belief.
—  Noam Chomsky, on people and seeing sports as an important factor rather than world issues, in a interview with Alternet.org.

I can't wait until season 2 starts. I've loved this relationship from the very beginning. I hated that they made Ichabod Katrina's wife. It just seemed too forced. She and Abraham always belonged together.

Yay! Very first anon!  And yes! From the very beginning! He loved her even though she was a poor Quaker girl. How is that not a Cinderella story! I get that Katrina might have felt a little overwhelmed but I never understood why they couldn’t have just talked it out. But maybe they will get to do that in season 2. And I totally hear you about Ichabod and Katrina feeling forced, totes superficial and weird. 

I hate how when people deal with depression they always just offer the most superficial and childish solutions, “I’ll eat pizza and watch disney movies with you and then listen to music all night long.” I understand you’re trying to help, but don’t belittle it, by trying to be cute and quirky, it’s a serious thing.

Hey man, so I have a question. What's the best way to get girls without them thinking that you're superficial? Sometimes girls just see me for my clothes and I want them to know the real me. What have you done to avoid that?

First, never allow yourself to be defined by any one thing. Especially not your clothes.

Second, avoid acting, looking, being superficial. Strive after depth, beauty, goodness, and truth. Read widely, listen often, talk little. Seek to become a well rounded individual.

Third, be a gentleman. In thought, word, and deed. We all fail at this but it’s a noble goal.

Fourth, don’t try and “get girls”. If you like a girl, pursue her, not to merely obtain her, rather to cherish and respect her.

Hope that helps!

I thought it was an old tire.

from Wikipedia: “The siphonophores, are an order of the Hydrozoa, a class of marine animals belonging to the phylum Cnidaria. Although a siphonophore appears to be a single organism, each specimen is actually a colony composed of many individual animals. Most colonies are long, thin, transparent pelagic floaters. Some siphonophores superficially resemble jellyfish. The best known species is the dangerous Portuguese man o’ war (Physalia physalis). […] Siphonophores are of special scientific interest because they are composed of medusoid and polypoid zooids that are morphologically and functionally specialized. Each zooid is an individual, but their integration with each other is so strong, the colony attains the character of one large organism. Indeed, most of the zooids are so specialized, they lack the ability to survive on their own. This is somewhat analogous to the construction and function of multicellular organisms; because multicellular organisms have cells which, like zooids, are specialized and interdependent, siphonophores may provide clues regarding their evolution.

Personal note: I am going to admit I had no idea a thing like this actually existed. I am given to thinking about things like the courses evolution might take in certain situation, and one of these courses I imagined would be several distinct organisms coming together in very strong symbiosis to create a colony like this. But I had no idea it’d actually happened. I am not surprised that it has, however.

There is very little, next to nothing, that we can think of, that the Universe hasn’t already created. And perfected.

I don’t get why people think that they are entitled to judge my relationship with the Hunter, or the relationship of any godspouse.  I just read a rant someone wrote about godspousing and they referenced a post that I had made about being inspired to make people see why a god loves me.  Yes I wrote a post about wanting to be beautiful enough to seem worthly of a god.  No, you don’t get to judge me and deride me for be “superficial.”  Do you know how much I don’t think I’m good enough for Him?  Do you have any idea how long I have struggled with self esteem issues?  Why did no one seem to understand that that post wasn’t just about appearance?  That in wanting to present my beautiful enough to win a gods love I want learn all of the good qualities that I lack or that I struggle with and have them shine through me?  I want to be good enough, for Him, and for people to see it. I just want to be good enough.

Maybe I expected people to read the subtext too much, but seriously, I’m “sickening” based off of one fucking post.  I think it’ll be easier for me to be good enough for Him than for me to ever be good enough for the fucking pagan tag.  

Sono andata al mare, senza di te.
Il vento batteva forte e scompigliava i miei capelli.
Sentivo il suo canto, e vedevo le sue carezze sulla superficie del mare.
E poi vedevo te.
In ogni onda che si formava, in ogni spiraglio di luce in cielo, in ogni nuvola.
E ho capito che non mi avevi abbandonato, che c’eri ancora.
Che la tua presenza anche se non in carne ed ossa la potevo sentire in ogni piccola cosa.
Ed allora mi sono abbandonata a quelle sensazioni, alle tue immagini, a te.
Non ero senza te alla fine, tu c’eri, tu eri quello spettacolo.

this is such a great image! I have stretch marks and its just a part of losing weight. I don’t know about you but id rather a few ‘tiger stripes’ than be over weight and at risk of chronic disease!!! 
So to anyone stressing over stretch marks, let them tell your story or hard work and success… they are SO normal and a lot of people experience them, and cellulite for that matter…if you are healthy and moving and nourishing your body you have nothing to be ashamed of. Anyone who says otherwise should be ashamed for being so narrow minded, petty and superficial about  beauty. 

Comparison

Just to show what a HUGE difference superficial things can make in a photograph. In the first pic, I probably weigh about 15 lbs less than I do now.

And yet this pic from this morning (that I already posted) is just a MUCH more flattering picture.

I guess it just goes to show what the right camera angle/glasses/lighting can do for a face in a picture!

Lyrics

ware wa nanji no itami o tsumi o batsu o dakishimeru mono
ware wa nanji ni rekishi to hikari, kakushin o kizamu mono

kokoro ni aragawazu soe ba sorera wa owari de ari hajimari

aru ga mama no tane nara kyomu
shi o motomeru tane nara mirai

sing out beautiful, sing a hope
sing in dysphoric loneliness
kanade koe ai michi yui
perfect world’s end,only discord
shiboridasu genkai no Voice hakai shite kaisuru wa kimi

ding dong…ring a lasting bell
shuen ga kuru yami yue kagayaki o mashite
let there be light, struggling blue
wake up soul, anothen blue
umi ochi tokeau yorokobi

break it concept, break it heart
break it superficial knowledge
chikae rui inakoumetsu
innocent world, just opinion

megurasete shinmitsu na will tsunagatte furueru watashi
ding dong…ring a lasting bell
kurikaesazu ni nani mochi tadayoioborete

let there be light, struggling blue
open eyes, anothen blue

nanji, ware no itami o tsumi o batsu o sukuu itoshiki mono

narehibike kane kono nikushimi no kodo ga nemuranai yo ni

ding dong…ring a lasting bell
Shuen ga kuru yami yue kagayaki o mashite
let there be light, struggling blue
wake up soul, anothen blue
Kake ai majiwaru wa digraph

I’m tryna meet a man who tryna stay up and grind with me. Help me make flash cards, make coffee, and basically push me to be great. Fuck that lame shit girls on Instagram wanting superficial shit. Shade but no shade. I’m trying to push myself and the man I spend the rest of myself to greatness.

Describe in detail your dream woman? :)

hm well, she’s got to be cute of course, superficial things like hair color, eye color aren’t really important, neither is religion & those sorts of things, piercings and tattoos aren’t a problem either, but she’s got to be sweet. opinionated, and outspoken, and doesn’t worry about calling me out when i’m being dumb or if there’s a problem. but physically she can’t be a bag o’ bones, gotta have something to cuddle & be my little spoon :) and it goes with out saying she’s got to dig my beard
