Modern Architecture Captured in the Paintings of  Jens Hausmann

Jens Hausmann reflects modernism in the catacombs of world-denial protected by power. He does so with a contemporary painterly stance that looks after itself in an outstanding way, without losing sight of the world (and that also means the world of the painting).

Hausmann practices a painterly culture. His painted surfaces are thoroughly worked through, and alive. Through the way he treats paint, he allows us to feel the world. They are grand gestures that turn the material into an event—thus making the subject all the more urgent. Because Hausmann chooses a position of the in-between. His forms are simultaneously abstract and concrete, figurative and non-figurative. With great visual effects, he maneuvers us between the poles of absolutely cerebral and the painterly materiality. The uncomplicated and the artificial come together to form an energetic mixture that charges every painting like a battery.

It’s so fascinating to me how so many doctors know so little about psychology and psychiatric medicine

anonymous asked:

Jet, Michiru is only one month older than Rei and Haruka just three.

Consider though: that’s a crappy detail.

No, really, I think it just makes no sense. I can, if I REALLY TRY AND WANT TO BELIEVE, that it’s the sort of “well you’re in middle school, but we are in ~high school~” mentality taken to the extreme. And on that really surface level it can work for about two seconds.

Long term though? BACK TO CRAP

For myself, I ignore all that. I believe Haruka and Michiru are much older than tenth graders, and they’re doing a 21 Jump Street-style infiltration into Mugen.

The episode was otherwise awful on a million levels, but I love the sort of nod 106 gives for that idea, too.

When Mako asks if it’s okay for them to be driving, only being in tenth grade, we get this amazing moment.

IT’S BEAUTIFUL

But yeah, accepting that Haruka and Michiru are older than the Inners by mere MONTHS doesn’t work for me on any level, and so I reject it. If you enjoy it, by all means, stick to it! Otherwise, JOIN ME.

I just found a sci-fi anime about little girls being friends in an abandoned city and now I can’t stop crying.

In The Mood For Baking

Y/N hummed as she pulled out various bowls from the cupboards in Joe’s house. After placing the bowls on the work surface, she clicked on her phone to check over the recipe, twirling around to grab what was needed for her little project.

“What is with all the banging around in here?” Joe asked, walking into the kitchen. He stopped at the island worktop, placing both hands on the counter and leaning forward, a half smirk on his face. Y/N glanced over her shoulder at him, and shot him a smile before turning back to the fridge in front of her.

“We’re baking. I was in the mood.” Grabbing the eggs and milk, Y/N turned to face him fully and kicked the door shut up.

“We?” He asked, turning his head from left to right, “I do believe we are the only one here, love.” Joe ran his hand through his hair with a small chuckle.

“I know, we as in me and you. Grab the flour please.” She replied with a cheeky smile and bent to grab the measuring cups.

With a dramatic huff, Joe moved towards the cupboard and grabbed the flour before moving to stand beside Y/N.

“Alright then, whats first?” He asked, bending down slightly to rest his chin on her shoulder. Glancing out of the corner of her eye, Y/N smiled at the British boy.

“Well, you can measure out the dry ingredients if you want, and I’ll do the wet ingredients. Then we will have to combine them.”

“Is it not easier to just go out and buy a cake?”

“Where’s the fun in that, Joe?”

“No one said anything about fun, Y/N. I just want to eat it.”

“You can eat it when its done. Now, add it slowly or else-“ Y/N was cut off by the sound cloud of white in front of her face. She waved a hand in front of her face, letting out a slight cough.

“Oops?” Joe said, smiling at her.

“Or else the flour goes everywhere. Good job.” Y/N blinked a few times, trying to get the flour off of her eyelashes. The boy beside her brushed a thumb across her cheek, wiping off a spot of flour that had landed there. Y/N turned her head and kissed the pad of his thumb before picking up the whisk to mix the small mountain of flour and other ingredients into the wet mix.

While that was getting stirred, Joe decided to be a little more helpful and grab the cake pan, prepping it for the batter.

“Here you go, love.” He said, placing it beside the bowl on the counter. “Is it ready for eating yet?” The thatcher asked, dipping his finger into the bowl, but it was quickly slapped away by Y/N’s hands.

“Do you want to get sick from eating raw eggs?” She scolded. Nudging him away with her hip, she poured it into the cake pan, making sure to scrape the sides so Joe couldn’t get any. Once that was finished she walked over to the sink to place it in there to be washed, and when she turned around, Joe was standing there with his finger in his mouth.

He pulled it out slowly and grinned at her.

“I had to made sure it would taste good!” Joe exclaimed, Y/N just rolled her eyes and grabbed the pan to put it into the oven.

“You are such a child sometimes.”

“Yeah, but you love it.” He replied, wrapping his arms around her waist and pulling her closer. “Now, how long do we have to kill before this cake is ready?” He mumbled into her ear.

Y/N’s giggles echoed off the walls as Joe carried her into his bedroom. He had found a way to kill time until the cake would be ready.

I'm wondering how you add those tiny glitter stars or any glitter products to your pins? And also any tips for beginners? Thanks !! ☆ keep up the great work love your pins!!!! (⌒▽⌒)

Oh man the glitter….I actually kind of like doing it but it’s definitely something that requires a steady hand(?).

To apply those glitter, you should varnish the top of the work first. Then just dump some of the glitter on a piece of paper and use a toothpick to put all of them on the surface of the work while it’s still wet. I usually put a tiny bit of varnish on the tip of the toothpick so that the glitter sticks to the pick. After you have everything done, let the varnish dry, then just keep on reapplying coats of it until the surface is how you’d like it to be. 

As for tips, I don’t really have anything important. I guess if you’re planning to make something, don’t draw anything too intricate at first. Start with something simple looking so that it’ll be okay if mistakes happen!

This is the hellish nightmare I made on my first try. I mean, it turned out nice I guess, but imagine if I messed this up during the shrinking process (◉Θ◉) 

you laugh like there is no hope in our story

They’ve fallen into a comfortable rhythm since SHIELD went down with a splash. Usually, Steve finds him after his workout loose limbed and water still clinging to his hair. They talk about anything or nothing until Steve reaches out, and Tony follows until they find the nearest surface and work through everything in their systems.

They don’t really talk about it. Never really talked about it. Sometimes it all hangs heavy between them, but Tony is good at ignoring when he really needs to be talking through his issues.

Hazelnut Cream Scones

These tender scones with a hint of hazelnut can be made extra sweet by adding dried cherries and topping with a hazelnut flavored glaze. Perfect for a special breakfast or brunch, they are best served warm, but will hold for a day or two if needed.

Ingredients:

parchment paper

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons frozen unsalted butter

1/3 cup dried cherries or cranberries

¾ cup plus 2 teaspoons hazelnut flavored nestlé® coffee-mate® natural bliss® all-natural coffee creamer

2 teaspoons turbinado or granulated sugar

Directions:

ADJUST oven rack to middle position. Preheat oven to 425° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

COMBINE flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in large mixing bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cherries, if using.

ADD ¾ cup Coffee-mate all at once to flour mixture; mix just until combined.

TURN dough onto a floured work surface. With floured hands, knead dough just a few times until mixture stays in a ball. Transfer the ball to the prepared baking sheet. Pat into a 7-inch circle, about ¾-inch thick.

CUT dough into 12 wedges; separate the wedges. Brush tops with remaining 2 teaspoons Coffee-mate. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden on top. Slide the parchment onto a wire rack; cool for 10 minutes before serving. Scones are best the day they are made, but will hold for 1-2 days in covered container.

Cook’s Tip: To glaze tops of scones, combine ½ cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon Hazelnut NESTLÉ COFFEE-MATE NATURAL BLISS All-Natural Coffee Creamer in small bowl; stir well. Using a fork, drizzle over scones. 2

Family Ties - A Kaitrith Disapproves side story

“There you are!” A vaguely familiar voice interrupted Kaitrith’s focus as she sat in the garden, looking over a few documents that Josephine needed her to sign. She’d commandeered the chess table from the commander so that she would have a neat, flat surface to work on, much to his chagrin. She did enjoy seeing that man scowl.

Had it been the commander coming to harass her with some banal details or trying to find a reason to get his chess table back, she would have gladly pretended she couldn’t hear him—she’d once convinced him that a Venatori mage had made her deaf for half a week before he’d caught her talking with Bull and Krem and realized he’d been made the fool.

However, this voice was distinctly young, feminine, and—most importantly—held that lovely Antivan accent. While she wasn’t Josephine, Kaitrith could guess who it was before she even looked up.

Throwing Salt

So @ladyofthegeneral has been throwing salt about many things tonight, and it’s got my salt rising to the surface. Work has got me salty. I recently asked for three days off in a row, a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Now the policy at my job is you need to request days off two weeks in advance. I did it nearly a month in advance. And now my hours for this week, approaching my days off next week, are shit. And this is not the first time this has happened. About a month ago I needed some days and I requested two weeks in advance, like a good girl, and my “boss” (she’s technically my boss, but I never interact with her because I normally work nights and she’s the day manager) gave me fucked up hours. Why is this bitch punishing me for having a life outside of Shop Rite? This is not my career. This is not a permanent job. Stop fucking me over when I need time off! May I also add that my other bosses( who I like and interact with often) love me, say I’m a good employee, and customers seem to like me and the work I do. I never call in sick, I do whatever they ask me, because in the end, they pay my wages. But why the fuck do you need to be a bitch and fuck me over? Arrgh!!! May I add, she’s done this to some other employees too.

“I do realise you’ve been shacked up with that beautiful missus of yours lately, Bert…” Sammy trailed off as he yanked open the door to the fridge and took out one of the bottles of their father’s favourite past time that he’d been hoarding up, actually just waiting for his brother to come pay him a visit in his new two bed apartment he had purchased. “.. but even so I had been expecting you to come around a little bit earlier than this” After pouring them both a drink, he handed his brother his before leaning up against the work surface and casually sipped away. “How’s that going anyway? I’ve heard whispers, is she really pregnant? And if so, how come I may just be the last one to know?”
