Shut up, you bitches! YES, I’M IRANIAN AND I’M PROUD OF IT!


Bactrian “Master of Animals” Vase, 2nd ML BC

See it in 360°

A carved serpentine vase, conical in profile with flared rim; frieze of a standing kilted god or hero with horned headdress and hatched hair, grasping in each hand the neck of a rearing serpent, each with gaping mouth and slender protruding tongue, elliptical panels in two lines to the body; supplied with a laminated card clarifying the design.

Items such as this were produced on the island of Tarut in the Gulf, close to the Arabian coast. The carving is known as the Intercultural Style and combines stylistic elements that are paralleled in eastern Iran and western Central Asia with iconography that derives from, and mingles, those of Mesopotamia, Iran and Harappa. The figure is most commonly described as the ‘Master of Animals,’ a hero figure that is associated with the control of the chaotic forces of nature as represented by wild animals. vessels such as this have been found at religious sites, such as the temple of the moon god Sin at Khafajah.

Poe junkie

The cold of London is forgotten in the glow of a lighter,
It is all you do to kill the grey,
Numb at the tips and you flick it right up,
And a dead man they say,
as you get High another day,
Just a drag to a smile, its chocolate.

Just a dab you use it,
Get high to get calm,
Paranoia but you do it,
Sweet lies its all like chocolate

You and your friends call it chocolate,
The lyrics of the song called it fate,
Roll up and strum the strings, chocolate to forget,
Dead inside and sad soaked futile hate,
You bite her lips, taste like wine and chocolate,
You call it chocolate, just a lie; you dead?

Your lungs they take it in like a friend,
Your heart breaks again, remember why you like it?
She broke your heart so you broke your head,
Bent with drags of chocolate, loved her but she didn’t know,
Bite your lips, light it up and inhale your fate

Inspired by the 1975 chocolate and my own addiction and self destruction

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than to show appreciation to one of DC’s most influential Women!


Kaoru Shiba (志葉 薫) was the actual 18th Head of the Shiba clan in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger and the one who truly possesses the ability to use the Sealing Character that will spell doom for the Gedoushu. She had been in hiding for years, mastering her skills and allowing Takeru to sit in her place and give their enemies someone else to target. 

Like Takeru, she has the ability to become Shinken Red, which makes her the first woman to be a red Ranger in the series history.She has also made several appearances since the end of Shinkenger proper having appeared in the crossover movies Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai GoKaiger and as the returning representative of the Shinkenger team in an episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

She is played by Runa Natsui (夏居 瑠奈).
