“Um, hi. I’m looking for someone. Can you help me?”

“Hi. I’m here about the job offer/internship.”

"Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to spill my ______ on you.”

"So you’re the one we’ve been so worried about. You don’t seem that intimidating.”

"Cat got your tongue?”

"Are you ok?”

"Can I buy you a drink?”

"Hands up!”

"I’ve never done something like this before.”

"Are you the one in charge here?”

"Mind if I join you?”

"I think this belongs to you.”

Glass Animals • Tumblr IRL • Los Angeles • 8/31/16

Bringing an album to life at a Tumblr IRL had yet to get THIS literal. 

The characters pictured in the Glass Animals’s new album and videos added a whole new dimension, inviting fans to be Human Beings with them. With a background of 8 bit projections from the minds of Whoopi (@whoopthis​) & Myk (@myk31​), the band (@glassanimalsband​) performed their new songs on stage in a world made from their imagination. 

Graced with some oldies, and hit hard with new music that could only make them dance, those in attendance at The Village Studios in LA didn’t just get a show. They got to truly experience the album. 

Listen to How to be a Human Being here, and check out all the art on Glass Animals’ Tumblr. OR get the damn thing on vinyl and impress your friends. 

Big thanks to the band and their brains, to Whoopi & Myk and to Ice Breakers Mints (@icebreakersunicorn​) for making this happen, to Vinyl Me Please (@vinylmeplease​) for putting Tumblr IRL art on a record (!!!), to Yours Truly (@yourstrulysf​) on production and to Spotify Sessions (@spotify​) for enshrining it in their vault so we can all enjoy a show with as much energy and passion as you’ll ever see.

We’ll let you know when that’s available.

By the way, I keep saying I want to stay away from politics in this blog, and I mean it, BUT I don’t consider talking about Communism as a political topic, rather, it’s a fully social one in my eyes, as not only it affects me on my daily life, but time and again you see how through history it has affected others as well, in ways that rival Nazism. 

So yeah, I hope this doesn’t bother you, the focus of this blog is still purely militar, that’s why I never refrain myself from posting soviet material, just like I never do with nazi material as well, because at the end of the day, it’s all about awesome machines of war, aesthetics, and man conquering nature through technology!

The Soviet nuclear-powered icebreaker Lenin (Russian: Ленин).

Both the world’s first nuclear-powered surface vessel, and the first nuclear-powered civilian vessel. She sailed over 85,000 miles in her 30 years-long career, from 1959 to 1989, out of them, almost 65,000 miles sailing trough frozen seas. 

Curiously, due to her reactor design, she was incapable of sailing through warm waters, as doing so would create a risk of a meltdown.

At the end of the career, she became one final world’s first, after being successfully turned into a museum ship, the first and so far only time a nuclear-powered vessel has done so. 

Earlier in her career she suffered two reaction accidents, both due to loss of coolant, and after the second one her original three-reactor propulsion system was changed to a more reliable two-reactor one, lasting until her retirement, when it was removed and disposed of. 

Total original displacement: 16,000 tonnes (reduced as time went on due to her hull being slowly worn out by the ice).
