sun-worshipers

This week’s #FeatureFriday is Yuengling! Yuengling is one of our male ring-tailed lemurs. Born on June 12, 1992, he is the third oldest lemur on the reserve.

Yuengling is one of our free-ranging lemurs and lives in a nine acre multiple-species forest. He lives with his mate, Ansell, as well as their six youngest offspring- daughters Rogue, Allagash, and Duffy, and sons Moose, Goose, and Darwin.

Yuengling’s favorite activities include sun-worshipping, grooming piles with his children, and chasing the red-ruffed lemurs out of his territory.

ISIS: Destroying Egypt’s Sphinx, Pyramids Is 'Religious Duty' - Breitbart
ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said destroying Egypt’s national monuments, such as the pyramids and the sphinx, is a “religious duty."

“The fact that early Muslims who were among the prophet Mohammed’s followers did not destroy the Pharaoh’s monuments upon entering Egypt does not mean that we shouldn’t do it now” 

what a way to contradict your own stupid ideology

Salafis believe in the way of the Salaf, the early Muslims who were the first converts & the first three generations of Muslims, Salafis believe in rejecting ‘religious innovation’ that came after those first three generations

destroying objects or shrines/sites that were once used for worship is merely a sign of how weak your faith actually is that you feel so threatened by it (I mean the individual person’s faith, not the religion itself)

people used to worship the sun, are you going to blow up the sun?

but regardless of whether these sites were destroyed by the early Muslims or not, the destruction of heritage & ancient culture is an unforgivable crime

i love plague and messed up stuff for rp related things and im going to be hopping flights a lot more in the future but

irl im just into nature and wanting to grow my own crops and herbs and fresh healthy food living remote and digging my hands in2 the soil and gardening and wildlife and animals and plants and things and nATURE I MISS NATURE FLIGHT BUT MY CLAN DOESNT FIT IT HOW DID THISHAPPEN TO ME

I STARTED OUT NATURE AND THEN EVERYTHING JUST SLID OUT OF MY HANDS AND BECAME ITS OWN THING

now i have no control

Seattle | Sun Yourself by Willie Fitzgerald, Postbox

The last time we stopped by Vignettes, the one-night-only art gallery that Sierra Stinson hosts in her tiny Capitol Hill apartment, it was for a Lindsay Apodaca show titled “American Spirit.”

Against one wall, there was a bright pink condom stretched over an irregular hunk of quartz.

In the center of the room, Mickey and a Minnie Mouse dolls had been sewn together, back to back, making some sort hallucinatory Janus out of Walt Disney’s cheerful, helium-voiced cash cows.

Off by the kitchen, a Garfield doll had been turned into a fully operational bong. (At one point, while guests were milling about and sipping champagne from plastic cups, Apodaca strolled by almost nonchalantly, loaded Garfield up, and then the burbling sound of THC dispensation filled the sweaty apartment).

We’ll cut to the chase: If for some reason you haven’t made it over to Stinson’s Vignettes by now, you’re missing some of the most interesting, ascendant and off-kilter art this city has to offer. Stinson’s made a name for herself as the curator of the moment, and now she’s bringing her talents to bear on a print publication, the seasonally appropriate “Sun Worshipers.” Featuring work by 26 of the city’s most interesting artists, the art book has more than 100 pages of stunning images and artworks, like “Connotations,” by Shaun Kardinal, seen above. Apodaca’s Minnie Mouse obsession makes an appearance, as well.

“Sun Worshipers” has already had a New York release (dahling!), and this Saturday (July 21) Stinson will unleash this arts compendium on its hometown. Also part of the celebration is photographer Ross Laing’s book “HELLAWASTED,” which is essentially a photo journal of his past year. He was, presumably, wasted. Robot Romantic and the wonderfully named (and very heady) Hair and Space Museum will also play live sets.

elephants on parade fill this tiny street, and the weather is changing.   Tall flowers still glimmer intoxication from their suns daily worship as it smells of cotton candy on a sticky day from a time that was simple, like your rumored lips hanging tight upon my skin.  Apple pies and beautiful lies, as the blue sky is as mesmerizing as each cloud painted to perfection. We drop coins in fortune teller machine’s to see what our hearts bring, and my breath beats heavy because I can’t see anything else.
