this collection was amazing


This is my collection so far! Its a little on the smaller side compared to what I’ve seen but I plan to get many more samples and crystals. I do need help identifying the last three stones, the one on the far right is a quartz of some sort but I have no idea what the two green crystals are. Thank you so much and I love your amazing blog :D

A beautiful collection. The piece on the right could possibly just be quartz or citrine. The one on the left could be jade or adventurine? As for the piece in the middle, i’m not quite sure. Maybe someone can help you out.

Trying to distract myself from news about Manchester. What's your favourite fluffy fics, the ones so sweet they give you toothache?

Anything by the amazing @effie214 is Pure Gold, including her collection of prompt ficlets “throw your soul through every open door” (I started reading it at work and oops, where did the last hour go?)

And omg at “staying safe never looked so cute” by @sarcasticfina (I FORGOT HOW FLUFFY IT IS OMG) and this one also by Lee? The fluff is so Pure: “patch it up and sew it shut (my scars are all but gone)” 

And these Epic Fluff Beauties (this is accidentally dirty) by @anthfan “Somewhere Between the Thirty-Second and Thirty-Third Floor” and “Nine Minutes.” 

AND THEN THIS OMG: “You are the best thing (that’s ever been Mine)” by weonlyliveonce.

There’s so many and they are needed right now. So everyone should

Reblog with your fluffy fic recommendations!

“The idea was really having this desire for live drums, as well as questioning, really, why and what is the magic in samples? Why for the last 20 years have producers and musicians been extracting these little snippets of audio from vinyl records? What kind of magic did it contain? Because harmonically the samples are just an F minor or a G flat, something not so special. It occurred to us it’s probably a collection of so many different parameters; of amazing performances, the studio, the place it was recorded, the performers, the craft, the hardware, recording engineers, mixing engineers, the whole production process of these records that took a lot of effort and time to make back then. It was not an easy task, but took a certain craftsmanship somehow cultivated at the time. ” - Thomas Bangalter [x]


So a sweet lesbian couple who have been regulars at our store for years are moving and planning on traveling and can’t take their tank and they brought us their amazing collection of plecos to put in our 40,000 gallon tank and this one was by far my favorite. It’s known as a vampire lyretail pleco and I squealed when I saw it.

I’m going to post the other things they brought us too.

The tank they had their collection in was something like 275 gallons and they were all so well taken care of. Some of these fish are probably at least fifteen years old

Idlers 12 hours of Motegi with RWB - Part 1

Last July I attended the Idlers 12 hours of Motegi with team RWB. We traveled through the night before the event from the RWB HQ in Chiba to the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Tochigi. I took these shots at a gas station on the way. The seven noisy RWB race cars showing up in the dead of night along with an army of RWB race drivers, crew members and photographers from around the world certainly brought the sleepy service area to life.

As you can see, the cars are all road registered and were driven to the event on public roads; no flatbeds, no trucks. It was a good chance to check the cars were all running smoothly. I actually traveled with RWB regular Alex Kyo in one of Nakai-San’s 993s. It was a real thrill to be a part of that journey, travelling in convoy, in the dead of night, on a Japanese highway with so many incredible cars.

I have a huge collection of photos from this event. It was an amazing experience and definitely a highlight since I started Rapid Japan. Part 2 coming soon.

Taipei, home to 2.7 million people and the capital of Taiwan, has a rather large bicycle secret hidden among the tight streets and winding alleyways. It can be best described as an unbelievable, jaw dropping treasure trove. The private collection of Asahi Chang contains more than 600 professional track and road bikes. It is the largest of it’s kind in the world, unavailable for public viewing. The location is a very well kept secret. We were lucky enough to have a peek inside the collection that has been nick named, “单车书房” - Bicycle Heaven.


The amazing last few pieces added to my collection from @bekkathyst (as always)

I’m absolutely in LOVE with every point (that baby fluorite is super colorful omg), the dagger has an awesome golden flash, and the obsidian mirror speaks for itself!

Basically, I’m in love with all of them and she remains one of the best mineral and jewelry shops ever.
