LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS NEAT THING OKAY?
Just to preface this, I don’t know if anyone else has posted this, so if you have, I’m sorry! I’m posting for anybody with any anxiety, stress, want to cool down from a rough day, or just need background noise to function!
This is a really neat site because you have more than one noise to choose from to listen to. If rain isn’t really your thing, they have crackling fire and breaking waves, and it’s just really relaxing. And you know what’s the coolest part about each noise? You can change the levels. You can slide and switch levels around to have the perfect amount of thunder, or light rain, or crackles in your fire, or foamy sea goodness! Each noise (to my knowledge) has 10 sliders for different sounds within said noise, so you can mix and listen for as long as you need! And if you don’t feel like mixing it yourself, there’s a neat button called “Animate” which allows the noise to evolve and change itself, so it gives it a little flavor.
It even has some that are specifically catering to mental health and sound therapy.
But really, I encourage everyone to at least try it out, it’s just super neat and it calms me down and serves as a nice low noise in the background if I need it for sleep or working on homework.
Seriously, this thing is awesome.
Oooh relaxing things
YEAHHH IT’S ANOTHER ONE
NO NO NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS IS A REALLY FAMOUS ANIMATION FILM TECHNIQUE DONE BY ONE INSANE STUDIO YEARS AND YEARS AGO IN GERMANY, ONLY A FEW FILMS, BECAUSE OF HOW HARD THEY WERE TO MAKE.
EACH AND EVERY FRAME OF THESE MOVIES ARE OIL PAINTINGS ON GLASS.
i’ve actually had this idea before but i never knew there was a studio that actually did it
This is from the film ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, directed by Russian animator Aleksandr Petrov. It was animated at a studio in Canada, not Germany, the animation itself handled mainly by Aleksandr and his son Dmitri Petrov. Production began in 1997 and the film was released in 1999. Though paint-on-glass is a laborious technique with few talented animators working in the medium Aleksandr Petrov has created several films using the process. In fact his most recent film ‘My Love’ was released in 2006-7. So check his work out if you haven’t. The ‘living painting’ effect achieved is very unique and beautiful.
This extension really does seem to help with reading long pieces of text on a laptop or mobile device screen; apparently I read 27% faster with it! It’s a pretty interesting, yet simple, concept. Give it a try, might help ya.
this could have made research projects so much easier. I could never get through online articles.
do you realize how much more i would be inclined to read and study a textbook if they were printed like this?
holy shit I would actually be able to read again
Sobbing with joy rn. I have never needed an extension more than I need this.
Clever, kind Turrell guidance at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
James Turrell is the rare contemporary artist whose work you actually HAVE to see in person. It does not really exist outside the physical experience of it.
Seeing Turrell installations (or whatever you call them) is for me at least actually transformative. You become aware that light is literally a thing, that your body changes the world merely by looking at it, and that paying attention to the barely visible can be utterly engrossing.
You can’t really describe this stuff without sounding like a total cheeseball, but it is still real.
Anyway, go see Turrell’s stuff whenever you get the chance.
This is a real website where you enter a name and it generates a hypothetical penis, complete with dimensions and an elaborate nickname
I know what you think I’m putting in but I have actually not recovered from my bewilderment sufficiently to put in anything
guys i just really want to share this with you
if you are looking for any music that you’d like just type a name of a band or a musican on the top-right search. then click on the black circle and choose “expand”. viola! now, you can continue doing this and find lots of music artists in your taste. thank you for the attention, and i hope you’ll find this post useful.
hot dads for all
MOVES TO JAPAN
god i clicked on the source expecting it to be a joke but it links to the actual site and they have a twitter and everything. i clicked on their about page and here’s the description:
"This is a service where you can rent a middle aged man with skill and experience who is undoubtedly good looking for just 1000 yen per hour!
You can make them go out with you, talk with you, do your errands, put them to work, or just hang out at home with you. How does it sound?”
One of them is a pro baseball player and the other one (the one pictured above) is a stylist. Reservations start at a minimum of 2 hours.
i’m going to cry i’m so tempted to actually do this.
OMFG The site even says “出張レンタルもOK♪（交通費は実費” Meaning that as long as you pay for their travel expenses, etc., they can come overseas too JFC SOMEONE STOP ME FROM—
