n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk. - The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

Next Morrowind Meta is out!

In this episode, we do a bizarre chore for Mistress Therana’s mouth that ends with the smell of burnt hair, show you the location of a free glass weapon and talk about the size and statue of Vivec compared to other capital cities in The Elder Scrolls.

Seriously, we’re kind of ruthless.

Morrowind Meta is our attempt to play Morrowind and comment on aspects of The Elder Scrolls overall, including gameplay differences (between Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim), modding projects and trying to understand why Bethesda incorporated certain mechanical, graphical and design elements into each game.

“ The first time we came, the dogs were running around near their houses, guarding them, waiting for people to come back. They were happy to see us, they ran toward our voices. We shot them in the houses, and the barns, in the yards. We’d drag them out onto the street and load them onto the dump truck. It wasn’t very nice. They couldn’t understand: why are we killing them? They were easy to kill, they were household pets. They didn’t fear guns or people. They ran toward our voices. ”

Viktor Verzhikovskiy, Chairman of the Khoyniki Society of Volunteer Hunters and Fishermen, on exterminating the pet population following the Chernboyl disaster.

I’m spent my entire day getting wrapped up in this account of the disaster written by a Redditor. These quotes are sourced from this work.

Chernobyl fascinates me to no end, partly because of the horror, partly because of how it seems a tale of science fiction meets reality and partly because of the bravery of many of those involved.

To provide some context, here’s a quote from Nikolai Goshchitsky describing the pain that the surviving animals felt (many caught in the radioactive debris following the accident): 

“[They] crawled, half alive, along the road, in terrible pain. Birds looked as if they had crawled out of water… unable to fly or walk… Cats with dirty fir, as if it had been burnt in places.”

Anonymous asked:
where would i be able to buy prints?

Currently, nowhere, although if you get in touch with me (all my contact info is at the bottom of my page under “connect”), I could set something up one-on-one.

After Warped Tour next week I’m going to try to focus on setting up an online print store for my landscape/nature photos and probably a few select photos from other categories.

The issue with music prints (my most popular posts by a landslide) are that I need permission from the bands to sell their image (unless used in an editorial context, i.e. newspaper), and while it’s possible to set that up, I would need to figure out which of the many hundreds of concert photos I’ve taken have the highest demand.

I can’t imagine living in a place where it’s dreary and rainy all the time. This recent weather is enough to make you drink.

This is my most popular post ever.
In typical unpredictable tumblr fashion, this photo, one of the most uninspired and boring photos from my photo project last year (i.e. a “just get it done” photo), has become my most reblogged/liked photo by a landslide.
Also typical tumblr behavior, someone long ago deleted the caption, which is now occasionally replaced by random emoticons or a string of words with no context that I guess are supposed to describe what that person’s blog is like.
File this under the “nonsense of tumblr” folder.
But then again, I knew what I was signing up for.
