BAGH

Hi. My name is Ben. I reblog stuff I like, which tends to vary quite a lot. I also post about my life occasionally. I'm 20 and a senior in college (which is scary) with an individual major combining digital media and programming with the fine arts. That's about it.

Hiatus for a bit. Anticipated return April 19th.

ART: Leonid Tishkov Travels The World With His ‘Private Moon’

From the Arctic to America, artist Leonid Tishkov has travelled the world with his illuminated crescent-shaped moon, bringing a sense of lyricism, and sometimes whimsy, to the places he lands.

People think they know darkness, and that they experience darkness everyday, but they don’t, really.

Across the United States, natural darkness is an endangered resource. East of the Mississippi, it is already extinct; even in the West, night sky connoisseurs admit that it’s quicker to find true darkness by flying to Alice Springs, Australia, than traveling to anywhere in the lower forty-eight.
Ever since the nation’s first electric streetlight made its debut in Cleveland, on April 29, 1879, the American night has become steadily brighter. In his new book, The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light, Paul Bogard aims to draw attention to the naturally dark night as a landscape in its own right — a separate, incredibly valuable environmental condition that we overlook and destroy at our own peril.

"…after the Northridge earthquake in 1994, the L.A.P.D. was flooded with worried phone calls because people were seeing all these mysterious lights in the sky — lights that turned out to be stars.”
"I’ve heard that one, too — that people were seeing the Milky Way for the first time, and they didn’t know what it was."
wow. 
this is worth reading guys.

I remember very clearly the last time I could see the stars well - this past summer I visited relatives in the Adirondacks in New York, they have a cabin with no electric light and the nearest streetlight is across the lake. At night we went out to a rocky outcrop with flashlights, turned them off, lay down, and looked up at the stars. It was magical.For those who haven’t truly seen the stars… find a way.  It’s incredible.

We did a “First Kiss” experiment and asked 15 homophobic people to hug a gay stranger. 

And guess what. It wasn’t so bad.

HOLY SHIT THIS WAS INCREDIBLE!!!!

"I think your whole sex thing is kind of gross."

"You remind me of my husband."

"Look at you! You’re gorgeous."

If I could take the phobe out of homophobe by just giving people a hug I TOTALLY WOULD. UGH.

Artist Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto, Canada in 1959. During his childhood, he developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media.  By age twelve, his awareness of architecture grew as he learned perspective techniques and began to do his first paintings and renderings of imagined buildings.

My poor brain, I need to lay down

“Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.”

The Pervocracy: Consent culture. (via notemily)

it’s especially important to practice this with KIDS. Kids need to know it’s ok to say no to giving auntie a hug and kiss. it’s ok to say no to getting up on stage at a children’s show or activity. it’s ok to say no. please teach your children this!
