Hey, here’s a special ~Acoustic Mix~ of “Summer of ‘09”. No specific reason. Not a release or a preview of any upcoming thing. Just for shits.
I originally wrote this song back in 2010 for my album Erase This, but it didn’t really fit with the rest of that album. So I gave it to ALL CAPS and they recorded it for their album Bmin/E.
Then when christiancaldeira and I started The Caulden Road, we re-recorded the song with meghantonjes in 2011. You can stream/buy our original studio rock version on our website. Or just listen to this acoustic mix. =)
Gah, I love Christian and Meghan’s voices. ♥ ♥ ♥
Alan, this is GORGEOUS.
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
If there’s a “heavens no” and a “hell yes” why isn’t there a “purgatory maybe”

my dog is getting scared of the storm so he’s hiding in the cat basket
YOU’RE NOT A CAT
YOU DON’T EVEN FIT IN IT
ART ASSIGNMENT #11. in the style of Barbara Kruger’s famous “your gaze hits the side of my face”, i created a similar image except with a more crude connotation. the original, which brilliantly points out the sexism of not listening to women but instead looking at them, focuses on the face, while this one brings to life the more common phrase, “my eyes are up here”. i have personally dealt with harassment and this pretty much says it all
I also like that there is a feeling that the gaze is what is at eye level, making the figure larger in stature than the subject of the text.
Some call me … Tim.
OMG OKAY THIS IS GOLD. The pallas cat at my local zoo apparently does this, and there’s a little sort of kid-level viewing window into its habitat, and the keeper in that area told me that the pallas cat likes to hide beneath the window. So when the kids press their faces up to the glass, searching the exhibit for the animal, the pallas cat suddenly pops up directly in front of their faces and scares the ever-loving shit out of them. Pallas cat: recreationally scares children. Tell your friends.
I AM FREAKING CRYIN’
IT GOT BETTER
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I have a love for her that runs deep.
My neighbor’s puppy found a hole in the fence, so he popped by to say hello yesterday.
I don’t know the source for this otherwise I’d give it
but this is the most amazing solution to the biggest Harry Potter mystery
