Eerie, beautiful, captivating images of sea urchins mating and being born (that little triangle guy is a baby sea urchin).
These are a glimpse of how life begins in the deep ocean — and there’s a lot of life down there. The oceans provide about 190 times as much living space as every other space on Earth — soil, air and fresh water — put together. A vast array of amazing creatures live in the depths of this watery world. Squid, jellyfish, and plankton are just a few of our favorites (all shown as tiny babies in that last gif).

I’m strongly urchin you to fall in love with echinoderms. Such superb sea symmetry.

Pauline: Was den Vorgang selbst betrifft, ist es immer wieder interessant, sich mit Thomas Carlyles “Die Französische Revolution” zu befassen. (…)
Swan: Wie lautet seine Hypothese kurz zusammengefasst?
Pauline: Die Menschen sind dumm und böse, insbesondere die Franzosen. Sie lassen sich durch Macht immer leicht verführen und in den Wahnsinn treiben, weshalb sie von Glück sagen können, wenn sie überhaupt irgendeine gesellschaftliche Ordnung haben, aber je härter, desto besser.
Swan: Also gut, was ist dann die Synthese?
Pauline: Es liegt im besten Interesse des Einzelnen, allgemeines Wohlergehen zu erreichen. Menschen sind dumm und böse, aber manche Bedürfnisse sind so dringend, dass wir für deren Befriedigung arbeiten. Wenn sich die eigenen Interessen mit dem allgemeinem Wohlergehen decken, dann werden auch böse Menschen alles Nötige tun, um allgemeines Wohlergehen herbeizuführen.
Swan: Sie werden sogar eine Revolution durchführen.
Pauline: Ja.
Swan: Doch selbst wenn die bösen, schlauen Leute um ihrer selbst willen das tun, was für die Allgemeinheit gut ist, dann gibt es immer noch dumme Leute, die noch dazu böse sind, und die reiten dann alles in die Scheiße.

By Ainslie Henderson, this haunting video was created for the British band James' song Moving On — the animation is a stop-motion creation made from yarn and is one of the most emotional animations to feature as a music video that I've seen. Touching stuff.

Kirchner. Das expressionistische Experiment

Diese Ausstellung liegt nun eigentlich schon mehrere Wochen hinter mir, nur komme ich einfach nicht dazu meine Gedanken zu sammeln und alles auf den Punkt zu bringen. Irgendetwas habe ich vermisst und ich weiß bis heute nicht was es war. Die ausgestellten Arbeiten sind interessant und man versteht wie der rote Faden durch die Ausstellung und auch durch das Werk Kirchners verläuft. Aber irgendwie fehlte mir das “Bäähm”, “Kraaabuuum” oder auch ein “Oh”. Es fehlt mir so, dass ich noch nicht mal sagen könnte was mir am besten gefallen hat.

Yosemite Firefall
"The Yosemite Firefall was a summertime event that began in 1872 and continued for almost a century, in which burning hot embers were spilled from the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park to the valley 3,000 feet below.
It was conducted by the owners of the Glacier Point Hotel. The firefalls ended in January 1968 when the National Park Service ordered it to stop because of the overwhelming number of visitors it attracted, plus the fact that it was not a natural event. The hotel itself was destroyed by fire one year later and was not rebuilt.
The Firefalls were performed at 9pm seven nights a week.”
