Skull with Burning Cigarette by Vincent van Gogh (1885)
I was in a pub the other night and there was a table with a Van Gogh skull painted on/transferred onto it. I can’t find the precise painting, but it was similar to this one.
I pointed it out to the people I was with, with enthusiasm. It took me two attempts to get them to turn and look. They observed “yeah?” without enthusiasm.
People I go to pubs with don’t care about the right things.
I normally go into my conversations with a set of proven questions to ask, that I find will elicit a wide variety of anecdotes from people’s lives: happiest moment, saddest moment, things like that. But with people fleeing war, it is absolutely impossible to discuss anything beyond the present moment. Their circumstances are so overpowering, there is absolutely zero room in their minds for any other thoughts. The conversation immediately stalls, because any topic of conversation beyond their present despair seems grossly inappropriate. You realize that without physical security, no other layers of the human experience can exist. “All day they do is cry for home,” she told me. (Dohuk, Iraq)
I adore this every time. And I LOVE that you catch James cracking up in the fourth gif

Nicky looks like my imaginary friend.
Admittedly, my imaginary friend is a glittery, manic, 700 foot welshman, but still…

In Roman community baths, it was customary for men to stand and applaud when a well-endowed peer entered the water.
why are men so weird everywhere always (x)
i just imagined this and cannot stop laughing
I wonder if the women did the same…I’d like a world where it’s acceptable to go into the public bath houses and no one gives a fuck that you’re naked. Better yet you feel liberated enough to comment on how nice someone looks today, and not feel awkward about the nice comment.
Like oh hi Domica, your hair looks nice today.
Well thank you, you know I was just thinking I wish I had your hips, no really, you’re so lucky. And Mav, gosh her belly is just so cute. Don’t even get me started on Cornellia’s breasts, Venus incarnate right there. Ah well, at least I’ve got nice thighs.
"That’s the nicest vuvla I’ve seen all week, Lucia what is your secret?!"
