A mountain scene carved in white jade from Ge’ermu

DAAAAAMNN BABY GOT BACK LIGHTING!!!!

Can we give some props to the photographers here? Look at the genius in backlighting it. It looks all dreamy.

Even cooler: This isn’t even actually all that old. It’s actually done by a contemporary master.

You should really hit up the jump for a pretty stunning archaic bronze/jade carving hybrid with equally awesome back lighting,

Noah Webster is the source, and he actually was trying to do just that! He wanted to get rid of British influence from the new nation’s language. Unfortunately, his proposals were widely considered too radical. English would be a lot more phonetically logical if his proposals went through…though we have a lot more richness to the language as it is.

I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.

Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon whose abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!

I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.

Scenery with lots of Pokemon in it by request. Well, here it is, guys - the post you’ve been waiting for! Please click the ‘Artist’ link to full view the picture - trust me, it’s worth it. Thank you so much to the artist mr—jack for drawing this, it’s one of the best Pokemon pictures I’ve ever seen.

Someone asked me for a wallpaper including Water Pokemon, so I thought I’d repost this. It’s my desktop background right now.

Please don’t let your Pokemon near your computer

SPEAKING AS SOMEONE WHO HAS HAD TO SIFT THROUGH AT LEAST A TRILLION PICTURES OF POKEMON PORN, I HAVE NEVER SYMPATHIZED WITH A FICTIONAL NON-HUMAN CHARACTER MORE.

China's most revered female poet was a lot more than you think she was

fuckyeahchinesemyths:

Women often destroyed their own writing or male writers would co-opt and manipulate women’s poems to serve a male audience. Since male poets of the Song dynasty frequently impersonated female voices, and Li Qingzhao would have studied these poets and known their verses well, Egan posits, why wouldn’t a woman writer of the same period use the same strategy?

Highlighting this quote here because it made me realize how male-centric the literati was during that time. It’s a good read, and maybe I should do a post about her. Hmmm
