THERE IT IS AGAIN! THERE IT FUCKING IS! i’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS PHOTO FOR YEARS AND NEVER COULD FIND IT!! THE LAN PARTY WITH THE GUY DUCT-TAPED TO THE CEILING!! BACK IN ANCIENT TIMES WHEN PEOPLE STILL USED CATHODE MONITORS AND WHEN COUNTERSTRIKE WAS THE NEW THING. THIS SHIT IS REAL. THIS IS REAL SHIT. SHIT THAT HAPPENED.
This photo was taken for my Digital Photography class. I was in the sunken garden room at the Conservatory in Como Park. I took nine consecutive photos and used the photo stitching feature in PhotoShop to bring them together. This is how I achieved the depth in the photo.
This was delivered via my secret email account.
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
What is this bird? Like it speaks with such clarity and read her expression so fast?
This is fascinating
The only information I have about this young woman is this description: Indígena de la clase rica (Mestiza sangley-filipina). Photograph by the Dutch photographer, Francisco van Camp, ca. 1875. She’s a Chinese matiza from the Philippines. I don’t know if standards of beauty were the same in the 19th century, but by today’s standards, she’s absolutely stunning.

Artist James Kerr creates incredibly weird gifs out of Renaissance art and it’s all pretty incredible.
