Confessions of a Coffeeholic

Read More

"You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary."

Andrew Wyeth (American, 1917-2009) - revisited
Wyeth remained a polarizing figure even as the traditional 20th century distinction between abstraction and avant-gardism on the one hand and realism and conservatism on the other came to seem woefully inadequate and false. The only indisputable truth was that his art existed within a diverse American context that encompassed illustrators like his father, N.C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell, and also landscape painters like John Marin, Winslow Homer, Albert Bierstadt and Fitz Hugh Lane. (x) (x) (x) (x)

are you surprised that the show has so many female fans?

you’re a piece of art that falls into the taste of women

this is also a perfect example of how to be the complete opposite of sir shitbag steven moffat when answering questions about female fans

This is Skunk Bear’s 100th post! It’s only right that we celebrate with a GIF that combines Charles Darwin and an internet meme.
Thanks for following, liking and reblogging! If you’re a new follower, here’s what we’re all about.

All I’m gonna say is that this GIF is massively relevant to 90% of the comments on my latest video. You can go read them, and maybe offer some science in response… but don’t say I didn’t warn you :)
Congrats, Skunkbear!
