They look totally like people you could see walking around (in a fashionable place) today. Except for the marble.

I read one of the "OMGOMGOMG stop reading at night you'll kill yourself!!" articles, in which it recommended "f.lux" which is a program that automatically turns down the lights from your computer screens (based on the time & your longitude & latitude) at night to help to prepare your brain for sleep, & turns up the lights in the day.

Here's the article (followed by the link to f.lux):
Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.

Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically.
I downloaded it & have put it. I can shut it off for an hour at a time, or change the colors/light possible. And it will take a few days to adjust. It might be interesting.

Carnies and circus folk the way they were meant to be shown:

Un-ironic. Sometimes you just want to get back to the real.

An article from

I still don't believe the photo of Hitler but the photo of "Tank Man" at Tiananmen Square before he stood in front of the tanks is pretty wild.

Travel posters with a vintage/Art Deco feel, but designed for the Star Wars universe.

If Star Wars was Real. Great Photoshop work showing Storm Troopers in WWII Japan, Frank Sinatra singing with some of those musicians at the bar on Mos Eisley, etc.

WTF III. Very odd photos, including a shout-out to Janesville, WI.

8 words that may not mean what you think they mean

I got at least a few of these wrong. I'm good on "unique", but not on "comprise". Something to remember.

Elizabeth Kubler Ross said, “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”


Makes me think I have to stop being so cranky.
