Bear and City is occasionally Not Safe for Work and is only for people 18 years of age or older.
Like a lot of Tumbler blogs, this one is a mix of things I like: mature, large and possibly naked men artistically arranged (more or less), science fictional stuff, cities, fantasy, art, architecture, culture, cute animals, zoologia, occasional politics, steampunk.
Click the Archive link above; it's a good way to see all the stuff posted here in mosaic format. It's pretty cool, and forms a kind of visual gestalt of some of what goes on inside my head. You'll tend to see a lot more naked men in the older parts (I've toned that down a bit lately).
Thanks to all the people with great blogs, and thanks to everyone 'following' me here--it's appreciated. If you've followed me and I haven't followed back, please don't be miffed. I'm following well over 400 people myself, and, y'know, there are limits. If you think I'd really like you're content, feel free to use the Ask link and ask for a follow. I'll definitely consider it.
While islamic architectonics range from the grand to the vernacular the competition called for a distinct and inviting mark on the landscape that could serve as both an urban orientation device and yet seamlessly weave into the existing built environment. The proposal seeks to mediate the complex balance of historically shaped program and a new language of spiritual invitation through formal abstraction and a rich material palette.
Recent events have made it clear that we are suffering from a broken moral compass. People today could use some general guidance.
Since the original ten commandments seem somewhat narrow and obsolete (too much focus on livestock, servants, and jealous god issues), here is a modest first draft of a fresh set.
You shall treat all people with respect regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin.
You shall not kill, assault, nor intimidate with threats of physical violence.
You shall not rape, sexually coerce, nor intimidate with threats of sexual violence.
You shall cultivate intellectual curiosity, be open to new ideas, and respect the scientific method.
You shall not cheat, nor cheat others out of what is rightfully theirs.
You shall not lie, deceive, nor spread lies about others.
You shall not steal, that is to say take or use what rightfully belongs to another person in a manner that causes harm. (Stealing is a trickier concept than it once was. How do you say yes to Fair Use and no to software patents?)
You shall keep your promises.
You shall not waste natural resources nor pollute the shared environment.
You shall take responsibility for your actions and their consequences.
Great. Re-post this everywhere and maybe it will sink in.
Also known as Berry’s bobtail squid, the hummingbird bobtail squid is a species of bobtail squid found throughout the warm waters of eastern Asia. Like most bobtail squid, berry’s bobtail squid has a light organ in its gill cavity which emits light to help it hide its silhouette from predators. During the day the hummingbird bobtail squid can be found buried in the sediment, at night they will emerge to feed on small invertebrates like shrimp and other crustaceans.
