I was told
The average girl begins to plan her wedding at the age of 7
She picks the colors and the cake first
By the age of 10 
She knows time,
And location
By 17
She’s already chosen a gown
2 bridesmaids
And a maid of honor
By 23 
She’s waiting for a man
Who wont break out in hives when he hears the word “commitment”
Someone who doesn’t smell like a Band-Aid drenched in lonely
Someone who isn’t a temporary solution to the empty side of the bed
Who’ll hold her hand like it’s the only one they’ve ever seen
To be honest
I don’t know what kind of tux I’ll be wearing
I have no clue what want my wedding will look like
But I imagine
The women who pins my last to hers
Will butterfly down the aisle
Like a 5 foot promise
I imagine
Her smile
Will be so large that you’ll see it on google maps
And know exactly where our wedding is being held
The woman that I plan to marry
Will have champagne in her walk
And I will get drunk on her footsteps
When the pastor asks
If I take this woman to be my wife
I will say yes before he finishes the sentence
I’ll apologize later for being impolite
But I will also explain him
That our first kiss happened 6 years ago
And I’ve been practicing my “Yes”
For past 2, 165 days
When people ask me about my wedding
I never really know what to say
But when they ask me about my future wife
I always tell them
Her eyes are the only Christmas lights that deserve to be seen all year long
I say
She thinks too much
Misses her father
Loves to laugh
And she’s terrible at lying
Because her face never figured out how to do it correctly
I tell them
If my alarm clock sounded like her voice
My snooze button would collect dust
I tell them
If she came in a bottle
I would drink her until my vision is blurry and my friends take away my keys
If she was a book
I would memorize her table of contents
I would read her cover-to-cover
Hoping to find typos
Just so we can both have a few things to work on
Because aren’t we all unfinished?
Don’t we all need a little editing?
Aren’t we all waiting to be proofread by someone?
Aren’t we all praying they will tell us that we make sense
She don’t always make sense
But her imperfections are the things I love about her the most
I don’t know when I will be married
I don’t know where I will be married
But I do know this
Whenever I’m asked about my future wife
I always say
…She’s a lot like you

Fan Art of the Day: Dragon Skull Sculpture Inspired by Game of Thrones

The UK video-on-demand company Blinkbox built a giant Dragon skull partially buried at the Chartmouth beach in Dorset, England to celebrate the release of Game of Thrones episodes on the streaming service. According to Blinkbox, the installation was inspired by a scene wherein Arya Stark discovers a dragon skull while exploring the Red Keep’s dungeons and it took three artists more than two months to sculpt it, which measures 40 feet long and 8 feet high. The location was chosen due to the prevalence of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous rocks that can be found along the English coastline aptly nicknamed “The Jurassic Coast.”

She may have looked normal on the outside, but once you’d seen her handwriting you knew she was deliciously complicated inside.

A Building Made Of Books

The Scanner by Matej Krén: a tower made of thousands of thin books. Inside is a tunnel lined with mirrors creating the illusion of an infinite number of books.


lCarsten Nicolai - Syn Chron (2004)

Artist’s statement:

Syn Chron is an integral sculpture of light, sound and architecture. The translucent skin of the crystal-shaped body besides its function to define the spatial structure of the object additionally serves as an interface for a synchronized play of light and sound.

The object at the same time is a room for spatial experience, an acoustic resonance body, and a projection surface. the visitor is witness to an interplay of electronic sound – transmitted onto the surface of the crystal shape – and programmed laser beams that are visible both on the outside and the inside. 

Syn Chron hereby creates an synaesthetic experience: on the level of human perception space, light and sound blend into each other to form a holistic experience.”
