archiemcphee:

This pleasingly placid behemoth is the Hope Hippo, a delightful depiction of a serenely wallowing hippo that’s made of mud and displayed with a live person sitting atop it reading a newspaper. The installation was created in 2005 by Allora & Calzadilla, a collaborative duo of visual artists based in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Some of the most beautiful private libraries in the world

After my previous post of some of the world’s most amazing public libraries, I got curious about some of the best libraries in private homes. Some of these are equally amazing. I’d always known that my dream library would have multiple levels and one of those cool library staircases (I mean that’s standard, right?) but now I know it should have a stunning view too. These are just incredible.

I DON’T UNDERSTAND. I WAS FOLLOWING THE GARMIN. IT SHOULD BE RIGHT HERE.
WERE YOU FOLLOWING YOUR EYES? BECAUSE THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY. WHY DID WE EVEN GET OUT OF THE CAR?
I SPENT LIKE, $200 ON THAT THING.
SERIOUSLY, WHY DID WE GET OUT OF THE CAR?

fauxnefarious:

“Love Interruption” was Jack White’s first single off Blunderbuss. The instrumentation, the lyrics, the way their voices sound together, it’s just too good.

Good stuff.
