Hi, I'm Emily. These are the things that make me smile. I hope you do too.
These are some things that you might like to know…. I was not born in a hospital. I lived in a hotel in Denmark for third grade. I now live on a farm that “grows” paintballs, golf balls, blackberries and cherries. I work in a hippie health food store. I have never had a shot. I have matching scars on my ankles and knees because I am a rock star. I have never bought a Halloween costume. I collect keys, the majority of which are to the sewers of Spotsylvania, Virginia. I have been to both of my namesakes; one is a desert, the other - a city. I am German, Irish, Danish, Czech, Slovak, Norwegian, Russian, Australian, and Colombian. I have two beds. One is a racecar; it does not have a mattress, and is filled with fabric. I have never seen “Titanic.” I know my way around New York better than I know my way around my home town. I have jumped down an elevator shaft. I can operate power tools that should never be allowed in my hands. I have no pulse in my neck and my heartbeat is not rhythmic. I am allergic to the antibiotics that should make me better. I can make a cup out of 20 dollars. I was a Purdue cheerleader at the age of four. I own a sari and a kimono; and I know how to tie both properly. I have made a teapot, an iPod, a mermaid, a neuron, Clifford, a beer mug and a Blue-Eyes White Dragon out of cake. I was raised by hippies to be a hippie. Oh, and I lie a lot.
I don’t even remember where I found this gif, but it’s fucking hilarious
Yesterday we had our presentation of our final garments in our last sewing class of the semester. I made a silk charmeuse and chiffon baby doll with appliqué lace and fluting, with a stretch lace boyshort to match. (this boyshort is what I had been trying to dye black for so long in my other post, finally got it) My inspiration was “Une Reverie de Paris” or “A Daydream of Paris”. I wanted the collection luxury loungewear to be soft romantic and feminine and have a very French feel to it. The collection is for a woman who appreciates luxury, romantic, delicate lingerie and would spend a significant amount for beautiful intimate apparel. The line would be sold in boutiques similar to Journelle or La Petit Coquette so that the customer has a nicer, more intimate shopping experience.
Completed May 2013.

For What’s it’s WorthWhether they are active or long dormant, mines speak of a combination of sacrifice and gain. Their features are crude, unsightly scars on the landscape – unlikely feats of hard labour and specialised engineering, constructed to extract value from the earth but also exacting a price.
These images combine photography and computer generated elements in an effort to visualise the output of a mine. The CGI objects represent a scale model of the materials removed from the mine, a solid mass occupying a scene which shows the ground from which it was extracted. By doing so, the intention is to create a kind of visualisation of the merits and shortfalls of mining in South Africa, an industry that has shaped the history and economy of the country so radically.
This is the first in a broader series of images, dealing with the extraction of precious metals and stones, possibly coal as well. For now, however, the project begins with the first mining operations in South Africa, removing copper from the arid Namaqualand region.
The country’s first ever commercial mine, the Blue Mine in Springbok, began operating in 1852. More mines opened soon after as copper deposits were discovered in the surrounding areas. This, in turn, boosted the development of small towns in a relatively remote area of the country, as workers settled nearby. By 2007, however, most of these mines had run their course and production had stopped almost completely. This presents an uncertain future for the towns and people of the region.
my mom is on the phone with my dad (a microbiologist) and she told him “go to bed, turn off the computer, and just, just don’t do science. don’t do any science”
First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.
Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!
God I’m excited about this.
So proud of Hank’s excellent new album.
Sleeping bag sofa - the need is so mighty.
