Citation reblogué depuis I Really Should be Sleeping Right Now avec 4 749 notes

The first time he calls you holy,
you laugh it back so hard your sides hurt.
The second time,
you moan gospel around his fingers
between your teeth.
He has always surprised
you into surprising yourself.
Because he’s an angel hiding his halo
behind his back and
nothing has ever felt so filthy
as plucking the wings from his shoulders—
undressing his softness
one feather at a time.
God, if you’re out there,
if you’re listening,
he fucks like a seraphim,
and there’s no part of scripture
that ever prepared you for his hands.
Hands that map a communion
in the cradle of your hips.
Hands that kiss hymns up your sides.
He confesses how long he’s looked
for a place to worship and,
oh,
you put him on his knees.
When he sinks to the floor and moans
like he can’t help himself,
you wonder if the other angels
fell so sweet.
He says his prayers between your thighs
and you dig your heels into the base of his spine
until he blushes the color of your filthy tongue.
You will ruin him and he will thank you;
he will say please.
No damnation ever looked as cozy as this,
but you fit over his hips like they
were made for you.
You fit, you fit, you fit.
On top of him, you are an ancient god
that only he remembers and he
offers up his skin.
And you take it.
Who knew sacrifice was so profane?
And once you’ve taught him how to hold
your throat in one hand
and your heart in the other,
you will have forgotten every other word,
except his name.
PROFANE, by Ashe Vernon (via 5000letters)

ASMR introductory post

ASMR, autonomous sensory meridian response, is the term given to a group of relaxing and pleasurable psycho-physical sensations caused by various stimuli.  It is a new concept, and as yet has little scientific study, although I for one am convinced that it is like a watered-down version of meditation.  Many people use ASMR to relax themselves during the day or to fall asleep.  Some sleep doctors have suggested fears that habitually using ASMR to sleep, like white noise machines, may eventually make it difficult to find sleep without them; that should be kept in mind, but I am not overly concerned myself.

ASMR videos are usually designed for binaural (3D) sound, and should thus be watched with earphones/headphones.  If you’re like me, you feel awkward about things and would be much happier watching ASMR if nobody is behind you.

With that introduction finished, I give you videos:

I’m convinced this sampler video is the best possible introduction to the genre of ASMR

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOPzEdrZ_q8&list=UU4YDVivhPsOEuyl1-WwLA-w

What many people end up preferring are roleplays; here is a fairly standard example of a roleplay

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=perhSwA2nBM&list=UU4YDVivhPsOEuyl1-WwLA-w

Here is a very long (click through to later sounds when you get bored; at least, that’s what I tend to do) video of a much more abstract type; very cut down to form; long, no-frills ASMR

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAMdMIA53eA&list=UU2eddeJoyByJBjE4CYXwNXQ

Another thing many people like is exploring videos in different accents and languages, thus I give you a (Parisienne) French doctor roleplay

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pWwm9rDWEk&list=UUKxtuJv9fMuI1m-q7Edrsdg

If I am giving one languages, I cannot be true to myself without including the soothing sounds of German

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN_01ohz4Ds

If you like it, watch other videos by those artists and do youtube searches with “ASMR” and various keywords of things you want to see.  Since youtube does not allow for rewatching without internet, you may want to illegally download videos if you like them.  The artists probably wouldn’t mind at all.

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 


i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

Ferguson -2014

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.

Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.

Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening

^^^^^^^^^

Why does this still surprise people?

This country should never have been allowed to unite; is it any wonder there are cracks?

Things I absolutely love about this:

- Crown Princess Mary having to catch Prince Vincent
- Princess Josephine being, well, Princess Josephine
and finally
- Princess Isabella is having none of it

Substitution

thepotentiallyreverend:

Every time I visit the adoration chapel at my area’s traditional RC parish, I always seem to be the only person present and the adorer log shows the regular adorer not signing in. I’m starting to think God keeps bringing me in to be a substitute adorer sometimes. God’s trolling a bit though, as an Episcopalian is holding the fort :P

God does have that sort of humour.

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do


Awesome! Those forward-thinking Scandinavians!
