This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.
Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

My friend Tyler is trying to lose weight and he asked my other friend Orlando to train him. Tyler was embarrassed to go to the gym though so Orlando is taking care of that by dressing up as characters when they go to the gym so that the focus isn’t on Tyler but on himself. So far Tyler has been trained by a Jedi and steampunk Batman. This is one of the nicest things I have ever seen done for someone else.
Orlando’s kindness blows me away.

Only if you message me off anon and talk to me about all the wonderful things you hope to do during your life. I can tell you my hopes and dreams and we can tell each other what scares us and what makes us sad. I will tell you how I felt while I was in high school and how hard it was to get out of bed on the worst days and how there would be months on end where I didn’t think I would see the next one. Or we can talk about the things that make us smile and all the places we want to see and things we want to do and people we want to kiss. So talk to me off anon and let us be the friend neither of us have but both of us need.
"I think, in my perfect world, I’m like this cool indie singer-songwriter but I’m not. I am totally like a pop person and I love pop music! But I don’t always feel like I fit in […] I don’t need a radio hit so bad that I am willing to do anything for it. At the end of the day the integrity of my art is way more important to me.”
This edition of Sherlock Holmes is one heavy bastard. The pages are really thin, almost like in a bible, and the letters are quite small. Very fond of it.
omg. ahh! Perks of being an amazing person (John Green)

Reblogging because it was the first time Sarah really appeared on YouTube and now she is hosting The Art Assignment with PBS Digital, and it’s so great and it debuts tomorrow and GO SUBSCRIBE.
Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.
Put me back in London. I need to get to know the place again- breathe it in. Feel every quiver of its beating heart.
