Life is a blur. Its a dervish of wondrous whimsy.


This is an inspiration blog. I find beautiful, nerdy, quirky, and cute things that I love, which are then juxtaposed to show you how I see the world.

Have I mentioned my love affair with Netflix?  I love that they have Season 1 of Invader Zim on instant and that I’m watching it from the first episode.  I actually never got to watch it as a kid so I’m making up for lost time now.  I always wondered why so many people were walking around with hot topic Gir sweat shirts (besides that its trendy like jack skeleton) and I totally get it now.  Gir is fucking adorable.

Lemony Snicket:  Sanctuary&#8230; is a word which here means a small, safe place in a troubling world. Like an oasis in a vast desert or an island in a stormy sea.

The wolf thought to himself, &#8220;Now there is a tasty bite for me. Just how are you going to catch her?&#8221; Then he said, &#8220;Listen, Little Red Cap, haven&#8217;t you seen the beautiful flowers that are blossoming in the woods? Why don&#8217;t you go and take a look? And I don&#8217;t believe you can hear how beautifully the birds are singing. You are walking along as though you were on your way to school in the village. It is very beautiful in the woods.&#8221; - The Brothers Grimm

This is a little animation created by the very dark and talented Mikeinel.  It’s a bittersweet and tender story of surreal sacrifice.
