UBUNTU

Ask me anything   Well folks...here I am. Chad is the name.

I have started a tumblr to have a place to hoard cool pictures from the internet, share stories that inspire me, and to explore what inspires others. I live in Denver Colorado, and my primary interests are urban sustainability, particularly in regards to food, bulldogs, beautiful bottom boys, queers, architecture, design, plants (especially orchids), gardening, friendship, love,beer, and the envisioning of a better world. Oh and I'm a half Buddhist allergic to meditating, and in love with it.

Amsterdam-based sculptor Cedric Laquieze decorates real cat and dog skeletons with colorful fake flowers to create some of the insect sculptures you’ve ever seen.

Do these not blow your mind? Composed of bones, plants, feathers, and insect parts, these fairies are the inspired creations of Cedric Laquieze, an Amsterdam based sculptor and recent graduate from the Rietveld academy (class of 2010). There is much more where these came from and I definitely recommend a trip to Cedric’s blog where you can view not only his fairies but also his flower creatures and goddesses – all of which are fantastic!

A THIRD OF OUR LIVES

“Now, blessings light on him that first invented sleep!   It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot.  It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even. “
-Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605

In 1888 actress Ellen Terry performed the role of Lady Macbeth at London’s Lyceum Theatre while wearing an awesome green gown bedecked with the 1,000 sloughed-off wings of the jewel beetle. It quickly became one of the most celebrated costumes of the Victorian era, immortalized in a portrait painted by John Singer Sargent.

126 years is a long time and over the years Dame Terry’s dress experienced all sorts of wear and tear and numerous alterations. But after 1,300 hours of painstaking work over and £50,000 ($81,000) in expenses, this magnificent costume has been restored to its original glory.

Work began on the gown two years ago after a successful fundraising campaign, but restoring the beetle wings wasn’t the most difficult task. “We had collected the beetle wings that had fallen off over the years,” says Paul Meredith, house manager at Smallhythe Place, where the dress now resides, “so that the conservator was able to reattach many of the originals, plus others that had been donated to us—1,000 in total.” The restoration team patched the 100 or so broken wings using small pieces of Japanese tissue and wheat starch paste.
