Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.

Morbid but cool.


100 points to gryffindor if you can tell the difference between a leaf-toed bug and an assassin bug just by looking at it.

My thoughts are 500% with you and every other american sharing your experience and your fear. There’s nothing I can say to express how much my heart goes out to you and yours. It is no way to live, especially in a country which boasts of freedom and shared privilege. I don’t even know what can be said, but your experience deserves an audience, so I’m publishing this.


Q
I live in the States. I am disgusted and terrified. I am afraid of the things going on in my country that are being perpetuated by people in my country. I feel powerless about it, like I can do nothing but watch.

I’m not in the states, and I think our helplessness is pretty shared. I’m not even gonna pretend to know what exactly can be done, or to what effect, but I will encourage discussion.
Talk about it. Tell your friends and family, discuss it loudly in public, be outraged, encourage outrage. Don’t worry about being “that guy” when something is so out of control, so close to your home. Discuss it with everyone. Loudly, passionately.


Q
Um, what exactly is happening right now that the world is watching?

there’s something ironic about that

There are folks out there who’d like to think it’s so contained.


someone tried to correct my last post with the word “country” instead of “world”. Maybe they don’t understand we’re not “american” nor are we situated in america hm.


Ferguson, the world is watching. 


Q
You are seriously 12...?

Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.

But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point

This whole situation is really cementing the whole “dispotian Sci-Fi is just the shit that happens to everyone else happening to white people” saying, because every day this situation is looking more and more like something you’d expect to see in a Judge Dredd comic before a real modern American town

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

Rest in peace.
