Playfulness

Hello! I'm Ivan, 22, from Russia/Sweden. This is my tumblog about things I find beautiful, things I find amusing and everything else that might get me excited.

Ложные друзья - False friends.

russiangrammar:

'False friends' is a linguistic term referring to words from one language that look and sound dangerously close to another, yet have a completely different meaning. Inevitably, this often results in howlers when misunderstandings occur.

Subversive gardening: ‘urban plant tags’ : taking care of cities in the same way we take care of plants!
by carmichael collective (by carmichael lynch) of minneapolis, minnesota, USA.
"The series of magnified nursery style plant tags are outfitted with descriptions of the required care systems for the necessary sidewalk fixtures planted in the ground. in the artist’s project, common tools provided to the public by local and federal governments such as lamp posts, benches, mailboxes, or cautionary signs for drivers have been given markers indicating how to keep each object alive.”

Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this…

The wondrous moment of our meeting…
Still I remember you appear
Before me like a vision fleeting,
A beauty’s angel pure and clear.

In hopeless ennui surrounding
The worldly bustle, to my ear
For long your tender voice kept sounding,
For long in dreams came features dear.

Time passed. Unruly storms confounded
Old dreams, and I from year to year
Forgot how tender you had sounded,
Your heavenly features once so dear.

My backwoods days dragged slow and quiet —
Dull fence around, dark vault above —
Devoid of God and uninspired,
Devoid of tears, of fire, of love.

Sleep from my soul began retreating,
And here you once again appear
Before me like a vision fleeting,
A beauty’s angel pure and clear.

In ecstasy my heart is beating,
Old joys for it anew revive;
Inspired and God-filled, it is greeting
The fire, and tears, and love alive.

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

I’d give anything for this to happen. I just want closure.
