So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.
This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3
Oh, hey, remember when I said this would be a monthly log? Whoops. There should be more consistency in the future, as I didn’t want to make too many posts before noticeable changes happened. Anyway, I’ve been on HRT for two months and eleven days at 1mL every two weeks. There
may be will definitely be TMI under the cut.
What does kindness get you? This.

The noise I made when the girl came back was ungodly I am crying so hard
Getting back on the drawing wagon after months and the first two things sketched out are a full body portrait of St. Michael the Archangel and a drawing of Silver Age Superman going birding. It’s a start.
Because of quite possibly the stupidest sleep-deprivation-driven headcanon I or anyone has come up with, I decided to replace all the songs in Les Mis with Billy Joel songs. This playlist is the result.

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.
Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.
Now HERE’S a good goddamn glimpse at breast cancer. Fuck your “save second base” bullshit. -C
these survivors couldn’t give a fuck about second base
Rome two centuries older than previously thought
(source, translation mine)
According to legend and historical research, Rome was founded in 753 BC by Romulus. Its birthday is April 21, but I’ll write about that in a separate post. Today, new findings in the area of the Lapis Niger (Latin for “Black Stone”, whom many believe to be the place where Romulus was buried - or killed) demonstrated that there was human activity in that particular area, which is part of the Foro Romano, at least two centuries before the date of the foundation of Rome.
Archaeologist Patrizia Fortini, in charge of the Foro Romano area for the Archeological Superintendency of Rome, found blocks of tufo that dated back to the 9-10th century BC, used to contain the waters of river Spino. Researchers also discovered shards of ceramic and remains of cereals, which prove that there was frequent human activity in the Forum way before Romulus’s time. New technologies aided the researches by providing 3D adaptations of the drawings made by Giacomo Boni, who led the first excavations on the site in 1899-1901.
The Superintendency also recently opened the Forum to Google’s Street View, with a really nice photo gallery. Rome is currently about 2767 years old. I’ll be updating as soon as more information on the matter is available, for now this is all I could find, so don’t take it as absolute truth.
Well these news will make Andrea Carandini a happy man, he has been claming the discovery of the original walls of the VIII century BCE Rome for years, the famous Romulus’s Walls, and no one believed him.
