the secret with which I am acquainted

I see by your eagerness, and the wonder and hope which your eyes express, my friend, that you expect to be in formed of the secret with which I am acquainted. That cannot be.

The Narrator and Tyler





Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish. 


Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.

Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together. 

this continues to be the best reply to a criticizing comment on this site

I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.



Photo from jack’s website.
I have to tell you guys a story about tonight, bear with me. See in the bottom right of the photo the little girl with black sleeves next to the guy in yellow? That my cousin/part time kid I’ve helped raise as a nanny for 10 years. Tonight we went to the forecastle festival in Louisville to see jack. She’s a huge fan, she listens to him almost exclusively. So we camp in front of the stage alllllll day. She’s so tired but pushes through. Halfway through the show we see jack gesture towards her to his guy in the suit. A few minutes later the man in the suit is standing in front of us and goes “is she with you? Wanna finish watching the show from the stage?” !!!!! So they pull us over the barrier and take us backstage and up to the performance area right behind the piano! So he’s killing it, amazing show….. and she’s crying because she’s so nervous. She finally calms down and gets into it, clapping and stuff and jack starts to play 7 nation army. He’s doing the famous riff when he starts walking towards us. And keeps walking towards us until he’s right in front of her inches away playing just to her. Her eyes got sooo big and she froze lol Well the show ended and they all exited the stage, after a bit the man in the suit comes back and says follow me. He leads us to a small tent with some people in it and a couple of the band members. He offers us drinks and tells us to relax and rest. A few minutes later he comes up and we don’t realize it and he goes hey guys I want you to meet my friend jack! And there he was! He shook our hands and asked us a few questions then went around and met a couple other people. As he headed out he stopped and shook her hand one more time and goes “see ya Maci!” I was so touched he did that for her. The whole thing was the sweetest and most kind thing. We hung out a little more and Lillie Mae (the violin player) came in and chatted a bit with her too and the two of them ended up playing with some little magnet toys lol she’s never going to forget this night. jack white does so much for his fans. I’ve never seen a musician at his level do something so cool. Legend.

Reblogging this was a must.

That’s an amazing story. My run-ins with Jack White are mostly that, run-ins. As in, I ran into him coming out of bathroom at a club one night. Another time at a Grinderman show, I was moving to the back of the room to get more wide angle photos and backing up I step on someone behind me. I say I’m sorry and notice the boots and look up and it’s Jack White telling me, “It’s cool, Man.”

I had a thirteen year old roll their eyes at me when we were talking about what is punk and that shopping at Hot Topic wouldn’t and still doesn’t work for us old punks.

She just told me, “whatevs…”

You find your people, you play with your people, you find your way home, you sleep.
