This beautiful mineral was recently sold for a whopping $5,000 by Rob Lavinsky of the Arkenstone. Measuring 9 x 7 x 6 centimeters, the stunning specimen is described as Chalcedony on Chrysocolla stalactites (pocket). With a blue-green chalcedony-crusted exterior, an unusual pocket that opens to reveal the highly textured interior, and assorted quartz-covered chrysocolla stalactites the color of icy glaciers, the mineral is truly a unique sight to behold.
Fun fact: a formation like this is called a “vug.”

I love Tumblr.
He picked me up a copy of the Labyrinth novelization today from the vendors’ room, not knowing I’d already bought one myself. So when he found that out, he went back and got me a cute piece of art instead.
Also, he gets me pho when I’ve been suddenly hit by the con crud.
… Clockodiles? Is that pun very bad?
somewhere captain hook is shitting himself
I guess the logical thing for me to want now is a Steampunk Peter Pan story with the crocodile being made of clockwork as seen above.
holy shit that would be amazing
Shower wine glass holder
My problem is, shit with suction cups NEVER stays up. This screams “sooner or later, a bathtub full of broken glass” to me.
Also, who drinks wine in the shower? The bathtub, definitely, but putting your drink in the shower is just going to water down your wine.
Wow, I’ve gotten like a ton of new followers in the last couple of weeks.
And by a ton I mean like 20, but that’s pretty significant considering I’m not exactly Tumblr famous.
Hi, guys! Not sure what exactly brought you here, but I hope you like it enough to stay!
You know when you read something and you have to stop every other page because you want to read it out loud to the person sitting next to you?
This is like that. Only you’re the person sitting next to us and we can’t read it out loud because this book doesn’t come out until January!
Grrr. C’est la vie.
Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest marks her triumphant return to her faerie roots, and will be out January 13, 2015. Until then here’s a taste:
Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.
Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.
At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.
Until one day, he does…
As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?
And this cover! Beautiful, right?
AAHHHHH NEW HOLLY BLACK BOOJK ASDKLAROA(I*FA(PASKFLAIHDFLASFLK
oh my god, do not brag about being a music snob
that is not something to be proud of
like sure, be really enthusiastic about your music all you want, that’s awesome, but when you cross the line into snobbery and start worshipping vinyl and shaming people for their musical tastes and getting all self-righteous about knowing the most obscure bands, that is no longer a good thing.
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
This pisses me off every time I see it. Fuck you, Florida.
So I made this Facebook post about how I should do a cosplay photoshoot sometime since I won’t be able to wear my Jareth costume to Norwescon. Carson commented that I should get our friend Dana to do the shoot - her niche is boudoir photography, but she can do a lot of other great stuff too. So then the dude jumps in with “I would say my friend over at X studio is superior. :)”
Dude. Do you really not get how rude that was? I got onto him about it and tried to de-awkwardize the situation in the comments, but gatdamn. He genuinely had no idea he was being rude and thought the smiley face would “soften the blow” instead of coming off as passive-aggressive.
