Finally, A Decent Bob Ross Happy Little Blanket

1 Share
bob-ross-happy-blanket-1.jpg This is the $30 Bob Ross Happy Little Blanket available from ThinkGeek (which, despite several readers' firm beliefs, I receive no kickbacks, monetary or otherwise, for posting). The 60-inch x 45-inch polyester blanket features an imagine of Bob Ross working his brush magic, complete with snowy mountain, lake and happy little trees. You know, I never realized just how much Bob Ross looks like a werewolf. Maybe he WAS a werewolf. Now that I think about it, I bet he was. That might explain his one-ness with nature. Or why nobody ever listens to me when I talk. Keep going for a shot of the whole blanket.

Scotland’s Mysterious Garden of Cosmic Speculation

The Garden of Cosmic Speculation in Dumfries, Scotland.(Image: Flexdream. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Scotland)

Some gardens are functional while others are merely decorative, but Charles Jencks’s Garden of Cosmic Speculation is a green-space on a whole different level. Private for all but one day a year, the 30-acre garden lies just a few miles north of Dumfries on the grounds of Portrack House, in the western part of the Southern Uplands.

Pay it a visit on that day, and you’ll uncover an incredible study in cosmology, the universe, and all the things that we know, deep down, are much, much bigger than us.

Jencks, an American architectural theorist, landscape architect and designer, started building the garden in 1989, and incorporated concepts from biology and maths to philosophy and cosmology.

A central feature of the Garden of Cosmic Speculation is the Universe Cascade, a series of steps that take visitors on a figurative journey through the billions of years since the universe’s creation.

Elsewhere, a red spiral bridge links Heaven and Hell, while another area is reminiscent of mankind’s six senses (including intuition). But the garden also symbolises a higher calling in its practical purpose.

On that one day of the year that it’s open, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation helps to raise funds for the Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres, which Charles Jencks co-founded.

Named after Jencks’ wife Maggie, who lost her fight against cancer in 1995, the centres provide support for those battling the illness, and Maggie’s legacy lives on in the important work that the care centre’s do across the United Kingdom and Hong Kong.

Honest Retro TV Themes! w/ Michael Bolton & Friends

1 Share
From: screenjunkies
Duration: 05:14

If you're an Emmy voter do us a solid and vote for Honest Trailers for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series. 😀 Thanks to Michael Bolton, Brian McKnight, Paula Cole, and Natasha Bedingfield for helping to make this video extra epic.

SONG LYRICS:

1) Stranger Things

Something strange is happening here in Hawkinstown
everything is turning upside down
Our Will may be gone
But our friendship’s still strong
So turn this town up to Eleven
And ride all night long
Stranger Things
Are keeping our lights shining
Stranger Things
These moments are defining
No matter how hard
we push and crawl...
Stranger Things are inside us all

2) This Is Us

Our lives cross in many ways
And sometimes they’re sad
Like losing a triplet
Or your adopted dad
what if your Mom lied to you your entire life
That’s a lot of strife
This is us!
We’re not cuttin’ onions in here
This is us!
You’ll be crying buckets of tears
This is us!
Just accept that the end is near
And someday we’ll all die
Shanananaaaaaa

3) Handmaid’s Tale

Waking up in my small bed
Putting on my white n’ reds
Life is good if you’re a male
It’s just another handmaid’s tale
I don’t want to wait
For the men to take over
I have worth not just to give birth
I don’t want to wait
For the guys to takeover
Let the Eyes all see
As we smash the patriarchy

4) Game of Thrones

Our love burned like wildfire
Until you blew it out
Now my watch is ended
The kingdoms are in doubt
Winter is coming
There’s a wall around my heart
I’m a wolf in dragon’s clothing
And it’s tearing me apart
I see it in the flames
Get ready for my reign
Our love is not a game
Of thrones
Shame shame shame shame
Shame on the game of thrones
