God save the Seamstress;
Gritty Von Kitty 9¾
I like cake.. & biscuits. Currently NOT studying in l'école supérieure de Beaux Arts, I'm a B.A. major in fashion design, merch & history. I play Roller Derby, live Roller Derby, I am happiest with skates on my feet. I'm a Jack of all trades and love anything crafty with a passion. I have at least 4 tattoos planned and no money to act with, being an arts student sees to my constant state of middle class poverty.
I suffer from BPD, my teenage years didn't leave me unmarked. 24 & still very much alive & very much in love with my Northern soul French man. This Tumblr doesn't have a sense so to speak, stick around if you like.

    (Whilst I’ve been on hold for 20 something minutes to a flight company and am going out of my mind with bordem and hold music).

    Praise for a Color

    Yellow infers from itself papayas and their pulp,
    penetrable yellow.
    At noon: bees, sweet stinger and honey.
    Whole eggs and their nucleus, the ovum.
    This interior thing, miniscule.
    From the blackness of the blind viscera,
    hot and yellow, the miniscule speck,
    the luminous grain.
    Yellow spreads and smooths, a downpour
    of the pure light of its name,
    tropicordial.
    Yellow turns on, turns up the heat,
    a charmed flute,
    an oboe in Bach.
    Yellow engenders.

  • "I saw a bit of utility in having initials on one item, having Swaine Adeney engrave my initials on the collar of my travel umbrella. Looking back I should have had them engrave ‘Stolen from Réginald-Jérôme de Mans’ instead."
    Réginald-Jérôme de Mans in a post about monograms and engravings, suggesting what I think might be the most useful engraving of all.  (via putthison)

    Scientists Develop a Darker Black

    Really dark black is apparently the new black. From The Independent:

    A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

    If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.

    Actual applications are more serious, enabling astronomical cameras, telescopes and infrared scanning systems to function more effectively. Then there are the military uses that the material’s maker, Surrey NanoSystems, is not allowed to discuss.

    You can read the rest here. The obvious question is: how much more black can this be? And the answer is — none. None more black.

    I want bed sheets made of this.
