This, That & All The Other

Welcome to my mind palace

On Apologies and Forgiveness


I’ve been on Tumblr for 387 days. I’ve made 824 posts. I currently have 61,348 followers.

During my time on this platform I’ve posted many things that were silly, many that were heartfelt and a number of things (either posted here or posted on Twitter and referenced here by others) that were…

It’s easy to brush things off, and super hard to admit when you’re wrong. Thank you Mr. Jones for showing that although the latter may be harder, it shows greater character.

I love this frame. It looks like he’s got his Greek bed head hair. :) (x)

You can always spot which Tumblr users migrated over here from LiveJournal because we consistently call the Read More button ‘the cut’.

These two. What a pair.


Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani 's “Street Stone” Gives Louvre's Classical Sculpture Some Hip Threads

Artist on Tumblr, Behance, Facebook

"As if they didn’t already have the perfect physique… now the Louvre’s classical sculptures have flawless style as well. French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital mastermind Alexis Persani to give these ancient sculptures a sartorial update with their “Street Stone Series.”

Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series. Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated. Then again, since the now-monochrome statues were originally brightly painted, maybe the images aren’t that far off base after all.

What do you think? Do you prefer your Louvre sculptures classical or trendy?

I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented—or not represented at all—in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people—their love, their desires, their passions. I think that’s really cool—and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written. I get it—it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!


Orlando Jones, you sweet prince.

Oh Ben if only you had made a comment like this!

this is not the typical response you get from Actors regarding fan fiction. Orlando is definitely a step above. Then again, he is on tumblr, so…
