Celtic tribes of Ireland and Britain (a very long time before it was called ‘Britain’).
I’m a mix of Dammonii, Epidii, Cauci, Menapii and Cruithin.
Definite Scotti/Gael, here XD

A Game of Thrones TV Series
This is an example of how a cool book will not necessarily translate into an equally cool TV series.
I do love the series, but a lot of aspects in the series fall short of the book.
The characters in the book are more poisonous, for example. Varys should be more simpering. Cersei a bit more evil (unlike that weak, saccharine version of her on TV). Jaime, Renly and Loras should be handsome-er. Tyrion should be uglier.
I thought Eddard Stark and Arya were just right, though. :P
But ah, I take what I can get. In the meantime, the people in my head when I’m reading the books will always be separate from the people I see on TV.
So here’s a question:
If you have read the book and watched the series, what is your opinion on this? Yay or nay to the series? Or yay to one and nay to the other?
Typewriter Series #14 by Tyler Knott Gregson
Because I am lost here without you.
Because no matter the joy I will feel
in being found,
it will not begin to compare with
the perfection you will experience
in doing the finding.
Because you could aimlessly throw
one million darts at dusty maps
on creaking walls,
but until you turn one around
and force it
through that tiny space
between your ribs
and into the source of all your
you will never understand
where I have always

Steampunk-ish World Map, Cartographilia #1
Setting up context:
- I’m a cartographilia: I love maps (and consequently cartography art).
- I’m a closet steampunk.
Alright, so it’s not really steampunk. In fact, this piece is titled Night of the Long Grass, which is nothing remotely steampunk. Though when you look at it, there are no sightings of Long Grass either, so maybe the artist had a night of long grass, if you catch my drift. :)
Look at the world with wanderlust. Look closer to each detail and you will discover more. Get lost in this piece by Diego Patino, exclusively designed for Americanflat.
Only 100 piece in production, and costs $250 from AmericanFlat. Proceeds directly support the artist.
If you love art, but feels nauseated by the idea that you’re associating yourself with snobbish wannabes, then take a look at AmericanFlat.
Americanflat caters to the art lover, not the art investor, offering an array of collections that conveniently fit your lifestyle. The Americanflat mission is simple: To produce museum-quality, exclusively curated wall art from impressive, hand-selected artists, while making that artwork accessible and affordable for everyone. We do this by partnering with artists who believe in our concept and by using a unique giclee production process that allows us to cut costs, without skimping on quality.
How it came about:
A few years ago, Americanflat Founder and President, Giorgio Piccoli, moved to New York City to begin work with JPMorgan. In an attempt to decorate the walls of his tiny apartment with artwork, he was led down a path of frustration and disappointment. “I would see a great piece of large art that I wanted to purchase and the gallerist would tell me that it was north of $5,000,” says Piccoli. “I would ask if there was anything closer to my price range and they would just laugh. Right then, I knew I wanted to create a brand that was not for the art investor but for the art lover.”
God bless this man!
