Tumblr has become little more than a perpetual distraction machine to me. I’ve remained largely because of a select group of individuals with whom I interacted, but those connections for the most part are now maintained elsewhere. Whereas I once got a lot of fulfilment out of tumblr and discovered all kinds of new and wonderful things through tumblr, now I just find myself scrolling idly through the same fantasy film gifsets, butthurt tangents of all political inclinations, cute animals and seminude alt models. I’ve wasted too much time on here and I need to focus on more important things.
I think deactivating my blog would be a bit dramatic but I don’t plan on maintaining this blog any longer. Maybe something will pop up now and then (or maybe I’ll need an excuse to procrastinate and start posting again in a week). However, should my plan to cease posting succeed, anyone who is interested in maintaining contact with me elsewhere is encouraged to do so. Send me a message or whatever.

As a Canadian, I like to laugh at the ridiculousness of Canadian stereotypes. Then shit like this happens.
I feel like there are two ways this could go. Either he found the baby moose and thought “oh fuck bud, this fuckin’ baby moose might be hungry, let’s get him a fuckin’ crueller eh?”
Or he was a more urban, self-aware type and thought “holy fuck this fucking baby moose is awesome. How Canadian am I for adopting him? HOLY SHIT I SHOULD TAKE HIM TO TIM HORTONS LOL”
Both of these possibilities are compatible with my sense of national identity.

I think subconsciously I’ve known this for years, but this gif made me realize that Fezzik has always been one of my biggest role models. He looks like my dad, has sideburns like I did in college, is very polite, and solves all his problems with kindness, yelling, and/or smashing things to pieces.
Blacksmith Ric Furrer in his workshop holding his crucible steel Ulfberht blade. It has almost been a 1000 years since a metallugically accurate Ulfberht has been made. Ric heated the blade in a traditional brick forge. Ulfberht were the best Viking swords ever crafted, the blades had very little slag and were meant to bend while in use. Only 171 real Ulfberht swords have ever been recovered.
