ask me anything

l'esprit de l'escalier or esprit d'escalier (staircase wit) is thinking of a clever comeback when it is too late. the phrase can be used to describe a riposte to an insult or any witty remark that comes to mind too late to be useful—after one has left the scene of the encounter. the phenomenon is usually accompanied by a feeling of regret at not having thought of it when it was most needed or suitable.

Just a reminder:

When Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question.  The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her.

Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.

He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.

He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.

He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.

He averted his cousin’s impolite stare.

GOOD GUY ADOBE releases the ENTIRE CS2 SUITE. FOR FREE.

That means free access to Photoshop CS2 - and that already has most of what you could ask for, really.
All you have to do is create a FREE ADOBE ID.
I am not sure about commercial use, but MAN. FUCKIN’ SWEET DUDE




Reblogging for the greater good.




I’m unlikely to pick it up as I honestly never use PS anymore, but here everyone who follows me. Free stuff.




oh wow this is perfect i was just lamenting that i’d have to buy creative suite for my new laptop WELP




Signal boost for any of my followers who need art programs!
The cs2 programs date back only a few years, and still have much of the functionality of today’s more modern ones. The differences between most of the versions are little more than slight modifications or additions of minor features, and UI changes. Go for it guys!!
Also, in case the page is down, here are the download links + serials.

Here we go guys! An alternate route to download incase the page is down! :)

Marina Abramovic meets Ulay

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

Angel Coulby as Bilbo Bramble Baggins—burglar, Ring-bearer, poet, translator, Elf-friend and scholar. After an adventurous youth, she spent her twilight years in Rivendell, working on her memoir, There and Back Again, as well as the compendium of lore, Translations from the Elvish. She was granted the great privilege of traveling to the Grey Havens with the last of the Elven lords, and passed into the West in her 131st year.

(because nonsenstalare mentioned it and I am contractually obligated to make a gifset for every genderswap that catches my interest.)
