That looks like the “gods” are having a rave in the clouds

all hail the glow cloud

I really need a change of surroundings and situation, i feel like this place is toxic.

I swear the people you meet on tumblr are 67856478% better than the people you will ever meet in real life.


Cultivate a “high-performance mind” 
Cultivating a high-performance mind is a very fun, invigorating process that involves consciously accessing the brainwave state that you consciously choose, whenever you feel it is appropriate for a certain situation. Since there is no single best brainwave state to live life in, it helps to train our mind to consciously be able to “switch” states upon command - something very useful to a balanced mind, heart and spirit since it further aids a person’s conscious evolution.
For those who want to understand more about developing a high-performance mind, I recommend that you go check out the book The High Performance Mind by Anna Wise.
Peace & Blessings
Our Journey to Balance

Without deep conversation, my mind becomes restless. I need passion and intellect, it’s a shame that a person often lacks one or the other.

hate the fact that my ribs are always visible



“If all cosmos were the same distance apart, gravity would pull them all in the same direction. They’d remain perfectly aligned, and precisely nothing would happen. Irregularity, imperfection, and lack of order in hydrogen compacts, atoms of gas gravitating away from each other, and compressed temperatures is what created our universe. Perfection in our galaxy simply does not exist. Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.” —Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking: ‘The Story of Everything’ Utilize this as an analogy next time attempt to undermine your self-worth caused by fallacious and subjective standards one must meet in order to attain aesthetic appeal. Symmetric cannot be created if its source is asymmetric.

i love this so much

Temples are a really great band



Sun Beams Test
Higher quality versions: Ello | G+
Blender got a new “Sun Beams” composite node recently. You can expect that I’ll be abusing that a lot in the near future.
In other news, Imgur decided to try and “make internet better” by automatically converting all of my images hosted there into MP4 files which lose about 90% of the image quality that I work so hard to get into my animations. Worst of all - Most of the looping videos glitch and lose their illusion of being a perfect loop for what feels like 3 frames when they restart. Boooooo!
Examples of my original uploads:
Examples of total suck:
I tried directly uploading MP4s to imgur, so at least I’m not losing quality by restricting the number of colors in saving it to GIF and THEN imposing horrible MPG artifacts in there for a double lossy image - but that didn’t work. Imgur does not accept MP4 uploads.
So I just tried just putting MP4s of this latest design up on G+, but the encoded quality was terrible, and didn’t loop. So I just put the high quality GIF up there.
Then I remembered that hexeosis sent me an invite to this new “Ello” thing. I still have no idea what it’s about, or what the whole :bread: thing is, but other GIF makers are on there and adding me as a friend, so I’ll have to figure out what is going on over there. I hear there’s like a 25 meg GIF limit over there. So I put the high quality version there too.
Looks like I’m going to be uploading my high quality version images to G+ and Ello for the time being. More experimentation to come.

Sad to see so many people cheering for the death of .gif in every comment thread about this (and gfycat). This is great news for creators and consumers of lengthy tv/film/youtube-based gifs, but there’s more to the format than that. Hopefully these sites will continue to support “real gifs” for a bit longer before video loops inevitably become the default or only option. (take your time, staff)
my ruined examples, original gifs first: odd vignetting introduced gross
Worth mentioning imgur keeps any original gif below 20mb now, which is gr8.
