after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.

but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.

thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

Attention pre-T trans men who want to deepen their voices!

(credit goes to Alex who actually taught me this.)

This is great! Thanks for making this video because a lot of pre-T guys need help with this, come to me, and I don’t know exactly what to tell them. The tumblr video system is shit, so for people who can’t watch this, talk from your chest, not from your mouth or throat. Put your hand on your chest, and you will feel it vibrate when you talk. Record how you sound, practice, and perfect it. Like this guy, you may hear a dramatic change. I actually do this sometimes too, just for the fun of it. When I wake up my voice is lower anyway, but then I talk from my chest and it’s crazy low.

edit - someone just reblogged this off me and suggested drinking milk before you go to sleep because it will make your voice sound deeper in the morning.

Oh my gosh oh my gosh this is fantastic, I am going to practice this!

I’m so happy people are enjoying this!!!! ;U;

this is also great for anyone in general who wants to make their voice either higher or lower

This is incredible

I was trimming grass next to the side of the house and I found the tiniest snake I have ever seen.

WHY ARE YOU HOLDING A SNAKE DONT THEY LIKE KILL U?

DO YOU HONESTLY THINK A SNAKE THIS BIG COULD KILL A PERSON. THE ONLY THING IT COULD DO IS DISARM WITH CUTENESS

The Wind Portal: Installation of 5,000 Paper Windmills by Najla El Zein

Designer Najla El Zein just released these new photos of The Wind Portal, a beautiful installation that’s currently showing at the London Design Festival 2013. Made up of 5,000 paper windmills that spin to an integrated wind system, the installation has an architectural shape that creates a trompe l’oeil effect. Depending on where you stand, the gate appears to be closed. As you approach it, however, the gate seems as if it magically opens up for you.

The hand-folded paper windmills are accompanied by a complex wind and light system that’s computerized. As the artist states, “Different flows of wind are programmed resulting into different speeds, sounds and feelings. The light, which seems to play with the wind flow, gives us an impression of a breathing piece. Indeed, the gate breathes in and out, where wind is its main source of life.”

30-Day Cheesy Tropes Challenge [11/30]

feltelures:

Title: 30-Day Cheesy Tropes Challenge - 11. Meet in a Dream
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Genre: Gen
Rating & Warnings: G
Words: 942
Disclaimer: I don’t own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: When a telepathic virus strikes DS9 in Julian’s first week on the station, he couldn’t be more excited—specially when he begins receiving the speech of one of the station’s most notorious residents.
Author’s Notes: This is another one I had to rewrite because I was dissatisfied with the way I had initially handled the trope. (Tbh it’s another trope that, uh, pretty much does nothing for me.) The second attempt preceded to turn into one of my favourite fics of the challenge. Season 1 Julian, you are an adorkable mess.
