I never had posters of famous men on my wall, I had pictures of ballerinas and women I wanted to be like. All my friends were in love with Johnny Depp, and I never got it until I met him, and realised he was the most fascinating man on the face of the planet. Sure he’s dashing, but he, and George Clooney, too, have that old-fashioned glamour of a man like Rudolph Valentino.

I got questioned all the time about my sexuality for the photos of women I posted onto my walls. Although I am with a woman now; I always liked to visually inspire myself to strive and grab the qualities that inspired me about these women and their character. I am still inspired by powerful women.

Tradition Meets Technology at the 2014 Eco Edo Nihonbashi Art Aquarium
The Eco Edo Nihonbashi Art Aquarium 2014 opened last Friday at the Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall in Tokyo, Japan. This exhibition features 17 fish tank installations designed by “art aquarist” Hidetomo Kimura, whose work brings more than 5,000 goldfish on display in 70 aquariums.
These extraordinary aquatic installations are decked with LED lights, projection mapping, music and even scents. While the technology involved is quite advanced, the aquarium designs are inspired by Japan’s Edo Period (1603–1868) and incorporate traditional motifs such as classic glass fish bowls, folding screens and lanterns.
Hidetomo’s works will be on view at the Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall until September 23, 2014.

I ASKED MY SISTER TO MAKE ME A DANNY DEVITO CAKE FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND SHE DID OH MY GOD
My first real laugh of the day. Thanks Tumblr.
"There seemed to be this almost supernatural glow to her that’s hard to describe. Literally there was an aura emanating from her, a white or blue aura. It’s as if Edie was illuminated from within. Her skin was translucent — Marilyn Monroe had that quality."
