UNIVERSAL TODDLERS
What are we doing to our very existence, ourselves, society, to all the other species that exist around us? Tell me. Tell me do. Look around. ALL AROUND! What have we done? Has the world benefited from man’s progress? Heck, has mankind benefited from man’s progress? Nope. We are just as primitive as we were many centuries ago. The only difference being we have learned to disguise our faults…

As is his character, the professor is lecturing us about additional information :) at least none of this will be on the final exam, but it's still about constitutional law and also aboriginal law is a class that he teaches himself and he probably wants us to sign up for it (currently just optional but he thinks it will soon be mandatory).

Better With a Person
Better With a Person
I was walking around Granville Island when this beautiful art piece caught my eye. I stopped and shot a photo with this exact composition. Immediately after I shot the photo I thought to myself, “this picture would be a lot better if there was a person walking down the walkway”. So I stood there in that exact spot and waited for someone. A few people came by and I shot a few photos, but I wasn’t…

Mimi Spirits 
Fairy-like beings of some of the Indigenous Australians tribes. They are described as having, extremely thin and elongated bodies, so thin as to be in danger of breaking in case of a high wind. To avoid this, they usually spend most of, their time living in rock crevices. They are said to have taught the Aborigines of Australia how to hunt, prepare kangaroo meat, use fire and dance. They are like humans but they live in a different dimension.

Olympus mju-1 Film Camera Review
Olympus mju-1 Film Camera Review
I recently got my hands and a Olympus mju-1 35mm film camera. I ran a roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 through it and did a review of the camera. I got a sunset and did a little street photography in my neighbourhood in Kelowna BC, Canada. Even if your not into film photography, I think this video is a good watch. Check it out! Thanks for watching, Rob

If you still celebrate January 26th as “Australia Day”, you either don’t want to or won’t believe that it marks the beginning of the genocide of Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders that has continued to this day.
But hear it from Aboriginal voices (who have been protesting for a long time), attend rallies, contribute funds where you can, and check out some petitions re: aboriginal deaths in custody, climate justice for Torres Strait islanders and treaty recognition.

Looking at Buildings
I went for a little walk the other day to see if I could catch a sunset. Sadly the sunset didn’t really materialize. It was still nice to get out for a walk and shot a bunch a photos, but nothing I was too excited about. This was the last picture I took. I was walking back to my car and I saw this bench. The idea to put the camera down and hop in the shot crossed my mind so I did it. The photo…

well if nothing else my dislike of the devs' decisions has encouraged me to compile all the extended universe/blatantly non-canon lore I've come up with and turn it into my own Thing, with bonus elements from other franchises I'm fed up with
in the immortal words of renown philosopher adam savage: I reject your reality and substitute my own
#they're not headcanons if you control the canon :)#look out for spicy little dragon age and elder scrolls nuggets as i fill this out#because really. isn't all modern fantasy based on the same elements?#is not game of thrones a response to lord of the rings? which in itself is a response to germanic folklore? which is a localized version#of norse mythology?#there's nothing new under the sun m'dudes.#so I'll add another regurgitated bastardization of the same concepts. why not.#worldbuilding is fun.#when you've never had an original thought it your life#👉😎👉#i mean i do have the idea of basing it on a world in which the mongols didn't ruin the islamic golden age#but I'm sure that's been done before#also gonna give the australian aboriginal tribes their due as the first. like. explorers? the oldest distinct population outside africa?#there's an island in my world that went the wakanda route and said hey cool you guys can all kill each other we'll be here being amazing#and they're based on an as-yet-unchosen aboriginal culture#also part 2: crete but with not-greeks and not-turks. and pseudo-india. and the biggest rivalry is... wait for it......#kinda based on a wwi thing! the frenemy conflict between a brash new empire and a dying old one!#but the new one is mostly rural and already sucks at money and the old one went the way of the byzantines#and is now a fraction of its former size. and the royal family is pissed about it.#if you saw my extended arcana world map i basically smashed that into a new southeastern bit#i have Ideas y'all. whether I'll continue to build on them is a crapshoot but stranger things have happened#rey says words#as-yet untitled worldbuilding project

Hi my name is Eli and my favorite hobby is overanalyzing meaningless fiction
#posted an essay a while back on colonialist themes in skyrim lol#and now that ive started playing again ive also been thinking about nord nationalism / racial supremacy#is it meant as a metaphor for nationalism and racial supremacy in america? a subtle critique of it?#or is it just a clueless port of those very ideals with no self awareness on the part of the people who included it#OR maybe it was added with neutral intentions. just to enhance the realism of the game by including an unsavory aspect from real life?#pretty sure its either the second or the third option#because the text in the game doesnt inherently lead the player to think that the nords attitude is wrong#so either they didnt realize it was a bad thing when they included it. or theyre trying to let you make your own opinions on it like irl#also think about warrior cats sometimes#specifically when the clans visit with the tribe of rushing water#and jayfeather has to teach them how to clean their own wounds bc#apparently this tribe of cats who has been surviving for longer than the clans even existed#never learned how to clean their own wounds?? even though thats a natural instinct for cats??#like one of them gets hurt and they just start putting the poultice on top of the dried blood#and jayfeather is like you dumbasses you have to clean the wound first let me show you how#and theyre all shocked that they can do that??#thats some bullshit @ erin hunter#was that supposed to be some gross metaphor about white people teaching aboriginal people to be 'civilized'?#bc 1) it doesnt even make sense and 2) fuck you#you CANNOT tell me that in the long long time that the tribe has been surviving on their own none of them ever cleaned their wounds#when that is a natural instinct that all cats have#ugh#rambling
