Floating World Pictures

Ask me anything   "... Living only for the moment, turning our full attention to the pleasures of the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms and the maple leaves; singing songs, drinking wine, diverting ourselves in just floating, floating; ... refusing to be disheartened, like a gourd floating along with the river current: this is what we call the floating world..." Asai Ryoi, c. 1661

Anonymous asked: every time i talk about famous groups of poets/writers/artists (which is often - i'm in a lit grad program), i secretly imagine they were also the pantheon in their time. are there any other paragons of cultural legacy you're willing to name drop as gods?


Answer:

kierongillen:

Heh. Bar the ones I had in issue 3?

Probably best wait and see, really. I do want to do the Renaissance gods at some point.

oh-glasgow:

If you can’t decide in the independence referendum because you don’t know which side is lying to you, simple logic can help you out. Here’s the reasoning:

First, assume that both sides are lying; you know that both can’t be telling the truth, but it is possible that both are lying about what…

Signal boosting this for any of my Scottish followers who are on the fence.

do you think that clint’s way taller than kate and when they get in arguments kate will stand on top of furniture to make herself taller than him so clint will do the same until they’re both standing on furniture and yelling like 12 year olds

Marie Ruffalo is not only my kind and loving Mom, she is also a talented artist. She has been inspired by every aspect of her unusual life, the ups and downs, joys, tears, and fears. She has been doing her art since I was a boy, mostly for her own satisfaction and peace of mind. After much nudging by me and by my step Father, Jerry, she is finally willing to show it to the public. It’s a very difficult thing to do and I commend her for it. Take a look. https://www.marieroseruffalo.com/
