no but the best part is how he got the name:
his name was originally “potatoes,” and his owner, willoughby bertie, told the stable lad who helped him to write the horse’s name on a feed bin. the boy misheard it as, literally “pot-eight-o’s” and wrote it with 8 o’s. bertie found it so funny that he kept that as the horses name.
This is the most beautiful horse-related story I’ve ever heard.
this is amazing
I found this statue in St. Pancras that looks EXACTLY LIKE Scott Shelby from Heavy Rain!! O___O

So last week, someone at the Famima in Santa Monica recognized me from tumblr even though I haven’t updated in so long! I’m feeling kind of inspired to post a little more often…!
"all artwork by H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha comes from the same source. Each is an original creation unprecedented in history"
There’s a “treasure room” in this museum… It has cartoonishly large customey padlocks on weirdly placed bars on the door..
"displayed in this room are true treasures, mysterious and enthrallingly beautiful. Throughout human history, no sculptor has managed to sculpt fog…. Unbelievably, this reverie is no longer in the realm of dreams… The one and only such object is housed in this very treasury. The room also holds the first sculpture in the world that defies replication, ‘The Mystery of Lovely Colors "
So I’m in the International Art Museum of America and the descriptions of the pieces are pretty great
Fragrant Loofah in a Purple Bamboo Forest :
"on the darkest of nights, the sudden inspiration for this painting flashed into the artist’s consciousness, giving birth to the artistic charm and allure embodied in this work. The rhythm of color galloped across the canvas as soon as the flying brush strokes were completed… The painting appears to be simple… Although the colors are simple, they reveal a boundless artistic spirit. How could the elegance of such fragrant loofah in a purple - bamboo first not live forever? "

Industry Guest Panel for The Garden of Words
Makoto Shinkai will be at Anime Expo 2013! He’s one of my favorite anime filmmakers, whose last two features 5CM Per Second and The Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below are phenomenally gorgeous.
I have no interest in seeing the English dub, but I plan on attending his panel and if possible would love to ask him questions about his filmmaking process.
I’m super excited. Other great guests this year at AX include Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy, Mind Game, Kick-Heart), RAM Rider, and Mega64!
I don’t know how to feel about this submission from Anthony…I did laugh, and also I miss you, haha! >3<
