Singer-songwriter Erutan.Erutan plays a range of multiple instruments, including the harp, violin, lute, kantele, plethora, hand drum, and many others. Her compositions and arrangements are Celtic/Medieval inspired. Also a self-proclaimed gamer, when she isn't composing her own music, she has a great passion in arranging music and vocal covers for videogame music.
I have followed Erutan, previously known as katethegreat19, for about seven years now. Her voice is soothing and hauntingly beautiful. She never ceases to amaze me.
Some of my favorites from her are: “You’re Not Alone”, “Aerith’s Theme”, “Once Upon a December”, “Come Little Children”, “Nomitori no Uta”, “Itsumo Nando Demo”, “The Willow Maid”, …

Alexander McQueen. “I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.”
This is like my favorite living room came to life and haunted me in the middle of the night. So upset to be missing the McQueen exhibit at the Met.
A massive research project, 15 years in the making, has revealed that beneath Dublin’s modern streets lies a trove of buried Viking warriors and artifacts.
Archaeologists say the number of Viking warrior burials in Dublin is astounding. A project cataloguing these burials was began in 1999. Now nearing its conclusion, the project will result in the publication of an 800-page tome titled ‘Viking Graves and Grave Goods in Ireland.’
“As a result of our new research, Kilmainham-Islandbridge is now demonstrably the largest burial complex of its type in western Europe, Scandinavia excluded,” says Stephen Harrison, who co-wrote the catalogue with Raghnall Ó Floinn, the director of the National Museum of Ireland. Read more.

Shen Shaomin’s Beautiful And Terrifying Bone SculpturesBones automatically insinuate death, and often are the only physical remnant that insinuates life once existed. Shen Shaomin‘s bone works are equal parts terrifying and fascinating, man-made memorials to human intervention on the planet. Creatures that never have been or should be are pieced together from human and animal skeletons. The bones are carved and relief-carved with text taken from several sources, including the Bible, the Koran, and various sources. Inscribed in English, Arabic, and Chinese, the texts serve as warnings to the two largest industrial nations in the world of the damage being caused to the planet.via Emmanuel Chaussade
The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
This is the best thing ever.
I fucking love this website.
Ah, this style is unmistakably Himmapaan’s. Here’s the link to this particular artwork, and here’s the link to Himmapaan’s DA gallery. There’s a ton of other saurian artwork that’s worth checking out as well. :)
