That awkward moment when you misread your schedule and miss a seminar that your boss wanted you to attend because you thought you had a meeting with your boss, but it turns out that your meeting with your boss was after the seminar and your boss it at the seminar and you are not.
Kasane (累 ──かさね──) by Matsuura Daruma • drama • psychological • seinen • supernatural • tragedy •
Beautiful people are loved and revered. They have everything they desire right at their fingertips… even if that beauty is a complete illusion.
Kasane is ugly. Not glasses-and-freckles ugly but truly, horrifically ugly – and the manga-ka holds no punches in drawing her as a horrifying monster. The irony is, she is the daughter of a beautiful, renowned actress. When her mother passes away, Kasane is left with a magical (or cursed?) lipstick that lets her temporarily steal the face of someone else by kissing them. Paired with the face and identity of a beautiful person, Kasane’s incredible acting talent is finally unleashed… but to what end? (source)
“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
hating your job and hating your employers are two different things
