"Apparently orgasm is the only point where your mind becomes completely empty, you think of nothing for that second. That’s why it’s so compelling, it’s a tiny taste of death. Your mind is void, you have nothing in your head save white light."

Jeff Buckley (via desinercia)

That is why the french term for orgasm is “la petite mort" which translates as "the little death."

Don’t ask me how I know that.

(via dancingheartwiththeponies)

Yup. Had a few little deaths last night and thinking back, it’s true. You literally think of NOTHING.

This is Eugen Sandow (1867 - 1925), the “father of modern bodybuilding.” He toured America where people were more interested in watching his bulging muscles than him lifting weights. He visited museums and measured the muscles of ancient Greek statues, then built his body to their exact proportions. He wrote a magazine on physical culture that first used the term bodybuilding. Sandow was even named “special instructor in physical culture” to King George V!

"'I have endured what no one on earth has ever done before / I put to my lips the hands of the man who killed my son.'
Those lines, at least in Greek, represent the great Iliadic experience. Hermes, who escorts Priam to Achilles’s tent to ransom Hector’s body, never told the old king that he had to kiss Achilles’s hands—it’s simply Priam’s impulse. But by doing so, he brings both men to tears, tears for their own losses, and from their tears flows a reconciliation, however brief, between the bereft king and the killer of his sons. It’s a moving, tragic moment, and I dwelt on it, long and hard."

Robert Fagles on translating from the Greek (via iphigenias)

For Atlantis, Disney needed a new language for the Atlantean people. To do this, Disney hired Mark Okrand, the man who also created the famous Klingon and Vulcan for the Star Trek series. In the Atlantean language, Mark Okrand’s main source for it’s roots and stems of its words are Proto-Indo-European,but as Okrand also described it as being the “tower of babel” or “root dialect” for all languages in the world, he also used ancient Chinese, Latin, Greek, Biblical Hebrew, along with many other ancient languages or their reconstructions. As such, you can actually learn to write and speak the language!

This film is so underrated it hurts.

ah this explains how they understood french and english so well almost instantly… better than the magical wind in Pocahontas that’s for sure
