My literal interpretation of Carl Sagan’s “we are star stuff” quote, the latter part of which inspires me every day: “We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”

The folds were drawn by Brian George and the tattoo done by Jared Bent at Rose Gold in San Francisco, from a photograph of Arp 273 group of galaxies. We wrote a whole blog post about it here: http://madartlab.com/2013/06/26/illustrated-anatomy-third-edition/

Why cello there

This has 130 notes.
Y’all need to chill this wasn’t that funny

This is the post that put me over 500 followers. I hate everything

This is it. This is fuckin it. This is the legacy I leave on this god-forsaken website. This is what future generations will remember me for, after all is said and done and the world dies down, this is what will be recorded in the annals of history as the one thing I achieved in my entire existence, and its the stupidest goddamn thing I could have possibly done. With three words I immortalized myself as the cello guys, not knowing what I wrought, and here we now stand.

165,000 notes is way too many. 10,000 followers is way too many. Everything is way too many. This wasn’t that funny, but here we are. Here we are, sad and tired and full of regret, at the cusp of the world, and here I will rot with what could have been.

Know that I mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that I loathe each and every one of you bastards for doing this.
