High in a treeless valley in China's remote Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture lies the the largest Tibetan Buddhist school in the world. Founded in 1980, the Seda Larung Wuming Tibetan Buddhist Institute consists of a few main buildings and a tens of thousands of small dormitories built on the surrounding hillsides. At any given time, the Institute houses up to 40,000 monks and nuns who come from different schools of Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma, Gelug, Sakya and Kagyu. Students usually take six years to complete the formal training. Higher levels of training can take 13 years.

the usps must have been legally required to change their name because all i ever get from them is annoyed while receiving very little service. im waiting on a package which i was pleased to see had a fed ex tracking number but once it got to nyc they offloaded it to usps. i have only one time actually had a package delivered from them without having to go retrieve it from the post office. but now with my last two packages they arent even leaving me a slip in my mailbox so i can get it without an expected hassle. last time at least i had a usps tracking number and i scheduled a delivery which to my surprise they made but this one has only a fed ex tracking number so it doesnt work in the usps system. and me without decent id (i know, fuck off) makes it one degree more difficult. fuck you, post office for failing at the most basic level of competence.

just randomly exclaimed "priceline... negotiator!" for successfully aiming a stream of raid through the pans hanging on my wall killing a roach. lets just say the roach had it coming to him. i may need to lay down after all this excitement. (imagine im one of those people who would photoshop a can of raid into this photo, and sure, why not, a roach or two. its not like you imagining literally increases the amount of work i have to do.)


whos up for every episode of mad men? starts tomorrow night and ends leading into the series finale on sunday at ten. screen rant has some suggested eps to re-view.

Realism Materialism Art (RMA) introduces a diverse selection of new realist and materialist philosophies and examines their ramifications in the arts. Encompassing neo-materialist theories, object-oriented ontologies, and neo-rationalist philosophies, RMA serves as a primer on “speculative realism,” considering its conceptual innovations as spurs to artistic thinking and practice and beyond. Despite their differences, these philosophical positions propose that thought can and does think outside itself, and that reality can be known without its being shaped by and for human comprehension. Today’s realisms and materialisms explicitly challenge many of the dominant assumptions of cultural practice and theoretical inquiry, opening up new domains of research and artistic inquiry.
