I am absolutely in love.

I grew up in a house surrounded by pine trees. you know, like a Calvin & Hobbes upbringing with a thicket and a creek. moving to New York, I knew that I’d have to give some of that up, but I think I was a little spoiled in my youth.
I wanted a tree on my arm (a spruce at first, but aspens are my favorite. we kinda settled on an imaginary hybrid. if you are considering a tattoo in NY, go to Goose). I just needed a little nature back in my daily life. a little oxygen. a little bit of a reminder that I’ll return to trees sooner or later.
oops I went on a rant
i love you?
I will never not laugh at this

Greetings, book friends! Some of you may have become acquainted with Corpus Libris over the last 5 years — when it started on a quiet night at Skylight Books in 2008, as it grew on Blogspot and Twitter, and as submissions came in from all over the world. It only seemed appropriate to breathe some new life into the project on Tumblr. You’ll revisit some photos you’ve seen before, you’ll see new ones, and hopefully, you’ll submit some yourselves!
All you have to do is click the red “Submit” button at the top of the page, select a photo, and for the caption, put the title of the book, the author(s), and where the photo was taken (either the bookstore/library/company, or the city). Or, if it’s easier for you, you can email corpuslibris AT gmail DOT com.
This project has been one of my biggest spots of joy over the last few years, and I’m excited to continue sharing it with all of you.
All the best,
CORPUS LIBRIS FOREVER!

I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.

I’ve reblogged this about five times already and I dont plan on stopping
we’re going to look back at events like this when we’re older and be so embarrassed it was even an issue.
This fantastic and moving tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman by Caleb Slain features over 40 of Hoffman’s films.
At 17:22 the video uses a clip from a 2010 interview with Ross Reynolds of NPR affiliate KUOW in which Hoffman says:
People need each other and that actual interaction or relationship or friendship or romantic love affair, all the different ways relationships take form—is one of the hardest things we do in our lives. It’s one of the biggest risks we’ll take in our lives… If you say ‘yes’ to someone, ‘I will,’ [you] are also saying, ‘I will be hurt by you.’ Because you can’t have relationships if you’re not willing to be disappointed and hurt by that person. It’s almost impossible. And you have to be able to enter the world and realize that the richness of life is all the good and joy and thrill of it, but also all the disappointment, hurt, and heartache of it—and that all of that is what’s great.
Hoffman spoke to Terry in 1999 and 2008. We play parts of both interviews in our tribute to him.
