Hold Fast Hope

Everything was problematic and nothing hurt.

Sometimes I am the Pope.

Only in describing other things do we truly reveal ourselves.

Welcome to Derinkuyu, an underground city that once housed up to 20,000 people. In the Cappadocia region, famous for its cave dwellings and underground villages, Derinkuyu stands out for sheer size and complexity. Locals began digging in the 500s BCE. The city consists of over 600 doors, each of which can be closed from the inside. Each floor could be closed off as well. And just to make attacking completely impossible, the entire city was deliberately built without any logic. Its maze-like layout makes navigating the city nightmarish for unfamiliar invaders.

So we got these leaflets for the South East of England to vote Conservative in the upcoming election. I decided to make them into something a lot more useful.

"Build a stronger David Cameron out of metal"

this is still one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen

oh man im reading this magazine article by someone whose last name is “friend”?? wow what a great and also mildly creepy last name! i can imagine, like, a cult making its members adopt the surname Friend—- “we’re a family, here…and we’re all Friends, donna! don’t be afraid~”

My great-great-grandmother was a Friend. Then she married a Kind. 

Their first names? Cecil and Ethel. Brilliant.
