Hi! I'm Anke,17, the Netherlands.
I love cats, languages, history and music. I also have a slight crush on Jens Lekman.

Do you happen to know anything about the Mir Sada/We Share One Peace march to Sarajevo in august 1993, please leave a message! I'm currently writing my 'high school thesis' (profielwerkstuk) about this. Thank you!

'I ask' in swedish = jag frågar

'I answer' in irish = freagair mé

my hobbies include finding  irish & swedish language
 similarities that i’ll probably never find any info about.

in Dutch it’s ‘wanneer’, so maybe some languages dropped the ‘w-n’ part and some the ‘n-r’ part??

The Four Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter; 1896, Alphonse Maria Mucha

This was Mucha’s first set of decorative panels and it became one of his most popular series. It was so popular that Mucha was asked by Champenois to produce at least two more sets based on the same theme in 1897 and 1900. Designs for a further two sets also exist.

The idea of personifying the seasons was nothing new - examples could be found in the works of the Old Masters’ as well as in Champenois’s other publications. However, Mucha’s nymph-like women set against the seasonal views of the countryside breathed new life into the classic theme. In the four panels shown here, Mucha captures the moods of the seasons - innocent Spring, sultry Summer, fruitful Autumn and frosty Winter, and together they represent the harmonious cycle of Nature.

∝  A mix inspired by “1984”  a novel by George Orwell 

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”

“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”

Matt Berninger from The National saying “uuuh” for 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

This is for insertsonglyrichere

Ok. I didn’t used every interview Matt has ever done because the audio compilation would last hours (and it takes a long time to do). I included some “and”s and “but”s though. Matt, if you ever see this, I am deeply sorry. Take it like a homage.

(After a while, I started recognizing Matt’s “uuuuh”s just by the shape of the sound wave. I think I might have broken my brain forever.)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THANK YOU

Object “Förlåt” 110 cm x 720 cm neon and zink
The New Coastway Halmstad 
Förlåt is the swedish word for sorry or forgive. The sculpture is powered by its own wind craft and is therefor lit by night. Personally I experience it every time I drive by it. (“Förlåt” was built in order to be seen from the road nearby.) Driving home in the dark, and suddenly seeing a bright light telling you “Sorry”, for me, its quite special.

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
