I Can’t Decide If This Is Morbid Or Beautiful. Look At The Photos And Judge For Yourself.

Russian photographer Maris Ionona-Gribina has a gift. But whether that’s good or bad, you’ll be the judge. The way she memorializes the dead is intriguing to say the least. You’re about to see why.

“I found these dead animals during bicycle rides to the sea in the summer. I wanted to find a way to save them for world of art. They were so unprotected… One or two days more and they would be eaten by worms.”

“I remembered my childhood. When I with my brother found a dead mole, bird or bug we buried them on the border of a forest.”

“And we decorated the grave with flowers and stones. Why we did it that way? Probably it was a children’s curiosity, our first studies of mortality.”

“In this project I work with my childhood memories and with the subject of life and death.”

“All animals died naturally or after accidents with cars. The flowers were gathered near dead animals and in my garden.”

What’s the verdict? In the end, we’ll take this as a beautiful attempt to give peace and beauty to these fallen animals. And we can only hope to have such dedication from those around us when our time comes. If you want to see more of Maria’s work, check out her website and see what else she has up her sleeve.

Don’t Go Trick-or-Treating at These Houses. In Fact, Don’t Even Walk By Them.

Let’s talk about Halloween Hesitation. You know the feeling: you’re out trick-or-treating and you come to a house whose porch is dark. You’re not sure if they’re participating in the free-candy fest. There’s no decorations, no bright lights, and no bowl of candy on the porch.

Best case scenario: they just don’t like to decorate, but if you knock, you will receive a bounty of delicious candy. Worst case scenario: they hate Halloween and having fun.

Guess which camp these people are a part of.

1.) Good enough for me.

2.) The use of colors really communicates the message.

3.) Run, don’t walk, away.

4.) Not worth the risk.

5.) Unnecessary, but I applaud the craftsmanship involved in installing a trap door.

6.) Jeeze, I like my face the way it is. Kinda.

7.) Time to move to another town.

8.) Live wires are always a great way to ward off unwanted solicitors.

9.) That narrows it down quite a bit.

10.) This homeowner’s just trying to be real. Gotta respect that. Also, I doubt anyone would be mad answering the door if it was a girl scout cookie delivery.

You’d think, you’d hope, that senators would want to know what’s in that $1.012 trillion omnibus spending bill they’re considering, but it seems their staffers can’t even be bothered with that. Amanda Carpenter, senior communications adviser for Sen. Cruz, has gotten wind of what the staffers are up to, and it should seriously piss you off:!/amandacarpenter/status/423552651817938944!/amandacarpenter/status/423552962263519232
