Earthworm Pavilion.

Nature Concert Hall is an interactive, educational multi-media event on nature and sustainable development held each year in a different location in Latvia. Every year is curated with a particular species as its “mascot” and Didzis Jaunzems Architecture was asked to base this year’s pavilion on the earthworm.

The architects responded with a structure designed to tell the story of the earthworm and its underground world. Three openings cut into the pavilion imitate worm-holes, while the sinuous patterning on the dark background reflects the creatures in their subterranean habitat.

“After the event there are absolutely no marks of the event that happened at the site day before – a completely empty and clean floodplain is left, contrary to the garbage-covered fields that are left after any other traditional festival,” added the architect.

The various elements of science, visual art, music, and dramaturgy included in the festival work holistically to tell the story of the earthworm in nature, ultimately aiming to not only give visitors new knowledge about nature, but to also motivate them to take action for environmental protection.

Seether – Saviours. This one goes out to all the evangelical asshole christians.

You think you know what this world is about
But nothing grows in the desert when you covet the drought
And you believe everything is alright
It’s plain to see you’re pretending now with all of your might

And I hope you wither out
Fuck you and your fake adoration

Hooray for the saviours who prey on the prayers
And drink of the well as they give fuel to the fire
Your selfish behaviour – a taste that you savour
You worship yourselves, you’re all just bigots and liars

You kick and scream when you’re being ignored
But no-one heeds aberration when the act is a chore
And I believe we have been here before
It’s plain to see you are everything I hated you for

And I hope you wither out
Fuck you – you’re a poor imitation

Hooray for the saviours who prey on the prayers
And drink of the well as they give fuel to the fire
Your selfish behaviour – a taste that you savour
You worship yourselves, you’re all just bigots and liars

I hope you wither out
Fuck you – you’re a poor imitation

Hooray for the saviours who prey on the prayers
And drink of the well as they give fuel to the fire
Your selfish behaviour – a taste that you savour
You worship yourselves, you’re all just bigots and liars

Hooray for the saviours who prey on the prayers
And drink of the well as they give fuel to the fire
Your selfish behaviour – a taste that you savour
You worship yourselves, you’re all just bigots and liars.

Trolling Trump.

Most people are at least marginally aware of the Tiny Tyrant’s recent claim that he turned down Time Magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’, which has been handily refuted by all the folks at Time Mag. There’s always a bit of room for trolling though, and for Pete Souza, the Obama administration photographer, it’s a fun pastime.

Someone has a lot of catching up to do.

Former President Obama’s White House photographer on Saturday taunted President Trump, sharing a series of 15 Time magazine covers featuring the Obamas.

Pete Souza shared the compilation of photos, which was originally posted by an account named @michelleandbarack,” on Instagram, with the caption: “Someone has a lot of catching up to do.”

Seether – Black Honey, Thrice cover. Thrice video here.

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees ‘cause I …
I want honey on my table
But I never get it right … no I never get it right
I keep swinging my hand through in swarm of bees
I can’t understand why they’re stinging me
But I’ll do what I want, I’ll do it what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need
I’ll rip and smash through the hornet’s nest
Don’t they understand I deserve the best
And I’ll do what I want, I’ll do it what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need
I tried to stick this pin through a butterfly ‘cause I …
I like all the pretty colors
But it just fell apart so I flung it in the fire to burn with all the others
And this time I’ll get it right … yeah this time I’ll get it right
It’s gonna be this time I’ll get it right …
Oh God let it be this time I get it right
So I’m cutting that branch off the cherry tree
I’m singing this will be my victory then I …
I see them coming after me
And they’re following me across the sea
And now they’re stinging my friends and my family and I…
I don’t know why this is happening
But I’ll do what I want, I’ll do it what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need
