And now, a break to look at adorable snow leopards.

I love how they can manage to look judgmental and disapproving all while having their tails in their mouths.
I’ve reblogged this before, but I don’t care you’re not my mom.
Om nom nom, tasty tails.
Tail noms! :’)
Sokushinbutsu (即身仏) were Buddhist monks or priests who caused their own deaths in a way that resulted in their mummification. This practice reportedly took place almost exclusively in northern Japan around Yamagata Prefecture. It is believed that many hundreds of monks tried, but only 24 such mummifications have been discovered to date.
Their diet was nuts and seeds for 1000 days, after that they only ate bark and roots while getting rid of body fat, After the 1000 days they drank a poisionous tea made from the sap of Urushi tree.
Finally, a self-mummifying monk would lock himself in a stone tomb barely larger than his body, where he would not move from the lotus position. His only connection to the outside world was an air tube and a bell. Each day he rang a bell to let those outside know that he was still alive.When the bell stopped ringing, the tube was removed and the tomb sealed. After the tomb was sealed, the other monks in the temple would wait another 1,000 days, and open the tomb to see if the mummification was successful.
If the monk was mummified he was instantly seen as Buddha and put on display. If the mummification wasnt successful then the monk wasn’t seen as one, yet still admired for his trying.

GUESS WHO HAS PAYPAL NOW! You can officially pay for my commissions in two different ways!
I need a lot of money for a lot of different things: moving, much-needed surgeries, car repairs, etc. so I’m turning to you guys for some cash! Depending on how busy I get, I expect your work to be completed between 1 - 3 days, so be sure to check my Commission Status page to see what my availability is before sending payment!
Now, onto the two ways you can pay!
- PayPal: Send all payments to email@example.com
- GoFundMe: This is for you, folks who do not have Paypal! Donate through the site by clicking the reward tier you want and send it as a PRIVATE DONATION. Just be sure to let me know what name you used when you donated in your commission details, so I know who you are! Private donation ensures that no one but me knows what name you used, and thus secures the transaction.
All that’s left then is to shoot me a message here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with all your commission details!
All examples of my artwork can be found on my art blog, shinyjiheddo!
There’s very little I won’t do regarding subject matter, but if you’re unsure about whether or not I’ll draw your commission, please send me a message inquiring! All conversations will be kept private, I promise.
In the event you want something NSFW, however, I will ask that you add $5 to the commission price. If there’s something here that isn’t listed, be it something smaller (like chibis) or something more detailed (like tattoo designs or full illustrations), I’ll happily work out a price with you~
Thank you so much, and I look forward to doing business with you!

do you ever hear the intro theme to a video game and you get really emotional and your heart feels really weak like it’s coming back home and it’s basically like that whole world you love so much summed up into one epic song and you just want to fucking cry a lot because this is the video game for you and nothing else ever can even compare to the feeling you get when you hear that one fucking bit of music
