Namibia’s Hipsters: From the sapeurs of Kinshasa, the fashionistas of Lagos and to the streets of Jozi, vintage style is trending in Africa.   

Designer, tailor and stylist Lourens Loux Gebhardt of Loux the Vintage Guru is now collaborating with Khumbala, a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, to launch a street-style website that seeks to inspire Africans to step out in style and introduce them to the merits of vintage fashion.

A fashion revolution in the making; “When we collaborate we call ourselves LIA (Love is African), and we’re currently playing a big part by simply inspiring fashionistas around the African continent.”

Usually decked out in well-cut 60’s suits, tweed jackets, round spectacles and trilby hats, Lourens explains, “Many people aren’t interested in wearing vintage, they just see it as used clothing… I manage to dress myself cheaply and end up looking like a million bucks.”

I decided to try my hand at translating a song I adore from KLK. I did take artistic liberties but the English should be far less awkward than a lot of direct translations. ENJOY!

I want to be much stronger
Because our world is so malign
Isn’t it wise to remove the wilted flowers 

You ask me if I’ll come with you
You whisper into  my ear
You ask me to take your hand
I’ve got no reason to refuse you 

You ask me if I’ll come with you
You whisper into  my ear
You ask me to take your hand and
(Into my ear) 

Yes, I am far stronger than I thought I was
Flying higher
Running much faster
Remember the truth now
Yes, I am far stronger than I thought I was
I will pull these dead flowers
Why then do you look so sad now? 

This world is so cruel
Yes it’s sad but also true
This world is so strange
It’s debatable but true
Does this flower garden really exist 

I want to be much stronger
Because our world is so malign
Isn’t it wise to remove the wilted flowers 

What do you want now?
Whether I like it or not, 
I will hunt these enemies
I am not free from this world 

Even though you are strong
Flying higher, running much faster
You are so strong
You weave yourself a flower crown
Why then do you look so sad now?

Look how adorable it loo- wait… you’re arachnophobic… sorry. That sucks :c

arachnids and i have a very specific relationship. i like to appreciate them when i know they’re there before i enter a two foot radius of them. if they get within two feet of me without my consent, then i have the right to freak out. i feel like this is a very reasonable and healthy way to deal with them.

Anonymous;
fun fact: technically daddy long legs or pholcus phalangioides are only in the spider family. they are often classified as spiders, which is incorrect. they are, however, arachnids. c:

yes i recall that fun tidbit of information better when im not shuddering with the adrenaline that comes from seeing a creature with fangs the size of a thumbtack hanging out in my glassware

normally i am quite chill with daddy long legs, when i see them in the garden ill sometimes pick them up, but holy hell one of that size really shouldn’t be in a house oh my god oh gross oh god.

Reblogging this not only for artists but also for people who write werewolf (and other animal transformation) fiction.  If a human turned into a wolf, their knee joints would not reverse— what some fic writers mistake for the knee is actually the ankle.  A wolf’s hind feet are relatively long, and they are always walking in way roughly analogous to human “tip-toeing.”

For anyone curious, the artist is Marshall Vandruff and he has a free webinar up on Imaginarium as well as dvds from Gnomon Workshop!
