The Calligraph

There is one thing i can do forever, it's - calligraphy

You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics.

Guan Dongtian - Mediation of the Past at Red Cliff, to the Tune of Nian Nu Jiao (in Rhyme of Peking Opera)

Written by 苏轼(宋)Su Shi (Song Dynasty)

大江东去,浪淘尽,千古风流人物。

故垒西边,人道是,三国周郎赤壁。

乱石崩雲,惊涛駭案,卷起千堆雪。

江山如画,一时多少豪杰!

遥想公瑾当年,小乔初嫁了,雄姿英发,羽扇纶巾,谈笑间,樯橹灰飞烟灭。

故国神游,多情应笑我,早生华发。人间如梦,一樽还酹江月。

Iron Dragon Jizai (fully articulated) Okimono. By Myochin Kiyoharu, Edo Period, 18th/19th century.

Realistically rendered with a long serpentine and undulating body, forged with numerous hammered scales joined inside the body with karakuri tsunagi, the spines finely crafted, the leg joints, head, mouth and ears each constructed of moving parts, its tail clutching the hilt of a gold Shinto sword; signed beneath one foreleg Kiyoharu.
An exquisite example of a jizai okimono, this small but perfectly formed naturalistically-rendered dragon can move its body remarkably smoothly; the limbs and claws are also freely movable and the head and legs turn 180 degrees; it is therefore able to imitate the movements of their real-life counterparts.
