A Blan Boy. Every morning, I thank the Lord I'm Welsh.

21, I used to study Geography at Leicester University, now I plan to pick up learning Welsh again while attempting to get a proper job. Temporarily living in Leicester until I can get back to Cymru.

I like weird music, bad films and shitty comics.

I love all things Welsh, being Welsh myself, and so I often re-blog posts about Welsh history, culture, mythology, art, landscapes, or anything else interesting. This also applies to Europe as a whole, and sometimes to the rest of the World.

I'm happy for anyone to follow me, and generally I follow back. I've no particular political persuasion other than Right Wing(ish), but I don't tend to start talking about politics unless it's a rant on how much I Hate the Labour party.

I don't mind if you, the reader, wants to talk but you should start for I am internet-shy sometimes.

I was once described as "marmite". I think that's fairly accurate.

Leah, the herpetologist, and a big buttress.   A friend of mine was studying the effects buttresses had on the communities around them- the idea was that trees with buttresses would collect more leaf matter and therefore, host more diverse communities of arthropods.  The answer seemed to be yes, especially in the cases of ant diversity.

Really happy my woodland walk post has got over 100 notes. It’s my first ever post to get that high!

I thought my abandoned stone barn photos would be more popular though. I hope it does get seen, I discovered that only by chance. It was a right little adventure for me.

Photo reblogged from Flag Log with 14 notes

flaglog:

Russia, 1858-1883
It’s hard to imagine (non-communist) Russia using anything but the current flag, but they actually had quite a different one for a while there in the 18th century. The black and gold colours came from their coat of arms, and the white stripe was added to distinguish it from what was then the flag of Austria. The flag was designed under German influence and never really caught on with the Russian public.
The old tricolour (often called the “Tsarist” or “Romanov” flag) is probably way more popular now than it ever was back in its heyday. Hardline radicals and nationalists have embraced it as some kind of symbol of Russia’s glorious past or something. There’s even a proposal to restore the flag to its former status as the national flag. Probably won’t go anywhere, but it’s certainly a sign of the times.

Voyager Golden Record 1977

If the human race manages to kill itself, a set of pictures and sounds of Earth were put on Voyager 1 and 2. This time capsule of sorts, was intended for alien or far-future human life that may encounter the Voyager. It would help them understand the culture and diversity of life on Earth. Carl Sagan headed the committee that chose what would go inside.

Here are some of the pictures

Celebrating 20 Years Of Brit Pop! By Chris Weston
Perp #1: “Hey, Now, (What’s The Story?), it’s only Cigarettes & Alcohol!”
Dredd: “It’s A Crime.”
"But - I’m a Rock And Roll Star!”
"Button it, punk - do you think you’re going to Live Forever?”
“Definitely..Maybe!”
"Less of the lip, sonny! Control: two for the cubes, litany of crimes, drugs, cigarettes, lewd behaviour (possibly engaging services of prostitutes - check the girls, too) - seemed to want to go out in some kinda Shampagne supernova! Sentence to be determined, after we’ve checked for criminal records back in Brit-Cit!”
Perp #2: “Some Might Say, we’re Heroes!”
Dredd: “Listen Up, I Can Tell A Liar..
"Perps are on a holding post on the corner of Gallagher & Albarn, there’s a couple of Brits that need to be popped!
"Hey,creeps, Stop Crying Your Hearts Out - and Don’t Look Back In Anger, either!”
Perps #1&2 (whispering: “And yew said, ‘Let’s go ta Mega-City-frigging-One, and make ah fortunes!" "Shut it, our kid!”

Sincerest apopolgies to Chris Weston & a certain ’90s “Brit Pop" band, for all my terrible puns -I don’t think our current crop of script droids have anything to worry about!!
