Either screaming about opera, or talking shit about something related to opera.

GIF USAGE: while I'm happy to see my gifs used as reaction images on tumblr, please DO NOT REPOST here or on any other site without giving me credit. (Preferably also ask me before you'd use one, as there are definitely some I would NOT like to see outside tumblr.)

Alternatively, make your own damn gifs.






I’m very cozily wrapped up in a blanket on my bed, blasting that Solti Zauberflöte and refusing to care about anything else for the rest of the day

Greek Gilded Silver Ibex Rhyton, 4th Century BC

The end represents the forepart of the animal lying down, legs folded under the body. It has a woolly fleece formed of long wavy locks. The body of the vessel is decorated at the base with golden ovals, and on top with Greek-style palmettes, topped with a lip decorated with more golden ovals.It is
probably the work of a Greek master for a prominent person of the era.

The zoomorphic rhyton, widely used in the East, Greece and Thrace, appears to have developed in Anatolia around the early 2nd millennium BC, eventually becoming popular in the 8th century BC. Popularity of the rhyton grew in Athens and surrounding areas during the 5th century BC.

Bottles of Gatorade Blue Bolt floating in a bath of Powerade Mountain Blast, 2013

I can’t tell if this is seriously art or if it’s just tongue in cheek sarcastic art or if it’s post-ironic ironic art, or ironic art, or literally just a joke and that is so not okay.
