We Should All Be So Lucky As To Find Something In This World That Makes Us Happy: Sequins

Did you see the photos today of that 30-story high rise in Shanghai that is burning to the ground? Oh my goodness. 42 people have died and more than 90 are injured, and that is, as these things go, only SO FAR. It’s also one of those weird situations where the photos are really stunning and almost beautiful? Don’t get me wrong: actual nightmare IN PROGRESS, but you know what I mean. Did you ever see Terminator 3 (also known as The Best of the Terminator Franchise Just Kidding It’s Awful)? At the end of Terminator 3 there is that scene where Skynet launches, like, ALL the missiles, and you see them soar out over the planet, and it’s really neat looking. There is just something horrifyingly beautiful about the end of things. But make no mistake: things are ending. Constantly. Forever.

So, we might as well find something that makes us happy before they do. For example: tons of fucking sequins.

I like to think that the look of shock and regret that crosses his face is not so much that he realizes that he swore on television, but that in the reflection off the camera lens he got a brief glimpse of the abyss. (Via TheDailyWhat.)
