A poem by Jonas

A misty scene
The short onlooker
Eyes that are keen
Not a great cooker

The sun has lowered down
And two know it is time
They must make love
Within trees of pine

Jonas first searches
the woods for her
what cannot be heard
are the steps of the onlooker

The cold moon gleams
It shall take all night
Shibu steps out
Into moonlight

Harder than granite
Jonas grows
He thinks of dirty things
Yet none of his foes

What comes next
Shibu knows
Jonas began
To take off cl—–

They sit for a while
Leaned against a tree
Both bare
Naked and “free”

They may be underage
It does not matter
It is okay
They will not grow any fatter

After some time
Almost two hours
They realize what to do
Using Jonas’s tower

A tree among trees
Though it is the tallest
It cannot freeze
Just for his goddess

Remember this poem
All in entirety
It is not weird
Just unique variety

The onlooker watched
Very closely
Staring and chewing
On a stalk of parsley

To the onlooker it was obvious
Came together with a click
A 5 foot tall boy
And a one foot tall d—

To the girl it must hurt
Hurt extremely bad
But the feeling of happiness
Destroys the pain and sad

Grunting and groaning
A bit of a scream
Jonas is with Shibu
Middle of a dream

He is having fun
Has he gone out of his mind?
Uncarefully, raises his hand
And slaps the behind

As he had a workout
Speaking words so foul
The onlooker shifted
And tossed back his cowl

Long black hair in the light
The onlooker decided to write
A nice, lengthy poem
Of what happened this night

It has became bright
Start of a new day
Death of the night
And now it is today

The sun breaks through
Mist destroyed by sunlight
Jonas bends his back
Shibu screams in delight

A final jolt
A single spasm
Not his fault
One last or—-

She hops off his wood
Jumps away
Jonas stands
It is now day

Now they part
Leaving their way
Having to vacate
Their separate ways

Howls are not in
Into the air
Shibu wanted his thing
And now it is fair

It has been over
it has been done
they together think
it has been fun

Screams no longer ring in the air
cause they know they have finished
Jonas`s pride
has not been diminished

The onlooker wishes
But he will see
how she looks
at his tree

a little painful
but always fine
it kind of hurts
for a period of time

evening wood
is the best
tastes quite good
a mini lovefest

again, they have finished
done making love
it has been over
approved by above

Now what do you crave
It has been fun
Anything else?
Too bad, it’s done

Origami Darth Vader v2

I did not choke on my aspirations,

And I folded through long durations,

The origami Darth Vader is complete,

On a 24 by 24 box pleat,

The sith lord will once again rule the galaxy,

After a droid attack on a wookiee,

He’ll try spinning,

When the fun is beginning,

He sees through the lies of the Jedi,

But can not find ground that is high,

This certainly is a fine addition,

To my origami collection,

I am sorry for each post’s delay,

And I hope you all have a wonderful day,

Not just the men, but the women and children, too,

Happy Star Wars day and May the Fourth be with you

A Review of RŌNIN Division

The fashion sense of our world is quickly enveloping around a new “genre” of dressing: streetwear. The official Reddit community of streetwear has over 530,000 readers; while mostly teenagers and young adults are starting to adopt this new style, older people who wish to spice up their wardrobes can browse the subreddit and still look quite awesome.

Ever since trying on my friend’s thicc black Ronin Division hoodie, I’ve done research to find out more about this brand and why their name isn’t as big as the legendary retailers such as Supreme or BAPE.

The origin of this brand stems from two members of the Hypebeast forums, Yoon and Jarvis. Each year, they posted an official discussion thread with a lookbook of their pieces they planned on releasing. They communicated directly with members of the forum even as more and more people started following their startup. Several members of the forum found it efficient and appealing for a brand to communicate with their customers. This method also allowed them to cultivate what designs they wanted to release.

what do you guys want to see from us this year?

– Yoon, https://hypebeast.com/forums/brands/212092

From their inception several years ago (2012), they’ve taken feedback from various online forums. While their infamous shirts were originally printed on shoddy blanks, their outerwear quickly became renowned for their insanely good quality. The thick fabric is likely one of the softest and highest quality materials you’ve ever felt. Ronin employs cut & sew for their hoodies, a method of buying fabric and embroidering/sewing it together themselves before releasing. Other brands fail to match their quality due to this method.

Much criticism came from their failure to take risks with their clothing early on. However, they used minimal and essential designs to establish themselves in the streetwear community over their first few years. Their most recent drop, Fall/Winter 2017, came extremely late this season (falling on 2/2/2018). Despite the lateness, the pieces’ reception was excellent; like their other drops, sought-after items sold out in mere seconds. For a lesser-known brand, their stocks of items are sold quite quickly to a core part of the streetwear community.

Besides the quality, Ronin has sublime customer service. They contact you via email after you submit a message through their website. Back in 2015, an unknown member of the streetwear community took to the forums to say, “I would just like to give a HUGE shout out to Ronin Division. Completely outstanding customer service!” You can read about their experience here.

Another Reddit user, mohammadaali, recounted his experience meeting one of the creators of the brand:

This man listened to drunk college kids talk about their aspirations, feelings, & other random nonsense for too damn long & believe me I know those guys, we’re close friends and I don’t even think they have interesting enough stories to listen to for hours, but he was so into it. He was all about listening to what they wanted to do and spreading the culture.

In the end, I perceived Ronin Division as an excellent brand that has an immense amount of potential. I recommend you look forward to the next drop and pick up a comfortable hoodie! Their website is www.ronindivision.com.

The Origin of Niagara Falls

The Origin of Niagara Falls

Once upon a time,
In the Land of Above,
There was a Mother and a Father,
Who ruled with tough love,

Their children went to Heaven High,
And flexed their straight As,
They would study every moment they got,
For minutes to hours to days,

Niogre was the son,
With an ugly face,
A large, brown stomach,
One who never made haste,

Nia was the daughter,
Small, weightless, with a heart,
Her parents were extremely proud,
As they considered her very smart,

But one fateful day,
A day of sorrow and woe,
Both children received B+s,
Which is not too bad, I know,

But for the proud, stern parents,
This could not happen again,
They had to teach them a lesson,
They’d committed a deadly sin,

The Father roared a mighty roar,
Lifted the many pounds,
He hefted Niogre and Nia,
And threw them through the clouds,

They fell and fell through the air,
They wish they’d given a confession,
Nia floated slowly to the ground,
But Niogre left a depression

The ground gave way to his weight,
Paving the way for a cliff,
the stones were sharp and jutted,
and the edge of the rock was stiff,

Nia and Niogre were saddened together,
In pain and in quite a daze,
their brains were disoriented,
and their vision was in a haze

But both heard the scream of their father,
it caused them both to turn,
he said, “you scum of children”
“only one of you shall return!”

“With your magical powers,
and your mighty features,
you must outdo each other,
in making magnificent creatures!”

“These creatures must live forever!
A race of success and glory,
they must have the best qualities,
that place them in this story!”

The Father’s thunder stopped,
And Niogre clutched his face,
the siblings had little time,
to create the superior race,

Niogre got to work immediately,
and used his large, misshapen hands,
he worked to create the fiercest force,
that had ever been seen in these lands,

But Nia, the clever Nia,
she thought of many things,
she eventually chose a creature of beauty,
one with a beak and a pair of wings

Both created several herds,
In their habitats,
Nia made a flock of birds,
Niogre, a horde of cats,

At first, Nia laughed,
“You think you can cross the line?
Beat my cardinals, robins, woodpeckers,
With your filthy feline?”

Niogre smiled an ugly grin,
“Imma disrupt the peace,
My lynx, cougar, and jaguar,
Are far better than your geese!”

Nia laughed in his face,
“Out of ten, you’re a four,
You should probably realize,
That our parents love me more!”

The Father heard this go on,
And his voice was hard and rocky,
“I’m not beaming up a little fool
Who has gotten far too cocky!”

And so Niogre won the battle,
Forcing Nia to her fears,
Out of her pair of eyes,
Came a river of tears

She cried and cried and cried,
Sobs, hollers, and bawls,
Her tears filled the depression
Creating Niagara Falls,

She shook and shook,
Now there was none to appease,
Her hair fell from her scalp,
And made the many trees

Out of her spite, Nia made a pledge
Her creativity was finally bloomin’,
She made a creature of grace, smarts, talent,
And called it “the glorious human”

By putting four limbs together,
She caused this sudden upheaval,
Created a race of amazing beings,
Morally good but evil,

The first tribe of Nia’s humans,
Known as the Ongui-nia-hara,
They resided on the shores,
Of the falls of Niagara

These Natives carried a rich culture,
They committed many a vice,
A common cultural custom to see,
Was their annual sacrifice

The humans eventually branched out,
Spread out far and wide,
Across the Earth they went,
There were no laws to abide,

They invented fire and weapons of death,
Corruption in every mind,
It was a rarity to find a human,
Who was morally right and kind

Nia, now Mother Nature, saw this occur,
The various inventions of tools,
The human condemned their own planet,
By burning the fossil fuels,

But in Niagara Falls,
The tribe was truly pure,
For the filth everywhere else,
Nia wasn’t quite sure,

This nefarity of humankind,
Slowly, slowly, unfurled,
Nia’s beautiful creation,
Was now the destruction of the world

And there was the origin of those lands,
The lands of Niagara Falls,
The sound of the water cascading down,
Is the sound of Nia’s calls,

She regrets the creation of human,
They lack the mind to quit,
Nia would emphasize the need,
Of life; to preserve it

The moral of this tale is,
Treat our world kindly,
Don’t be too ignorant nor too cocky,
And treat others very finely

And so ends the story,
Of what nature calls,
The origins of species,
Within Niagara Falls

 

William Jennings Bryan

Here’s a taste of US history!

William Jennings Bryan’s idea for the way that the awful economic status of the United States would be resolved was to insert another metal currency into the current gold dominance of that time. He desired to enact the Free Silver Movement, which would increase revenue of farmers by introducing silver into the economy. It would also reduce the government’s reliance on gold. By helping the laborers and farmers, the wage gap would decrease and the situation of the economy would better. Whereas the addition of silver would reduce its own value in the long run, it would direct sole reliance on gold to a more reliable combination of silver and gold. The national income tax he also proposed would take money from the rich and give it to the poor, improving the common laborer’s quality of life and bridging the US wage gap.

Origami Caesar (Planet of the Apes)


This origami model was folded right after viewing the fantastic finale to the best movie trilogy of this decade. War of the Planet of the Apes inspired me to design this model, and I think it turned out pretty good. I folded it from a 16×16 grid and a ten inch square sheet of paper. Caesar not like Koba. Apes. Together. Strong.
