The title says it all. This tumblr contains comic book covers, video game art, horror related subjects, the occasional picture of a beautiful girl, Bruce Campbell and other stuff. If you feel like it, look through the archives. Here is a link to my deviantart page. It has links to my other tumblrs and other sites that I am on. http://derrickthebarbaric.deviantart.com/ Leave me a comment if you want.
Photographer Walter Sachels was terrified of death, so much so he refused to see his mother after she passed away. Upon entering his 70s, Schels finally decided to overcome his fear through a bold, bizarre project – photographing individuals before and directly after their death.
Schels and his partner Beat Lakotta began approaching potential individuals at hospices in Berlin and Hamburg. The pair were on constant alert, at times running out in the middle of the night to shoot before the undertaker would come.
Though emotionally draining, Schels recognized that the series became an important epitaph to people before they actually died. With family and friends unable to cope with the looming truth, terminally ill patients often feel completely isolated.
“It’s so good you’re doing this”, Schels quoted a dying man to The Guardian, “No one else is listening to me, no one wants to hear or know what it’s really like.”
Schels is no longer terrified of death and now sees avoidance of the issue as a serious problem in contemporary society, people unable to be truly present for loved ones when they need them most. Life Before Death is an attempt to confront our worst fears and perhaps, to see those nearing the end in a more human light. For the individual stories behind each of the portraits click here.

Creeps confirmed as loser.
Also d&d HYPE! Since he just did a loose explanation I’ll hammer out the details.
At the moment we plan to play at 9 EST, 8 CST or 6 PST whatever time zone you prefer. On Sunday September 28. (The time may change but at the moment this is the plan.)
We’ve spent a long time hammering out bugs and attempting to streamline combat to make it somewhat less tedious to watch. So there shouldn’t be any… Uhhh what does -blank- do again? Well in theory at least, we could still mess up but that would be our own faults not the tech.
So here’s praying that the crits are on our side.
OH it will also be viewable over at Creep’s >Twitch<
WHO WILL DIE? WHO WILL SURVIVE!? WHO WILL ROLL A NATURAL 1?!
didn’t the goblet of fire cover this
because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch
actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?
Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.
And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.
We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.
There’s these two wi-fi names near where I live, one says ‘We can hear you having sex’ and the other reads
‘Yeah, with your mum, bitch’.
…you’re lucky I’m a stubborn asshole because these took way longer to make than I’d like to admit.
Flash! a-ah! saviour of the universe!
Flash! a-ah! he’ll save everyone of us!
