The Blitzers - Composed by Masashi Hamauzu, Nobuo Uematsu, Junya Nakano - Final Fantasy X OST

TBH the only thing I relate the FIFA World Cup to is Blitzball.

Little beauties.

I can get trapped for hours looking at industrial sewing machines.

I am especially fond of Union Special machines. There are too many beauties to choose to picture in one Tumblr post, for starters take a look at some here.

My obsession is fueled by my German/Austrian heritage, I think - a huge chunk of my relatives were engineers and technical draftsmen (i.e.: “touched,” OCD, anal retentive).

I especially admire this company because of this reason:

Established in 1881, Union Special is the oldest, largest and last Industrial Sewing Machine manufacturing company remaining in the United States, producing “Finest Quality” sewing machines and parts from casting to finished product all under one roof.

I’d imagine the old models are good if not better than(? want to test one if I can…) select machines from different manufacturers produced today - some of these would be particularly nice to try out denim with, leather…

Last two photos are of a Singer Model 81-60 industrial - just throwing it in there for my own personal archival purposes.

Look how cute n happy this doctors office is! The nurses wear little pastel pink outfits and there’s a rilakkuma doll everywhere you look

This looks like a Pokémon center.

Nurse Joy included. I like the pink doors, too. They should have a Jigglypuff dolls instead to simulate the in-game experience:

Anna “日本人”

I remember scanning that Anna photo in HQ and posting it in the Anna Wintour TFS board back in the day. It’s floating around there in the archives, I probably also have it stored in one of my USB sticks… very likely I scanned it from In Vogue: An Illustrated History of the World’s Most Famous Fashion Magazine. Mine has this cover, however.

Reminiscing. Anyways, both ladies share a resemblance. Anna Wintour should have a personal Japanese hairstylist. The fashionable, trendies that do those wispy anime/Final Fantasy-esque styles.

Damn city workers chopping down 100+ year old palm trees outside because the trees ‘break city ordinances’… yes, continue destroying centuries of beautiful, majestic foliage… fools…

I have memories with those trees. :’(


Angela “Big Ang” Raiola from the reality series Mob Wives reminds me so much of Tifa Lockhart from the Final Fantasy video game series…

Various character vectors of Tifa from FFVII, Kingdom Hearts in her FF Advent Children costume, and Dissidia.
