fernweh [feyrn-vey]
(noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home.  (via dietcrackcocaine)

What you get when you watch this video:

  • The catchiness of Blurred Lines while maintaining your self-respect
  • An education!

I love this video because

a) it takes the catchy tune of a disgrace of a song and turns it into something glorious

b) includes the line “Get out of the gene pool” and any song with that line deserves everything

we should make this more popular than blurred lines

I can’t believe I put off watching this, because it was figuratively fantastic.

I think “literally fantastic” would work here
