Cypress Hill and Blink 182 are obsessed with National Geographic’s Instagram

2 minutes reading time

What do you do if you’re a band that hasn’t had a hit in a while? According to Cypress Hill and Blink 182 the answer is obsessively following National Geographic’s Instagram account.

 

1. People have been following Cypress Hill’s Instacrush for a while now.

 

2. The love is real.

 

3. They exclusively comment in emojis.

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio On this day (October 5th) 1914 French pilot Louis Quenault opened fire on a German aircraft, marking the dawn of air combat. I've been working for over a year now on a project about the aftermath of the First World War. The war was the first major conflict involving the large-scale use of aircraft. Although aircraft then were limited and the bombs and their stowage elementary, strategic and tactical bombing
date from the earliest days of the war. Here a photograph of a targeting range complete with retired merchant ship at DIO (Defence Infrastructure Organisation) Holbeach, an Air Weapons Range in Lincolnshire, England. Use of the range began in the 1920s, with biplanes firing and
dropping bombs over the area. Observation towers parallel to the target line are manned and allow the fall of aircraft ordnance to be calculated for accuracy by means of triangulation. Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. @natgeo @simonnorfolkstudio

4. Recently this passionate affair turned into a love triangle when Blink 182 started doing the very same thing.

Photo by @FransLanting “Eye to Eye” Inside every animal is an individual with its own emotions and needs. When I photograph animals I try to bring out their personalities just as people photographers do that with their subjects. In Belize I spent several hours with this magnificent male cougar before he relaxed to a dreamy pose that I felt captured his mood. I share this image to recognize World Animal Day, October 4—a day of action for animal rights and welfare. The date coincides with the feast day for Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of the other beings on the great tree of life. @natgeotravel @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #cougar #mountainLion #puma #bigcats #photooftheday #picoftheday #nature #beauty #naturelovers #animal #wildlife #worldanimalday

5. Usually they find an emoji version of what’s in the picture, but if they can’t, they go with the next best thing.

 

6. They call attention to the very real need for a hammerhead shark emoji.

 

7. It gets very literal.

Photo by @amivitale. I’m delighted to share a 360 video I was able to create with baby pandas in Chengdu, China which you can find on @natgeo. It was a privilege to spend time with this very rare, finicky, endangered animal. As soon as I put the 360 degree cameras in the enclosure, the six month old bears would immediately find them and attack! They also loved to climb up my legs and extracting their teeth and claws was sometimes painful but well worth it. It’s hard to imagine, but these animals were once as mythical and elusive as Bigfoot. They have been around for millions of years, but were only made known to the western world within the last century. The first panda was captured alive only in 1936. With only a few thousand in the world, and a national symbol for the Chinese, getting close, without interfering with their biology and conservation, and in a way that is acceptable to their understandably protective minders, was challenging. And in a region where bad environmental news is common, the Giant Panda might prove to be the exception and a testament to the perseverance and efforts of Chinese scientists and conservationists. By breeding and releasing pandas, augmenting existing populations, and protecting habitat, China may be on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador and in the process put the wild back into an icon.

8. It’s hard to see what’s growing on these fields, so better safe than sorry.

Video @lucalocatelliphoto flying over the Westland, The Netherlands, during a classic foggy-rainy day. This area is the most advanced in the world for agro-farming technology where crops grow around the clock and in every kind of weather. The futuristic Dutch farmers of the Westland believe that we need to grow more with less and in a healthy environment to solve the famine which will afflict our planet in the next decades. Those greenhouses inside have the perfect environment to optimized the crops growing. Fully automated on climate, water and without using chemicals. Hot weather is ideal for traditional farming, but it could be a real enemy for this agro-farming systems. Many countries around the world including China, Indonesia, USA, Pakistan, north European countries among others are investing in this king of agro-farming technology to grow vegetables.

9. They show their sympathies with hardships around the world.

Mumbai residents prepared for incoming heavy monsoon rains last week. Torrential downpour is flooding India’s financial capital and disrupting transport. Mumbai International Airport, India’s second busiest, had to divert four flights and shut down operations for about a half an hour today, September 19, 2017. "Almost half of the world's population lives in areas affected by these monsoons, and even slight deviations from the normal monsoon pattern can have great impact," said Noah Diffenbaugh, an associate professor of earth and atmospheric sciences and interim director of the Purdue Climate Change Research Center. Diffenbaugh’s research group found that climate change could influence monsoon dynamics by decreasing summer precipitation and delaying the season’s start.

10. But usually they’re dolphinitely having a good time.

 

11. Every now and then they mix it up by showing how the picture was taken.

Photo @lucalocatelliphoto while on assignment for @natgeo , I flew my drone over this village in the the Netherlands' South Holland province, known for its iconic 18th-century windmills. Its water-management network features 19 mills and 3 pumping stations, plus dikes and reservoirs that control flooding in the polder. This unique trademark of the country is called Kinderdjik and it's a Unesco protected site. The windmills of Kinderdijk were built to keep the low-lying lands of the Alblasserwaard dry. Facing each other. It's showing how the Dutch have been using water to their benefit for over 1000 years.

12. It’s truly a wild ride.

 

13. Fortunately, there is a place for both of them in Nat Geo’s heart.

 

14. Sometimes the one out-does the other.

Photo @lucalocatelliphoto Here we are at Koppert Kress greenhouse, in the Netherlands, the largest world wide company producing micro vegetables. LED lights casts a red glow on leafs and workers. The range in taste from onions to oysters of those leafs that I tasted was incredible. Top chefs around the world love this company.Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to see more about agro-farming technology to feed the world in the next decades. #hunger Online: www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2017/09/holland-agriculture-sustainable-farming/ #hunger #food #foodcrisis #agriculture #greenhouse #sustainable #organic #solution #green #modern #modernfarmer #future #futuristic #netherlands #drone #dronephotography #transition #drone #dronefly #dronevideos #dronephotography #wageningen

15. But hey, if an open relationship works, it works.

 

16. A new fandom is born

 

It’s a love story for the ages.

Watches an almost unhealthy amount of tv series, and has no minor comedy obsession. That's…
