Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.
But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her.
I can’t stop watching this.
FRED ASTAIR AND GINGER ROGERS WERE THE MOST FUCKING INCREDIBLE COUPLE WHEN IT CAME TO ONSCREEN CHEMISTRY
WAS LIKE FLUID GOLD and i don’t just mean the dancing they were perfect in every movie they ever did together and I strongly urge you all to watch their flicks
Valencia, Venezuela-based artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez creates extraordinary paintings that are so hyperrealistic, they seem to come to life and flow right off the canvas. He adds another dimension to the lifelike paintings with playful snapshots of himself interacting with his creations.
Look at that damn foreshortening!!!
Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.
The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

how odd there is no one crying ‘cultural appropriation’. how odd indeed.

Waiting for the bus just got a bit more fun with this large typography sculpture recently unveiled in Baltimore. Created by Madrid-based artist collective mmmm…—a creative collaboration between Emilio Alarcón, Alberto Alarcón, Ciro Márquez, and Eva Salmerón—the unique bus stop functions as a place to rest, as well as shelter from the sun, rain, and wind.
