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.
a round of applause for fred astaire’s upper body strength to keep her in the air and for ginger rogers’s guts because holy crap
she had to trust that fucker
…and as I like to remind everyone…BACKWARDS AND IN HEELS!
Day 3 of 365 - My Chemical Romance, “Planetary (GO!)”
if my velocity starts to make you sweat
then just don’t let go
Cosima + talking with her hands
stop what you doing and press play, you’ll not regret it
Look alive, sunshine
109 in the sky but the pigs won’t quit
You’re here with me
Dr. Death Defying
I’ll be your surgeon, your proctor, your helicopter
Pumpin’ up the slaughtermatic sounds to keep you live
A system failure for the masses
Anti-matter for the master plan
Louder than god’s revolver and twice as shiny
This ones for all you rock and rollers
All you crash queens and motor babies
The future is bulletproof
The aftermath is secondary
It’s time to do it now, and do it loud
Killjoys, make some noise!
The artwork of Valerie Hegarty born 1967 in Burlington, Vermont, USA almost seems to hover between two worlds: those of art and real life. Much of Hegarty’s work appears to begin with a classically styled piece of “fine art”: a still life painting, or presidential portrait for example. In some way, then, the real world begins to impose itself on the work. Some frames and stretchers begin growing branches and sprouting leaves. Other paintings are riddled with bullets or burnt by fire. The story inside the painting violently mingles with a story outside of it. The painted world and the lived world meet to tempestuous result. via Hi-Fructose
