Ballet Linky

Happening in Wellington: Ballet for Everyone. This video is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Maybe your city needs Ballet for Everyone too?

The most misread poem in America: interesting article that, oddly, includes a very detailed recap of a New Zealand car commercial.

1902 trading cards depicting “women of the future”

Paintings tell kind of a love story in the shadow of giant robots… (via Craig Oxbrow)

The British PM and the pig. Two articles that are worth your time: Why people are laughing and (via Ivan) what it says about the state of British politics.

This sounds lovely – how traditional stories become part of the British landscape (via Hugh Dingwall)

Charming short telling a story with 1978 vintage Star Wars figures. (Coulda done without the “twist ending” though…)

The Twin Peaks tarot (via Pearce)

Someone discovered a third all-purpose caption for New Yorker cartoons.

And finally… I almost didn’t include this because I prefer not to go blue in the linky, but somehow I’ve talked myself into it… a hilarious three minute re-edit of apparently-legendary 1980s spoken word album “The Way to become a Sensuous Woman”. Definitely NSFW. (Dangerous Minds has more info.)

    If we’re lucky, in a few years they can make another ballet for everyone video that has more than one father in it. (Not, to be clear, that the video makers are responsible for women almost always being primary care givers, etc. I’m just hoping that changes, and quickly, and this new reality will then be reflected in pieces such as this.)

    I thought it was interesting they made a rule of “Your child must be vaccinated”. Most places I know of just take a log of who is and who isn’t. It’s nice to have somewhere with kids with depressed immune systems can go without their parents having to be worried about what they’ll catch.

    Jamie: absolutely. I was pleased to note that at kindy pickup the other day, dads outnumbered mums 2 to 1, which is a sign of change for sure! Also I’d hope that the next video has more little boys in it too!

    Stephanie: yeah, good point I hadn’t thought about
