Mere, New York City, old enough to know better. Sort of a personal blog, sort of a fandom/music blog, sort of a god knows what blog, but whatever it is I am pretty scrupulous about tagging because we all have that shit we'd rather light ourselves on fire than see another post about.

One Set Per Episode
 Thomas + Jimmy (#401)  


I love so much the way Thomas whispers Jimmy’s name in their first S4 scene… and their closeness during the whole episode.

It’s not everyday that you see a fine art photography project based on the adventures of a tiny Batman figurine trekking across Texas. 

French photographer Rémi Noël created a photographic map of Texas filled with black and white images of a toy Batman exploring the vast state. 

Clever Photos of a Tiny Batman Exploring Texas

At the Saturday matinee of the Louisville Ballet’s season opener Swan Lake, the audience, who had already given a standing ovation to the performance, were privy to a surprise after the curtain call. Artistic Director Bruce Simpson took to the stage and addressed the audience. He talked about the importance of both individuality and community as an artist, referencing the main dancers of the afternoon: Erica De La O (Odette/Odile) and Kristopher Wojtera (Siegfried) who, he reminded us, have danced with the company for ten years. He invited Mr. Wotjera to say a few words. As Mr. Simpson handed the microphone to him, realization began to creep through the Whitney. Holding a small box, Mr. Wotjera announced to Ms. De La O (and more than two thousand delighted audience members) his love for her and, kneeling to her, he asked her to be his wife. Company and audience alike broke into delighted applause, and a surprised Ms. De La O nodded. In true ballet fashion she executed a graceful curtsey to him before they embraced each other – a fitting coda to the afternoon’s love story.
