In the heat of the New York summer, Gothamist associate editor Rebecca Fishbein and videographer Jessica Leibowitz spent a day in Coney Island, Brooklyn visiting the World of Swimming‘s Mermaid School. The skilled instructors at the school teach the students how to swim like a mermaid, a feat that requires a great deal of core strength, and in doing so, encourage self-confidence and pride. Ummm ok, sure…it’s all fun and games until someone drowns. Merman…Merman! 😉
Loving these anti-greeting cards from the Hate Mail shop, which will allow you to send out some beautiful insults to your favourite enemies – they’ll even customise by personally handwriting your message and sending to your recipient anonymously. Standard insults such as ‘Eat A Dick!’ are available or you can create a fresh one 🙂
Film editor Himker Rovde has created a brilliant montage using super hero television shows and films from the 1970s and 1980s to create a real-looking promo for an early version of ‘The Avengers‘ which even includes Hawkeye 😉 Clever clogs – love it 🙂
Subject of a recent installment of Great Big Story, artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams live on an awesome floating island they built themselves off the coast of Vancouver Island called Freedom Cove. Among the island’s amenities are a dance floor, a lighthouse, and four greenhouses. This is too cool for words! – Happy Friday, everyone 🙂
Designed by the artist duo New Scenario for the Berlin Biennal, Body Holes is an interesting project that aims to use the human body, including the mouth, nose, ears, navel, anus, and other more discreet orifices, as a gallery space, exhibiting various artworks by artists such as Paul Barsch, Tilman Hornig, Yves Scherer, Rachel De Joode, Blunt Skensved or Viktor Fordell. Very original work indeed – enjoy 🙂
