In 2006 Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada presented World of Shadows: Phantom The Ballet - ballet by Igor Dobrovolskiy. There are the Persian and the torture chamber in this ballet, and the Phantom is assisted by five dancers in scarlet dresses. The action takes place half in real world, half in fictional world, imagined by the Phantom. The story of the Phantom, expressed with dance, is still impressed as with songs. The music by Sergei Rachmaninoff (with additional music by Francis Poulenc) suits the Phantom almost perfectly, I think. The ballet is still on stage!

My Love (Moya Lyubov) is a paint-on-glass-animated 2006 short film directed by Aleksandr Petrov and based on Ivan Shmelyov’s 1927 A Love Story (Istoriya Lyubovnaya). It takes place in the 19th century Russia and tells the story of the sixteen-year-old boy Anton who is torn apart by his feelings for a pure and gentle girl and a femme fatale. Watch it here.
Paint-on-glass animation is a technique for making animated films by manipulating slow-drying oil paints on sheets of glass. Aleksandr Petrov is the most well-known practitioner of this technique; he has used it in seven films, all of which have won numerous awards.
Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!
Reblogging for my bee brethren!
how do i ask a boy out
roses are red
violets are blue
guess what, my bed
has room for two
OH MY GOD NO
twinkle twinkle little star
we can do it in a car
row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
i can make you scream
I feel like the last one is verging dangerously into serial killer territory
