Babushka of Baikal

76 years old grandmother Lyubov Morekhodova (Lyubov = love) from Siberia is not an ordinary pensioner. Despite her age, she managed to not only survive frosty weather but also gained attention for her skating skills.

Babushka Lyubov learned to skate at the age of seven and now she spends her retirement days gliding across one of the deepest lakes in the world, Baikal.

Retired technology engineer lives in a modest house and takes care of her beloved animals consisting of dogs, a cat, hens, roosters, calves, bulls, and cows. She wakes up at 5.30 am to feed the cows and let them out to graze on a hill.

Every day, to shorten the distance, she puts on her skates made in 1943 and glides across the lake to make sure that the cows wouldn’t get lost.

Since her husband died in 2011 babushka Lyubov lives alone, but she is not lonely.

During the summer her grandchildren and nephews come to visit. Even though her family encouraged this fearless lady to move to the city, she insisted on staying because she claims to be happy and fulfilled living in the midst of S.I.B.E.R.I.A.

Without a doubt, she’s made in Russia. What an absolute champ!!!

Forbidden Love

“Inspired by Icarus, who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. If he was in love with the sun, then this might as well be a story of forbidden love.”

This is how the author himself explains the illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun.

Gabriel Picolo from Brazil is the artist behind this beautiful yet heartbreaking story about love, fire, and loss. He is a traditional and digital illustrator who started gaining traction in 2014 when his 365 days project of drawing every day gained some loyal fans.

“For my drawings, I take inspiration from Studio Ghibli, Disney, video games among other stuff,” the artist wrote on his Patreon. “I love to draw something that is relatable to me and other people as well.”

The illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun is inspired by the tragic mythology.

Gabriel’s interpretation is beautiful, unique and heartbreaking all at the same time.

This is so sad. I know this is how love feels at times… 

Most of the time you’re not the same person as you were where you left off, people constantly change without anyone really noticing until they look back between the past and the present. I’ve change many times after breakups, from my first bf to my last. And even though the essence remains, I am no longer the same.

In short, if you have read the myth of Icarus, then you know how the story ends.

Kesha Looks Amazing!

For the first time in her entire life Christina Aguilera doesn’t look like a drag queen just coming down from a bender in a Sephora, and I don’t know how to feel about it. She looks… good. She looks like if Kesha didn’t turn into fat Elvis.

After only slightly denting the Internet with pictures of Nicki Minaj giving herself herpes in a photo shoot, Paper Magazine seems to have given up on having a break the Internet part 2 moment, and instead features a pared-down Xtina for the cover of their latest issue.

It’s a good move. Seeing Christina looking her usual drag queen/Jersey Shore giving herself a cunnilingus just wouldn’t work. There’s not enough magic left in the bottle.

This hypothetically makeup-free shoot honestly works.

Wearing an inch of clown makeup every day must keep the UV rays at bay.

The accompanying interview doesn’t give up any information about Xtina that you can’t find on google.. Aguilera’s mom was abused, Aguilera has a good voice, she’s a groundbreaker, a risk taker, a grinner, a lover, a sinner, a joker, a smoker, a whatever else… So today is really all about these pictures.

Best she’s looked in years!

BLACK PANTHER

I had a date a yesterday (date as nonsexual) and he took me to the theatre to watch Black Panther.

My date was fine, he was a nice decent guy, educated and not bad looking but also a bit too solemn and fancy for my taste.

I love my guy more relaxed, playful and wild.

On his side, he told me that I was not what he expected, but as a positive remark. He said I was a lot more interesting, intriguing and surprisingly shy… Which made me laugh because (I always get that) I’m conscious that I gave the impression of being just a dumb slut down for cock.

Regardless, it was a good company for a movie night.

Now, Black Panther…

Black Panther was a revelation, Black Panther gave me joy.

But more than the epic visuals or action scenes, my joy was based on this fantasy world where for two hours Africa is not the damned hopeless continent we know.

The cast was impeccable, GODDESS Angela Bassett playing whatever role she plays will always be to me one of the finest actresses Hollywood has. And Danai Gurira was the best thing, along my husband Michael B. Jordan (I’m polygamous af) and also Winston Duke.

Black Panther is unlike any other Marvel film, this one is big on world-building, empowerment, strong (female) characters and jabs at the current state of the world.

The right movie at the right time for a planet in decline.

Canada’s new $10 bill Standing up for Women

The new $10 bill released two days ago was a really big deal.

It featured Canadian woman, civil rights heroine Viola Desmond and she is the first black woman to ever be featured on currency.

But it isn’t only new because of who is on it. It’s also the first Canadian bill to be vertical.

Yes, you heard that right. It’s literally standing up!!

The Bank of Canada decided to change things up in order to feature a larger image of the first woman other than The Queen on Canadian currency, and they wanted to be distinguished from the other bills.

The Bank of Canada wanted this new $10 bill to mean something, and that’s literally standing up for women, minorities, First Nations and human rights!!

Not only Canadian bills are colourful, they’re also not paper but plastic and transparent; and full of holograms. Now this bill is vertical… Do we have the hottest money or what?

Canadian currency FTW!!
