I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Pro Showcase - The International Lindy Hop Championships

"Routines must be a minimum of two-minutes and a maximum of four-minutes in length. Competitotrs select their own music. This is a no-holds barred competition. All lifts, drops, aerials, airsteps, and acrobatics are allowed. This will be an invitational social dance competition open to dancers determined by the organizers." -from ILHC

Kevin St. Laurent & Jo Hoffberg - MY FAVORITE

I debated back and forth over whether or not to place them first because I know that my extreme love for Jo has got to skew my opinion, but after re-watching this routine and my next pick several times, I think this is the most accurate for me. Kevin & Jo are incredible performers and they nail their routines because they spend so much time on them. They don’t just dance through the moves beautifully, but they have thought about their facial expressions and what their fingers are doing while they move. There is just incredible attention to detail. You just know that it basically doesn’t matter when the photographer snaps their photos…because Kevin & Jo just look perfect the whole time. 

Side Note: Jo’s tights. And hair. ALWAYS. 

  • 0:20 - Jo & Kevin come right out and own the floor and I love it! 
  • 1:00 - This is just beautiful. I love that they aren’t afraid to take it slow at the start of this routine and just milk the music for everything that it has. 
  • 1:20 - THESE ARMS. Man. The simplest things are my favorite most of the time. It just shows a commitment to making every single move count. It doesn’t have to be a fancy trick to be awesome. 
  • 1:29 - SO CUTE. And Kevin fucking WINKS at the end. Seriously. These people are amazing. 
  • 1:50 - Look at those legs. And the height on that jump. How does she even?
  • 2:39 - She is so sassy. SO SASSY. And she just has all of the time in the world. Man, I love her.

All the founding fathers

Lincoln

I’d take a shit on Ronald Reagan a couple times

Good lord it would be so much fun

I’d fuck Robert E. Lee’s ass up

King Leopold I’ll get fucked up

I’d smack the piss outta Susan B. Anthony

Fade Margaret Sanger on sight 

Pistol whip Christopher Columbus

I personally want to go back and tell the woman that accused Emmitt Till of whistling at her than she aint fucking fine all white i got my foot on her neck.

Yo if time travel was possible I’m heading straight back to 1491. Columbus & his homeys is getting domed, All the european monarchs’ castles are getting firebombed, I’m smuggling rifles to everyone on the west coast of Africa, & penicillin to everyone in the Americas.

Cut that shit off from jump

I’m pistol whipping all the crackers the bombed the church killing the four girls before they even make to the church.

Also stomping a mudhole into Byron De La Beckwith for killing Medgar Evers and walking around all smug and shit. 

I would warn the Black Panthers about J Hoover’s ole bitch ass and plan operation Black Reign. Hoover can get these hands for Cointel Pro. I would do a drive by all through the south hitting every KKK member. I’d take a trip to Tulsa,OK and arm every Black person with bullet proof vest, machine guns, and letting know the government gone drop a bomb so they should get their affairs in order.

Imma take a picture of Cleopatra, the Spinx, and some random civilians on the streets of Cairo to prove to these racist whites that the ancient Egyptians were in fact, Black.

In fact!

Imma take my self past Victorian Europe and take a couple selfies with the Black nobility and the ruling Moors as well.

You know what!?

Imma mosey on over to Jerusalem and take a couple selfies with Black Jesus while I’m at it.
