The human body is a neat contraption

This is an older clip of Les Twins, a dancing duo from France. Yes, they're twins. And although there are tons of videos of them doing their thing all over the internet, for whatever reason I've always liked this one best. 

The things our bodies are capable of, and our imaginations, continually astonish me. 

Any moment...

I spent last night at the Johnson Public House in Madison, Wisconsin, trying to get some writing done. I was stuck.

Espresso. Still stuck. Sparkling water. Still stuck. A few 3 Floyds wheat ales. Still stuck.

All the while, this wonderfully ginormous painting by Natalie Jo Wright was staring down at me. 

Sadly, in my case anyway, nothing happened.

But today will be different. Any moment...

Francesco Vullo

If you occasionally like your art on the clever side, and yes, I occasionally like my art on the clever side, then the work of Francesco Vullo is worth a look.

The 22-year old Italian digital artist was featured recently in The Creators Project where he said: "My work is strongly influenced by events and contemporary culture and has many ironic nuances and messages of social criticism. I try to reveal irreverent visions of today’s world remixing classic paintings, objects or known personalities with ironic elements and show the negative side of social networks, politics, industry, and commerce."

Yup. I'd say that's exactly what he does. Here's a quick look at some of his work. His insta is definitely worth a follow. And his site is here.

Tanu stacks coins better than you and I stack coins

So there's this Japanese guy named Tanu that stacks coins like a super genius. He posts photos of his stackings to Twitter. That's about all I know. Because I don't know how to read Japanese. Because I'm not what you'd call "book smart." Or "smart smart."

I've enjoyed stacking a rock or two in my day. But this? This right here? Holy crap!

Here's a glimpse at how he does it. Not a tube of super glue in sight.

Tim Linhart: Making Ice Music

Well here is something I haven't seen before. One day Colorado native Tim Linhart was in the mountains when he decided to carve an upright string bass made of ice. He loved the sound and went on to form Ice Music, a winter concert series in Sweden. The music is quite beautiful as are Tim's observations about human connection to water, frozen or otherwise. 

You can learn more about the concert series here.

As for this particular video, it's part of the Buck The Cubicle series which is about people who find inspiration in their decidedly offbeat occupations.
