are you kidding me
who gave you the right
This was once the most common representation of female bodies. The rolls of fat and pudgy bellies existed along with thick thighs and broad hips. Some of those bodies were slim, some were chubby, some were fat, but they weren’t stretched out and smoothed out in Photoshop. They acted like bodies do, they looked real and believable. We lost that somewhere along the way, when people in the fashion business started wiping out any inconvenient fold, making us think they don’t exist and to have them is a blasphemy. Maybe it’s about time we remember they are perfectly normal and everyone has them, sometimes or all the time, no matter skinny or fat.
I want to add that those sculptures were idealized and were considered a cannon of beauty. Back then this was considered perfect and beautiful and how every woman should be.
This goes to show you how there is no physical definition of beauty. It all depends on the person.
Leonard Bernstein conducting “Overture to Candide” with the London Symphony Orchestra, December 13, 1989 (x)
We used to watch Leonard Bernstein’s children’s educational videos in music class when I was little, and he was just so endearing. Even the kids who didn’t care so much about music couldn’t help but smile at how much he got into conducting, and how he’d always swipe his sweaty hair back off his forehead with one hand while conducting.

When asked what advice she would give dancers today, Butler said “(What I would tell them) if they wanted to listen – and I never listened when I was young – is that they need to know that dancing is not just about the body.”
"They (the young dancers) need to know that to have a full life as a dancer, you have to get rid of this idea of perfectionism.”
"You need to cultivate your brain: feed your mind and body. You need to have that connection because when a performer is fulfilled, they have this presence which everybody talks about.”
Okay so I now have gif technology. It’s not great quality, but I’m doing it. I’ve been saying I should do it for months and Cartagia happened to be the one to get me going. So prepare yourselves, there are going to be a ton of
londoBabylon 5 gifs headed your way.
Edit: [Apparently Tumblr has size limits I don’t fully understand, so click through to a higher quality version.]
The butler guy is so “FML, I’m going to die for not catching that now.”
