They don’t really touch. Women don’t shake hands with men. So the first time Darcy touches Elizabeth is when he helps her into the carriage. Which is a really beautiful moment because it’s the first skin on skin touch. I think today, we don’t think twice about that at all. I shake people’s hands, I give them a kiss, whatever. It’s interesting to think, if you don’t have that tactile nature, how important one touch can be. - Keira Knightley


At the Saturday matinee of the Louisville Ballet’s season opener Swan Lake, the audience, who had already given a standing ovation to the performance, were privy to a surprise after the curtain call. Artistic Director Bruce Simpson took to the stage and addressed the audience. He talked about the importance of both individuality and community as an artist, referencing the main dancers of the afternoon: Erica De La O (Odette/Odile) and Kristopher Wojtera (Siegfried) who, he reminded us, have danced with the company for ten years. He invited Mr. Wotjera to say a few words. As Mr. Simpson handed the microphone to him, realization began to creep through the Whitney. Holding a small box, Mr. Wotjera announced to Ms. De La O (and more than two thousand delighted audience members) his love for her and, kneeling to her, he asked her to be his wife. Company and audience alike broke into delighted applause, and a surprised Ms. De La O nodded. In true ballet fashion she executed a graceful curtsey to him before they embraced each other – a fitting coda to the afternoon’s love story.Kristopher Wojtera proposing to Erica De La O.

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal
