Winona Ryder in high school
“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.
“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”

Alexa Meade : People Transformed Into Paintings
What you are about to see, are not paintings on canvas! Alexa Meade paints with acrylics directly on human flesh creating the illusion of painterly portraits.
“Alexa Meade is an installation artist based in the Washington, DC area. Her background in the world of political communications has fueled her intellectual interest in the tensions between perception and reality.

If you ever find yourself in Budapest, Hungary for the winter holidays, don’t miss the wonderfully festive Christmas trams, local streetcars decorated with over 30,000 twinkling LED lights. People of all ages and nationalities marvel at the special trolleys each winter, mesmerized by the sight of thousands of blue-and-white lights glittering like stars in the evening or the glow of a futuristic vehicle jetting through time, while passengers also get to enjoy seeing the whole city lit up with Christmas cheer as they travel through the streets.
