God's own prototype. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

 

Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin reuniting with their flock of baby Russian Caps gives me life.

Also, only Alexander Ovechkin could instagram/tweet a picture of his best friend and best friend’s wife holding a painting that shows them getting married— a painting that Alexander Ovechkin GAVE to Sasha and his wife in the first place— and still wind up making me completely convinced that Ovi and Sasha are forever in love.

(Part of me would love to think Ovi secretly painted it himself, because that’s how he rolls.)

Yeah, yeah, I’m sure your OTP is very cute. But here are Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin in each other’s clothes back in the day. And at a wedding. That they went to together.

Yep.

Denver, CO-based artists Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker, collectively known as Hari & Deepti (previously featured here), have created a brand new series of their fantastically-themed and exquisitely detailed paper light box sculptures. Entitled “Oh, The Places You Will Go!”, these pieces are currently being shown as part of an exhibition at the Black Book Gallery in Denver.

"The artist couple were inspired by recent travels through Moab, Utah and Yellowstone, Wyoming, and transformed elements of their adventures into delicately hand-cut paper sculptures infused with mythology and science fiction. Each piece is lit from behind or below with LED strips and the boxes are exhibited in dark rooms to enhance the effect."

Hari & Deepti will also be showing work this December at Art Basel Miami 2014 for the Scope International Contemporary Art Show.

To check out more of Hari & Deepti’s wonderful creations visit the Black Book Gallery website and keep up with their latest work on Instagram

Right, so… I’m kind of wondering how significant the shots of the clock are in this scene, to be honest?

Because, while the medley relay is very much a team effort it’s still basically made up out of four individual races & scouts people do pay attention to the times in between the strokes (and even before/after the turn*). X.x;

I thought it was interesting that we got to see the time ticking not once, but twice here.

Also, I’m sure a lot of people have pointed this out already - but Haruka is once again looking at (the direction of, at least? x’D) the score board. While everyone else is looking in a completely different direction, even.

I also wonder how Haruka feels about Rin basically finishing his leg faster than Haruka there. Rin jumped just a little later than Haruka & yet he’d already caught up by the turn, after all. *bites lip!*

* = I’m reading this book about Micheal Phelps that talks about “negative-splits” (basically speeding up after the turn, which isn’t rare in competitive swimming but is known as being really difficult to master even for professional swimmers) and how Phelps is really well known for that trait. Guess who shares that particular trait with him? Yup, Nanase Haruka. Who apparently has an intuitive - dare I say natural? - talent for pacing himself like a pro. It sure puts his 200M Freestyle race with Makoto in a different light, I guess. x’D
