One of the few things I haven’t minded about Frozen's success is the fact that it's helped Idina Menzel make a stronger leap from stage-fame to more mainstream-fame than the film version of RENT or her stint on Glee did.
Still, while “Let it Go” is a decent song - largely because of Idina’s powerhouse voice - it’s basically a poor man’s “Defying Gravity”.
So those of you who love “Let it Go” but have yet to hear the original Broadway recording of “Defying Gravity”, listen and experience a powerful, life-changing eargasm.
I encourage everyone to watch this heartbreaking documentary about the dissolution of the accomplished and lauded visual effects studio Rhythm & Hues (where some friends of mine worked), yet another high-profile casualty of the collapsing VFX industry due the turbulent, ill-structured quagmire that is the movie business. My old buddy Scott Leberecht did a wonderful job directing and editing this story. Definitely worth 30 minutes of your time, particularly if you make your living where art and commerce overlap.
Lithuanian artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė uses cross-stitch embroidery to adorn metallic objects such as plates, spoons, pot lids, lamps, rusty tin cans, pails and shovels, even automobiles. Some of her pieces feature traditional floral motifs while others are much more unusual and playful - the ashtray appears to contain stubbed out ends of cigarettes. The spoon reflects the mouth of the person about to eat from it.
Visit Severija’s website to check out many more examples of her awesome embroidery.

Anonymous asked: what is yhe smallest bird of prey
The title of smallest bird of prey is actually a tie.
The genus Microhierax is a whole group of falconets - teeny tiny falcons. The smallest two of those are the Black-Thighed Falconet and the White-Fronted Falconet. Both are Indomalaysian species with a wingspan of 11.5 inches (27-32cm) and a body length of 6 inches (14-17cm). That’s right - they are only a bit larger than a sparrow! Though their big, powerful little talons and hooked beak certainly sets them apart.

Thanks for the question!
