That ticket guy always looks so proud of himself, you almost feel bad that Frosty can’t afford the ticket.
Also, who doesn’t love old man Jimmy Durante?!?!
This is literally my favorite thing ever
STILL IN TEARS
Well that was unexpected.
I will never not reblog this
Classical pianist and YouTube sensation Yuja Wang is making her Celebrity Series of Boston debut on Friday night, and there is some debate in the classical world about whether or not the dresses she wears make for proper attire.
What do you think? Should it matter what a classical pianist wears while performing?
Plays Sergei Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3, aka Rach 3, one of the most difficult songs to play in the world, the notes on the sheet music is described as being so dense it looks like a phonebook.
World shits itself because of what she’s wearing.
The world would rip a woman to shreds over her socks before daring to acknowledge her accomplishments.

Back in high school, I was looking up Victorian etiquette for a project, and I stumbled upon this game on a Canadian museum website. You pick a gender and then go through little scenarios where you’re quizzed on the proper Victorian way to act.

GO PLAY IT.
YOU DIDN’T MENTION THE VOICES, OH LORD. IT’S LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN MONTY PYTHON ANIMATION AND WONDERMARK, COMPLETELY ON
CRACK OPIUM WHILE STILL UNFAILINGLY COURTEOUS.
I KEEP LAUGHING UPROARIOUSLY AT MY SCREEN. THIS IS A RIDICULOUS DELIGHT.
This is amazing, oh my god.
I know some people who need to see this.
I will absolutely be playing this.
