Wild Moscow Twist, 1962

Scroll down for today's pictures & links.

Wild Moscow Twist, 1962

Not sure how this passed the communist censorship, but the world-famous Moiseyev Ballet in Moscow performed this dance not only during their trips to America in the 1960s but also at Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow in 1962. They did call it a "parody dance" in the official program - but they still have too much fun dancing it!

New Internet Sensation!

A huge hit on Pinterest and all over the interwebs, is this highly adorable miniature octopus:

(original unknown)

It first appeared sometime in May and now peaked in popularity. He even gained the top hat in the process:

Rare Rock Arch Formation in Massif de la Chartreuse, France

(image credit: David George)

And it seems it's been only discovered in 2005 (in modern history): "At the end of May 2005 Grenoble climber Pascal Sombardier was exploring the foot of the Grand Manti cliffs situated in the Chartreuse mountains between Grenoble and Chambery. He spied a couloir and decided to explore further... Turning to his right he had trouble believing what he saw: a giant double arch spanning some 32 meters. An expert on the region, he had never heard of this natural wonder."

See beautiful photography of this formation here and read some info here.

Hotel Blenheim: Majestic... Demolished...

Perhaps one the greatest losses in the history of American architecture:

Built in 1906 at Ohio Avenue & Boardwalk, Atlantic City, New Jersey... Designed by architect William Price. Incredibly original and unique structure. Demolished in 1979 and replaced with some ugly utilitarian structure.

Capacitron and Rectifier Tubes, c. 1948

The thin white streaks in this image are not lightnings... just paper creases. We thought to Photoshop them out, but they sort of add to the (electrified) atmosphere:

Radical Modern Architecture in Moscow

There is a great thread at SkyscraperCity forum showing the new and modern Moscow architecture - certainly worth a look!

Classic Moscow architecture still has lesser known gems to discover: this is the Tea House, the old Perlov's house on Myasnitskaya street.

Love that dance! They are doing the lindy hop, though, not the twist. ;)

In re the Capacitron and rectifier tubes, you need to find an image of a Farnsworth Multipactor in operation. :-)
