Photographer Makes a ‘Socially Distanced’ Valentine’s Shoot With a Few Plot Twists

If you don’t have a pic like this, are you even a couple?

According to Alexa Machado: “We didn’t let social distancing stop us from a special Valentine’s Day couple’s photoshoot!

Thanks to the pandemic, I’ve been feeling touch-starved, so I got a little creative and came up with the perfect solution! All is fun and games… until two suitors show up!

The story: One day, you meet someone online who isn’t scared of your whack ideas; the next minute, you’re in a park meeting for the first time while tucking pool noodles in your shirts and flailing them around like you’re the tube man outside a car dealership.

And to top it off, you find out you live only like 7 minutes apart, and his work is right down the street from the second property you stay at in another town.”

Gazing lovingly into his eyes as his detached hand feels up my leg

He tried to mask his feelings for me, alas to no avail

Running towards him in full elbow boob glory

His demonic shadow poetically reflects his true nature… however, I’m so in love that I find enjoyment in collecting his red flags

Nothing says effort like surprising your lover with cheap drugstore chocolates you bought at the checkout as an afterthought

He only bought them because they were on sale, but I’m too deep in denial not to be ecstatic

Enjoying face cuddles and praying I don’t have a latex allergy

We’re a beautiful rectangular noodle couple

Holding hands trying to look like I don’t regret wearing a dress that keeps sliding higher and higher up my thighs with no means to fix a potential wardrobe malfunction because although these arms are sexy as heck, they are not very functional

Uh oh, what’s that over yonder?

Another suitor?

I may or may not have invited them both to this shoot with the expectation that neither would show up. Oops

Boys, boys, boys. No need to fight

Suitor #2 makes a move while a group of onlookers contemplate contacting a psychiatric hospital

Uh oh

I already thought I was enlightened, but this is taking detachment to a whole new level

Brandishing his new gorgeous set of arms (I may be biased), Suitor #2 prepares to battle to the death for my love. You know, like Twilight, except instead of vampires and werewolves, it’s a nerd and another nerd

Delivering the fatal blow (Also, check out that bicep)

It’s a one-hit wonder

Suitor #2 lands a surprising victory

Stealing Suitor #1’s arms while suitor #2 lays my supportive hands on my shoulder

Walking straight into the hill, err, I mean, sunset with my new love

Weird Russian Architecture Comes Into Bizarre Fashion

Voronezh, nuclear plant

Moscow photographer Lana Sator visualizes down coats inspired by all those Russian nuclear plants, abandoned houses and panel buildings. The similar idea had come to the designer of Louis Vuiton in January 2021 who presented the man’s architectural collection.

“The creative director of the Loius Vuitton men’s line, Virgil Abloh, created down jackets with three-dimensional architectural landmarks of Paris for the new men’s collection (example from the catalog on slide 10) – but what if he was inspired not by Paris, but by Russian cities?”

These Humorous Stinker Station Signs Helped to Provide Comic Relief for Motorists in Idaho During the 1950s and ’60s

When traveling to distant places, it is well to remember where you come from. If you come from Idaho, chances are you are familiar with the Stinker gas stations, which used to put up gag signs along the roads. Those bright yellow Stinker Station signs all with black print truly were an “Idaho only” institution. The Stinker gas stations used to break the monotony of traveling through southern Idaho’s miles of sagebrush with their comic signs.

h/t: vintag.es

Farris Lind was the genius behind Idaho’s iconic yellow road signs of the 1950s and 1960s. The signs were not only witty but captured nationwide attention.

After returning WWII, Lind had to figure out a way to compete with cut-throat Boise competition and he made his 16th and Front Boise service station world famous. He did it by scattering the yellow signs all over southern Idaho to wake up drivers bored with countless miles of sagebrush. One side advertised his 33-station Stinker Station empire, while the other side offered witty humor.

The most famous sign was near a field of lava rock, “Petrified watermelon. Take one home to your mother-in-law.” Lind got into the sign business by accident. In 1946, with the war behind him, he tried to buy exterior plywood to advertise his service station, but only interior plywood was available. That meant both sides had to be painted to preserve the wood. According to the Idaho Statesman, he was quoted saying, “As long as the backside of the sign was painted, I got the idea of putting humor or curiosity catching remarks on the back side”. One of the best signs is still standing outside of Idaho Falls. It says, “Warning to tourists: Do not laugh at the natives.”

As the signs increase you began to see the Stinker skunk on the edge of the sign. Then quickly the messages become a billboard advertising Stinker Cut-Rate Gas Station in Boise. The tourist was intrigued and compelled to come to the station for gasoline or, at the very least, an explanation of the advertising.

The signs became a sensation. Stinker Stations became the go-to fuel place in Boise and the surrounding area in Treasure Valley. Word about the signs began to spread as tourists brought their stories and pictures back with them. National newspapers (many used here) gave more attention to the signs. Lind was a hit. He expanded his empire to over 50 stores and business was stronger than ever. However, the same could not be said for Ferris Lind. Lind was diagnosed with polio in the 1950s and was bed-ridden for the majority of his life. He finally succumbed in 1983. The Lind family sold the business in 2002.

The roadside signs are a different story. While a few remain, many were removed in 1965 when President Lyndon Johnson signed the highway beautification act. The act banned most commercial signs from rural highways and the Stinker landmarks were quietly removed. Stinker gas stations are still a staple of the region and employ more than 700 people. The skunk is still their mascot, a fitting tribute to the original stinker, Fearless Farris Lind.

This Artist Can Sneak Her Cats Into Any Painting And It’s Hilarious

Few would argue if we said that pets are an endless source of joy and happiness in our lives. Therefore, there is no surprise people are trying to immortalize them in every way possible.

This Aussie painter, Vanessa Stockard, found the best way to do that by sneaking her three adorable cats, Kevin The Kittin, his mom Fluff Ferstenberg and the head of the adorable fluff family, Satan, into her paintings.

Stockard’s process includes pieces developed without visual reference but rather from memory. These narratives incorporate domestic pets such as cats and dogs, juxtaposing the anthropomorphic nature of these animals are given by society, she infuses the personification of virtue and vice into the everyday canine and feline status quo.

Cats with their fluffy comical exteriors yet instinctual urge to kill and a tendency to be cruel to their prey, dogs with their providence of happiness and friendship flung back to Churchill’s metaphor for depression. Despite this not-so -cheerful description of her works, Stockard manages to make her art somehow quirky and very enjoyable!
