“That’s what you do up there … you dance love, and you dance joy, and you dance dreams! I know … if I can make you smile by jumping over a couple of couches or running through a rain storm … then I’ll be very glad to be a song and dance man, and won’t worry anymore that the Pittsburgh Pirates lost a helluva shortstop!”


Remembering Gene Kelly on his 105th birthday 🌹

A tribute to a great dancer, actor, director, producer and choreographer 🌟

Born on August 23, 1912 as Eugene Curran Kelly in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Died on February 2, 1996 in Beverly Hills/L.A., California

“I took it as it came, and it happened to be very nice.”

I picked ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ to pay tribute to Gene, because it will be my all-time favorite movie, and I love him so much in this masterpiece!!! Besides, it was the first time I ‘met’ this amazingly talented man … and my “Invitation to the Dance”!

Thank you Gene … for all the memorable, magical dancing you put on the screen or stage and for being such an inspiration! You will always brighten up my day! Love you ❤!

May the heavenly stage be set for your dance among the stars tonight … I know, it will be fantastic! 🌟


“I learned long ago that there is no shortcut to success. You have to work hard for what you get. And it must be planned work, based on a firm foundation of some natural talent or desire. That’s where I got lucky. I was born with a hankering to dance.”

“In the 1930s there was this tendency in Hollywood to portray everyone as rich. Even if they were doing a poor man’s dance, they were all so nicely clothed, gowned, coiffured. That’s why I decided to wear white socks, loafers, T-shirts, and blue jeans. I had a sociopolitical context in front of me: I was a child of the Depression who danced in a way that would represent the common man.“

“I wanted to invent some kind of American dance that was danced to the music that I grew up on: Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, and Irving Berlin. So I evolved a style that certainly didn’t catch on right away. But I had some good mentors in New York who encouraged me.”

Spoiling your girl doesn’t mean you need to constantly spend hundreds of dollars on her. It doesn’t mean you need to buy her the top of the line technology or clothes or concert tickets. It doesn’t mean you have to pay for fancy vacations for the two of you. Spoiling your girl can be as easy as picking flowers for her while you take a walk or leaving her a note about how much you adore her. It can be waking up a little early to make her breakfast in bed or rubbing her feet after she’s been at work all day. It can be spending a day watching her favorite movies or letting her pick all the songs during a car ride. Spoiling your girl doesn’t have to be with money but with love

get to know me (6/10} favorite films ☰ matilda (1996)

Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.

Holes (2003)

You, your children, and your children’s children will dig for the next 100 years,

                                                                                                                and you will never find it.

“I am Moana of Motunui. Aboard my boat, I will sail across the sea and restore the heart of Te Fiti.” -Moana (2016)

“I am Diana of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta. Your wrath upon this world is over.” -Wonder Woman (2017)

Female leads are so important.

I just want to take a moment and appreciate these two women in their movies. They are strong, courageous, defiant, and independent. When I first saw Moana, I cried about seven times. It was so refreshing to see a character that didn’t need to rely on anyone else to save the day besides themselves. And recently, when I watched Wonder Woman, I got emotional all over again because I noticed similar parallels between Diana and Moana. 

They both are introduced in their youth. Moana wants to be out on the ocean, and Diana wants to train to be an Amazon warrior. But they have their parents that set them on different paths. Moana’s parents want her to be the chief, and Hippolyta doesn’t want Diana to train so that she can be protected. Upon reaching older age, both Moana and Diana set out on journey’s that they know they must embark on. Diana leaves Themyscira with Steve to defeat Ares and end the raging world war. Moana leaves Motunui to find Maui and restore the heart of Te Fiti to save her people and her island. Both women are so determined to complete what they set out to do, and when it comes a time for them to do it on their own, they completely kick ass. Even when they are set back by obstacles, they keep pushing on. They both defeat a god, (respectively to each cultures mythology). And in the end, they both understand that love is what can save the world. Diana learned that in her endeavors, and it was love that Moana showed that restored Te Ka into Te Fiti.

There is so much to love about these two, and I could go on about how many parallels there are. I really adore and appreciate these strong female icons. Both movies are definitely my top favorites of all time.

Victor Nikiforov as Howl~

I was watching Howl’s moving castle for the hundredth time again this weekend and I couldn’t stop thinking about Victor when I saw Howl >w< so this happened when I realized how much I wanted to draw Vitya with long hair as well ♥ ゜・。。・
