“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best. ” -Frida Kahlo
Why she kicks ass:
- One of the most talented artists of the 20th century
- “Frida accomplished everything with disabilities and illness that cursed her entire life. While most people know about the train accident that resulted in over 35 surgeries and a lifetime of severe pain, Frida’s physical challenges actually started at age 6 when a polio infection left her right leg smaller than the left. It is also believed that she contracted spina bhifida as a child.”
- Openly bisexual

If Metallica and Lou Reed could make an album that was not very good, surely these two can do some sort of collaboration that will rock everyone’s faces off.

Photographer Stephan Brauchli popped these Yorkshire terriers into socks to get a special ‘family’ shot of them. The pups were about to be given away as pets and their owner wanted one last shot of them together. The youngsters were so lively that Stephan had to get the whole shoot done in two minutes flat.
