  • Xallxsewnxupx

    super sick. what is the song? 

  • I longboard myself, and I’ve seen loads of vids of boarding of all sort…but never in my world could I imagine anything like this! The easiness in his movements, and the 0% failure is so intense.. Not to talk about the movie itself, that was just super.

    the song is:

  • Jesse Weinberg

    So Fresh!

  • TOASTRANDER

    So well done!

  • anyone noticed he changed his shirt two times? :) I wish he didn’t tough, but that is pretty much the only thing I do not find utterly amazing. really beautiful work, I like the song and the whole thing!

    • eke

      yes, shirt-switching IMO spoils flow of movie, but this (skating) is gorgeous anyway

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
