MoMA’s lobby is a site of perpetual flux and frenzy, a public passageway for people to meet, greet, rest, or chat before embarking on their next experience, either inside or outside the Museum’s walls. When asked by Ann Temkin, The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, to think of forms that would visually complement and invigorate the rectangular and column-filled lobby space, Paula Hayes, a New York-based sculptor and landscape designer, who enjoys “knocking something off kilter a bit,” was ready to take up the challenge.

Chewbacca = Accidental Bear

by Accidental Bear

Chewie in all is hairy glory MUST be responsible for some gay boys being drawn to hairy faces, arms and backs, right?  If Chewie walked in San Franciscos Lone Star Bar South of Market, I am sure he would share a cigar with gents on back deck, eat some peanuts and possibly get a hummer in the john. LONG LIVE CHEWIE.

Thanks to

Wookieepedia

Chewbacca (or “Chewie“, as he was known by his friends) was a legendary Wookiee from Kashyyyk and co-pilot of Han Solo‘s ship, the Millennium Falcon. He was the son of Attichitcuk, the husband ofMallatobuck, and the father of Lumpawaroo. Chewbacca carried with him the name of an ancient Wookiee hero, the great Bacca, first of the great chieftains of Kashyyyk, and the creator of a sword that denoted leadership among the Wookiees. This name placed Chewbacca in a noble lineage, which was further supported by his role in the Battle of Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars and during theGalactic Civil War.

Chewbacca was a wise, sophisticated being of great strength and loyalty. As technologically savvy as the brightest Academy graduate, he was also a skilled mechanic. Chewbacca, like many Wookiees, was able to understand Basic, but he could not speak it due to his species‘s vocal structure. He instead spoke Shyriiwook, the main Wookiee language, composed largely of growls and grunts, to his non-Wookiee companions who typically replied in Basic.

He later died during the Yuuzhan Vong War.

by Accidental Bear

Shit, my mother most of been way ahead of her time. Growing up with 4 brothers, daily one of us were on the brink of choking to death. My mother with a Kool cigarette hanging from her lip and a can beer in one hand would use her free hand to swoop the choking brother up by his feet and shake him upside down until whatever was lodged into our throat came free. Thanks mom, I credit you for my love of yoga. Who knew?

Baby-Swinging Yoga Is Real: Meet the Children Who Survived It

Lena Fokina, the hardbodied Russian viral video star seen swinging babies here andhereis real. She teaches baby yoga for a living and raised two (seemingly) healthy daughters that way. And she just gave her first American interview!

Lena has a website where she advertises herself as a childrearing expert based in Dahab, Egypt. We tracked her down through her Russian booking agent, but were unable to interview her because of the language barrier. Enter Nathan Thornburgh: He’s a daddy blogger and who writes about Russia for Time magazine. He interviewedLena in her native Russian, and got her to explain her “extreme developmental gymnastics” techniques.

Baby-Swinging Yoga Is Real: Meet the Children Who Survived ItI’ve never heard of anything like this Baby Yoga. Is this traditional or did you invent it?

Life invented it; it was conveyed to us by the teacher and author of all these ideas, Igor Borisovich Charkovsky. […] Over the last 30 years, Charkovsky’s system has lived in Russia and has spread from there. Not everyone accepts it.

The first thing everybody here thought when they saw your baby-swinging video was “Holy shit!” Then they thought, is it real or fake? So: Is it real? If so, who is the baby?

The child was born in the Black Sea region. Her name is Platona, and she was two weeks old when we took that video. We have a lot of children like her here. They are early readers, singers, talkers, swimmers. You haven’t seen anything like it anywhere!! And there’s swimming with dolphins, scuba diving with them… Come to Dahab!

New Hospital Visitation Rules in Effect

by Accidental Bear

One step forward for gay kind, one leap forward for man kind!

By Advocate.com Editors

HOSPITAL VISIT RULE X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM

New federal regulations that prohibit hospitals from discriminating against visitors based on sexual orientation and gender identity take effect today.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, “These new regulations require all hospitals participating in Medicaid and Medicare programs – virtually every hospital in the country – to permit patients to designate visitors of their choosing and prohibit discrimination in visitation based on a number of factors, including sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Last year, President Barack Obama announced the regulations in response to the tragic story of Janice Langbehn and Lisa Pond of Florida. The couple was kept apart while Lisa died at a Miami hospital.
