Inspiration! Roundup: Ikea relationship repair, defying gravity, suffering, and stained glass cabins

This week's "I want to go to there":
I'm still feeling the jet lag, so bed is my wish.

Relationship Saving Station

This Relationship Saving Station that comedian Jeff Wysaski set up in his local Ikea is hilarious and awesome.

Defying Gravity

This Israeli acrodancing couple blows my mind. That move where he's standing on her shoulders and they fall backwards? YEGADS!


Firsthand Accounts of Katrina

Artist Dapper Bruce Lafitte has an exhibit currently out called Kingpin of the Antpin that includes some beautiful and moving drawings depicting his firsthand experience with Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. If you're not in New York (I'm not!) then check it out on Fierman Gallery's website here.
