Gene Krupa. Drumming legend and also HOT.
The marvellous Moon Booth was at the Anachronism steampunk and cosplay convention today too. Retro-futurism encapsulated.

Best jam session in history? Rosetta Tharpe, Duke Ellington, Rex Stewart, Cab Calloway, Ivie Anderson and guest at a party in 1939 photographed by Charles Peterson.
Portraits of 1920s Broadway showgirls by photographer John De Mirjian. Amazing what you can do with a few lengths of material and a good eye. Thanks Valentino Vamp for the introduction!
Edmund Kesting, avant-garde German photographer, printmaker and painter who became well-known in the 1920s and ’30s for his experimental photomontages. Much of his work was removed from museums during the late 1930s by the Nazi regime who deemed it ‘entartet’ (‘degenerate’). (via hoodoothatvoodoo)
Gig tonight with Damma Goto Helltas, a vintage jazz-inspired dance performance trio featuring myself, Amber le Fay and Bettina Spankenhaus, at a charity gala event in a swanky mansion. Better get pincurling!
The marvellous constancepeach writes: Recently I had the pleasure of modelling for new Vintage inspired clothing brand Tar & Roses. The 1920’s/30’s styles were inspired, and practical. I really have fallen in love with the brand and own the beautiful pyjama suit! The day was incredible. I worked with the amazing Laura Jayne Vest Photography and Evil Twin Creative Hair and Makeup
