Art - Two galleries from retronauts

I wasn't quite sure how to categorize this post, and I eventually settled on calling it art.
I recently stumbled onto a site called retronaut, which features thematic retro photo galleries.
Lots of interesting stuff there.

Here are some samples (click on the titles to get the whole enchilada) from two galleries I thought y'all might enjoy.

Video - Math humor

So I was watching this I said to myself "Hold on! That's Manny from Black books!"
I checked, and indeed it was Bill Bailey playing a caveman. ; j

Video - Yakfilms youtube channel (Dance videos)

Boing boinger Dean Putney posted a yakfilm video a few days ago, and that got me started...
Yakfilms is a youtube channel featuring urban dancing.

In their own words:
"YAK FILMS is an international production team whose work with urban dance began with the legendary TURF FEINZ crew from Oakland, CA, innovators of the TURF dancing style. Today the name YAK is synonymous with a unique style of street-based documentation of the global dance movement."

I had a lot of fun watching these videos... I hope you will too!
PS Their top5 dance vids for 2011 (just click on the next button on the bottom to skip the commentary vid and get to the dancing) is very much worth checking out, really tempted to gush about each one! : j
