Check out this excellent article on ballet pointe shoes over at The Atlantic. Suzanne Fischer notes an argument by Whitney Laemmli that the pointe shoe helped to make dancers' bodies more streamlined, and made the dancers themselves more like interchangeable machines. Also, people used to cook and eat the shoes of the dancers they were fans of? Well. There's that.

In other news, I keep singing the little soft version of this song in my head, over and over? Problematic/adorable! Plus now I've hooked Joey on this song. He can't get through the day without it!
