So apparently some rich French guy was sitting around one day and wanted to sit in the middle of the desert and watch Dune with his friends. So he made a theater and then it turns out It was a really, really bad idea and not a single movie was shown there. The local’s in the middle of somewhere Egypt didn’t like the idea for some reason and sabotaged it. Now there’s a random theater in the middle of the desert and some day no one will know why.
Props to Blue Willow bookstore in Houston for this display.
Nika Danielska Designs by Kate Strucka for Factice Magazine #17Macabre in style and sharp in design, these fetish fashion designs by Nika Danielska feature skeletal cages that constrict and contort the body for the sake of fashion. Face masks, neck braces and shoulder spikes make up this daring collection, blurring the lines between pain and couture with their frightening demeanor. The spindly creations can be worn peeking out from underneath a jacket, or on top of a gorgeous gown, making eye-popping fashion. These intricately wrought pieces are lavish enough to be worn instead of other accessories and jewels, A look glamorously Gothic when paired with some sparkly baubles.
The Nika Danielska designs bring fetish fashion concepts to the forefront of dramatic style.

I put together a “cursed museum object” for my friend’s birthday, using stuff I had around my house… cicada shells, twigs and paper. Yes, I keep weird stuff around my house.
Well! This issue hasn’t reached SA yet.
Really? It’s from issue six, how many months behind are you guys?
World War II Aircraft Nose Art
Wow, those are all fantastic. (:
talking about Rosie The Riveter, fun fact: while the We Can Do It picture has become the most-well known depiction of her in modern times, it wasn’t really a famous image when it was made—in fact, it wasn’t even intended to be her
the most famous depiction of Rosie The Riveter during WWII was probably Norman Rockwell’s painting
note what she’s resting her foot on
Just a point of interest: Rockwell modeled this Rosie after Michelangelo’s depiction of Isaiah in the Sistine Chapel. Which is somewhat appropriate considering how all of Michelangelo’s women were modeled off of men.
sorry i just
don’t understand how anyone could prefer cats over dogs
cats are cute sure but they’re not dogs.
dogs no matter their temperament will always love you and like to be around you and will put up with you like you put up with them
a cat just lives there
What utter bullshit. Cats aren’t pack animals so they aren’t as demonstrative, but some of us don’t want or need an animal to be following us around all the time, staring and slavering and obsessing over our every movement, in order to feel loved by them.
This reminds me of H.P. Lovecraft’s essay on why cats are better than dogs. http://www.hplovecraft.com/writings/texts/essays/cd.aspx
What it boils down to is cats are better because they know the true darkness of the world, while dogs are naive fools. Not sure if he was being satirical here, but I’m amused all the same.
