A collection of 1920’s photographs, depicting some of the hairstyles of the time, like the kiss curl, the orchid bob, the charleston cut, coconut bob, earphones hairstyle, cottage loaf (bun) and popular styles you’ll probably never see in a period drama like extreme windblown style, the frizzy hairstyle and the Poodle cut.
can’t wait for the release of jurassic park 4D where they just let dinosaurs loose in the theater and you have to try to survive for 2 hours
Yeah, funny, but 3D is already (the illusion of) 3D, as we all already are. Real 3D would would be the dinosaurs. They are also already 4D — if you think the 4th dimension as time, the way some people do, as, we do already actually move along in time.
Sorry I am a miserable pedant, but these sort of misunderstandings drive me nutso.
ca. 1855-95, [carte de visite portrait of a young girl with a steroscope], Edward Abraham Kusel
Left out the part where the country was founded by Christian fundamentalists who invaded, colonized and built their empire while persecuting the native population for failing to embrace their indoctrination, sending them on death marches to their so-called reservations. This is a country with great potential and we have accomplished some pretty okay things but we should stop pretending it’s history has been so clean, altruistic and glorious. And that there aren’t a whole lot of things we couldn’t be doing better.
Yet another massacre has occurred in the historically war-torn region of the Southern United States – and so soon after the religious festival of Easter.
Brian McConkey, 27, a Christian fundamentalist militiaman living in the formerly occupied territory of Alabama, gunned down three men from an opposing tribe in the village square near Mobile, the capitol, over a discussion that may have involved the rituals of the local football cult. In this region full of heavily-armed local warlords and radical Christian clerics, gun violence is part of the life of many.
Many of the militiamen here are ethnic Scots-Irish tribesmen, a famously indomitable mountain people who have killed civilized men – and each other – for centuries. It appears that the wars that started on the fields of Bannockburn and Sterling have come to America.
As the sun sets over the former Confederate States of America, one wonders – can peace ever come to this land?

Saffron gold silk dress, c. 1869, with organdy and lace edging, green and cream satin ribbons. The overskirt gathers up in to add emphasis to the back, a precursor to the bustle. This gown was worn by Frances Olmsted (later Mrs. Richard Maynard Marshall) when she attended the first St. Cecilia Ball held after the Civil War.
