"I don’t want a specific haircut but can you do something that captures the dark yet kitschy essence of this show?"

biomorphosis:

Tapirs are primitive animals that have remained unchanged for millions of years. Fossils of tapir ancestors have been found on every continent except Antarctica. Closest relatives of tapirs are horses and rhinos.

Its nose and upper lip are combined into a flexible snout that the animal uses to reach and pull food into its mouth. Tapirs are nocturnal animals that like to spend a lot of time in the water. They can stay under the water for several minutes. In fact, when frightened, tapirs hide in the water and breathe with their snout poked above the surface like a snorkel!

"Ideology does not exist in the ‘world of ideas’ conceived as a ‘spiritual world.’ Ideology exists in institutions and the practices specific to them. We are even tempted to say, more precisely: ideology exists in apparatuses and the practices specific to them."

— Louis Althusser (via re-interpellated)

"The English bourgeoisie is charitable out of self-interest; it gives nothing outright, but regards its gifts as a business matter, makes a bargain with the poor, saying: “If I spend this much upon benevolent institutions, I thereby purchase the right not to be troubled any further,.."

detrea:

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

Dream Of Californication

The Rodarte sisters yet again celebrate their golden home-state with their Seventies-tinged Spring ‘15 collection. When I think the ultimate ’70s California girl one woman immediately comes to mind- Jane Fonda. The brassy Klute actress had a spunky, can-do attitude and style in spades. The spunky, fresh-faced beauty was incredibly politically active and physically active as well. The mother of the aerobics class, Fonda embodied the fabulous and fit, beach-bound-hippies of the West Coast in all of their tousled-hair, sun-kissed glory.

Desert Afternoon Delight

Ralph Lauren turned up the heat for his Spring ‘15 collection with a sensual mix of safari and silk in a neutral camouflage palette and pops of rich jewel-tones reminiscent of Saint Laurent’s sexy, Marrakech-inspired khaki-look that defined 70’s style.

I’ve killed the best.

"And so was developed a list of mothers’ multiple and pervasive failures, inadequacies, and sexual shortcomings, which were seen as driving their husbands into the beds of their five-year-olds. It is interesting to note that, in so doing, these professionals came up with a more male-demeaning analysis than anything ever devised by allegedly male-hating radical feminists. The underlying assumption here was that men as a class suffered from what can only be called moral insanity."
