MASTER OF THE PLAYING CARDS


Master of the Playing Cards

The Master of the Playing Cards lived in Germany in the mid-1400s and is today recognized as the first great printmaking expert. Unusually, he was likely an artist as well as an engraver, and he possessed a distinctive artistic style. Attempts to identify him have failed. He is noted for a set of playing cards that feature finely detailed, realistic illustrations. The cards are organized into five suits, which differ entirely from the four suits used in playing cards today. What were they? More… Discuss

Regina Spektor – Ballad of a Politician/Lovable Dictator live at Other Music, NYC [02/09]


 

This post is dedicated to the most costly, and worthless fight for power over the war on American society, and to the next lovable dictator!: In short Elections 2012 _ “You can’t fool billion of people all the time!”

A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens
Our carefully laid plans

Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make it big

You love so deep, so tender
Your people and your land
You love ’em ’till they can’t recall
Who they are again

Work it, work it baby
Work your way ’round that room
You’re gonna make it big some day
You’re gonna make a boom

But I am
But I am
But I am not a number, not a name

But I am
But I am
But I am a carefully laid plan

Shake what your mama gave you
You know that it won’t last
You’re gonna taste the ground real soon
You’re gonna taste the grass

A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens
Our world under command

Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make us weak

You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make it big
