SUPERMAX


Supermax

Supermax prisons provide long-term, segregated housing for the most dangerous criminals. An early supermax-style prison unit opened in Australia in 1975 but was shuttered after just two years due to human rights concerns. Since then, the supermax model has been adopted by many corrections systems around the globe despite continued criticism. “Unabomber” Theodore Kaczynski and 9-11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui are among the most infamous US supermax inmates. What is everyday life like for them? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: MODERN, SKIMPY BIKINI DEBUTED AT PARIS POOL FASHION SHOW (1946)


Modern, Skimpy Bikini Debuted at Paris Pool Fashion Show (1946)

Although women have worn bikini-like two-piece garments for centuries—mosaics from the 4th century depict women in such garb—the modern bikini was only introduced in 1946. Anticipating that his revealing swimwear design would have an explosive effect on fashion, French engineer Louis Réard named his skimpy suit after the Bikini atoll in the central Pacific, where US nuclear testing had just begun. However, he struggled to find a model to debut his G-string bikini. Who finally agreed to wear it? More…Discuss

Lucy Christiana, Lady Duff Gordon (1863)

A leading British fashion designer of the Edwardian era, Gordon made less restrictive clothing for women that she sold in her own “Lucile, Ltd.” shops in London, Paris, Chicago, and New York. To promote her wares, she organized tea times when models would parade around in her designs, a precursor of the modern fashion show. Gordon was a passenger on the Titanic and survived its sinking by boarding Lifeboat 1 with her husband. What did the tabloids allege about their escape from the ship? More… Discuss

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You’ve been a’messin’ where you shouldn’t ‘ve been a’messin’
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin’ when you oughta be a’changin’
What’s right is right but you ain’t been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep playing where you shouldn’t be playing
And you keep thinking that you’ll never get burnt (HAH)
Well, I’ve just found me a brand new box of matches (YEAH)
And what he knows you ain’t had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

[SPOKEN]

Are you ready, boots?
Start walkin’

Despair (poetic thought by George-B)


Scream of the world (poetic thought by George-B)

The world is made of noisy silence-
a silence all so worldly-
Within the wavy textured void-
the padded silence-
Resides the deafening-silent-

Scream of the world.

regina spektor – Long Brown Hair (Live)

Recorded: 15th October 2004, Housing Works

Lyrics:

She had long brown hair
All down her breast
Made me think about my future
Made me think about my past
She was so pretty
As pretty as can be
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”

Her skin was tight, her manner was free
She gave me that look that seemed to say:
“Hey you, look at me!”
Her smile was crooked and good
As she sucked her Capri
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon god
Why shouldn’t it be me?

Her body was free!

Don’t tell me what’s proper
Anyone can see
I wasn’t even her first, so don’t blame it on me
She was so pretty, as pretty as can be
And I thought: 
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”

Oh c’mon, just this once, lord!
Why shouldn’t it be me?

Her body was free!

You know what the bible says?
I’ll tell you what it says
It says:
“Don’t put a stumbling block in front of someone who can’t see
Don’t put a beautiful body in front of someone who’s hungry,”

She was so pretty
As pretty as can be
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”

C’mon lord, why shouldn’t it be me?

HAN CHINESE CLOTHING


Han Chinese Clothing

The traditional clothing of the Han Chinese people, also known ashanfu, is no longer used as everyday garb in China, but it is worn at festivals, special occasions, and cultural events. There is also a movement to revive hanfu for daily wear, in replacement of Western styles. Hanfu outfits typically consist of diagonally wrapped robes and may include several layers. How did formal hanfu garments differ for ordinary citizens, government officials, and royalty? More… Discuss


Wear our Han cloth, recover our true Chinese culture – Han culture.
This video explained in the modern time, Chinese young people remembered their own cultures, this culture is original Chinese culture, and it has been forgotten by Chinese for more than 300 years after the Mancu Qing Dynasty. (Manchu Qing Dynasty is not Chinese)
In Qing Dynasty Manchu forbit Chinese to wear their own cloth – Han cloth.
Called 剃发易服,不从者斩.—- “Chang your cloth and cut your hair, otherwise kill them “
Now, in our generation, we find back our tradition dress — Hanfu, and Han-Tang cultures.
