STYLE IN SEVILLE →
Estilos de mi ciudad favorita! Yo siempre he dicho que los sevillanos son la gente más de moda en Europa. Echo de menos Sevilla mucho. ….y deseo que mi español era mejor. Ay.
The band that wrote and performed the soundtrack for one of my favorite films, Aguirre, The Wrath of God, was named Popol Vuh, after the colonial-era mythological history of the K’iche’ kingdom in modern Guatemala. I am really happy about this.
The collection of PDF format documents was roughly the length Leo Tolstoy’s War...– Twenty-Something Asks Facebook For His File and Gets It. They have a record of everything you’ve done on the site. Every message. Every poke. Everything you’ve ever liked. Every time you’ve logged in. Every interaction. Everything. (via nedhepburn)
Haredi body snatchers! →
“A few years ago, there was a man lying dead in his bed, a Charedi [ultra-Orthodox], and the police came. They wanted to take the body for an autopsy, and everybody was inside the apartment trying to stop them, and there was a crowd outside, and somebody distracted the police, and a few of us grabbed the body, wrapped in it in the sheet, and ran outside,” says Greuss, a member of Neturei...
Oh, swish. A 1930s film reel shows us what they thought fashion would look like in the year 2000. Good call on the heel-less heels, sheer fabric, and portable telephone. I wish the part about men carrying around “candy for cuties” in little saddlebags had come true. Men never give me candy.
MY FRIEND'S FLIGHT
Sat next to the most liberal Vietnam vet I have ever met. After showing me pictures of the F4 Phantom he flew, he said, “I wanted to be a cultural anthropologist. I did conferences and had connections to apply to Berkeley. Those bastards sent me to blow up grass huts and pathetic fishing villages. Now I live in New Hampshire…”

ludmirermoyd: strastnayagirl: I can’t even. Yeah. The official decree was given at the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215, convoked by Pope Innocent III. Here’s an excerpt from Canon 68, the source of this particular law: Contingit interdum quod per errorem christiani Judæorum seu Saracenorum et… Fun fact: in some parts of medieval Europe, prostitutes were forced to wear a...
FREAKS AND GEEKS
Lately my Facebook friend-request box has become a hotbed of sad, bitter male nerds, often ones that I have one or zero mutual friends with. I have no idea why, my Facebook is on extreme privacy-settings lockdown, I never post on public pages and rarely on friends’, and, as you all know, I am a very cool person in general. I always accept the request, because frankly I find nerd social...
EYE OF THE TIGER
Found out today I’m going to need eye surgery in a couple weeks to clear up some major retinal pressure. Although I was initially frightened at the prospect of eye surgery, the doctor walked me through the entire procedure and showed me exactly what to expect before, during, and after, making me feel much more secure. I came to realize that this surgery will be minor and essentially...

In the dark days before MMMHop was announced, I often wondered what I was fighting for. What life was all about. What cosmic reward I toiled unceasingly for in the face of unrelenting monotony and misery. I wonder no longer.
