Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.
“For New York's Fall Fashion Issue, photographer Bobby Doherty inserted items from the season’s runways into stills from iconic movies, from Belle du Jour to American Hustle. Click through the gallery ahead to see Cleopatra in Stella McCartney, Barbarella in Gucci, Marie Antoinette in Dior, and more.”
I worked really hard on this! Here is the whole slide show. Enjoy!

I have recently read about actress and mathematician Hedy Lamarr. You should too. Among her feats:
- The invention of the frequency-hopping spread spectrum, a means of transmitting radio signals which is the basis of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.
- Stealing a bunch of gold and diamond jewelry from her Nazi husband and and fleeing to Paris disguised as a French maid.
- Being the first actress to appear fully nude and depict an orgasm in a movie.
We should all learn about Hedy Lamarr in school.
I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
The non verbal just says it all.

Gustavo Silva Nuñez is an astonishingly talented artist from Valencia, Venezuela, who paints people in water with meticulous accuracy. He paints men and women in soothing and dreamy pools, tubs, and seas. His perfect mastery of shading and highlighting, as well as the water’s swirls, bubbles, and distortion, makes the paintings look incredibly real. The artist pushes the boundaries between reality and painting even further by interacting with his paintings and playfully posing as if the people he painted were really there beside him.
