Ring Around the Rosey, A Pocketful of Posies. Ashes, Ashes. We All Fall Down

  • I never expected the Gap logo to be such a lightning bolt of attention. Yes, it’s bad and yes it’s a popular brand, but to have captured the attention of the whole internet, even reaching meme levels wasn’t something I ever expected the grilled chicken of retail brands to achieve.
  • Usta be able to mail order some wild creatures!
  • A beak doctor costume was an ankle length overcoat and bird beak mask worn by a plague doctor to protect him from airborne diseases. The overcoat, as well as leggings, gloves, boots, and a hat, was made of waxed leather. Straps held the beak in front of the doctor’s nose. The mask had glass openings for the eyes and a curved beak. The beak led to the name “beak doctors.”It had two small nose holes and was a type of respirator against airborne germs. It was based on the miasma theory of disease. The beak held dried flowers (including roses and carnations), herbs (including mint), spices, camphor or a vinegar sponge. The robe was impregnated with similar fragrant items. Doctors believed the herbs would counter the “evil” smells of the plague and prevent them from becoming infected.
  • “The pain is usually caused by the decaying or decomposing of the skin while the person is still alive.”
  • “Nose-job is her middle-name, heh. *sigh*. But still, lovely tights.”
  • “A revolutionary style pioneered by the likes of Courtney Love and Kat Bjelland that focuses primarily on a contradictory aesthetic: childlike and slutlike.”
  • First, you approach a German sentry with your little pistol hidden in your coat pocket and, with Academy-award sincerity, ask him for a light for your cigarette (or the time the train leaves for Paris, or if he wants to buy some non-army-issue food or a perhaps half-hour with your “sister”). When he smiles and casts a nervous glance down the street to see where his Sergeant is at, you blow his brains out with your first and only shot, then take his rifle and ammunition. Your next few minutes are occupied with “getting out of Dodge,” for such critters generally go around in packs. After that (assuming you evade your late benefactor’s friends) you keep the rifle and hand your little pistol to a fellow Resistance fighter so they can go get their own rifle.”
