The Women of Asgarda | In the Ukraine, a country where females are victims of sexual trafficking and gender oppression, a new tribe of empowered women is emerging. Calling themselves the “Asgarda”, the women seek complete autonomy from men. Residing in the Carpathian Mountains, the tribe is comprised of 150 women of varying ages, primarily students, led by 30 year-old Katerina Tarnouska. Reviving the tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology, the Asgarda train in martial arts, taught by former Soviet karate master, Volodymyr Stepanovytch, and learn life skills and sciences in order to become ideal women.
This is amazing. Every woman/girl should learn a martial art.

“L’invitation au voyagee” by Duparc. This is maybe the most evocative art song of all time, perfectly capturing the essence of Baudelaire’s poem. Duparc, having destroyed most of his work before he died, left us with such a small number of songs…but each one is a gem (with this as the crown jewel?)! Jonas Kaufmann has a voice that all at once baffles and delights me, and he sings this song beautifully (and his French is wonderful!)

The study walks the reader through the fascinating field of death awareness, which measures how people respond to reminders of death, like a news clip about a deadly car crash. When and how, he asked, does the prospect of death become relevant to employees at work? Grant argued that when people’s reactions to reminders of death are “hot” — anxious and panicked — those workers tend to withdraw. But when they are “cool” — more reflective, as in response to chronic reminders, the kinds, for example, firefighters face — those workers would be more likely to “reflect on the meaning of life and their potential contributions.
Insights from social psychologist Adam Grant’s lab. Complement with the mortality paradox, cultural icons on the meaning of life, and Tolstoy’s timeless reflection on the subject at the end of his own life. (via explore-blog)

selling the very last of my BUCK-TICK items,including the very rare JUPITER music box ! This is #331 of 1000, ca 1992. It is still in its original box, and can be seen/heard in the above video. The song features the last two lines of the chorus from Sakurai’s heartbreakingly beautiful requiem for his mother, music by Hide.
Also auctioning other goth/B-T items, including vintage Sisters of Mercy tshirts, Sakurai Atsushi solo live goods, old jrock magazines, B-T shirts, fanclub items, and more. There’s also the 2005 SNOB art/fashion/music mag with the Acchan cover and features on Etsuko Miura’s surreal ball joint sculptures/dolls, bjork, and other luminaries styled and photographed by iconic Japanese fashion artists.
