'The Homosexuals' (1967)

""The Homosexuals" is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco.

Three years in the making, "The Homosexuals" went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews with several gay men, psychiatrists, legal experts and cultural critics, interspersed with footage of a gay bar and a police sex sting. "The Homosexuals" garnered mixed critical response. The network received praise from some quarters and criticism from others for even airing the program."

What Does Your Favorite Muppet Say About You?

What Does Your Favorite Muppet Say About You? Nice post.

My favorite Muppet is ofcourse Animal, always was, always has been, always will be ... Let's see what it tells about me:

"On the other side of the musical spectrum is Animal. Rowlf was a laidback humble musician with talent. Animal is a tornado of sounds. He rocks out and doesn't care if there are a million people listening or one... just as long as it's loud. If the most famous member of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem is your favorite Muppet then you might be a punk rocker. You definitely don't care about how the world sees you, you just care that it does."

The Average Font

Designer Moritz Resl has figured out the average font.

"September 2011

This project shows what a font would look like if it consisted of all typefaces installed on my system. Every character from a to z is drawn using every single font with a low opacity. In total there are over 900 typefaces in my library. I didn’t exclude the ugly ones."

Portrait Projecting Ring

"Working with local jeweller Tamrakar, this ring was created for the wedding of Luke Jerram and Shelina Nanji.

In a darkened room, light from a candle or LED passes through the ring to project a series of portraits. A selection of miniature slides were made of different family portraits and inserted into the edge of the ring for projection. As Jerram's family grows, photos of his children can be added to the ring. The ring was inspired by 19th Century Stanhopes."

Prada Spring Summer 2012

I simply adore this!!!

"The season’s assortment of below-the-knee skirts, twinsets, and long boxy jackets are pieces we’d expect to find in Miuccia Prada’s own wardrobe. With a distinct 50s Americana aesthetic, the classic feminine silhouettes are balanced with masculine hints—actual automobile prints on leather skirts, hot rod flames on chiffon skirts, and even fender-detailed heels."

“I wanted to make sweet acceptable, for sweet is a very bad word in fashion,” says the designer about the collection’s naughty and nice vintage direction."

Ground Zero 1945

"On 6 August 1945, the US government dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. This was the first wartime use of a nuclear weapon, and along with the bombing of Nagasaki three days later, heralded the surrender of Japan and the end of World War II. After the dust had settled, President Truman dispatched military personnel and civilians to photograph the destruction. Nearly seventy years later, Hiroshima: Ground Zero 1945 presents a selection of these once confidential images alongside critical texts. 1,100 photographs were taken, and 865 of them published in the classified report The Effects of the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima, Japan (1947). Today, 700 of these images are part of the permanent collection at the International Center of Photography. Hiroshima: Ground Zero 1945 is testament to this shameful, haunting episode of the twentieth century and the role of documentary photography within it, and is the latest phase in ICP's ongoing investigation of the unacknowledged histories of photography."
