I could live here: Villa Santo Sospir - The house Jean Cocteau lived in

Villa Santo Sospir is Francine Weissweiller's villa in the South of France. Jean Cocteau used it for his two films in the sixties: 'La Villa Santo Sospir' and 'Testament of Orpheus'. And decided to stay there for 13 years.


Fiat 500 Ferves Ranger

I never heard of and never saw the Fiat 500 Ferves Ranger. It looks cute! Circa 600 were made between 1967 and 1971. 50 are still around.


Penis seat in the Mexico City Metro

A campaign in Mexico City. Part art project and part PSA, it's supposedly there to highlight the sexual harassment experienced by female passengers. A well-meant campaign but I doubt the effect.


Brew your own beer the Sumerian way

This is probably the oldest written recipe. How to brew Sumerian beer. It's supposed to be very strong and contains chunks of bread.

Someone reads Sumerian?

Business cards from the Chicago gangs

Did you know (you probably didn't) that the Chicago gangs had business cards back in the 1960s - 1990s? I didn't.

Well they did. If we can believe Brandon Johnson's book, Thee Almighty & Insane.

I love 'Masters in crime / Killers of slime'.

Cool! The Husqvarna 256 Thage service bike

*Husqvarna ... from Sweden (old Dutch Husqvarna sowing machine commercial)*

The Husqvarna 256 Thage Motorcycle is a modern take on a rare service bike from the sixties. Including a pair of ski's. It's beautiful. I would like to have one (without the ski's).


I don't remember how I got on this website ... but ... WTF?!

Nurseweb from Japan. Filled with hilarious nurse photo's. Free downloads.

Is it a shark? ... No, it's the Alpha Centauri Hydroplane

Wow! Very black, very agressive. "A fighter jet for the water". It wants to combine luxury and speed.


M.C. Escher - Adventures in perception

M.C. Escher (1898 - 1972) was “a Dutch graphic artist known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. These feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations.” (Wikipedia).

Recreating history

Very nice.

"Moments in history, whether bigger or more intimate, are often recreated in film. This produces something that is transcending, powerful and nevertheless, haunting.

Music: Mica Levi - Vanity"
