Commercial Break: Seventies Style Orgy – “Baba Yaga” (1973)

Baba Yaga 1973- The Eye Wonders Baba Yaga 1973- shot through the heart and youre too late - vintage fashion film inspiration Baba Yaga 1973- illustrated title

Perhaps its the fashion photographer protagonist . . . or maybe the sexy 1970s set decor; most definitely attribute the funky score by Piero Umiliani (you know him – “Mah Nà Mah Nà”), as well as the brilliant presence of film legend, Carroll Baker (“The Watcher in the Woods“, “Babydoll“), and those quirky illustrations that appear, throughout the film – “Baba Yaga” is a bit of a shit show, but a wonderfully unique and stylish one, at that.

I thought Daily Grindhouse summed it up best:

Carroll Baker (BABY DOLL, THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS) is the titular stranger who is all sexed up with hunger for some female flesh. Baba Yaga sets her sights on fashion photographer Valentina Rosselli (Isabelle De Funes) after a chance encounter and soon pays a visit to her humble abode to deliver a doll dressed in some S&M gear for “protection”. After the visit, Valentina’s life is turned upside down; she is suddenly surrounded by death, hallucinations, Nazis (?), and more naked women than a Las Vegas casino. Of the four I prefer the naked women… just sayin’.

It’s these bizarre, unusual, and unexpected (perhaps, even absurd) elements that make a cult classic like this one to remember! You can totally read this film (even just the trailer) for clues on seventies style, and how timeless one can really make it. Love the stripes, the furs, the bobs, the rings . . . love it all! Even the menswear is pretty sublime.

Did I mention there’s witches? You probably gathered, by now. After all – “Baba Yaga” literally translates to Devil Witch! So, sit back and enjoy the sumptuous feast of the best vintage, stylish,erotic, exploitation, sleaze in three and half minutes you’re bound to find on the internet!

Enjoy the pictures, too.

They really capture the little moments that make this one worth remembering.

The Crazy Egyptian Statue That Can’t Stop Dancing!

The rotating statue

[SOURCE: The Laughing Squid]

Have you heard yet about the rotating statue at the Manchester Museum, in Northern England?

This tiny 3,800 year old guy has been turning heads, as many people allege the simple stone statue to be possessed by a mummy’s curse as video footage shockingly reveals the statue had been moving in a rotation over the course of a day, baffling curators, employees, and experts, alike.

Apparently the supernatural behaviour has been debunked and is believed to be caused by the vibrations of the many visitors throughout the day causing the wobbly base of the statue to move and thus rotate.

Question is, why hasn’t this feature been noticed before by anyone? After all, the museum claims the statue had been sitting behind class for 80 years, and it was not until this year that any unusual behaviour had been spotted. Or what about all the other statues in the cabinet?

That’s 2013 for you, I guess.

What do you think?

Happy Birthday Howard Carter! (9 May 1874 – 2 March 1939)

Howard Carter was born in London, England, the son of Samuel Carter, a skilled artist, who trained him to follow in his footsteps, and Martha Joyce (Sands) Carter.  Born eager and inquisitive, at 17, the young talented artist was sent out by the Egypt Exploration Fund to assist Percy Newberry in the excavation and recording of Middle Kingdom tombs at Beni Hasan.  Even at that young age he was innovative in improving the methods of copying tomb decoration.

On 4 November 1922, Carter’s excavation group found the steps leading to Tutankhamun‘s tomb ,  by far the best preserved and most intact pharaonic tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings.

Carter made the “tiny breach in the top left hand corner” of the doorway, and was able to peer in by the light of a candle and see that many of the gold and ebony treasures were still in place. He made the breach into the tomb with a chisel his grandmother had given him for his seventeenth birthday. He did not yet know at that point whether it was “a tomb or merely a cache”, but he did see a promising sealed doorway between two sentinel statues. When Carnarvon asked “can you see anything?”, Carter replied with the famous words: “Yes, wonderful things.”
