{MUSIC MINUTE} “I’d Rather Be Burned As A Witch” by Eartha Kitt

 

1

witch

noun \ ˈwich \
1: one that is credited with usually malignant supernatural powers; especially : a woman practicing usually black witchcraft often with the aid of a devil or familiar : sorceress — compare warlock
2 : an ugly old woman : hag
3 : a charming or alluring girl or woman
4 : an adherent of Wicca

The word witch derives from the Old English nouns wicca Old English pronunciation: [ˈwɪttʃɑ] (‘sorcerer, male witch’) and wicce Old English pronunciation: [ˈwɪttʃe] (‘sorceress, female witch’). Thanks Wikipedia!

 

The origins, really, are much more complicated and mysterious, of course. For many centuries this term was used a blanket term for outsiders in society; people who didn’t fit the mould of the status-quo. Outrageously, these free spirits were often burned at the stake!

HOW RUDE?!!!

Lord knows if these were different times, we’d be right on that stake with the best of them!

Eartha Kitt does a fabulous job of playing with the stereotype and society’s perceived notions in this song, and especially give it up to bosslady1971 for a wicked compilation of witches in popular culture to go along with what is sure to be one of the highlights of your playlist!

Do Enjoy!

 

I’d rather be burned as a Witch than never be burned at all!!!

Friendly Update from Yours Truly {theEye} . . . Happy Holidays, and Thanks for a Sweet Year!!!

Bruce Lee in 1970s Black and White Floral Graphic Shirt- Vintage Mens Inspiration- Th Eye of Faith Blog

As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little tardy on updating the blog.

Not to worry, we are still very much present . . . buzzing around in the background; making strides everyday we survive this crazy world.

For the past, nearly two months now, we have been without a charger for our computer, which has made things quite “unique”, to say the least. Yes, we do have very kind friends who do let us borrow their’s when the time permits, but overall, we’ve been struggling to keep the battery alive to do as much as check our email, do a Facebook update or two, and regular maintenance on our Etsy shop.

All this has left little opportunity to do what we so love – what started it all – which is keep the site updated with awesome vintage inspiration! But fear not, we will tread on, and hopefully by the New Year we will be back to our consistent selves.

In the meantime, there are nearly a thousand posts from the {PAST} you can delve yourselves into by perusing the backlog, or use the sidebar on the left to discern your gaze to the many particular categories we have offered over the years. Our personal favourite, E.O.F. Style Idols & Divinities, is much recommended reading.

We have been doing a lot of cool stuff (like styling Charles Bradley and The Beaches for Hamilton’s Supercrawl), and creating epic fashions shows which we will update the site with in the coming weeks.

Overall, we can’t complain. Other than the time its taking for our charger to make it to us from China!!! What a pain . . .

But you know what? We’ll survive… After all, we’ve survived much worse.

So keep in touch! We’ll be around.

Hope you all have a Happy Holidays, and can’t wait to see your bright shining minds back again!

Until we meet again,
