{STYLE WISE} This is no Mirror, a Twin is Here.

Turns out two is always better than one, we’ve recently discovered that theres a serious upside when you get double for the money.  No matter the bargain, or the price, we can find luxury in abundance.

Traveling the world, discovering the new and exotic, there’s so much to fathom, we aren’t sure if we could handle it all all by our lonesome.

 Two Eyes are indeed better than one.

We wouldn’t be bias, and select only the femme fetale who walk on the wild side, oh no no.  We have seen many people, far and wide, far and few between when it comes to quality.  We have found men and women all different but with something the same;  A twin.  Arguably stylish, but always in style, we’ve found double trouble when it comes to cool.  Enjoy this share of photos that are all equally timeless.

 

Sincerely,

Hexing Hitler: That Voodoo That You Do Makes Me Want To Cry…

Let’s face it – the world we live in now, and the world seventy one years ago were two very different places. While some of the biggest box-office smash include the CG comic-book action explosion, The Avengers, top grossing films of 1942 included I Married a Witch, Road to Morocco, and the year’s highest grossing epic, Mrs. Miniver.

On top of that, the world was completely engulfed by the horrors and tragedies of WAR. 1942 was a year, when the best was yet to come, and undoubted pressures and insecurities were running mad like devils (this not being too different than our current social climate), and no doubt there were those who were foreseeing THE END.

Luckily, THE END has yet to be seen in terms of whether or not we are physically standing on this Earth today – this I can confidently attest to. Luckily for us, the horrors of such a war are far behind us. But let us not forget the times where we weren’t so sure.

“On the wet windy evening of January 22, a youthful band of idealists went to a lonely cabin in the Maryland woods.”

These pictures were taken 70 years ago, as well. The year is 1942 and we, The Eye of Faith, have taken a journey South to the backwoods of Maryland where “On the wet windy evening of January 22, a youthful band of idealists went to a lonely cabin in the Maryland woods.”

These previously unpublished photographs taken by LIFE Magazine photographer Thomas McAvoy amazingly capture the drama of a “hexing party” organized “to kill Adolf Hitler by voodoo incantation.” in definitely one of LIFE’s weirdest and most wonderful pieces of history ever untold. It would be three more years until Hitler would go down by his own hand, but such a powerful force of evil could have used a few more helping hands.

“a dressmaker’s dummy, a Nazi uniform, nails, axes, tom-toms and plenty of Jamaica rum,” …sounds like the tagline for a damn good movie.

FREAKY FRIDAY: Vintage Ancient Aliens! William Shatner’s “Mysteries of the Gods” (1977)

William Shatner- Captain James Kirk

William Shatner is best known as Captain Kirk in the iconic 1960s sci-fi series (the original, tamer, Battlestar Gallactica), marking his first foray into the world of outer space, extra terrestrials, space ships, and other worldly beings. But in 1977, Shatner released a documentary that would have the Canadian star again looking to the stars, this time for answers.

Based on Erich Von Daniken’s best selling series (his feature film documentary “Chariot of the Gods” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1970), “Mysteries of the Gods” continued on the popular quest to discover from whence we came. It’s the original “Ancient Aliens“.

Did millions of years ago, visitors from other planets come to Earth and help accelerate our primitive ancestor’s genes to propel civilization as we know it today? Scientists often note how remarkable it is that human civilization went from cave dwelling hunter-gathers to suddenly building slick and sophisticated cultures with engineering that defies the capabilities of today’s most advanced technologies.

It definitely is disturbing to think that we live in a world where we still have not figured out how they moved the stones of the Pyramids?! How far behind are we? Or did ancient people have help from our astronaut ancestors, or worse, giants that literally roamed the Earth?

If not, why do so many “primitive” cultures, even today, still tell legends of giant men who made us “normal” humans seem like crickets? Now I’m starting to sound a bit like Shatner, so instead I’ll simply live you with the video itself.

The documentary in its entirety has been uploaded to the web (thank you 21st Century), so you can ponder these questions, in all the 1970s New Age Psychedelia of William Shatner’s “Mysteries of the Gods“.

Don’t miss out on his brown suede shirt – boho chic.

Have a good weekend!

Until next time,
