Music Minute: Krzysztof Komeda “Rosemary’s Baby Interlude”

Rosemarys-Baby-p01

Setting Up For Stan- Rosemary's Baby- Scream

“A chance to sit quietly and find out who you are; where you’ve been and where you’re going.”

-Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby

{published in 1967}

 

I called this an interlude because of its sauntering sweet nature between the high stakes and drama that is”Rosemary’s Baby”.

Polanski’s iconic film had many claiming he had beckoned the murder of his glamorous superstar wife, Sharon Tate just months following the film’s release, with this chilling tale of a wife sold to a coven of witches to give birth to the child of Satan!

The track is featured in a montage of Rosemary’s gleefully completing the contemporary turn-over of her new apartment (just before receiving a visit from her eccentric neighbour, Minnie).

The myth of the curse on the film was further perpetuated when John Lennon was murdered just outside the historic and now notorious Dakota building (below) just across the street from Central Park in New York City.

Girl, you really rock that tattered Victorian vibe . . .

Nobody does it quite like you.

If you haven’t seen this movie…such a shame.

Don’t forget; although, we got the 90s thing going on – “CASPER, THE FRIENDLY GHOST” is a certified vintage cartoon staple who first appeared in book form in 1939, and later became the beloved animated ghost we know today in 1945!!!

Vintage inspiration….it’s where it’s at! I said it before, and I’ll say it again.

Don’t underestimate the power of the {PAST}!

Manic Monday: Hysteric for Charcot’s Mysterious Medical Muses

Charcot - Frighteningly Real

Charcot {29 November 1825 – 16 August 1893}

Remembered today as a leading mind in the fields of neurology and psychology, Jean-Martin Charcot‘s legacy is as much in his strange medical photography, as his famous pupils (Sigmund Freud and Georges Gilles de la Tourette), and important breakthroughs in the field.

Taken for research purposes, these bizarre medical photographs were used to document the various affects and disorders of the 19th century’s most scandalous disorder – Female Hysteria.

For thousands of years, hysteria has plagued the medical community as a bit of a mystery. Known as “the wandering womb” by Hippocrates since the Ancient Greeks, the known method for treatment was almost always pregnancy until the 19th Century when a vaginal massage and/or stimulation using a vibrator or water hose administered by your family doctor was the modern approach.

Charcot, however, was interested in the minds of these plagued women, and hoped to use one of technology’s latest advancements, photography, to aid his research.

What resulted is a macabre collection of photographs that capture terrifying and strange lost moments between doctor and patient. He took these photographs over the course of many years with hundreds of different women, as well as men (murderers and convicts) to decipher the physical codes of the world’s most confusing ancient tradition – madness.

Although some of his attendants and colleagues who describe these photography sessions as highly staged, with Charcot demanding perfection of the moment that usually occurred back at the hospital, beyond the truthful eyes of the 19th Century camera. He painstakingly ensured the detail captured in each photograph was true to, what he thought, was the true depiction of the disease and its many characteristics.

The photographs are very specific and plain. No out of element lighting techniques or off angles – just the subject, and their explicit diagnoses. What came through is a very disturbing display.

The photographs were used to illustrate the true nature of this neurological disorder to a society fascinated by the elaborate and unusual. While many of the women were unable to be treated for their “problems”, they remain unforgettable figures of our modern life.

Today, they are as awesome and curious as ever, with hardly anything in our contemporary culture to compare these majestic and mysterious medical muses.

We really wanted to share. Don’t get hysteric!

Music Minute: “Frankenstein’s Den” by The Hollywood Flames


A great track to keep you in the ghoulish mood, as Halloween’s Eve inches ever nearer.  Tonight we’ll be Ghost Hunting on Toronto Island and we wish we could bring you all along.  We’ll have to remain dancing in our dreams with you, as Frankensteins shackles ring out a tune.

The Hollywood Flames were an American R&B Vocal group formed in the late 40s, during a high school talent show.  They would go on to perform through the span of the 50s whilst rotating members and band names.  Their most famous singing would be “Buzz Buzz Buzz”, later featured on the 2001 “Blow” Soundtrack.

EIN TOTER HING IM NETZ (1960)

It was a while before I could accept the title of this film as “Horrors of Spider Island” when saying it in German is just so much more fun.

Sucker for most Vintage Movie Posters, but especially Horror Films like this for something graphic and exciting. A great alternative to that Audrey Hepburn canvas from IKEA.

Found these gruesome pictures over at Project Terror, and thought they packed a punch. Not sure what kind of punch but am guessing it’s going to be a punch right in that ugly spider’s face!

If you want to know if these ladies and their hero survive this horrible ordeal, head over to Project Terror and check out the full film.

Hope we don’t get you too tangled up for the day!

Sincerely,

{THE EYE}
