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?

E.O.F. Snapshot of the Day {August 30, 2013}

dirk dubois

{ “MUSCLES” Magazine – 1940s/50s (?) – Dick Dubois }

This is some exquisite work on all fronts. Check out the beautiful art direction here. It’s pretty much the epitome of the “lost in paradise” feeling we’re always yearning for here at The Eye of Faith. The colors are magnificent and romantic and beautifully thought through.

Then there’s Mr. Dubois. Dick Dubois. Looking mighty awesome even to today’s standards. In fact I feel like I know guys that would rock those denim shorts, and have that awesome curly, sweeping hair-do – but I’m not sure if any of them have the true body of a Greek God. You have to give it up for these heroes of our modern world. They leave people for us guys to look up to. Is here anything wrong with that?

Best part is people think that this kind of buff man persona is something new invented as of late by surf culture and materialism in the 80s, but it’s completely not the case. Men have always been obsessed with the male form and the male figure, and it has always dominated our world.

That’s why I can equate him to a Greek God, because that’s essentially what their statues were – just depictions of perfection that had been achieved by mortals. Mostly athletes and wrestlers, maybe warriors-  just like these men; Probably athletes (possibly aspiring actors) and young disbanded war vets (the odd criminal, too).

We all deserves our idols. Worship them for strength.

Such a cool cover. They really don’t make ’em like they used to.

Too fucking cool.

Menswear Meets the Museum. Fashion Invades the Lourvre!

Cool and Casual menswear invades the Louvre!  Kings, gods and thinkers; historic  sculptures receive an urban makeover ala’ Dennis Wilson style!  What we know most notably as marbleized peices of history are photo-shopped into model Adonis’s to show off some cool Rayban’s and Khakis with Plaid.  Stumbling onto this story at ModAddiction.net, we know this was a sure tale to share with our readers!

French art director Alexis Persani has collaborated with french photographer Leo Caillard to create these photo-shopped marvels.  The Christ with a denim button down smoking a cigarette, the writer Montaigne tries on ‘hipster’ style. Fashion invades the sculptures in the Louvre, indeed!


Watch the below Video to see how this all came together through the magic of photo-shop! Proving one thing for certain, some menswear styles are truly timeless.  Who wouldn’t want to hang out and smoke a cigarette with Jesus? (don’t answer that if you don’t smoke).

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you, our American Readers!  We would never.

Seeing as the good times rolled by, and now we lie in the wake of the Fireworks, we want to ask, how was your 4th of July??  What do you consider your rightful Act of Patriotism over the course of the last week, we wonder?

We wouldn’t leave you hanging without a touch of style inspiration a la you know who.  Let’s keep celebrating Independence on this 5th of July.

Sincerely,

Dreams, Nightmares and Fantasies


Tuck your ambition where no one will notice, or wear it one your sleeve!  Only you can decide how you’d like to carry on through this life.  This is a destiny you’ve been planning in the pit of your own subconscious for many nights now!  Deem yourself worthy of being a hero and envision the future waiting around the corner, your destiny is your own to fulfill.


“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde


But be forewarned, the demons come out at night to play and to feast.  They harvest our hopes and turn dreams to waking anxiety.   A dream has turned to nightmare in what seemed like a flash, now arousing feelings horror and distress.  But you are more powerful than creature of the dark.  Fight or flight? Do we deem ourselves worthy of accomplishing the many feats which plague us?  Imperfectly conscious, the truth will be told.

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
Edgar Allan Poe


There is an energy within our dreams which fuels our ambitions.  A strong desire to accomplish more than which greats us each morning, leaving us yearning for more each night.  A fantasy of a richer tomorrow, where dreams are bright, where we won’t see a fright.  We must battle the darkness as it comes to reap our hopes and prayers.

The demons are listening,  we must cast away any doubt!  Stay strong in our fantasies and remember, don’t be afraid of the doubt.

The Eye.
