I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the child in Virgin and Child Enthroned by Master Of Bigallo and Quentin Tarantino

Old-fashioned shower. You pick up the black showerhead, then type in the number of the type of shower you want.
A monster trap. See it’s green eyes peeking out? I remember my parents shoving monsters in our monster trap back in the day, before they became…
Pete Shelley - "Homosapien" (1981)
SIMON REYNOLDS (interview excerpted from Totally Wired): Phil Oakey [of the Human League] told me that the one record that should be brought up in any discussion of the birth of synthpop is the one record that never gets mentioned: Pete Shelley’s Homosapien. Which was produced by you.
MARTIN RUSHENT (the recently deceased super-producer behind the Human League’s Dare!): Buzzcocks had split, and Pete came down to the studio to do demos. I’d started to use some of this new electronic gear I’d bought, and we came up with the album Homosapien. Which we thought was a bunch of demos. I said to Pete, “I’ll punt these demos around and see if I can get you a solo contract.” Bang, everybody’s coming back, wanting to release the demos.
US army doctor returns arm to Vietnamese soldier fifty years after he took it as a souvenir.
there are so many intersecting levels of fucked up here
Yup that’s war for you. Taking arms as trophies then give it back to the dude you took it from and just laugh the whole time
Sam Axelrod, the doctor, had to amputate Nguyen Quang Hung’s arm. The man saved his life. You shits are all going off like he cut it off, shoved him into a rice paddy and left him to die. Christ.
Although it is kind of messed up to keep the articulated bones unless the amputee gave consent.
Normally it would have just been tossed as medical waste. Here’s the whole story, and Nguyen Quang Hung was actually really happy it had been kept - he can now be buried with it.
I’m not saying it isn’t a morbid as fuck souvenir, ‘cuz it is, or that it’s not weird to keep a man’s arm in your closet for over 40 years. That’s messed up. But the earlier comments are a perfect example of people on tumblr wanting to get riled up and assuming things without taking the time to understand what’s actually going on. Axelrod saved that man’s life and actually gave him a job instead of having him carted off as a prisoner of war.
