dropped a bucket full of dust on my foot yesterday
thought i’d get a nice bruise but no
keep dreaming of houses in rows walking through them
eating pills sucking powders falling in love
saying the wrong things
chewing on lemons
falling on my ass in the snow
a photo of a photo of me looking like an idiot with lovely girls i love and miss
Photo break: 1962: Ina Balke and Alfred Hitchcock at the “Psycho” house for Harper’s Bazaar via Retronaut

Eugène-Louis Doyen was a revolutionary (if flamboyant and controversy-loving) Parisian surgeon who lived between 1859 and 1919.
Long before the Visible Human Project created its 1,871 “slices” of Joseph Paul Jernigan at 1 mm intervals, and created over 65 gigs of anatomical data (and later created 40 gigs of data with a female cadaver), Doyen presented a new way of visualizing the cadaver: longitudinal and horizontal sections, showing exactly how the human anatomy goes together in each area, without the context of seeing the full organs or bones.
Though the full usefulness of these unorthodox sections wasn’t truly appreciated until the advent of tomography in the early 1970s, they were noted to be helpful to early radiologists, and especially to the burgeoning fields of criminal forensics and forensic archaeology.

It’s good to be the king.
Just read that again
"Steam powered mobile bathing house"
"Productive propaganda. A caster with a casting spoon in his hands, a mould in the left corner."
"The workmen’s procession on the first of May."
"Agitation for work-cooperation. The workman stands triumphantly before the implements of industry; at his feet lies a marauder vanquished by the system of cooperation."
"A bourgeois tearing his hair on account of the second meeting of the International Congress."
"Agitation for the closing of markets — ‘the marauder in heaven and the simpleton in hell’. The placard represents an owner of a market-stall sitting in a grand house at a table with provisions and a gramophone standing on it, while a starving citisen under the table is defending the markets."
