Fantasy Art: Bettie Paige - Red Devil

Bettie Page (April 22, 1923 – December 11, 2008) was an American model who became famous in the 1950s for her fetish modeling and pin-up photos. She has often been called the “Queen of Pinups”. Her look, including her jet black hair, blue eyes and trademark bangs, has influenced many artists.

She was also “Miss January 1955” one of the earliest Playmates of the Month for Playboy magazine. “I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society,” Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told the Associated Press.

Her later life was marked by depression, violent mood swings and several years in a state psychiatric hospital. In 1959, she converted to Christianity, and later worked for Billy Graham. After years of obscurity, she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s.

Life Is A Beach in Abtract Style by Mary Calkins

Mary Calkins

Mary Whiton Calkins, whom is best known for two things: becoming the first woman president of the American Psychological Association and being denied her doctorate from Harvard. However, these two aspects only make up a small portion of what she accomplished in her life. Her entire life was dedicated to her work, especially the development of her “psychology of selves.”

She founded an early psychology laboratory and invented the paired-associate technique. She passionately delved into the new field of Psychology but also was highly active in the field of Philosophy. She was not deterred by being a woman and used her struggles to gain a voice to speak out against women’s oppression.

Mythology Art: Pandora’s Box in Greek Mythology

Pandora’s box is an artifact in Greek mythology. The “box” was actually a large jar given to Pandora (“all-gifted”), which contained all the evils of the world. When Pandora opened the jar, the entire contents of the jar were released, but for one – hope. Today, opening Pandora’s box means to create evil that cannot be undone.

Pandora was the first woman on Earth. Pandora was created upon the command of Zeus to Hephaestus, the god of craftsmanship. Hephaestus created her using water and earth, while other gods granted her many gifts (for example, beauty from Aphrodite, persuasiveness from Hermes, and music from Apollo).

After Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus sought reprisal by handing Pandora to Epimetheus, the brother of Prometheus. At the same time, Pandora was given a jar that she was ordered not to open under any circumstances. Despite this warning, overcome by curiosity Pandora opened the jar. Upon doing so, the evils contained within escaped into the world. Scared, Pandora immediately closed the jar, only to trap Hope inside, as was Zeus’ will.

In other versions, Hope does come out though the main purpose of the myth of Pandora is to address why evil exists in the world.

Smoking Room: Gitanes Swiss Cigarette

Gitanes (Gypsy women “) is a French cigarette brand, sold in many varieties of strengths and packages. It is currently owned by Imperial Tobacco following its acquisition of Altadis in January 2008 after being owned by SEITA before. Originally rolled with darker or brown (brown) tobacco, in contravention of “blondes”. In honor of the name, the cover sports a silhouette of a Spanish gypsy woman playing the tambourine. The cans have always been the black, blue and white.

There is a distinction between “fair” style power Gitanes, and the classic style of Gitanes Brunes, both of which are sold in Europe. The classic Gitanes Brunes tobacco reached its features and distinctive “bite” by using a flued fire method of curing tobacco, rice and a “type of rolling paper which differs from most cigarettes. The result was a cigarette who was both strong flavor and a distinctive aroma.

Gitanes Blondes are available, filtered, light and regular. Gitanes Brunes are available in 70mm, filtered and unfiltered.

Production in France recently arrested with a plant remains operational in the Netherlands. This is mainly due to higher levies on tobacco imposed by the French government following the advice of health, which forced the price of French cigarettes levels to those of the United States, with brands more aggressively promoted such as Marlboro now taking the majority market share.
