Hats Off for the Unsung Visionaries and Heroes of Our Time

Nicola Tesla literally invented the modern world,and over 50 years before we could  even figure out how to understand his inventions, let alone use them.

Nicola Tesla

Nicola Tesla

”Those who dance, are considered insane by those who can’t hear the music”
Hats off to the Mad Scientist for ”hearing the music”(of the universe).
For wanting to make the world a better place.
All without sense of self and wanting credit for it…
Hats off !
For The Modern World Inventor who ”heard the music”,before anyone else.

P.S.      Laughing all the way to the bank, the 4 Mammoths of modern technology bragged:

  • Wikipedia said, “I know everything!”
    Facebook said, “I know everybody!”
    Google said, “I can find anything!”
    Internet said, “You’re nothing without me!”
    …….
    Electricity said, “Keep talking, bitches…”
    Without Nicola Tesla,none of these modern inventions would be possible.
    None.
    HATS OFF!!!

Two of a kind-The Cosmic Girl an Jean Paul Sartre

Sometimes,more often than not,I feel more close to the other-wordlyness than to the mundial mediocrety-ness.

C

Cosmic Girl

Or  as Jean Paul Sartre eloquently expresses it in Nausea.

”How far away from them I feel up on this hill. It seems to me they belong to another species. They come out of their offices after the day’s work, they look at the house and the squares with a satisfied expression ,they think it’s their town. A ‘good, solid town’. They aren’t afraid ,they feel at home. They have never seen anything ,but the tamed water which runs out of the tabs ,the light which pours from the bulbs when they turn the switch ,the half-bred bastard trees which are held up with crutches .They are given proof, 100 times a day , that everything is done mechanically ,that the word obeys fixed, unchangeable  laws. Bodies released in vacuum all fall at the same speed, the municipal park is closed every day at 4 p.m. in winter 6 p.m. in summer ,lead melts at 335*C ,the last tram leaves Town Hall at 11.05 p.m .They are peacable, a little morose ,they think about Tomorrow ,in other words, simply about another Today; towns have only one day at their disposal which comes back exactly the same every morning.They barely tidy it up a little on Sundays. The Idiots .It horrifies me to think that I am going to see their thick ,self-satisfied faces again. They make laws, they write Populist  novels ,they get married, they commit the supreme folly of having children. And meanwhile, the vast Nature has slipped into their town, it has infiltrated everywhere ,into their house, into their offices ,into  themselves It doesn’t move ,it lies low ,and they are right inside it ,they breathe it, and they don’t see it…I know it’s submissiveness is laziness, I know that it has no laws, that what they consider it’s constancy doesn’t exist .It has nothing but habits and it may change those tomorrow.”

Jean-Paul Sartre

Insp-iris-ation,Inspir-art-ation,Iris Apfel

What can be more inspiring,uplifting and liberating,than a woman with a spirit,guts and the-hell-with-old-people-rules attitude…
The one who perenially shows the middle finger to all the dress-for your-age-you-can’t-do-that-be-a -sensible(shudder!)-woman,grandma,wife,senior citizen brigade.
An absolute celebration of living the creative life to the fullest, without the boundaries(says who) of age,tradition or the common norms of beauty.
Bow to the queen of ageless style.

Creative petrol spill meets peacock hologram outfits

This is the artsy peacock slips on a petrol spill creative look.Totally obsessed with this shiny hologrammy,petrol spilly,peacocky colored materials lately.It reflects the light and shines and changes colors.The problem is,it’s hard to find in my local fabric store.So when I saw these hand bag ,

SIDE-LOOK-BEST

Petrol spill outfit

Waist cincher -corset made from the cut up bag.Also matching leg warmers?spats?

Corset front-I call it bermuda triangle

Corset just play

Corset back-I call it just press play,since the inspiration for it  were the cd player buttons-play,pause,fast forward,fast backward.

It goes without saying that the front and the back of the corset are interchangeable.Whatever the mood.

Convertible converts as a delivery track or Daily Saving tip

Emphasis on convertible.That’s what they do.Convert.Into delivery track in this case.That’s one  way to save a buck or two on  delivery costs.And it’s not the first time.In the past we have transported a big fridge,a mattress,a small fridge,a freezer,a table,and longer rack,even when it rains,so we are getting our money worth of our convertible…Topless is the way to go in that case.

Convertible converts into delivery track

Convertible converts into delivery track

Today I bought this white rack.
The good news is that I saved on delivery cost.The bad news is that  during my OH-so-carefull-trip back home,the lightweight metal  rack suddenly flew in the air,blown by the wind and almost hit the driver behind me,landing right in the middle of the road.Luckily no damage to him or my car,or the rack.Pheeeew.Note to self-always carry a  rope in the trunk,you never know.

And that’s the 16 reason why I love my all American,metal,sturdy,old school, topless car-beauty,sportness,sturdiness,roomfullness and functionality.Oldy,but goody.Girl’s best friend.

Colorful outfit to bring the spring in style

Colorful self made creation to try to bring the spring mood here in Holland.
It’s already march and not much springness in the air,just wind and cackling birds,desperately seeking the spring arrival.Or at least some food or mate.Just like the birds ,I like to cackle loudly,but with colors.More like color explosions to chase the winter. What better way to get in the mood than the bright cheerfullness of neon,pink,yellow and green?.Fake it, till you make it bring the spring.

Colorful outfit

For the bright patches on this coat/dress I used old neopren-ish sport jacket material and some reflective tape key chain straps and trims.Canary yellow,green and blue flower on top of my head.

Colorful bright outfit
