Just things I like. I'm interested in the lives of women and children from both sides during WW2 and world war 1 (Tags are 'women in wartime' and 'children in wartime'). If you know any good books or films on the subject I'm interested in hearing about them. Of course war isn't pleasent so some of the pictures may be disturbing. I'm not terribly interested in anime but I like Dragon ball Z so there will be a bit of that too.

I also really like Florence and the machine, arcade fire, emilie autumn and die antwoord. I like loads of stuff but these are my top 4 right now


The German anti-war film Die Brücke is my favourite film ever so I'll post screenshots from time to time. As far as I know this fandom consists of only me. If you know where I can get an English dubbed version I would be really grateful. There is also a novel of the same name that I can't seem to find an English translation of so again if you know where I can get one I'd appreciate it.




I don't have any particularly strong views on anything.

This Begotten film is good cross-stitch viewing as it’s so slow moving that I can just glance up every once in a while and not miss anything.

Begotten is a 1990 surreal horror experimental film written, produced and directed by E Elias Merhige. The film was shot entirely in black-and-white with no dialogue whatsoever. The film is basically a reimagining of the story of the Genesis. A (much shorter) Spiritual Sequel, Din of Celestial Birds, was released in 2006. 

It was shot on black and white reversal film, and then every frame was rephotographed for the high-contrast look that it presents. Merhige said that for each minute of original film, it took up to 10 hours to rephotograph it for the look desired.

The primary inspiration for the film came from a near-death experiment at the age of 19, after a car crash.

Summary: The story opens with a robed, profusely bleeding “God” disemboweling himself, with the act ultimately ending in his death. A woman, Mother Earth, emerges from his remains, arouses the body, and impregnates herself with his semen. Becoming pregnant, she wanders off into a vast and barren landscape. The pregnancy manifests in a fully grown convulsing man whom she leaves to his own devices. The “Son of Earth” meets a group of faceless nomads who seize him with what is either a very long umbilical cord or a rope. The Son of Earth vomits organic pieces, and the nomads excitedly accept these as gifts. The nomads finally bring the man to a fire and burn him. “Mother Earth” encounters the resurrected man and comforts him. She seizes the man with a similar umbilical cord. The nomads appear and proceed to rape her. Son of Earth is left to mourn over the lifeless body. A group of characters appear, carry her off and dismember her, later returning for Son of Earth. After he, too, is dismembered, the group buries the remains, planting the parts into the crust of the earth. The burial site becomes lush with flowers.

How come the women who want to be housewives or ‘traditional’ (always something vague like that) always complain about feminists telling them what to do, but whenever I see an article by one about their life, usually some shite about letting their husband always have the final say etc, it almost always has something like this at the end ‘and I think all women should do the same!’

Saw this type of thing again in the DM yesterday (yeah I read it)
