Now Playing Tracks

Remember once the things you told me
And how the tears ran from my eyes
They didn’t fall because it hurt me
I just hate to see you cry
Sometimes I wish we could be strangers
So I didn’t have to know your pain
But if I kept myself from danger
This emptiness would feel the same
  • Track Name

    The Music Written on This Dude's Butt

  • Album

    Garden of Earthly Delights

  • Artist

    Hieronymus Bosch


Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell


Body Modification Equals Future Chic

The Capitol elite turn to bots for personal enhancements.

by Velvet Veritas

3D printing has long been a mainstay for scientists and architects, but it’s a relative newcomer on the fashion scene. The most recent stellar example—a masterful collaboration between designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti that resulted in a dress—was worn by our own Capitol Icon, Dita von Teese.  The dress consists of 2,500 intersecting pieces, joined together by hand. A black lacquer coating and 12,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals finished off the look. With the advent of technology on a micro level, industries such as medicine, entertainment — even the engineering of the Hunger Games themselves — have utilized the technology.  Now, we add body modification to the list.  

A product of designer Argyle Witt and a team of nano-technicians working in the Capitol’s most sophisticated labs, these multi-task bots can be worn during day or night.  Pre-set functions include skin cleansing and exfoliation, pigment infusion, body structuring, and, pictured at left, the creation of absolutely unique pieces of wearable art. Body structuring employs the same technique as pigment implementation, allowing the bots to construct shapes under the skin for an entirely personalized body-modification experience.  Some favorite patterns with the jet set are evil eyes, spirals and tribal markings.

The 3D printing function in the bots utilizes a series of ever-changing algorithms to produce a one-of-a-kind piece of fashion every time the bots are worn. Three individual pieces can be fabricated before material depletion, giving the most discerning of Capitol fashionistas a few choices.  Says Witt, “Every woman should feel like she’s one in a million.  With these bots, we give her the luxury and the look to do so.”
