In Jewish mythology Eve is not the first woman God creates, he created another woman named Lilith. She is very independent and because of this God banishes her from Eden and creates Adam a new wife, Eve who completely obeys him.  This is my interpretation of Lilith who becomes a demon of the night and seduces young men. I will be sharing the complete statue soon! by Flaming June

This is a very clever print ad. In my opinion what makes an ad interesting to look at is the way they tell the story. For this one, Levi's has come out with a jean that is similar to a guy's but now has a fit available for women. When I first looked at this picture, I thought she was in the same pair as he was. And then when I looked closer, I saw that she has her own pair on and she is just as big as one of his legs. It was very clever to me. #M2350 by Hercio Dias

Quote reads:  “I feel like people don’t respect sleeping beauty just because Aurora was asleep for half the movie.

"Bettie Page mugshot, 1972" I wonder what the story is?    "After Bettie left the pinup world she became a religious fanatic. Years later she was diagnosed as schizophrenic and eventually spent over 11 years in a state mental institution because she stabbed three people. A husband and wife the first time, and her 66 year old roommate the second time because she said “God inspired her to do it”." by lori
