COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK S/S12: HENRIK VIBSKOV

by Accidental Bear

The untrained eye might not think to look toward Denmark for eye-popping clothes from the future with a feel of times past. Dazed digital magazine caught up with the designer to talk about inspirations ands goals. Dazed said, “Henrik Vibskov always manages to impress his audience by giant installations, graphic prints, imaginative accessories and otherworldly sounds. This time around he was true to his style and presented a collection on a rotating catwalk with models opening and closing doors almost in a working class factory environment which provoked a feeling of paranoia or you might just say Panopticon.” Oh, I drool over the word panopticon.

by Accidental Bear

This video of rock pioneer Pat Benatar was largely over looked when release in 1982. My adult brain comprehends this song and concept on anxiety much better than my 10 year old pea brain was capable of at release. Nice to see you again “Anxiety (Get Nervous) video, I am rather fond of you.

Mad Respect: Open Hand Founder Ruth Brinker Dies at the Young Age of 89

by Accidental Bear

Ruth Brinker was a visionary and fought off ignorance and fear of HIV in the very early years of the disease. Few people get all my respect, but today I put in all with my thoughts of Ruth. RIP you lovely lady. I blow you a big kiss.  A B

(B.A.R.) Ruth Brinker, the retired grandmother who in 1985 started delivering meals to people living with AIDS and went on to found Project Open Hand, died Monday, August 8 at the Eden Villa Assisted Living Facility in San Francisco. She was 89.

She died after a series of strokes and the effects of vascular illness, the agency said in a statement.

Ms. Brinker, who had retired from a career in food services, heard about a neighbor who had died of AIDS. She was shocked to discover that malnutrition was as much a cause of her neighbor’s death as the illness itself, and started preparing meals in her kitchen and delivering them to seven people, according to a statement on Project Open Hand’s website. Soon, of course, that number grew and others came to help her cook and deliver hot, nutritious meals throughout San Francisco.
