Bone music: Soviet-era bootleg X-ray pressings

Around 1946-1961 in the USSR when certain records, say, rock n roll or jazz were banned sounds, resourceful audiophiles salvaged used x-rays from hospital waste bins and pressed the contraband music into the thick exposed film.

Martha Stewart's Modeling Days


These couple remaining days before life resumes it's full speed are full of domestic catch-up for me: unpacking, cleaning, decluttering, and channeling Martha. 

Before building a lifestyle media empire, Martha Stewart modeled during college to supplement her scholarship.

70s Rock Stars In Their Parents' Homes

David Crosby

I've been so fortunate to spend a whole week with my parents this holiday. It's an interesting feeling, being a grownup back in your childhood home. So many details are exactly the same as they were when I was a kid. I'll always be their child, even while sneaking vegetables onto their plates and trying to stealthily scoop up the check before they can. No matter how old we get, we'll always be kids to our parents. That fact is frustrating as a teenager, but becomes more endearing to me the older I get. (See SNL's "Back Home Baller.")

Below: 
From the LIFE archives, and found via DailyMail: In 1971, photographer John Olson photographed some of the most influential musicians of the time in their parents' and grandparents' homes:

How To Dress Like You're In A Dystopian YA Movie


The new Hunger Games movie is in theaters and Divergent is on HBO, so my army kid proclivity for all things military, utilitarian, and tactical is eating up these wardrobes.


There seems to be a formula. Pick at least 3: 
- Really cool jacket
- Military / Army green / fatigues
- Utilitarian / tactical
- Black + grey
- Modern / Futuristic
- Activewear / Nylon / Down
- Dust Bowl era beige and linen
- One piece of esoteric jewelry (bonus points if it contains DNA, a USB drive of secret plans, the coordinates of where you're supposed to meet your parents/love interest after the apocalypse/rebellion, or a note from your mentor/trainer.)


Scroll through below for a wardrobe to my imaginary YA dystopian movie:
