Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.” [x]

I feel like some men in romantic relationships with women don’t want a partner. The don’t want to share domestic duties, and even women talking about their own problems are simply ‘nagging’ and ‘irritating’. They want a mother who’ll take care of them, who’ll praise them for putting the toilet flap down, cook for them, and won’t bore them with her own problems. They also want a pretty doll that smiles at them on cue, has sex with them whenever they want it, and who they can parade in front of their male friends.


i’m not like other girls. actually, i’m nothing like other girls. and that girl u saw get on the bus earlier isn’t like other girls either. it’s surprising, really. it’s almost as if everybody is different from each other. holy shit
