10 Interesting Things I Found on the Internet #41

Louis Wain "The Bachelor Party" (1939)

Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of Victorian cough syrup. Something weird happened to me today and a whole lot of barnacles suddenly attached to me on a walk, so here they are, the treasures from the internet.

Imagine having the job of shoveling out the bottom? These epic loos were used by those who could use the gravity of their position to defecate on those below. Via Reddit

Slave to the Rhythm by Grace Jones

I love the funky guitar and groovy bass-lines of this song, it’s absolutely timeless, potent and optimistic. It was literally an anthem for the optimistic 80’s. The surreal visual storytelling of the video clip is like a moving Matisse or Miro painting. The 80’s really was the peak time of MTV visual storytelling and trend-setting. Grace Jones is a goddess of immense power, poise and androgynous beauty. For me, she’s like the female version of David Bowie.

Yeah it’s cute that she’s grooming humans, but where’s her real family? 😦

Trekking the Mardi Himal trail in Nepal with Kraig Adams

This guy makes meditative and silent vlogs without talking and just with ambient walking sounds. As a result, his videos are very immersive and has a compelling, fly-on-the-wall vibe. I just love this video I have watched it many times, a highlight is a stray white dog that adopts Kraig and follows him along the way and then just inexplicably leaves as well along the way. Great armchair travel.
