“Micro” miniature radio, USSR, 1965-69. Unlike many advanced Soviet designs, which were produced in a unique copy - for reporting purposes only - and then were placed on shelves of their designers, “Micro” was mass produced in tens of thousands of copies with most of them being exported to the USA and Europe, where they were in great demand. Khrushchev proudly gave this miracle of Soviet microelectronics as presents to his high-ranking colleagues, including Queen Elizabeth II.
“Women are made to feel defensive of their decisions, particularly when it comes to family life, and I don’t think that’s right. Whether you can ‘keep a man’, I hate that phrase, or whether you breastfeed, whether you don’t, whether you want to have children, whether you don’t, whether you can have children… I could go on and on. This film captures that element of women pitted against each other, who ultimately unite. I think the mistake is to say that these women are victims when, actually, this is an empowering film for women.”
the devil finds me on the side of the highway with a purple dress and a backpack full of bad intentions. my mouth is bloody and my heels are breaking. he says he doesn’t know what to think about hands like mine.
it gets darker and warmer and i feel like the constellations are tearing themselves apart. we dance all night and my mother calls me little blasphemy but i don’t listen anymore.
in the morning i say i want to get better but he says i feel like home. want is an ugly word for girls like me.
