obviously i’ve had this fascination with aristocracy my whole life. like, the kings and queens of 500 years ago… they’re like rock stars. if there was a ‘tmz’ 500 years ago, it would be about, like, henry viii and marie antoinette and all those people.
glitterby aprilynne pike: Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it’s the eighteenth century and an almost-queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life.
Madame Du Barry (1934) available on DVD or at least digitally
Dolores del Rio! Jokes about kings making omelettes! Anita Louise as Marie Antoinette and a seriously adorkable wedding night scene between her and Louis! A film which is a unique example of something that exists as a mash up of pre-Code Hollywood and films after the establishment of the PCA! It would be marvelous!
Introversion (I) preferred to extraversion: ISFPs tend to be
quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close
friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy).
Sensing (S) preferred to intuition: ISFPs tend to be more
concrete than abstract. They focus their attention on the details rather
than the big picture, and on immediate realities rather than future
Feeling (F) preferred to thinking: ISFPs tend to value
personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions,
they often give more weight to social implications than to logic.
Perception (P) preferred to judgment: ISFPs tend to withhold
judgment and delay important decisions, preferring to “keep their
options open” should circumstances change.

A production still from Je m'appelais Marie Antoinette, an interactive spectacle play written by Andre Castelot and Alain Decaux, which played in France in the 1990s. The play recreated Marie Antoinette’s trial and allowed the audience to vote for the fate of the queen during a break after the end of the trial. The ending of the play would differ depending on the outcome of the audience vote. The four options were: acquittal, exile, imprisonment, and death.
In 1784, the whatchmaker Pierre Kintzing and the cabinetmaker David Roentgen,presented at Versailles the Joueuse de Tympanon, an automaton looking like Marie Antoinette. It is said that the automaton’s hair were those of the Queen and that its dress had been created/made with the same fabric of one of Maria Antoinette dresses. The music played by the Joueuse was composed by Christoph Willibald Gluck Allemand; a German composer who was also the Queen’s music teacher. Marie antoinette, who understood the value of such a creation bought it in 1785 and donated it to the accademy of sciences. The Joueuse de tympanon , survived the horrors of the revolution is now in the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris yet fully functional.
