  • small brain: The rise of agriculture started us down the evil path of domination and hierarchy.
  • medium brain: lol primitivism is dumb.
  • bigger brain: Primitivism as an ideology is built on an enlightenment edifice, and buys into both a Rousseauian notion of the "childhood of man" and a debased, vulgar Marxist view of staged historical development, it does not represent a new epistemic break. And its base presumption is not something that is borne out in historical or anthropological evidence. One might look to the Inuit, and how in the seasons during which they lived as small groups of hunter gatherers used a system of social relations that was highly hierarchical, but came together in larger groupings that lived in a more horizontally organized manner. Additionally bronze age archaeological sites in Asia Minor indicate sedentary, agricultural populations living under remarkably egalitarian conditions, as reflected in the exacting equality of house size and the presence of communal areas, wells, and enclosures. Or one might look to the phenomenon of nomadic pastoral steppe empires which ruled over numerous sedentary societies on their periphery and held to a strict hierarchy during most times but reverted to a rather egalitarian system when selecting a new leader. The presence of a city, or a sedentary settlement does not, prima facie, indicate a hierarchical way of enacting social relations. Human societies have a remarkable tendency to explore and play with their systems of political and societal organization. It could be argued that a part of the left's role in our critique should be to regain that sense of play and willingness to explore, modify, and transform our organizational structures.

Carillon Tower at Stanley Park in Westfield, Massachusetts.

It dates to 1949 and features both English and Flemish bells, plus an electronic organ. The two bronze doors have fourteen relief sculptures featuring scenes and symbols from the lives of Frank Stanley Beveridge (park founder) and his wife.

I don’t keep up with the blog much anymore, but every once in a while I come across something I have to share!

Rare Hannu Ikonen Black Enamel Bronze Necklace Reindeer Moss Finland Modernist

A beautiful and unusual pendant by Finnish designer Hannu Ikonen. The necklace is one of his iconic “Renmoosblüte” or Reindeer moss pieces and was produced by Finnish firm Valo Koru. Its organic quality and rich bronze patina make the piece warm and appealing. Enamelled detailing is rarely seen in his designs. (via)

Hey, what body products do you use/recommend? I'm running out of body moisturiser and wash and scrub..

i’m highly allergic to certain essential oils, so i mainly play it safe and use unscented body products. so might not be too interesting for you. for my body wash, i use sukin soap-free body wash. it does the job. as a body moisturiser, i use an oil. the sans ceuticals activator 7 oil is amazing. otherwise, i recommend the french girl organics lumiere bronzing oil (it has a slight tint and shimmer) for summer. For a scrub, i don’t use one that often but i like the vice & velvet called 12 days of crumble (smells like christmas). i also use coffee scrubs! and i bought this sponge from the body shop which also helps exfoliate and i have this muji shower brush thingy. it’s actually nice. indie lee had an unscented body lotion which i wanted to try but unfortunately they sold out :( that’s all i can think of for now! sorry not too interesting with the scents!
