Honestly the funniest thing about Stranger Things is that this Top Secret Government Funded Science Group built a huge sensory deprivation tank in a specialized room and spent probably thousands of dollars on all the equipment for El’s powers and then 3 kids build one out of a kiddie pool in their school gym and it works better than ever lol

Putting Lipstick On A Pig

by reddit user Pippinacious

Except for the whole murder thing, Courtney James seemed like a lovely young woman. She was bright, articulate, a dedicated college student and well liked waitress at a popular restaurant.

I met her when she was sitting in an interrogation room at the precinct. She was a bit on the larger side, dressed conservatively in pastel colors and minimal makeup, and when I came in, she introduced herself with a polite smile, as if we were meeting for a job interview as opposed to a police investigation. She had declined to have an attorney present, so I got right to business.

What does the mountain of clothes in Spring Day symbolize?

it is based on Christian Boltanski’s Personnes installation 

as this album is connected to the Sweol ferry tragedy where hundreds of people died (BTS have also donated 100mil won to charities to help families of the victims, it was done without the media knowing but it got out) 

this pile represents all the lives that were lost, all the children, the wives, the husbands, the boyfriends, the daughters, the girlfriends, the friends, the families. it is a way of remembering or ‘recognizing’ all those who were lost that day. all the people who had lives, who had names, who had a family, these are their ‘clothing’. this is a grave

“Sixty-nine camps, but there are no tents and no living people, only thousands of old clothes lying face down on the floor. Is this where they fell or where they were laid? The irresistible metaphor springs literal in the visitor’s mind, as if clothes could have bodies or faces.

You walk, you look, you search for evidence among the mildewed raincoats and threadbare denim. Here is a corduroy jacket, almost new, and a faded gabardine; there is a baby’s knitted cardigan. They were young, they were old, they were not ready to die, poor departed souls who leave nothing behind but shucked garments. Mown down, laid out in groups, they have all met a terrible end. This is apparent without a single bloodstain or name; Boltanski’s evidence is both more and less than proof.

And as you walk, the sense is of honouring the dead, of trying to observe the details of each and every one. These grouped clothes may represent mass graves, or corpses arrayed for identification in the school gym, but they also constitute a kind of cemetery. For the experience is just the same: that there is nobody here and yet the place is crowded.

Boltanski has always been a maker of monuments and memorials. His medium is the human trace and the memento mori.x
