Things to remember
(expect a lot of my old shit to pop up - I want to delete my deviantart accounts and just close that chapter forever, so everything salvageable’s gonna come here)
In 2006 I was commissioned to do an illustration of the seppuku ritual to be engraved on a tanto knife, the kind commonly used to do the disemboweling. The title is Batsuro, meaning ‘end’ or ‘fate’.
Latin: ‘Remember your mortality’
This tattoo was worn by a prisoner convicted of the theft of either state or public property, he was sentenced to twenty-five years imprisonment.
Memento Viviere Memento Mori. That is going on me as well. Yep.
Iboriis, 10th Century Post Imperium: This is the bag carried by the Keeper of the dead, in which he keeps his relics - the ritual objects of his trade; the inscribed future-telling bones; and the special Talisman, to protect himself and his subjects from malevolents spirits. He casts the bones in regular protection and divination ceremonies, and is saught after secretly by people who want to find out the spiritual state of their loved-ones. Some think he can predict the future with unfailing accuracy, though it takes great courage to seek him out personally for such a purpose. (via Bone Bag — Inga Hunter)
so these guys are a big reason punk music is punk music:
Forgotten except by the most fervent punk rock record collectors — the band’s self-released 1976 single recently traded hands for the equivalent of $800 — Death would likely have remained lost in obscurity if not for the discovery last year of a 1974 demo tape in Bobby Sr.’s attic. Released last month by Drag City Records as “… For the Whole World to See,” Death’s newly unearthed recordings reveal a remarkable missing link between the high-energy hard rock of Detroit bands like the Stooges and MC5 from the late 1960s and early ’70s and the high-velocity assault of punk from its breakthrough years of 1976 and ’77. Death’s songs “Politicians in My Eyes,” “Keep On Knocking” and “Freakin Out” are scorching blasts of feral ur-punk, making the brothers unwitting artistic kin to their punk-pioneer contemporaries the Ramones, in New York; Rocket From the Tombs, in Cleveland; and the Saints, in Brisbane, Australia. They also preceded Bad Brains, the most celebrated African-American punk band, by almost five years.
Jack White of the White Stripes, who was raised in Detroit, said in an e-mail message: “The first time the stereo played ‘Politicians in My Eyes,’ I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. When I was told the history of the band and what year they recorded this music, it just didn’t make sense. Ahead of punk, and ahead of their time.”
