Restore Our Anthem is a petition to restore the Canadian National Anthem “O Canada!” to it’s 1908 original version, which said “thou dost in us command”, but was changed in 1913 to “In all thy sons command”. While the later might be more current English, it did change the meaning rather drastically. Changing this to “in all of us command” makes a lot of sense to me. Click through for a nice video they put together (though it does lack an example modified anthem). Let me know what you think in the comments bellow!

Hot on the heels of the cervix photo essay comes this interview with Petra Collins on a t-shirt for American Apparel depicting a masturbating, menstruating, hairy, vagina. People are calling it all kinds of things, as you can imagine. NSFW obviously. I think the image is fine, and don’t think any part of it is gross, but I’m not sure I’d wear something like that around town.
I don’t know if I’d say it’s a beautiful cervix, but it’s certainly not ugly. I dunno, it looks like a cervix? It is however a super informative photo essay project showing the changes throughout a menstrual cycle. If you don’t like blood, body parts, and fluids, then maybe skip it. NSFW. via EdithC
It’s not often I think this material can be pulled off well, I think it’s the sheen. But the skirt somehow works really well with it, and the jacket keep it more subtle. via The Sartorialist.
It’s tough to make a knitted sweater not look bulky, but maybe that’s because of the ones we typically make/buy. This midrift bearing one seems to work rather well, ironic since usually we think of bundling up in a sweater.
From The Sartorialist.
Great use of baggy blacks of different shades and textures, and fantastic contrast with the hair. Would it still work without the hair? How would it change the look?
