The Good Old Daze

Judges 21 25 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.

For the Ladies: How to lead the counter-revolution by your daily dress. (I almost forgot to mention respecting your husband by being modest and beautiful for him!) | Barnhardt Finally, yes, white viscose gloves. Cheap ($15 per pair), and they can be washed frequently. I bought three pairs right away so I can always have a clean pair. I actually recommend viscose and not cotton for ease of care. Glove etiquette says a lady shakes hands WITH, but ALWAYS removes to eat or drink.

Ukrainian Landscape by Konstantin Kryzhitsky 

Emma Willard’s Maps of Time – 

The writer E. B. White said that habitually creative people were “prepared to be happy,” and for the most part, I’d agree with him. I think of Virginia Woolf, alert to the most modest daily pleasures: a new nib to her pen, a passing omnibus. I think of the painter Claude Monet, brush always at the ready. When he painted clouds, he had to act with some dispatch, because, on an average day, a given effect lasted barely thirty minutes. In that brief half-hour, he had to catch all the changing colors of the sky, the shifting clouds, the sudden bursts of light. Like Desnos, he had to “seize the day,”surrendering to that magic state called “flow” a transcendent, concentrated swathe of time, in which the self dissolves into its present task, and all ordinary self-consciousness falls away. ~ Christian McEwen, World Enough & Time

      Ah… fuck Vox Day and his overwhelmingly obsessive and knewjerking shit when it comes to Peterson. I stopped reading this little death dwarf after he started expunging all those who disagreed with his obviously envious gullshit. Day is just another death dwarf with a bad, burning-down slur habit. He belongs on a hook in the pit.

        He can be a piece of shit at times.

          …at times?

          • ghostsniper July 6, 2022, 7:28 AM

            When he gets on his boomer rant. He’s envious cause he missed being a boomer, and all the good things they have stolen from everybody else, by a few years.

        Just admit you’re pissed because he’s two years late shipping your copy of Castalia House’s ‘Graphic Novel’ adaptation of Thucydides in Genuine Corinthian Leather. Gamma!

          Well, there’s that and the fact that during our last encounter I had to tell him twice to “Smell the glove.”

    Re. Barnhardt’s sartotial post, I checked out her link to the clothing shop. Very nice; when the opportunity arises, I’ll be going there first for new togs. As far as the gloves thing goes, though… that’s one I just don’t get. Comfort level would be on a par with wearing a face mask as a fashion statement.

    I bought a couple of pairs of gloves when the Wuflu hit. Frankly, mine are cuter than Ann’s as they have a ruffle at the cuff with lace edging. And they are polkadot!

    • ghostsniper July 5, 2022, 1:50 PM

      I can see that. And it looks fetching.
      I am a fan of all things 40’s and 50’s.

    “You can’t judge a race.” I used to believe that.

    • ThisIsNotNutella July 5, 2022, 4:39 PM

      I used to believe it, too. Then i started paying attention.

      Additionally, If you can’t judge a Race, you’re saying that the mean and standard deviation don’t describe a normal distribution.

      But then nobody expects Race Deniers to be numerate. People who flip from population statistics to individual outliers to ‘prove’ points as convenient get no time from me.

      It was good to have had ideals.

    A plethora of interesting stuff in this here Daze;nicely done,Mr V.
    Been feeling like the guy sitting on the edge of Niagara lately;waiting to go over into the abyss.
    Grim news everywhere.
    Then I see The Solid Gold Endless Buffet Dance Team,followed by the If Cats and Dogs Had a Time Machine meme. Suddenly I feel like the Wolf. Life is good.

    Ann is spot on regarding how we dress ourselves. Her navy polka-dot dress is beautiful;simple cut,classic. It’s an excellent idea,make women look good again,one dress at a time.
    The white gloves remind me of my Southern childhood;one simply did not leave the house without a hat (to safeguard the complexion) and those white gloves.

    Yoshitoshi was my 4th Akita’s name.Had no idea he was an actual artist,and quite a good one. Many thanks for opening that door. Great Daze.

    This one!


    I’ll take this over Leonardo da Vinci’s deluge drawings, thank you very much.

      art: where you spend a lot of time painting a picture than at the end you drag a dry brush down it half a dozen times, just because.

  • Lady July 5, 2022, 6:12 PM

    I have grown out my hair, started wearing skirts out on public all the time. I’m working towards wearing them at home all the time. I just haven’t made “work skirts” yet. My husband has mentioned many many times how much he appreciates my modesty in clothes and manner.

    When I was a girl, we would wear gloves to go to church, and to go to the city. You know, the difference between “town and country” used to be a thing!

    Now, slovenly is the rule of the day for men, women, and children. I refuse.

    This is the next generation of Conservative chicks. They’re figuring things out.

    • ThisIsNotNutella July 5, 2022, 8:19 PM

      Maybe. There has to be very strong evidence of time-proven, non-defecting trustworthiness before I’ll take a TradThot’s emanations very seriously. At least she’s not spreading poz and is making some good noises. Right now. Let’s see if she’s still married to her husband in 10 years. (YouTube Monetized) Talk is cheap.

    Mr. VDL, you have been ON FIRE lately with your content! We so appreciate the volume of meaty posts. I don’t know how you do it but please know that your audience is grateful. Keep it up as long as you can.

    After the fire we supported you for about a year with monthly PayPal drops but haven’t sent you anything in a long time. I’ll try and fix that. You earn it every day.

    • Vanderleun July 6, 2022, 8:23 AM

      I am very grateful for anything at all. Thank you very much. It would be very helpful at this time.
