So you want the look of not really caring if it rains. But you can’t just go place a newspaper on your head — what will wet newsprint do to your hair?! You spent hours getting your coif to look like you don’t care! Enter the faux newspaper scarf. Les Lunettes Noires, c1950 (Chris Tselios).

He’ll Give You The Answer That You’ll Endorse

This terrified-horse mask has been getting around the internet for quite a while, whether you’re scaring roommates or just watching Google Streetview Car drive by.   Turns out, it’s a $30 piece of amazing that’s available from Amazon — and the user-contributed photos are awesome beyond words.   Go look at the Amazon slideshow, because rather than stealing an Amazon photo I give you this animated GIF instead.  Enjoy.

Via, and via.

Never Too Late For Santa

You have to post it when you find it.

Photograph from the 1915 Midnight Frolic Ziegfeld Follies production, The Girl from My Home Town:

Most notably in this tableau of feminine beauty is Olive Thomas, seen as “New York Girl” standing beside Muriel Hudson and Margaret Morris, costumes by Cora McGeachy. This important and seductive view which really showcases the fun and allure of the Follies in the 1910s was taken by White Studios, and is a large format hand printed phoograph, never intended for public distribution.
