Style note from North Korea

The next time a Republican starts complaining about Obama stealing her/his rights, show them this article about the Young Leaders requirements on hairstyles for men.

I swear, the world gets weirder every day.

And on the upside, the original film of the great German silent "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" has been restored. Even though a beat-up copy scared the pants off of me in college, I still want to see it: it's a brilliant example of the German expressionist film style, and Cesar the somnambulist is one creepy villain--or monster, I could never decide. I hope it goes public soon!

Wow. This is something you can still see the effects of in Czech Republic. Since in communism, there were only so many types of hair styles and clothes you could wear, a lot of people express themselves quite uniquely now. I have never seen so many elderly ladies with hot pink and purple hair before.

Hrm, as someone who is neither a Republican nor American I'm not that happy with Obama's government infringing on my own rights myself, but this is nonetheless hilarious. I'd seen the earlier posters when they'd come into the press, and they were quite absurd enough - but at least there were a number to choose from, and several did look quite OK. But that... I try to picture men of my acquaintance, including my father, with that hairstyle, and it's just incredibly absurd. Also, what about men who are bald or partly bald? With what one reads about NK, I wouldn't be surprised if they were punished out of principle.

I also like that The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari accidentally invented the twist ending in movies because the studio thought the original ending was too dark. Studio execs: messin' with your movies all the way through.
