God is Dead

“God is dead, I said baby that’s fine with me” sings Lana Del Rey, “No one is going to take my soul away.”

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” _Exodus 20:3, not in Lana Del Rey’s “Dark Paradise.” Ahh, the luxury of being in a drug haze, is now in lyrics, folks. Lana Del Rey, modern day song artist and writer, reveals something to us through “Gods and Monsters” about herself. Which far transcends her roll as an inspirational fashion figure or singer, but I believe a held belief in Deism. Who provoked her to express such a darker side of her personality? Which I do applaud her for because “I’m sure her experiences have shaped her to be of such” and many people can relate to her message and the questions that arise, “Is the Universe the creation of a Master Design, or a physical matter that sparked by accident, and anything goes?” Nonetheless, Friedrich Nietzsche would be very impressed by Lana’s message!

I’m still simply mesmerized by her fashion style, but her song gives us an insight into the realm of escapism. She is a woman of intense and platonic extremes, and I find it fascinating. However, a belief in Deism I didn’t see that coming…From the sound of “Gods and Monsters” it looks like on her deathbed she’ll be burning candles to the fallen angel_Lucifer.

David Hume, the deist and many people believe he was an atheist philosopher of the 18th century, went through a similar experience as Lana; he entered into that consciousness where philosophers spend a full lifetime contimplating-life, death, the afterlife, and then gravitating into a black hole of depression. He cried before his final farewell saying, “I am in flames!” His desperation was a horrible scene, according to the famous last words. Prior to the event, the afterlife didn’t exist for Hume, he said, it’s “a most unreasonable fancy.” I suppose, his rejection of a supernatural entity and desperation for “truth” entitles Lana to also reject all conventional religious beliefs and live heavenly on earth_even if it means shooting heroine her entire lifetime.

While fans are screaming, “Me and God Don’t Get Along” It is perpetuating a belief system of a God that does not intervene with the creation of his universe. Is mainstream media broadcasting such a message?

Lets take it down a notch, Lana, you’ve made your point, we’re in an epidemic of influencials under the influence of synthetic altered consciousness(I’m sure you’re thanking LSD for that) Yes, I get your message from “The Neptune World Premiere.” Save me a front seat at your show so I can get a closer look of our 21st century chosen lifestyle.

God is dead and now she,”sings.” It’s Isaac Newton, the father of modern physics whom I concern myself over for his science that’s killing God.

The Art of Seduction

Dita Von Teese Fashion Style and The Art of Seduction

When Vintage,Glamour,Sexuality, and Retro is your religion then Dita Von Teese is your Saint! Some might say she is the Queen of Burlesque, or at least second in line to your significant other_Chuckles_

Dita glazes in orange and glitters of gold and enters the stage telepathically sending out her Golden Rule; He who has the Gold makes all the rules! Who knew surrendering while your heart is racing, va va voom, can have any perks?

Dita slithers her figure in Christian Louboutin’s hologram launch in a single unforgettable feminine charm that promises an excitement many don’t want to resist. Oh yes, vintage Glamour can add an ineffable mystery!

What shimmers through about Dita’s fashion style is her love for past eras, from vintage bar ware, cointreau cocktails, to 40’s hair styles and dresses from the 30’s mixed with the 50’s crinkled yet penetrating deep-set eyes. She grew up idolizing the Golden Age Stars, like Rita Hayworth. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph she said, “everything about them was exciting to me.” I can certainly agree with Dita, it’s hard to relate to modern stars. When watching the Oscars, I prefer getting slapped in the head so I can actually see some stars!

For a woman with a big archive of vintage, her closet would make a perfect store. Dita’s lingerie line,Von Follies,empowers women to own their sensuality, and enjoy the rituals of being a woman.

Dita, you’re quite the seductress, as for me Victoria Secret will have to keep lifting up the “babes” until that age when people have to “give old things a new life” and I can indulge in your superior feminine standards.
