This is a Russian tampon commercial that goes straight to the point, without using “those difficult days of the month”, “sensitive area” and women being skeptical about going to their office with their beige tight skirts. Perfect for this time of the year!
“Welcome To Sochi 2014″ poster series by artist Vasily Slonov (visit full collection here), is cencored in Russia for ridiculing the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi and exposing Vladimir Putin’s continuous violations of human rights.
Putin’s most recent laws include the criminalization of the “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” as well as the “provision permitting the government to arrest and detain gay or pro-gay tourists for up to 14 days, before deportation“.

Horror-themed restaurants, bars and clubs are nothing new, and they’re cropping up all over the world (the H.R. Giger Bar in Switzerland is built on the Alien designer’s creepy biomechanical artwork)
But the owners of Cambiare, a new Italian bar & grill located in Tokyo’s “Golden Gai” district in Shinjuku (a heaven for Tokyo nightlife), have now made their mark with the first club to base their look and design on Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic Suspiria, well-known for its sumptuous sets, innovative lighting and oh so Technicolor blood.
Cambiare just set up their Facebook page this week, so drop by and keep watch for more updates and images.

Illustrations found in Aztec codices (books written by pre-Columbian and colonial-era Aztecs) depicting human sacrifices.
The first is a sacrifice to Tezcatlipoca, the god of Night, the North and Sorcery, a yearly ceremony where a young boy playing music with four flutes was slaughtered at the stairs of a temple outside Tenochtitlan.
Human sacrifice and other forms of torture – self-inflicted or otherwise – were common to many parts of the New World, while the Aztecs in particular have been described as cannibals, sodomites, alcoholics and polygamists.
More on Aztec culture and sacrificial rituals here and here.
Human limbs on sale at Wesker and Son pop-up butchers at London’s Smithfield Market.
The limbs may look eerily realistic but there are actually fashioned from animal meat and the butcher shop is part of a publicity stunt, designed to promote the release of the new video game Resident Evil 6. All the proceeds from the human part sales went to the Limbless Association, a charity for amputees and other people who have lost limbs; a clever strategy according to WWT which helped the stunt to remain within a ‘politicaly correct’ framework.
