Ennis with Heath's tattoo, so to speak. Strange, ain't it?
yes, it is strange and it is strange that we think it´s strange.


Funny, I can´t recall ever seing the tattoo in that pic before. I think I´ve only seen it in smaller versions before.

That last photo reminds me of the stance Ennis took as he was sneaking a peek, watching Jack ride away, after he'd made him breakfast in camp.

Found a NTM Heath pic over on DCF. BayCityJohn posted it over there and I felt free to snatch it ;D.

Please feel free to snatch my pics anytime.

I'd post them here myself, If I had 3 hands.

I'm watching TDK for the 2nd time in a week!  All the grim news these days is putting me right in the mood for this movie.

Heath's performance really holds up over multiple viewings.  Totally amazing.

"The stripe is such a dynamic surface structure that it can only be covered at a run," writes Michel Pastoureau. "The stripe doesn't wait, doesn't stand still. It is in perpetual motion."



Now who  does that seem like, hmmmm??  ::)

Stripes Are Everywhere
Posted Friday, June 04, 2010 9:52 AM
By Troy Patterson




Left and right, everywhere you turn on the streets of New York, lines are running left to right. Style has cycled around such that shirts boasting horizontal stripes—boat-necked Breton shirts, most notably—are inescapable. Last month's Vogue  sanctified the trend with a spread of house favorites (including Ms. Moss, Mme. Alt, Sr. Picasso ... ) sporting the look, so we can expect it to go wide in a big way. In happening places, the print has already spread beyond close variations on the classic look to include cardigans, tube tops, tank dresses, maternity muumuus, and high-end baby diapers, and your pupils will soon be flicking at the print no matter where you live, unless you live in one of the very least fashion-conscious corners of our proud country, in which case I hope that you are fully enjoying either the fresh country air or the dank humidity of Capitol Hill.

Sure, why not? Capable of tingling the pupils at a hundred yards' distance, such shirts are bold but not loud, as eye-stopping as crosswalks. With shoppers eschewing plastic bags in favor of L.L. Bean totes, the nautical reference integrates the accessory, giving the wearer an air of the intrepid and also connoting a refined and active leisure (as opposed to lazy luxury). They can vibrate like op-art alerts, and they can seem to scroll hypnotically. "The stripe is such a dynamic surface structure that it can only be covered at a run," writes Michel Pastoureau. "The stripe doesn't wait, doesn't stand still. It is in perpetual motion."

Pastoureau, author of semiotic-studies bonbon titled The Devil's Cloth: A History of Stripes,  is a French scholar and archivist who has also written on the color blue, achromatic black, and the origins of heraldry. At heart a medievalist, he traces the line of the pattern's history as far back as the 13th century, when it began its run as a marker of outcasts—heretics, Jews, lepers, hangmen, whores, bastards, "cripples," serfs, and of course the archetypal jailbird. But as I once learned in a critical theory course just as my drowsy head jerked back to consciousness, social codes can reverse themselves while signs float like jetsam or something.

Pastoureau reports that naval stripes took off in England or Holland in the late 1700s as the mark of the seaman—"the simple crew member"—and spread to other countries. Eventually they made their way to the backs of gondoliers and other professionals and to those of men, women, and children frolicking at the seashore. Though The Devil's Cloth  fails to note that stripes entered the fashion canon by way of the House of Chanel, Pastoureau, like Vogue,  recognizes the importance of Picasso, "who never missed an opportunity to exhibit himself in stripes, above and below." In the author's view, the artist, dressing the part of grand avant-gardist, costumed himself as a rogue and a visionary, an "oddball zebra" consciously playing with the print's checkered past.

I read this a few days ago and couldn't figure out who "Mme. Alt" is. Anyone know?

That's the only Alt I could think of, and was going to mention her, but I wasn't sure how many BetterMostians would remember her (she's 50) so  thought that might require more explanation than was worth it. Was/is Carol Alt known for wearing stripes?

The "Mme" appellation suggests this Alt is married and French.
