Collection: Joan of ArcShare|ArchiveJoan of ArcJoan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F
Sartorial Storytelling: Character at a GlanceShare|ArchiveSartorial Storytelling: Character at a GlanceBy suzymaePulp Fiction by RembrushMasterful storytelling is about suspending disbelief.One would think the most important element of a story being told is the events being depicted. Belief in these events, however, is a prerequisite to appreciation. Picture this: watching Anna Karenina in the theater, you’re riveted to the epic tale of doomed lovers. Your friend, a history professor with a fetish for details, laughs at random moments. After the movie, he pontificates at length on how unbelievable the movie was

Collection: Hammer Time!Share|ArchiveHammer Time!There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
Collection: The LeonidsShare|ArchiveThe LeonidsThe year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20.

The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati
