In the third line, multicolor one: It’s an Anima mundi, I have only seen those in the hands of Rosary ministery’s old ladies. The oldest ones are from the 80′s after Juan Pablo II came to Mexico for the first time. It’s one of the old ones, I know because the crucifixes are different.  The third one on the fourth line: Red and gold. The style is old, the metal is dark, that’s a 50′s rosary, probably a quinceañera one (or it’s maybe older, from the 40′s when the brides carried red roses with their offerings). The fifth one on the fourth line: It’s a quinceañera rosary with Ignatius’s tear. The style is old and in my part of Mexico is orphan girls who used it. At least it was when I was young.The third one of the fifth line: the blue one with the anchor. That one I have only seen in Veracruz and it doesn’t look new.The fifth one on the fifth line: That’s a 90′s wedding rosary. Black and white patterns were popular on that date.The fourth one on the last line: That’s a first communion rosary from the 30′s. It’s delicate and most probably silver. The rest wrench my heart too, the humble everyday rosaries with wooden beads and knots. Those are cheap and bear the wear and tear of their user handling. But those  I described are much more. Those are mother’s rosaries. Those are not just rosaries. Those are mementos, that’s the proof of their families stories. They are taking from them the only portable things they can carry to feel the connection to their families.It’s not a fear tactic. Call it like by its name.It’s dehumanization.

The Old Ones: theladyzephyr: Folks let me talk about Crowley and sunglasses, because I have a lot of emotions about when he wears them and when he doesn’t, and Hiding versus Being Seen. We’re introduced to the concept of Crowley wearing glasses even before we’re introduced to Crowley, by Hastur: “If you ask me he’s been up here too long. Gone native. Enjoying himself too much. Wearing sunglasses even when he doesn’t need them.” Honestly Crowley’s whole introduction is a fantastic; we learn so much about his character in a tiny amount of time. The fact that he’s late, the Queen playing as the Bentley approaches, the “Hi, guys” in response to Hastur and Ligur’s “Hail Satan”. I like this intro much better than the one originally scripted with the rats at the phone company, but I digress. Crowley wears sunglasses when he doesn’t need them. Specifically, he still wears them around the demons, and when he’s in hell. You know where Crowley doesn’t wear glasses? At home. We never once see him wearing glasses in his flat, except for when he knows Hastur and Ligur are coming. That’s an emotional kick to the gut for me. Here’s one of the only places Crowley’s comfortable enough to be sans glasses, and when he knows it’s going to be invaded he prepares not just physically with the holy water, but by putting up that emotional barrier in a place where he wasn’t supposed to need it. An argument could be made that Crowley actually never needs glasses. We’re shown that it’s well within the angels’ and demons’ powers to pass unnoticed by humans. Crowley and Aziraphale waltz out of the manor in the middle of a police raid, and going unnoticed by the police takes so little effort that they can keep up a conversation while they stroll through. Even an unimaginative demon like Hastur apparently doesn’t have trouble with the humans losing it over his demonic eyes. The humans in the scene at Megiddo are acting like “this guy is a little weird” and not “holy shit his entire eyeballs are black jelly” That means that Crowley’s glasses are a choice, just like Aziraphale’s softness. Sure, he could arrange matters so that nobody ever noticed his eyes, but he doesn’t want to. Crowley wants acceptance, and he wants to belong, and he’s never, ever had that. He didn’t fit in before the Fall in Heaven, he doesn’t fit in with the demons in Hell. With the glasses, and with the Bentley and his plants and with the barely-bad-enough-to-be-evil nuisance temptations, he’s choosing Earth. This is where he wants to fit in, perhaps not with the humans, but amongst them. Even after Crowley is at his absolute lowest, when he thinks Aziraphale’s dead and he’s on his way to drink until the world ends, he takes the time to put a new pair on when the old ones are damaged. He needs that emotional crutch right now, even with everything about to turn into a pile of puddling goo he’s not ready for the world to see his eyes. Which is why I swore out loud when Hastur forcibly takes them off. It’s about the worst thing that Hastur could have done. Rather than leading with a physical threat, his first act is to strip away Crowley’s emotional defences. It’s a great writing choice because god it made me hate Hastur, even more than all the physical violence we see him do. It’s also the moment that Crowley really truly gets his shit together, and focuses all of his considerable imagination on getting to Tadfield and Aziraphale to help save the world. He’s wielding the terrifyingly unimaginable power of someone who’s hit rock bottom and realised it literally could not get any worse than this. He doesn’t put another pair of glasses on after discorporating Hastur, and he spends the majority of the airbase sequence without them. He puts them back on again, I think, at the moment that he really lets himself hope. When he thinks ‘shit, there may be a real chance that we get through this to a future that I don’t want to lose’. The vulnerability is back, and he needs Adam to trust him. In Crowley’s mind being accepted by a human means he needs to have his eyes hidden. Someone give the demon a hug, please. Interestingly, there’s only one time in the whole series that we see Crowley willingly choose to take his glasses off around another person. Only one person he’ll take down that barrier for, and even then he’s drunk before he does it. Dear God/Satan/Someone that makes my heart ache. Crowley’s chosen Earth, but he’s also chosen Aziraphale. He’s been looking for somewhere to belong his entire existence, and it’s with the angel that he finally feels it. When the dust settles and the world is saved and they finally have space to be themselves unguarded, I like to imagine Crowley takes off the glasses when it’s just the two of them; the idea of being known doesn’t scare him quite so much anymore.

The Old Ones: pay attention to how people adt when you're not on good terms. You continue to sacrifice her because you have lost yourself. You still call her names based on your sexual desires for her. Subjugate her into positions that masturbate your inherent inferiority complexes. You aren't as great as her, you were born this way, it's okay to admit it. You were her, but your XX became an Xy. The y chromosome signifies that you are a male. She created you not the other way around. She only needs your seed to create life, but you need her for life itself. So you enslave her, mutilate her amongst other males, as you do you rob yourself of your own humanity. You look to men for the infinite answers to life's eternal questions, you believe the ideas of the men that came before you, these men who perpetuated this madness called sexism. Really it's just males who dislocated themselves from their female energies, trying to become whole again. Females are complimentary to males and males to females. But when men created these systems based upon their false ideas of superiority, honestly they were basing this on their real feelings of inferiority. Sisters I wish I could destroy their machines, their weapons and their systems. I will do my best to stop their destructive ways and reestablish the old ones of your nurturing cycles. To create new ways of our endless beauty. If you are against the female you are against yourself and more importantly you are against life herself. Why is it that men cannot see that jokes of women being whores but men being victors make only a fool out of every man reading this. It is for the brothers to awaken those who don't want to share power. Males try to hold on to power for fear of losing it, forgetting that when you share power you double it... chakabars

The Old Ones: Via @carthrottlenews - Honda has revealed the all-new, 10th generation Civic Type R in Geneva - It’s the fifth-generation Civic Type R, and is based on the 10th generation Civic hatchback. Under its vented bonnet lies an evolution of the 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-four from the outgoing model, “optimised” for improved throttle response, and a 10bhp increase. - That leaves the new Type R with 316bhp, plus 295lb ft of torque (unchanged from before). No word on performance stats just yet, nor the weight figure for that matter - but we’re not expecting a drastic change from the 5.7sec 0-62mph time the old one managed. - That 316bhp output is fed exclusively through the front wheels, via a six-speed manual gearbox and although the press release neglects to mention, we’re guessing the setup includes a mechanical limited-slip differential. There’s a new rev matching system too - a nice addition, but we’re hoping there’s an easy way to switch it off for those wanting to indulge in a little heel and toe. - Under the skin you’ll find adaptive dampers and a proper multi-link, independent rear suspension setup. There’s also a new drive mode selector. Where the outgoing car gave you a choice of rather hard ‘normal’ mode and an even harder ‘+R’ setting, the 10th-gen version lets you choose between ‘comfort’, ‘sport’ and ‘+R’. - The aero package is - as I’m sure you’ve gathered - thoroughly bonkers. The epitome of function over form, it goes even further than its predecessor, offering vortex generators, an even smoother underbody, a front ‘air curtain’ and the mother of all rear wings. Downforce figures haven’t been given, but Honda is promising “best-in-class balance between lift and drag”. - We’ll be doing our best to find out more about the new Type R at the Geneva Motor Show, but for now, we’ll leave you with the knowledge that you could be driving one of these hot hatch nutters as soon as the July.
