A Walk Among The Tombstones

VAV!/October 23, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye "A Walk Among the Tombstones" is classic paperback crime noir. Based on the Matthew Scudder series by Lawrence Block, the film blends several of the novels but focuses on the 1992 novel of the same name. Scudder's story began back in the '70s as a paperback crime noir series that eventually caught on with fans and survived past what the author thought might be its' end. Matthew Scudder is a private eye who quits his job as a former New York Police Department (NYPD) officer after he accidentally killed a young girl while in pursuit of robbery suspects. A recovering alcoholic, Scudder does a "favor" for a local drug dealer whose wife has gone missing and soon finds out that it is so much more. It seems that a kidnapper killed the wife even before they had offered to exchange her for a ransom. Scudder was at first reluctant to get involved with the drug dealer, though the man is willing to pay. But, after doing some research, Scudder finds the wife was dismembered and cut into small pieces and he decides to get the bottom of the case. Meanwhile, he takes on a young protégé, TJ, who needs a new life instead of one on the street.

 

Halloween

Pictured above: The Haunted Lane/ c1889/LOC VAV!/October 22, 2014 The black as night holiday, Halloween, is celebrated on October 31.  Otherwise known as Hallowe'en, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, Halloween is the time of year when children and adults dress as ghosts, scarecrows, vampires, princesses, or their favorite cartoon character and forage into the night, ringing doorbells and knocking on doors.  While visions of ghastly ghouls, witches, pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns and hobgoblins dance mysteriously before the celebrant's eyes, they sing out 'trick or treat' in anticipation of the candy that will most certainly fill the bags they carry. While trick or treaters comb the streets today, a succession of Halloween parades unfold elsewhere in cities and towns and Halloween parties take the night with the bobbing of apples and carving out of pumpkins by roaring bon fires! While today, Halloween is an evening of gaiety, that was not always so.  During the 19th century and a greater part of the 20th century, Halloween earned a bad rap as rogues of ne'er do wells and trouble makers roamed the countryside and city raising a not so welcome raucous. Merrymakers began dressing in imitation of evil spirits and ghastly creatures all while performing mischief making activities in exchange for food and drink...a practice called mumming. From this, trick or treating evolved.  For the greater part, the tricks were harmless, but others engaged in a more serious endeavor of vandalizing homes and businesses. As a result, it was not unusual to find a special police force put in place for the sole purpose of patrolling throughout the evening

Eyeliner History, How To And Eyeliner Tips

VAV!/October 14, 2014 Looking into history, as far back as ancient civilizations, eyeliner, makeup applied to enhance the eyes and give definition, is applied around the contours of the eyes.  Eyeliner has been worn by not only women but by men, as well. In 10,000 BC, Ancient Egyptians, both aristocracy and the lower classes, were adroit in their knowledge of cosmetics... used not only for aesthetics and  for protection from the harsh elements as well as protection from myths and cultural beliefs to include the 'evil eye'. The broad and heavily lined eyes, both upper and the lower rims, were lined using a small stick dipped into a paste made of mineral blends produced from a myriad of materials, including lead and copper ore to varieties of metallics and water.  From these elements, a paste was formed through a grinding process using a vessel known as a Kohl pot. The paste was then applied to the eyes..
