THE SCOTT C SHOP is now LIVE! A place where you can find all Scott C sorts of stuff.  A place where you can have the ULTIMATE SCOTT C SHOPPING SPREE whenever you want!  I am so excited for you guys!  You are going to have a blast!

Were you really wanting that Giving Out Zaps print from last year?  We got it!  Were you wondering where the heck you could get that big Great Showdowns print or the Cosmos print??  They are here.  Or perhaps the Slayer print slipped through your fingers.  I’ll bet you didn’t even know about this Ghost Tote to put all your stuff in. Oh, man, so many things for you!

I will be putting new prints and merchandise into this store as much as i can.  Just when things come up, i will put them in here.  I will also put special AP prints from past sold out runs up on here at random times.  I will announce when i will do that though, probably on twitter.  Don’t worry.

So this is it!  i hope you enjoy it!

I’ve also redesigned PyramidCar.com if you want to see.

I’ve seen this image going around, and I feel compelled to point out that it’s only half-right. It’s true that high heels were originally a masculine fashion, but they weren’t originally worn by butchers - nor for any other utilitarian purpose, for that matter.
High heels were worn by men for exactly the same reason they’re worn by women today: to display one’s legs to best effect. Until quite recently, shapely, well-toned calves and thighs were regarded as an absolute prerequisite for male attractiveness. That’s why you see so many paintings of famous men framed to show off their legs - like this one of George Washington displaying his fantastic calves:

… or this one of Louis XIV of France rocking a fabulous pair of red platform heels (check out those thighs!):

… or even this one of Charles I of England showing off his high-heeled riding boots - note, again, the visual emphasis on his well-formed calves:

In summary: were high heels originally worn by men? Yes. Were they worn to keep blood off their feet? No at all - they were worn for the same reason they’re worn today: to look fabulous.

so then how did they become a solo feminine item of attire?

A variety of reasons. In France, for example, high heels fell out out of favour in the court of Napoleon due to their association with aristocratic decadence, while in England, the more conservative fashions of the Victorian era regarded it as indecent for a man to openly display his calves.
But then, fashions come and go. The real question is why heels never came back into fashion for men - and that can be laid squarely at the feet of institutionalised homophobia. Essentially, heels for men were never revived because, by the early 20th Century, sexually provocative attire for men had come to be associated with homosexuality; the resulting moral panic ushered in an era of drab, blocky, fully concealing menswear in which a well-turned calf simply had no place - a setback from which men’s fashion has yet to fully recover.

FASHION HISTORY IS HUMAN HISTORY OK

Thank you, history side of tumblr. That “stay out of blood” thing has been driving me mad.

fuckING HELL

Play number 3, “The transfer student is a robot”.  The robot brings an energy pack to school instead of eating lunch.  He is bullied relentlessly for this and other things.  His father created him in the image of his dead son (and the mother is dead too).  One day at school his energy pack was stolen from him by the group bullying him.  He’s running out of energy.  His father comes into school, tries to talk to him after getting the energy box back………..

and then he refuses it and dies.  They end the play by talking about the problem of bullying
