And the first act is begun...
...and the last my mouth I open'd
I, purple sage in the universal
And I speak in tongue unknown
And behold all stood in flames
(The Universe Illumination by Behemoth)
Anyone who has had their hair colored can relate to Madame Yevonde’s lovely photographs. The image above (depicting the goddess Arethusa on the left, Ceres to the right) rather reminds us of the strange and disturbing ordeal of a partial foil (or a full foil if your hair stylist is feeling extra sadistic…) There is nothing quite like the experience having NOXIOUS BOILING CHEMICALS applied to one’s hair, which is then folded into small sheets of aluminum foil (rather resembling packets of leftovers or an alien abduction experiment) and then placed under a hair dryer for hours on end…You can usually tell when it is over when your scalp begins to SMOLDER.
