Edie Beale loved her animals, she used to feed Wonder Bread to raccoons that had taken up residence in the attic (via NY times) of the Grey Garden’s mansion, where she lived with her mother. She would never wear this t-shirt, she was far too glamorous for such a casual item, but the text strongly reminded us of her. (t-shirt available from skreened.com) The photo of Edie Beale was taken by Lois Wright, she lived with the Beales’ for 13 months and wrote a book about that (via robertdarling)
Cricket in a Jar, or crickets as pets if you will. In China the people used (early antiquity) to have crickets for the sound they make. Nowadays they are kept for cricket fighting. They can be bought at the local market. The insects are held in little cups ranging from old cans to embellished “cricket pots” The buyer chooses a cricket by listening to the sound he makes and how it reacts when touched. To activate the little animal it gets pricked with a little stick so the buyer can compare the crickets. The size of the crickets on sale varies as well; tiny ones are held in small boxes containing a single corn, bigger ones in a wooden “cage case”. Chinese cricket culture and cricket-related business is highly seasonal. Trapping crickets in the fields peaks in August and extends into September. Cricket fighting season extends until the end of autumn.
