Mental Case Instructables - Make, How To, and DIY Kimono DIY I’ve been seeing kimonos everywhere, so I decided to try a Kimono DIY! Turns out it’s pretty simple. Just 5-8 seams…depending on if you want to leave any of the edges raw. The best kimono I own was purchased at Prism Boutique in Long Beach. Dayna’s got an amazing selection of kimonos and the one I bought has the softest fabric and prettiest pattern. Okay, on to the DIY step by step instructions! Cut the fabric in half lengthwise and the fold it in half. Pin the right sides together half way down and sew them together. I like to finish it with a french seam (which just means folding the edges in on each other so they don’t fray). Pin and hem both of the open sides. Fold your fabric in half (right sides together) with the seam in the middle. I decided to leave my arm holes raw since the selvage won’t fray, but you can sew a seam here if you want. You can also leave the hem around the bottom raw or finish with a trim.

Irreversibel (Film) Irreversibel ist ein französischer Film von Gaspar Noé aus dem Jahr 2002. Er gilt als verstörend und wird kontrovers diskutiert, nicht zuletzt wegen der expliziten Darstellung einer Vergewaltigung mit brutaler Gewaltanwendung sowie eines Rachemordes. Die Hauptpersonen sind Alex, ihr derzeitiger Freund Marcus und Alex’ Ex-Freund Pierre. Alex hat erfahren, dass sie schwanger ist, ihren beiden Freunden jedoch noch nicht davon berichtet. Die drei wollen feiern, doch nach einer Auseinandersetzung mit Marcus verlässt Alex die Party. Die Filmhandlung läuft in umgekehrter Chronologie ab und beginnt mit dem zuletzt geschilderten Mord am vermeintlichen Vergewaltiger. Irreversibel beginnt mit dem Abspann, dessen Text rückwärts läuft. Die einzelnen Szenen sind scheinbar ohne Zwischenschnitt gedreht. „[Der Film] erschöpft sich in delirierenden und voyeuristischen Bildern. „Dennoch: Noés Film ist keineswegs ohne Qualität, sondern dramaturgisch hochinteressant und durchweg brillant gespielt.

Hundert Jahre Einsamkeit Hundert Jahre Einsamkeit (spanischer Originaltitel: Cien años de soledad) ist ein Roman des kolumbianischen Autors Gabriel García Márquez, der 1982 den Nobelpreis für Literatur erhielt. Bedeutung[Bearbeiten] Seit der Erstveröffentlichung 1967 in Buenos Aires wurden weltweit über 30 Millionen Exemplare verkauft. Der Roman wurde in 35 Sprachen übersetzt und gilt als eines der wichtigsten Werke des Magischen Realismus sowie der lateinamerikanischen Literatur überhaupt. Der Autor selbst behauptet, es keineswegs für sein bestes Werk zu halten, doch die lange Entstehungsgeschichte, wie sie u.a. in der García-Márquez-Biographie von Juri Paporow (siehe unter Quellen) beschrieben wird, deutet darauf hin, dass der Autor es als sein magnum opus ansieht. Handlung[Bearbeiten] Der Roman Hundert Jahre Einsamkeit begleitet sechs Generationen der Familie Buendía und hundert Jahre wirklichen Lebens in der fiktiven Welt von Macondo. 1. 2. 3. 4.
