Fashion designers abandoning fur






“I am pleased to announce that the Armani Group has made a firm commitment to abolish the use of animal fur in its collections,” 



 “Technological progress made over the years allows us to have valid alternatives at our disposition that render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals. Pursuing the positive process undertaken long ago, my company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals.”


Armani has been working with the Humane Society International, as well as The Fur Free Alliance (a coalition of 40 animal protection organisations in 28 countries).



In Armani halting his use of fur, the designer follows in the footsteps of Hugo Boss,  which agreed to stop in July 2015. While fashion’s use of the material has long been a subject of controversy, it seems that more and more brands – including Calvin KleinTommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren – are also quitting.


Marc Bouwer, Stella McCartney, Charlotte Ronson, Vivienne Westwood, Joshua Katcher (Brave Gentlemen), Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart (Vaute  Couture) and John Bartlett... are already fur-free. 


Last year the fur trade was worth more than $40 billion (£24 billion) with brands such as Fendi

PETA ads controversial as always. Strikes attention.

Isn't that special...
though very well filmed and acted. 
Joel Edgerton, Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Sam Shepard... and Alton, the boy with special powers Jaeden Lieberher

Perhaps Hollywood's mind set 
of letting us make
believe in family ties, neutral aliens, devious sects and humane NSA people.

Shot by my daughter



Two of my favorite pics. 
My daughter shot me 
when life was sweet. 
Little did I know... 
Ignorance 
is definitely NOT bliss
 in retrospect!

Love and do it relentlessly. 
Laugh a lot. 
Find the light side of life.
 Strive to be non-judgmental. 
Your most valuable assets 
are the intangible.

The Revenant


The Revenant

What a bore!
Too looonggg!!!
2 hours 36 minutes. 

Oops! Don't read more 
if you are heading to watch it. 
My text includes spoilers!!!

Not accurate with historical details
and too many make-up bloopers

Check your editing!

Beautiful cinematography
by Lubezki
noticable 
for its own sake. 
Still I wasn't looking for
a National Geographic documentary. 


DiCaprio grunts and breaths his way through the movie. Claimed vegetarian he choose to eat the raw bison liver for real. A devotion to the arts that rendered him the Oscar?

Based LOOSELY on the legend of trapper Hugh Glass who didn't have a son nor registered ever to have been married to anyone. Female, Indian or whatever
Though Glass was captured and lived with a Pawnee tribe for some years.  

Glass did survive a grizzly bear attack
(with the help of fellow trappers). Fitzgerald and young Bridger volunteered to look after him. 
But both abandoned him for dead. 

Clichées. 
So the Frenchies are two-tongued drunkards and rapists. 
The Indian females wise and castrating. 
Indians either victims if they are good or bipolar if they are bad. 
And the trappers/militaries are human scum without conscience or good-hearted in vain. 

Violence and nature as a force in winter.

(Though IRL Glass was attacked in May
- no snow, in an area without high mountains...) 

Well, I laughed when I shouldn't 
waiting for each unbelievable disaster after another 
to strike Glass/DiCaprio. 
Getting annoyed over the bad cuts where he has dirty teeth and seconds later shiny, messy hair/neat hair... The moon shifting unrealistically (though the movie is said to be shit, sorry, shot chronologically the editor seems to have had a fieldday.)

Well it's a full circle movie. 
The bear is taken down the way Fitzgerald meets his fate. 
While Glass wears bearskin for protection and grunts 
until the "grand finale".

In this time with climate awareness some minor moves are also attempts to see nature as a healer and the Indian culture as sage in the wild. 

A movie based on the revenge-theme bringing a man to become a reverant and rise above physical difficulties 
who IRL never took any. 
He freed Bridger from responsibility,
 retrieved his Hawkan rifle 
from Fitzgerald 
and saved him 
from hanging for treason 
but never spoke to him again. 
Glass died ten years later 1833 on the Yellowstone River under an attack by the Arikara

Quote:
Fitzgerald:
 "It turns out God is a squirrel. 
A big fat meaty one. 
And I shot and ate that son of a bitch."
