Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.
"keep abortion legal"
"If she says no, it’s rape"
"Pro fucking choice"
This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.
But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.
Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

Daft Punk’s Original Helmet Sculptures
From Brian Cox, SFX designer:
A couple of interesting things in these original design notes: First, on Thomas’ helmet, you can see there were supposed to be a small set of “UV” meter LEDs on the collar. The mechanical collar idea never made it into the final product, so obviously this feature didn’t either, although the circuit and PCBs were fabricated and stuffed.
Funny but true: the ear piece is actually the bottom of a Pepsi can! Kind of obvious when you see it in the raw clay.
On Guy’s helmet, the original plan called for as many as ten colored segments. But practicality won out and we went with eight, since all our pre-designed chaser circuits were 8-bit.
The notes for Guy’s “UV” meter circuit board and other auxiliary light are nearly exact to the final product, including the “kill these” notes on the hidden LEDs.
