“We are indebted to one another and the debt is a kind of faith — a beautiful, difficult, strange faith. We believe each other into being.” That’s the message the philosopher, poet, and historian, Jennifer Michael Hecht, puts at the center of her unusual writing about suicide. She’s traced how Western civilization has, at times, demonized those who died by suicide, and, at times, celebrated it as a moral freedom. She has struggled with suicidal places in her life and lost friends to it. She proposes a new cultural understanding based on our essential need for each other.”

Controversy Over Danish TV Show Featuring Adults Getting Naked In Front Of Children…


Date: September 25, 2020

Thanks to feinmann!

01) Controversy Over Danish TV Show Featuring Adults Getting Naked In Front Of Children

“The show is called Ultra Strips Down and sees grown-up folks getting their kit off in a controlled environment in front of kids between the ages of 11 and 13 in order to show them that there is no such thing as a ‘normal’ or ‘perfect’ human body.

The show claims to “promote body positivity and combat body-shaming” but obviously some people aren’t impressed by it.”


Here is another article, which includes video of the event.

02) Naked adults appear on controversial Danish children’s TV show to debunk ‘perfect body’ myth

“A children’s TV show in Denmark has raised eyebrows after asking adults to pose naked in front of school pupils in a bid to promote body positivity.

On Ultra Strips Down, a live studio of 11 to 13-year-olds watch as five adult guests undress. The children are then encouraged to ask questions about their bodies.

The series host, Jannik Schow, who co-developed the idea with a producer, told The New York Times: “Perhaps some people are like, ‘Oh, my God, they are combining nakedness and kids. But this has nothing to do with sex, it’s about seeing the body as natural, the way kids do.”

Personally, I think this is a very forward thinking practice.

Nobody was hurt by it…The parents agreed to let their children participate in the episode.

The human body is not vulgar.

…We should not condition children to think that it is.

01) lana del rey – young and beautiful (tradução/legendado)


“Letra:

I’ve seen the world, done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant, in Bel-Air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

I’ve seen the world, lit it up
As my stage now
Channeling angels in a new age now
Hot summer days, rock and roll
The way you play for me at your show
And all the ways, I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

Dear lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let him in
Father tell me if you can
All that grace, all that body
All that face, makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful?”

Rag’n’Bone Man – Human (Official Video)…

01) Rag’n’Bone Man – Human (Official Video)


“Rag’n’Bone Man – Human (Lyrics)

Maybe I’m foolish, maybe I’m blind
Thinking I can see through this and see what’s behind
Got no way to prove it so maybe I’m blind

But I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me

Take a look in the mirror and what do you see
Do you see it clearer or are you deceived in what you believe

Cos I’m only human after all, you’re only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me

Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me

Don’t ask my opinion, don’t ask me to lie
Then beg for forgiveness for making you cry, making you cry

Cos I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me, don’t put the blame on me

Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human I make mistakes
I’m only human that’s all it takes to put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me

I’m no prophet or messiah
Should go looking somewhere higher

I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me, don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human I do what I can
I’m just a man, I do what I can
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me”

Sex ed ‘toys’ raise eyebrows in Basel [2011]…

01) Sex ed ‘toys’ raise eyebrows in Basel

“The new materials for the sex ed program are being distributed to 30 primary schools and kindergartens in Basel, containing dolls, puzzles, books and other educational material for 4 to 10-year-olds, and a box with the more explicit materials for older kids, according to the newspaper Blick.

The guide included with the kit instructs kindergarten teachers to “show that contacting body parts can be pleasurable.” It also recommends having children massage each other or to rub themselves with warm sand bags, all accompanied by soft music.

“Children should be encouraged to develop and experience their sexuality in a pleasurable way,” Daniel Schneider, a deputy kindergarten rector for Basel who helped develop the sex ed curriculum along with experts, told the paper.

Thomas Steffen, a school doctor in Basel, told Blick that the taboo around sex and sex ed “is a problem that only adults have.”

01) Michael Jackson: Remember the King


“There are very few artists who have obsessed the world like Michael Jackson did. Now musical royalty, his singles topped the charts all over the globe, selling over 350 million records whilst holding the record for the best selling album of all time.

It was clear, although his success is unrivaled, that he was a troubled man whose bizarre life-style eventually eclipsed his musical talent.

This documentary will cover all aspects of his life, from the Jackson 5 to This Is It, from his humble beginnings to Neverland, and from his abusive father to his alleged abuse cases. Join us as we, remember the king.”
