what to wear when…in a ukrainian fairy tale.
examples: яйце-райце (the magic egg), бідний Іванко і воронячий цар (the poor man and the raven tsar), кобиляча голова (the mare’s head, a cinderella variant that features a father’s love instead of a prince’s proposal and oksana’s step-sister olena as the false heroine)
a high frequency of animal tales is especially characteristic of the ukrainian repertoire.
ukrainian fairy tales, told in colloquial language, contain a number of formalized expressions that are often rhymed. introductory formulas serve to transport the audience into the fictional time and world of fairy tales.
a frequent formula goes: “in a certain kingdom, in a certain land, there lived…” or “long, long ago, when we did not yet exist…” or “when perhaps our great-grandparents were not in the world…”
a standard conclusion of ukrainian fairy tales ending with a marriage goes: “i was there and drank mead and wine. it ran down my mustache but did not go into my mouth.” [the archetypal hero ivan] is characterized by various epithets [that reflect his parentage, socioeconomic status, or personality].
on the other hand, there are valiant knights (geroi-bogatyri), like ivan the bitch’s son, who are predominantly dragon-slayers. the hero’s helpers are often females, his wife or fiancée, sometimes endowed with supernatural capacities, and baba yaga [one of many characters that appear in both ukrainian and russian fairy tales].
human adversaries are the king, the hero’s uncle, and (especially in ukrainian tales) the pan, the polish landlord.
Suburbia Note Design Studio
"Suburbia is Note:s first collaboration with the Italian producer Seletti. With inspiration from the iconic Uten.Silo by Dorothee Becker for Vitra, Suburbia is a new interpretation of this functional wall storage. We adds a playful and architectonic touch to the product, by creating a small neighbourhood in which every house and object is a pocket with a different functionality. Keep it empty or fill it with your stuff, and see the composition change over time.”
'We saw people flying out the window,' one witness said. The buildings were left in rubble on Park Ave. at East 116th St. At least 11 people were injured, according to the Fire Department. Witnesses said the blaze began Wednesday morning in the Absolute Piano store. Metro-North service was suspended in both directions as Mayor de Blasio went to the scene.
Updates: At least one person killed.
One more confirmed death.
Someone anonymously sent me this ridiculously beautiful video they’d made mashing up Troye Sivan’s amazing song “The Fault in Our Stars” with the movie trailer. I have seen the trailer like two hundred times and heard the song probably a thousand, BUT I STILL CRIED.
p.s. Gentle reminder that if you make stuff like this you do not have to send me large files anonymously; you can submit to the official TFIOS movie tumblr.
