This is a Russian tampon commercial that goes straight to the point, without using “those difficult days of the month”, “sensitive area” and women being skeptical about going to their office with their beige tight skirts. Perfect for this time of the year!

Suspiria de Profundis

But the owners of Cambiare, a new Italian bar & grill located in Tokyo’s “Golden Gai” district in Shinjuku (a heaven for Tokyo nightlife), have now made their mark with the first club to base their look and design on Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic Suspiria, well-known for its sumptuous sets, innovative lighting and oh so Technicolor blood.

Cambiare just set up their Facebook page this week, so drop by and keep watch for more updates and images.

Illustrations found in Aztec codices (books written by pre-Columbian and colonial-era Aztecs) depicting human sacrifices.
The first is a sacrifice to Tezcatlipoca, the god of Night, the North and Sorcery, a yearly ceremony where a young boy playing music with four flutes was slaughtered at the stairs of a temple outside Tenochtitlan.
Human sacrifice and other forms of torture – self-inflicted or otherwise – were common to many parts of the New World, while the Aztecs in particular have been described as cannibals, sodomites, alcoholics and polygamists.
