DAME IT! SREYASHI 8th September, 2019
Who on whom?
• This clip was released by the National Sound Library of Mexico in June this year,
and they believe it to be the first known voice recording of X, taken from a radio
show which aired after her death in 1954.
• Here’s a bit of what you hear, in English:
• “With an Asiatic head from which dark hair grows, so thin and fine that it appears to
float in the air, […] is an overgrown boy, huge, with a friendly face and a slightly sad
gaze. His bulging, dark, hugely intelligent, large eyes find it hard to stop moving—
almost out of orbit—with their swollen, protruding, toad-like eyelids, which are set
very far apart, more than others' eyes. Because of them, his gaze encompasses a much
wider field of vision, as though they were built especially for a painter of spaces and
crowds. Between those eyes, so far apart from one another, one perceives an invisible
oriental wisdom, and very rarely does the ironic and tender smile, flower of his image,
disappear from his Buddhic mouth, from his fleshy lips.”

X is a product of the ‘big hair’ era and was developed in 1960 by
Margaret Vinci Heldt of Elmhurst, Illinois, who had been asked by
the editors of Modern Beauty Salon magazine to design a new
hairstyle that would reflect the coming decade. The X became an
iconic style and remains an enduring symbol of 1960s kitsch and
was also known as the B-52 .
Y is inarguably one of the most iconic wearers of a X, Y had waist-
length brown hair, but she got the idea to put it in a X at her
senior prom. Apparently, she liked the look enough to make it her
thing for decades to come and even uses, as revealed by her
husband, blue dye no. 56, stating "She’s been gray as a mule since
she was seventeen."

• These glamorous women have in the past performed 'demanding'

not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with
modern day social norms”.

X, similarly skilled, is deeply embedded in the parallel constituency in

What did Zelda create?
• Zelda Wynn Valdes was a major design talent of
the 1940s, best known for her skill in highlighting
the female body. Her curve-hugging creations were
worn and loved by a host of Hollywood's biggest
stars, including Joyce Bryant, Dorothy Dandridge,
Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald and Mae West.
• The Pennsylvania-native's key role in glamorizing
these women caught the attention of a famous
man and he commissioned Zelda to design a
certain line of costumes. And history has proven,
the low-cut, skin-tight, outfits are an iconic mark of
allurement, forever ingrained in pop culture.

Who or what was Looty?
• In the 1860s, in a classic clash of the East and the West, one royal
family’s property was looted and plundered and the most precious
items presented to another royal family. One of them was in fact
given the name, Looty (zero sense of irony?).
• Looty was the first of its kind to be introduced to the Western world,
and soon became wildly popular, an object of desire and a symbol of
class. So much so that Agatha Christie’s ‘The Nemean Lion’ (from ‘The
Labours of Hercules’) revolved around the abduction of one of Looty’s
descendants. When the story was first published in the US, it was, in
fact, called ‘The Case of the Kidnapped ________’.

What was Trump referring to?
• In April 2017, when Donald Trump creatively expanded an acronym

of what Trump was describing has historically gone by feminine
nicknames, such as Betty, Mimi, and Bertha, though they’re
associated with something that sees very little ‘active’ participation
from women.

What’s the term coined by Mulvey?
• This term could be called a ‘gendered’ combination of scopophilia

‘Being and Nothingness’.
• It was coined by film critic Laura Mulvey, who talked about three
perspectives – a) From behind the camera, b) from the cinematic
representations within the film, and c) from the spectator.
• If ‘Rear Window’ is an example used by Mulvey to illustrate the term,
‘Rebecca’ and modern chick-flicks could be used as examples of an
opposing term.

His bulging, dark, hugely intelligent, large eyes find it hard to stop moving— almost out of orbit—with their swollen, protruding, toad-like eyelids, which are set very far apart, more than others' eyes. Because of them, his gaze encompasses a much wider field of vision, as though they were built especially for a painter of spaces and crowds. Between those eyes, so far apart from one another, one perceives an invisible oriental wisdom, and very rarely does the ironic and tender smile, flower of his image, disappear from his Buddhic mouth, from his fleshy lips.” 10 DAME IT!
