Wonder Woman – Moral of the Story

Jun 19, 2017

If there is one movie worthy of being the world wide box office champ this year, it’s the new Wonder Woman hit.

I talked about the movie on my Metro Radio show that aired at 9:00 AM Monday Beijing time, because I wanted an opportunity to reflect on the depth of the story, especially the dialogue between Diana (Wonder Woman) and the god of war, Ares.

People tend to generalize. Even when they know that traits usually don’t apply to an entire race/religion/country, they do it because it’s easier for the brain. The brain generalizes to form opinions easily and quickly. It’s an evolutionary consequence.

Ares asked Diana to see the evil in humans, to consider the war they have raged against each other. He asks Diana to realize that humans are not deserving of her help, that they have brought disaster upon themselves and that they deserve to be annihilated.

After wavering, Diana says my favorite lines of this movie, she essentially says that no one is absolutely good or evil, there’s a little bit of both in all of us. It’s not about “deserve”, it’s about what you believe.

Although what Ares said was convincing, because the empirical evidence was that humans were doing every inhumane thing possible to hurt each other, he generalizes this behavior to all humans at all times. He implies that we are incapable of love and peace. Of course, Steve Trevor, Diana’s love interest is the epitome of just that – the good side of people. And so the moral of the story was conveyed effectively.

This is why I love this film. The average superhero movie can deliver on cinematography, but rarely tells such a thought-provoking story.

Festival Outfit Ideas

Apr 19, 2017

Here are our style ideas for Coachella and all the best music festivals. This year, you will also see these trends overflowing into the streets

 

Show Your Skivvies

Many designers have made their lingerie wearable by lining them or adding embroideries in all the right places.

White Lingerie Set

Lacey ensembles are perfect for a romantic Bohemian look. Choose a white set to look fresh in the desert heat.

New lingerie ensembles from this season that would do great for this look.

Put a maxi skirt or jean shorts over the bodysuit to make a tucked-in illusion. Your “top” will never shift or come out as you dance away.

Below are this season’s newest bodysuits, made for this look.
