Psyche was a Greek princess who was so beautiful that Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, grew jealous of her. The goddess sent her son, the winged god of love Eros, to strike the young princess with one of his arrows, making her fall unhappily in love. But when Eros saw Psyche, he fell in love with her himself and could not obey his mother. As a gentle breeze he lifted Psyche and carried her to a secluded palace. Eros would come to his beloved every night, after dark; he was very kind and loving and she soon returned his feelings, although she was never allowed to see her lover. The god warned her that he would have to leave her for ever if she sees his face. Later on, Psyche’s sisters came to visit and convinced her that she must see her lover, as he might turn out to be a dangerous monster. So Psyche saw Eros’ face by the light of a candle, while he was sleeping, and discovered that he was not the monster she feared but a magnificent god. After that Eros left her and she was very unhappy. Desperate to bring him back, Psyche went to Aphrodite to ask for her help, but the goddess remained indifferent to her suffering and gave her impossible tasks to fulfill. However, Psyche succeeded in all of them, as Eros was secretly watching over her and helping her. In the end, Zeus decided that the lovers proved their devotion for each other and united them for eternity, granting Psyche immortality. They lived happily ever after and a beautiful child was born to them, whose name was Voluptas (Pleasure).

Nirvana: Realize that you don’t belong to yourself. Neither to the idea people my have about you. A state of liberation from unhappiness. Illumination, characterized by the merging of the individual, transitory I in consciousness. Let go! Universe is constantly changing and so are you.

Few bands in rock history have had a more immediate and tangible impact on their contemporary pop musical landscape than Nirvana did in the early Nineties. When the Seattle trio hit the scene in 1991, mainstream radio was awash in the hair metal of Poison and Def Leppard. But seemingly within hours of the release of Nirvana’s anarchic, angry single “Smells Like Teen Spirit” — and its twisted anti-pep-rally video—the rules had changed. Artifice was devalued; pure, raw emotion was king. [Read more]
There’s something else I’d like to say.
We women are actually very unhappy creatures. It is very hard to survive as a woman.
Why do women have to suffer this much? Isn’t there another path for us? Is there a path at all?
Who can truly answer this question?

I can’t truly answer the question. I can have a belief. There is a path. We need to crack and tag.
In Peter Wollen’s brief but fascinating analysis of the myth, Baubo’s exhibitionism is interpreted as a potential alternative to the castrating display of the medusa: Baubo’s display is no another woman and its effect is to provoke laughter and to end grief and mourning (…) Demeter is shown the “Truth”, but is it a joke? It is not shameful, not horrifying, but funny, comical, laughable.” The laugh, outside the semantic and “on the edge of language”, breaks the hold of a phallogocentric grammar.
Sarah Kofman also interprets Baubo as a figure who resides outside the regime of phallocentrism, undermining its logic. Through a number of links, including the inscription of Dionysu’s face on Baubo’s body, Kofman makes the claim that Baubo is a feminine double of Dionysus. And Dionysus, nude but also the god of masks, “erases the opposition of veiles and non-veiled, masculine and feminine, fetishism and castration.” (…)
The myth of Baubo finds an interesting — and similarly porno-graphic — echo in Lacan’s work.
