tura satana appreciation post. here’s what u need to know:
born in 1938 and died in 2011
her parents were a silent movie actor and a circus performer
she was gang-raped by five men when she was ten. they were never prosecuted and it was rumoured that the judge was paid off.
this prompted her to train in various martial arts (such as aikido and karate)
over the next 15 years, she hunted down each of her rapists and exacted revenge against them. they never even knew who she was until she told them
at the same time, she formed an all-woman gang called “the angeles”
"we had leather motorcycle jackets, jeans and boots and we kicked butt."
moved to los angeles when she was 15 and supported herself
dated elvis presley and turned down a marriage proposal from him
her most famous film role was in 1965, as varla, a “very aggressive and sexual female character”, in faster, pussycat! kill! kill! (a film that was “an ode to female violence”)
tura was responsible for her own costume, makeup, use of martial arts, and much of her dialouge. she also performed all her own stunts and fight scenes
was known for not taking shit from anyone. russ meyer, the director for faster, pussycat! kill!, said of her “[tura was] extremely capable. she knew how to handle herself. don’t fuck with her! and if you have to fuck her, do it well! she might turn on you!”

"Prada Marfa is an artwork initiated by ourselves and realized in a collaboration with the not-for-profit cultural organizations Art Production Fund and Ballroom Marfa in 2005. It was not a work commissioned by the fashion brand Prada nor had the fashion brand any involvement in the creation of this work. They kindly gave us the permission to use their logo after we asked them, due to the founder Muccia Prada’s personal interest in contemporary art, and she donated shoes and bags, which have never been renewed but stay the same – as a historic display – inside the sculpture. The right definition of advertisement must be based on criteria more accurate than just including any sign which contains a logo. It is advertisement only when a company either commissions someone to make such a sign, pays for its execution or makes a sign themselves in order to promote the company’s products.” via
