4 Deathhacks for an Egyptian Mummy Mummy brown was a rich brown pigment made from the ground-up remains of Egyptian mummies. It became popular in the 16th century and was one of the favorite colors of the Pre-Raphaelites artists. Color-makers used Egyptian mummies because of the bitumen that ancient Egyptians used in the embalming process. Artists believed that when bitumen and mummified flesh were used in oil paint it wouldn’t crack or dry. Picture of a man selling mummies ca 1875.

1920, 6 days until Prohibition - The ratification of 18th Amend. to the U.S. Constitution, which banned manufacture, transport and sale of liquor. The result of a widespread temperance movement during the first of the 20th century, Prohibition was difficult to enforce. The increase of the illegal production/sale of liquor (bootlegging), the proliferation of speakeasies (illegal drinking spots) and the rise in gang violence led to waning support for Prohibition by the end of the 1920s.

Joanie Labine, the first female DJ at the Whiskey... The Sunset Strip Whisky was founded by Elmer Valentine, Mario Maglieri, Phil Tanzini, Shelly Davis, and attorney Theodore Flier. Though the club was billed as a discothèque, suggesting that it offered only recorded music, the Whisky a Go Go opened with a live band led by Johnny Rivers and a short-skirted Joanie spinning records between sets from a suspended cage at the right of the stage.
