La Casati, The Selfish Muse- How do people like this fade to obscurity rather than remain forever relevant?

I gained access to an amazing Graphic Novel recently. Europe Comics and Vanna Vinci released a biography about Marchesa Casati. Casati was not a person I was familiar with before reading this work. I was mainly drawn to the artwork seen on the cover and the general premise. As the pages unfolded, I was astounded by how fascinating her story was.

This graphic novel is perfect for those as clueless as me on the subject- Marchesa Luisa Casati was an Italian heiress who squandered her fortune in a whirlwind lifetime of debauchery, extravagance, and artistry that set the stage for modern show women like Madonna and Lady Gaga. Casati was a muse for 100+ painters and artists with a desire to live opulently and without reserve. Live exotic animals, crazy technological and electrified  dresses plugged into the main power grid, expensive and vast housing.
It should be noted that this is probably not the best choice for children as it is filled with lots of nudity.

Unboxing: Globenfeld - Automatic self-winding watch... mostly ;)

---

Based on a free product delivered for review purposes, this review highlights a Globenfeld self-winding Automatic watch. Watch is Rose Gold which is surprisingly manly when worn with office attire. The color grew on me quickly. Is the same basic size and shape as the men’s Fossil watch I have worn for years.
Video was recorded the day the watch was received with a 30ish day later voice over.
This watch is self winding, but can be manually wound with a simple turn of the crown knob. Internal ‘skeleton’ view of the interior through rear panel. Watch dials- 24 hour clock, day by quarter.
Watch keeps time very well but may require periodic time checks if you do not walk enough to retain strong wind. I found it is just easier to give it a manual winding bump nightly when I remove the watch for the night.
After a solid review time frame, this device proves to be very high quality for the price point it is sold at.
