Sailor Moon merch re-stock and amazing window display at the ITSUDEMO store in Shibuya. *_* I took these pics today but the re-stock started about a week ago.
AGH. I get so frustrated when I see things like a Harry Potter world opening in Osaka or this Sailor Moon merch heaven in Shibuya when I NO LONGER LIVE THERE. Where were you when I lived in Japan??!! Were you hiding from me??!!!!!!! Such angst.

Alain Bellino was born in Nice in 1955. In the 80’s, he discovered the world of metal and ornamentation in his father’s workshop where he learnt gold and silver plating and bronze restoration.
After many years of practice and technical research dedicated to rehabilitating and re-composing objects, he engaged in an artistic way around 2010. The ornament that is torn from its original support then becomes the very structure of his sculptures.
Bronze ornamentations assembled by extremely precise welding are the base material. Weighted with the nobility of the material joined to their own history, they support a fragmented memory and they bring to the sculptor a precious help as well as a constraint.
Alain Bellino gets special inspiration from the Renaissance period. Vanitas are one of his favourite themes, typical of classical sceneries.
In his work of re-directing and re-assembling, which is both iconoclast and highly rigorous from a formal point of view, at the crossroads between past and future, Alain Bellino sublimates and rehabilitates the ornamentation.
YES SAURON, LORD OF MORDOR, WILL HAVE THE HERB CRUSTED SALMON FILET PLEASE.
AND THIS IS SAURON’S CHEAT DAY SO SAURON WILL TREAT HIMSELF TO THE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY TRUFFLE CHEESECAKE.

The “c” was added in words like “scent,” “science,” etc., to make them more like Latin words like “scissor” (which is spelled that way because its pre-Latin roots were pronounced with a hard “k” sound), mostly in the 1600’s. It was originally spelled without the “c.”
So that’s my case for regarding the “c” as the silent letter in “scent.”
