Beautiful Bones

Available at http://www.SkinLux.org In a beauty-obsessed culture where cosmetics are often seen as frivolous acquisitions of store-branded ideals, where the ultimate intention is serving up superficiality, it is most important to remind ourselves that cosmetics are meant to be fun – because no matter the maquillage, authentic beauty will always be produced from within.

The Blood Magic of Noel’le Longhaul

Inspiring inkwork and flash from tattoo artist Noel’le Longhaul of Charon Art in Great Falls, Massachusetts.  Noel’le’s tattoo practice focuses on the ritual nature of the collaboration between artist and client, creating a different sort of tattoo experience from the traditionally masculine-focused American tattoo parlor:  healing, spiritual, and focused. “Tattooing”, she says “is blood magic’.

Fix it: Bleach Spots on Black

Do you ever discover something really basic but amazing and need to share it immediately with everyone? That’s how I feel about Sharpie’s Rub-A-Dub Laundry marker. Best $3 I’ve spent in ages.  Marketed for putting kids’ names in the tags of their T-shirts for camp, the Rub-A-Dub is basically a Sharpie that doesn’t wash out. […]

The Woodcuts of Bryn Perrott

 

Bryn Perrot‘s amazing woodcuts  are my new droolworthy-thing-I-seriously-need.  You can’t really get a sense of scale from the photos, but these are all nice big wall hanging pieces, not wee little rubber stamps. Although they would make AMAZING rubber stamps.

Did I mention that there are pet portraits?

Ensemble of Shadows

Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows has been around as long as I can remember, always busy being weirder than the next band, living somewhere in the space between Diamanda Galas and a terrible nightmare you had after eating dodgy fish and watching Brahm Stoker’s Dracula. Lead singer Anna-Varney Cantodea is one of those […]

New Video Post- Museum of Osteology!

For years now I’ve been meaning to visit Oklahoma City’s Skulls Unlimited, one of the largest retailers or real and replica bones in the world. After all, I had been talking to those guys on the phone on and off the whole 18 years I worked at The Bone Room.  Recently they opened their own […]
