Playing With Death: The Morbid Curiosity Game

Death can be a tricky subject to discuss, even for those of us more morbidly-minded than most. It’s also endlessly, irresistibly fascinating and affects every single one of us. As our beloved Caitlin Doughty often reminds us, ignoring topics that frighten or make us uncomfortable only makes them scarier, whereas openly talking about them brings […]

Here Lies - Kieran Crowder

Kieran Crowder ‘Liberates’ Ashes, Makes Art

This past weekend, a very unique exhibit was on display at Turner Fine Arts in Birmingham. Here Lies is the result of over thirty years’ work and incorporates ashes “acquired from a crematorium the artist worked at when he was a teenager in the 1970s,” according to the art gallery’s description. For those unfamiliar with […]

Artist, Chemist, Goofball: Catching Up With Tyler Thrasher

When I was in the sixth grade and it was the dreaded Science Fair projects time of the year (did everyone hate this as much as I did? Or was a just a really awful student?) my grandfather hit upon the grand idea that we were going to grow crystals in both salt solutions and sugar […]

Twin Peaks Black Lodge

Going Home to Twin Peaks

I’ve lived in the PNW for nearly 17 years, first in Seattle and now in Portland. But no matter how long one lives in a place, conversation eventually turns to where you lived might’ve lived before, which then glances over its shoulder and asks how you came to live where you do now. My answer […]

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s American Gods + A Giveaway!

During the course of a recent flight to the West Coast, I had the pleasure of re-reading Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and was again treated to one of my very favorite passages in all literature, of all time, ever. “The house smelled musty and damp, and a little sweet, as if it were haunted by the […]

The Mysteries of Cimetière de Montmartre

The other week I had the pleasure of again visiting Paris, one of my most favorite places in the world — partly, I think, because it expects you to earn its love. Paris is like me, or like how I prefer to think of myself: challenging, but worth exploring. It doesn’t require patience so much […]

Agnieszka Osipa: Fashion Where Slavic Folklore Reigns

Agnieszka Osipa: Fashion Where Slavic Folklore Reigns

Polish designer Agnieszka Osipa’s creations feel like home to me, embodying a sort of feral holiness I associate with Slavic folklore and imagery. Its grand and decadent but wild, refined yet chaotic — her fashion often inseparable from the moody, atmospheric dreamscapes she creates with her photographers. Each image is uniquely powerful, with intricate beading […]

The Imaginative Olfactive Magics of Solstice Scents + A Giveaway!

My obsession with scented magics started early in life. If my mother were still around, I’d remind her of the times I used to sneak into her bedroom while she was elsewhere in the house. Slinking over to her vanity, I would fondle the fragrance bottles within reach of my stubby little arms, spritzing and spraying and […]

I’m mentally preparing myself for a no-buy month of May, so I’m of course tempting fate by putting together this wish list on DollsKill. Current Mood Detroit Boots I think I might be completely obsessed with these, and if they’re still available in June, they’re mine. They make me think of all of the New […]
