flow/er: Synthetic Floral Synethsis by Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir

We’re entranced by this phantasmagorical video created by designers Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir with music by Zelig Sound. Entitled “flow/er“, the experimental CG short barely lasts 30 seconds, but that’s one of the amazing things about dreams. While in the mind of the dreamer they might feel as though they go on forever, as far as our brains are […]

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 […]

Only Lovers Left Alive colorpalettecinema

Savoring the celluloid hues of colorpalette.cinema on Instagram

Color is a uniquely powerful tool in the art of cinematic storytelling. We’re all naturally sensitive to color and its impact doesn’t require our conscious awareness in order to be felt emotionally, psychologically, and even physically.

The Love Witch

The Love Witch

Releasing in theaters next week, The Love Witch‘s trailer had me completely fooled into thinking it was a 1960s Technicolor B film, and I loved every second of it. I’ll be double featuring this along with the new Criterion release of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls as soon as I finish packing on my […]

Atmosphere

We shared this when it first came out a year or so ago, but it’s one of those things that I revisit every few months and continue to be hypnotized by.

New Video Post: Autumn Eyes

Six new rich jewel toned Lip Tars are launching on August 26 at 12AM, EST, along with six loose pigments and glitters. OCC was kind enough to send me the collection to preview for you in this […]

New Video Post! GRWM with Winged Eyeliner Tutorial

New video post! Today I uploaded a simple Get Ready With Me with a little bit of a winged eyeliner tutorial. I messed up my eyeliner a thousand times while filming this, but showed the quickest fix possible in the video otherwise this would have been at least an hour long. This has been my […]

Sweet Transvestite

I have been adamantly opposed to the Rocky Horror remake since the first whispers of it years ago, but I think I may have changed my mind. The new trailer released recently with Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter and Reeve Carney as Riff Raff look like perfect casting, and it also seems no one is trying […]
