Twin Peaks

She’s Filled With Secrets :: Twin Peaks The Entire Mystery

CBS is finally releasing Twin Peaks on Blu-Ray, along with nearly 90 minutes of previously unreleased footage, along with a new promotional Tumblr. I’m a bit beside myself with excitement. Pre-Order available on Amazon (first thing I did this morning, before even getting out of bed).

Les Diableries

Les Diableres, a series of more than 70 stereoscopic photographs  published in Paris in the 1860’s. Featuring the work of several different sculptors, the images of intricate clay dioramas depicted scenes from Hell. Meant to me viewed through a stereoscope for a 3D effect, many were hand colored and in some cases the eyes of the […]

Harpya

Raoul Servais’ 1979 surreal short Harpya, which I could try to explain, but instead I’ll just post  it here. Let’s just say that harpies are not ideal roommates.

Bare Handed

Found on Tumblr, couldn’t find any shop or artist information. Anyone know who did this? It’s amazing! **Edited to add :: You guys have spoken, and we agree, it’s definitely a Photoshop job. Still such a neat idea, though!

Haute Macabre Approved: Marchesa Luisa Casati

Born Luisa Adele Rosa Maria Amman in 1881, Marchesa Luisa Casati was the aristocratic darling of the wealthy Italian bohemian set.

The Rothschild Ball

Amazing vintage photos from the 1972 Rothschild Surrealist Ball, an elite gathering of the ultra wealthy and really, really bizarre. Rumored to have connections to the Illuminati and the “occult elite”, the parties thrown by  this particular group of friends may have been some of the inspiration behind Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

Hat Trick

  You know what we don’t post nearly enough of? Hats. Why? Because it’s hard to find a good hat (especially for me, my head is so little hats always make me look like a five-year-old playing dress up).  And no, I’m not talking about tiny top hats with cogs glued to them  or fluffy […]
