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 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 […]
Rob Goodwin fine leatherworks, couture footwear, accessories and costumes.
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.
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!
Pre-order available at Chelsea Wolfe [dot] net
From Pitchfork Media :: Chelsea Wolfe has shared the intense, unsettling video for her Pain is Beauty track “Feral Love”. It’s an excerpt from the film Long, which was co-written by Wolfe and directed by Mark Pellington, the director of Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video … It’s due out later this year, both as a […]
Born Luisa Adele Rosa Maria Amman in 1881, Marchesa Luisa Casati was the aristocratic darling of the wealthy Italian bohemian set. Married but prone to extravagant love affairs and with a penchant for art, fashion, exotic animals kept indoors, and the occult, Luisa was a woman ahead of her time. Her pale skin and dark makeup, over-the […]
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.
Translated from Latin to mean “valley of death”, Valle Mortis is the latest work from artist Cassie Meder, better known as Casstronaut out here in the ether. Dedicated to her fellow artists, the short film is about taking your struggles and using them to face life head on. Read more in Cassie’s own words about […]
“An extremely rare documentary about Witchcraft aired once in the UK in 1971. Featuring contributions from Eleanor Bone, Cecil Williamson, Alex & Maxine Sanders, Doreen Valiente et al. Very much of its time and with some very rare footage, also includes reference to the famously unsolved murder of Charles Walton on Meon Hill. “
I haven’t had a chance to watch this just yet, but here’s a full length “director’s cut” of the Henson classic, The Dark Crystal. Pieced together by a fan, Christopher Orgeron has spent the last two years restoring a version of the film as Henson originally intended it to be. It’s supposed to be darker, […]
High-fashion meets entomology thanks to French artist Laurent Seroussi. We always love fashion that looks like a exoskeleton, so this seems only fitting.
For your post-Samhain recovery, here’s the full length cut of Häxan : Witchcraft Through the Ages, narrated by William S. Burroughs.
Porcelain sculptures by Kate Macdowell.
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 […]
Histoires Naturelles, photographs by Juliette Bates. More on Behance.
Seoul-based artist Choi Xoo Ang’s incredible grasp of the texture and coloration of human skin lends an uncanny realism to parts of his otherwise surreal clay and resin sculptures. More photos at Empty Kingdom. WARNING: many are NSFW. I know that the rule of thumb is that nude sculpture it is usually OK (even at […]
