The Doctor is In

Dr Marten Bosch

In my what seems to be an annual hunt for Boots That I Cannot Kill, I fell into a rabbit hole of Dr Martens boots. It felt like the early 1990s and 14 year old me almost got a hold of my credit card, but sadly the Magnum Opus of their stock was already sold out: the Hieronymous Bosch collection with prints of the ultimate surrealist’s Heaven and Hell on the boots, bags, and oxfords. I’ve now got eBay alerts set up for any of the line to show up in my size, but I think they will exist only in my fetishistic dreams.

Instead, I’ve narrowed it down to these styles, with Persephone in the lead.

I haven’t owned a pair of Docs since middle school, so I honestly cannot remember if they’re the most comfortable and durable things ever or if they’re the worst thing since bondage pants (seriously now, we ALL tripped over those straps at least once). Anyone out there walking for miles in these daily?

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot

Inspired by everyday magic and the wisdom of nature, The Pagan Otherworlds Tarot project is currently crowd funding its campaign on Kickstarter.

Created from hand-painted images based on Uusi’s popular playing card decks, creative team Linnea Gits and Peter Dunham use oil paints and calligraphy to convey their interpretation of the tarot’s symbols and narratives.

With a series of rewards including decks of the tarot and poker playing cards, uncut sheets of the designs, display stands, cypress storage boxes, and more, this project is surely worth the contributions. Reserve your rewards by contributing to the Kickstarter Campaign now.
