Genius, Provocateur, Legend: “McQueen”

When you love something that you consider sacred and beautiful, it’s sometimes difficult…baffling, almost… to believe that other people don’t actually have a clue as to what you’re babbling about when you blather on and on about this wondrous thing you adore. That sounds terribly presumptuous, doesn’t it? That our obsessions and fascinations shine so […]

Elsa Lanchester, Herself (Interview And Book Giveaway)

It’s hard to know when imagery so striking, so wonderfully eerie, so utterly iconoclastic as the one presented by Elsa Lanchester as The Bride of Frankenstein, first becomes embedded in one’s memory. When was I not aware of this astonishing creature, this electric-tressed beauty, robed in ghostly whites and the most elegant bandages ever glimpsed […]

Anouk Wipprecht’s Spider Dress: Robotic Arachnid Guardian Chic

Today we’re coveting the most recent version of Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht‘s fabulous Spider Dress (here’s the first). We remember when it first debuted back in 2015, but when isn’t reactive robotic futuristic spider couture relevant? Wipprecht’s arresting 3D-printed mechatronic design reacts to the respiration of its wearer and movements of nearby people using Intel’s Edison […]

Aural Fixation: March 2018

S. Elizabeth Dead Magic by Anna Von Hausswolff  Anna Von Hausswolff’s music, has, to me at least, always sounded like the decadent pipe organs from Catholic mass that have somehow gone a bit weird and spacey and menacing. There’s more of of that sort of thing on Dead Magic, along with gloomy incantations, raw, rapturous […]

Stacked March 2018

shelfie via @samanthamacabre S. Elizabeth Difficult Women by Roxane Gay I’m interested by Roxane Gay’s choice of words with regard to the titular “difficult” women. These are stories of complex, complicated women, for sure. Traumatized women in most, cases, if not all. Violence, abuse, betrayal; agony, anger, helplessness, hopelessness–these themes weave throughout the stories, a […]
