Swedish Funeral Candy
My newest blog discovery is Nourishing Death, from Death Salon’s Social Media Editor, Sarah Elizabeth Troop, and Bruno Huerta, whose bio says he founded something with the amazing name of The Paranthropologic Society for Anomalous Exploration, so I’m pretty sure we’d be friends.
Nourishing Death bills itself as “An Examination of the Relationship Between Food and Death in Rituals, Culture, Religion and Society.” Basically, it’s a blog about death and food and the roles food plays in our death rituals- and it comes with lots and lots of recipes for things like Irish Wake Cake, Resurrection Rolls, and Fave Dei Morti. Now here’s a cooking site I can get behind…

While we don’t too often report the news here at Haute Macabre, sometimes we just have to. Especially when the news involves Vivienne Westwood driving a frikkin’ tank. In a recent anti-fracking protest, the First Lady of Alternative Fashion DROVE A FRIKKIN TANK to UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s house, and looked amazing doing it (OK, actually I think she just rode it while someone else drove it, but still). Holy crap, I cannot love this woman any more than I already do.
With Sam’s help, I venture into the wilds of YouTube to bring you a riveting tale of long-wear lipstick vs. my morning cup of coffee (and me vs. which way the camera goes).
The lipsticks we used for the video were:
Sephora Lip Stain $14, “Marvelous Mauve”
MAC Pro Longwear, $25, “Jazz-yRazz”
Maybelline SuperStay 24,$8.99 “Infinte Petal”
Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede, $8.59 “Preview”
And look, I made you this handy chart. Because pentagrams are really just stars doing cartwheels.
