Nixon Sixx spent the 1970s learning to walk, talk, see unicorns, and fight the monster under her bed.  I spent the 1980s not getting along with kids my own age, wearing all black, and listening to Ministry.  Not much has changed since then, except the internet was invented.

I occasionally remember to update my other blog, The Devil is in the Details.

Zoetica Haute Macabre Coilhouse

Zoetica hails as a painter, co-founder of Coilhouse Magazine, photographer and cosmonomad. Born in Moscow of Russian and Uighur descent, I was raised by a troupe of gypsy scientists from space, who sold me to an American technological research facility in 1992. After a daring escape I graduated from the LA County High School for the Arts and retreated for study into the underground atelier of much-revered style guru Madame Von Kuntzertag. This was followed by a brief stint at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve traveled the world, gathering art and fashion expertise and am thrice certified as official Finesse Monitor to the Khan throne. I scheme & work on an excess of projects while residing in a secret Angel City den surrounded by mannequins, paint fumes & a nano-companion named Micron.

Clint Catalyst isn’t opposed to the notion of long walks on the beach, though he’s more prone to ADD-addled romps on short tangents…the sum of which, to be fair, has been known to result in an “overshare” of T.M.I. proportions. One might even go so far as to dismiss this hyper-hyphenated individual as the epitome of “tl;dr”, but Catalyst is a proponent of the inverse, as opined by FlowersInMidgar.  Bearing that in mind, this authoractorspoken word performereditormulti-media artistevent hoststyle assassinfashion collaboratorred carpet commentatorpublic nuisancepoet and ‘uberstar’ summarizes his fascination with the subtleties of language—as well as the communicative power of appearance—through his statement that “The pen may be mightier than the sword, but a sharp outfit can slaughter an entire room in one fell swoop.”
