Excercise In Black
In my dreams, a spokesperson for BARBARA í GONGINI comes to my and says ‘Katie, we think you’re cool as fuck and want to give you one of every item we make and review them on your awesome blog.’ Then I wake up, realize it’s not real and that it’s back to the bobbled New Look dresses and holey band tops. I’m much obsessed with their new jogging selection and feel that if I had these, then life…
Cyclic Press & Krist Mort
I smiled to myself when I heard the news that the phenomenal Cyclic Law Records had established a new publishing division. Cylic Press opened up the company with a publication from Austrian artist Krist Mort. The publication entitled ‘Inlumaeh‘ features 90 pages of photography and an exclusive CD from Russian project Lamia Vox.
Leather Monkey Skulls
Where the idea for leather monkey skull bags came from I have absolutely no idea. I never would have thought about carrying my fistfuls of change and notes scribbled on receipts in a monkey skull, but hey. Heathen Clothing is the store where you can get your paws on of these deliciously weird over-the-shoulder bags. They also do freaky as fuck leather monkey masks too.
Rabbit’s In Masks & A Dead Doe
Oh the fuck k. Darla Jackson may I ask where the fuck you have been when I’ve had money in my pocket? My heart is currently hanging out through the hole it burst through right now. If I had just one of Jackson’s handmade animal sculptures I’d never have to leave the house again or engage with another human being.
A flash fiction piece from my upcoming book ‘In the hours of Darkness – writings about death and dying.’
I feed you a handful of pancakes and kiss the white, silky top of your head, while you carefully munch. The pancakes are soft, they have to be, and you make so little noise. I remember our first kiss, between the wires of the cage you were in at the adoption centre. You were still…
In The Spine
It’s no secret that I am kind of a lot in love with Dellamorte & Co. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve featured their wares on this blog. They’re the sort of store where I would, quite literally, buy every single thing. I think they could work a bit on their presentation with the products as it normally doesn’t do the product justice. Anyway, these candle stick holders are on my ‘future…
Animal Skeleton Pillows
‘Come on over and check out my room. I have pillows with animal skeletons on them…’ is what I would say if I had these beauties casually strewn across my bed. Who would have thought that someone would one day think, ‘you know what? I’m going to make a pillow with the skeleton of a howling wolf on it.’ Well, Myrte Museefrom the Netherlands did. She’s inspired by natural history and the…
