If You're Creepy and you're Kooky...


This past week I visited a friend and she gave me and my other friends a tour around her neighborhood. One of the must see attractions in her neighborhood, at least in our opinion, has been nicknamed "The Spooky House". This "spooky house" is a big house with a crooked old fashioned black rod iron gate on the outside and has covered up windows (it looks like sheets) with small glowing lights behind them with a hearse sitting in the driveway. It looks like The Addams Family set up camp in a neatly manicured suburban neighborhood. Spo0o0o0oky, right? So of course, I loved it.

So it got me thinking about graveyards which led me to think about the time I snapped some photos at Highgate Cemetery in London. It was a rainy, dreary day(with the occasional bouts of sunshine which were thoroughly unwelcome) setting the perfect atmosphere to wander around the old and cracked, sinking and therefore tilting graves. I thought I would share the photos just in case you're a big creep on the inside like me.

If you need more:

Scratching, twirling, and a F YOU message. Awesome.

Metal magazine:February-March-April 2010

These are just a few images from some of the fashion editorials featured in Metal magazine. I have heard of Metal so I picked it up when I spotted it in New York. This issue that I got my hands on has been leafed through several times and will continue to be thoroughly examined in the future. I think I'm going to be keeping my eye on this publication. It's both edgy and informative with interesting styling- plus it's a new magazine to explore- which is exactly why I ended up choosing it over the latest issue of Lula. I couldn't afford both of them so I surprised myself and chose Metal even though I have been waiting for Lula! I think I'm okay with my choice which was hard to make because they are so different! After a good twenty-ish minutes of flipping through both of them in search of the defining component which pushed me over the edge to choose- I just went for the exhilarating rush of a NEW magazine. I think I just showed my true colors as a magazine junkie. Oh well, you got own what you are! Can I get an Amen?!....

... right.
