R.I.P. Davy Jones

So very sad that the adorable Davy Jones passed away early this morning from a heart attack at the age of 66. I always enjoyed watching The Monkees when I was a kid…here are some photos and videos to remember him by.

Daisy Chain 4 Satan by Thrill Kill Kult

While working today I stumbled across a user made music video, created from vintage educational films on drugs. The Video is set to one of my all time favorites “Daisy Chain For Satan” by “My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult”. To me Thrill Kill Kult has always been an over looked founder of the industrial music genre, probably because of their expansion into much more experimental psyche house and complete cross genre breakdown! Enjoy.

Catholic School Girl Gone Crazy

A few weeks ago I went to lunch with my Uncle. When we meet up he surveyed my attire and commented “What do you call this look catholic school girl gone crazy?” I liked that term so some friends of mine and I  decided to do a little shoot inspired by that. Here it is in Digital and film.

A Gothic Poem

Iv been getting back into Goth of late…what with all the amazing Goth bands around the bay area and my late night readings of Baudelaire. Here is a little poem inspired by him..


There’s peace in this night of blackness…there is my love laying in this open casket.

Death has come and death has gone leaving me with the frightful dread of dawn…

To be kissed by the wanton sun to say farewell to my sweet Jezebel.

 I shale walk this world arms full heart empty but for the moon.

For my love will heavy hang from the nights sky a permanent mark upon my mind…a beautiful ghost at my side.

I’ll lay these lilies on her grave tomorrow and leave her tome with a waitley sorrow.

I pray she haunts my dreams pressing in on me…her ethereal imprints creased into my sheets.

For my dear Jezebel this life with out you will now seem an all to powerful echo of hell.

Please visit me from the grave my love in your tattered dress of eternal rest.

Press your dead and devoured flesh against me tell me sweetly of your love even after death.

 Love, would Hades let me live with you in his grand kingdom of living tomes and dead flowers caught in shameful bloom?

Ask him dear if he will have me and I will swiftly depart with this friendly knive planted in my heart.

Photos from nights out on the town and a few from day time wanderings.  I love the quote on Kids wall “All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.”
