i would die 4 U

03 swords

09 wands

xvii moon

evil moon / riki-kun

spent the better part of the day attempting to rescue the 3 of swords from a background disaster, and there’s not much i can do about it now, other than re-draw the entire card but i somehow refuse to do that today.

after a night of PURPLE RAIN, i return home and found these in my postal.

finally!

i am so infinitely pleased with them i went so far as to transform my very favourite textile into a tiny pouch for them.
violet fabric

i’ve been carrying around this tiny scrap of fabric – measuring at most 15×15 cm – for about 10 years.  salvaged from my mother’s scrap bin [she must have made a shirt from it many years ago, i unfortunately don’t remember].  i have never been able to find a textile quite like this again, so i knew it was special.  so sacred, the sacrifice to cut and sew this tiny little thing was frustrating.  it isn’t even large enough for a proper drawstring.  enough of that – i least i finally own something worthy of immortailizing violets on a black abyss.

Gothedron

i’m at the state where almost everything is in process, and not anywhere close to being finished.

which means it must be the perfect time to change my entire style, right?

right.

reqbat and i have joined forces against twee.  now, if any of my viewer[s] are twee, or have a fondness for it, close your ears and cover your eyes.

you see, we’ve gone goth.  or something.  if its dead, so what? FUCK YEA GOTHS is my new favourite thing on the internet, but i guess my admitting to want to be goth of very un-gothy of me. but! i’m also really digging the decora style of fruits, so technically, maybe, i’m still the same person?

so meta.

but the cuteness, it isnt doing anything for me anymore.  give me fad gadget, the horrors, suicide, cabaret voltaire, spider and the flies – anything but candy dream wonders.  even though i’m already a size 9/10, i’m dying for a pair of high buckled winklepickers and a classy wig.

i spent the night watching THE CROW and folding PHiZZ modules, and wound up folding this little bad boy ::

every single hedra only like this

please note that this is 2 sides of the same tetrahedron hexahedron.  this is a big breakthrough in my renegade, heavily lady gaga inspired project[s].

regarding the backlash surrounding xiu xiu’s video for ‘dear god, i hate myself’ i have one thing to say ::

'dear god, i hate myself' is art.  if you can't handle it : GTFO.

wikipedia defines art as :: the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions.

just because something appeals to the negative aspect of our psyches, does not mean it is not art.  know thyself, and know when you’re in over your head, trying to explain to a gossip blog the meaning of ‘aesthetics’.

lesson learned – and xiu xiu will go on with their fabulously bad selves, no matter what.

thank god for that.

Spengler Figure Bird Porn

EARLY EDITION RADIOPARTY

away tomorrow evening – so this week’s RADIOPARTY is tonight

fueled by avocado pizza and cucumber salse, i’ll be reading volume one of oswald spengler’s ‘decline of the west’ and figure drawing.

but heather – you ask – who will you draw????
for the best modeling, try porn!
pinup is always fun – these girls make such dynamic lines with their limbs – it’s a wonder their bones don’t pop out of their joints sometimes.
[oh heather, such a square]

another figure i have issues with are birds.  the wing / beak ratio is really weak.

see you on the radio.

ETA
twitter today, like livejournal, is not letting me update.
slow night of not thing other than
