Hack & Slash

Hello Lovelies!

Whew, it has been a busy week as usual over here at the Mill. First off, as promised, I have posted no less than 6 new Zom-B-Vex pieces! They're crazy and dark and I think you'll enjoy them. And as always, a big thank you goes out tothe costumers, hair stylists, studio and models who made this a success. Thank you all. One more photo sessionand this series will reach its crazy conclusion. Here are a couple, take a peek!

Oh, and in case you didn't know, Stapelia has a Flickr page here with some fun candid Zom-B-Vex shots, add it to your contacts for future behind the scenes action.

Secondly, I mentioned many posts ago about a pair of old figural head lamps I found for a steal because they were in really rough shape. Well, they have been rewired, repaired, repainted and revivified and they're beautiful. Take a look, I love them. They now cast a lovely dark-countenanced glow upon our Tower Room.

Speaking of portraiture (not that we were), I have found an amazing creative duo that I wanted to share. Billy und Hells really take it to the next level. I love the unlikely subject matter and the way they take flawed faces and make them beautiful. Moving stuff.

And speaking of photographers and quirky portraiture, Dave Mead photographed a ton of men who competed in the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championship. Now, beards gross me right out for some reason, but these are beautiful. Take a peek:

Urban Outfitters always has some craziness that I'm coveting, and here is the latest thing; totem cups. Yeah, that's right, a cup set that stacks and looks like a totem pole. Here is the white set... but uh, they also have it in shiny gold. *drool*

Let's wrap up with some crazy news, shall we? Did you read about the Massachusetts man who took delivery of a slab of bologna... stuffed full of cocaine? Yeah, that's right, someone tainted the best meat on Earth with drugs. I don't know if I'll be able to recover from this misstep Folks, but, I'll try...

My bologna has a first name, it's C-O-K-E-something.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Great lamp - love the before and after! We just saw those totem cups in a shop on our trip... very Canadiana. ;)
