Sometimes I wish I had studied set design/ prop styling.

Pop television has never been done better than the Italians did it in the late 70/early 80s. I am deadly serious.

Not serious about this one, it’s crap.

Ectoplasm

Thursday, April 28th, 2011


I was watching this 4OD documentary the other night about the Helen Duncan, who was the last person to be imprisoned under the Witchcraft Act of 1735 – in the 1940s! The documentary mentions how she would produce “ectoplasm” during her seances, kind of like a white bedsheet which came out through a bodily orifice. Mental. Curiosity got the better of me and I ended up googling ectoplasm, these image are beyond weird.

I have spent the past week planting my flower garden; Irises, Anemones, Nasturtiums, Lavender, Foxgloves, Poppies and plenty more. I think they might end up on my head!

Sexy food

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

From Barbara Cartland’s “The Romance of Food” cookery book, which I purchased this week. I will be making the Beef Wellington once I track down the appropriate knick-knacks and replica pistols.

From a Brochure for a French Cruise liner’s restaurant. Outrageous Aspic usage.

Hausu!

My obsession with this Japanese horror film, Hausu aka HOUSE, has been escalating for sometime. Everything in it is so wrong, it’s right; the music, the editing, the animation, the twisted and demented death scenes. I particularly like the white cat that reoccurs throughout the film like some bad omen.

How good is this t-shirt?
