Longing for the Apocalypse

I'm usually good at squeezing a post or two even when it's bat-shit crazy around me, but this weekend was too intense, even for me, to find time and energy and internet to post anything. We've been about 9 hours by car up north and partied like it was 1999. Not really but yeah, really. …


The Darkling Tag

I found the infamous Darkling Tag on Mad Magpie's blog and thought "why not?" since this will be a week when my blog is pretty dead even though I'm very much occupied with living. 1.What is your favourite candle scent? I'm depressing and not into scented candles. I thought that was an old lady thing, not a …

Because I wish all songs had music videos

I'm mesmerized by my headphones and can't stop listen to music. Or watch music videos. Here's some (sometimes less sometimes more) industrial inspiration. A lot of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCPVLjrHDTs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9rjmLBa-cU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLxKwgYVGRk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmlC3SXTkM8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpeuV_8imdI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1G-9WUgptY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=067YF8KHdTM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly-jMFFjIbM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckTkBY6t2Dc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcvEF7rSWMk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiuxgu2XoLA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyZH7Wv1cmA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZF_4ES3Gc8I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY14M3ufW10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtJ0sX6X3eE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU5XyLl2ZyA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5JNABrrjOA


Decadent Deluxe

Me and my partner in crime celebrated 3 years together a couple of days ago and we did so with absinthe and, not in the same day, a nightly road trip to take long exposure pictures of the sunrise in one of my favorite places. But back to the absinthe. It's one of my favorite …


Goodbye, Chester.

I grew up with Linkin Park and it was together with them I discovered nu metal. Accessible on the radio and MTV, they were the bridge between metal and pop music. When I woke up and read about Chester's suicide I froze for a while and I've had Crawling and Papercut playing in the back of my …


First impressions

This has been a truly hectic week and I have barely had the time to clean the apartment, much less doing something fun. But I just finished the first chapter of Beyond the dark veil: Post mortem and mourning photography from the Thanatos archive and it's just such an amazing book. It explains the history …


When it gets real bad

I reluctantly watched the remake of Poltergeist a few days ago and someone really did a number on the classic Spielberg screenplay here. If you've lived under a stone the past decades you might not have heard about the epic tale of a family moving into a home that's based on ancient burial grounds and …
