A Muffled Beep Beside Me

Is the title of a poem that debuted in print along with the editorial brilliance [compliment directed towards the team with whom I had the good fortune of working, BTW] in Giuseppina magazine 21 : The Acceptance Issue.

And not that you asked . . . but yes : In my continued assault against the expected, this piece was composed in a form not open but rather fixed, or — despite how deliciously perverse I consider usage of the term, a myriad of connotations attached to it as stead-fast as a spiked cilice to the inner thigh of an Opus Deistrict.

By no means is it my intention to imply that free verse is inferior, but rather familiar. Hence, exploring the paradoxical freedoms of composing within a limited; i.e., formal poetic structure . . . namely, one of my own creation? Oftentimes the experience is nothing short of numinous.

numinous (adj.) : describing an experience that makes one fearful yet fascinated, awed yet attracted — the powerful, personal feeling of being overwhelmed and inspired

Alright, I realize this blog tends to be a bit Zo-centric . . . though not without sufficient cause! Not only is The Intergalactic Naturalist, Prodigal Cosmonomad and Mercury Vagabond a mega-talented creature of massive multi-media creative outpourings; moreover, not only is she one of the most stead-fast, stand-up, all-around superlative friends one could hope to have . . . but also, that beauty! The solo shot in which she’s serving Military Chic? Seriously : Can. Not. Get over!

On a similar tip : Steady gagging over the radness of a certain Editor-In-Chief, who featured me giving face two issues prior; then surprised me with the back cover slot, current ish! [So much adoration and admiration, Jessica! Truly . . . Truly : It’s an honor and a privilege ♥]

The Hangers also express mad gratitude to actor / musician / promoter and international nightclub impresario Mario Diaz for the benevolent usage of his estate, Casa de la Decadencia.

Incidentally, the full-frontal, effing incandescent career of none other than Mssr. Deez-The-Deed Diaz was immortalized on celluloid earlier this year, via the release of Club King — a feature-length documentary directed by Jon Bush, in which the solar system of this evening star is chronicled in all its sordid, dazzling glory. Check it!

by The True Blood Daily. In Australia.   [ CLICK PHOTO TO ENLARGE ]

Surreal? And yet not, actually.

Black Ibis Tarot-Au-Go-Go

As aforementioned, Bethalynne Bajema‘s Black Ibis tarot deck — a veritable companion to the graphic novel of the same name, and act of cartomancy in which I appear as The Hierophant — is available for public consumption.

Cue the cornets, please . . . A fanfare is appropriate!

Moreover, The Black Ibis Tarot — a complete collection of artwork in the deck, accompanied by quotations relevant to each of the Major Arcana — is available in book form.

Among the luminaries Bajema chose to to illustrate her underworld :

Kambriel as The Priestess

Ugly Shyla as XIII Death

In LIFE Magazine, With Actress Annalynne McCord

Not an everyday experience for me, that’s for sure…

(So yeah, I’m kinda stoked about it — “You Got A Problem With That?”)

Don’t get me wrong:

I’m not delusional enough to think the hot little actress in the shot with me

Didn’t play an–ahem!–monumental role in terms of ‘placement.’

Though…

And Here’s One For The Fang-Bangers, The Coffin-Rockers, The Couture Hounds:

Have I mentioned how much I love the site Haute Macabre?

Haute Macabre, haute goth, logo

From the lavish editorial finds in their impeccably-curated archive of Tear Sheets, to the highly covetable objets-de-art many an absinthe-hued eye would ogle with envy — in the darkest-of-dandy / Domestigoth‘s high-end digs, without doubt.

This virtual locale of the monochromatic cognoscenti also posts invaluable blogature, with topics ranging from How To Wear A Headband And Not Look Dumb to DIY projects for dark-siders interested in harnessing creativity to learn How To Make [ One’s ] Own Latex Gear, or even rock a wicked sicked take on Christian Louboutin for Rodarte’s Spiky Heels With Studs.

Short of the long [ of tooth ]?
This site is bloody genius.

The following archived cough! STOLEN cough! editorial post was written by sultry wordsmith Samantha, both Haute Macabre’s co-founder and a veteran Suicide Girl, who shares her personal exploits at Five Twenty Three [dot] com

But enough of my incessant rambling — now it’s

“…Over To You, Sam!”

Seeing as how I have spent my entire weekend glued to my computer working while listening to the first of the Sookie Stackhouse books on audio, I feel it totally appropriate to post this vampire editorial sent to us by Clint Catalyst . Since Nixon posted his spoken word video a few weeks back, he and I have bonded over our mutual love of True Blood, so in Fangtasia Fashion, here’s a first look at his recent shoot by Hoda Amel Abdalla.

Clint is shown wearing pieces from Jared Gold‘s Caspian Collection runway show. Each item is a one-off, and was not duplicated for public distribution.

Mention of Appearance on “Germany’s Next Top Model” with Designer Jared Gold — IN Newsmagazine (UT)

[ Please Click on Image to Enlarge ]

[ Airdate: March 5, 2009 on ProSieben ]

Pictured with me: Jessicka (of Scarling and Jack Off Jill fame) and Mr. Gold, who brought his infamous madagascar hissing cockroach brooches as accessories for one of the model ‘challenges’ of the episode. Mr. Gold received ten minutes of air time on this phenomenal spin-off of the American franchise, which features gorgeous girls, incredibly hospitable hosts, and–as a form of my own demented entertainment–the opportunity for me to be extra “ornery” on-air!

Thanks for the coverage, Amy Spencer…and Vielen Dank to Heidi Klum and her cohorts for having us as guests on Cycle 4!
