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

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.

Appeared as myself, modeling for Dark Garden Corsetry and custom latex meisters So Hip It Hurts


Discovery Channel : Beyond Bizarre

Episode 7
Available to order from Direct Video


VH1 : Sound Affects

Feature / Interview

Series premise : The profound affect of music in the lives of certain individuals. My choice, as a guest? “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat. I have quite an extended anecdote regarding this track — after all, I grew up on a gravel road in [ what was then ] rural Arkansas.


Da ALI G Show

Episode #4, “Art/Media”
I’m in this for something like a nanosecond. Seriously. Blink and you will miss me.


Femme TV

Featured interview
July 98 episode

Performed “Flouncing About” and accidentally caught show hostess Machiko Saito’s dress on fire with my cigarette! (no lie — and precisely why editors left the footage in).


Strange Universe

Interview regarding my duties hosting “Roderick’s Chamber,” modeling for Charles Gatewood, Gothy Goth Goth stuff.


Entertainment Tonight

A feature on Rob Schneider from SNL and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, which includes a visit to a nightclub where I was a designated host for the evening. There’s a scene in which Schneider happens upon me sitting with his mother, as she “casually” flips through a album full of his childhood photos. The location + my appearance at the time = wherein the humor lies…


The First Cut

Episode about Ye Olde ‘G’ Word, in which I’m interviewed at Roderick’s. Maing, do I ever wish I still had a VHS copy of this one; nothing about the show is listed on IMDB whatsoever.

Audz and me : just hangin’ with the Baseheads, sippin’ with cracked lips
from brown papered-bottles of Night Train . . . Oh yeah!
And, uh, Eric Kroll and his crew

Once The Boys and he hauled Irene’s chair downstairs, I suppose my look turned Bloodthirsty-Barber-Accepting-“Walk-In” — or rather, walk up? — Clients. Said another way? The Baseheads wandered a bit too close to our ‘home base.’ Sidewalk or nay, they were getting a bit too . . . interactive in our production. Mumbling from afar quickly progressed regressed into spittle proximity, so when Mr. Kroll urged me all mad cazh to Turn Up My Crazy, well . . . I amped it to about an 11. In case you were wondering? Flailing 14″ shears are an effective prop if one is aiming for 5150 territory. [ Cue latex-clad emoticon, kplzthnx ]

Sure, out-kooking-the-kooks has its own entertainment value — but I was stoked to be photographed by the fetish-meister after so many years, truth be told. I’ve seen him listed as ‘the most famous fetish photographer alive,’ and I can’t say I’d argue. I mean : images from his book Fetish Girls were made into postcards I remember seeing in airports, for F’s sake.

That tome of T & A — along with several other of his published works — has been on many a coffee table I’ve encountered over the years.

Short of the long? Whatever the case with this eve : it was an “encounter” ; that’s for sure!

Mad Pash for Fash/Reasons to Melt Plastic

☆ Thumbs’ Up to “the imdb”; What I’m Listening To/Things You Should See ☆

First off, thanks to all of you wherever who did whatever, whenever that made my imdb stats jump so high this week. I don’t know if it’s a result of my presence in the *(cough! cough!)* “Celebrity Lifestyle’ issue of Wedding Dresses magazine that came out earlier this month. I mean, I knew that was a mainstream fluke… I just didn’t expect to see it, well, just about everywhere. Especially, say—on a shopping excursion at 3 a.m. for Redi-Whip at Ralph’s.

Then again, I also didn’t anticipate going from having three cameras in my possession to none in the span of a week and a half.

As with anything in my life, it seems I have to learn my lessons the hardest way imaginable. Rather than talk about despair (I mean, please—how many years was I Too Goth To Handle? There’s only so long I can go around having a bad time everywhere!), I’m just gonna “suck it up’ and buy a Canon that’s been recommended.

So…since I don’t have any “exclusive’ photos at the moment, I figured:
Why not post about some of my current obsessions?

Today I’m diggin’ on…

Then– of course, what’s a little…screen-saver/site-scan shopping?

Granted, I can’t fight off the lyrics that come to mind of someone who truly understands the meaning of the word irony: Lily Allen. Her demo “I Don’t Know” is such a strychnine-soaked smiley-faced commentary on contemporary society; rarely a day goes by that the sardonic lyrics don’t get queued up on the ol’ iPod.

Despite the cadence that resonates through lines like:

“I am a weapon of massive consumption/
It’s not my fault/it’s how I’m programmed to function…”

Here’s where I succumb to that which I

Clint Catalyst’s “Slacker Intervention” — Case #1: The Millennial Without Motivation

« © »

“A MILLENNIAL… that’s a SLACKER? An oxymoron, or just plain moronic? In this (ahem) “self-help” clip, Clint accepts the dare request to provide a helpful nudge to a Millennial who seems to be doing something revolutionary: NOTHING. MUCH. AT. ALL.”
