GIF It To Me! [ Princess Hijab and Other Animated Awesomesaucery ]

As A Kid, I Often Said I Wished I Could Speak In Hieroglyphics

symbols, gif, animated gif

“How rad it would be,” I thought
[ though — since the timeline I’m referencing is circa rural Arkansas —
quite likely not verbatim, my choice of vernacular ]

“If I could speak in pictures. Fancy symbols, and all that shit . . .”
Meaning : not carved in stone, but rather contained
in word bubbles,
like in a comic strip

eye of horus

Y E A H .

A funny thing, time : cycles : that symbol of the serpent swallowing its tail . . .All these years later, and where do I find myself? Obsessed with animated .gifs / yearning to communicate by means of a visual vocabulary. But I mean . . . let’s face it : Does this gem excavated-from-the-uncredited-swag-on-imgur from Tod Browning‘s silent film The Show [ image source / with kind regards to Mogsville ] not speak volumes?

Or how about the next, in terms of a comment response?

And this flash-tastic action? Is it worth the proverbial thousand?

GIF, animated gif, GIF it to me

Hasty generalizations and snide jabs swept aside like unpaid internships, corporeal punishment, or any scenario in which Unique, Special Beings aren’t coddled — even and especially when [ HARMPH! ] “bored. So tot-al-ly bored” : Animated awesomesaucery is served with syllables and consonants, on occasion.

For example : this little ditty by Seacrestcheadle, which I would’ve plastered on my pal Ugly Shyla‘s wall many moons ago, if Facefail permitted such forms of communication [ because yeah, She Gets It ]

Alas, Focus! I need focus!

Seacrestcheadle isn’t why I’ve chosen to get bloggy this fine day [ though worthy a post of his own, indeed! ] Au contraire, I’ve intended to post about the following individual for quite some time now . . .and finally : here we are — and here I am.

If by chance you’re not familiar with the guerilla art of Princess Hijab,

Then please consider this a formal invitation to become acquainted : your introduction by way of brief video clip [ courtesy : Ghosts Of Many via Live Leak ]

O.K. — Now that I’ve provided a bit of background info . . .

GIF, GIF it to me

Aside from recalcitrant acts of Hijabization, the Princess constructs some friggin’ amazing GIF animados ; must admit.

And since ultimately, that’s what I’m ‘on about’ today . . .

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.
