Meet BATHAUS.  No, not ‘Bauhaus’ — nor is it ‘Bath Haus.’
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way . . .

As steeped in eroticism as esotericism, my introduction came about when I chanced upon

BAT HAUS : ME The ZePH Widow

Though the only information I’ve been able to find
[ via The Juke ] :

” BATHAUS is an ‘artist/collective/phantasm’ working in sound distortion, performance, photography and video. BATHAUS uses new media combined with analogue techniques to produce spectacular performances which integrate original sound and video projections, as well as live movement and dance pieces. The flickr page includes photographs and manipulated stills from the original video pieces. The videos are projected and shot using a Minolta Freedom III 35mm camera with expired film. “

Be Quick! To Pick Up $LØW HE4D

Lukewarm news to the deltoid devotees among internet enthusiasts, perhaps—
though still a hot tip for most :

Whether recent release or ‘not-so’ . . . latch onto the sound sculptures of
$LØW HE4D when & if chance presents.

Haven’t had the best luck with Soundcloud embeds in recent days, so
for a limited time—as in: cue the immediacy of infomercials here, kids
I thought I’d share a track that doesn’t appear on aforementioned albums
but remains among my personal favorites.

With brooding bass-lines and vocals so shrouded in glacial electronics, they
can induce gooseflesh on even the most brutal August eve: click-through

As if the [ far from ] Slow Head isn’t prolific enough on his own,
an individual known as ‘Denounce’ & he have a side project


is the name of said endeavor, & I’m living for ” Sky Opener “—
total synthed-out sensory dream-pop for hazy days & lazy ways

However, since laziness won’t help me with the novella
currently known as my To-Do list :
consider this my cue . . .

“I’m sick and fucking tired of all these haters!”

Oh, GL▲SS †33†H :

How you fill my shattered, charcoal-stained heart with glee.

There was a moment — a brief blip on history’s collective monitor, one might say — in which the tiara-adorned Scene Queen had a significant role in the inexplicable phenomenon referred to as “CeWebrity[ Yes, I know it’s heinous. Do I need to spell every— ]

[ CUT TO ] : a formulaic Wiki How, YouTube Tutorials and Tribute Videos, an on-line ‘zine and social networking community, hubs like Be-Scene.org and Scene Central, a virtual locale for “ladies in waiting” [ no, but really ] and aspiring Scene Kings to — hell, I don’t know…compare quiz scores while waiting to see if their applications for anointment were accepted, I suppose?

Don’t get me wrong : Some of the O.G. S.Q.s [ yep, sure did ] parlayed their notoriety into lucrative businesses. I respect that. Others?  Well, I’m sure they could tell you.

As for the new breed? Word of advice. For fuck’s sake, don’t call yourself a “Scene Queen.” [ or king . . . or TS, et cetera ] As in : EVER. I mean, no one should have to spell it out, but It’s. . .down-right. . . humiliating.

Whatever the case, as with Cosmo, The Rules or any other ‘How-To’ Guide : If you really want to

My advice? Don’t follow someone else’s checklist.
Bust your own fkn’ move.

However, insofar as Nikki? Deal is : This amalgamation fictitious character encapsulates the monstrous end of the spectrum, in which rigid Ranking Systems and bratty, entitled behavior is the norm.

C H E C K   ±   I T  :

[ Mmm-hrmm. Yeah, whatever Nikki. Bet your skank-ass extensions you’d troll efagz to see if your asinine antics merit discussion, even. ]

But enough about Nikki — she’s so 2007, I’m surprised she isn’t donning a miniature top hat smothered in Hello Kitty appliques while “modeling” a cupcake, middle finger of her other hand extended in that universal gesture of bad breeding.

What I’m really here to talk about? The Correctness Maximus who immortalized Miss Thing. Namely, GL▲SS †33†H

I’ll go ahead and break it down. Whether or not you realize, what you need in your life is a physical copy of their EP available through Black Bvs Records. Unless, of course, you’re like Andie Walsh and have more pressing issues…In which case, who can blame? Not-so-very-minor, the dilemma. You know, that of
