So. Damn. Deadly. Cute…

I’m vergin’ on a

HAUTE

HAUTE

HAUTE  ATTACK!

With special thanks to Nixon Sixx for casting such an adorable spokesmodel

in this, THE SEVENTH PRIZE RIBBON among

the JARED GOLD/CLINT CATALYST CO-BRANDED MERCHANDISE—

a ‘site exclusive’ for the illustrious

[dot] com

Matter of fact, the HMacabre skeleton crew has assembled an on-line boutique

for the erudite enthusiast of shadowed fineries who’s privy to the fact that

one need not spend a million bucks to look like it.

However!

Before my A.D.D.-addled ass has a chance to bifurcate off into scatter-shot territory,

I need to provide the following info —of

:: where to click :: (HERE!) :: & claim :: First Place as a Hauttie! ::

O.K., then Next:

Look upon a few shop highlights for the darkly inclined, such as

the obscenely affordable black smoke leggings,

as well as

another collaborative effort with

the gents and ¢ommon ¢ent$ in mind…

(Go ahead & fling the slab of Velveeta at me over that one—I’ll cop the rationale of Twi-hards in my defense: “I don’t know how it happened! I must’ve been roofied or something, ’cause my taste level—I mean, my defenses—were down. Really: I’m really much cooler than that!” )


Mmmm-hrmmm. Right.

All the same, THIS FINE ITEM

is most right-on, indeed!

The offspring of joined forces: Haute Macabre with Cyberoptix

(a company worthy its own blog post, truth be told…)

:: rad ties & cravats ::

paired with retinal candy such as the following

drool-worthy [OOPS]  impeccable display of DNA at its finest?


—ahem!—

Well, since I’m “already here,” so to speak,

I figured I might as well share…


Since, you know: there’s a more-than-decent chance I’ll be ogling their URL

frequently

More.Hot.Rivet-Heads.&.Goth.Guys,Plz!


Hrmm. Did you guys hear something?

But of course!

Furtive whispers from Thee Cult Ov Thee Fashion-Forward

state the obvious

(That is—for any devotee of Haute Macabre or mine owne Dot Com):


BAM!   Be it

xx or xy,

THIS. IS. UNISEXY.

Scrying. Divination. Skin. Magick. Mad Style. Ten Inchers. † THESE NEW PURITANS †

Hidden, the sophomore release by British “art-rockers” These New Puritans, is now available Stateside. You know, as in: domestically. It’s a lot of things, this aural assault : a mélange of the cinematic and the classical, the intimate and the evasive, the post-modern and the profound. However, one adjective that isn’t applicable for what’s quickly become my favorite release of the year? Sophomoric.

Spot-check this Most Correct clip for the album’s single “We Want War,” directed by Daniel Askill:

Created by Jordan Askill, I’m a bit in awe of that Battle Cat Head Piece . . .

Oh! And for those prone to the “Covet / Love It” when it comes to collectibles, These New Puritans have rarities to offer their disciples :

[ A deluxe version of the CD, complete with 80 pg. hardback book? Drool-worthy. ]

Full Disclosure: While I loathe band groupies [ Seriously : Try screaming at an art opening or academic conference — that's subversive...whereas offering to give roadies head for a laminate back-stage? Such a seventies' cliché; I'm yawning ], I have an insatiable affinity for the Limited-Edition / Signed-and-Numbered / Gatefold / Box Set / 3″ CD / 10″ EP / Colored Vinyl / Picture Disc of It All.

Alright, then. Moving right along…

[ Photo source : Last.fm ]

The video for “Elvis,” a single from the band’s premiere album Beat Pyramid, is also Most God, Indeed.

† “We’re all waiting / Or Forever Made / And if there is a God, then please take me up…” †

Consider the gents on the handsome side?  You’re not alone. Twin brothers Jack [ vocals ] and George Barnett [ drums ] have been ogled by the fashion set since the band’s inception in 2005. Before they’d even released a full-length album, designer Hedi Slimane commissioned the “band” [ translation: George, whom Slimane also featured on the catwalk ] to record a soundtrack for his final collection at Dior Homme, the “Hiver” 2007 runway show. This was Barnett’s first professional modeling gig, though the demand for pale, angular creatures from the xy set has kept him busy: campaigns for Lanvin and Ray-Ban; editorials in Dazed & Confused, Zoo, Arena Homme +, 10, GQ, Another Man, and Vogue Hommes Japan — and runway work for dozens of designers, including Burberry Fall/Winter 10/11, Prada, YSL, Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh, Dries van Noten, Veronique Branquinho, Galliano, and Gucci.

However, insofar as far as my own taste goes? Not that you asked, but I’m backin’ Jack over George. And speaking of back, let’s do exactly THAT

Two Bombshells With Cobalt-Colored Hair

First, I’m stoked to have social media superhero Miss Destructo

as the next ‘Consumer As Spokesmodel’ (despite how admittedly goober the title may be…)  ::  Keep sending in those glamour shots of you rockin’ product, kids… Whether it’s a book bag or a prize ribbon, I’d love to plaster your face up here for all the w.w.w. to see!

And next, a familiar face on this blog, as of late—

Zoetica Ebb, filling the role of “Check-Me-Out-Bitches; I’m In An Ad!”

Ahhh, YES:

I really love this “bounce-out.” (Is that what they’re called?) Whatever the nomenclature,

Massive thanks to graphics whiz Joanna Carr!

Clint Catalyst’s Guide To Los Angeles (Interview for Gay.com by Josh Rotter)

DISCLAIMER!

✪ Please Note: ✪

At the time in which this interview was conducted, I didn’t exactly have an unbiased point-of-view.

Friends of mine had recently been laid off—a common occurrence in businesses when things like a “merger” occur… but wounds were still fresh, so to speak.  If not theirs—well, then mine, out of camaraderie.

Rather than call attention to the negative, I hope you’ll be able to apply the aforementioned statement in any instances where it might be [AHEM!] applicable.  As in: flagrantly.

Oh, &…it’s taken numerous attempts for my embarrassingly low-tech ass to get this archived Q & A to post within WP’s established parameters.

Retail Bliss (Oh No, But I *Insist*…)

And here it is, December 26th. The Day After.

First and foremost, Congratulations! If you’re reading this, chances are you survived. However, for those of you whom “survival” just ain’t cuttin’ it, and you’re feeling less-than-satisfied with this year’s swag?  While wild women descend upon shopping malls in the ultimate Quest To Find A Good Bargain, Damnit, please allow me to provide suggestions by a more civilized approach: The “F it—this one’s for me, and I’m packin’ plastic.”  In the comfort of your own home, even!

That being said,

Whew! There are several other goodies I intended to share for your retail/retinal pleasure, but truth is: I’m technologically-challenged, and this whole “HTML” thing? Takes me muuuuch longer than one would think. (Seriously? It’s pretty sad, guys.) I’ll have to post more suggestions later… As for now?

Because ‘Participant’ Is Not An Award, And Life Is Not The Special Olympics

Truth of the matter is:
We don’t all get a hug for our efforts.

What we do ‘get,’ however, is Freedom Of Choice…
(though make no mistake: to not choose is—in itself—a decision).

A choice you’re hereby offered the opportunity?

Who gets an award (yourself, perhaps?), and
For what?

Bookends Don’t Always Need A Page (A Blog Comment In The Form Of A ‘Free-Write’)

the moldy doily, kime buzelli

 

Though your emotions may feel as if they’ve been scattered,
Smothered and covered in the Waffle House of Existence, the
Artwork you create is indeed a language understood by others:

Think of it as speaking in hieroglyphics.

Words that never have to be “learned”– yet are universal,
Exist outside the constraints of time, and become exponentionally
More subjective as they’re strung together.

A strand of jewels that has no concern for what I refer to as ‘Millenial Newspeak’–

Eyes devour the resplendent, the visually stunning
Even when minds shift off and a virtual screen-saver glazes over

Any “tl;dr”

“IDK”

Doubleplusungood

Orwellian B.S.

//

Said another way?

The heart has no need for
Urbandictionary.com

Even on an “off” day, you
Affect it, its
Chamber by
Chamber

Through
The body of work you’ve created
Already——it

Skitters with an emotional velocity too deft for
Man’s lazy Abbreviations. No need
To dial Orwell on
The White Courtesy Phone

There are no acronyms in the
Human condition; whether
We ‘choose to be all right’
Or not

It just is
What it is

It just is.
