There is nothing that makes me feel more like an adult than dismantling, cleaning, oiling, and reassembling the sewing machine.

You mentioned Beetlejuice just now. I love that main title. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone make a tuba do that, before or since.

That’s because I didn’t know what the hell I was doing! That was my fifth score, I think. Tim used to joke, because Pee-wee, Beetlejuice and Batman were my first, fifth and tenth scores, and Tim would say, ‘How are you doing four films in between each of mine?!’ I said, ‘I’m trying to learn how to score, so I can do scores FOR your films!’ Beetlejuice was one that was like, ‘Oh my god, this is unplayable,’ because… Finally it was, but I hadn’t realised how impossible it was for the brass. The tuba had it easy! The tuba was playing the downbeats, and every downbeat was followed by an upbeat on the French horns, and that’s really hard, to pay fast offbeats. The horns and the trombones had a really rough time. I realised at the first rehearsals that it was not working at all. But they’re amazing musicians, so eventually we got it. It was just hard.”

- Danny Elfman on “Beetlejuice“‘s main theme, on Empire

Solitude & Snow

I’ve got to admit, I wouldn’t mind if the snow demons visited again. I just want a few days of heavy snow to go play in. Then I want it all to vanish, and not cause problems.

I am bimbling around the internet, trying to find 2014 calendar pages for my organizer that are more interesting than the usual ones. I’m not having a lot of luck. (Atticus is swamped, otherwise I’d beseech him to design something appropriate.) Have any of you seen nice templates for such a thing?

awkwardstuffedbear said: Excuse me, the sunglasses are goggles or ski sunglasses? Thank you!

Antique ski goggles that I got at a huge discount because the strap had snapped. I restrung them on elastic and added pink velvet bows at the temples.

rivervox said: Where did you get the wonderful coat? And how would you describe it if searching for one? Full-skirted?

I found the coat at a thrift store ages ago (probably over a decade ago). Searching “full skirted” or “princess seamed” should turn up something similar. I know that Fan+Friend makes winter coats with full skirts.

Thank you for the nice compliments, peeps! 

No, these are not photos from today, they are from 2008 (AGES AGO). But I’m sharing them in celebration of the snow demons making a quick visit to Seattle. Yes, that’s the sort of clothing I wear to go playing in the snow. Don’t act like you’re surprised.

Stephanie Inagaki. Sterling silver Bat Skeleton necklace. Yep, still want this.

hollers aggressively about the costuming (the HATS) in the ascot scene

Do I want all the hats in this scene? OF COURSE I DO. I’ve coveted the costuming in this scene for decades.

PSA for gothy fashion types

Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, and Ross ALL have interesting leggings, lace shirts, and those hi-lo hem sheer skirts (that make no sense to me, but I know some of you peeps like them). At Ross alone I saw b&w striped leggings, oversized drape-y shirts in black lace, black chiffon, and sheer-ish b&w stripes, oversized black sweaters with white crosses all over them, and black leggings with crosses. Plus a whole bunch of velvet leggings.
