"The Vampira Show" promo’s part 2

Idle lipstick window shopping: I am tempted by Rituel de Fille’s “Fortuneteller” lipstick, but I’m in that seemingly never-ending quandary of "Yes, but how does it look on a person?" and "Is it just that I really like the product name?"

At the spell of the Dead Man’s hand! Sleep, all who sleep! — Wake, all who wake! But be as the dead for the Dead Man’s sake!

mythology meme: Lucifer [הֵילֵל] - “morning star”, “daystar”, “shining one”.

Isaiah 14:12–17. “How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: ‘Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?’

brokenponycutiemark said: REALLY? You’ve not-ripped Trio Nocturna?! Are you feeling all right? Do you need tea and a violet marshmallow?

::sniffles:: Yes. I need those things. 

(This, peeps, is part of why StuntHusband and I have been best friends for decades.)

::stares at music library in disbelief::

Wait, I never got around to importing the Trio Nocturna CDs? OR the Order of Dying Knights? Really, Self? I hope they’re in that one storage bin in the basement. No, not that one, that’s the one with the extra pumpkins and bats. 

Yesterday over on Twitter, delilahsdawson and @cmpriest were having a &#8220;retro goth off&#8221;. I figured I needed to share one of my photos from a NOLA cemetery. Halloween 1994-ish, I think? 
On that trip, I stayed at the house of the goth band Falling Janus, and went to the Anne Rice Halloween Ball as a guest of the harpist for Trio Nocturna. The entire trip was very, very surreal. Fun, but weird.

F*ck, Im and Adult. A Drama based on a true story.

I go through this EXACT line of thought with every paycheck.

The Cure, “Burn”

Mmmm…the beginning of the Dreadful LARPing Past. Many a weekend with the Principality of Seattle (“The Dark Emerald”) at the Vogue, in character (and “costume”, which was mostly just “dress up for a night at the club”) dancing (EMOTING! WITH! PASSION!) to this.

The temptation to become the King of Harpies - no. No no no.

Oh, I remember those nights.

The Sisters of Mercy, “Ribbons”

The Rule of the Narcissi is that this song must be played on endless repeat while the Narcissi prepare for a Night Out.

(That’s my old ex-roommate, the Man who Looks Like Albrecht Durer and I - we were the Narcissi, the Most Self-Absorbed Men in the Scene). Then we’d take the bus to the Vogue and dance to this as well.

My youth was…deliberately as peculiar as I could manage.
