pinkabrinka said: It's Health and Wellness month in our office. Are there any recommended evil exercise regimens so as to stay fleet and flexible in pursuit of greater villainy?

evilsupplyco:

The idea of working minions to death and, in general, not caring for their being is archaic. It is the leading downfall of villains. Replacements must be recruited and trained, uniforms created, etc.

Basic care and attention will keep your workforce strong, healthy, active, and best of all, contributing at increasingly higher levels to your bottom line (be this financial or destructive).

FOR THE LIVING

  • Stretch
  • Hydrate
  • Take a cat nap while your station is being covered
  • Stretch again
  • A walk around the lair, or outside in the haunted woods. Bring a light snack. Hydrate responsibly.

FOR THE DEAD

  • Quiet resting time. This isn’t terribly different than normal activities, but it’s best to acknowledge their presence. Everyone should feel special from time to time.

FOR THE UNDEAD

  • For the non-corporeal, bask in the moonlight. Use moonlight in a jar as necessary.
  • For the corporeal, stretch and flex.
  • Overturn a few graves so the fresh smells of earth and rot are more prevalent.
  • Opals and amethysts are often enjoyed by various forms of undead. Have a few jars of powered stones handy.

FOR THE UNKNOWN

  • Turn off all the lights and contemplate the dark unreality of nonexistence. Compare this with the unknowable reality of infinite existence.

FOR ALL:

  • Music
  • Halloween cartoons
  • Share stories
  • (We do these three things at every Evil Supply Co. meet up, it works fantastically)
Goth kinda at the office: Summer can be done now, thanks. 
(Also, partially-exposed shoulders - how shocking!)

Order volume skyrocketed, so earlier this month, we upgraded the print size from 5” x 7” to 8.5” x 11”.
Then order volume skyrocketed again, so we’re adding another item: All “Dracula” orders will include 5 temporary tattoos — 1 design, 2” x 2”.
All open orders have been upgraded on both accounts. Quantities are draining fast, and the close date is July 13 (or when we run out, which is only a few dozen more).
Mister Ghost’s “Dracula” is available until July 13 only.

TEMPORARY TATTOOS!

On the one hand (leg?) I WANT THESE.

On the other hand (leg), ugh, they’re from a company that is KNOWN for using artists’ work without permission or compensation.

Auxiliary Magazine is one of my absolute favorite subculture-focused publications. Gorgeous photo shoots, well-written editorials and articles, and all-around fabulous eye candy. And now they’re doing a Kickstarter to enable them to do subscriptions! Please go back them, even if it’s just throwing a few dollars their way. I really want this Kickstarter to succeed.

Did I back at a reward level that will snag me a Reclaim Goth shirt? Of course I did. (There are other design choices, but come on, what else would I choose?)

mythology meme: Lilith [לילית] - “night creatures”, “night monster”, “night hag”, or “screech owl”. In Hebrew mythology Lilith was the first wife of Adam.

Book of Isaiah (34):

Her nobles shall be no more, nor shall kings be proclaimed there; all her princes are gone. Her castles shall be overgrown with thorns, her fortresses with thistles and briers. She shall become an abode for jackals and a haunt for ostriches. Wildcats shall meet with desert beasts, satyrs shall call to one another; There shall the Lilith repose, and find for herself a place to rest.

I’m so happy. I just found the source for one of my favorite pinups of all time:

CUTE

I love long dresses. I love velvet. I love high boots. I never change. I love the same eye make-up. I’m not a fad person. I still have everything I had then. That’s one part of me… that’s where my songs come from. There’s a song on the new Fleetwood Mac album [Mirage] that says, ‘Going back to the velvet underground/back to the floor that I love,’ because I always put my bed on the floor. ‘To a room with some lace and paper flowers/ back to the gypsy that I was.’ And that’s San Francisco. That’s the Velvet Underground. Those are the things that I can’t give up.

And some people wonder why I identify with Ivy.

Today is a day where I listen to all the Autumn Tears. 

Which prompts me to ask: if I want more music like their first three albums (dark symphonic metal, female vocals that AREN’T shrill or nasal (I’m looking at you, Evanescence), minimal “Cookie Monster” growly vocals), what bands should I be listening to?

As some of you may have heard, I did the cover art for a new short story by Gail Carriger set in the world of the Parasol Protectorate.

Well, here’s your chance to double dip on articles about the creation of the cover! 

First an overview by Gail on her blog: http://gailcarriger.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-story-behind-alessandro-tarabottis.html

And then a little more detail from me on my blog: http://www.peteventers.com/blog/2014/07/07/the-curious-case-covered/
