A Lord of the Rings, tango wedding (with the cutest Star Trek garter!).
Armor Jewelry make amazing pieces from chain – shoulder pieces, harnesses, leg and arm … things. This sure isn’t the normal pendant and bracelet combination.
The Snow White Princess from Haute Macabre. Normally, I can’t stand white (it’s all glarey, and ick), but this shoot for i-D magazine changed my mind!
Cleverly concealed cellphone towers. This made me laugh because in Egypt they hide lights and cell towers as huge fake palm trees.
Starting next month, Metal Missionaries: a book devoted to in-depth interviews with Christian extreme metal bands will be available for download from Undark. Inlike most metalheads, I’m all for people using their music to understand and express their faith, but I’ve yet to hear an overtly “Christian” metal band who actually sounds good. Wait … Mortification, but that’s it. Prove me wrong, metal missionaries.
The comment thread did, however, remind me of this quote I always loved.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful.” – Seneca
If you’re going to be attending Norway’s Inferno festival this year (you lucky bastards), you can catch a black metal art exhibition, featuring the work of Trine + Kim design studio, who’ve been designing album covers for the likes of Darkthrone since 1999. The works will be mounted on wooden boards and are for sale in small, limited editions. Also for sale – the studio’s self-published art book, Decade, celebrating ten years of creating art together. The book is limited to 150 copies worldwide.
For additional krieg value, this exhibition is being held at Schweigaards Gate 56, the former location of Helvete (now a bakery, which makes a killer croissant J).
Phil Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera) is writing a monthly horror movie column at Bloody Disgusting.
A wonderful, inspiring article by author James Kennedy about collaborating with your fans.
Steampunk homes and transportation mods. I’ve always loved that steampunk campervan.
Pushead SPARROW book. I’m hoping that phrase makes sense to at least some of you.
Here’s hoping you are having an excellent week so far
