Linking Horn for 17 Jan 2010

Linking Horn, Makes me Giggle

A monster horn of doom for you all!

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. – Neil Gaimen

 Cosmic Hearse gives us a listen to A Tribute of Euronymous. This album was being put together as a showcase of black metal, when Varg went crazy with the bread knife, and it ended up being a tribute to Euronymous. The songs aren’t new to hardcore black metal fans, but it’s an interesting piece of history.

Today, I came home from a long day at work to find a path of rose pedals from the front door. Gasping with surprise, I followed it past the living room… past the bedroom… into the kitchen, where there was a note that said “Friends coming over tonight, we need food, love you!” FML

When Gaga Goes Metal, via Reign in Blonde. And from Metal Insider Lady Gaga, the secret Metalhead. The question is, does this really, REALLY matter to us?

Dispatchwork - lego repairs

Having visited Berlin earlier this year, I am gutted I never got the chance to see this art installation. German artist Jan Vormann patches old buildings around the world with legos. There’s something about the juxtaposition of those cheery blocks within these derelict spaces that puts a smile on my face.

Continuing on with the abandoned buildings theme, check out these photos of Saddam Hussein’s abandoned palaces inhabited by the military. Talk about juxtaposition!

Sex Ed Fail.

I love a book combining my two favorite things in the world – vampires and grammar.

Re-aligning your chakras, motherf**ker.

My new favorite blog of all time (this changes weekly, btw) is metalographer. And if you think that sounds like the title of a blog where a metal photographer posts pictures of grymm and frostbitten things, you’d be correct. Yesterday, he visited an abandoned mini-golf course in Maine.

From Listverse, 10 Enigmas that defy explanation.

The blog this is why you are fat makes me giggle. Although this bacon and chicken narwhal is quite artistic.

Steampunk meets anthropologie. An amazing interior design aesthetic from photographer Christine Farah. This is a wedding shoot, but you would hardly know it. This is kind of my dream interior design, except a bt more raw and pagan. Wow.

My apocalypse meter went off-the-spike when I read this thoughtful interview with apocalypse artist Kris Kuksi, via Coilhouse.

Lone Wolf, shot by Tim Zaragoza for Metal Magazine.

San Francisco sculpted in Jello-O. All those clear wobbly buildings look so yum.

This one’s for all the fashion bloggers. The Catorialist. Yes, it’s a blog. Yes, the title gives it away. Yes, it’s awesome.

Frock and Roll helps us figure out what to wear with Doc Martins. This pretty much goes for any big, stompy boots.

Baroque Bleak Brutal started a really kreig regular feature called As The Palaces Burned, reviewing the rare gems of metal’s darkest period – between the release of Nevermind and Iron Maiden playing Madison Square Gardens. This week, they looked at Voivod’s Phobos.

Avatar is making people suicidal. Get a grip guys, it wasn’t that great.

Exciting things afoot this week – interviews, guest posts, metal news, modelling shoots, novelling, painting, birthday plans, and a gig on Saturday \m/
