Rick Owens A/W 2012... the perfect wardrobe for Reverend Mothers.

Sunday, February 26, 2012


One of my favorite things about the irrepressible Daniel Palillo is his knack for combining the creepy with the cartoonish. How psyched am I for his A/W 2012 collection, titled The Enterprise? I'm taking a page from the Oblina-esque fifth from the top left and grinning ear to ear--uh, armpit to armpit. Next on my wishlist, the "Fuck the Police" sweat and eyeball dropcrotch...


Hey err'body!

It's been just under a year since I last updated this blog, so I don't know how many people (if anyone!) is still reading the nonsense I post on here... for anyone who's stuck around this long (weirdos!), come on over and follow my Tumblr blog, which I promise is much more frequently updated with a whole variety of strange things.

I kind of phased out posting on Hammer because I haven't heard too much good new metal, but I thought I would throw this video up here after catching to this song on the radio last night. It's classic-style doom (a perennial fav of mine), classic-style Pallbearer, and most importantly, heavy enough to herald my return to Blogspot. I've got some stuff to post in the next few days, so if you're out there, hang on to yourself! I'll be back! Edited March 2018, hello from the future and follow my other other blog... love and kisses!

I fell out of the habit of checking personal style blogs a few months ago. Something about the nouveau-pop-Goth look--you know it, piles of rings, leggings, Jeffrey Campbell platforms, drapey layers, "esoteric" symbols, etc., etc.--becoming omnipresent and overly trendy... in the end, who cares? I'd rather see crazy-ass ladies working it out in whatever their hearts' desire, no need to consider if it's KVLT enough.

So with that in mind, you can imagine my amazement and instant full-blown love affair when I stumbled across this previously unknown-to-me style blogger. Everybody, here's Princess Paolina of Calur Villade.

My reaction upon seeing this gif? SKEET SKEET SKEET. Gimme those mescaline-gypsy robes, gurlfran. Wowza. Then there's this handmade "yarn web thing":

WHATTTTTT. I'm dying. FROM PREMATURE EJACULATIONS. Sorry, but this is too good.

Thank you for validating my lust for hair-as-accessories:

Thank you, from the bottom of my little black heart. This is kind of giving me new life. My blog is like a wizened old Nosferatu, slurpin' up some fresh young blood.... ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Liquid refreshment!

Not sure of the provenance of this image (Tumblr, yo), but I couldn't let such blatant use of terrible, hulking, fantastical Millennial cyber-goth-candy-raver (a proud and noble community no doubt) footwear go unnoticed. I only hope these have little rollerskates that pop outta the bottom, of they can blast off into space under their own power, or something like that.

Rave on!

I just came across these incredible styles on the equally inspiring Chateau Thombeau.

Fluffy yeti pants just make sense for March weather, you know? And there is seriously no wrong time for matching your significant other in satin Poiret harem suits. And domino masks!

Whoa! So right after hitting post on that last entry, I did a little Google image search on liquid crystals. I was intrigued when I read in's review that the Kanes were inspired to come up with 'a textile that's never been used' in their new collection. Turns out... they were totally scooped!

Check out this 2007 article on Cleveland-based technology firm AlphaMicron Inc. In addition to the hybrid sunglass/goggles with color-changing liquid crystal lenses, this dress with liquid-filled fringe is currently blowing my mind.

According to the article, they hadn't yet gone into production in 2007. I'm thinking that for A/W 2011, their time has finally come.
