i am the shadow on the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright

Halloween's been pretty good so far.
Started the day with Inca Mummy Girl:

Collected the necessaries:

Adorned the proper attire:

Indulged in some timeless halloween viewing:

And have yet to remove this glittery bat headband from my head since my sister brought it home:

Now it's time to hide from trick 'r treaters.
Devour halloween candy like a savage.
And watch something aptly spine-tingling.

This holiday, y'know?

Who wants an enormous Halloween Mix?

Plus bonus tracks:
(because my sister was bugging me)

This started as a 15 song playlist.
It's even bigger than last year's.
I have no self control.

Enjoy, creepers.


It's Buffy time.

I tease my dad endlessly about listening to Scott Walker.
Not because i think he isn't worth listening to but purely because i'm a feather-ruffling little shit.
Never have kids.
We're horrible.

sivu - dumb

howlin' wolf - louise

For years i've been kinda pissed that my name is so infrequently used in music.
(petty and ridiculous? check)
Somehow i'd completely missed Howlin' Wolf dedicating a whole song to it.
Howlin' freaking Wolf!
This makes up for everything.

My bud, Dexterous has just finished (is about to finish?) the full Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood box set.
I think he's trying to tempt me into watching it by sending me stuff like this.
It's working.

It's kind of breaking me just to look at these.

I don't know why there's an extra sting when i come across someone's work from my old stomping* ground.
That's a lie.
I do and it's childish and tired.
But university broke something inside of me and as a fairly fragile person, breaks don't mend easily.
So, to see someone from DoJ doing the kind of work i wasn't capable of.
Work that has the aesthetic and emotional resonance i desperately wanted mine to have and fell miserably short of.
Well, it kind of smarts a little.
But some people just have 'it' and others don't.
I'm the latter.
Technically? I'm a proficient draughtsman.
Give me something to draw and you'll get something aesthetically pleasing.
(although it's been years since i've picked up a pencil/pen/stub of charcoal so who knows what dire things might crawl through my fingertips these days)
But when it comes to producing work that actually means something?
Work that has something different and special about it?
I'm not your girl.
And that's okay.
Great in fact.
I love art.
I love looking at art.
I do it every single day.
And even though it slowly chips away at my confidence, i won't stop basking in other people's talent.
That's simply not the point of art.

*Not once did i stomp. I scurried and fled like a frightened beetle at every possible opportunity.
