Dayum! That’s a crap load of dog tags. Artist Do-Ho Suh made this work of serious art at The Rhode island School of Design (holla!)in 2001 for an assignment regarding his identity as a Korean on the US. So clever and poignant, hundreds of military dogs tags make up a kimono large enough for Andre Leon Talley. You know he would wear it and give the stank eye to anyone who stepped on it even though it’s like half a football field big.

Anyway, you can see this at the Seattle Art Museum on permanent display, so after your ass gets a Frappuccino, haul ass to this museum ’cause this is where it’s at.

Special thanks to my fancy brother for these fancy photos taken with his fancy camera!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!


Ring in the New Year for me with a cupcake, cat in the lap, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Special because I’ll already be in BED. After a certain age,  you just don’t give an eff. Stay safe and let’s hope our champagne is a little better than the usual Cold Duck brand!

If you have a pair of old ‘Ho’ shoes laying around and it doesn’t reek too bad of feet and cheap perfume, then this might be a brilliant DIY project! Or you can let  Giddy Spinster do the honors. Nothing says elegant and nature lover like a stiletto planter. Grow your own personal cactus plant in a defunct stiletto to remind you of your heydays an untouchable female….

So, really, this sounds like a cool idea only if the cactus plants were rosemary because I would perch that sh*t right on the kitchen counter. Call me demure.

Check out the other works of Giddy Spinster including a mascara wand art piece, blow dryer and bookends. Just as long as you don’t mind the smell of feet, I suppose.

I love and collect useless little figurines, especially ones of woodland creatures and gnomes. So, this is right up my alley! The Victorian outfits make them even more irresistible. I have to say my curio cabinet can be all kinds of creepy in the middle of the night. Even my cats sleep with me in the bed for fear! Check out The Runny Bunny on Etsy. If you always wanted a ceramic bunny in drag, then you’ve come to the right place. Speaking of bunnies and cute woodland creatures, check out this teddy bear horror short below (NSFW-  for Bear-on-Bear Violence):

Los Angeles- based artist Jeff Nishinaka must have paper cuts all over his hands like all the time! He created these art landscapes from PAPER! That is pretty impressive if you ask me. Creating art with paper is like baking a damn souffle. It’s so delicate that if one thing goes wrong the whole thing is ruined. The detail in Nishinaka’s work is incredible……down to the mane on the horse and busted face of the Sphinx. Next time we have arts and crafts at our house, maybe I’ll give Jeff a call. He’ll probably be like, ‘origami? That’s for babies!’ and then he’ll sashay away with a paper middle finger. Hahahah- I love making up fictional stories in my head!

Check out Alberto Guardiani‘s lipstick heel for  $410! It’s badass and you know you want it… I know I want it, but only if the the lipstick was a blade! Like here:

That’s me modeling in Vivienne Westwood shoes and a lipstick knife I picked up at some gun convention. Seriously, I don’t know why I was at a gun convention because I don’t even own a gun. Funny how I ended in random places during my youth! Anyway, that lipstick knife used to go with me everywhere in my pocketbook to ward off any loonies or criminal types. I somehow wish it would have warded off bad boyfriends, but it seemed to attract them more than anything! Anywho, I still have it, but choose mace over my weapon of choice these days.

Going back to those heels, I do like how the lipstick looks bloody… I shall save my pennies for it!

Chances are that you are reading this piss drunk on your mobile at your family’s Christmas lunch. Before your nagging aunt tells you to put away the phone and pay attention to the unappetizing chestnut cobbler she made, I leave you with photos from the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a.k.a “outfits you will never find at a Victoria’s Secret even if you use the displays behind the window”. Because, truly, whenever I go into a Victoria’s Secret, I only see the sweatpants with ‘pink’ stamped across the ass. I dunno, maybe I’m just blind.

Anyway, have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season! Here is Mr. Marmar doing his best ‘Santa Baby’ pout. I totally taught him that! Actually, I see a little grinchiness in his eyes. Oooooh, My PET!

Los Angeles -based Beat Up Creations just knows what the public wants- vintage china plates with Gizmo right in the center! This makes tea time such a treat with a bear-faced Marie Antoinette staring back at you through a scatter of scone crumbs! *Swoon*! My favorite has to be the Elizabethan ET or the cat in uniform. Hell! They’re ALL my favorite. Beat Up Creations also does zombie portraits, so make sure to check out their Etsy store. There were seriously too many to post, but they ALL are just lovely and kitschy! Aaaaaand , they are all upcycled. Brilliant work!
