the chosen ones

this weekend, i was lucky enough to be *ahem* chosen as a vendor at vancouver's first installment of THE CHOSEN ONES. it was a great success and you'll definitely be seeing my stuff again for next month's incarnation!

here's a little peek at how my display turned out:

don't mess with a good thing

unless, of course, you can make it better... i have some serious love for a basic black leather biker jacket, but i can really appreciate when this classic gets kicked up a notch or two. or a million.

the brilliant girls of DI$COUNT have done just that, to create these out-of-control masterpieces:

see you next tuesday

my bandmate (ooh, that's fun to say!), long-time friend and blonde bombshell allie, aka legs, is playing her first solo show on tuesday.

Photobucket

she has recently posted a few of her songs, which are all phenomenal (that haunting voice!) but my favorite by far is this one:


OLD BOOTS OLD BONES by CIGARETTE LEGS

she started playing it the other day at the jam space and i thought for sure she was just playing an old heart-wrenching classic. it just blew me away.


so... if you know what's good for you, you'll come to the media club on oct. 19th. see you next tuesday!

does not equal

i have a job that i attend nearly every day - really, it even invades some of my precious weekend time-space continuum. however, i have not been paid since the beginning of august. this black truth is severely limiting my rock-and-roll dreams of buying all the below items necessary to my happiness:

the jack boot:

the pentagram harness:

lest we forget

my amazing friends turbo, matt and marc put together a beautiful ghost bike tribute to our fallen friend, which has since been removed by the city of vancouver.

hopefully it can be tracked down and replaced, with the proper permits... but if not, here is a photo of the product of their hard work.

in this photo, turbo and matt are being interviewed by a reporter from the cbc... their interview can be heard here.

new badassness from the genius that is km*rii. this stuff looks like it grew out of some grotesque leather swamp at midnight on a full moon. that's a good thing.

all-seeing

saw the dead weather last night at the capitol hill block party in seattle. the band was phenomenal, obviously, which is unfortunately more than i can say for the crowd. fucking festivals! anyway, the backdrop was INSANE. one of the greatest stage setups i've ever seen.

Photobucket

did a little research and it was put together by silent giants, a design firm out of detroit, who also did these killer posters:
