Pulp me

 I remember being a kid and going to the library and discovering the book carousel of YA novels . I thought I had died and gone to heaven all of these juicy tales of haunted boarding schools , out of body experiences , maybe a lesbian crush or two , incest and maybe a murder . I could not get enough of Lois Duncan her novels transported me to spooky unseen shores she was the stepping stone to my future love of Stephen King and Angela Carter . The book cover art alone could send me into hours of daydreaming staring at every detail between devouring pages . These pulpy teen novels in my opinion are far superior to the current teen reads . The female characters that I read about were strong and empowered not weak in the knees for some dorky vampire dud . Maybe I am biased and gotten to that point in my life where I start saying " in my day we had better female role models than lady gaga we had Bikini kill and we liked it that way " . Either way I attribute my fascination to the occult , shamanism , meditation , and the paranormal on these early reads they forced my young brain open and I can say I think I am a healthier happier person believing in the possibilities of anything than fearing everything . With openness comes understanding , empathy and love and that is what I want to put out into the world . I love you all , peace out !Read some PULP ! it does a body good .

Embroidery bonanza !

I have been bitten by the embroidery bug and have pimped out a couple of my well worn shirts . I used a iron on pattern for the headphones and the fox but I freestyled the rest . When I was through with my shirts I attacked an old faded purse that I made about 10 years ago and now it is bright and rejuvenated ! In this shit - town economy when you can't afford to spend money on new clothes I thank my lucky stars that I am clever .

I have been putting my triangle tea bag on everything its my newest addition to my personal symbology , plus I love PG tips tea which comes in a pyramid bag . And I added some Black Flag bars because I admire Henry Rollins he is one of my favorite people to listen to , I could sit and listen to him drone on forever . and well the 23 because of Robert Anton Wilson .

I had to include a picture of my cluttered coffee / craft table I am obsessed with inanimate objects thanks to Tom Robbins Skinny legs and All . And last but not least the rainbow of embroidery thread that entranced me with their bright splendor . Craft on ! Peace out !
