Blood Gone Rogue

After Hurricane Irene, things have been quite busy over here in Fort Bobo (sounds so weird). Anyhow, with school approaching I might be a bit off with the blog posts but nevertheless I will continue to bring rockin' news and whatnot.
things just got more black...uh I mean dangerous
And on that note on with the blogposts! : I know I am late on this but if any of you had watched the latest episode of True Blood, there is so much to be speculated of: Eric is back, vampire politics are at a standstill, Sookie has quite a cat in a bag, blood never stops to become a mess, and the witch as usual is getting all the attention.  Although the show is keeping up some of the basics from the original Sookie Stackhouse series, True Blood has veered into different paths that are unforeseen in the books.I actually think its creative where its going.  It has amazed me how many shocking twists there are here; I can only wonder if I am going to stop being amazed at some point and not be amazed anymore. There are only 2 episodes left before this season ends, so I am patient enough to wait for whats to come. I am not having any expectations at all since I am sure its just going to get more weird, dramatic, magical, and lets not forget BLOOD-Y. (don't be afraid to comment your thoughts on this..its much to be discussed among fans)

P.S. what was up with that ending?

A Door Into A Creepy Hall Of Mirrors

one of the covers for a Hall of Mirrors episode
Remember when I was gushing over Divine Madness? I mentioned a certain podcast called The Hall of Mirrors; Tales of the Grotesque with Mike Bennett. Well if you are looking to grab onto some horror stories that not only will amuse you but also creep you out and start to get under your skin and an excellent accent; you can find that with this podcast. The stories are written and told by Mike Bennett a published writer from London, who has proven to be an excellent voice over actor. The guy can make a voice of an old man, a woman, a demon, and even the Devil (watch out if you are online, Satan, I think you have met someone who can meet your voice...no offense). Mike Bennett can almost do anything (ALMOST!). Not only can he do different voices but he also broadcasts awesome bands such as Divine Madness on his podcasts. So if you dig this podcast, make sure to check his other podcasts on his website as linked above.

It's Time for Some Music (An Underground Band)

I love music so much that lately I have been catching up on different sounds. One right now that has been consistently haunting me (in a good way) is a band named Divine Madness. With a prevalent classic touch, a dash of some rock, and some techno sounds here and there, this band gives you somewhat of its own gothic type of music. You wouldn't be wrong to say it reminds you of Evanescence but don't trip on that because in "Gentle" they prove they are unique. Especially with the lead singer's [Victoria Mazze] rich voice. Once you check out their page (you can click on their name above) you will definitely dig their sound once you check out their influences. For now they are on the underground surface but being on podcasts such as Hall of Mirrors: Tales of the Grotesque (which you can check out on ITunes) and some concerts, they will be able to gain some momentum. If you are on the look-out for a new goth sound I recommend this band.

Baby Vamps are A bit Just Like Us

Jessica Hamby at her beginning
I am a huge fan of True Blood as you can tell, because not only of its supernatural creatures and drama-mama but also because of the fact that it exposes certain things in our society. I find myself still identifying with some of the characters. But one that I find so endearing and more human than anything is Jessica Hamby, Bill Compton's vampire "child" who is played by gorgeous Deborah Ann Woll.
Look at her now!
 Jessica is still struggling not only with being a supernatural creature but with trying to get back on what she would have still done in her human life. She is dealing with being "special" but also with love (that we all at some point or another have dealt with.). Despite the fact that she might think she isn't human she still has some humanity to her; she still acts like a teenager. Right now she has a blog called  http://www.babyvamp-jessica.com/. Not the actress, but rather Jessica the character, has a blog. It's cool because you can follow her character development while following the show.

my favorite color!
So you want to die your hair an extreme color that not even Garnier or L'Oreal can't even offer. I got nothing much but a suggestion (so pleaaaase sit and pay attention!). Although extreme colors like pink, teal blue, and purple aren't on the permanent hair color offerings; they are on the mini semi-permanent section. But what brand should you get for that intense hair experience?....(I know this is going to sound a bit cheesy) but why not some SPLAT! I am sure some of you have seen it or heard of it. SPLAT is a brand of semi-permanent hair coloring that has used  "extreme" and "rebellious" as part of their motto (although, their website doesn't state since when). I have used their "Blue Envy and have gotten good results. After a month or so, I still am rockin' that "Blue Envy" as you can see. PLUS: they are certified to not test their products on animals (what a savior!). Don't knock it until you try it.

that was all folks,

Still "Taking Over"

After singing and revisiting some Evanescence oldies with my friends Nicky & Kay last night, I decided to go on a quest. And I have found quite some good results. I went on Evanescence's page and found this song playing in the background. With the new tracks so far on their page, Evanescence has proven that they are not "going under" like many other alternative popular bands that came out in the 2000's. The piano continues to be a strong influence in their music and Amy Lee (still looking good WOOT!) doesn't defraud with her voice intact as usual. Can't wait for more catchy rockin' tracks on October, and of course the video for this song!

Etsy Discovery Galore Numero #2

Ghostlove Shop Icon! 
Being on Etsy I am finding some delicious looking shops and some of them find me through my Etsy activity feed. The other day I found an awesome Gothic couture shop called GhostLove Jewelry with wonderful models in hot gothic outfits. The shop is owned and founded by Dawn Rozakis since June 2008. Since then she has sold over 3000 accessories. (Talk about a hit!) Looking through the awesome handmade (!!!) accessories, I had to find out more about this wonderful creator of such marvelous Gothic goodies. Here is an interview, an attempt or rather quest for more more more! Enjoy at your will (*evil laugh cough cough*)..

1. What is your inspiration for making your jewelry?
Wonderful Victorian choker
I derive most of my inspiration from gothic and macabre art, the occult, and history.

2. What do you do when you get "art-blocked"?
I try to browse some of my “muse” blogs or go see an art exhibit if I am really uninspired for some reason.

3. What brought you the idea of selling on etsy?
I was originally a customer on etsy and loved the idea of buying handmade directly from the artist. I decided to open a shop when I started my jewelry line as a way to “test” my designs out in the marketplace before I launched ghostlove.com.

4. When you are not making new accessories and selling them on etsy, you are....?
Well, I am shamefully addicted to tumblr, so you can usually find me there wasting time. Otherwise I am working on stories or music.

5. Any tattoos to be proud of?
Nope. No tattoos on my body. I used to have nipples rings by I took them out recently.

an accessory of the Pirate collection
6. favorite mythical creature?
I love the idea of a babel fish, although that is not technically mythical.

7. combat boots or a corset?
Definitely combat boots lately…but I have been known to rock a ribcage corset from Louise Black.

8. Favorite bands/ books?
Lately I’ve been really into Austra, Zoe Keating, and Cults but my favorite band is New Model Army.
Don’t have a favorite book, but I just read J-Pod and it was awesome.

9. What's a tip you would give to a potential etsy seller?
Keep in mind that there are now millions of etsy shops, all competing for eyes. Make sure your product has a good description, great photos and competitive pricing.

10. What is something daring you would want to do?
I would like to go backpacking across Asia with my beau.

11. Anarchy or rebellion?
Definitely rebellion. There is always a massive concentration of human energy lurking just below the surface of everyday life that has the power to change the world. Sometimes I can actually feel it and it sort of wakes me up inside.
