It's Coming! It's Coming! (music and some news)

It's October and guess what that means: HALLOWEEN IS COMING! ITS COMING! Although, it is my favorite month it has been quite hectic. Despite it all I am expecting to cook up an awesome Halloween blog post in my handy dandy cauldron. If you have any stories to share; funny or rather ho-ho-horrifying send them to cupcakeriot45@aol.com.
As for other news: a blast from the past decade, I have come to introduce you a work of the fantastic macabre straight from the crypts of Los Angeles, California: a band of the name Creature Feature. Founded with band members Curtis Rx and Erik X,  CF creates the realm in which Hallows Eve is every day by using catchy synth rhythms, wicked guitar licks, voice recordings and creepy horror themed lyrics. Listening to their song "Aimed for the Head" I am already hooked line and sinker. Hopefully, like me, you would be hypnotized and enjoying it when listening to their music. Beware! or shall I say MWUAHAHAHAHAHAH!

In the Music Box

dead Union Sq.
This fall so far proves to be one eventful season with tours, concerts, and Halloween to spread some music and fun stuff (with stars on the side). And to prove such theory: yesterday I had a fun day out at Union Square: with a new friend to hang with and awesome treasures bought in book form at the Strand. While doing some girrrl talk in a sudden happenstance of a surprise, I met a handsome young man by the musical name of Danny Madison who invited me and my friend to listen to his music.
With a voice that can cross the surface of soft indie, rough punk, and a dash of rap; Madison does a great job in dipping in the indie realm with a professional but fun sound that makes you think why isn't this sold in CD stores instead? You read correct, Madison's CD titled "Danny Madison" isn't sold yet in music stores but you can find him selling it on the NYC tri-state area for less than $10. So far, Madison has sold over 10 THOUSAND [and hopefully will be reaching more than a million].
If you are really diggin' his sound like I do, you are invited to click on his name above or search his music on iTunes. You might just buy some tracks or the whole album.

Tattoo Parking Stop! (an artsy-fartsy post)

one of Quinn's finished masterpieces
Hello all, and apologize for my overall random M.I.A status yet again. I may or may not have stated this before; but classes have long started so many things need and have been done with the purpose of school while I have and continue to also mingle and roam around places. Regardless, I apologize but as I always say: on with the show.
One of the great blogs I have continued to follow was put under hiatus for some technological reasons and in its place there is a twitter account. I am sooooo referring to the awesome twitter link on this blog's sidebar containing the workings of a one very talented Tara Quinn, a tattoo artist, who has quite a groove going. Often there is a quality to her drawings that in a sense remind me of lowbrow art with the splash of colorful surrealism. I strongly suggest to follow her twitter account if you are into surrealist tattoos. She mixes cuteness with brash and often explicit themes. Sooo pleaaaaaase don't hesitate to click on her name above, you will be directed shortly to her tumblr.
