Random Finds: Etsy Finds#3

Hey and a ding-bang-boo!

Just recently I found this awesome store on Etsy that was just too rock-ing-li-cious. I have to share. (excuse my girly-ness).

I always loved the idea of putting buttons of things you liked (i.e bands, funny sayings, icons) on bags, clothing, bookbags, maybe even shoes. Thus, my constant search of finding and buying buttons (along with patches) on Etsy, Amazon, and other online stores.

And thus, the awesome find on an Etsy store called Necromance Theatre. Owned by a college student who goes by the Etsy username of "Princess", Necromance Theatre holds listings of pins, brooches, and necklaces with images of alternative bands and artists edited in photoshop.

The pins are a bit overpriced, what with one being $3 (plus the shipping). However, when purchasing more than one item, shipping is free.

As for the necklaces, they are pretty darn awesome since the pendants are shaped like guitar picks annnnnd they can be used by men and women. I definitelye, absolutely, and outrageously (MAHA!) recommend checking out her store if you are looking to get a $10 or less accessory for the bands you love. After all, there is nothing wrong with expressing your fandom.

Random Video Finds: Kat Von D Shares Her Wares

Hey folks, 
Hope all is well! 
I wanted to share with you this video I found of Kat Von D. 

Recently, I have been looking at some of the articles posted in Etsy's blog and found an article posted about Kate Von D. You know me: I had to check it out! So I read on, and apparently Kate Von D shops a lot in Etsy. And not only that! About three months ago, she has been posting videos all about her closet in her youtube channel.

I found myself a bit shocked because most celebrities now usually shop at some high priced shop or even get their stuff custom made. And here was Kate Von D talking about buying stuff from Etsy sellers. It goes to show that you don't need to buy expensive clothing to rock out your style. If it helps you when you're suddenly on a budget for an indeterminate time: shop on clearance. Look for a sale on Etsy even. Not all items have expensive shipping and handling.

On another note: I am still thinking: why have I not known about Kat Von D's video series sooner! Gosh! *head swivels to the other way* But point: I found it and here I am sharing it with you (along with some helpful advice).

Discoveries and Other Finds pt. 2

Hey folks, hope the weeks going great with the new year hub bub and holiday cheer.
Came back because as previously stated, I am going to share with you 2 other bands I found just recently.

Last blogpost in 2012, I talked about Tiger! Tiger!, a band from Atlanta and another band that is NYC based called Peelander-Z.

Today I am going to share with you two bands; one from New York (woo! NYC represent) that has quite some political ammo along with a mix of trombone and guitar riffs; and another artist who was born in Paris and is now living in London known for her sound similar to that of Hole.

Let's start with the band from New York. The way I stumbled on this one was looking at concerts that were going on during the month of December for the Knitting Factory (venue) in Brooklyn. I always have this thing of checking out the music on youtube or the link provided by the website before venturing out towards the venue. Its a good thing to do if you don't like wasting your 10 bucks on music that is just not you. Once I found Outernational, I fell in love with their album "Todos Somos Ilegales". Combining elements of trombones, guitar & bass riffs, drums, powerful lyrics and the occasional accordion; Outernational stands out from most alternative bands. They are very pro-active with the messages in their songs. According to a Rolling Stones article, after releasing their album, they went on tour and played in places like Tijuana and California, meeting those who have crossed the border and war veterans.  If you loved Rage Against the Machine and the powerful lyrics of songs like "Killing in the Name of" & "Testify", you will definitely dig Outernational.
Madame So (picture courtesy of

As for the London based artist; her musical name is Madame So. I found her looking at some of the articles/blogposts on a website centered on the afropunk movement. Using mostly drums and guitar riffs, Madame So brings a throwback to Hole & Polaris along with her own tint of lyrics in "Sell-by Date" and "Dig Deeper." And there is also the fact that her voice is smooth like melting sugar in your mouth. For those of you who love "Violet" & "This World" by Hole, you will definitely love Madame So. Check her out on her bandcamp website here.

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYBODY!!! *blows foghorn and dances in confetti*.

Should have done that yesterday but here it is! *continues to tapdance*

Lately on my own time I have been looking for some shoes and handbags to start the new year. Out with the old and in with the new and if you can't get with the new then twist the old to make it new.

I did get a few new stuff under 20 bucks just to save myself some money.

One of them was this awesome handbag straight from this website called

You can sign up as a member for free with using your email address and you can look for handbags and shoes for only 40 bucks. As a starting member you get $20 off your first purchase. After that the next month that follows, if you can't find what you are looking for or can't buy anything you can click on the button "skip the month" and that's that. The keywords here to click on the buttons because if you don't you get charged 40 bucks on your account as a member. Sounds tricky but you can take the risk if the shoes and handbags are worth it to you.

However, you can always check out for rockin' shoes and handbags. Just recently I found some cool ankle boots that are warm inside and all velcro outside. Sounds tacky but the way they look is not.  

No strings to tie, just side zippers to zip up and you're done. I got them in brown and so far they have gotten me warm for 3 hours before New Years ball dropped. Talk about awesome. I am planning to somehow put some studs on the straps to give it an edge. When I do, I'll post an update to see how it went, here and on Rockinglicious' tumblr. Otherwise, let me know what you think.
