Froot-blood and scone

On the last day of summer I baked my first scone of the season. It was accompanied by my favorite tea, butter, and delicious froot-blood, aka rasperry jam.

Looking forward to some crisp weather for more baking and tea-making!

Creepy glowing mushroom and skull-girl

I had some glow-sticks for Halloween and put them near these cool mushroom decorations that I bought so that they glowed green. I took some pix with a tripod and long exposure. Neat…I want glowing mushroom decorations all over my house now. :)

Salem and Providence Halloween pictures

I was in Salem and Providence last year right before Halloween. I wanted to experience some crisp fall weather and get into a good Halloween spirit :)

In Providence I did this cool HP Lovecraft walking tour and got to visit a graveyard where both Poe and Lovecraft had hung out. Overall I had a really atmospheric and wonderful time. Walking around the neighborhoods of Salem and Providence at that time of year with blustery autumn weather provided the perfect Halloween feel that I was looking for. Here are some pictures I took when I was there.

Highgate Cemetery, London

I recently visited Highgate Cemetery in London. I was first made aware of this place via pictures by Simon Marsden and got to visit in October whilst on a trip to Europe. It was beautiful and wonderfully overgrown with moss-covered crumbling statues and fallen tombstones entwined with creeping flora. I liked the little village-area of Highgate too and had a delicious Cream Tea there.

Here are a few pix I took of the dark ‘n creepy splendor.

Prague and Bruges night photos

I took some night photos in Prague and Bruges that I thought were appropriate to the Dark and Creepy motif, so here they are :)

Walking around these places at night with hardly anyone around was an amazing experience. In Bruges, it had rained earlier so the cobblestones were wet, perfect…in Prague, it was a foggy night and I watched it drift over the spires of Tyn cathedral and the tower of the Charles bridge.

If you like these, I have an account at Flickr and posted more photos from Bruges, Ghent, Paris, Berchtesgaden, Salzburg, Vienna, Bern, Kandersteg, Prague, and Munich there…here’s the link if you want to see more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chromaticblack/collections/72157622661120281/

Not sure if this is creepy or beautiful or both but I just came across it and wanted to post it. Babelfish says it translates to “Procession in the Fog”.

My creepy “Graveyard Girl from the Dream City” painting

OK, here is another one of my own dark ‘n creepy paintings, I just finished it…it’s an undead-ish girl that dwells in a darkly beautiful graveyard on the edge of a shadowy dream-city.

Clowny Clown would prefer not to – Crispin Hellion Glover

I started this post ~6 months ago but have been busy with my art so this blog has been neglected :)

crispin-glover

I want to post some films and stuff that I like which contain the oft-creepy Crispin Glover:

Bartleby – “I’d prefer not to”. Odd movie, I really liked Maury Chaykin from the excellent Nero Wolfe in this one too.

Clowny Clown Clown (music video by Glover) – “I was walkin on the ground and I didn’t make a sound…I turned around, and I saw a clown.” When I first saw this video I was obsessed and watched it many, many times over a few days until I went (a bit more) insane…you can view the creepy awesome clowny on youtube.

Infamous David Letterman appearance – lol, check it out on youtube.

Dead Man (film by Jim Jarmusch) – “Look, they’re shooting buffalo”…his short scene in this movie was weird and great. The film itself is a modern classic as well, as is the score by Neil Young.

Back to the Future – McFly! “You’re my density…” — what a classic character. Not really creepy, but included here for completeness :)
