“A cop told me, a long time ago, that there’s no substitute for knowing what you’re doing. Most of us scribblers do not. The ones that’re any good are aware of this. The rest write silly stuff. The trouble is this: The readers know it.”—George V. Higgins

The Cure, “Pictures of You”

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real 
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are 
All I can feel

sockdreams:

Helena Bonham-Carter is stylish and slick as the murderous Mrs Lovett in Tim Burton’s rendition ofSweeny Todd.

Her look is dark and slightly tattered, with frayed edges on her chemise and the damask on her skirt faded and worn. Her vertically striped stockings may have once been a cheerful red, but have faded over time, and her ever-present lace mitts surely have been patched once or twice.

In her daydreaming, her clothing is vibrant and colourful. Her sweet navy bathing costume is accompanied by blue skies and sweet blue and white striped stockings.

Mrs Lovett is such a fascinating character, it’s no wonder anyone would want to play dress-up in her closet.

Shakespears Sister, “Hello (Turn Your Radio On)”

Hello, hello, turn your radio on.
Is there anybody out there?
Help me sing my song.
La la la life is a strange thing—
Just when you think you learned how to use it, 
It’s gone.

Due to high sulfur levels, inhabitants of the Izu Islands had to wear gas masks to survive. What results? Some of the scariest wedding photos ever.


Are you my mummy?
