holiday voodoo (haiku)

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Ever suck a candy cane into a sharp point and end up puncturing your lip with it?  Before you know it: hot blood and peppermint.  A perfect marriage of flavor!

Guess whose going to see The Dresden Dolls on January 10th?  ME!  I’m over-the-moon excited about it.  Brechtian Punk cabaret, baby, hoO!   If you don’t know who they are I may have to glove slap you.  Go watch some Dresden Doll videos post haste!  Check for show dates in your city/country here.  I can’t believe it, but here they are performing at the Tampa Theater which I blogged a bit about once before.  It’s old, allegedly haunted and just so atmospheric. They couldn’t have picked a better location in this area.  Hey, I just realized that now the interwebz will know where to find me.  O.o  Well, I guess if you ever planned on stalking me, this is your big chance!

Earlier tonight I was peeking at my traffic stats and part of that is seeing search terms that people use and this site comes up as a result.  I often find the terms rather amusing but tonight I found them poetic.  I will now present my first ever search term poetry.  I changed nothing really, not even the order of the terms.  I just broke them up into groups for the sake of rythym and added punctuation.
*clears throat*

Suicide twisters,

Lucid pictures,

Tattooed pinup kisses –

Boy statue lost.

Pretty awesome, huh?  Who knew something dark and beautiful was lurking amongst the data.

    I’d love to learn the art of making dolls.
    I think “voodoo” dolls can reflect both
    positive and negative energies. The
    trick is to choose the symbolic materials
    softly, with meaning (with pointy candy
    canes and blood, if that’s your milieu).
    I’d stuff mine with used post-its I have
    stuck everywhere. It’d be inspirational,
    a muse, a reminder doll. I would never
    forget something important again…

    Oh! I almost forgot my haiku!
    In honour of the Dresden Dolls:

    coin operated
    santa plastic fantasy
    automatic joy

    Vendetta attempts
    to cure the holiday blues
    with acupuncture

    do you suppose they’ll ban candy canes from airline carry-on baggage next?

    Sera – I’ve been really wanting to make some dolls too. crudely stitched, weird, wonderful. that’s the vision. hehe.

    justme – i’d be surprised if they weren’t already. it’s out of control.

    cheers for the haiku action! moarplzkthx.

    suck on candy canes
    until they are razor sharp
    impale the fat elf

    I always end up with a mega sharp peice of candy in my cheek every time i have a candy cane. But they’re so awesome!

    Peppermint pleasures
    skewers and stabbings in the
    fat elfin belly!

    ^_^ Wootness to the Xmas Haikus! WOOHOO!

  9. calan Says:

    awesome until someone loses an eye. or is it awesome when some someone loses an eye? i forget. 😛

  10. Seraphine Says:

    I wanted so badly to find some jelly
    eyes last Halloween. You’d think if
    someone loses an eye, there would
    be eyes to find, but nooo. It’s impossible.
    Or just my luck. Someone has a jar of
    them somewhere, and isn’t sharing.

  11. calan Says:

    if i knew you wanted them i would have totally shared. i gave out gummy fangs and eyeballs this year. XD

  12. Seraphine Says:

    Aww Calan, hugs!
