If you are celebrating the 4th of July on Friday, have fun and try not to blow up. Check out this x-ray of a hand that held on to a firework a little too long. Be glad it’s just the x-ray because the other photo was a mangled mess of flesh and blood. I decided to spare you that one. If you dig gore you can find it by googling firecracker hand and clicking images. Who knows if it’s even real. The internet lies and I wasn’t interested enough to investigate it farther. I just liked the mangled skeletal hand. 🙂
Last Saturday, I attended one of the coolest events ever. It was a theatrical fashion show entitled A Vampire’s Kiss at the Ybor Cigar Theater in Tampa. Designer Jolyane Santiago’s stunning gothic fashion was showcased on the catwalk with sensual, dark choreographed movements. As various models stalked down the runway to feed on a gorgeous bare chested young male I knew this was a fashion show, I would not forget. There was also a girl with mascara smeared eyes brought to the center stage a la Anne Rice’s parisian vampire theater in Interview with a Vampire. The soon to be victim knelt before us, oblivious of the crowd, trembling and softly praying before being feasted upon by two lovely vamps. Wonderful. The fantastic presentation really fit the fashion, rather than overshadow it. The designs were just as stimulating as the show itself.
In addition to the fashion was original art by Joe Traina as well as live paintings by Christine A. Galas. If the visual feast of A Vampire’s Kiss is any indication of the kind of stuff going on at this venue, you can bet I’ll be keeping a close eye on it. I hunger for more. Rawr!
That’s all for now. Don’t blow yourself up this weekend. But, if you do, youTube it or something. 😀
