everyday is like sunday

Just milling around my apartment. Cleaning, cooking, reading, getting ready to scrimmage the Chicago Outfit. How ’bout you?

somewhere over the rainbow

This post from WHORANGE is giving me some major inspiration for my new apartment. I love decorating with stacks of books.

And perhaps something like this on my shelves?

I need a new book to read. Any suggestions?

morbid chic

Wow. I stumbled across this book of photographs…i’m infatuated.

Melanie Pullen lives in  Silverlake, but her photographs have taken her all over the world. Her tableaus are created with painstaking attention to detail (using as many as 60 people on a shoot) and research (vintage crime-scene photos, first-hand accounts, and documents Pullen mined from the files of the LAPD) and the end result is images of crazy beauty.

Morbid? yes. Gorgeous? yes. Is it creepy that I find this so beautiful? Of course,  I’ve always thought graves and cemeteries were things of beauty too…

And the book reminds me of this photo by Robert Wiles:
