The Tell Tale

"Tell-Tale" full movie in full HD from Greg Williams on Vimeo.

I love those kind of sexy, mysterious, film-noir atmosphere and aesthetics.

This great little short-film is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's phantastic story "The Tell-Tale Heart".

Weapons Of Beauty

A fashion designer who took the next step into an unusual field. Manuel Albarran calls it "Metal Couture". I have a bad crush on anything amour-like for costumes. So of course... I kneel down for these warriors and amazons. What an amazing work of art!!!

Royal Framing

What a great DIY idea! This is a frame, hanging at Herve Pierre's (designer for Carolina Herrera) home in New York City.
A frame decorated with currogated cardboard. Ok I must admit there many hours/days of work in this.... but how awesome is this?!

Chinese Art Of Couture

Stunning creations by the Chinese fashion-designer Guo Pei. She is a design-star in China. She was f.e. responsible for some of the costumes for the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008. Her style oscillates in between Asian taste of glamour with waterfalls of rhinestones, rich colors and opulent embroidery, and western art of couture and pattern-making.
What can I say, apart from aaaaaaaahh... and ooooooooooohhh!!!

Explore. Dream. Discover

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Boudoir Dreams

Dreams of dancing odalisques, secret seduction in a opium-den, mysteries of the boudoir... enjoy the beautiful world of George Barbier.


Porn music does not allways have to be cheap and cheesy... it can be punk-rock!
Bruce La Bruce, Canadian subversive shocking porn-director of outstanding trashy brilliance, made this video for the dutch singer France de Griessen. And it's starring porn star Francois Sagat who looks like a cute little slapped puppy in this video. The song "I Want To Be You" is part of the soundtrack of La Bruce's latest splatter porn-film "L.A. Zombie".
