What Do You Know Of Love?

They will say I smoked cigarettes and marijuana, cursed hoarse as a crow in all my languages, and loved morphine and Demerol and tequila and pulque, women and men. I will shrug my illusion of shoulders and answer that I am a water woman, not a vessel, not something you can sail or charter. I am instead the tributary, the river, the fluid source, and the sea itself. I am all her rainy implications. And what do you, with your rusted compass, know of love?

Tango Y Amor

OMG this makes me want to learn to dance Tango! So elegant and sexy.
Then I would go to a debauched festivity, maybe something like "Dances of Vice" on Valentines Day?! To drown in a dance of passion and desire :-)

What a Woman: Leonor Fini

Leonor Fini: Surreal Thing
She produced the most outré art, liked to cross-dress and had a penchant for living in ménages à trois. And yet, despite once being infamous around the world, Leonor Fini is all but forgotten these days.
"Marriage never appealed to me, I have never lived with one person. Since I was 18, I've always preferred to live in a sort of community - A big house with my atelier and cats and friends, one with a man who was rather a lover and another who was rather a friend. And it has always worked."
-Leonor Fini-
“She is magnificent, perturbing, mocking enigmatic, terrible and compassionate. She is Leonor Fini; painter of the surreal, illustrator of books, theater. Her art is the crack in the mirror, the edge of the equation, the dream of tremendous important half-grasped upon awakening, whose meaning dissolves with daylight.”
-Catherine Styles McLeod-

Drink Every Experience To It's Extent!

“Know who you are, be prepared for everything, drink every experience to its extent & expand! It can be a bumpy ride but, trust me, it’s worth it DARLING!”

Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey

Trixie Little and the evil Hate Monkey are joining Helsinki's Burlesque Festival.
They are simply hilarious. I love them!
And dear men, join the workshop (04.02.) with the king of evil, the devil among monkeys: The Evil Hate Monkey.

The Evil Hate Monkey offers a study of burlesque for men.
Whether you are macho or dandy the same rules of glamour and
theatricality apply. Monkey will lead you through dance and theater exercises
to help sharpen your character choices, play up the playfulness in
your moves and explore blending stereotypes.
Come dressed for movement!
Hatefully Yours,
-The evil Hate Monkey-

White Nights

This is so beautiful!!! I'm awestruck... Love the colours, the (how can I say) aesthetically dilapidated still lifes, and those wonderful balkanesque headpieces... awweeee! Like an ancient tale about Siberian faeries and Tundra-princesses.
