Stigmata – Large Modern Distressed Leather Cuff
Nearly two months since our last installment, not much can be reported in the town of Leathbridge. When the temperature descends southwards to the single degrees, most of the town’s residents hibernate. The ground is hard so most of Quiet Side’s activities involve minimal maintenance. Young Gus shows up early to brew the coffee. The Intern is on winter break, though plans have been made for him to return in the spring.
We’ve been thankful to avoid the snowfall so far, though it’s a looming shadow we expect to fall soon. It’ll be Humphrey’s first snowfall, having celebrated his first Christmas with his family. Poinsettia was excited to be in season, showing up to the Local Holiday Party with a few of the poisonous blossoms pinned beautifully in her hair.
The year brings new expectations and excitement for the possibility of what can happen and the dread at what will surely take place. The equilibrium should always have you prepared for the worst but looking forward to the best, leading us to kick off the year’s first Etsy spotlight with the wares of Albino Alligator.
Pugenstein Frankenstein Pug Horror Art Print
It would be wise to spend the next two months pondering what you can shed from your life, the items that no longer accurately represent your life. Life is too short to be wasted on clutter and too long to be saddled with insincere expression. Perhaps you own a pug or have fond memories of a former pet. Clear out a space on your wall and place this print.
Vampire Skull Mehndi Horror Art Print
The effort against the Myerficiation of blood suckers has picked up steam. Thought the damage has been done, leaving us as a culture years of rehabilitation ahead before the vampire regains respect. Still, be ahead of the curve with this Mehndi horror art print. There will always be skulls, there will always be vampires, there will always be fanged fears of the night.
Aqua Skull Mehndi Horror Art Print
2012 should be a year of experimentation beyond the norms while maintaining a healthy respect for the conventions and traditions that have brought us here. So if we eschew a wardrobe of complete black for a splash of color, your den can represent this as well with the Aqua Skull print. With music devolving into noise and our civilization mildewing away to cannibalism and chaos, why not try something different? All you have to lose is your life.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Chop Top Tribute
As we said, maintain a healthy respect for those who came before you. Appreciate your ancestors. Respect your elders until they try to put you down. Then, go for the jugular as you fight for your space. No one should ever try to put you down. If you have to fight for survival, and it’s clear you’re going to lose, make sure to take as many of them down with you. This has more to do with this magnificent rendition of Bill Mosley’s iconic character Chop Top than what might lead on, though we’ll let you discover the connection.
Death’s Head Moth Silence Lambs Mehndi Horror Art Print
If there is any evidence that you have as much right to life as anyone, take look to the mainstream hit of ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ a horror movie that garnished respect and accolades a plenty. There is room here for you. There is a future for you if you want it. You will eventually die, as everything dies. This might frighten you as the concept is beyond horrifying. But in the time between now and then is your life. Please, enjoy as much of it as you can.
Enjoy the goods of Albino Alligator. You can find the store here, with cuffs, art and more available. We shall speak with you again next week with our next edition of Tuesday uEtsy.
