Beatrix Ost


Beatrix Ost- artist and writer. 



I just love her style and that she doesn't let age get in the way. 
In fact, I think she got better with age.

What is this? Halloween? I have been in a horror mood for the last couple of weeks. From 80's horror synthwave to 70's horror erotica to UFO's to horror comics. This interest was sparked by the show I'm currently binging, Dark Shadows ( I have like 600 episodes left, it's taken about 2 years to get to episode 800). Anyways, I saw this funny but ghoulish comic photo on 
stranger mysteries comic #11

 Ben Von Strawn's Instagram and had to find it. It is from this 1950's horror comic called 
 Each issue has about 3-4 stories. I just imagine how exciting and terrifying at the 
time it was published and especially for youth. Sadly, I don't get those fun fear feelings anymore.
I use to get as a kid (jaded) but I still enjoy trying.

What I am also most excited about is this new comic coming out called Gothic Tales of Haunted Love. They have a kickstarter going,the great thing about this new book is it features lots of diversity of races and orientations, something vintage gothic romance comics didn't have. My two favorite things wrapped up together HORROR and LOVE. 

 Gothic things remind me how my store was when I first started it. I wanted it to be a dark,romantic and modern jewelry store. I have fallen off the mark trying please people, because it pays the bills. I want to go back though, maybe I can revamp the shop. Who knows?

Daughters of Darkness

Everyday is Halloween for me. Over the past couple of weeks, I have lucked upon Giallo films, which lead to erotic horror films of the past. Giallo films are from an era of Italian films that favored style over substance but became cult classics. Erotic thrillers and horror films similar to that style are quite similar. How I came to watch this movie was through a suggestion and because I recognized one of the main characters through my favorite TV shows, Dark Shadows. Servant to Barnabus Collins(head vampire in charge), Willie Loomis played by John Karlen costars in this vampire horror film known as The Daughters of Darkness(1971) or Les Levres Rouges. Not to be confused with Vampyres: Daughters of Darkness(1974); which I also accidentally watched, thinking it was the previous film. This film is just beautiful reds, interiors,fashion, and glamour.

San Junipero #2

I don't know if its because these are "interesting times" or because I'm just nostalgic, but man I miss the 80s and 90s. I really don't know what this style of art is called but I guess you can call it "VHS Cover Art" or 80's "SciFi Art".

The world does not GIVE you opportunities,
the world destroys the opportunities.
It breaks the heart.
I should have listened to my mother,
when I was 10 years old.
I should have spent the rest of my life watching
TV and hiding from the world like my mother.
So I don't want
hear anymore about Mimi.
She was wrong,
she had her head in the clouds,
and it was full of stupid ideas,
and it gave me stupid ideas.
But this?
This stupid, stupid idea!
