Gruesome Ghoul

The gruesome ghoul, the grisly ghoul,
without the slightest noise
waits patiently beside the school
to feast on girls and boys.
He lunges fiercely through the air
as they come out to play,
then grabs a couple by the hair
and drags them far away.
He cracks their bones and snaps their backs
and squeezes out their lungs,
he chews their thumbs like candy snacks
and pulls apart their tongues.
He slices their stomachs and bites their hearts
and tears their flesh to shreds,
he swallows their toes like toasted tarts
and gobbles down their heads.
Fingers, elbows, hands and knees
and arms and legs and feet –
he eats them with delight and ease,
for every part’s a treat.
And when the gruesome, grisly ghoul
has nothing left to chew,
he hurries to another school
and waits… perhaps for you…

But before the night is through…

TUNES

When you came in, the air went outAnd every shadow filled up with doubtI don’t know who you think you areBut before the night is throughI wanna do bad things with you

I’m the kind to sit up in his roomHeart sick and eyes filled up with blueI don’t know what you’ve done to meBut I know this much is trueI wanna do bad things with you, okay

When you came in the air went outAnd all those shadows there filled up with doubtI don’t know who you think you areBut before the night is throughI wanna do bad things with youI wanna do real bad things with you

I don’t know what you’ve done to meBut I know this much is trueI wanna do bad things with youI wanna do real bad things with you

“Lost in Time, and lost in Space… and Meaning.”

“And crawling on the planet’s face,
some insects called the human race.
Lost in time, and lost in space.
And meaning.”

[- Richard O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Show -]

Again I am coming to you with a wonderful memory of an amazing evening. A few days ago my sweet sister Vivien offered me to be part of one of her amazing, creative art shots. She asked me if I would have the new doll modifications from Salt & Pepper – certainly I do! She had built a wonderful set and had planned the shot for 5 people. It looked amazing and on her Flickr (HERE) you can see her amazing artwork of that picture. I tried to grab a shot too but it was one of those days where nothing wanted to razz and the more people you have the harder it goes. So I asked her if she would be ok with having  another shoot when she was done with just us 2 and lightly different poses. She said yes and did let me use the set she built too – Thank you for that Sis ♥♥♥.

It is so much fun to just do what you feel not running after deadlines only and it always feels like a little holiday for me when we work on some pictures together.

The whole theme looked very fragile and sweet and that is really easy for me as I am usually the dark and deep color lover, but it felt like a cool challenge and something new 😉

Thank you for another wonderful evening and a great time Sis ♥♥♥. If you want to know about her style.. just poke her 😉

Above you can see the try of my version… new but interesting, I hope you like it nevertheless!

Betrayed…

If you think you know people…

It is “amazing” how after all these years you still experience betrayal. You think you saw so much already, you already trust way less people than you used to and still some make it to disappoint and betray you.

This is for all of those – Karma will get you.

TUNES

You remember all their faultsAnd you don’t trust in any word they sayAnd you’re still waiting for the day whenYou can make them payAnd your blood is boiling and your head is explodingThe hopes are dying while the sky is about to fall

It’s time to open your eyes to knowYou’ve been used and betrayedIt’s time for you to have another go,Don’t leave it too lateAnd the sun is shining and you keep on fightingYou can be proud of yourself just never give in

Show them your middle fingerYou got to keep on going,Keep on screamingShow them your middle fingerYou got to keep on breathing,Don’t stop believing
