Rabbit Season!!
Rabbit Season!!

(It’s been a while since my last post here, work’s been challenging and I’m trying to figure out a balance of life/work/projects. Since Facebook started throttling my traffic Thrifthorror hasn’t gotten much traction, so I’m thinking of going to one really good post on Mondays, maybe more around the holidays.) Easter is just around the […]

Dolphins in Bondage
Dolphins in Bondage

From the new hit film, “Fifty Shades of Flipper.” See it in your local theater. They call him Flipper. Flipper–flipcuffs restraining, No one you see, ties knots tight as he… Although I’d be happier if there were knots in this intimate little tableaux, as opposed to just a gold chain and two mid-sternum attachment points. I didn’t […]

From the ‘Creepy Little Dead Girl’ Files
From the ‘Creepy Little Dead Girl’ Files

We talk about this film: Cagney fed this broad grapefruit Faster than she could eat it and then she loved him. “That won’t always work,” I told Iron Mike. The teeth are never finally the teeth of love. …This is a thing that happened, 1931 “The Public Enemy.”  This is a poem that happened, “Iron […]

Putti: Creepy as F***
Putti: Creepy as F***

Technically they’re not cherubim. Cherubim are awesome angelic beast-things Putti are horrible pink lumps with wings. And the stuff they get up to around Valentine’s Day, it’s…just weird. like reenacting “The Drowning of Ophelia” with a horrible pedophilia/seafood vibe. What’s this? Some sort of beautiful woman/girl/boy/larva? Either way, s/he/it’s torpid and I’m armed. I could […]

LET THERE BE….LIPS!
LET THERE BE….LIPS!

Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still… Just a little kiss for Valentine’s day. Because I love you. You know who you are. And you should be afraid. So…very…afraid. I’d be curious to know if this was the photographer’s girlfriend. Or boyfriend, those could be drag lips. It’s really hard to tell […]

Cat from Outer Space
Cat from Outer Space

Tremble, ye mortals, with fear and dander, for Great Cathulhu has come among us! I’m pretty sure this has some sort of function, I’ll be damned if I know what it is though. Maybe a broom cover that does not detract from the functionality of the broom (plus has the added feature of the pleasure […]

Tell me why (I don’t like Mondays)
Tell me why (I don’t like Mondays)

If you look very closely, you can just about see where the artist gave up.   Although it might have actually been shortly after he bought the canvas. Goodwill on 2222 and Lamar, Austin

Steve.
Steve.

It’s best if you think of Steve as a metaphor. Do not ask who Steve is, if you do, you’re really just missing the point. We are all Steve. But some of us are more Steve than others. Personally, I am mostly Steve on Tuesdays, anywhere between 2:00 and 4:30 PM, and the entirety of […]

Titus 3:3-6
Titus 3:3-6

“At one time we were wicked, but…he Saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior…” That’s by way of explanation, but I’m not really sure what we’re explaining. Except there are sure as heck a lot of these […]

Just ducky
Just ducky

Was anything ever improved by painting it on black velvet? It didn’t work for Elvis. And it didn’t work for Donald, either. What’s not to love. It’s ducks carved out of some strange duck dimension with an ice cream scoop, weird random solid forms come together to create a state of low-threat copyright infringement. The […]
