Einmahl mehr, mit Gefuhl
Since we still don't know what the Krewe de Doom's plans are, here are those of the Krewe of Morbid Fascinations and Death Monkeys:

Meet in the courtyard at Pravda, 9 p.m. BYO cockroaches, black beads, and glitter. I will not be sharing my pound of glitter except with people on the street (do da dee dum day). Commence drinking. Be dressed as a Johnny Depp character.

Sometime around 10:30, stumble out of Pravda, up Decatur through the sweaty, vomiting throngs of "visitors." Thrash those who refuse to make way with canes, straight razors or knifelike attachments to fingers. Go up St. Philip to Royal, taking care to throw things at the Flanagan's crowd. Left on Royal, to St. Peter. Left on St. Peter to Exchange Alley. Upon arrival at Pirate's Alley, take a break to throw things at/thrash people who will be urinating on the cathedral. Proceed to Jackson Square. Find people who will be telling us that we are going to hell or are simply passing out literature saying so. Give them beads, cockroaches and glitter. Perhaps harangue them. Proceed in a downtown direction on Chartres until Gov. Nicholls, thence to Decatur, thence to Esplanade.

All plans subject to change should the KdD announce something.

I haven't had time to modify the flyer image, so kurzerhand:

The Krewe of Morbid Fascinations And Death Monkeys
Since Krewe de Noir is on hiatus this year, the Krewe of Morbid Fascinations and Death Monkeys will be parading alone.

Our theme this year is Night Of A Thousand Depps. If parading with us, dress up as whichever Johnny Depp character takes your fancy (although no one will get it if you pick Gator Lerner or Glenn Lantz - stay away from the GLs).

If, like me, you enjoy throwing large amounts of glitter, you can obtain 1 lb. tubs of it from Jefferson Variety, 239 Iris Ave., just over the tracks off of Jefferson Highway. Otherwise I suggest rubber cockroaches. I'll look into obtaining black beads in bulk.

When I have the time, I'll put together a flyer image and route map. The traditional time of marshaling at 9 p.m. on Saturday before Mardi Gras will not change; the place probably will. More will follow.

Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in that bleak December
If by bleak you mean a muggy night where we could have used the AC in the middle of the night in the middle of December.

Here's the Shadow Gallery playlist and lots of pictures from last night. Thanks especially to Ami and Leah for their performance.

And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.Collapse )

Hold Your Razor High
Euan! Euan! Eu-Oi-Oi-Oi!

The Krewe Of Morbid Fascination And Death Monkeys shall march again as a splinter group of the Krewe de Noir. Where last year we marched as Robert Smiths, this year we shall march as Sweeney Todds and Mrs. Lovetts. Costume is mandatory, or you can't be a nonconformist.

p.s. Carrying actual straight razors or cleavers in the French Quarter is, for legal reasons, a terrible idea, and if you are arrested for doing so I will not defend you for free. Rolling pins, on the other hand, are not contrary to any law that I know of.

Pictures from the Picnic
So here are the pictures. It's kind of picture heavy, so you might want to wait for it to fully load.
Also, I realize that I may have acted immature at times, and if I bugged anyone I humbly apologize.

Dear Minions
So, apparently someone posted an invitation to an anti-VNV party tonight at the Dragon's Den (not sure on which community, probably noladarkside), but it was quickly removed.

'Fess up.

A Midsummer Night's Dream Friday June 22nd at the Dragon's Den
Polish your horns and strap on your glamours. When the Northern Hemisphere points to the sun, Shadow Gallery shall return to the Dragon's Den with A Midsummer Night's Dream, the best excuse in years to sprout hooves and gambol. There will be costume prizes, things given away, and dancing the solstice away.

I don't do the copy writing, so on with the flyer.

Thanks to Michaelle Nolan for the theme.

Apologies to John Singer Sargent for the design.

Today's Fresh Yet Truly Morbid Fact!

Chinese man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing 30 corpses from local
graveyards, cooking soup with their flesh and crushing the bones in a bid to
heal his sick wife. Police in Kaijiang county, southwestern Sichuan province,
detained the 51-year-old, identified by his surname Huang, after corpses had
disappeared mysteriously from local cemeteries since 1988. According to
preliminary investigations, he snatched the bodies after a fortune teller told
him fresh body parts were the only remedy for his wife's seemingly incurable
illness, which was not identified. He was told to carve off the flesh and cook
soup for his wife, or grind the bones into a powder that he was to smear on her
forehead. Huang was arrested after comprehensive detective work, triggered by
outrage when a recently buried corpse was discovered near a local market with
both arms missing and the chest carved open. The 16-year-long rampage had caused
wild rumors to circulate, and grieving relatives had kept a vigil at their
loved-ones' graves for up to six months at a time in an effort to protect their
bodies. According to traditional Chinese beliefs, it is essential to be buried
with all body parts intact, as otherwise they will be missing in the afterlife.

Never trust a man who keeps a pig farm
From the Morbid Fact du Jour list:

Today's Beastly Yet Truly Morbid Fact!

A farmer’s wife was eaten alive by four pigs after falling into their sty. Irma
Molnar, 56, who was knocked unconscious, was found clinging to life by husband
Sandor, but she died later in hospital. Dr Dan Grigorescue, of Brasov, Romania,
said: "Her ears and half her face were missing. Her fingers had been bitten
off." Grief-stricken Sandor vowed to destroy the pigs, sobbing: "I’ll never
breed such beasts again."

Things found while searching for costumes:
From http://www.funerals.org/bookstore/index.htm:

Every adult American should have one in the freezer. What? Before I Go, You Should Know — an end-of-life planning kit. Comes in a plastic button-tie pouch with state-specific Living Will and other advance directives, plus a 20-page write-in booklet with illustrations by Edward Gorey. (Some of us jokingly refer to this as "The Gorey Details" packet.) For those of you who are travelers, you'll find this a convenient size to pop into your suitcase. Contains the brochure "Death Away from Home," a directory of U.S. funeral consumer groups, and a checklist of other important documents to store here (like military discharge papers). Order two for a couple.

<~~~~FREE refrigerator magnet with order.

This ad is for Before I Go, You Should Know. The price is $10, and it has a Gorey illustration on the cover.

That'll Larn Ya!

From the Morbid Fact du Jour mailing list:

Today's Severe Yet Truly Morbid Fact!

A Kenyan villager has cut off his penis and testicles with a kitchen knife "to
teach his wife a lesson." Alfonse Mumbo, of Kajulu Wath Orego, near Kisumu,
severed his genitalia after accusing his wife, Penina of unfaithfulness.
Officers say the 38-year-old former barber said he wanted "to give her a free
hand to go after other men." He told police he loved her so much, he could make
the sacrifice. Mr Mumbo has told the East African Standard: "It was around 8
o'clock in the morning when I started feeling dizzy. My wife had left for the
farm. I don't know what came over me. All I remember is walking around the
compound anxiously and answering many calls of nature. I found myself disgusted
with the penis and decided to cut it off. I went into the kitchen, took a knife,
undressed and just chopped it off. The knife was too sharp and before I realised
what I had done, it was too late."

He said blood gushed out of the gaping hole in his crotch and he says he began
screaming with pain. Mrs Mumbo came home 10 minutes after the incident, with her
brother-in-law, to find her husband unconscious in a pool of blood. He was taken
to the New Nyanza General Hospital, where medics had a hard time stemming the
blood. Mrs Mumbo has now dismissed her husband's allegations of affairs outside
the marriage. She told the newspaper she loves her husband very much, and could
not do that to him. The 29-year-old says she feels sorry for her husband and has
asked people to stop blaming her for his actions. "When I am walking around the
village or going on safari, those who recognise me talk about me in low tones,"
says Mr Mumbo, who is recovering from a bladder operation.

Victory not vocabulary
I've allowed myself to get into a flame war with some VNV fans on Youtube, pointless as it is.

Anyhow, one of them offered the following:


Since when can somebody dance to lyrics so nihilistic? Usually negative lyrics leave one flat, not in the mood to jump up out their seats and start dancing for all its worth. One must hand it to VNV Nation that they make music that is completely nugatory into something that is ultimately danceable and celebratory. This song is about meaninglessness in the face of universe, but it has a beat that makes one want to dance and celebrate the fact.

My response:

From dictionary.com:


1. of no real value; trifling; worthless.
2. of no force or effect; ineffective; futile; vain.
3. not valid.

I'd say that decribes VNV Nation perfectly.
