I’m going to try and start doing one of these every Sunday, just to see how easily I can keep to a very loose structure here. If I don’t feel I have a sufficient number of links for one week, what I’ve decided to share will get bumped to the next Sunday —after all, I’m calling it “Start Your Week Off Right”— but I’m defining “a sufficient number” here as just low enough to avoid making a habit of skipping weeks.
Let’s start here:
A Modern Ritual of Adoration for Aphrodite and Eros —I don’t think I got to this the when it was first posted in November, and for that I apologise.
DieselPunks.org is a site and forum I discovered this past week, and I’m in love. Apparently Dieselpunk is based on the era between WWI and the Atomic Age, and has considerably fewer watch parts all over it than Steampunk. Apparently, therte’s also a derivative, Decopunk, which some fans of Nick Ottens’ webzine, The Gatehouse, refer to as “Ottensian”.
These Art Deco computer cases have been on my “Wish Fantasy List” for some time now. I will choke a baby for Decomatic; I will choke two if you can also get me the speakers and portrait (tall) monitor.
Oh, and here’s a bunch of Erté illustrations. I’ve loved Erté since I was twelve.
Dancing for the Gods doesn’t have a whole lot up just yet, but yes, it did inspire my Isadora love from yesterday. Definitely on the blogroll now.
