10 reasons below why you really need to check out the Vintage Gal Tumblr by Cat:
Name’s Cat. I’m an L.A. gal who loves everything from classic movie queens to pinups to classic horror. My likes vary a lot. Having said that, I refuse to fit in a box or apologize for being me.
OK I admit it – I missing being an active blogger so Cakehead Loves Evil is back if that is OK with everyone? Oh I will also be sharing a lot via the Miss Cakehead Facebook page. In brief I realized the other day that with over 5 million views I must have been doing something right with this blogging lark so I should really carry on. Hope this makes you happy, I am actually rather excited.
As some of you may remember I am openly obsessed with the creative randomness of Japanese Love Hotels ever since reading this book. I should add for clarity not the sex side but the what the hell was the designer thinking, and how the hell do you get off on that wondering side.
With a whopping 500 million visits a year, love hotels – establishments that offer couples a private, short-stay location in which they can indulge in the pleasures of the flesh – are a booming business in Japan. Indeed, it’s been estimated that 1.4 million Japanese people, or 2% of the country’s population, visit a love hotel each day.
Having been fascinated with them for years – and it being hard to find out as much as I would like to know online – there has not been much fresh content to blog on a Love Hotel theme for a year or so now (for the record Gang Snowman is still my favorite). But that has changed with the discovery of a rich seam of abandoned love hotel images online – still not as scary as the derelict Mr Blobby Land photography though. Nothing will ever be that scary.
Emerald Street were right these are amazing, especially the confused cat at the end!
One thing I am passionate about with this crazy Eat Your Heart Out business is to continue to push the limits of edible art - well get the cake makers to push the limits to be precise - and create things which have never been seen before. These incredible baby heads from Conjurer's Kitchen a case in point. I also think it is this ethos which leads to the creation of viral marketing, PR & advertising stunts - such as the Resident Evil Human Butchery - …
UPDATE & WHOOP! Voted one of the top 5 PR stunts of 2012 alongside such company as Red Bull Stratos. Thanks to @copyranter for the inclusion.
I wanted to write in a little more detail about the Resident Evil 6 creative activity which led up to the launch of Wesker & Son on the 26th September. This includes a press pack that horrified everyone, got one phone call from a legal team and made one person sick.
I am pretty sure these urgh but medically correct cupcakes from Sarah Hardy will be one of the top sellers at EYHO this year. Educational and gross it's hard to think of a better Halloween cupcake, and besides spiders, witches, cats, pumpkins, ghost and all the other cake decorating cliches are banned!
Not for the feint hearted here is the image the original cupcake was based on. Enjoy your breakfast people!!!
