Just discovered this duo via “A Darker Shade of Pagan” radio show, which I highly recommend if you enjoy music in the vein of Dead Can Dance, Medieval Babes, Kate Bush and the like.
Dolls are being created, projects being plotted, stores setting up….
I will be posting more soon, with the latest goings on here at Goblinfruit Studio.
But, a few little tidbits to tide you over:
And a wonderful post, “Dare to be Foolish” from artist and writer, Terri Windling.
An excerpt: “While our intellect chases its bright and lofty visions, our most original, powerful ideas tend to rise from muddy, murky depths below: from the clouded waters of the subconscious; from the baffling landscape of nightmare and dream; from the odd obssessions, weird fixations, and uncanny flashes of intuition that rise up from those strange parts of ourselves that we know and approve of least; from those places most likely to make us feel ridiculous, and exposed. The muse, if we follow her far enough, and honestly enough, demands that we bare it all: our angel wings and our asses’ ears. It doesn’t matter if we’re writing genre fiction and not memoir; it doesn’t matter if we’re painting fairy tales and not self-portraits. “All art is autobiographical,” said Federico Fellini; “the pearl is the oyster’s autobiography.”

Enjoy. See you tomorrow for Tuesday Tunes.
A classic. Perhaps the perfect tune to welcome the 2012 presidential candidates who should be assaulting us with their campaigns any day now….
