Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

I was having a dreadful day in the hours before I discovered Mirusbella on YouTube and her gorgeous cover of Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger. As I slipped away into the song, life didn't seem so terrible anymore. I may have even smiled. Hailing from Germany, this multi-talented, mystifying artist has been delighting me with her art… Continue reading Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

An Interview With Beyond Man

This interview was originally posted on A Hex On Your Head, but I figured it could do with a share here too, as I know some of my wolf pack will appreciate it. Well, isn’t this fucking something! We got Beyond Man for you. A few weeks ago, I threw an email at Meghan with… Continue reading An Interview With Beyond Man

Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

What you are about to read is profound. Extremely fucking profound. It’s probably one of the most profound pieces of writing I’ve read in my 34 (I’m not 35 in September, you are) years. I came across it while reading Creatrix: She Who Makes by Lucy H Pearce. It’s written by a lady called Dawn Conlan-Grant. I’ve tried to… Continue reading Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

A Pack To Howl With

I've been feeling abysmal since early afternoon. It felt like death was waiting with his door open. That might sound like I'm overly dramatic, but for about two hours, I felt sick, so sick. I left a friend a voice message, and I broke down. I couldn't not cry. And my stomach, my god-forsaken stomach,… Continue reading A Pack To Howl With

People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

I would like to introduce you to the cover of my upcoming poetry collection, People of the Sea Ice. The image is c.1900s-1910s and was photographed by Whitney's Photographic Studio (established in 1904). This collection is the culmination of many months of hard work. It's been the most challenging collection to write to date, as… Continue reading People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?

Well met, friends. Hope you're all having a better week than me. I haven't been feeling good for a while now. It like I have the flu that can't decide if it wants to be full-on flu or not, so it's just toying with me. As a result, my concentration is buggered, and I'm not… Continue reading What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?

The Woods Do Not Want Us Here – New Song From Cave Mouth

If you're wondering why I don't post as much music here as I used to, it's because I have, along with my Sister Shaman and bandmate Meghan Wood (AKA Crown Of Asteria - check her out), a blog called A Hex On Your Head where we share music most days. Psst…between you and me, there's… Continue reading The Woods Do Not Want Us Here – New Song From Cave Mouth

June (and some of July’s) Self-Portraits

I was supposed to be sharing self-portraits just from June, but ended up with some of July's in the June's Portraits folder and I'm too knackered to take them out now, so you're getting some of July's creations too. And before you scream in the comments, yes, I'm very much aware that the bone in… Continue reading June (and some of July’s) Self-Portraits

The Darker, The Better – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

Would someone be so kind as to explain exactly where the actual fuck this past week has gone? Time is taking the piss this year. Despite this somewhat aggressive introduction, I've had a primarily superb weekend. I video messaged with a friend today without hiding my face. I went live on Instagram for the first… Continue reading The Darker, The Better – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?

Friends, hello. This week has been a beast determined to eat me from the inside out. I've been feeling weak and moody and hellishly frustrated at not being able to march forward at my usual pace. (Oh, and my stomach is still giving me grief.) I sat down today, though and gave myself a good… Continue reading What Wyrd Shit Is She Up To Now?
