Happy Holidays from Blue Blood by Amelia G on Blue Blood

Happy Holidays from Blue Blood

So, SexyFandom was kind enough to point out that there actually is a SFW pic in this deathrock Xmas series which Forrest Black and I shot with our California Deathrock coffee table book covergirl Malice McMunn. The un-postable (well, at least here) portions of the double Malice update are, of…( Read more )

California Deathrock: Subculture Portraits by Forrest Black and Amelia G

You all probably recall that Forrest Black and I have been working on a photography art book of our portraits of the California Deathrock scene of the last 15+ years. I just wanted to let you all know that the book is about to come out! We shot the gorgeous and very unique Malice McMunn for the…( Read more )

So Glad this Election Cycle is Over

amelia g i voted

I think this is probably the most chagrined I have ever looked coming out of a voting booth. I am so glad this contentious, divisive, Kang and Kodos, total bummer of an election cycle is over. Hopefully, some of the gajillion California referendums will go a good way. Mostly, I am really glad this is over. I am looking forward to my friends going back to discussing music and books and art and sex and photography and pop culture and clubbing and cool business ideas and writing and basically topics we’d all really enjoy talking about.

28 Hours To Go, 354 Likes, Editing Film, Deathrock Book Almost a Hardcover

I posted this update about editing the film to our California Deathrock book Kickstarter pages and I wanted to share it here too. I eventually did find the needed art pencils. They were in a pencil drawer, along with an inexplicable neurological pinwheel.

Forrest and I are getting ready to start going through contact sheets today. Thanks to our awesome backers, we know we are definitely going to be able to do the book, so we want to get a head start on editing film.

It has been so long since I got to work with negatives and contact sheets that I am having trouble finding any of my grease art pencils to mark the contact sheets with. I’m still hopeful that a search will uncover my stash, but I might have to go get a couple from the camera store. Hopefully they still carry traditional tools.

We’re going to try both the library and a coffeehouse with big tables and see which is more comfortable to go through contact sheets in.

Thanks so so so much to everyone who has supported this project so far. If we hit $2,200, the book is definitely going to be hardcover and it seems promising that it will.

Los Angeles Noir (PICS)

These palm trees and city lights, under a menacing sky, are the view from my balcony in Hollywood right now. This shot only begins to show the roiling black clouds, like a powerful wizard is about to do something unusual to Los Angeles. Went hiking earlier today with Forrest Black and got totally soaked. The park was so empty and beautiful. There was one rugged soul out there with a camera on tripod trying to shoot the fog. And one woman in really nice boots, not shoes for walking in mud at all, much better suited for neon-lit and preferably not rain-soaked streets. My own personal, delightfully damp Los Angeles noir.
