What do you like besides Rik Mayall & The Young Ones? by Amelia G on Blue Blood

What do you like besides Rik Mayall & The Young Ones?

I loved The Young Ones. I actually thought they were an MTV creation and the existence of that show was one of the many reasons MTV was awesome. I rarely saw my people represented in film and, despite its over-the-top comedy, The Young Ones reflected my real life experience far more than most…( Read more )

SLC Punk Sequel Indie Go Go by Amelia G on Blue Blood

SLC Punk Sequel Indie Go Go

Okay, this could easily be one more thing destroying pop culture touchstones of my childhood. Like that Star Wars sequel with Jar Jar Binks and cutesy young Darth Vader or whoever etc. (I’d like to point out that I somewhat presciently said at the time that it looked like George Lucas was…( Read more )

Happy (Naked Tattooed Elf Scarlet Starr) Holidays from Blue Blood’s BarelyEvil (SFW PICS)

Happy holidays, everyone! I’m eating cookies and drinking cocoa (well, mocha, but that’s how I like it) and I hope you all are too.

Forrest Black and I photographed cute elfin Scarlet Starr chewing on a candy cane in a Bah Humbug Santa hat, with some candy cane striped stockings, and a good dose of red and green and silver tinsel Christmas decorations. I just love holiday sets. These two images are safe for work (not that you are probably working today, but you know what I mean) but none of the links I’m about to give you are. There are some very nice naughtier free pics of Xmas Scarlet Starr in this free BarelyEvil gallery. The whole series appears in the Blue Blood VIP and on Barely Evil :-)

Punk Mohawk Teen Tara Toxic (PICS)

Forrest Black and I just photographed the amazing Tara Toxic for the first time. With her individual punk style and DIY clothes and her mohawk and general gorgeousness, we will definitely be shooting her again. Her first appearance in the Blue Blood VIP and Barely Evil is a somewhat Tarantino-inspired punk mohawk schoolgirl crossbow series. Cool sculptural paintings in the background are courtesy of the talented Kevin Flint. Whole series in the VIP as always.

Chachie and Ducky Von Ghoulie Deathrock Horror Punk (PICS)

Forrest Black and I first met Ducky Von Ghoulie from the Fuzzbats and his lovely bride Chachie at the old school deathrock club Release the Bats in California. The setting for this shoot is Ducky and Chachie’s real life living room. Ducky says he collects all the horror films and models and posters and other memorabilia in his impressive collection because it turns him on. What better reason! This is some of my favorite sort of work to shoot and Forrest Black and I really enjoyed creating art with Ducky and Chachie. Whole series in the Blue Blood VIP as always.

RIP Alexander McQueen

RIP Alexander McQueen

by Amelia G : February 12th, 2010

alexander mcqueen lady gaga bad romanceAlexander McQueen was such an extremely talented and out-of-the-box designer that even punks who hate the whole concept of fashion could appreciate his work. In keeping with this, Alexander McQueen said that he once used a pen to scrawl the word CUNT into the lining of a coat he worked on for Prince Charles. David Bowie’s coat on the cover of the Earthling CD was by Alexander McQueen. Hopefully, there were no bonus notes in David Bowie’s clothing lining.

As vampires have become more mainstream-acceptable, pockets of the gothic subculture have been inclined to reject the whole vampire thing. Okay, I wrote my thesis on vampire stuff, so maybe this is no surprise, but the whole immortality aspect always got a thumbs-up from me. My family is packed with humans who tend to be both long-lived and kinda dicks about funerals. The way that Alexander McQueen pushed the envelope in life will give him a certain kind of immortality.

I have never met Alexander McQueen, but my own life had a lil too many deaths in it this past year. In case Blue Blood is the only site you’ve looked at in the past day, Alexander McQueen was supposed to attend his mother’s funeral today, but he was reportedly found hanged . . .

Alt- vs. Fetish

Kumi posted a blog entry where she talks about not viewing fetish and alt-modeling as related at all. I both agree and don’t. I guess in theory, I disagree, but, in practice, what she observes is often dead-on how this currently goes in the real world. I wanted to share a quick thought of mine on the topic and also direct folks to what she wrote: Alt- vs. Fetish

I discussed this with Michelle Olley years ago, when she was at Skin Two, and we were both trying to promote having models with unusual haircuts and tattoos and dramatic makeup and such in fetish areas. And meeting with resistance. Looking punk or goth-industrial or whatever and showing up to the BDSM party was not always the way to elicit the friendliest welcome in those days. The handcuffs on my leather jacket at the time were fully functional and one of the reasons I founded Blue Blood was precisely to celebrate an aesthetic which resonated with me sexually. 17 years later, I am less impressed by a daring hairstyle than I once was, partly because it takes less courage to rock one in a post-internet world, but I’m still enough of a fetishist there that I will look at two people with the same basic level of appeal and think the one with the mohawk is way hotter.

Something which troubles me deeply is that a lot of people have reinterpreted alt to be where girls (not women) who do not make the grade can put on wigs and LARP like they are modeling. These are generally girls who do not want to have to develop their minds or even their cooking skills, but they do not want to hit the gym either. So they call themselves altmodels and you are supposed to like them for their looks alone, without requiring them to look good.

Certain corporate players in the marketplace have aggressively attempted to de-sexualize alt. But a few more loathsome humans in the overall society doesn’t make liking music and subculture-influenced looks not a fetish.
