There’s a ghost island in Japan. It’s called Gunkanjima – have you heard of it? I read something about it on the weather site, and when I googled, I lucked into finding the blog I’m showing you which is brilliant and the photographs are tremendous.
Apparently there was ample coal to mine once upon a time, but when things changed and coal wasn’t so sought after, everyone abandoned the island in what seems like a day or two.
These images are spooky and beautiful. I advise you to check out the entire site!

Seriously, is he not the cutest half beagle have shi tzu you have ever seen?
As you can see, I adore My Modern Metropolis. It’s pure inspiration.
This post is indeed haunting and I’m so happy that photos have been taken and shared so that we can feel this all around the world.

I know it’s not cool to like Banksy, but I do. Sue me if you want. I don’t care. I’m too old to be cool anyhow!
Check out the art animated in GIF – I love it even more!

Mike – you are one talented dude!!!
I find these tattoos so breathtaking that I’d love to go to Russia (once they’ve released musicians from jail and stop the cruelty toward gays and lesbians) and actually get one done! What do you think??

I love that she still does these stick and poke tattoos on people, although most of her tribe is now unmarked. I can’t imagine how much this must hurt, but it’s so intriguing!

I was so lucky to find this wonderful piece today after finding one about Father’s Day, which I will post separately. This spoke to my heart in terms of my relationship with my mother, and also my relationship with Kiddo. Lovely!

It’s a festival. On the Queen Mary. In California.
Great tattoo artists. Amazing car show. But, but, but….BAD BRAINS!!! DEAD KENNEDYS!!! THE STRANGLERS!!!! THE FLESHTONES!!!!
And Oh My God – IGGY AND THE STOOGES!!! It’s like a ancient pseudo punk’s DREAM. Of course, I can’t go to Cali. I have my daughter’s field day tomorrow and other, you know, mom stuff to do. But part of my heart will be on that ship, drinking tequila, getting inked and seeing the bands that helped me vent most of that crankiness out in my actual teen years!!!
