A new Santa Muerte.
A new Santa Muerte.
I’m very excited to say that I’ll be part of The Dark Artisans’ Bazaar at this year’s Death Salon, which takes place at the Mütter Museum! I’ll have a table with a lot of art and some new surprises. The Death Salon will take place on October 5 & 6, 2015.
The Mütter is located at:
19 S 22nd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
As of this writing, tickets are still available.
It was a big trip – the first time I’ve tried having a table somewhere. The introvert in me still enjoyed every moment.
At last, I had Caitlin Doughty write a haiku for me in my copy of Smoke Gets in your Eyes…
There were murder ballads at night. And lots of DEATH BANGS. And, speaking of which, I FINALLY got to have a real life, in person meeting with my pal and fellow Order member Sarah Troop (Nourishing Death and Death and the Maiden, etc.).
The museum itself is fascinating, as is the history of the founder. I had a private tour of the bone room and wet specimen room, and while it’s not a huge place, I want to go back and study the exhibits. There is a great Vesalius exhibit, the wall of 139 skulls and the Soap Lady. A huge amount to read and study.
I love the talks, the people and the Museum. I am very grateful I had the chance to be a part of this.
I was driving somewhere, and saw this on the side of the road. I was compelled to stop the car and take photos. Here are a few. I hate to see animals suffer, there is a strange beauty here.
Happy Halloween, pals.
This is Trident, a Betta. He made many bubbles during our brief time together, and was inquisitive.
In other news, I think I’ve found the perfect item for the company holiday gift exchange.
Here he is, before the resin is added:
And he here is a few days after the resin has set:
Rest well, Trident.

My personal mortician and friend Caitlin Doughty interviewed me for the Order of the Good Death. As I think about it, this would bring the grand total of real interviews I’ve had up to one.
Thank you Caitlin for the great questions.
