Want to know our favorite part of Halloween? It's our Howl'oween Puppy Parade! It's too bad this can't happen every day, we really love seeing animals dressed up in costume. We think puppy Björk was our favorite this time, but they were all so cute that we can't be sure.
The Bones and Feathers Collective makes some gnarly jewelry out of recycled bullet castings. We just think they may be in the wrong profession—they make better gold teeth than most rappers have in their mouth.
"Prolific" is an incredibly overused word, but in the case of Rowland S. Howard it's perfectly appropriate. The man was an Australian musician, songwriter and poet. He was part of post-punk band The Birthday Party in the late '70s and early '80s and the influence of his music is still being felt. Watch this trailer to find out why. - Nadia
British artist Jessica Harrison makes bizarre art that includes everything from gruesome porcelain figures to tiny "flesh furniture." It's gross, it's freaky, and it's awesome! Apparently her senior dissertation at the Edinburgh College of Art was called "Cutting Edge or Dicing with Death: Death and Dissection in Contemporary British Art" and that is some seriously scary schoolwork. - Hazel
Studiolav has created Design is Dead cross pencils to represent the death of their use due to technology. We can't help but think about how perfect these would be for a vampire slayer with a homework problem who goes to high school on a Hellmouth.
Jason Tennant's wood sculptures are so detailed that they almost look real. We wonder how many people they've spooked in the dark?
Before you hit up your Halloween parties this Saturday, spend your early hours at Phantasmagoria at Space 15 Twenty (1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd)! Some of LA's top designers and illustrators will be creating original designs on pumpkins that will be put up for auction. Plus, going to an event for a good cause totally evens out all the bad things you'll do later that night.
There is totally a reason why Actual Pain remains everyone's favorite label, just take one look at their new video for Faul 11. X - Jen
It's moustache season! Movember officially starts on Tuesday and we are so excited. Movember is a month long awareness campaign for cancers that affect men around the world. Funds raised in the U.S. will go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and make a cure a reality.
Class Actress, one of this week's Music Monday artists, has a new video for the song "Weekend." While you're watching, check out the "A Touch of Class" feature at i-D Magazine about lead singer Elizabeth Harper, and get ready to play this song for the next two days.
You know you're a pop culture icon when someone makes an ice cream popsicle out of your face. Hey Stoyn, make one of us! We want to be mint chocolate chip.
American footwear and menswear designer extraordinaire, Mark McNairy, is stepping into the world of womenswear next season, with some staples that he's known for in his New Amsterdam collection: red brick soles, fitted caps, eccentric prints, and of course, cargo pants. See the rest of the lookbook here. -Bob
Our Store On Tour has come to an end and we are incredibly sad that it's over. It was an amazing experience and we want to thank everyone who made the tour possible: Dockers, Dry Soda, Tortoise & Blonde, the employees, and of course, all of you! It's so hard to say goodbye, it feels like we're graduating from high school all over again. Hmm...I wonder where we will end up going for college?
Tomorrow night, October 28th, American Mortals (729 Walnut St.) is throwing a party to celebrate Kevin Lyons' installation at the shop! Knowing him, the room will be filled with awesome drawings of creatures of all shapes and sizes. With free food, drinks, and music by Julian from Pink Skull, we are getting so excited that we might camp out front overnight.
