this whiskey priest he burned the church to keep his girls alive



Like if you found out your high school was actually a cult. Eerie pastels, scrunchy socks, stuffy button-downs, and iconography of all kinds. Satan's School, Organized Robots, The Virgin Suicides, Grace Miceli, Allison Harvard, Craig McDean for Vogue Italia, Google street view, and Bombay by El Guincho.

Submissions to the magazine end at midnight Central time tomorrow, Friday the 19th! Please reread the requirements before submitting, and be sure to send it to magazinesubmissionsarefun@gmail.com instead of my blog email because any sent there will be deleted, as will any emails sent after midnight tomorrow (I've said it before and I'll say it again -- we wanna get moving!) Thank you to everyone who has submitted so far and I can't wait to start taking a look over the weekend.

Hey, check the pictures... there are errors.

Rose said...

Yeah, the vast majority of the post is "currently unavailable" :( But, uhm, it sounds super cool and spooky...

Tavi said...

Oops! Thanks for letting me know. Fixed it :)

Kaiami said...

I recognized the photos for Vogue Italia because I bought that issue (actually to be precise, my mom bought it because I told her I needed it for school). My first European magazine, and also my most expensive. All of my other foreign magazines are Asian ones, which are pretty cool too (street snaps are pretty darn amazing).

I like that last picture, by the way. It looks uncomfortable.

this is a self portrait by alison harvard

michelle said...

i remember alison. she was a semi myspace celebrity and ended up on america's next top model. weird spooky girl, makes sense to include her in this sequence.

WendyB said...

That last braid picture is terrifying!

Renee said...

Oh I remember that ed in Vogue Italia with the robots... I sort of stared at it for minutes before saving it on my computer.
The first 'unknown' is indeed by Allison Harvard, who I believe was an America's Next Top Model contestant but had these way-too-cool-for-Tyra pre-show shots...

>^.^<

Kathryn said...

Alexis said...

badass idea and post. love the photos that you picked to correlate the theme.

bourrier_aude said...

Hey! The last picture is taken from the clip of the song "Bombay" from el Guincho. Awesome video, awesome song.

The director of this video is Nicolas Mendez.

Wait, midnight as in tonight midnight or midnight as in Saturday "morning" midnight?

Digging these pastely vibes for fall. Who says pastels are reserved for spring? (Does anyone even actually say that?)

Lovely photos!

I read one of your comments on a blog called www.texerrors.com.
We sat and laughed for hours on the website. It shows txt mess sent to wrong person.
Example: The boss.
Sms: Would you take a bath with me tonight? Kisses on your neck

Mina Jade said...

Tavi,
You will laugh, I did send my application - how odd of me, there will be thousands of applicants which reduces my chances next to zero (usually I am not lucky at castings), besides, I cannot compete with native speakers... however, I gave it a try! I sent my messages to the said email address - I hope there are no automatic replies, because I have not got any thus far.

I was OBSESSED with Allison Harvard hen I was 16.

rossovelvet said...

Great subject!
I wouldn't advertise my own post if it wouldn't be EXACTLY on your theme here (eerie pastels crossovering horror movies), you might be interested in my HORROR PASTEL PROJECT!

http://rossovelvet.wordpress.com/2010/11/15/the-horror-pastel-project/#comments

Incredible job on your blog as usual anyway, and I will also try my best to send a submission for the magazine later today ;)

Darn, you holiday! I'm now behind on everything! :-( I have some catching up to do! But as I've said in some tweets that I just sent you, Tavi, I would love to help with the magazine in any way that I can :-)

Beni Gallinad Buisán said...

cancercowboy said...

lol, Creepy-Chan. she always reminds me a bit of the girl on the cover of the first Eels album.
the overall mood here again feels somewhat Lynch-esque. nice sampling.

julia aka garconniere said...

that photo of kirsten dunst makes me want to re-watch/re-read the virgin suicides.

i already submitted to the lovely as of yet unnamed magazine, but now i'm all antsy... do you have any idea when you'll be able to give a response time? a week? two weeks? a month?

khdz said...

I like how all of your influence lately seem to belong to a general category of the creepy, uncanny, horrifying, etc.
it just makes a highly-fashiony outfit more emphasized in a context that renders it more or less ridiculous. because who cares about your shoes when you are chased by a crazy person with a knife?

Hoio!
last picture is a frame taken from the El Guincho's Bombay music video. It is all imagery inspired by the blogosphere, very interesting and more beautiful

Morse said...

I don't know how I feel about any of this creepy/satanic/virginal/demented pastel/technicolor/the sex appeal of blondes getting killed phase. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely respect whenever someone is intelligent enough to pull similar images from dissimilar sources based on a common thread as you've done here, it's just that when I look at these pictures I think of going to my grandma's house on sunday afternoons. She has cats and doesn't open the windows so it's really stuffy and cat-smelling and when the afternoon sun shines in through the living room window onto all the dusty 70s furniture it makes me feel empty, cracked, and dry inside. What perplexes and amazes me is that you obviously REALLY like this general idea. Which is cool because it illustrates how differently people view things but is disconcerting because I could never imagine someone actually gravitating towards this theme.

great picture selection, nice inspiration

You make the best collages, really. I wish you could come and redecorate my house for me. I would probably be scared all the time, but at least it would be fabulous...

Rebekah Miles said...

the last pic was also done by a euro artist collective called janfamily. google them and you will see their version..

Masha said...

great Japanese blog! lovely!

and I like Kirsten Dunst's picture from Virgine Suicide!!

Rebekah Miles said...

the intertwined braids was also done well by the european artist collective, janfamily. other things also, like "how to stop time" where they taped the autumn leaves back on the tree:)

fashionslap said...

Hmm I wonder how many entries you got. I'm guessing a lot. This should be good I can't wait to see what comes out of you guys.

zoomslow said...

Wow! That's cutting it fine/doing it by the seat of my pants! Just sent my 2 part submission in :-)) I'm guessing the cut off time is Chicago time. Which from what I can work out is Friday Nov. 19 around 11:30pm!

P said...

Interesting pictures, especially the Google street view! Wow

Nina said...

Crap... I think I sent mine in too late.. is the cut-off time EXACTLY midnight..? =.=

Chelsea Lane said...

eep this is genius <3 I actually think that last picture is really adorable. and allison is a creeper for sure.

Sara said...

I think the last picture of the girls with the one braid is from a video called Bombay by el Guincho, you can check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CreEuaS8QY

hahaaha love this post, high school was defiantly run by some evil mastermind since they were capable of convincing are parents to keep sending us back just to be repeatedly tortured...
I also hated my dining room table, because whenever we all sat down by it your dad would ask
"how was school today"....
EVERYDAY
as if he had to send a progress report to whoever was organizing this crime against youth....
I love your blog and I just read about your plans on creating a new generation Sassy.
I really would love to be a part of it by submitting articles such as the one above...
and although im 20 years of age and managed to grasp that last descent piece of teen rebellion, I hope to save my 16 year old little sister though from the Disney sex symbol starlets and the anti social...social networks such as facebook.....I mean serioully 489 friends?! And what uve met 20 of them?
So if you’d give me a shot at this...
My emails: studscoollady@hotmail.com
Thank you/

hap said...

ooohhh, i like this very much. it also makes me think of "picnic at hanging rock" it's a brilliant, creepy movie if you haven't seen it, and incidentally, it was on TCM (or one of the old movie channels) last night. yes, this post is lovely.

Martyna said...

I really like photos that you share.. as always, especially the last photo. It's great idea to do something like that ;).

i think it a really great video!

Aliza said...

when will the magazine staff be decided on? :)
i love the braid picture, its wonderfully macabre

Thea Canlas said...

I'm surprised you didn't have Suspiria in the list. Late '70's Italian B-movie about a boarding school with a coven of secret witches that's *gasp* killing people randomly. Deliciously bad. You'd really enjoy it. Unless you already have.

Awh, of course I missed these posts. No matter how much college applications want to pretend to be important, I will never forgive them for diverting my attention from the blogosphere.

All this high school creepy reminds me of some less pastel versions: a ridiculous Japanese horror film called Suicide Club (http://www.best-horror-movies.com/image-files/suicide-club-subway-school-children.jpg) and this movie, The Tracey Fragments (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-TbdIKhvn4).
