Sue Wellman and the ghosts of Joliet, Illinois

There is a Native American burial ground located in this cemetery which was excavated at one time. There were more than 100 remains found, mostly women and children. I had […]

For the dearly departed Nik P. Vollweiler

Today I pay tribute to an important person in my life that was tragically taken from me and also those who loved and knew him. While stationed in Japan I met Nik. We had so many things in common but the love of music was our glue. I played him HOLE and 7 Year Bitch and the Deftones and My Ruin, and he simply bought me an AFI cd. He first bought me the AFI EP called All Hallows which […]

Holy Cross Cemetery: Detroit, MI

Taphophile Entry #1

In my short duration of cemetery explorations, I have come across a few amusing tombstones and statues. So far this one is my favorite. I found this statue as is. I did not do any photo imaging enhancements to its hand except for adding the sunray to the finger. Obvious a result of vandalism, which I do not condone, I did find this quite amusing.

Halloween Party Music

I searched and gathered some great Halloween themed tracks from the 1950’s and 60’s. Some obscure, some are not. They will make your toes tap, your hips sway, and your shoulders shimmy. Rest assured, there’s no Monster Mash type songs here. Happy listening Please note: I do not own the rights to any of these songs. This is strictly a fan based collection. Track listing: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – “Little Demon” (1956) 0-2:23 Round Robin – “I’m The Wolfman” (1965) […]

Type O Negative Black No. 1

Today could be Christmas and everyone around you could be singing songs of delight and happiness while opening brightly wrapped presents but then suddenly, your goth cousin breaks out their Type O Negative cassette and regardless of where you are at, you instantly shift into Halloween mode. There is no escaping the trance that Peter Steele’s voice puts you in.  There is just no escaping the sound of Type O Negative. This song reminds me of the many heavy metal […]

Art of Heather M Schilling

Michigan born illustrator Heather M Schilling is a talented scratchboard artist who draws with a knife…yes, a knife. The details and expressions she gives her characters are exquisite and memorable. This method takes patience, a great imagination and a keen eye for detail. It is clear that Heather has these attributes and it shows in her work. I reached out to Heather to learn more about her and the illustrations. What made you decide to draw with a knife? Any […]
