Back in a July post, I mentioned my trove of burlesque postcards waiting to be released on a good ‘n’ trashy day. Day 666 of this Halloween postcard marathon seemed to be just the ticket. As a traditional feminist, corsets and spike heels are not my cup of tea, but kitsch and vintage are. And I guess stemming from their devotion to illusion and styles of the past, burlesque show postcards tend to be some of the best designed advertisement postcards around. So here they are now, finally released from Pandora’s box, along with other seductive specimens.
Don’t forget, reading is sexy. Henry Rollins says so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFds_Db4OQc
John Waters agrees, “We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.”
See you back here tomorrow for an early celebration of Dia de los Muertos!
