Caryn Drexl born 1980, is a self-taught conceptual and portrait photographer based in north/central Florida, USA. She has a unique approach to taking female portraits. Her style is like the photographic version of Edgar Allan Poe, with its imaginative details and vague sense of discomfort. She openly admits that “Everything I know I learned through trial and error or the internet.” Although she loves the look of film, and does own some vintage cameras, for practicality she prefers working with digital images. And no big cameras either, “I have girly little hands and a dislike for big heavy cameras that’ll break my wrist or my neck, so the littler ones suit me well.”
You can find more of Caryn’s mysteries in her Etsy shop, CarynDrexl.
These still bodies, so certain they were more than the sum of their urges.

A while back, Sara made goulash from a recipe published in Leonard Wolf’s THE ANNOTATED DRACULA. She never got around to writing a blog post about it, so let me summarize: It was good.
To elaborate, the goulash was served over spätzle, with a teaspoon of eros pista to give it a kick. Eros pista (pronounced “ear-osh pish-ta”) is a spicy paprika sauce that makes everything better.
Leonard Wolf might not have the most reliable commentary, but I’ll be damned if I don’t love the man for starting the trend of putting recipes in annotated Draculas.
Has God promised you things?
La passion de Jeanne d’Arc, Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1928
I’ve never played Shadow of The Colussus before but I’ve been watching the grumps take it on and I have to say, I’m really beginning to turn into a huge fan of it. It’s definitely on my to-buy list.
Also, I would love to have a plushie for each of the Colossi.
