Swing and a miss

Those two things, I mentioned below, the haircut and the regular updates? Yeah, neither happened. Third time's the charm, right?

I'm really terrible at this blog thing.

...and I'm sorry. But, maybe you'll be glad to know that my two New Year's resolutions are to get a haircut, and to post here more often. Or, maybe you want to stab me in the eye with a fork instead. Your call.

Boo-Review for week of 9/20-9/26: Iron Fist "Zombie Stomper" Heels

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

I have to start by saying that Iron Fist makes some of my favorite clothes ever. I only own a few pieces from their collections, but if I had unlimited funds at my disposal, you'd better believe I'd have everything. The Zombie Stompers are the second pair of Iron Fist Shoes that I've bought - I'm not normally a big high-heel person (being 5'8" with pretty long legs, I need extra height like I need a hole in the head) but I have to say, I love the quality and comfort level of Iron Fist pumps. I sustained a foot injury when I was in the Air Force, and it's difficult for me to wear anything other than my flip-flops or Vans for a period longer than half an hour without experiencing some brutal foot pain, let alone peep-toe pumps. But these are supercomfortable - I think they have a suede, or suede-like lining. And they are awesomely tall - bigger than your average heel, but not tall enough to make you look like a stripper. With a heel at 5" with a 1" platform, I'd probably tower over everyone except Tyler Mane (okay, that may be an exaggeration, but I'm still pretty damn tall.) I had no problem walking in them on tile or carpet, and was even able to recover after tripping over a cat (and remain standing. Bonus!)

I don't know how I got this far without saying this, but... have you seen these?! They've got freakin' zombies on them! Malevolent green zombies! Well, the color is at least - not sure about the zombies. That's what I call that shade of green, "malevolent green." I can't say for sure whether the zombies are malevolent. But they are smiling (though it may be more of a rictus grin.)

So you want to sink your teeth into a pair? Better move fast - stores like Too Fast and Retro Rebels have already sold out twice. And you could order them from a UK site, like attitudeclothing.co.uk and others (none of which have the shoes in stock)- but because of the exchange rate, be prepared to pay up to $110... BEFORE shipping. But don't fret - you can now get these at Hot Topic and Journey's for $32.99 and $39.99 (respectively.)

All in all, a great pair of shoes. Only negative thing I have to say is they should have made them more widely available.

LondonsDungeon is on Twitter!

Admittedly, I have no idea how to use Twitter yet, but I thought it'd be good to get one. When I learn how to use it, I'll be sure to post an update letting you guys know.

The Debut of the Boo-Review

I'm going to start doing something weekly that I'd like to call the "Boo-Review." It'll be something (or someone) spooky that I want to share with you all. It can be anything - CDs, movies, bands, food, art, collectibles, clothes, whatever- just as long as it has creepy attributes and if it's something I think that you'll enjoy.

With that being said, I'm off to write a draft for my first Boo-Review.

What has happened in the last year...

Wow! It's been a year -yes, a year- since I've had an internet connection. Living in the country truly does suck. I'm definitely more of a suburb girl. But now I'm happily settled into a New Yorkesque suburb outside Raleigh and able to get back to connecting with people about things I love- metal, zombies, and just sort of generally weird stuff. So this is what has, in no particular order, transpired in the last year or so:

-I have destroyed the engine of my car.
-I have seen Cradle of Filth, Satyricon, and Septic Flesh. And they were awesome. More on why Satyricon is my favorite black metal band later.
-I did NOT get married.
-I dressed up like a zombie for charity. Seriously.
-I have started making band jackets for fun. Well, not actually making the jackets, 'cause I have minimal sewing skills, but seriously pimping them out, with patches, buttons, chains, spikes, and awesomness.
-Spent a hell of a lot of time watching Michale Graves play.

More has happened, I'm sure, but that's all I can remember right now.

It's good to be back, and I promise this blog won't always suck. I'll get better at this. Really.

Changes are coming to the Dungeon!

I hope that by the one year anniversary of the Dungeon's launch, I will have relaunched the new Dungeon - a web-based home (still at blogspot!) for the horror-punk community, both N.C.-based and worldwide. I decided the Dungeon and I needed a purpose in life - and I want to share my spooky, creepy, undead band and merchandise interests with you... so here's to chains - I mean, change!
