    Ladies, what are your 2017 resolutions?

    Hello Ladies, For many, 2016 has been a crap year. I am among those who for many, many reason are glad to see it go. Though, I don't normally subscribe to arbitrary starting dates to change habits, it seems fitting this coming year to really put forth effort in at least some way towards...

    Penny Dreadful- *spoilers* (duh)

    This show deserves it own thread. This show is a lot of what I have wanted for a long time, a return to the classic source materials of the horror legends we all know and love. A little history: A Penny Dreadful was actually a pulp horror magazine (that went under many names) that published...

    Have television shows finally surpassed movies?

    I used to love going to the theater and watching a film. It was an event, or at the very least, a treat for myself. Now, I'm bogged down by the glimpse of cellphones in my eyes as some knob-head takes a photo of the screen, people talking and $15+ ticket prices. All of that before I've even...

    Maker's Mark lowering proof to meet demand

    Okay, I KNOW Maker's isn't the best bourbon, it's barely mediocre, but its nostalgic. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2013-02-11/news/chi-makers-mark-water-20130211_1_maker-s-mark-jim-beam-bourbon-drinkers What say you, wise old Lounge? I personally think the nostalgia of this seemingly...

    'Judgements' by rosea posey

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/roseaposey/7173294256/in/photostream/ I've seen this image for months making its wave over again on the tubal interwebs and I was curious how you ladies felt about it and the perceptions of skirt length. I think there is a lot of perceived truth to it, because...

    Humility is a sign of beauty.

    I got to vent here, ladies. I'm getting tired of people who just have to rattle off every instance of what they do/can do/ have done in order to feel included in a topic they know nothing about. You know the type: you mention an interest and they have to immediately counter with, "My sister...

    American Roots Music

    I guess it's more of a sound or even a movement rather than an actual genera because its such a diverse mix of blues, gospel, country, bluegrass, jazz and folk from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s. It's becoming a cornerstone of my listening preference, and I'm seeking out vintage and modern...

    Custom Blended Makeup

    Has anyone had personalized makeup blended for them? Im thinking of having a lipstick made in the future. Im sick of the trial and error I get with colors. Neutrals look awful on me because their tones are more brown and plum. Corals and pinks make me looks silly, so Im stuck with reds, but...

    The 1950s: The gateway era.

    Often when I meet new vintage ladies around and about I ask them how they got started in all this crazy madness. For me it was thinking I wanted a circle skirt, a tight sweater and a scarf around my neck. I wanted that iconic 50s look. When I first started this I was all, "I cant stand those...
