I had to set up my tripod and leave the camera rolling to get this.
The little shit does it for attention so every time I look at him he stops for a while.

Props for hella appropriate music!

when in the wooded place i be
then in the sacred grove is he
the god of hunters, king of creatures all
his horned head i see

he rules life and death
and guards the otherworld
from where all forces flow
and all events doth know

Stay beside me now, Lord of the Antlers…

Hærfest Supper, by Ms. Graveyard Dirt (I & II)

One of the ways we celebrate the queendom’s fruitfulness during Harvest is through a series of special meals made almost entirely from homegrown, locally foraged and/or locally grown food.

* pickled plums; homemade using homegrown plums, woody spices and organic vinegar

* pickled mushrooms; homemade using locally foraged chanterelles, homegrown herbs and organic vinegar

* borsht bites; made with local vegetables, homegrown herbs, local eggs, gluten-free breadcrumbs and organic feta cheese

* (roadkill) venison stew; made with local vegetables, homegrown herbs, locally foraged wild mushrooms, locally produced elderberry wine, smoked spices and venison I personally butchered (#21)

* kabanosy-braised sweetheart cabbage; made with local vegetables, homegrown herbs, smokey-flavored Ukrainian sausages (leftover from Easter) and a ridiculous amount of homegrown garlic

* wild mushroom dumplings; made with locally foraged boletes, home-rendered duck fat, local eggs, homegrown herbs, locally grown/produced rapeseed oil and gluten-free breadcrumbs

* ritual bread; made with local spring water, locally grown/produced wheat flour and home-rendered duck fat

* carrot cake; made with local carrots, freshly ground spices, preserved stem ginger, locally grown/produced rapeseed oil, local eggs and organic pecans

* red currant & raspberry wine; produced by a local winery using local fruit

* Additional foodie smut can be found in The Black Arts

in the name of pan

With hoofs of steel I race on rocks, on my way to equinox…

Bye, bye, beetle friends! I brought my beetles to one of bonecleaning's friends in Portland today. Take good care of these little guys, alright?

Dermestid Beetle Care

Setup:

  • Thick glass or heavy-duty acrylic container. The beetles are capable of chewing through softer plastics, and will eat any organic material they come across, so you don’t want them at large in your house. Smooth walls (I removed the silicone from the upper 4” of the tank corners) ensure that beetles can’t crawl out
  • Undertank reptile heating pad. You should keep the tank above 65F degrees, but below 80F, as they will try to disperse at high temperatures. Heating pads are preferable to a heat lamp, as they produces a constant, low warmth. Dermestid beetles do not like bright lights, and will hide on the undersides of specimens if it is too light for them, resulting in bad cleaning jobs.
  • "Substrate" - a lot of beetle keepers will put in newspaper or styrofoam for the beetles to burrow in. This is actually potentially harmful for them. The beetles will chew through styrofoam, and get their digestive tract clogged with the plastic, potentially killing them. Paper, especially in the United States, can contain balsam fir, which mimics insect hormones. When I was starting out, I shredded some newspaper into the beetle tank, and I ended up with HUGE larvae going through supernumerary instars. This can prevent your beetles from reaching adulthood and can potentially kill your colony. I prefer to play it safe and let them create their own substrate. They happily lay eggs in and pupate in their old exoskeletons and frass.
  • Custom mesh lid. Standard aquarium lids will allow beetles to escape! I made this lid to fit tightly against the footing.
  • Shroud. Keeps tank dark to encourage feeding. Reduces smell also!

Humidity:

  • These beetles in particular are from central Oregon and can withstand extended draught. They do not do well with excessive moisture, however. It is good to keep the specimen somewhat moist, but the rest of their bedding should be dry! If you see humidity on the inside of the tank, it is too wet! A good rule of thumb is to mist lightly every 2-4 days.
  • Try to keep the “food” area localized to one part of the tank. This way, the beetles can move away from the wet area; they will regulate themselves if you let them

Feeding:

  • Beetles can live off of cheap dog food while you don’t have specimens to feed them. Dog foods that are terrible for dogs work fine for these little omnivores, as their digestive system is set up to work with pretty much any organic material. Feed about 1/2c at a time, and mist it during misting time. Beetles will eat dry food, but they will eat better if it’s slightly moist
  • Beetles will not lay eggs on dog food, however, so if you have a long dry spell between specimens, feed them a chunk of liver or raw meat. It takes 3 days for eggs to hatch, so the meat must last at least that long. Beetles live for 50 days, and so must be fed meat at least once per month to ensure that you have a next generation
  • I prefer to feed the beetles on cut-up pieces of thin cardboard (seen in the images). This prevents moisture from sinking in to the substrate, keeps tiny bones together, and makes it really easy to remove finished specimens
  • Lastly, NEVER feed a clean colony fresh roadkill. Freeze every dead animal you feed them for at least 24 hours to kill fly, mite, and ham beetle eggs! Allow to fully thaw before feeding. Use a towel to remove extra moisture before putting it in the tank to reduce odor.

they are happy and healthy! and recently ate most of a tiny mouse!

xoxo

The Iron Maiden by Adrienne Rozzi // POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP
Limited Edition of 20.
A maiden stands expressionless waiting to wrap her victim in her lethal embrace. Her stern demeanor and hollow gaze offer no remorse for those who find themselves her unlucky sufferer. When put inside the maiden’s empty body a victim is pierced by hundreds of iron spikes. Each one skewers only deep enough to inflict pain but never enough to kill. Death is prolonged as the unfortunate sufferer can not move but dies a truly torturous slow death from loss of blood and excruciating pain. Poppies pour forth from the empty chasm of her barbed interior as an ominous symbol of blood and death. The Iron Maiden is a historical torture device often made of wood and iron. It is a common misconception that this weapon dates back to the Middle Ages but in actuality was invented around 1800 as a crude object intended for commercial exhibition.  The Iron Maiden is original artwork, hand drawn and printed by artist Adrienne Rozzi.

i know that the clubs are weapons of war

but that’s not the shape of my heart
