Spotlight: Sister Madly
As I travel around the wild world of the internet, interacting with fellow horror enthusiasts and promoting my work, I meet all kinds of quirky people. My beautiful Harley Durant and I were just commenting today on how interesting horror fans are. Here we are, lovers of the dark… the macabre… the gory… but some of the most kindhearted and whimsical people on the face of this forsaken planet. Many of us are vegetarian or vegan (I am a pescatarian myself), are active animal lovers, support human rights, and we are always quick to laugh… nothing like the homicidal maniacs some people think horror fans are. For today’s Artists in Horror Month spotlight, I would like to introduce you to one of the most whimsical people I have had the pleasure of encountering… Sister Madly of The Sixpence at Her Feet.
You won’t necessarily find tons of horror and gore on Sister Madly’s blog (unless Sister Madly is making a sandwich). But what you will find is a blend of dark humor as she relates her exploits as she collects oddities (a recent one includes an antique opium pipe), her adventures (said opium pipe gets super glued to her hand), and her recipes (Sister Madly likes to cook). In short, a visit to her site will leave you with a smile on your face.
And her usage of words is an absolute delight. Reading one of her posts is like reading something akin to Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman’s lovechild. She manages to take some of the most mundane things in the world (making a sandwich, for instance) into something quite amusing.Do yourselves a favor kiddies. Head over to The Sixpence at Her Feet and give it a read. You will find yourself hitting the follow button in no time and being happy you did every time Sister Madly makes a new blog post.
