Sexy Summer Man Fragrance



Sexy Summer Man fragrance for men has gotten amazing response by all the guys! It’s made from the leaves of Tomato plants and smells like a wonderful citrusy dark green summer. Many claim that it has helped their love life as well!

Here’s what my band mate Skippy looks like wearing Sexy Summer Man, isn’t he dreamy? Get some for yourself and watch the ladies flock, or get some this summer for your man and smell the green sparks fly.

Check this out this magic love potion along with original illustrations, prints, dolls of all kinds, and much much more on my etsy site: DameDarcy.etsy.com

Wanted: Portland Based Assistant!

Hey! Learn how to Do It Yourself book & promote art/music shows, self publish, website and dolls while helping a spooky/kooky local artist.


I’m based in Portland Oregon, so if you are too, thats ideal, but near by is do-able too.
Basically someone who I can trust and familiar with Etsy (http://www.damedarcy.etsy.com), also, some mailing, light tech and crafting. Light tech meaning, scanning, some photoshop (not crazy just adjusting things) and general computer questions that arise.

Crafting meaning I put together dolls and self published books and sometimes need help. Some pay possible, but also can help with college credit and will definately give you any gifts and referrals you want/need. I am also a psychic advisor and can help you with that if you want. Home cookin’ and lots of love and thanks to you included.

If you have a friend who you think can do some of these things, like the tech but not the crafts or vice versa please tell them as well because these catigories can be split up among different people.

Thanks so much, and lots of love...

Love, Dame Darcy


I need someone who is familiar with recording equipment and sound to help me set up a recording studio in my basement. I am in a dark wave/sea shanty band called DEATH BY DOLL and we have acoustic instruments, I play banjo, we also use multi-layered trackings and synths, me and my bandmates have recently moved here from Manhattan/Los Angeles respectively and we need help for setting up a recording studio. If this works out I’ll let you use the studio as well! I’m on a tight budget and need to know the best ways to do: power supply, sound proofing, etc.

SKILLS: publishing, art, music, film making, animation, crafts, sewing, horticulture, magic, tarot reading, teaching, events planning, doll crafting, child and elderly care, palm reading, psychic consultation.
We also will have a community garden and can share produce!



Last year in NYC, I did a Cabaret at the Slipper Room called Naughty Nautical Night (NNN) We are beginning to coordinate NNN PDX @ the FEZ in downtown PDX as well as a series of daytime weekend tea parties. Definitely NNN and maybe the tea parties I could possibly pay, but it depends on self motivation and how many people show up at the events. The NNN involves; an MC, a DJ, Nautical themed dancing girls and costumes, musical comedy, variety acts, burlesque, circus...stage hands, PR (real and virtual promotions) etc.

Job Description: deciding on themes, setting up dates for shows (bookings), talent coordination ie calling cast and crew, PR, providing PR to crew and cast to help ie delegating promotion. Again, there can be $ in this for you, it depends how well you do this job. For tea parties, same as above, but way less hectic.


I have a 1902 craftsman house I live in, a door in the house won’t shut, I need it fixed so the door can latch. That is my practical request, also I need help building bookshelves. My whimsical request is this...I have a crawl space that I want to put musical equipment in, but I want it to double function as a doll house for my doll, Isabelle. If you can do the door, but not the doll house, that’s ok, but the door is a necessity and emergency right now.

Thank You!

Dame Darcy

Hey! The show at The Civilian Art Projects went smashingly well, Carol’s work was beautiful and I loved all the DC characters that showed up.We had a super fun party at her restaurant afterwards, and a lot of my pieces sold. I loved DC and I stared at my Obama inauguration metrocard for the longest time, because it gives me hope and made me so happy to visit a giant pentagram with the black magic of ages being cleansed by the new awesome way that is coming for us all. The beautiful intricate doll castles and roman colosseum, and all the erodite population particularly how the guys there dress like business vampires and are from everywhere. DC has it’s secrets, everyone can tell, but Portland has it’s faeiry secrets, hiding in little hollows and coves just on the other side of the mundane everyday world.

The fertile overabundance greenery taking over all other life forms and the constant rich smell of wet, dark, earth, it makes me feel like I’m left out of the greatest party ever and I really want to go. I will miss the fancy events in DC, here in Portland, and who will go to the faeiry inauguration with me?

The show is still up in DC if anyone nearby wants to check it out. I am honored to have been invited by Carol and Jayme , thanks ladies!

(from Wikipedia.com)
"In 1989, Darcy won a scholarship to the San Francisco Art Institute,
where she majored in film and animation, studying with, among others,
George Kuchar and Kathy Acker. During this time, Darcy began
self-publishing Meat Cake. While in San Francisco, Darcy formed her
first band, Caroliner Rainbow, and produced her first independent solo
music releases.

In 1992 Dame Darcy moved to New York City, where she worked as
a freelance illustrator and cartoonist. In 2001, she moved to Los

She has exhibited her fine art in both solo and group shows, in the
U.S., Austria, and Tokyo.

Dame Darcy is now bi-coastal, calling both New York and Los Angeles
home. (In fact, she has just moved to Portland. - ed.)

Darcy has provided illustrations for writers Alan Moore, Poppy Z.
Brite, Trina Robbins; and fashion designers Anna Sui, Jared Gold, CWC,
and Coi Girl Magic, among others.

She is also a musician and performer of unique and experimental
combinations of bluegrass music, Americana, classic Expressionism and
transgressive aesthetics. Her collaborations with Caroliner Rainbow,
Lisa Crystal Carver’s Suckdog, Rock Rock Chicken Pox and heavy metal
author Ian Christe in Grouse Mountain Skyride have inspired members of
the avant-garde such as Thurston Moore. Darcy sings, and plays banjo,
electric bass, and singing saw."

The Stolen Sweets formed in 2004 with the intention of reviving
the songs of 1930s sister act, The Boswell Sisters. Comprised of
vocalists Jen Bernard, Lara Michell and Erin Sutherland, guitarists
Pete Krebsand, David Langenes (both of whom sing) and double bass
player Keith Brush, The Sweets’ repertoire has expanded to include
material from the1920s -1940s. Their arrangements are still inspired
by the Boswells’ tight 3-part harmonies, frequent tempo changes and
"knowing shrugs and raised eyebrows," as noted by the Oregonian’s A&E.
Unlike the original Boswell arrangements that featured piano,
clarinet,and horns, the Sweets incorporate gypsy jazz
accompaniment,reminiscent of Django Reinhardt.
The Sweets stay busy playing club gigs, private events and
festivals all over the northwest and beyond. They strive to keep these
vintage tunes alive, transporting a wide array of listeners to the
early days of jazz.

The Underscore Orkestra is a Portland OR based band, playing a blend
of Balkan, Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Swing, with a repertoire consisting
ofboth original and traditional material from fast bulgars and
melodious waltzes to odd meters and swinging rhythms. Our
instrumentation includes violin, accordion, guitar, banjo, clarinet,
horns, flute,harmonica, bass, vocals and percussion. Each of the
members comes from various backgrounds and musical disciplines from as
far away as Russiaand as close as our own North West. The Underscore
Orkestra has been performing for the past 3 + years, touring all around
the western U.S.,Mexico and Guatemala and has been seen from intimate
coffee shop setting all the way to huge outdoor festivals.

Started in February 2000 as vehicle for music, performance and
neoteric ritual. by Maxwell Benedetti. A few rotating members over the
years. We strive to be music/art/ritual as life, we strive to put
spirit in thisprimal music we make and we hope that it may serve in
the helps of;connection, meditation, dance, exorcisms, ritual, healing, catharsis, catalyst
and enjoyment. We strive to experiment and explore many types of
instruments and equipment. We strive to give reverence to a pantheon of
different musical Gods who haunt the primitive world, the suburbs, the
ghettos and (and yet!) untouched forests. We strive to explore the
music of inner/outer space. We strive to use music to help access,
acknowledgeand identify hidden "parts" of the subconscious and giving
them voicesand expression, for these "parts" are our insane inner
children. We strive to be urban shamen, post apocalyptic witches...etc.
You get the idea?

*And More Portland Shenenigans*
OK, so I’m in Portland. I’m looking for a house in the North East or South East for I’ve been told these are the best places.
This is my ideal home:
2 bedroom stand alone house (no condo etc) $1000.-$1200. mth. including utilities. I’d like to have the option of renting out the other room
while getting the site ready. Furnished a bonus but not necessary. Washer/drier a plus but again not necessary.
Garage a plus but again not necessary.

So I’m going to review Portland like a record...
I think the people here are so shockingly nice because, like a kitty that has never been hit, they don’t know any other way.
Kurt Cobain is not dead. I saw him a billion times walking around everywhere and he is practically every guy at every party and cafe I’ve been to.
Everyone is snuggly and crafty and makes their own everything. This place is D.I.Y. capitol and I like that!
Living here is like living in a discount store because everything and I mean EVERYTHING is Half off! Especially compared to Manhattan!
This is definitely the place to bunker down during a recession.
Lots of awesome Witchy women and cute witchy guys! Like my new assistant Maxwell...simply magical!
Also, speaking of awesome witchy women and cute guys, thanks to Nina for modeling and using her witchy powers for the latest auction and to Matt Stanger my cute brother for modeling as well.
PDX I kiss Kiss Kiss you on your cute, chubby, snuggly, rosy, punk rock, cheeks!

What Has Been Revealed

*ART/Fashion Auction

*Current Events:
The Sloan Fine Art Show was super fun and amazing. Thank you to everyone that came and to Alix and Tiffanie, it you made my art dreams come true!

*Hand Book For Hot Witches

The truth is the blood and guts of ones soul that comes oozing out when one has been smashed alive by God like a bug.

I found my own Hand Book For Hot Witches two days ago. It’s called Confessions of a Pagan Nun, by Kate Horseley. I want to ask the publishers if I can make it into a graphic novel because it rocks so hard and would be a wonderful teaching tool for so many.

God gave it to me because I was in agonizing pain and I asked for my life to unfold every moment and reveal the path to peace.

I was walking in the cold wind crying. I saw a pile of books and in a moment drew my hand to the first one I picked. I practice bibliomancy, by asking the universe questions and flipping through a book to land on the word or phrase in the book to answer the question.

This is like bibliomancy but with a whole book that every word of every page answers every question I can think of. I have asked God for this before and I can practice Living every moment in the present because I learned how through Buddhism. When in this practice, I notice the gifts all around me and magnetize exactly what I need and request. I also keep my mind and options open to receive new gifts and lessons.

This book had been translated from a manuscript written first hand by Gwynneve, a witch in the dark ages around 450 AD.The time when Pagans were beginning to be slaughtered by Christians. Reading her writings is like having her sitting across from me as a friend, telling me everything as if we were having a conversation. I want to reach back in time to the 1500’s and give her a hug to tell her it’s ok. Her words made it to the future and I will do everything I can to put it into practice.

This manuscript was revealed to me because we are now in another dark age, where we can learn valuable lessons from her on how to go back to Paganism now that the patriarchy, and industrialization has run its course. The age of Pisces is coming to a close and the age of Aquarius is here, this is what the Myans are talking about when they refer to 2012 being the end of time.

My best friends in New York are Jewish and Tibetan; both are races that know gentricide and injustice. I know why I so deeply empathize and obsess on justice for these crimes against nature and family because I now so clearly know my race has been brutalized for centuries.

Although I am white, I am not whitey. In fact I am the cracker attacker! I am the race of the Fae, or the “Bean Sidhe” as the book told me.

I can feel the pain of every forest burning, of every animal that goes extinct or is tortured in a factory farm, every political prisoner, the fish choking in the ocean. I feel them because I AM them, they are my race.

When I wrote my graphic novel Gasoline it came from this, but now I know I have to create the utopian renaissance and rebirth out of the industrial dark ages we are now in. I wrote about it in a book, but it has to manifest here in life first in the weird virtual world of telecommunications and then in reality.

There is a place where particles of matter and waves are the same. There are no words for this place, but it is where a Druid can breathe onto a stone and it turns to dust. It is time to dwell and go to this place, to never forget where it is.

I have to go to Portland Oregon because of the strange combination of Technology and the spirits of trees and how they both can help me begin a new society.

I have lived in a city with a population no less than 8 million because of the dreams and promises that a metropolis has to offer. New Yorkers have to spend ninety percent of their incomes on apartments they still think are too small, and they have the lowest breakup rates in the country because there is no other place for the broken up with to move.

But I have now found that the limitations and dreams I accepted when I was younger have either been realized or have been revealed to be delusional. They have metamorphosised into a narrow and secret passage leading to an expanse of space and liberation I had not realized existed. I now prefer peaceful surrender to noble battle, for in peace is an eternal freedom one never has in war, though sometimes fighting is necessary for external freedom.

My disappointment is not bitter, because I once was with a companion who did not turn his back on truth.

In the book the Faeiry lady Gwynneve looses her witch mother to death by medieval worms. Her mother was unrepentant and howled at the moon, carefully picking herbs from the forest and had hair like a fine long black cloak over her tattered real cloak. Her soul mate Witch Husband was slaughtered by Christians.

Although I have lost my witch husband soul mate, I find solace in knowing it at least has not been to death.
On our wedding day he promised to weave me a crown from his raven black hair to wear over my yellow faeiry hair. He promised to raise our adopted daughters to be witches in paradise and never know the suffering of this patriarchy, and to care for me even if I loose my mind. He said I’d get even more beautiful when I am old.

He recognized me from Atlantis where we used to live, and showed me his Druid tricks, which he specialized in through education, ancient thought and technology. He promised to help me use all this to make the movie for my book Gasoline if all the other promises of others failed.

I mourn over the loss of these promises now gone and the hope that burned bright with them.

I am not crying because I am being negative, as I have been accused, nor am I crying because I am being weak. Being a robot devoid of Passion and able to turn off his emotions does not make a man stronger. It takes more strength to feel.

But I now know there are two reasons I have no home and have been a wanderer my entire life. I have to create my home, which I know how to do now, thanks to the brutal heartbreak and enlightenment that has befallen me upon the release of my magnum opus and the loss of my soul mate at once, and also because I am a Druid, who have to wander to learn and pass on their teachings.

A teaching and quote from Gwynneve for all the hot witches, from one Druid to another:
“And here I say that a woman can ally herself with men’s power as long as she has her youth to offer. But when a woman looses her youth, she will regret playing that game.
And she will wish she had instead learned the art of druid or warrior to make those less wise respect her capacity for affection."

The definition of chivalry is for men to serve and protect women. It is an ideal and I believe is not entirely dead. But when all else fails, women do not need to rely on men for protection. And by the way, the only reason women ever need protection is usually from other men.

I am facing the patriarchy again now without my witch husband, I am weary of the inane games it forces me to play, but I am thankful that though I no longer have my true love, I do have my friends and family so I am not alone.

Gasoline art exhibition of original
illustrations from graphic novel and Gasoline painting series by Dame Darcy
(Books will also be signed)
128 Rivington st.
NYC 10002

Also, here’s where illustrations from other works are available, as well as some new items:

Were switching things up though, so get it while it’s hot :)

Also, Portlandites...Is that what you guys are called?
I found my first assistant, (thank Goddess) but I seriously need to get in touch with some one who understands
what were doing here with the DD.com site.
Ok, to be specific...

ANIMATOR: I am currently designing a spot for the History channel about the great depression for under a minute.
It has a budget and I can offer you money. However you have to contact me for specifics.
Have to start in Portland in December and get the initial design finished by the end of December.
The deadline for this project is the end of Jan. 09.
Here’s the link for Golden Shoes, an animation that has the look and feel of what the client wants.

After working on this project we need to design logos and animated titles for the half and hour segments that I’m designing for the movies, music videos, etc. to put on Dame Darcy.com to podcast, stream, and download.
This can be paying once set up, ( you don’t have to set it up, we have people for that).
Also, we can have fun times making collaborative animations if you want :)

If you or a friend fit this description please contact me at: damedarcy@damedarcy.com
with ANIMATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE in the subject line.
When you contact me please include your number and any links to your reel etc.

Needed to document rock shows/events and to edit video blogs for Dame Darcy.com and 30 minute movies, music videos etc.
Final cut pro edits to be podcast, streamed, and downloaded off the site. You need to be able to make final edit into separate folders in the hard drive in ipod format.
480 X 320 H264 code 1.5 megabites per sec. with sound compressed header for internet streaming.
Which we will do to all the video blogs and 30 minute movies to upload to site.
Specifics to be revealed when you contact me, but basically we get a lot of hits on DD.com and through this and other methods we are turning them into money which you will be part of.
If you or a friend fit this description please contact me at damedarcy@damedarcy.com
with CINEMATOGRAPHER/EDITOR in the subject line. Please include your phone number and any links to your reel etc.

Love and cinemagic to you :)
Dame Darcy

So, the Portland events are still yet to be announced, but what I do know is that I’M MOVING TO PORTLAND OREGON!
I am moving to Portland because I keep hearing it’s witchy, environmental, liberal, cartoonist friendly, low overhead and higer standard of living, and my family lives there. I am really nervous and kind of scared because I never lived there before and I don’t really know what to expect.

This move was not really planned for, but due to circumstances beyond my control is is a necessary.
I will still be going to NY and LA on a regular basis to produce my Gasoline Feature Film that is currently in the works, because the book is out now. BTW, it’s half feral (D.I.Y) so if any one has any leads , ideas, or suggestions pertaining to film production please contact me here at damedarcy@damedarcy.com.

BTW, the original illustrations from Gasoline are available now... just contact the Sloan Fine Art Gallery listed below for negotiable prices. It’s very exciting!

Also, because of my move I am looking for an assistant in Portland OR.
I know I’m always looking for assistants, a dyslexic Dame can’t have to many, that’s what they say...

Here’s what were doing:
Some one with basic computer know how, I do a lot of scanning and some cataloging, also help with events promo,doll crafting, and an assortment of other things.
Just contact me at damedarcy@damedarcy.com with : PORTLAND ASSISTANT in the subject line. Thanks :)

Also, a new documentarian/ cinematographer for the Portland events, and editing/ compressing and uploading the video blog and various other movies, shows and events. I love to work with you and your creative input too :)
Contact me with : PORTLAND CINEMATOGRAPHER in the subject line

Open to helping with school credits and/ or job referrals and development/ addition to your reel/resume.
Contact me at damedarcy@damedarcy.com

Plans for the upcoming year include making www.damedarcy.com into a funhouse!
Were going to have the most amazing community center know to man and fairy kind!
Games, radio, downloadable movies, live chat and link yourself to the EZ Bake Coven to profile your own amazing art.
Doll Game and Gothic Lolita Scrap Book! And all the shows from Naughty Naughtical Nite this year!
Plus much more...

Thanks and much love
Dame Darcy

Dirty Czarinas (Correction)

Hey all,

Just a couple changes on the Dirty Czarina’s – we will not be offering them for negotiation. We will only be posting them on eBay (we could get in trouble if the auction is up and we are trying to do an outside deal. So we will put them up as a family for $200 on eBay and if they don’t sell as a family we can sell them individually.


Gasoline Book Release info! Czarina Dolls! Sarah Palin Abortion Fund!

Art/Fashion Auction

Hey all you Dolls and gents, check out the latest Dame Darcy original illustrations fancy fashion and fine art dolls on the auction block this week.<3
I am doing the Dirty Czarina’s collection. To buy them as a whole family for less than it costs to buy each seperately ( in the buy it now section) contact Tiffanie at Sloan Fine Art to negotiate----->www.tiffanie@sloanfineart.com. Otherwise you just have to bid like the others and get them as individuals.
I would say get them while they’re hot, but these dolls are hot $4-eva$ !!!!!!!
All one of a kind and hand crafted, hand painted faces, posable limbs hand sewn coutre dresses 5 in. tall to fit with all standard doll house furniture.

Dirty Czarina Queen Hyacinth Royal Ruler of the Throne of Dollerium esquire the I

Dirty Czarina Countessa Narcissa Sucessor to the Throne of Dollerium of Kiss-a-lot Bite Town II
(Countessa Narcissa)
"Cissa" (as they call her around the palace) loves to bite the Queen’s style. Though she does it like no other! Did they get a two for one stylist?
No, Cissa’s gown is much different, don’t get in too much of a snit, Queen. Her ravishing hair makes up for what she lacks in social graces.

Dirty Czarina Dutchess Drucilla Fae Maven Strega Bruha Ha Ha of Otherworld III
(Dutchess Drucilla)
Is she a foundling? Or is she really of the same royal blood as the Queen? This is a mystery that will never be revealed!
Are those faeiry markings on her face or is it earth from the forrest? Her Royal corsetry and silver silk may be a deceptive guise for the elvin magic within.

Dirty Czarina Princess Penelope Tea Cup Catastrophy Descendant of Dutchess Drucilla IV
(Princess Penelope)
Such a proper and mannered child! Perfect in every way. Drucilla’s lovley daughter. Part fairy but who is the mystery father? Another Fairy?

Through the destruction of contemporary society emerges a world of
extremes.Nihilism vs. socialism is the name of the game in a new time
wheremagic replaces technology.
From the rubble and chaos emerge few survivors.
Among them, the Armbusters, (a whimsical family of orphaned witches)
quickly establish a utopian community.They uphold their position of power
by holding elaborate rock opera voodoo rituals revolving around the maintenance
of their car, the only working automobile remaining after the great disaster.
To do this, they must venture outside their walls of protection in search of gasoline,
now more precious than gold.

Their harrowing odyssey through a ruined but aesthetically mesmerizing
landscape where nature has reclaimed everything, leads The Armbusters to
the many conflicts within themselves, and pits them against the
conniving nihilists that now lurkin the abandoned places of decaying
urban sprawl. The new dark age is upon them.

Their post-apocalyptic tale is one of hope, and through their trials,
they learn to adopt a new way of functioning and are forced to change in
order to survive the hazardous and barren wasteland they now inhabit.

Through their unique experience,they find many ways to accomplish the
same objective, and are exposed to all of the choices and alternatives
existing those they were previously blind to while caught up in a life
of comparative luxury.

Gasoline is a supremely artistic and entrancingly bizarre story
with contemporary relevance and an ecological message. It
provokes intellectual and creative questions, examines human
fallibility, and shows us how we can live today, this moment, in harmony
with the natural world. It is a perilous and visually stunning tale of
danger and suspense, of heartbreak and redemption, of versatility,
compassion,strength, and above all, the perseverance of magic and love.

Love Letter/Current Affairs

I love Doug Stanhope! Long Live the Sarah J Palin Abortion Fund
Doug Stanhope is one of the smartest men around.

Here’s what he has to say, and he’s the head of the of the Sarah J Palin Abortion Fund
Thanks for being a feminist Doug! And thanks Satanica for the link!

Never in history has a woman been under more pressure to keep an
unwanted pregnancy than Bristol Palin. She is the teenage daughter of
Alaska Governor & Vice-Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin - a
conservative, Creationist Christian power-vampire and pro-life huckster
who has put Bristol and her un-welcomed fetus at the center of a
politico-religious crusade to stop her exercising her constitutional
right to terminate the pregnancy.

Rather than sit back and impotently bemoan Bristol’s tragic, lonely
circumstance, it is time for us - the silent majority - to unite behind
this poor, imprisoned woman and save her from both a tyrannical
household as well as the horrible nightmare of a forced childbirth.

These are not empty words. I, Doug Stanhope, am offering you, Bristol
Palin, the sum of 25,000 dollars so that you can abort your child and
move out of that draconian home. I have also set up a PayPal link so
that others around the world can help increase this amount to ease the
burden of starting out on your own at such an early age.

I was once in a similar situation where I’d accidentally impregnated a
girl and she had to make that same fateful decision that now faces you.
It was easy for her - she didn’t have a fascist, oligarch parent, the
entire Republican Party or the sneering eyes of the Christian Right to
contend with, much less a daft, puppet boyfriend who’s just waiting for
the cameras to stop rolling so he can bolt like a gazelle.

We made the right choice and rather than end up bitter rivals in court
battles over custody or support, we are great friends who high-five
over our decision and have all the free time and disposable income that
young mothers never know. I now pay it forward and offer some of that
money to you.

You don’t need to ruin your future in order to support the megalomaniacal self-promotion of a mother whose every action is rooted in a demonic ego and archaic superstition. Don’t become victim of the same pressure that had your brother "volunteering" for duty in Iraq.

Please consider my offer as time is of the essence. You don’t want this child, the father certainly doesn’t want this child and the world doesn’t need another wailing mouth to feed.

I empathize with the amount of attention, pressure and possibly out-right threats you are getting to give birth against your will and I understand that at your age, you may go through with it no matter how much you don’t want to. Either way, you have inspired me to try to make a difference.

Even if you cannot take my offer, I will still use my money or money donated through this page to pay for at least one abortion for a disadvantaged teenage girl each year for the rest of my life in the name of your mother. And in my will, I shall have a good portion of my estate turned into the Sarah J Palin Abortion Fund that will help girls from all walks of life from destroying their lives and our natural resources by having children.

You are not alone, Bristol. There are many of us out here who care.

Please show Bristol you care by either donating or signing the guestbook to let her know that there is true love for her outside of her current surroundings.

So as to negate any rumor-mongering that I seek to profit from this, I have changed the link so that any donations will go directly to http://www.LilithFund.org, a group that assists woman who need assistance paying for abortions. And I’ll raise my own offer to Bristol to $50,000 to keep up with the crashing US dollar.

Hand Book For Hot Witches
Hey Everyone! Guess What? I did so many Hand Book Blogs
and comics that I have a whole book pitch that I’m pitching with my agent now.
If you have any suggestions of publishing companies to approach or connections
please contact me and I’ll have m people talk to their people!
Thanks for supporting the sisters!
Love always and truly

Hand Book For Hot Witches
(A Field Guide For the Deflowered)
Written and Illustrated
By Dame Darcy
Contact: damedarcy@damedarcy.com

Combine graphic novel with a “how to” guide, add a dash of cook book and a fairy sprinkle of witch spell, wrap it all up with women’s herstory and you have the Hand Book For Hot Witches.

This is a girl’s guide to the apocalypse. This book addresses the unique needs women have, and covers
heavy issues like sustainable living once water, heat, and food have become scarce. It harkens back to an ancient time when women lead as the herbalist healers, nurturers and disciplinarians of the community. But also looks to the future and gives advice on how to handle crisis in a time of global extremes and addresses mood fluctuations and how to handle inner turmoil.

Hand Book For Hot Witches addresses our need for self defense.
It celebrates and acknowledges our inherent power of creativity, intuitiveness, and every female’ss role as a conduit to the spirit realm.

This guide book is for girl scouts grown up and facing the realities of surviving in the jungle of today’s
political society with complex ecological implications. And gives them simple answers through philosophy, skill, crafts and song to deal with these issues one step at a time through comics, fully illustrated step by step how to’s, in depth text with spot illustrations and resource guide.

Most of women’s history is blotted out from the pages of society.
Hand Book For Hot Witches recognizes and profiles “witches” who stood out of the crowd,
changed the world and fought for not just the rights of women but for humanity and for justice.
This book will help their legacy live on.

There are many “how to” books, and post petroleum guides of how to live sustainably.
The Hand Book For Hot Witches stands out from the rest because it has a unique view that addresses the needs of women. Although it brings up topics that at some times are hard to face,
the visual style and literary sense of humor make these overwhelming concepts and problems easier to handle and thus easier to solve.

This book is here to inspire individuals to make a change and inform them how to do it.
It’s also here to empathize with the current situation the world is in and does not ignore the symbiotic relationship that women have to mother nature. Respecting the earth is respecting womenkind, and respecting yourself.

The information and insight within is something daughters, mothers, and grandmothers can all relate to, connect with, and remember. To proactively create a future so all girls can inherit a legacy.

Love Letter:
Free the Whale
It’s really easy to sign this petition, and it’s never too late for justice
As a mermaid and an animal lover vegetarian for 20 yrs, my heart really goes out to this whale.
Please take a moment to read about Lolita and maybe you will be compelled to sign the petition to free her...

From: Wild Dolphin Foundation
Date: Aug 22, 2008 10:27 PM

The 38-year-old killer whale has sparked controversy since she was first sold to Seaquarium for $6,000 in 1970 after being snatched from her family pod in Puget Sound — a practice now effectively banned there. Lolita’s defenders decry not only confining such an intelligent marine mammal, but also the size of her tank, which is less than two of her body lengths wide at any point. "That’s like living your whole life in your closet," activist Shelby Proie says.

As Lolita nears 40, there’s a renewed push for her "retirement," especially as Seaquarium touts a new $5 million swimming-with-dolphins facility, making the rickety killer whale tank seem like a marketing afterthought. Activists want to see her moved to a sea pen, where it is hoped she might eventually re-join family. And the movement has gained some celebrity friends: Hollywood producer Raul Julia-Levy, son of the late actor Raul Julia, recently told Newsweek he was planning a benefit concert for Lolita, with Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent onboard.


It better be soon. Lolita is elderly by captive standards. "She probably has another five years in there, at most," Proie says. "She’s tired.

Seaquarium’s management is underwhelmed. "There’s nothing new to the story, from our perspective," says Michelle Palomino, spokesperson for the Virginia Key puddle collection.

Adds saccharine-sweet Seaquarium general manager Andrew Hertz: "Lolita will remain at Seaquarium surrounded by people who love and protect her.

Feeling masochistic and plum out of nipple clamps, Riptide decided to play Humbert Humbert. So we headed to Seaquarium and paid $43 for parking and entry, but passed on the seven-dollar Coke in a souvenir cup. After watching spandex-clad volunteers ride sea mammals around a tank to "Surfin’ U.S.A.," we skulked over to Lolita’s stadium. While the meager crowd mostly cheered the flopping whale, Wanda Campbell left midshow, trailing her young son. "It’s just sort of sad, isn’t it?" she said.

There is about as much educational benefit to be gained in studying dolphins in captivity as there would be studying mankind by only observing prisoners held in solitary confinement "- Jacques Cousteau

Don't Forget....Naughty Nautical Night #2 4/3/08

Naughty Nautical Night #2

Thursday, April 3rd

An ocean-themed cabaret and dance party, hosted by the delectable Victorian witch comic book illustrator Dame Darcy and America ’s first lady of dirty folk ditties, Ms. Jessica Delfino.

This show features a variety of weird performances by Dame Darcy, Jessica Delfino, Magin Schantz, uke-ist of the high seas Ben Lerman, electronic beach jamzz by Adira Amram, hot sailors, a vast assortment of sexy mermaid babes including burlesque featuring Victoria Kuper and friends, Margot Leitman enlightens us with a tale of the briny sea, belly dancing babes, Diane O’Debra will jolly roger the place up, house band Anchor Panky rocks the boat, DJ Kai keeps the tide high, fun surprises and treats for best sea-themed costumes (so come all dolled up pirate / sailor / sea-theme style) a board walk carnival where wares shall be hocked, really strange ocean themed drinks, damn, even puppets by Jared Whitcomb. It’s like a children’s show on acid, and not that junky acid that hurts your back, the real good shit that is so fresh and clean and when you wake up the next morning, it’s like it was all a dream.

On the last episode of NNN, Dame Darcy was being played by a very sexy male impostor who pretended to be her. Darcy was helpless to attend because she was under a spell cast on her by an evil demon known only as "the city of LA. " But the sea witch hag broke the spell and now Darcy is back, for reals, to co-host NNN with zest and glee! We’ve got some real treats planned for ya, so don’t be all, yeah! And then be all, whatever!

Ok, so Meat Cake 16 just came out, you can order it off the Fantagraphics books website. It will soon be available on Dame darcy.com as well. It’s really exciting and features a centerfold of my porn (which is actually pretty sailor boys in their swimming attire frolicking in paradise), also it features the Excorsisters, which is a prelude to a graphic novel I’m doing. Advice for life through witchcraft. About 4 teen girls in a rock band. As well as a weird fairytale that really happened to me, I went to catalina island and snuck into a ball with glass slippers and got a beautiful opal diamond and gold ring. Also don’t forget creepy granny on the cover and the story inside that explains granny’s eternal youthful appearance and how she tricks the girls of Meat Cake.

Oh my God everybody it’s officially on! The Gasoline graphic novel book deal is in progress with a due date slated for Oct 08 published by Merrell books based in NY and London. They do fancy art books that are distrubited internationally.They recently did an amazing book of The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago, an awesome groundbreaking feminist and I am elated and honored to be published by the same company. Her book is a through womens history and I have taken an exerpt from it, profiling Judith in her honor. I am so happy and excited that my appocalyptic dreams are coming true at last and awesome movie teams are in the process of putting together the feature film based on Gasoline at this very moment! Hey, so if any one has any questions or resources for this indepent movie endevor, I know I have mentioned this before but sed em my way, its happening faster now because of the book deal and it’s very exciting. I spend all my time now drawing, I have to do at least two drawings a day to meet the Oct 07 deadline, so no social life for me really lately, but I don’t care. I’m with the ink faeries! Thanks Joan Brookbank for caring about my life’s goal and making it happen in a classy way and to Maya Gottfried for hooking me up, you are golden!

Current Affairs/Love Letters
Speaking of Ink Faeries AND LOVE check out the awesome and amazing animation of Corey Michael Smithson. http://www.coreymichaelsmithson.com/Movies/AssemblyTest_e_NTSC_512K.swf He is absolutely the Bomb and has created an amazing animated commercial for witchcraft using the illustrations I did for the Gasoline Graphic novel. Its going with my reel to present with the rest of the package for Gasoline the movie. I LOVE HIM, his other work is genius, no kidding. You know that feeling of when you view a sunset while holding the head of a fragile little new born kitten in your hand while wearing ruby slippers and you get so excited rainbow stars burst out of your vagina as you fly? Well this is how I feel about Corey. Also speaking of Ink Faerie adventures,among others I met Jill Thomson (Scarry Godmother) and Neil Gaiman (Stardust) at the comics con and they were so amazing in person! It was a dream come true! This comics con was the best one ever thanks to my friend Cesar who really knows his stuff I have to say, the con this year was super intense and magical. More to be revealed later as it unfolds...Ha Ha Ha Ha!

Patron Saint
Judith is a legendary jewish figure, a devout and learned woman who’s story lies in the shadowy realm of history and fiction because it is from the 6th century BC. and told in the book of Judith. Her town of Bethulia had been taken over by the Assyrian general Holofernes and his troops. Who forced Jews into exile, took them into slavery, and committed rape on the jewish women. Judith couldn’t take it any more so she devised a plan. All dressed up in finery, smelling of perfume and carrying a basket of food an wine, she easily passed by the soldiers as if going to a party (of their doom) . Holofernes was bewitched bothered and beguiled by the glamour of Judith and invited her into his tent. Skilled with herbs and powders, she prepared the wine so it quickly put him to sleep. Quickly, she caught the tyrant by the hair and cut his head off with his own sword in two sharp strokes. She then put his head in the pick nick basket and reached the gates of the city with out being caught. When she placed his head on a spike at the front gate for all to see the Jews rose up against her oppressors who were now confused with out their leader and then retreated. That evening the women honored Judith with feasts and praises, holding a special ceremony in which they sang, played instruments, and danced into the night. Free at last!
Handbook For Hot Witches
I love to surf. Its one of the things to do at the beach near the survivalist compound that looks like Gasoline where I am currently drawing Gasoline. I go swimming and surfing in the ocean almost everyday. The ocean sends up an effervescent foam all around and its the only place to escape the stifiling smog and heat of LA. I swim with dolphins, and seagulls. I saw a seal the other day, it swam past me at a very close distance and looked back for a minute mirroring my curosity then casually dissappeared under the waves. The one problem with surfing at night is the creepy black fish swim against my legs and I am prompted to move from the water, these are the fish that accompany sharks my mermaid friend said. So for this reason though I love to swim at night I don’t any more, thus, dispite sunblock and hats sunburn is still a reality. One time when visiting my family in Idaho I went to Gold Bug, a magical place in the mountains with three teirs of waterfalls and swam with my brothers and cousins. It was so amazing! That night we slept in the boughs of trees under the stars but the next day I had the worst sunburn of my life! My cousin Angela Devine suggested to mix oatmeal with room tempature water, make it into a paste and put it on the sunburn. As it dries it takes out the burn and leaves you with a smooth pale complexion. It really worked! But as I lay on the lawn chair in the shade with oatmeal all over my face and arms, I fell asleep and the dogs licked it all off.
Attention cute witches! Come out and play with us on for Summer Solstice!

Mr. Brooke Shields & Bilge Baron* / MMNY Festival
and the NY Marble Cemetery

A Haunted Procession

at the New York Marble Cemetery
2nd Avenue above 2nd Street
down the long, long alley (next to the funeral home)

This unusual, somewhat secret cemetery is rarely open, so come and see this
serene, little-known NYC landmark and public historical space as it is
hosted by a procession of ghostly sea banshees performing spooky,
enchanting, operatic acoustic art-metal in a short (20 min) spector-laden
spectacle. This picnic-parade will be a rare, haunting acoustic set by the
normally outrageous quartet known as "Haunted Pussy", but today we must be
sonically gentle, as the delicate crumbling walls of the cemetery can’t
tolerate our typical metal decibels. Expect to witness something truly
spectre-tacular and magical. This unique "HP" show will be like none we’ve
ever done or will do again. Dress in ship’s captain clothing or the antique
lace threads of their mistresses and servants, like the ones buried there.
Indeed, sea-themed costume is encouraged.

Accompanying us in our procession will also be a band of melodic banshees,
classically trained string players and the dreamy mermaid murder-ballad
singing sea shantress, the one and only Dame Darcy.

4:00 PM - get comfortable, pick a spot to lay your blanket,
set up your picnic
4:30 PM - The musical parade / charade ensues (until about 5 PM)
5:00 PM on - enjoy the calm serenity of the Marble Cemetery until 8 PM.
This event is FREE, as part of the "Make Music NY" festival which encourages music in public places throughout NYC on JUNE 21st, 2007 - the first day of summer

Dogs welcome
B.Y.O: picnic, blanket, chair, hand-held fan, sun hat, snacks
(some chairs will be available there for your use)

Lemonade and light refreshments will be available for purchase, home-made and sold by 13 year old Rachel Trachtenburg (of Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Player fame!!) www.slideshowplayers.com

*Bilge Baron & Mr. Brooke Shields are known
for their work with Haunted Pussy.

About The Haunted Pussy:
(note the 5’s for s’s)
Haunted Pussy is a histrionic fear-metal band that delivers
ghoulish, mysterious, glorious tone poems in multi-genres.


Can’t wait to see you there!

coming and going, staying inside the space during the event and not pissing
all over the sidewalk as soon as you get around the corner – which,
incidentally, does attract the police and they will write you
a summons.

The less our neighbors have to complain about, the more fun we can have.

I also have a solo show at the Hyena Gallery coming up for may and my
friend Lisa Nardoni just opnened her new Gallery which will be
including me in a group show in April. All of this is the only details
I have thus far, but I assure you I will keep you in the know.

Love letter/current affairs

I can’t help but feel so many mixed emotions about the world lately. I
am in utter and childlike awe of the wonderous beauty of the sparkling
aquamarine ocean, the mountains, european and antique archecture and
staturary, and the beauty of animals and other humans, while at the
same time feel complete repulsion over how disgusting everything is at
the same time. Case in point, seals and relationships.
I went to the Hearst Castle for Valentines Day, it was awesome. A
patchwork collection put together by a fun and visionary millionare,
showing off his cowboy know how about European culture. I like to go to
touristy things like this, last year I went to New Schwannstein, the
castle built in Bavaria by my gay king Ludwig. Gay as in gay (he was
not happy) any way, I digress.
Though I really love these palaces, the way i got to see them was
absolutely disgusting. How could humans be so incredably ugly, wearing
gortex sandles and taking photos of the ugly construction waterpumps at
the hearst castle, sucking on sugar and pushing their prodigy and ugly,
fat, lover people around. I feel disgusted by it because I am no
better, unfortunately. And made of nothing different. I wish i could
just be a fairy made of light and just fly away from this dirty world.
I saw the seals near the castle. I loved their cute ways but was also
disgusted by their smell and loved/hated their weird sounds like
monkey/pig/dogs. They were lying around on each other wallowing in the
mud and having sex near their dead pups.
The tourists watched them facinated.
The old lady who smelled too strongly of lotion, the fat man and wife
in matching red track suits, the lady with the long barbie hair and her
daughters with the same hair. It all made me sea sick.
I think that I think sex is gross. Whats wrong with everybody anyway? I
can’t remember what I thought before? I vaguely remember thinking this
stuff as a kid though, seeing the brazen vaginas in trees and knowing
it was going to be my turn soon. Why does everything have to be so fat
and rutting?
Anyway, I don’t want toseem too negative, I just have put so much
faith and expected so much from people and the world, and perhaps I
shouldn’t think so much.

Patron Saint

Marion Davies
I read the autobiography she wrote as an old lady. I have to say , she
had one of the most amazing lives I have ever heard of. I am not
usually jelous of anyone really but her life, wow, anyone would be.
She’s the reason I went to the Hearst Castle, actually.
She was in some little vaudeville pony show for young girls and her
big sugar Daddy hearst picked her out of the crowd, pulled a few
strings and she was soon playing the lead in silent films in Hollywood,
which at that time were my grandest idea of utopia.
Hollywood was then a hillbilly paradise. All the amazing mountains,
ocean, forests, blooming flowers, but also thespians everywhere in
costumes mixed with the cowboys and native Mexicans but no traffic
jams, overcrowding, and tons of ghetto junk and pollution like there is
today. I wish so bad i could go back in a time-bubble and just ride
around Echo Park in one of those little mini yaughts they had.
Breathing the fresh air of down town LA. Anyway, Marion said she’d just
roll around on the MGM lawn, fly to Europe and still order hamburgers
and milkshakes.
Entertain Brando and (sigh) Valentino at the Hearst Castle, which her
and "Daddy" referred to as the ranch. They had an olympic swimming pool
in all blue and gold mosaic tiles. She even hung out with that airplane
guy "Lindy" who she said seemed nervous. She had such an extraordinary
life and she would just describe it so matter of fact and cavalier.
For this I love her and hate her. I have a love/ hate thing for
everything now a days. She reminds me of , looks like (with blonde wavy
hair and blue eyes), and has the personality of my doll Isabelle, who
is from 1927 and has a really boushie and bratty attitude. At the
cabaret she did with Satanica, she won a Diva award. I think Marion
Davies deserves a similar award and definately got it. However, she is
undeniably (though vampirically) just too cute.

How to survive...

How to survive a rip tide: To escape a rip current, swim parrallel to
shore until you are beyond the pull ofthe rip current. If you can not
swim out of the rip tide, float on your back and allow the rip tide to
take you away from the shore until you are beyond the pull of the rip
tide. Rip currents generally subside 50 to 100 yards from shore. Once
the riptide subsides, swim sideways and back to shore.

How to find your way with out a compass: You need an analog watch and
a six inch stick.
Nothern hemisphere: Place a small stick vertically in the ground so
that it casts a shadow. Place the watch on the ground so the hour hand
is parallel to the shadow. In the southern hemisphere place your watch
so that the 12:00 is parrallel to the shadow. Find the point on the
watch midway between the hour hand and 12:00 (during day light savings,
summer, 1:00) draw an amaginary line from that point through the center
of the watch. This imaginary line is the north-south line. The sun will
be located toward the south.
Star Method: The north star is the handle of the little Dipper.
Walking toward it means you are walking north. You can use the big
dipper to find the north star. A straight imaginary line drawn between
the two stars at the end of the big dippers bowl willpoint to the north
Southern Hemisphere: Find the southern cross. The southern cross is a
group of four bright stars in the shape of a cross and tilted to one
side. Imagine the long axis extends in a line five times its actual
length. The point where this line ends is south. If you can veiw the
horizon, draw an imaginary line straight down to the ground to create a
southern landmark.
Cloud Method: Generally weather moves east to west.

How to escape when tied up:
When your captors bind you expand your body as much as possble. In
hale and push against the bonds. When your captors are away suck in
your chest and stomach and wriggle free.
Hand and wrist bonds: Keep your wrists apart as much as possible. Use
a stick or spike or pull the bonds free with your teeth. Fold your
thumb into the palm of your hand and work your hands free.
Brace toes and kees together thus keeping ankles apart.

I got this info from a book at my mom’s house called The worst case
scenero survival handbook by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht.
I picked these because i have this weird fear of being kidnapped, and
so, my dear friends, please keep track of me and make sure it never
happens. Also, I like to swim in the ocean and have been caught in rip
tides before. I also am dyslexic and don’t want a Blair witch scienero
to go down
in the woods not knowing which way is north and get all my friends
teeth ripped out by a flying witch/baby/horse.

Most men wouldn’t care about it if they didn’t have to, though I do appreciate and know that there are true romantics out there. So, with that in mind, I’d like to say, to the ladies, that weather your single or not (or don’t care) that the love of your friends and family is not to be underestimated to remember each other and that you are not alone on this day, even if your best friends are with their husband or boyfriend on V day , make a date before or afterward to have a tea party or exchange valentines, and to encourage each other to not feel alone. Don’t believe the hype, you can celebrate any old day any old way you darn well want! Isabelle just told me to mention "And dolls too!" Current Affairs I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I actually like LA lately. The sunsets here in Echo Park are incredible! Perhaps because of the pollution, but whatever, they are psychedelic. Plus I love all my friends and neighbors. My car broke a couple months ago (I’m saving to get a bio-diesel or something next) and I just walk around in my never ending California dreamin’ summer all the time. Maybe I mentioned this before? Anyway, everything else with Gasoline, Meat Cake, Death By Doll, and the Excorsisters, is going well, and I have it a little secret until it is unleashed like a eco-feminist pale pink and glittering black apocalyptic title wave of sweet goodness upon the world. Pray to the Black Madonna every ding dang day that the glory will reign and all rightness restored to what it was before the oil crisis and the advent of industrialist society. Utopia is ours now. Witches not bitches till eternity! Patron Saint Maya Derin You know, the Da Da film maker from the 1940’s. She is so beautiful and nutso. Watch her crawl on the ceiling, and run in hot persuit of the burka mirror faced woman, all the while in bohemian sandles. See how she seduces business men by crawling on their conference table while wearing a tightfitting sexy dress. She watches herself as she sleeps. And what is that key for? Flying people dance among the stars in a dreamscape! She practiced voodoo and I heard died young because she got possessed by a spirit at a party, threw the refrigerator, and died of an aneurysm. I don’t know if this is true, but if your going to go out sometime, you might as well do it so the art crowd is still talking about you + caring about your movies 60 yrs. later and on into the future! Maya, where ever your witchy soul rests, may it find the same magic you bought to us while on your brief stint here. Hand Book for Hot Witches This was sent to me lovingly by my friend Go Go Max I am supposed to send it on like a chain letter to all the girls of the world so here goes: Rapist’s Eyes (No Joke) >>A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what >>they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1) The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed . They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2) The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly . Many of them carry scissors around specifically to cut clothing.
3) They also look for women on their cell phone , searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered. 4) Men are most likely to attack & rape in the early morning, between 5: 00am. and 8:30a.m.
5) The number one place women are abducted from/attacked is grocery store parking lots. Number two is office parking lots/garages. Number three is public restrooms.
6) The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to another location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
7) Only 2% said they carried weapons because rape carries a 3-5 year sentence but rape with a weapon is 15-20 years.
8) If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9) These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands. Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
10) Several defense mechanisms he taught us are: If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: "I can’t believe it is so cold out here", "we’re in for a bad winter." Now you’ve seen their face and could identify them in a line-up; you lose appeal as a target.
11) If someone is coming toward you , hold out your hands in front of you and yell STOP or STAY BACK ! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
12) If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yell I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
13) If someone grabs you , you can’t beat them with strength but you can by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm (between the elbow and armpit) OR in the upper inner thigh VERY VERY HARD . One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands - the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it hurts. 14) After the initial hit, always GO for the GROIN . I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
15) When the guy puts his hands up to you , grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible . The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.
16) Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts!!! You may feel a little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble. PLEASE READ THEN FORWARD THIS TO EVERY WOMAN YOU KNOW, IT’S SIMPLE STUFF BUT IT COULD SAVE HER LIFE

breathing Gasoline all day and all night for weeks thus far and now we’re

It doesn’t look like its going to stop any time soon. So many tasks to
undertake and so many amazing opportunities we have in abundance and awesome
people interested and involved in our movie its awesome!
Thanks Universe ! And in particular Josie Basford, queen savior!
We’ve been brain storming for weeks on the tag line and came up with a few
good ones like...
"Apocalypse?...WOW!" and "Is that an apocalypse in your pocket
We finally decided on "Rock N Roll Apocalyptic Fairytale".
Here’s the Synopsys Josie and Peter finished last night for the movie, it

“A Rock & Roll Apocalyptic Fairy Tale”


A post -apocalyptic tale of cunning, heart pounding adventure begins at the peak of American society’s corporate greed, corruption, and materialism. A fiery apocalypse reigns down on the world from above and destroys, seemingly, all of earthly civilization.

From the rubble and chaos emerge few survivors. Among them, a whimsical family of orphaned witches (The Armbusters). Having established a utopian village, “Karoi”, the eclectic and erratic Armbusters then work to uphold their position of power through the maintenance of their car, the only working automobile remaining after the great disaster. To do this, they must venture outside their walls of protection in search of gasoline, now more precious than gold.

Their harrowing odyssey through a ruined but aesthetically mesmerizing landscape where nature has superseded technology leads The Armbusters to the many conflicts within themselves, and pits them against the conniving nihilists that now lurk in the abandoned places of decaying urban sprawl. The new dark age is upon them.

Their post-apocalyptic tale is one of hope, and through their trials, they learn to adopt a new way of functioning and are forced to change in order to survive the land they now inhabit. Learning how nature and technology can work harmoniously. Rich with rock performances, glitter and glamour, outrageous characters emerge throughout. Encountering fairies, witches, nihilists, sailor zombies and otherworldly creatures GASOLINE is interlaced with symbolic imagery, dialog and music. We are guided to a passage of magic in a fairy tale of hope for the future of mankind.

A series of animated flashback sequences for the lead characters explain, through their unique experience, how they are exposed to all of the choices and alternatives existing that they were previously blind to while caught up in a life of comparative luxury. It is a supremely artistic and entrancingly bizarre story with contemporary relevance and an ecological message. It provokes intellectual and creative questions, examines human fallibility, and shows us how we can live today, this moment, in harmony with the natural world. It is a perilous and visually stunning tale of danger and suspense, of heartbreak and redemption, of versatility, compassion, strength, and above all, the perseverance of magic and love.

And the latest review:
"Josie, the business plan reads well, it’s clear and concise and has alot of
energy in it. The synopsys is good too. I seldom read a synopsys, so I can
only say that it explained the storyline clearly to me and I want to see the
film! So hurry up and get it made"~ Mom

Thanks for your support mom
(what would we all do with out Mom-power?)

Current Affairs

Thanks to Jackie, Leilani, and Philip, who help me daily with the site and so
many other countless things none of this would be possible . I really love
you guys and appreciate all your awesome skill and talent.
I’ve been working on the new DameDarcy.com designs. Besides upgrading the
art gallery to its full luxuriousness, We’re going to soon enjoy a
recreational community center with fun witch games, clothes to try on, and a
place to hang art and chat with each other, and lots more!
I’m going to make a drive in movie theatre with animation and a game to play
where you can be any Meat Cake Character and explore the weird town they
live in , Sobriety Straights. I’ve been drawing a lot.
I also like to explore my neighborhood. There are a lot of fantastical things
to be found under this rollicking always blue California sky with its ever
blooming flowers and endless fruit trees and cute homes. Today the universe
gave me a wonderous antique mermaid scale purse for free, made entirely of
faux mermaid scales, I know this is worth at least 7 million dollars, I’m
definately going to wear it to the (LA) rap party at the Biltmore Hotel in
down town.

Patron Saint

When Death By Doll played in Olympia and I did a show in Seattle Miss
Oblivious’s beautiful 9 yr. old daughter Darby gave me the cutest doll of
Susan B. Anthony. She lives inside a little paper house, that has an
inscription written in it that made me cry, here’s what it said:

Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)

A well educated woman with strong moral values. Susan Bronell-Anthony was a
major figure in the movement for women’s suffrage. In November, 1872, she
voted, thereby challenging the law prohibiting women from the polls. She was
tried, convicted, and a fine was levied against her which she refused to
For over 50 years, Miss Anthony worked for women’s rights to vote. Although
ridiculed, scorned, and discouraged at times, she never admitted defeat. It
was not until 14 yrs. after her death that women won their constitutional
right to vote.

We’re fighting the good fight for you Susan! And we’re not gonna stop!

Speaking of Suffragettes:
Also, have you ever noticed what a hot witch Julie Andrews makes as Mary
She flys around, spins in a periotte so fast she blurrs, she puts on makup
while sitting on a cloud floating above England, she is always really
together and runs by strict school teacher rules but lives in total magic
and serendipity. She wins all the awards and all the boys love her, but
she’s not fame grabby or slutty about it, she just takes it as matter of
fact. She has amazing blue eyes, dark hair, a suffragette costume and little
vampire teeth that show when she sings. Her crystal ball is a snow globe,
birds love her. And she works for a rich lady who is a suffragette. Plus
she makes dolls alive!
HOT! Speaking of Hot witches...

Hand Book For Hot Witches
Here’s a little ditty from that fairy movie we all know and love Xanadu.
Its the anthem for our DOTS production coven and it’s awesome. I know it’s
got past associations with nerdy 13 yr old girls from the 80’s but seriously
seperate it (or conjoin it) with that and really look at the lyrics. They
are a serious magic spell, and BTW Xanadu was a very successful feature

Come take my hand
you should know me
I’ll always be in your mind
You know I will be kind
I’ll be guiding you

Building your dream
has to start now
theres no other road to take
you won’t make a mistake

You have to believe we are magic
nothing can stand in our way
you have to believe we are magic
don’t let your aim ever stray
and if all your hopes survive
destiny will arrive
and make all your dreams alive
for you

From where I stand
you are home free
the planets align so rare
there’s promice in the air
and I’m guiding you

Through every turn
I’ll be near you.
I’ll come any time you call
I’ll catch you when you fall
I’ll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic!
Nothing can stand in our way
you have to believe we are magic
don’t let your aim ever stray
and if all your hopes survive
destiny will arrive
and make all your dreams alive
for you!

^v^ Gasoline The Movie philosophy abridged ^v^

This is a fairy tale for you, America.
Hot cars, fashion, sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, are used to tell an analogy.
The true message behind Gasoline is that MAGIC and LIFE prevail over today’s nuclear socio-economic and environmental threat.
A family of post apocalyptic, rock star witches search for Gasoline in a nihilistic landscape.
They are from a utopian society where technology works with nature and everything is recycled or reused.
All races live together but retain their autonomy and cultural histories, lending them to the classless society to help the human race be strong and survive.
Gasoline is here to teach and inspire every individual to count on your own utilitarianism, creativity, and versatility and to face the apocalypse with flexibility and humor. Which is also how we are producing his movie.

Really makes the apocalypse sound funny right?

When I think of Christmas I think of...Hmmm, sleigh bells on Kit666tens, Velvet Blue Girls Tied up in White Sashes, Snow Flakes on my Warm Noodles, Bright Copper Kettles With Crisp Golden Wings...These are a few of my Favorite things...
Naw, when I think of Christmas I think of...Fundamentalism! Yeah that’s it! We’ve all heard of fundamentalist Christians but journalists, film makers, novelists, rock stars, critics, and other artists can be fundamentalists too...so can liberals, atheists, capitalists, hedonists, the patriot, the nihilist, the dirty hippie, and the goth.
All of us are dogmatic and fundamentalist. Don’t let your imagination be enslaved to your belief system.
When fundamentalism gets dangerous is when we artists, (who are the reflection and also the designer of society) believe the hype and start generating depressing nihilistic views of the human condition.
The fundamentalists need to loosen up and stop taking themselves way too seriously. Why all the ego anyway?
What happened to our pal, Mirth?
And speaking of Mirth I wanted to celebrate Christmas by wishing you all a Holliday card depicting the Hanukkah Harlot being butt fucked by Jesus---------> (http://myspace-794.vo.llnwd.net/01547/49/75/1547295794_l.jpg)
This was apparently the same card that the Bass player from Quiet Riot used, I’m biting his style this holiday season.
Satanica is the biggest purveyor of Mirth in all the land and even throws a Festival of Mirth!
And Speaking of Jesus and the season of Mirth I’d like to send a friendly warning shot across the bow from the Catholic Witch team, and proclaim, “Thanks Jesus for hanging out with whores!”, Also, thanks for practicing magic, drinking wine, and always being the life of the Christmas party!
Thanks Jesus for being a Feminist!
And thanks Mother Mary for your immaculate conception, and for surviving as a pagan Goddess to inspire us all every winter solstice.
To read more witches opinions about Fundamentalism this Christmas please go to Rob Brezney’s Blog http://www.freewillastrology.com/
And speaking of Mother Mary...
^v^ Mary “Mother” Jones ^v^
Here’s a little ditty you all know about the Apocalypse, or maybe it’s about Mother Jones, same diff...
OHHH! She’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes! WHEN SHE COMES! She’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes! WHEN SHE COMES! She’ll be drivin’ 666 white horses when she comes! WHEN SHE COMES! OH we’ll kill the old red rooster when she comes! WHEN SHE CUMS! We’ll all be shoutin’ “Hallelujah” when she comes! WHEN SHE COMES!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MERRY X-MAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
more about Mother...
is “she” the train coming down the new born Midwestern tracks being laid out by Victorian workers? Or is “she” union organizer Mary Harris Mother Jones, going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal mining camps. With her mythological white horses and the celebration to follow her arrival... OR is this song about the horses of the apocalypse and the end of the world?

Weds the winter solstice starts this Thursday the 21st of Dec.2006 the day after the new moon. So this is a good time to do a solstice advent calendar ritual about new beginnings!
There are 10 days between the solstice and the first day of the New Year.
The number 10 = completion. The number 11 = genius, fairies, and the Oroborous (the ultimate-infinite) and is the number of Gold
In this spell the first day of the year Jan.1st Mon. starts on the 11th day of this spell.
