I’m 40 years young and work for the NHS as an Orbital Prosthetist.
After a recent shoot which is normally fitness related I decided that I wanted to have some photo’s just me being me and I have always loved this iconic image which was so much fun to do. It’s so nice to show that even women with muscles can look sexy! Always dared to be different and for me the pin up style is so feminine and sexy. With thanks to Matt Shoemaker for the image.

The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention in Maastricht is about to kick off again! During the weekend of February 27th and 28th 2016, the tattoo event of the southern part of The Netherlands will take place at the MECC Maastricht.
The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention is an international event in which tattoo artists from home and abroad participate. This convention is known for its warm, cosy and friendly atmosphere for visitors and participants. The fact that the artists this year will settle in the foyer of the MECC for the first time, will contribute to this even more!
Visitors can of course be tattooed, or simply admire the art of tattooing. One can shop and stroll along the various colourful stands with clothing, piercing, jewellery, and more. The Grimeshop shows body paint demonstrations and also paints the most beautiful art on visitors if desired. Of course, as always, there will be lots of attention for street art at the convention: various street art artists will participate and let their creativity run wild.
Back at the convention: The Tattoo Preservation Service, which uses a careful and scientific method to preserve tattooed skin after death. This way your tattoo turns into a work of art that remains forever. Religious organization ‘De Kracht van de Veilige Naald’ (‘The Strength of the Safe Needle’) is present again to promote the acceptance of tattoos and will be tattooing, free of cost, the symbol of the oldest religion in the world – Tatooism – on everyone that wants it.
This auction, The Auction at Graceland, starts at 7:00 PM CST on the 7th. To honor the memory of his great talent, we are pleased to announce the opportunity to participate in the upcoming Auction at Graceland. This is the third Elvis auction we’ve held since last year. Elvis sang his way into the hearts of fans and his light continues to shine in the hearts of collectors and fans everywhere. His legacy lives on, and what better way to continue that than owning a piece of his history!
Here are a few lots for example:
Shaking Bones are a neo rockabilly trio based in London. They recently released their last EP “Gimme Some More” produced by Rolling Records. I listened to their title song on soundcloud and it sounded very good to me. I like the rhythm and blues influences with the harmonica mixed with rockabilly, so let’s see what this band is all about.
Tell us about the band
Shaking Bones were formed in London in 2014 when Luca Scaggiante met Loris Peverani at Tech Music School. Initially the band was a rockabilly/swing duo (drums, guit/vocals), then the two came across Garry Tyrrell Lynch, slapping double bass player, and began gigging all over the place as a more-aggressive trio.
It was an honor to be invited to play on the big 10th anniversary party of The Cruisers Rock and Roll club in Vlamertinge Belgium. Cedric and his friends organized this event, with four bands, 5-o-matics (NL), Dan Cash and the Road Rockers (FR/BE), Tabasco Wild Band (FR) and yours truly Dee’s Honeytones. Also enough stands to buy your clothes, records and accessoires and very important dj Gegene!
We made some new Belgian and French friends. The cruisers members are like one big family. Everyone helped to make this event a big hit. The bands got a warm welcome. Also nice to watch the other bands.
Vaudezilla was born in 2008 when solo Chicago burlesque performer Red Hot Annie teamed up with Keith Emroll (aka Dick Dijon) to put their more than 20 years of combined theatrical production experience to work producing burlesque shows. Since then, they have injected a consistent display of vitality and originality that plays a key role in Chicago’s visibility on the national burlesque map.

It doesn’t happen very often that a band surprises me for a second time around. But The Surfaders did it! Remember the article I wrote a while back ago about their first cd? It happens that i saw them a year later, at the Driveinn Barn. There I saw Stephen(guitarplayer at The Surfaders) again, and he told me about the new cd, and made me curious. He told me that the rockabillytracks were lost in translation, but the plan of vocals was still active. It would be the first performance with voice. I was most impressed! Title of this cd is A Greater Silence, being a spoof of the movie The Great Silence, a spaghettiwestern from 1968.
Spaghettiwestern seems to be a big theme on this album. There are a lot of cowboysongs on it, but the biggest treat is the fact that they added vocals to the mix! This album has a darker twist to it, more like the tracks of Zombie Ghost Train mixed with the sound of the Shadows or The Rapiers.
Burlesque Kingdom is one of my favorite spots for a night out. Live music and beautiful dancers in an area my daddy forbid me to go to: the Red Light district in Amsterdam! The best thing tonight is I got to play there with my band Dee Ann and the Nightcaptains.
It’s a small but cosy nightclub, where tourists and locals come for a drink and a curious peek into the world of Burlesque. Fay Loren is a burlesque dancer and the organizer of this Burlesque event. Twice a month on a Friday she invites a local and an international dancer to dance with her on the small red curtain stage. A band and a d.j. fill the evening with great music and presenter strings all the entertainment together.

Hi, I’m Melanie aka The Sweet Painted Lady , mid-century, pinup loving mama, blogger and a vintage hair and makeup artist in New Zealand. Hubby and I love mid century style and are currently doing up our 50’s home and a 52 chev ( the other wife ). Keen supporters of the vintage and rockabilly scene here in NZ we organize and run the annual Atomic Market held at the Classics Museum in Hamilton.
Lara Hope and the Ark-tones are hell raisin’ hepcats from the Hudson Valley. My lovely wife very wisely brought me to one of their Austin shows this last winter and I was charmed not only by their rock solid mixture of classic rockabilly and roots rock sounds, but their extremely energetic live show. Naturally the next chance I got, I set up an interview!
First off, tell us about yourself and the history of the band?
Lara Hope has played in numerous bands over the years. Lara Hope and the Champtones was her first rockabilly endeavor. After Matt’s band, the Arkhams (an internationally recognized Psychobilly band) backed her up for a summer of shows, the band became Lara Hope and the Ark-tones, as her previous collaborator, Jeff Kadlic, who builds custom Telecaster style guitars under the name “champtone guitars” parted. The one and only “Tiger Piss”, Lara’s punk N Roll band (where she plays bass and sings) is still active after 8+ years.
Stray Cats “live at rockpalast- 1983 lorely open air dvd + 1981 Cologne ( cd).
Rockpalast a great german tv concert series that captured all the great acts live while playing in Germany.
Remember taping this performance to vhs?
Now it’s out on dvd and cd ( a performance from two years earlier in Cologne).
The Stray Cats at their prime, a rockabilly trio at full force.
Story goes they where mocked because they only had a small stand up drum kit, one guitar amp and a double bass.
At the time walls off marshall amps where all they rage ( I believe they still are).
They blew the audience away nevertheless.
As a bonus also a live cd from a show ” the cats ” did in 1981 in Cologne.
Better late then never.
What to write about another Brian Setzer album?
The man has been relasing great albums for years.
After hearing the first track (let’s shake) of the album fear took over as this reviewer thaught Brian sold his soul to the devil but after hearing the rest of the album my mind was put at easy, the album is kick ass and sees mr Setzer in tip top shape with his timeless twang and rockabilly sounds, backed by Mark Winchester on bass ( good to see he’s back), Noah Levy on drums and Kevin McKendree on piano the band sounds fresh and lays down 12 original songs.
One album that can’t be missed in one’s collection.

We had a great time at Franeker Rock and roll Festival. The sixth edition of this annual festival had two small stages and a main stage throughout the city center of Franeker (Friesland, The Netherlands).
The weather was rough, windy, rainy, but as we kept on rocking and rolling on the outdoor stages, we kept ourselves warm.
