October is a time of year when the veil between the living world and the spirit world is at its thinnest, allowing spirits easy access to pass between both. This tends to make Antebellum artists feel frisky! witches & warlocks for centuries have received a bad rap.
Throughout the early modern period, the English term “witch” or “warlock” was not exclusively negative in meaning. it is indifferent to say, ‘she/he is a witch/warlock’ or ‘she/he is a wise woman/man'”. Seance is an attempt to communicate with spirits, specifically meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from spirits or to listen to a spirit medium.
Our spirits continue on with our sensuality intact. It’s all about longing and unrequited passion. There’s a longing for something you can’t quite touch or see. People are drawn to it and fetishize it.

A comedy about a place where the sun never shines.
Guess what we watched at TOM House over the weekend – AGAIN? OMG, we love this comedy from Helsinki-filmi. No wonder it won so many awards! It’s sexy and smart, sad and genuine – and way funny. If you haven’t seen it – watch it. Every project that this extraordinary Finnish company has taken on – comedy, drama – results in magic and makes us PROUD that they have asked for our collaboration on the TOM OF FINLAND movie they are producing.
