Rhiannon is a lunar Welsh goddess of inspiration. Her name means “Great Queen,” and serves as a muse for poets, artists, and royalty. She is also a goddess of transformation, easing the dead into the afterlife and carries their souls upon her white horse. She is a shapeshifter, and will often appear as a bird, animal, or through a song.

There are almost 6,000 of these covers around the country, turning unattractive necessities into eye candy. Photographer S. Morita has documented hundreds of these covers over the years which are available on Morita’s Flickr page.

Lilli Waters, Black Sunday

Black Sunday uncovers the unsettling and beautiful similarity between wild women and wolves. Both endangered species, they are relational by nature and intensely concerned with their young, their mate, and their pack. The wild feminine in our over domesticated culture may have been buried, but underneath we are aware that she remains much like that of the wolf; a strong life force, life-giving, aware, loyal and roving.

Elliott Smith died ten years ago today at the age of 34 from two stab wounds to the chest. Two. At the time of the stabbing, he was at his Lemoyne Street home in Echo Park, California where he lived with his girlfriend, Jennifer Chiba. According to Chiba, the two were arguing, and she locked herself in the bathroom to take a shower. Chiba heard him scream, and upon opening the door, saw Elliott standing with a knife in his chest. She pulled the knife out, after which he collapsed. He died in the hospital with the time of death listed as 1:36 p.m. A possible suicide note, written on a Post-it, read:

"I’m so sorry.
—love, Elliott.

God forgive me.”

His death was reported as a suicide, but never formally ruled as such. The official autopsy report released in December 2003 left open the question of homicide. The case, however, is no longer being investigated.

On July 30, 2004, nine months and nine days after Elliott’s death, Jennifer Chiba filed a lawsuit against his family for 15% of his earnings, claiming that she and Elliott lived as “husband and wife”.

She lost.

The Three Sisters of Fate.

"The Fates, or the Moerae, were invoked at birth to decide a man’s destiny. Often depicted as spinners, Clotho, at the right, with a spindle spins out the thread of life, while Lachesis, at the left, measures the length of a life, and Atropos, with the shears, cuts it off."
