Not For The Faint Of Heart

This next post was sparked by convo I received from outofthepinksky who recently introduced me to a quite bizarre site. I immediately fell in love with this restaurant called Hospitalis located in Riga, Latvia.

Its a place where your servers are hot alternative lady nurses that strongly resemble the nurse from this NoFX cd cover.

The meal above makes me want to vomit but how fucking rad is that disgusting gravy puddled plate?! and are those utensils or just decoration...

The decor is just as alluring. It has a "your stuck here whether you like it or not" quality about it. I wonder if it has that hospital smell too.

Male nurse tenders! nuff said

and WHOA! you enter this bathroom sloshed and you'll probably never find your way out again.

Clearly Hospitalis has the potential to push you off the edge and if your afraid of hospitals it may not be a good idea to make reservations any time soon... or ever. On the other hand, if you've been looking for something fucked up to do in the new year this could be it. I'm adding it to my own restaurant to-do list right after Alinea. I'll let you know how she goes!

Caution! Contagious Lyrics Ahead

Heres a song that had me thinking, "what the shit?!" the first time I heard it... Now I can't stop singing it around the house. I think its the accent that makes it so killer.

"I am Naked, Mm, Mm
Oh naked, so what?"

Stereo Total - I am Naked

Go ahead, give her a listen :)

New for November!

With all the busy-ness and goings on in September I didn't get around to changing my featured seller. Not good!, I know. Hopefully the next time that happens it'll be because I've given up on this blogging thing and not due to my own suckiness.

But Novembers a new month! so without further babble, I introduce to you miss blackeyedsuzie.

Her gorgeous "A Parasol for Agatha" doll will be watching us from the top right corner of this blog. Just waiting for you to look away so she can steal your soul!... or give you kisses. Its hard to say.

much more to see in her Etsy shop.
