Neon lights in midnight rain. This blog is: Girls, glam, glitter, grime, guns, gams, goth, and all that is good. (If it didn't happen in the '30s or the '80s, then it didn't happen.)

BEWARE OF: flashy .gifs, nudity, guns, threatening situations, mildly sexual images, occasional (fake) blood, and other stuff you'd find in an R-rated Hollywood movie.

This account is mostly visual inspiration for, and distraction from, the comic I should be drawing right now: Even Death May Die!: A dieselpunk thrill-venture!

Me: Vancouver. Dude. Writer, filmmaker, designer, generally a lover. Talks about writing and creative stuff on Twitter.

Photo reblogged from Old Hollywood with 804 notes

oldhollywood:

1930s imagining of 1980s New York via the sci-fi musical Just Imagine (1930, dir. David Butler) More on the building of the set here. The opening scenes of the film, which feature this cityscape, can be seen here.
Buildings 250 stories high!…traffic on nine levels…rockets that shoot  from star to star…airplanes that land on the roofs of buildings…a whole  meal in a capsule that can be swallowed in one gulp…  No — this isn’t a  Jules Verne dream induced by a Welsh rarebit.  It’s New York in 1980, as  foretold in the new Fox picture, Just Imagine!
In 1980, people have          serial numbers, not names, marriages are all arranged by the courts…Prohibition          is still an issue…Men’s clothes have but one pocket. That’s on the hip…but          there’s still love! Don’t laugh! Our grandaddies laughed at the thought          that men might fly! Fantastic? Certainly—but stranger things have come          to pass than those which have been portrayed in this dream of New York          of A.D. 1980!
-excerpted from Just Imagine’s promotional campaign materials, reprinted in Ruth Waterbury’s Photoplay: The aristocrat of motion picture magazines
