Kimieye my middle name comes to me from my Japanese grandmother. When I was choosing a name for my business I wanted something that spoke to my mixed heritage but was also uniquely mine.
After being raised in Salem, Ma (The Witch City). I spent my late teens and early twenties on my own haunting the decaying mansions & student ghettos of Allston with horror punks and burlesque girls.
After graduating from The Massachusetts College Of Art and Design with a Degree focusing on traditional handmade stop motion, I began working with the Bad Ass Kids of Boston and Cambridge. Arming them with both Crafts and Cameras I also tried to Socratically hone their minds and have facilitated workshops on everything from a boys knitting group to a critical analysis of gender and racial tensions in slasher films.
I am currently working on my own projects in Brighton, MA with my live in musician, a hateful yellow cat & a staggering amount of library books both overdue and otherwise.
Primarily a Cut Paper Artist I make my work by hand drawing out every unique illustration on black paper and cutting them out with an exact o blade

My friend and I where noticing how many songs there are about kicking an ex out your house...So i made a list and the list goes like this:
if you don't come get your shit out of my house, I will:
1) be a diva
2)leave all your shit on the portch
3) set fire to your shit
4) total your car
5) kill you and bury you under the doubble wide
...I would like to continue this list so give me suggestions!
she raced the night, and she raced it valiantly. she gobbled down the stars, and slurped the marrow out of the darkness. her fingers sizzled; her eyes flared. she smiled the murderers did after a conquest. she smiled the way the devil did, because she knew something that the world didn't. she was death, and she bore no shame.
It's that time of season, boys and ghouls. Gather round, and listen to this excellent mix of wonderful, scary, and chilling indie songs to suit your Halloween needs! This mix features a great spread of Halloween favorites, but has many Indie Rock songs for its basis. Some of the artists are Radiohead, Seawolf, and Two Door Cinema Club. Anyways, I hope you like the mix, and have a Happy Halloween!
For hushed stories told in the back of bars. For the man found in the quarry just outside of town. For the note left at the sheriff's station without a signature. For adrenaline blacking out memories of gunshots. For dusty case files in forgotten storerooms. For wronged lovers and passionate pleas. For a single knife missing from the block. For secrets kept for a lifetime. For getting away with murder.
As usual this is a mix of modern music, oldies, and all around goodies. A Halloween mix.
"Lock your doors and turn out the lights, or ghosts and goblins will spook you with fright! Jump in bed then pull the covers up tight, close your eyes until the morning light!”
30 + actors singing covers* of popular songs including: Johnny Depp, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto & Robert Pattinson...
If you have any suggestions, let me know I'll try and find it and put it on here.
*some are originals :]
You know that moment when you listen to a cover that's better than original? well? No one? anyway
these are some covers that I happen to like, but they are not necessarily better than the originals.
so this mix includes music by Mumford & sons, The National, Two Doors cinema Club, Noah And The Whale etc..
enjoy your summer folks!
and Happy Listening!!
"And I thought about how many people have loved these songs. And how many people got through a lot of bad times because of those songs. And how many people enjoyed good times with those songs. And how much those songs really mean. I bet if I wrote one of them, I would be very proud. I hope the people who wrote those songs are happy. I hope that they feel it's enough. I really do because they've made me happy. And I'm only one person."
-The Perks of Being a Wallflower
A collection of drinking songs that will boost your spirits and not have you sobbing at the bottom of your glass.
-For people who like those old delta blues guitars, boastful drinking chants and the touch of a chilled glass of your favorite bottle.
