Haunted by Bobbi Joe

Every once in a while I hear or think about this tune and the mystery at its core.

The enigma of her best-known song is nothing compared to that of Bobbie Gentry herself. In the early ’70s, she was riding high—headlining in Vegas, dueting with Glen Campbell on several hits, hosting her own TV series. Then around 1975, after contributing music to a movie based on “Ode,” she simply checked out. She has not been heard from in over 35 years. All requests for interviews, recordings and performances have been denied. She is said to be living in the Los Angeles area. - Source [The timing of her dropping from view is a tad more about Bobbi Gentry]

Grave Robbing

So recently, in the graveyard of a smaller rural Newfoundland community, a young man broke into a slab top grave c. late 1800s, and took some of the remains. A lot of the remains pulled from the grave were left scattered around the graveyard and elsewhere. In fact, he may have been located by following the trail of discarded bones.

There were also rumours that he'd been caught at home boiling the bones. At first it was thought he was making soup...!? But, I heard that this guy is really into skulls and wanted a human one. He'd been frustrated in his efforts to get one online so....


He is being charged May 1.

This is what encouraging foraging gets you.

The Gothic

Well, the end of the 2nd semester of the first year of my Textiles Program is tomorrow. I am still racing to finish a few projects! And then, end of April, there will be one final short semester (Business Writing, Production Coordination, Industrial Sewing) to go. This post will be brief but beautiful! I was so inspired after watching this, well, details from Strawberry Hill might just end up in a project or two next year. There's just so many possibilities!
