What are the secrets locked deep in history that are haunting us each and everyday? Who are the makers of today, and who shall we become tomorrow?

The Original Roller Skater

The aspirations that seem to be engrained into our soul are to finally climb out of the epic pits of insanity that we collectively call humanity. Nothing ever seems to make sense. In fact, it is impossible not to feel in RAGE!!!

We’ve always been left simply searching…

Perhaps you search the aisles of the school library for some sign of truth, or perhaps you are wise enough to search the labyrinth of light in the sky for a pattern or sign to guide your every wake. The riddle of the sphinx, has it ever been solved? Or is it simply that it’s question has never even been asked . . . ?

What is it about the night? What do we achieve when we dream? This is a journey by man, a mystery that never ceases to delight. Deep in our dreams, we have found our very own {MASTER MASON} waiting patiently for our arrival. Waiting for us to say we’ll stay.

But that would be like laying awake in the shadows you can actually see at night.
We can go about our day to day and never once seek the layers beneath the fragile surface of time and our past . . .

In fact, it continues to live on and on forever, like something eternally true.

Go about your day to day. Seek the seekers in the shadows.

Lets find the {MASTER MASON} that’s within us all…

Pharrell-Williams-BIG HAT- Daft Punk - Grammysjpg

 

Whether or not the vampire rumours are true (we’re still skeptical), we are definitely convinced that Pharrell Williams is one bad ass Billionaire Boy.

Check out this exclusive Pharrell Williams style poster from MoxyCreative! Only 100 available from their “ENSEMBLE: Style of Music” poster series. 

Lately, he’s really been rocking them ‘big ass’ hats.

I was just wearing a hat…Some people like it and some people are like ‘what is that?’ At the end of the day I feel good if I’m expressing myself.

[SOURCE]

His infamous Grammy hat auctioned to Arby’s for $44,000 (to charity), and has instilled the power it takes, and the power that comes from adorning your crown with an impeccable piece of headwear that lets everyone know what you are talking about.

What we are talking about are HATS! Hats. Hats. Hats. Can’t get enough of them these days . . . it seems that we as a whole haven’t been able to get enough of them those days, either. We’ve scoured the past for some of our favourite vintage style inspirations when it comes to the art of wearing a hat!!

E.O.F. SNAPSHOT OF THE DAY {May 23, 2013}

royal canadian mountie indian chief

Born out of a need for a national police force to implement the law in Canada’s newly acquired western territories, on  May 23 1873, the Parliament of Canada established a central police force who would be able to march across the land.  This sector has evolved into the red wearing, horse riding, yellow striped pant loving Royal Canadian Mounted Policemen we know today!

Commercial Break: I Married A Witch (1942)


Well well well, Halloweens nearly here.  Just around the corner!  And we feel as if we cannot get ahead on posting all the spooky ghoulish goodies that we’d love to bring to our readers.  Today we renounce the horror of Halloween and reflect on a time back in the 1940s, we know our retro readers will enjoy.


Starring a vivacious Veronica Lake as Jennifer, a 15th century Witch, brought into the present time with her father Daniel.  Both were imprisoned in a tree until a bolt of lightning freed the pair.  In an effort to exact revenge, Jennifer sets out in a diabolical plan to find the ancestors of the bigots who burnt her and her father centuries before.

High-jinks ensue in this romantic comedy, as Jennifer tracks down the puritan Jonathan Wooley (played by Fredric March), who is unhappily engaged at present.  The ambitious witch crafts a plan to steal and marry the man,  but the only way she can entice him to her eccentric ways is by using a Love Potion.


Tensions mounted on the set, and Lake had a rebellious steak.  Making a reputation for herself as being difficult to work with, sneaking weight’s under her dress when March was scripted to effortlessly carry her away.  And antics such as wedging her heel into the leading actors foot off camera to throw off her co-star.  Lake would fade into obscurity as the pictures evolved in the coming years, leaving behind a legacy of luscious side swept blonde hair, and a notorious attitude of a true Witch.

Music Minute: “Dear God” – XTC (1986)

Whenever we question our own reality and or think about our New Dracula Shades, this is one of the tunes that jumps into our Head’s and gets our toe’s tappin’.  We’re lover’s of the hippie glasses and  penchant for Hats, not to mention overall gentlemanly style of this English Invasion.

Not only is the message frank, but the statements linger and in a sea of pop act’s who sing about drivel, we find it very refreshing to find a group who aren’t afraid to say how they really feel!  Especially here at The Eye of Faith, a rebellious song questioning the existence of God is right up our alley!

From Swindon, England, XTC was active between 1977 and 2005. The band enjoyed some chart success, including the UK and Canadian hits you may recall; “Making Plans for Nigel” (1979) and “Senses Working Overtime” (1982)

First coming together in 1972, the core duo of Andy Partridge (guitars & vocals) and Colin Moulding (bass & vocals) went through many band names. Possible names being The Helium Kidz and Star Park, it wasn’t until 1976 the band settled on the name XTC.

With provoking lyrics like “Did you make disease, and the diamond blue? Did you make
mankind after we made you? And the Devil too!” it’s no wonder this New Wave group stirred up quite the sensation with the God fearing crowd worldwide.

“I won’t believe in heaven and hell. No saints, no sinners, no
devil as well. No pearly gates, no thorny crown. You’re always
letting us humans down. The wars you bring, the babes you
drown. Those lost at sea and never found, and it’s the same the
whole world ’round. The hurt I see helps to compound that
Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody’s unholy hoax,
and if you’re up there you’d perceive that my heart’s here upon
my sleeve. If there’s one thing I don’t believe in

it’s you….”
