As summer 2021 heats up, I have a fiery announcement… I have a web television show coming out August 1, on The Satanic Temple TV

“Satanic Show + Tell” was created by me and my co-host Dr. John Skutlin, and produced by William Morrison (of Ogre / Skinny Puppy, and executive producer of TSTTV).

In each episode of “Satanic Show + Tell,” John and I interview notable guests about their rare Satanic objects. We hold in-depth discussions about their most delightfully devilish possessions, from Devilman guitars to pentagram jewelry.

We’re thrilled to the bones to share our first SS+T episode with you…. starring Evan Michelson, who you may know from the Discovery / Science Channel TV program, “Oddities!” 

For a sneak peek, see our Satanic Show + Tell intro teaser here. (Music by GPK Gothique Prince Ken.) Episode 1 comes out August 1, 2021.

John, William and I have been having a hell of a time filming “Satanic Show + Tell” remotely over the past months, via Zoom. (I even created a kawaii Satan hand-puppet for Evan’s episode!)

We though the format of the program was particularly apt for these times, as it lets us connect with likeminded friends worldwide, and get an inside peek at their darkest collections.

Here’s a screencap from our premiere episode with Evan Michelson (@evanobscura Instagram).

She gives us a tour of her home’s cabinet of curiosities, and tells the fascinating tales behind her Satanic collectibles — such as this scowling antique puppet. We also hear about her new oddities store, Obscura West in Lambertsville, NJ, which I can’t wait to visit.

Hail to everyone who made Satanic Show + Tell possible, and for your kind support in getting the word out! 

To celebrate the big news, I thought I’d release some bonus photos taken during my Millie Magazine shoot.

We had fun shooting in Chinatown Vancouver. I’m wearing a pink Mongolian wool coat by Skandinavik Fur (the sheep are only sheared and not harmed), and pumpkin-faced stockings by UK Tights.

My makeup for the shoot was by my longtime collaborator, Artist Jennifer Little — we’ve worked together on several magazine covers! Much of my makeup, including the mascara, brow pomade and liquid lipstick, is by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

My Harajuku-Goth hair is by Chad Mitchell Evans of BlameChad, who is brilliant with color and alternative styling.

If I can’t be in Asia anytime soon, I can at least hang out with the lion guardians of Vancouver, BC’s Chinatown. These two white stone lion statues flank either side of the Millennium Gate.

There’s a large Asian population in Vancouver, so you’ll find plenty of kawaii pop culture around the city, including this colorful wall art.

Honored to have Evan Michelson be our very first guest! You may remember that I appeared on an Oddities episode with her, and we were in Mexico together on a Day of the Dead trip — where I found these Mexican demon and skull masks above.

I’ve attended many of The Satanic Estate’s events, which coincide with TST’s holidays such as Hexennacht. This unique platform lets you see a live performance (a Michelle Remembers parody reading, a Satanic Chef cooking demo, a history talk), and interact with others in the web chat and on-camera.

The caretakers of The Estate / Satanic Temple Virtual Headquarters also launched a podcast called Tea Room Dialogues.
