Meghan MacRae grew up in Vancouver, Canada, but spent many years living in the remote woods. Living in the shadow of grizzly bears, cougars and the other predators of the wilderness taught her about the dark side of nature, and taught her to accept her place in nature's order as their prey. She is co-founder of CVLT Nation webzine and clothing alongside her husband Sean.

CVLT Nation interviews Fred Grabosky of FTG Illustrations When did you first know that art was something you needed to create? It’s tough to pinpoint the exact day or moment, but I feel like I’ve always gravitated toward being an artist. Whether it be musically, with different drawing utensils, sculpting,

The anti-choice movement – aka pro-life aka anti-abortion – has a ton of ridiculous shit going on right now. Various groups in the US have it out for Planned Parenthood, because they see this organization not as one that provides much-needed women’s health support, contraceptives and legal abortions, but as

Text and Photos: Gemma Shaw   It’s finally that time of year again. What seems like an eternity is now upon us. Roadburn is a high point for many worshipers of the riff and its strange relations. A newly expanded 013 venue with more tickets meant more people adding to the unbridled

In 2 Corinthians 11:14, the Bible says that “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” That’s as far as the Bible goes in actually describing Satan’s physical appearance, as well as those of his demons, who are similarly described as in disguise as “apostles of Christ” and “servants of righteousness.” The

Enamel pins are the shit. They’re an easy way to DIY your clothing, unlike the laborious studding/patch-sewing/leather-painting of the past (and present). I’m not being facetious – even though I am a rabid studder/sewer/painter of clothing for my entire family, I also like to just pop a rad pin on my jacket
