Well, this image by illustrator Gary Pullin comes close to representing an alternate answer to the "what is best in life" quandary that comes a little closer to my own point of view:
Death racing drag cars, badass skulls, and Vincent Price as Roderick Usher.
I feel that Price's Roderick Usher is a WAY under-appreciated style icon. That hair, that smoking jacket, that pained expression--it's ALL GOOD. There's something so New Romantic about that representation of the character. More spooky folks need to be taking a page from THIS dude's style book, let me just tell you.
