I would watch this video once a day in 2009. I could not get enough. When DAISY von FURTH says, "We're used to shopping in thrift stores, so it's like, even to us, it's like, to pay $60 for something...that's, like, the most we're ever going to pay," I remember initially thinking...this woman says "like" a lot..but aloud, by myself, in my bedroom, I said, "Daisy, you speak my language."
Watching this now reminds me of how things have really never changed in the 21st century. For the last 20 years, pop culture seemingly repeats, and repeats, and repeats itself, whether in terms of music, fashion, art...etc. I just happen to be interested in the fashion portion of our culture. So, look at the trends in this video. I can't decide whether it has actually taken this long for the runway of 1994 to hit the streets of 2012, or if we are all just blindly scraping our fingernails down the mid/late 1990s wall, in hopes to find our generation's 21st century voice/originality. It's a toss up between what we are told is fashionably trendy and the relevance factor. Because really what defines relevance these days? What makes something relevant? The only viable answer, and yes, obviously so, is you and the rapidly growing nature of technology. Anyone can make anything relevant. And doesn't that just feel so shitty and subordinate? My thoughts, ideas and opinions are lumped-in with the millions of other people broadcasting the same things through social media engines and websites. But, I suppose if there are other human beings out there that I respect and feel inspired by, it's not so bleak that we are all able to find one another. Well, fuck. I'm blogging...so *yawn*. I am apart of this. I could go on and on, but will cease this rant since...I...could...literally...go...on...for...decades. blah. Let's be original together in ways that have never been explored, ok? ok. thanks.
In the meantime....read this interview with DAISY von FURTH.

Just for the record, I am not depressed, in fact I am abnormally happy at the moment. But I was messaged by my dear long time friend, SARAH SLATER (founder of Denver's D.I.Y., feminist art and music collective TITWRENCH) and memories of a conversation we had a few years ago at Rhinoceropolis flooded my head. She had a bunch of zine's that she was carrying around with her, one of which had an image of Diamanda Galas on its' cover. We talked for a long time about her music, writing, art etc and so I thought it fitting to share her intense glare and mesmerizing screams with you all.

Chicago Street Style. She told me that it was found at an actual vintage store in Arkansas, for a measly $120 (holy whoa...steal). She is super sweet, fashionable and I hope to run into her/vintage pick/buy a camper and take this on the road with her soon. xo.

I decided to listen to an øøøld but güüüd playlist I made years ago, what with my near brush with death recently due to musical starvation and all. The last song by Trisome 21 is on this mix and so I decided to backflip into the youtube quicksand. ënjøï, xo. xo. ox. PS THIS IS VERY SLOPPY....PARDON, PLEASE, AND thanksss.
