My selfie game was weak this year. These are pretty much the only selfies I took in 2013 that don’t involve my cat.

Fucking overwhelming looking at these.

The Stream episode is up online now. If you just want to see yours truly awkwardly ramble to a webcam, fast-forward to @11:38. The comments on YouTube are unbearable as usual, but the discussions on the Stream website are quite respectful and overall quite strong. Really great to hear such a variety of voices. Particularly enamored with Sonny Singh around 17:30 - but no surprise there, I fell in love with his article last summer re: Jean Paul Gauthier and turbans on the runway.

“at the end of the day, dressing for your job vs. dressing yourself is nothing to lose sleep over. but i’d be lying if i said it’s not something i think about before i get dressed in the morning to go to work. everyone does it to some extent, but i’m more interested in tackling the shift of someone who plays with fashion and how it relates to their (gender, sexual, class or political) identity, and how they feel they should dress depending on their line of work… once a wierdo, always a wierdo. and if fashion was the one way you feel like you can express that wierdness, it can feel wrong to have it taken away from you… even if you’re the person taking it away, to a certain extent.”

new post up at the blog, where i scratch the surface of what it’s like for queers and wierdos to change the way they dress for their jobs. i quote badasses like dean spade and jenna b.

quick outfit post! bought this dress for 5 bucks in october but just got around to mending it and added buttons. also i wish i could go outside in these heels but i’ll be wearing big clunky sorels. FAUX GLAMOUR.

Vampyros Lesbos


when i was at a ghost bees show in sept 08 they asked what people’s favourite vampire movies were and i was the only one who yelled out, loudly and clearly, “VAMPYROS LESBOS.” they looked really confused, and asked me to repeat it. “it has an awesome soundtrack, too,” i added sheepishly. everybody thought i was a creep, including the cute new friend i had just made. but she still sends me awesome mix tapes, so it’s okay.
