w.e.i.r.d.o| karaoke special

Just to let you know that I'll be going on hiatus for a few weeks. Time to curl up within my own inner quirkiness, setting my mind and my spirit away from physical spaces, crowded commuting, meaningless words, meaningless human detours, day jobs, 70 year old whores who wear orthopedic shoes, hipster kids on synth drugs who buy 9.95 ready to wear and vintage finds, 50 year old nymphos drinking cocktails at 12 p.m., romantic hobos, minor criminals, politicians and suburban housewifes with small children. Everything seems rather distant, I'm afraid. I am at a position where I am not able to connect to anything right now. I feel rather out of touch and I lack empathy towards others which is an awful thing to feel. Power, Corruption and Lies.
This state of things. Of a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat sound bytes. Of reading about the atrocities happening in Gaza, the ebola virus epidemics,debt, fraud, darknet psycho shit, poverty, anxiety and fear mixed with Beyonce's eminent divorce and what to wear next season (I solemnly commit to buy, and I bow my head in reverence of the almighty gods of online retailing). Folks are strange these days. This state of things is rather confusing and distracting from what really matters. Get lost. Get found. Get drowned. Save your psycho hospital bracelet next to your other bracelets. Have a burrito, smoke cigs, shout at the wind, walk by the shore,swim until you are tired  instead. It's all romantic garbage anyway. Dance along. And these plastic tides are safe. Ride along and tape this.

The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth . The 7 doesn't take anything at face value - it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths.

karaoke wednesday | holy wave

 Got hooked. Tremendously hooked on  Holy Wave. Their music is like pure magic. 

I've been drawn to my main love affair once again, which is music. I mean, fashion has become gradually very boring and secondary to me. It all comes across as too similar one way or another.  
What also bothers me in fascis..sorry, fashion, is the lack of authenticity I suppose. Even what comes across as genuine is really overly produced, and staged up and therefore it becomes immediately uninteresting and unappealing. At least to me. 
I just don't dig the trends, the "luxe", the brands. It's a bit nerve wrecking actually. The few things I have bought in the last months were vintage and thrift/second hand finds.I suppose you get different priorities and interests as time passes by. And moons go by. Anyway, it's karaoke Wednesday. Jam along. From train stop, to train stop.

Despite all of the things associated to 9 1/2 Weeks, Kim Basinger had an amazing wardrobe in that movie. And she looked absolutely stunning. 9 1/2 Weeks (1986)

This song has been on my head. From chamber, to chamber. From light, to dark.


Remember that George Constanza quote: I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable. ? Well, I have an inner Constanza (..creeps); so I got myself a black velvet blazer. Because I'm classy like that. Well, sort of.
The good thing about being a hoarder, is that my 1998 pair of Gazelle's are up and running. Well, sort of. This is how we rolled in the late 90s. Closet safari.Closet archeology. This reminded of quite possibly the coolest music show back in the day, called Alternative Nation.This video was on rotation pretty much every week. From 90s Sweden with love, Bob Hund.
Bob Hund - Istället för Musik Förvirring (1996) Rough translation of the chorus : "Instead of music : confusion".Yeah.. Even back then I was a weirdo.
Tried to get a photo of the super moon with my phone and it looks like Saturn. Which is cool. Sort of.

Wearing black over grey over navy all the time gets on my nerves. Well, sort of. I like these linen 90s boxy tees a lot. They are easy to wear and the colors are really tight.

Rescued: sweetest little 70s lava decorative dish. It's actually part of a set of three dishes, but I just took a photo of this one in particular because the color combination is so delightful.

How many times did you read "sort of" in this post?
