i am a biggg fan of courtney love and hole and everything she breathes basically (i love courtney love?) i almost exploded after the news of her beautiful comeback earlier this year- but I really exploded when i saw:
. this trailer for a short, bizarrely beautiful remake of Valley of the Dolls starring COURTNEY LOVE, lindsay lohan, miley cyrus and chloe sevigny, and paula deen called... Valley of the Doll Parts. your life will be forever changed.
. an interview on Style.com with Courtney in which she talks about cheese, Hole and fashion (!!) and contradicts herself (as in, a lot) but it's Courtney Love so the entire interview is crazy stupid cool beautiful- just read it.
lana del rey
. Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolet album which was released on Friday. The album is good and has a distinct sound but I can't talk much about it because there's so much going on that I'm confused about: possible romanticizing of of domestic violence, lana's denouncement of feminism (my current thoughts are super conflicted and sound a bit like: ASCAGHDRHUYTVKLIZSFBR) but instead here are some articles from people who seem to know what they're talking about:
(TW for rape in A Clockwork Orange / domestic violence) Album Review (Consequence of Sound)
Lana Del Rey Is More Interested In Space (Consequence of Sound)
(TW for domestic violence) Does Lana Del Rey's New Song Glorify Domestic Violence? (TIME)
if you have any idea what you think of all this (or even if you don't) please let me know in the comments.
company digital festival
If you're like me and possibly will never be able to afford tickets to a music festival until you're the ripe old age of 30 (SARCASM), and you've already accepted your fate as a perpetual hermit- then rejoice at the Company Magazine Digital Festival. Company is hosting an online festival that you can watch right. from. your. couch. I don't know many of the bands (The Vamps, Charli XCX, John Newman) - but I'm still pretty excited.
interesting article by Refinery 29 about cultural appropriation that covers all the bases (what it is, why it's a problem, what we can do to change it etc)
bib and tuck's beautiful new Youtube special with Jilly Hendrix asking New York fashuneestas about clothes, money, and dreams. i recommend ruthie and arabelle's- but they're so short that watching them all one after another will just make your life happier.
archy marshall's musings on his hometown + beautifully shot photos = tru luv
