DINOSAURUXIA had a gig at Korjaamo. It was awesome, I'll put the greatest show pictures ever soon up, they had really good visuals thanks to the well, don't know. It came as surprise and a really really nice one. You should've been there! I'm wearing a customized leather vest, I found a Canadian currency from 1979 inside it. Leather is total bitch to sew, took me like five The Smiths cds to get it done. And the sad part is it's not even that great and lame twentysomethings mocked it at an afterparty. Anyways, my newest love is that skeleton dinosaur that shines in the dark! Total craziness, pure love! I was also wearing a denim mini-skirt but I kinda ripped it, that's why I didn't do holiday pastries this year. Or holidays. Everybody's a nobody in a bikini...
Oh, and that's a bird in my hair.

"THE BEAST NEEDS TO BE CONTROLLED
WHERE AM I ?
I AM WRITING. I WILL COME OUT TO PLAY WHEN THERE ARE MORE THINGS TO HEAR , SEE AND SAY.
FOR NOW I STEAL A TINY MOMENT TO REFLECT A LITTLE.
MAKING AN ALBUM IS DISORIENTATING ,MESSY, LOVELY.
THERE IS A CALM AND SOBRIETY REQUIRED. FINISHING THINK OF ENGLAND ON A THURSDAY THEN RELEASING IT ON A FRIDAY WAS A TESTIMENT TO THE POWER OF INDEPENDENCE AND RESTRAINT. LETTING SOMETHING GO UNTESTED. BLIND FAITH AND ALL THAT. MAYBE JUST IMPATIENCE.
I FEEL THERE IS DEEP TRANSFORMATION IN WHAT I AM DOING. THE BEAST NEEDS TO BE CONTROLLED AND IN TIME I WILL BE THANKFUL FOR IT.
SOMETIMES I LOOK AT IT ALL IN WONDER. SOMETIMES I LOOK INTO THE WINDOW AND EVERYTHING IS BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION. I EXPLODE INTO A BILLION OVERSENSITIVE SELF AWARE PIECES. I AM ANGRY, I HATE AND THEN I FORGET. WHAT NONSENSE.
I FIGURE IF I JUST KEEP MOVING DOWN THE STREET AND DONT LOOK INTO THE WINDOWS THINGS WILL BE DONE AND LIFE WILL MOVE FORWARD.
THERE IS NO OTHER WAY FOR ME.
I WANT TO BE OLD AND WISE AND RELAXED ABOUT FUCKING UP.
I WANT TO ENJOY FUCKING UP.
UNTIL THEN I WILL HAVE TO FEED AN INFANTILE DESIRE TO BE LOVED AND DO "IMPORTANT" THINGS.
I WISH SOMETIMES I WANTED TO DEVOTE MY LIFE TO CHARITY BUT HUMANS ARE NOT REPAIRABLE AND I AM TOO WEAK AND DISTRACTED TO HELP . I AM JUST HERE TO INTERPRET AND POINT FINGERS. END OF STORY.
ON A POSITIVE NOTE, I DISCOVERED SOMEONE HAS MADE A FEDERICO FELLINI MYSPACE SITE. HUNDREDS OF ADORABLE SNAPSHOTS AND QUOTES .
PLEASE GO AND LOOK AT A TRUE VISCERAL UNCOMPROMISING CREATOR.
HE WAS A TRASHY MAN. LIVING, SHITTING, LOVING, SHOWING.
I TAKE GREAT COMFORT IN SEEING HIS FILMS. I SEE A BIT OF HIM IN US.
LIKE HIM , IAMX IS NOT GLAM. IAMX IS CIRCUS.
IT'S SOMETIMES EASY TO FORGET."

Dazed & Confused January 2009: The Youth Issue By Hedi Slimane.
I never knew These New Puritans looked like this, I just used to play their debut in repeat earlier this year because it's kinda genius.

Remember this? I loved this issue of W so much, as you can see.
Yesterday was super fun, with lots of free food, alcohol and super nice, real, down to earth people. I wish I had energy for tonight, because I already have a expensive ticket but it's worth nothing if you don't have friends to share it with. It's going to be another of those I'd-rather-dance-with-you-than-talk-with-you nights. Well, what do you want to hear, I bought a black, long and very minimalistic Sisley blazer for 2.50 and I'm going to pretend it's Jil Sander SS09. I also got a white, frilly shirt, I'm going to pretend it's cDg or something Japanese.
Today I walked past a gallery and it had a piece of beautiful art that spoke to me. Looking through a window, it said, I WILL NEVER BE LIKE YOU. You have no idea how happy it made me! I'll rather enjoy my free food, nice people and cheap thrills, thank you. You can have your latest... whatever you like. If I won't look down on you I hope you won't look down on me. Unless you're helping me up, ha ha.

Talking about magazines...yesterday I found a stack of late 80s early 90s American Vogues for 20 cents each. Now I get what supermodels are all about...or maybe Anna just likes to repeat his girls, like Trentini with her 11-times-a-row appearance. I'm also dead broke.....I today I found more magazines with iconic stuff and had to leave it on reserve because, hey, sometimes you're just short of....60 cents. Next week I'm going to get Acne Paper and 032c if it has arrived. I've also got to do something with my hair...and post about Natalia Brilli and Antti Asplund and Acne's BLOCK shoes and and and the olives taste the same, apple juice won't stain, this weeks playlist.

Tate Liverpool, my faux fur, George W. & feather headband from Primark, Halloween in England, dressing up as "that huge black character from Moomins" in Daniel Palillo dress, Soft Toy Emergency's energetic live shows, seeing Noah & The Whale from back, Bumpers, no coat checks, someone's apartment, nervous breakdown & opening up, workshops, all the people, self-cleaning toilets, too much double espressos, missing Andy Warhols, drunk writing, listening to Wolfgang Flur reading his book while everyone else was getting to know each other BUT FUCKING KRAFTWERK BITCHES, Jackson Pollocks, boys from Morrissey's songs and every little single detail you always tend to forget. I never thought, I didn't think twice.
Though I'm having fun at home too. I also tend to fall asleep in my classes, and it's not because of the subjects. I don't know...it just happens, sometimes I go to celebrate Britney's new album...and sometimes I wake up and go "AreyoutalkingaboutDerekJarman?" in my Philosophy course. I need to pick my outfit for tomorrow's Circus. Read history books, finish Palahniuks, watch some Pet Shop Boys music videos...I need to wake up and have a hangover. Listen to Elliott Smith, film shadowplays, go to Canary Islands or something. That kind of things anyways.
