This place feels so unfamiliar. And yet I know it well.

I think I used to belong here
But the only way I can tell
Is that I miss you still
And I cannot find you here
You left me tattered and torn
Just like that Sweet Spanish doll

I am in NYC once again. Moved into a new apartment in the West Village.
Working at my publications. In search of new prospects in all arenas of life.
Suffered a few personal disappointments in the past few months, but have flourished professionally. Now if I can only keep these two distinct realms from overlapping, I'll be on to something.

Current projects:

Ladyhawke for Interview
Primal Scream for Interview
Shepherd Fairey for Interview
HAIR Costume Designer Michael McDonald for Interview
Estelle for Paper Magazine
Hannah Marshall for Paper Magazine
Back to Noise for Paper Magazine

A Cramps Tribute (in negotiations with various publications)
Lise Sarfati (same)

In the coming weeks, I branch out to even more publications and begin PR writing work. I'm quite busy, but never satiated! I need to stop going out til 5 every night, but Manhattan nightlife is my favorite fix. Don't want it to turn into my "favorite mistake".

The Kills let us in on another inside joke.

Another gloriously grubby video from The Kills comes in the form of "Tape Song".

In a time where videos risk obsolescence, here is a band with the freedom to make as many as they want, solely because each clip is a scrappy lo-fi pisstake. This here is their most scattershot yet. I doubt Domino will spend more than $15,000 on all 5 Midnight Boom videos combined. Here's for wishing, praying, BEGGING that "Black Balloon" earns a noble treatment, because it's the album's (and possibly a career's) crowning pinnacle. Dark, mindful economy would suit it well.

Alison Mosshart's influence continues to serve me, and most of fashion kind, very well this year.
I thank fuck for her, for Shirley, for Kim Gordon, and for Patti Smith, all of whom I've recently learnt to appreciate in newly significant ways. If my raison d'etre is to forge the realms of alternative fashion and music -- and it is -- then these women are an integral part of why I do it, and why the world should take notice.

There is hope.

Two of my core inspirations, united.

Please take the time to check out Blackbook Magazine's terrific article, which chronicles the intersecting universes of dishabille iconique Kim Gordon and my punk rock Chanel savants of choice Rodarte.


It is a smashing read, and one that I can't help but wish I'd helped bring into fruition myself.

On Tonight's Agenda: Chaos

Anyone who is anyone in music, fashion, or "new media" (and apparently, those who aspire to be!) will be attending the Party of the Millenium tonight: Diesel XXX.

For me, it's an amusing turn of events. I've actually been booked for this party in Brooklyn since August. I happen to be on very good terms with Diesel's PR, and so along with my Fashion Week arrangements, was offered an early invite to this event. I said "sure, why not?" This discourse, of course, all commenced long before any inkling of its eventual Magnitude was made evident. Then, I heard M.I.A. was playing. And Hot Chip. Cool. And N.E.R.D. Errm, okay. Then, Franz Ferdinand! OHMIGOD!

Naturally, there was a downside to all this. This dishy avalanche of news was concurrently made privy to the general public, along with the announcement that Diesel "fans" could take part if they scuttled on down to select locations to score tickets. Wonderful.

Long story short, the reality is that what once seemed to be an industry-only event is open to any Joe or Jane willing to jump through the hoops (read: SPEND) to get tickets. That's fine, I suppose. I'm not one to guard the Velvet Rope - provided you look, sound, and smell good. :p

As long as my experience isn't ruined by the typical concert yobs, it should still make for a fun night. I personally am eager for FF, M.I.A., and, if the rumors deliver, Britney!

Ostensibly, this is what the event schedule looks like:

09:00 pm - Roll up roll up for xXx New York is joining the party Grand Opening
Jugglers, Contortionists, Fire Eaters and Strong Men perform to Dj Pelle of The Hives.
10:45 pm - Hot Chip vs Chaka Khan live mash up
One of the greatest figures in disco all time meets pure cool eccentric.
11:45 pm - Franz Ferdinand vs T.I. live mash up
Ultimate rappers of the moment meets scottish crazed indie cool.
01:00 am - M.I.A. vs N.E.R.D live mash up
The ultimate mash up.

I'm thinking at 1:50am, Brit Brit will make a cameo and then the evening will drunkenly conclude. As such, I am nearly guaranteed to spend tomorrow occupying a piercing hangover and Dario Argento trilogies from the comfort of my own bed. Enticing prospects.
