(late post, I know)
But regarding Shakespears Sister (intentionally misspelled): was I really the only one who genuinely liked them? I know I tend to have weird taste in music and…well, things–but I thought this was not so weird. “Stay?” “Hello?” Nobody? Not even those two popular ones? The music video for “Stay” was also pretty good (taking into consideration the weirdness of my taste, as well as the fact that it is older than my favorite T-shirt [which is pretty damn old]). The two “sisters” were also very attractive–maybe that helps spark some phallocentric memories? (Well, I thought they were particularly attractive during my goth phase, yes, but again: I did not think this was so weird and so I do not feel bad for still considering them exceptionally attractive). Just wondering. I am feeling very nostalgic and goth-y tonight (maybe a reaction to not getting a single ray of sunshine in this farce of a summer) and have also been getting crap about liking them lately. Well, screw it: I love them!
***EDIT: I might as well take this one step further and admit that I ended the Shakespears Sister portion of the night and am listening to Wolfsheim’s No Happy View at the moment. Cans… Worms… Eyeliner… everywhere.
P.S.: in happier news: Spook Country is fucking fantastic thus far (well, if you’re into the whole (virtual) space effacing time in contemporary capitalism argument, at least). I will write something of more substance tomorrow. Haven’t had enough time to really make a dent yet.
***EDIT 2: found “Stay” on youtube (evidently there are some people who DO like them). Makes me want to cry. Not sure why. Not a very critical attitude/intelligent reaction, I know. Old memories.
***EDIT3: I might as well put up “Hello” as well.
