Marc Bolan & T-Rex - The Slider (1972)

The cover was shot by Ringo Starr. The band went from Folk to Glam Rock - but dont let that turn you off...

You know when you find one of those records that you can play over and over again in a dark room with a lava lamp, kicking and thrusting away on your bed with all your friends. This is one of them.

Light a candle, keep the curtains open for everyone to see, and when your sad, just slide.

"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.."

Call me cliche for quoting Coco, but Daisy Lowe to me is just that; Different, Irreplaceable.
I admit its been awhile since ive google this beauty, but tonight when I did, I was not dissapointed.
She was a first love of mine and hence, I wanted to share....

Meanwhile, Cherry Red or White Docs please? Im not picky and my birthday is awfully close...

Wanderer's Wandering Daughter

Here is a piece by our good friend Marianne Moore, Three Fifty-Four who will be writing some little pieces for us here and there, since our own literacy skills are questionnable. Hopefully it will make you feel as lovely as we did reading it. Enjoy.

Woolen vested and black stockinged, she slipped out her front door without anyone noticing. Of course, no one had lived with her to notice for almost a year now. That didn't stop her from sneaking in when she got home late, or rolling her ciggarettes in a locked bathroom and smoking them beside the red-brick pillar behind her apartment block.

Where she was going on this particular outing, nobody properly knew.

Where she ended up, however, was a botanical garden, wandering about in the light rain and taking pictures of twisted trees and fragmented flowers. Her photography skills were not brilliant, but then again neither was the beauty of the trees or the fragrance of the flowers. And so she wandered.

Past a thousand crying Twiggys and dozens of standstone walls, past the sheltered displays and the books - so many books - ordered and shelved. And nothing of particular interest happened to this girl today, just like nothing of particular interest happens to you or me. This girl is, indeed, all of us. Wandering alone, not quite brilliant; "I feel some faith in that cosmic link." Maybe that girl snuck in, recovered some wine from its usual hiding place and started a blog of all the things that made her happy.

Even if Marla didn't really exist.

Femme Fatale of the Day - Mathilda

"I am writing here the name of a girl in my class that makes me sick. If things get hot, she'll take the heat."
Because who doesn't love a badass little girl with a Beretta 92FS?

"ruddy mysterious…"

Series 4, get on it, it'll have you laughing for hours...

Macaulay Culkin where did you go

Married to a Beatnik

Wild at Heart

Dazed and Confused showcases the lovely Abbey Lee (who will no doubt be frequently populating these posts) in a homage to the one and only Where the Wild Things Are. I'd like to go for a run through the forest now. "I have a sadness shield that keeps out all the sadness, and it's big enough for all of us." Max.
