What Are You Wearing ... Who Are You Listening To? ... NEW YORK ... #7


  
   Christina, 18
   (taken on St Marks Place on the Sunday morning ... a nice sunny
   autumn day. funny thing was I had approached St Marks from the
   opposite side and didn't realise I was there because I was entering
   from the bottom of the street (and for some reason I thought it was
   a dead end street and you couldn't even enter from another side?!)
   anyway within a second I realised where I was. saw Christina and 
   went on over. soon as I saw her I thought you'd like her Marlena(!!)



   shirt good-will
   trousers:  from Hot Topic where I work
   jacket:  thrift store
   boots:  from a thrift store round here called NO RELATION
   bracelets:  the one with the not so pointy spikes I made ... the
   other I got from Hot Topic. the bondage bracelet I got from a
   thrift store - which is kinda weird because it was used(!) but
   whatever ... it looks cool!
   arm warmers:  this one (above left) I don't remember where
   I got it from and this one (right) was like a sock ... I cut it out
  
   style inspiration:  I don't really know ... I just wear what I like
   I guess. I don't really like ... look to other people

   last song you listened to:  Sex Pistols - Anarchy In The UK 
   because it was playing in Search and Destroy (good answer
   but I wondered what the last song she purposely listened to
   was) ... probably Saturday Night by the Misfits because it's
   been stuck in my head all week.
   last album you bought:  something by Bad Brains, I can't remember
   last gig you saw:  oh my god, I haven't been to a concert in forever
   I think it was Green Day when I was like 13!! in Connecticut. they
   were my favourite band when I was younger but not anymore!!

   side note> during the interview, Christina told me she had cut her
   own hair!!

What Are You Wearing ... Who Are You Listening To? ... NEW YORK ... #6




   Nikolai, 31
   (1. how cool is this dude. exactly. and 2. yes finally a picture of a guy)

   this was taken on the saturday morning ... between 9-10 ... around 5th
   avenue on my way to the apple store (I was having a problem with my
   mac importing pictures from flickr) ... very cool looking store but very
   rude guy serving me. it was a pretty cold morning, probably 10 degrees
   colder than the day before. so cold, that walking down the streets I could
   kind of envisage what it must be like to be there in the winter. I didn't
   realise before I left how much colder it was. hence still wearing my knee
   length dickie style shorts and 'Unbroken meat is murder  hoodie. and why
   mid-conversation Nikolai said to me (in an american accent don't forget)
   'I do believe your lip is bleeding from the cold' - making it the singular 
   most coolest thing I heard my whole trip there.

   jacket all saints
   sweater:  asos
   suspenders:  zara
   jeans:  all saints
   boots:  all saints
   cap:  new york hat company

   style inspiration:  I forgot to ask this!! yes.I know. I went straight to
   'last song you listened to. it's the first time I've ever missed a question
   out. kinda bummed cause I'd like to have known his answer. how could
   this have happened? I'll put it down to a/the cold ... b/general tiredness
   from non-stop walking and constant worrying the moz gigs would be
   cancelled ... and c/just the shock of finally getting a cool dude for this
   feature.

   last song you listened to: (right before I stopped him!) Johnny Cash 
   The Fourth Man In The Fire 
   last album you bought: Johnny Cash box set - Unearthed (where the
   above song is from)
   last gig you saw:  The XX at Terminal 5

EBAY I LOVE THEE.


   EBAY I LOVE THEE.
   I am now the proud owner of these 'Smiths badges.
   yes 2 the same (I like to have spares!) after I won the first
   I saw the same one from someone else. it was a bidding war
   between Smiths fans. of course I was victorious. I had to
   have them. definitely my favourite Smiths badges I have.

   yes I paid £7.50 for a badge.
   yes I paid £10.50 for a badge.

   but to be more specific ...
   ORIGINAL SMITHS BADGES FROM THE 1980's
   yes that alters it a bit doesn't it.

   let's be reminded of the wondorous-ness of this band



   YES EXACTLY.
   YES EXACTLY.

   the second seller said this about the badge:

   I GOT THE BADGE AS A PROMO ITEM SOMETIME IN THE
   LATE 1980s WHEN I WORKED IN THE REVOLVER RECORDS
   SHOP IN BIRMINGHAM

   very interesting. from the font/colours I'd say they are definitely
   1985 MEAT IS MURDER period.

   would morrissey approve? most definitely.
   young moz was a fervent badge wearer and clearly understood
   their importance.

   ps. on the subject of badges - I need this one so bad.
