(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(!!)
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

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