Men have been and are responsible, as a gender, for some wholly awful shit. War, famine, pestilence, religion, the unbearable existence of Adam Sandler films. We are often the worst that humanity has to offer–and as someone who inhabited a degree program in history for four years I’m qualified to say that most of recorded human behaviour is a litany of our massive fuckupery. I’m not being facetious here either, I’m dead serious. We can be, and often are, awful. … →
Stumbled across an article by Drew Droege who has been impersonating Chloe Sevigny since 2002. I’ve often wondered what the big deal is with fashion designers being so in love with her, but it’s probably because she’s willing to wear pretty much anything and she goes out a lot so their crazy outfits get seen on the pages of ‘In Touch’.

If you’ve been paying attention you’d know that this challenge has affected me in other areas of my life that I didn’t necessarily expect. As last week’s clip showed, I’m no longer as dependent on cosmetics as I used to be. My overall commitment to my outward appearance has diminished to what I hope is the benefit of my emotional well-being. But life has a way of laughing at our plans, and just as I was relishing my minimalist future … →
Just in case you’re wondering what to wear when the apocalypse comes, might I suggest this little number. An adult onesie says to the world “I’ve stopped caring, and I’m proud of it. Now could someone please pass the deep-fried anythings?”
