This just don’t stop being funny, badly taxidermied animals by people who clearly never saw even a picture or a bad drawing of the species.

In case you don’t have a small fortune to buy the silver version, this is the D.I.Y. solution, made of leather and brass rings… and I kind of like it… But I would still very much like the Delettrez piece!
I’m so proud of my Salvation Army leather jacket collection! This black one is the oldest. At least in my closet. Love the bat-wing sleeves and the two-button collar. 45 kr. (8.33 USD)
The red one has got an amazing tuxedo-like closure. Sort of a Sonny Crockett meets Biker With A Thing For Red jacket. 50 kr. (9.26 USD)
The brown one is newly purchased and still got that smell of dead-cat-meets-old-lady-and-they-sit-on-the-jacket-playing-bridge-with-stinky-old-playing-cards-and-smoke-and-sweat-meat-like-juices-into-it. In this case: thank God for germ killing Rodalon!
The shoulder pads are huge. And Iove the triangular shapes of the design. 90 kr. (16.67 USD)
And paisley printed lining! This jacket is perfect in every way.
Today I became a fan of both Howie Good and Mia Christopher. Howie for writing the clever words of “My Heart Draws a Rough Map” and Mia for doing the beautiful illustrations. Chapter 8 left me speechless (well, I wasn’t talking to anyone, but my mind became still) and chapter 6 is also great. What I’m trying to say is: just read the whole thing – it’s free and it’s right here.
Thank you thank you thank you Vice for introducing the genre cold wave to me a few moths ago. I’m the Line with the comment “This is better than chocolate. And sex. And chocolate covered sex” at your download site. I love the 30 minutes of hot, hot, hot cold wave – well almost. Actually, I don’t like the first track, but from 5:05 the mix is sweeter than sweet. This track by cold wave wonder kids Solid Space (who must be my parents age by now and only released one LP in 1982) is a part of the mix and “Destination Moon” is close to being one of the most perfect songs ever made if you ask me. Short and sweet, simple and beautiful.
In my quest for more great music I was thrilled to discover the new Vice online music player with all sorts of treats selected by the Vice guys or girls or monkeys or whoever runs that place. I must say – your music taste is impeccable. So far Assassins 88 (very Wavves like, but still good) and Beak has been great encounters. If you wanna geek out on more cold wave in particular, I recommend following this blog and listen to a weekly show on East Village Radio called Minimal Wave.
Everybody dance now! Or sit and stare out the window. As long as you do both once in a while.
