you do realise he's been dead for over a decade, right?

I think she has realized so anonymous, it doesn't make him less interesting even so. Stop bitching. I think he's aweinspiring, and slightly scary, but gives us a certain different view on fashion.

anonymous: what's that got to do with anything? yes of course i know, half the blitz kids died of aids, but that doesnt make it illegal to post pictures of them does it.

emilie: word

firstly, anything i say now will automatically sound defensive or bitchy. secondly, i wasn't trying to be bitchy. possibly pretencious, not bitchy.
i just found the description to be a bit unaware. i certainly wasn't trying to negate bowery's position as an artist or interesting person (historically, being dead makes him more interesting). possibly,because i find the whole cultural context around bowery far more interesting than anything he ever wore or did, i think the fact that he died have everything to do with it. i realize not everyone has to think that (not bitchy, see). it was just a comment. that i happen to think was relevant.

gah cr3pppy fuck

Arthur said...

oh, nice post!

kristina: it's more the other way around. leigh bowery influenced boy george heavily, i think.

maja casablancas said...

anonymous: ok then, i still think its kinda rude to suggest i wouldnt know he's dead, but i get your point.

kristina: yeah, but like arthur said its more the other way around

miriam: well thats intelligent

arthur: thnx :-)

kristina said...

oh..
i didn't know about leigh, so i didn't know he influenced Boy George :P
