I also just heard that it's 5 years today since Ari Up died.  It's bonkers how fucking quickly time goes by - I thought it was a year ago, maybe two.  Honestly.

She was so cool and so beautiful and she gave precisely no fucks.

After reading Viv Albertine's utterly brilliant memoir (several times) I actually feel kind of like I know them all.  I cannot recommend that book enough.


I love this.

What she wants to be is a modern girl.

I am trying to have a productive week.  I am weirdly obsessed with this song.

A subtle form of compliment.

Today I am mostly trying to channel this song.

I only just found out today that the 'Talky Bit' - or Victorian-style rap, as I like to think of it - is actually from a poem by Edith Sitwell.  How I never knew this wonderful fact before is beyond me.

Hot as any Hottentot and not the goods for me...

"Your Memories on Facebook"

Eleanor, we care about you and the memories that you share here. We thought that you'd like to look back on this post from 1 year ago.

This was at the top of my Facebook feed this morning.  Below it was a photograph taken during one of the worst weeks of my life.

Doesn't look it, does it?  I can't believe it was a year ago.  Facebook is weird.
