Gossip Gossip

You learn something new about yourself almost every day. Apparently I am a huge hip hop fan, because I cannot stop listening to Kanye West's new album. After a lifetime loyalty to punk/indie rock, this is kind of weird yet totally refreshing. Monster is my ultimate jam song of the moment, it's so catchy I can't even! I even found this great article called "Is Nicki Minaj a Feminist Icon?" that deconstructs her verse in Monster line by line. Definitely recommended reading.

Holy crap I have a skirt that looks almost exactly like yours! Do you remember that entry?! Doesn't surprise me that I'm way too amused by that because I've been under the "entertainment" of homework for a few hours now. :-/

I just read your article on the man repeller and I loved it. The fashion blogosphere needs more intelligent feminists like you. I am trying to push my blog (and esp my tumblr) more in that direction as well. Also, I adore your skirt.

I love the musical diversity. I think we often sky away from things we like in fear of being labeled part of a particular culture.

Okay, so first off I just want to say I am anonymous because I don't have a blogger account. I've been reading your blog for literally YEARS. I love your style and your choice in music too, I might add. I am spamming you this only because I think you might actually dig it. I randomly found this band on myspace and immediately thought of you? lol. I'm not a creep, I promise!

Nicki Minaj is cool, but Kanye West just freaks me out. I mean, her part is pretty freaking cool, but his lyrics and the video for the song are kind of disturbing.

I am right with you!--full-fledged indie girl until My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, now I can't get enough. Glad to know there are others out there! :)
