Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before

I just want my life to look like a Smiths video - riding bicycles in a bleak part of town on a blustery day, wearing denim and t-shirts and trench coats with flat oxford shoes and trademark thick-framed glasses.

I'm so envious of the style(s)

omg this is definitely one of The Smiths best music videos!I love the denim jacket,and even more,all of the NHS glasses.I wonder how many of these mini Moz's really need glasses?

At work today
BOSS: Why are you wearing all black like a ninja?
ME: I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the outside.

I so want my life to be a Smiths song/video. Although that would be mightely depressing!

Olivia said...

Ahh such a good style! I appreciate your screen shots a lot!

Oh, The Smiths. The Moz apparently was an asshole and no one wanted to work with him nearing the end of The Smith's music career. However, I think most bands follow that pattern - asshole frontman. Ie. Pixies, apparently Kim and Frank Black hated each other.

Smiths + Bicycles = Serious Hipster Goodness. Enjoyed your blog, and thought you might enjoy mine, especially this little bit about Hipsters: The Card Game.

Actually, if there's an iconic Smiths video for those of us (guys) who can actually remember the 80's, it would be How Soon Is Now...because our teen hearts absolutely ached for the mysterious girl in the video. She essentially set the template for all of our (then) indie girl dreams...

The Smiths are still amazing to this day. If life was like a Smith's video, wouldn't it be grand?
