It's been one of those weeks. I've literally had zero time to sit down and do a post. What with the catching up from Vacation and with preparing for family coming to visit it's been a bit tough.
There has been some fun thrown in the mix as well, last Sunday I got to spent the day in San Francisco with Kathy of 5-6-7-8. We wandered a bit around Golden Gate park, visited the California Academy of Sciences, and ventured off to view the Golden Gate Bridge. Kathy is amazingly sweet and the whole day was a lot of fun- albeit chilly! I will post some pictures soon, but as of yet I haven't uploaded most of them from my camera, and I do not have any outfit posts to share either, but there is this...
Back in the days of high school I was really really into Britpop/rock. Not just Blur and Elastica, but anything to do with the British Invasions of the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's from -The Who to Sweet, to The Stone Roses. It was a bit much really. I cut my hair short and ran around the city in mini dresses and patent knee boots. I also began collecting records and posters and books, one of which is this amazing gem.
The book has articles on Mod fashion, music, hair styling, and the dance hall and drug culture. Pretty interesting that the idea of 'youth culture' was sort of this unheard of phenomena at the time. The interviews with the 'Mods' in the book are interesting as well- just to get the viewpoint/ experiences of young people living in that time.
And, now I am reminded of that Pixies song ' subbacultcha'.
Did any of you belong to a sort of subculture group/clique in high school? Goth, Punk, Prep?
I'm curious to know.
