just like the old days

as a tween / teen in south africa, growing up without the internet / blogs / tumblr meant gaining inspiration from sources you physically had to get your hands on. we used to peruse the paperweight shop and buy outdated issues of foreign magazines by the bag full. and then what would we do with all those mags? we’d cut them up and make collages in our school diaries. hell yes! i never wrote down a single task in my diary at school, it was all full of CK one ads (thanks kate moss). once my parents friends came to visit from america and some allure magazines got passed onto me – with actual perfume samples. my diary smelled great that year.

this got me thinking back to joseph & his amazing technicolour dreamcoat by andrew lloyd weber.  my parents had the soundtrack of an early nineties production (1991?) – the one with jason donovan as joseph… and as a youngster i used to sit in the lounge and sing along to it aaaaaall day. oh man! i kind of dislike musicals now (or at least, it takes a pretty great musical to keep me interested) – probably because i sang any dream will do until it was coming out of my ears.
