the virgin suicides

Air popped up on my playlist this morning, which of course made me think of The Virgin Suicides. one of those movies that i love, but hardly ever watch. i think most girls my age can relate when i say this film had an impact on my teenage days (i was 16 when it came out). we were the same age as the lisbon chicks (but, hopefully, not as sheltered/melancholic/suicidal) and we all kind of had a thing for josh hartnett.

these are scans from the may 2000 issue of the face

the irresistible combination of the visuals and music of this film must have inspired thousands of girls to create flickr photo sets that are dreamy + ethereal and heavily photoshopped to look pastel + lovely. sophia coppola is their queen, as you can also pick up in the recent ad she did for miss dior cherie:

it’s all very pretty though, isn’t it?

deer tick – beautiful girls

i love deer tick, i think i have listened to art isn’t real (city of sin) about 200,000 times. this is a cover of sean kingston’s song beautiful girls.  i had heard some shitty tune of sean kingston’s on the radio and could not for the life of me get it out of my head. so for some reason i googled him (my answer to everything) and by way of the internet gods hey, presto, i found this little gem. oi, i love his voice.

woodstock 1969

40 years ago this weekend: love, peace, music, mud & tons of drugs. the photos, stories, videos etc make me nostalgic for something i could never have experienced myself (make sense?). i would have enjoyed seeing creedence clearwater revival, the who & other greats.  anyway, love me some hippies.  photos: life mag
