++I'd prepped a few thoughts for this morning about The Punk Singer docu and Kathleen Hanna, but decided that I've already written waay too much about the esteemed Ms. Hanna in the past. Instead, I'm posting this beautiful song by Jolie Holland who I remember writing about many lifetimes ago when we were both young. Viva regional accents and pronounciations.
This video is by the exuberant Sini Anderson, who also directed The Punk Singer and makes me smile.
Make more music Jolie Holland!
++Well, for whatever reason, I've been super into fashion the past week or so, and have been getting lost in the slideshows of street looks on The Cut. Even though I wouldn't wear half the things the women in Paris are wearing I admire their flamboyant use of color. Then this picture struck me for some reason..:
..not exactly sure why. Sometimes wearing one solid color from head to toe makes more of statement than a million hamburger tee shirts. There's just something about his shock of white hair, easy gait and indecipherable facial expression that's just... cool. He's so lost in his music, too. You could almost Photoshop his figure out of this background and into the middle of, say an African safari, and he'd still be obliviously absorbed by whatever he's listening to. Anyway, turns out he's an actual model, named Benjamin Jarvis, having likely been discovered by a scout who like me was probably struck by his look.
Awe, he seems sweet.
