Kill Yr Idols: What The Fuck Happened To Our Preeminent Filth Elder John Waters?

Are our idols destined to inevitably disappoint us? Are our role models preordained to fall short of our astronomical expectations?

Role Models: Grimes (Ok…And Elon Musk)

In the gleefully artificial disco haze of 1977, our role model Amanda Lear deadpan announced that she was a photograph. “I am a glossy photograph,” she coos in her song “I Am A Photograph. “Of course I am a bit retouched and my color has been processed.” Over forty years later, Grimes–otherwise known as Claire Boucher, otherwise known as c, renamed by her billionaire beau Elon Musk for the symbol for the speed of light, otherwise known as another one of my maniacal obsessions–became a hologram.

Weeping At The Seeping Beauty Of Band-Aids At David Lynch’s “Squeaky Flies In The Mud”

Can Band-Aids be beautiful? Yes, those uncannily flesh-colored, rubbery, sticky and potentially slimy strips that cover any number of sores, scratches, abrasions and ruptures.
