Soon All This Will Be Picturesque Products: The Nauseating Fashion Week Commodification Of David Wojnarowicz

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? While some of our role models are known for their, at times, offensive outbursts (and we love them all the more for it), others have been so formative to our pathological world view that when … Continue reading

The Met’s Tacky And Tasteless “Camp: Notes On Fashion” Gift Shop Is More Camp Than The Show
