I’d like to formally blame Tim Rice, Benny Anderson, and Bjorn Ulvaeus for fucking up vast swathes of my life, particularly those phases in which I (obviously) played in various ways the roles of the Russian, the American, Florence, and Svetlana. Because I am, on the one hand, that fucking complex, and on the other, that fucking impressionable. Celebrating over 20 years of being fucked up by glorious, delectable, inimitable trash. Childhood, love life, work life, it’s all there in black and white and infinite shades of fucked up 80s power ballads, break-away pop numbers (to quote Buffy), ludicrous cold war stereotypes, and a fairly fucked up broken child/tortured artistic soul/the irresistible power of misogyny in gray. Damn, though, some of those chord transitions still give me goose bumps. I’d also like to thank myself for dropping the $18.33 on reacquiring this in March 2011, in the wake and as a way of negotiating of my grandmother’s death. Coping strategies, baby, and busy boozy Wednesdays.



Missed a month!

Damn. January was crazy, but that’s the first month that got away from me since the March-May stretch last year. Or, the February-March bit the year before that. Never mind. Too much to do, and much to say, but, you know, not here.
