Take it from Miss Barbara Blonde, if you want to make it in New York—you're going to have to learn to be tough. A working class mannequin subjected daily to the dietary and catty pressures of display windows, torturous hair schools, and even yes—when times are really tough—beauty supply stores. It wasn’t like this in California, where the sun was usually shining and her parents were close by. Her mother, a regular fixture at Macy’s in LA and San Francisco, and her father, an accountant for the department store, warned Miss Barbara B not to venture so far from the familiar. But the smell of urine on the subway and the crisp winters and sweaty summers beckoned her. She knew that there would be endless opportunity, a new adventure around every corner. She packed her bag, put up her hair, and found herself dead smack in it—Brooklyn, New York.
Meet Miss Barbara Blonde. If you’re a girl who thirsts for a taste of city living, read this column. She’s gonna make it after all.
Lord knows I can write a whole novel about sex.
I've seen everything from a man sticking his whole arm up his ass to another dude sticking a thin shiny metal antenna rod down his pee hole. Which is called "sounding" by the way. But instead, I will leave you with a video I have adored ever since I saw the digital art piece back in the day.
Malcolm Goldie, the music and sound specialist of the PAM trio, records separately under the name of Daisy Daisy. The original composition was used in 'My Sky Is Erotic' by Multiplex, but was later reworked and extended into a psychedelic-tinged electro pop single which is included above.
PAM's promo video builds on the hypnotic ping pong beat and explodes into a mix of modernist architecture, alpine sceneries, 70's soft porn and domestic pets. Directed by PAM and released on Sunday Best.
