Thank you very much for the touching words. No offence but I really don’t believe in co-owned blogs. Especially not here on Tumblr. I’ve tried group blogging about a decade ago but even though I had amazingly clever and talented people helping and writing with me, I was very much startled by the way a clear concept, directive and aesthetic can get diluted and how I started toning my voice down, how I started regurgitating irrelevant news I didn’t feel any passion for just so that I was the first to post it and how I started writing for an audience. I hated that. Never ever write for an audience. It will up your Google ranking and iEgo forsho but it kills all good (blog) writing. Amen.
Wow.. I should really check my messages more often - I’ve only just discovered this.
Thank you so much for the background information, it sure is greatly appreciated to finally have a context for that photograph. x
Thanks, mate. I will keep it coming. In my own time though.
I haven’t actually stopped posting on the WurzelEmpire® for good, I just really don’t have any time for the website and the forum at the moment, but if you have an RSS reader, make sure to add both sites to it and you’ll see when they’re up and running again. Apologies for the long absence.
Yes, it seems so. The Fenner is the ultimate proof that my little shrivelled black heart can still be broken with masterful mix CDs and blue-eyed charm. I’m that simple, really.
The gallery project is having its ups and downs and it’s hiccuping its way through floods and major and minor disasters, but yeah, for now, you can stay tuned by subscribing to the newsletter here.
I assume it’s this picture/dress you’re talking about:
It’s from AllSaints Spitalfields AW 2009 but I absolutely cannot remember what it was called. Substrom used to call it Action Antoinette dress and I think that’s what it should really be called from now on.
N.B.: I have very limited time to answer everyone’s questions so the next batch will be answered at a later date. Ta. x
For questions of this nature and gravitas, it’s best to let the experts give you a profound and univocal answer:
