theredshoes asked: ....do you want a minion? Because after reading your answers to all the other questions I must express my admiration somehow.
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.
liquidnight asked: Here is a different version of that photo you recently asked about, with background information:
The book in which I found it is absolutely wonderful, just in case you haven't seen it already. But then again, pretty much anything from The Burns Archive is guaranteed to be a treasure.
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
urhajos asked: Hey! I love your stuff and i hope you'll share some fantastic pieces of art in the future too. I'm sad that you stopped posting onto your blog, but it's also ok with this account. Please keep up the good work! Cheers : )
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.
missrye asked: Hi there
I found this pic of a blonde girl with a rad buckle dress. It linked to your blog, do you know where this dress comes from?
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

so eine leichtherzige, hoffungsvolle junge Frau wie Sie könnte durchaus die Erfahrungen haben, die mir meine Frage beantworten könnte. Also hier die Frage:

For questions of this nature and gravitas, it’s best to let the experts give you a profound and univocal answer:
Anonymous asked: 3 years ago you told me that you don't believe in souls --- Remember ? ---Still think you've got no soul ? --- dings
Hey you, dings! Course I remember our smoked-filled early morning conversations on the patio. ^__^
Yes, I still stand by that statement. Souls are bullshit. We have a consciousness, subconsciousness and an unconsciousness with an anima and an animus, but no “soul”.
Like most religio-ideological concepts, it’s a terribly cute idea of the desperate mind, and definitely deserves some literary credit as it made a lot of great thinkers write great things, but noes, it’s clearly a construct.
