Violet mood


Note about the clothing: I'm teasing you with the tights and collar. They're previews of stuff coming out shortly from Violet Voltaire (the collar!) and Sh*t Happens (the footless fishnets!).

And the sky was all violet, I want it again,
but more violet, more violet
I'm the one with no soul,
one above and one below


I was on a bus in the middle of Ireland, backpacking, a stupid just-post-college kid who was probably a decade less mature than she should be. I sat next to a girl who was going to be a volunteer for an ecological camp at the edge of the coast, showing off native sea life to tourists. We were mostly silent, but the one conversation I had with her makes me giggle even now.

Me: I like Irish music! The Pogues rock!
Girl: Oh dear god. The sodding Pogues. Why don't you listen to a good band, like Hole?
Me: Oh...the...Kurt Cobain girlfriend band.
Girl: BETTER MUSIC THAN NIRVANA, DAMNIT.

Thus did I learn that not all Irish people liked the Pogues, and was shamed into listen to some fine west-coast pissed-off chick music.

I'm listening to NPR, which always makes me feel like cranking up the OMGWTF music, which in turn inspired this post. As usual, everything kind of sucks. Let's all hide in our sweet dystopian paradise.
