Is such a talent. Check out her music. And her clips.
It’ll give you nearly 3 hours of auditory pleazzzure. But – plot twist! – it’s not 100% correct. The real playlist is the chapter list. Every chapter is a song title (and the artist is mentioned somewhere in the corresponding chapter – except Ch.23, Everything is Embarrassing, because Sky Ferreira, the artist, is mentioned at the end of Ch.22 instead).
So what’s different? Spotify wouldn’t let me add ‘Alpha’ by LOLO BX.
Nor could I include ‘Pictures’ by Wish.
So I stuck ‘How Do You Do It’ by Empress of in there instead because I’ve been listening to it a lot lately.
Also I substituted ‘This is what makes us girls’ by Lana Del Rey, for ‘You can be the boss’ – also by Lana Del Rey. If you do a search around you’ll probably find it. It’s one of her demo songs from when she was early into her ingenue phase. (On this – when will she release those demo songs? Is that planned? Has it happened?) Anyway, my original choice goes a lot better with that chapter (which is one of the controversial ones, apparently).
And everything else is the same.
The chapter list is included below, just in case you are the obsessive type (like me, obviously ;).
You’ll notice Clementine Ford has given the front quote for SUMMER SKIN, and that made my whole year because she is a champion in every respect of the word. Anyway, you should also know that she has a book coming out next year, called FIGHT LIKE A GIRL. She speaks more about it in this interview with Pedestrian TV Read all of it. You have to. She says, as usual, so many things that are just right. I have to quote, though, because … well, because I can’t stop myself really:
Yet when women do fight back, or get angry, or present themselves as anything less than feminine and docile, we’re shamed for it. We’re not supposed to fight. We’re not supposed to present ourselves in a way that makes other people feel uncomfortable. We’re told that to change things we have to be nice and sweet, we have to make the people who have the power not feel threatened.
That Gif is taken from Misty Miller, Next to You. She is brilliant. Happy Friday peoples!
