I am POSTMODERN GIRL
While perusing the latest Blueprint magazine I came across one of my favorites--the section that recommends music based on certain types of listeners. This month is revving up for holiday gift-giving and thus had numerous categories. One such was for Sister/Best Friend and was broken down into two 'titles'. Under "Postmodern Girl" included some of my MOST worn out albums: Blonde Redhead "23", Beirut "Gulag Orkestar", Sonic Youth "Daydream Nation", and Tegan and Sara "The Con". Every single one!! At first I was apprehensive about accepting myself as a part of a category, but you know, I don't mind. It is probably the most accurate I have come across. However, I am thinking real post-modernism, horizontal culture, Saussere kinds of influences...but I get it, and so far that is the closest to seeing a glimpse of 'me' in pop-culture or media. Random.
