Halloween, LVHRD, Slade, And Stuff
It is Halloween and the day is full of possibilities, candy, and girls dressed as sluts. I have not decided how I am going to handle all of this just yet (aside from dressing up as Edie Beale again, that is).
Last night, I hosted the fuck out of an event for the popular LVHRD organization called FSHNDL IV: UNDD BLL. As you may have gathered by now, the LVHRD people are entirely opposed to the use of vowels. Seriously, they really seem to hate them. So in simpler times I might have told you that the Live Hard organization put on an event called Fashion Duel IV: Undead Ball. As of this writing, however, this is simply not possible.
Anyway, the vowel-less event that I hosted the fuck out of last night was good times and involved- among other things- two design teams (Eventide and the Lake and the Stars) going toe-to-toe in a battle of wits, electrical tape, paper, and scissors to design elaborate gowns for two models who were standing around in their underwear to the delight of me and pretty much anyone else in attendance who might be a sucker for that sort of thing (i.e. drunk dudes). There was free stuff to drink (courtesy of the Dewar’s and Brooklyn Brewery people), loud music (courtesy of DJ Woodman), and people covered in fake blood that smelled just like chocolate (courtesy of a genius I would love to meet). All in all, not bad for a Tuesday. Next time I will bring the whole family. Seriously though, dammit, the LVHRD people- despite their hatred of vowels- know how to cook up a good time and for that (and many other things) they are to be commended. Next time they have some shit going on you should totally go cuz you will be loving that shit like a motherfucker.
In other news, here is a video for Slade’s “Cum on Feel the Noize.” Most Americans probably know Quiet Riot’s version of the song. But let the record show it is originally by Slade and I think their version is pretty great (too). Also, Slade’s guitar player is named Dave Hill (the guy with the impressive bangs) so I’m kind of biased here, you know, because that’s my name too. And don’t even get me started on the plaid vest/pants/hat combo. Screw those tight silver suits we were promised, in the future I hope everyone dresses just like this.
