Wrist-ery! Also: what to wear/wield in the desert.

all the bacon and eggs

The answer to what to wear in the desert is always Janet's "Together Again" outfit/hair.

Obviously we all need fingerless driving gloves. And a hat that says PUSSY. Jane Marie - Bargain Bin?

"In 2009, Boucher and her then-boyfriend from Tennessee constructed a 20-foot houseboat, named the "Velvet Glove Cast in Iron," with the intention to sail it down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans. The cargo included chickens, a typewriter, 20 pounds of potatoes and a gifted copy of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Unfortunately for Grimes and her companion, the chickens caught eastern equine encephalitis virus and perished soon into the trip.Boucher and her companion adopted the names "Varuschka" and "Zelda Xox" for the trip. Due to engine trouble and subsequent harassment from the Minnesota police, the journey was cut short and the houseboat and chickens were impounded. Their diet consisted of mainly potatoes."

@Decca Whattt.

And then: What am *I* doing without chickens and a houseboat and crazy names?

Decca

@Edith Zimmerman Not perishing of eastern equine encephalitis virus, that's what.

Danzig!

@Decca She and Pictureplane are like the queen and king of bourgeois crust-punk chic. They dress like the cool kids from Earnest Goes To Camp, too.

Okay, I love this video and it amuses me that people are all "where's the plot lolololol" about it. Who needs a plot when you have floor-length pink braids and an albino boa constrictor?!?!

@cuminafterall The CBC showed clips of this video earlier in the week on the morning news cycle in an attempt to be hip and also to fill airtime. Also the video is far odder than what they bothered to show. Its like a training camp for cosplayers.

Servicey for anyone headed to Burning Man this weekend.

FYI: Grimes has a line of rings inspired by the vulva.

WhiskeySour

@cuminafterall Oh wow! I thought they'd be more Georgia O'Keeffe "check out this cool flower" vulvae. Nope.

Grimes was in one of the classes I took in my last year of university! It was pretty small, so we had group presentations and stuff. She seems about the same in interviews as she did in class.

Rachel@twitter

the cast of The Tribe (no? i was the only person who watched weird kiwi shows on cable?) goes to burning man?

possibility girl

@Rachel@twitter Ah!So glad you mentioned The Tribe, I was beginning to think that I was insane or that entire show was some kind of crazed fever dream.

Chrestomanci

@possibility girl Oh, The Tribe was real all right. Who could forget those crazy hairstyles and bad fake American accents?

wee_ramekin

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha Grimes. What are you doing?

Bob Loblaw

The flaming sword is pretty cool. I want one. I don't know what for. I too would probably just wave it heroically as I walked down the beach at dusk.

Now I understand you, Grimes.

Two things:

1) In the scenes where Grimes was sitting with her friends in the woods, I totally had flashbacks to Eeyore's Birthday in Austin.

2) Do you think Grimes collects friends based on how oddly they dress/dance?
