2. "You know I never loved you more than when we were hiding from those sirens. sirens. Oh, we laughed so hard. Threw up in your mother's azaleas... That was before. We. Had made. Any terrible mistakes..."   - St. Vincent, Teenage Talk

3.  "If you've got a spare half-a-million. You could knock it down and start rebuilding..." - Courtney Barnett, Depreston

4. I'm looking for back-issues of SASSY magazine circa 1991-1994 for a project I'm working on about being a teenager in the 90s. (I've been working tediously on said project and will write something about it as soon as I can. In the meantime, please bear with me and the sporadic 90s/teenage references.) SO! If anyone has a stack of Sassys in their garage and is looking to sell them at a reasonable price... I will be eternally yours. Signed, Girl's Gone Vagueblogging.

...In the meantime, I did stumble upon this gem (see above) which boasts some pretty sweet scans from the 90s. I actually had this silver angel spread on my wall/one of the images on my school binder... and actually taught myself how to emulate the silver eye-makeup thanks in part to an obsession with MAC's iridescent eye shadows:
(I later went on to perfect the look thanks to holy bible, Kevyn Aucoin's Making Faces.)

Anyway... Sassy Mag back issues, anyone? I literally saved EVERY SINGLE thing from yesteryear EXCEPT my old magazines (which I cut up and used as wrapping paper/book covers when I wasn't wallpapering my bedroom walls with the pages) and I'm kicking myself that I didn't save SOME of them, at the very least. This one, especially. Classic.
