Before you read further, please note that I have never understood that whole (most likely) disdainful “they grow up so fast”, thrown droopily each time a brandy-huffing aunt feels the need to make nice with an audience. That being said, a few days ago when news broke that the awe-inspiring rad folks at Gaschette blog are working on an online magazine, a strange fluid formula framed my eye sockets. So very silly of me. A few hours ago when the magazine went live, I adopted a perfect conversation starter for the coming few outings. www.gaschettemag.com is by far, the only thing I am interested in talking about.
Super-duper cool as that is, the launch issue is themed around all the cool bits of the 1990’s with “Vile Irony” as the headline. And…erm, I too featured in a stunning portrait session titled Young Blood, alongside some of Joziburg’s most ill creatives geared up in our 90’s threads. It ain’t cool, no. this here is a jump-over-a-spiked-wire-wall-to-slap-a-bad-stylist-with-a-can-firece kind of rad.
