The Light Just Radiates



collage created from screen caps from "Malibu" by Hole. Directed by Paul Hunter

More 90s beauty. Courtney Love is a goddess in this video. Her skin and hair compliment the deeply saturated blues and magentas perfectly. I love the the silky sheer dresses, wispy, windblown hair and the beach bonfire. It makes me long for spring. A long sheer/ white dress is a must. This is also one of the prettiest Hole songs...it reminds me of a night I rode in the back of a friends convertible on a ride to Malibu at about 4am, one October night. I fantasize about being bi- coastal not only for the gorgeous weather, but for the rock scene. Other than a handful of bars (Lit, Skinny, St. Jerome's, and 3 of Cups) the rock is absent. Most NYC bars think "Journey" qualifies as rock. In LA, you could actually walk into a place playing "Celebrity Skin".

Nothing beats the nineties rock scene and the magnificent Seattle years... Luckily we can re-live them through fashion getaways. I love popping in a small bar and hearing an unknown band jam up some unexpectedly great tunes... Paris has some places like that. When would you wannna visit?;)
