Too May For You: Our Fave Posts From the Past Month
-Probably the best thing we've ever done in our lives, at least this month anyway, is "Style Icons, Part Deux" (aka nogoodforme.com's second annual style icons series). Bigger and better and badder than last year, the 2009 lineup is John Lennon in Rishikesh, Tina Chow, Punky Brewster + Helen Hunt in Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Rainbow Brite & the Color Kids, Dita Von Teese, Axl Rose, Lee Scratch Perry, The Wassup Rockers Kids, Geri Halliwell at the 1997 BRIT Awards, Peggy Oki/Jeff Spicoli/Eva, Marguerite Duras, Courtney Love, Cayce Pollard, Jimi Hendrix + Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ray Davies. FYI, this is also the starting lineup for the nogoodforme.com fantasy basketball team.
-Every metaphysically astute fashion glossy in the Milky Way wishes its staff had brainstormed up something as brilliant as a a guide to astrological perfumery in last month's edit meeting. But they didn't, because LJ thought of it first. Ha!
- Articles like Kat's All-Time Top 5 Madonna Covers post are the bread and butter of nogoodforme.com, casually but cerebrally exploring the intersection between music, clothing, art, style, and life itself. Bonus points for Dean Wareham inclusion, notes Laura Jane.
-Another brilliant thing LJ thought to do was film herself drunk-dialing Spencer Pratt, who didn't answer, but it was awesome anyway. Lookit..
-Speaking of Spencer Pratt, May 2009 unofficially turned into "Obsessive Heidi & Spencer Hate-Fest Month" on nogoodforme.com. Check out our Favorite Celebrity Twitters article to reconnect with ngfm's first major hit of Speidi-loathing, then soothe your soul by trolling some Twitters written by less-worthless stars.
-If Kat's Madonna cover analysis post was the bread and butter of nogoodforme.com, Liz's Dear Diary, Will Surfing Turn Me Into a Satanist? (Or: Dennis Wilson Is Maybe My New Favorite Beach Boy, But Charles Manson Is Still a Total Loser) is decidedly our "kitchen sink ice cream sundae drowning in liquid acid." In a surprise upset against Laura Jane, Liz definitely took home the blue ribbon for "Weirdest nogoodforme Post" this May. But this is nogoodforme.com, not freakin' US Vogue: the weirder the better; the more Satanic, the best.
-May also saw the introduction of LJ's new column The Young Person's Guide to the Beatles, which will eventually be a book, and then LJ will go on a book tour and we can all go to our local Borders and have her sign our copies. The column debut, "Opinions on 5 Beatles Songs I Have Yet to Opine About," is a "delightful romp....Five stars!" raves nogoodforme.com.
-Characteristically, the nogoodforme troika is way beyond hackneyed wishes like world peace, hot dudes, and Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt's deaths. We think outside the box (or, in this case, outside the magic lamp). As outlined in the Be Careful What You Wish For installment of nogoodforme ix, all we need is yellow-complected douchebags, for Twinkies to be flaxseeds, and a meta-desert island to call our own. Oh! And Total Media Domination, of course. And for YOU to keep reading, and to have a lovely (Too) June (For You)!
