Madonna's Desperately Seeking Susan Jacket Could Be ALL YOURS! (If We Were In 1985 Right Now)
Just for kicks, I'm (re-)reading the complete Spin archives. Here's a little something from October 1985.
OH GOD I CAN'T BELIEVE I MISSED OUT ON THIS! Apparently, in 1985, you could cut out an order form from a magazine, write a check for $54.95, and send away for a jacket just like the one Madonna and Rosanna Arquette wore in Desperately Seeking Susan. It's specially rendered by a well-known New York fashion designer! It has a stunning mystic eye! It's unique, fashionable, fun. I want, I want, I want.
I wonder how many jackets they ended up making? I wonder how many still exist? Do you have an official Desperately Seeking Susan jacket? Please sell it to me. I will pay you seven million dollars.
P.S. Also in this issue there's this front-of-the-book piece with actual horoscopes from the days Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Mama Cass, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison died. Which sounds kinda cool and exciting, but really it's mostly depressing. Go figure.
P.P.S. I skipped the September '85 issue. The most interesting thing was Lydia Lunch interviewing Pat Benatar, and I basically couldn't give a damn, or even half a damn. Furthermore, I think the world would be a far better place if people stopped thinking it's awesome to karaoke "Love Is A Battlefield." Like, if a world where John Lennon thinks "Everybody smoke pot" is a good lyric and Laura can't tell the difference between the White Stripes and the Fiery Furnaces is a ZERO, and actual life is a FIVE, then a "Love Is A Battlefield"-karaoke-free existence would be a PERFECT TEN. So let's all try to elevate ourselves to that level from now on. Deal?
