“This biting of their toe-nails over what is the cause of badness is what turns me into a fine laughing malchick. They don’t go into what is the cause of goodness, so why of the other shop? If lewdies are good that’s because they like it, and I wouldn’t ever interfere with their pleasures, and so of the other shop. And I was patronizing the other shop. Badness is of the self, the one, the you or me on our oddy knockies, and that self is made by old Bog or God and is his great pride and radosty. But the not-self cannot have the bad, meaning they of the government and the judges and the schools cannot allow the bad because they cannot allow the self. And is not our modern history, my brothers, the story of brave malenky selves fighting these big machines? I am serious with you, brothers, over this. But what I do I do because I like to do.”
( Burgess, A clockwork Orange )
Never been a fan of the ultra-violence, but I bang straight into boys just like Alex all the time. Instead of actually living with them, taking them too seriously, believing what they believe or doing what they do, I just take their image and put it on – I wear the(ir) ultra-violence, but I never act upon it. Seems like a sensible choice to me. It’s never actually about pleasure, it is always about choice, dear A-lex.
I was able to actually wear Alex thanks to the Romanian online vintage shop The Dear Hunters where I found this silky white jumpsuit. I’ve started my blog with an item from their site, a pink and green woolen jumper with rabbits on it. I’ve been keeping a close contact with The Dear Hunters, vintage & less , as they call themselves on their Facebook page. I’ve been buying and taking pictures in their snakeskin boots or their silky red shirts. I’ve always felt comfortable in the carefully chosen items- closer to myself. So go ahead, hunt hunt hunt or see what the wonderful people at The Dear Hunters have already found for you!
