- Spinnerette’s Brody Dalle plugged into an amp as recently as last week! Looking forward to a new record, apparently she’s “slowly making my record , about halfway there” (according to one of her tweets!)
- This was a lovely find, an interview with corset maker Mr Pearl. He’s made creations for Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham and more and worked with designers John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Thierry Mugler, Antonio Berardi, and Christian Lacroix. The answers are handwritten by Mr Pearl himself as he doesn’t believe in computers, e-mail, or mobile phones. I just adore handwritten things.
