Because we don’t do karaoke and WE DON’T DO BACKUP.
(Just kidding. I just thought that sounded confrontational in a ’90swoman way.)
Anyway, as far as I am concerned, a book on The Long 90s that explores the deep theoretical connections between (my favorite) feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray’s “Speculum of the Other Woman” “This Sex Which is Not One” and The Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself” = heaven. If you agree, go read some excerpts or, better yet, buy the book. Which is actually about, like, history and pop music. And what the fall of the Berlin Wall had to do with The Scorpions’ “Winds of Change.” Or something. While you are waiting for it to arrive, you can make a mix tape….i mean, ipod mix. May I suggest listening to Jesus Jones’ “Right Here Right Now” while you ponder whether or not Pearl Jam really is “forever T.S. Eliot to Nirvana’s Ezra Pound.”–kara
