Holy Jeebus Kayne

Kayne you crahzee! I love a good feather ruffler and iconoclast just as much as the next guy but when you actually begin to believe in your own bullshit and hype that is when it becomes a lil tedious. Prime example: Kayne's twitter account. However in saying that have you seen how freaking awesome Kayne's new video is?

The Bearded Lady

(Source: Patrick Mohr, Berlin Fashion Week

Feminine facial hair has started to pervade my periphery. Wanting to know the cause of the real life cases that have sparked the bearded trend in fashion and music, I did some investigating. Through the most trusted of all sites and the pinacle of academia ; wikipedia, I found the main reasons why women suffer from excessive facial hair:-
-hormonal imbalance
-a rare genetic disorder called 'hypertrichosis'

However, like most things that don't confine to the hegemonic norms of society they are stigmatized and labeled 'freak shows' and found refuge in the circus and carnivals during the frigid Victorian era. However living in the present idiosyncratic society means that these abnormalities are given a wider focal point through musicians like CocoRosie and the fashion shows of Patrick Mohr.

So fresh so clean!

New beginnings! I have decided to start fresh with my bloggigty bloggigty after going "jack kerouac" on my blog's ass for some time. Not to sure in the direction in which I will take this blog but it is nice to be back from my spasmodic hiatuses and therefore plan to put my idle time to good use and what better way then to add more useless trite to the internet! Brill.
