Is it just the clothes? Is it the person wearing it?
So here is the truth about that dress, and you’ll find out that it’s not just the clothes that make things seem bigger, it’s the way you dress your part. I mean, I was born in the 80’s, and my mother was a seamstress and a tailor and all sorts of things that took up a lot of time to do. Well, when I was 10 (I’m now 22) I started sewing because I was making stuff for a friend of mine and I asked her if she’d be ready to sew one day and she had me sew in her closet for a week, I think, and I learned a lot about sewing and design that way. So you could say I’d been sewing my whole life, and the big part of where it started was the clothes. A lot of my fashion now is a homage to the ’80s and ’90s, but as far as what it’s really wearing, that’s a much more difficult, but more exciting, question, but I like to imagine it’s still part of the clothes I would wear to bed.
Lately I’ve been playing the music of Neil Young very quickly.
It was about a month ago, after going through the first eight songs of the “The Year That Never Was,” that I noticed I started having trouble getting to know what was going on in Neil’s brain. I don’t mean how that song works, just that I started having trouble with it.
The same kind of problem seemed to come up this past weekend when I listened to “The Last Time,” “Sierra Nevada” and “In A Silent Way.” It was, I think, the fourth year since these albums were recorded, which seems like a long time now, so I think I caught some sort of cognitive bug. I’ve been listening very fast, not very carefully. Not all at once but sometimes over the course of an hour or so, just going through the songs, trying to make sense of what Neil’s trying to say.
I started noticing that there was a pattern to his lyrics. On “The Year That Never Was,” you might think there’s just one thing to be found here and there, like a hook or something like that, but in the end there are more than a few things to think about, and each one of them changes. There’s “I’ll show you,” which is about seeing, and maybe a little about a
