punk is dead.

April 13th, 2017 @ 4:54 pm

over the years, i never understood why anyone ever said “punk is dead”.  i still go to punk shows, my favorite bands keep putting out albums and we all still dress like punks, so how is it dead? listen, i may not walk around looking like a true street/crust punk, but i can name you […]

when i first started thinking of detaching myself from #JAEJESS, i had trouble thinking of a name.  i was super stuck on wanting something short and sweet, and easy to remember.  i thought of this one while i was in the shower, inspired by one of my favorite LUSH product’s label… lord of misrule. i […]

if you keep up with this blog, you’ll slowly get to know that i don’t really focus on my outward personal appearance.  i don’t mean that i’m like, super hairy cave woman or don’t brush my hair or teeth or anything… i just mean it’s not super important for me to get my hair did […]
