Meet the Shaggs



Margaret Talbot recommends Susan Orlean’s 1999 story on one of music’s strangest legends: 

“The Shaggs are a footnote, but Orlean turns their story into a moving meditation on vicarious ambition, loneliness, family, and the weirdness of being celebrated for failing.”

the last thing i googled was: what the time zone for london is.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

babyajumma replied to your photo “starting to feel more like myself”

you’re beautiful! is your hair lavender?

thank youuu☺

and sort of… i went a little overboard with toning but it should be gone in a few days. end goal is peach. but also i like the lavender bc first time i bleached my whole head it was to go lavender so it feels familiar and nice.
