Sunshine and Self Help month kicks off with a groovy guide to life by the endlessly cool Jennifur Brandt (aka Jennifer Brandt Taylor). Were you a weirdo, nostalgic teen who admired both Riot Grrl culture and classic cinema? Do you love collage, paper dolls, and pissing off the patriarchy? Read along with us as we talk novelty stores, fashion tips from 2000, and the eternal appeal of Weetzie Bat.
Life is a Movie Starring You: Out of print! Check your beloved local used bookstore, or some of these shops who can ship copies to you: Strand Bookstore, Montclair Book Center. Of course, there are used copies on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the like!
Old Hollywood movies means Old Hollywood values! That means racism, sexism, and all sorts of -isms. Otherwise, a happy, kind, and supportive guide whose advice we endorse to this day!
