Uncontrolled styling kills punk dead

It felt so good to get Portia back into Surf Couture’s Elsa Boots, which are divinely slouchy and clompy. I thought the boots worked well with Modd.g’s Ulysses Trilby hat. But once I’d clothed Portia fully and set up this shot with a guitar and stool, I realized that I had inadvertently turned her into some kind of New Country singer. Whatever New Country is.

Panicked, I tried to rescue my av, and my readers, from the hayseed image by pulling out one of my instant-cool T-shirts: CBGBs, the home of New York punk, was a haven for kids who set fire to crops, not a hangout for those who harvest them. Relieved, I started shooting again, but soon remembered that the name CBGB originally stood for “Country, Bluegrass, and Blues.” Gah! And ack! I had lost control of my styling, and the consequences were too much to bear: it was as though punk had never happened. In any life.
