my whole life is a darkroom. one big darkroom.
Lydia Deetz has been my hero ever since I can remember, which by my IMDB calculations, is 1988. She's neurotic, dresses in black, and takes pictures. Three of my favorite things. Growing up, I either was told I looked like "Lydia from Beetlejuice" or "Wednesday from Addams Family." Both warmed me to my black metal core. Even the cartoon Lydia was a thrill to watch. That amazing spider cape, her high ponytail (which I still think of when I put my pony up that high), those glorious purplely insomnia eyes. And she even went to private school and had to wear a uniform !!just like mee!! and the few times over the years I've fashioned my baby bangs, it's in honor of her. Here's what I imagine her favorite things to be.... favorite song: Cocteau Twins - cherry coloured funk favorite tv show: night gallery favorite poet: Sara Teasdale favorite photographer: Weegee celebrity crush: Rod Serling
