Oh wow...Dash Snow.
I met him at a party in grinningvillage in 2006. Of course I don't know him at all, but he didn't seem like a bad guy. He had alot of people hanging onto him, and you could tell he was definitely used to being the center of affection or at least obsession. I mean, he's definitely very charismatic without even trying to be....which is probably why I ended up hating everyone else and kind of liking him.
But...from the snippets of conversation I had with him it's really depressing at how far he's disappeared inside of his exterior performance. He's completey posessed with a supreme superficial confidence without any good reason for having it and I think that's why he's so charismatic....he makes you feel bold.
I really really like Ariel Levy's writing though. I didn't even know that it was her who wrote the NYmagazine article.
And just for the record: I trust the intentions (good or evil) of The Unholy Two and Chris L. much more than I trust semi-celebrity artists from NYC who worship Bukowski and adhere to their own personal doctrine of importance.
And on that note....does anyone else think that The Unholy Two would be a pretty sweet shoegaze band? I'm serious....
I am really glad Ariel Levy's critique of the abuses of previous generations progress by current artists and feminists exist.
dash snow...model, art shows in the whitney, and was up everywhere in nyc? its impressive even it is evidence of decline.
