nothing from nothing leaves nothing

Thank you to all your dolly girls for your advice during my quarter-life crisis in my previous post. I have a lot to think over in regard to this site - I love blogging and it's such a great outlet for me, but I want to make sure that it's not a one-way street and that y'all can actually have fun reading this as well. There are so many blogs out there that I envy/lust after and I hope to one day become that site for at least one young doll (or dude) who is beginning their journey into retro-dom and has no clue who Marianne Faithfull is and can't tell their Godard from their Truffaut.
For me, while feedback and comments are always nice, what people say isn't what takes the cake for me at the end of the day. I love knowing that there are kids out there just like me that care about this stuff just as much, if not more, than I do. I'm obsessive about things that my real-life friends deem strange (too random to be 'quirky' I suppose), so more often than not I don't tell them about what I'm into at the moment. In fact, none of my real-life friends know that I have a blog. But knowing there are people who emulate Penny Lane, who lust after Anita Pallenberg's jewelry and want to sleep with Serge Gainsbourg and George Harrison as much as I do is really comforting for me, because it lets me know that we are not alone. Maybe all we have to link us to one another is this strange, strange thing called the internet world, but thank God for it! I would be so scared if this were an alternate universe where I didn't have this outlet and I ended up like one of my Sperry's-and-Nike-shorts-wearing former classmates who only listen to rap and think black-and-white movies are terrible based upon some messed-up principle that black-and-white movies are outdated and lame. And the fact that these fantastic bloggers out there have cared enough to click the 'follow' button means a lot to me.
I don't know, but that's just me. Anyways, I'll get back to regular, non-moping, non-pseudo intellectual blogging very soon!

Hi there. I just discovered your blog recently and I feel strongly that I should weigh in and show my appreciation for what you do. It's all about knowing that there are other people out there who, as you say, care about this stuff as much as you do. It's a little disheartening when you're excited about things like the reissue of Girl on a Motorcycle on DVD or reading Infinite Variety for the first time and not knowing anyone else to get excited with you about it. Please keep it up! Knowing that kindred spirits are out there, even if only in the great wide interwebz, is a great reward.

I am so glad that you posted this. My real life friends know the basics of what I like, but they have no idea the extent to which it goes and they themselves really have none of the same interests as I do. I am so so thankful that I can connect with people who have the same interests as me as well. I had to laugh out loud at the Nike short's/Sperry's/Rap music comment because I have a lot of friends who dress like that and about 97% of the girls at my university dress like that and think that Lil Wayne is the end all be all. It is frightening how much they all look the exact same. I really think I would go insane if I didn't know there were people out there who liked the same things I did. Keep up the good work your blog is absolutely amazing, intelligent and thoughtful!

I completely whole heartedly love and adore this post. Like you, my friends have no idea about my blog nor know about my love for the things I post on it! I love that through the internet I can meet the rare gems that share my interest and passion for Pattie Boyd, Jim Morrison, Keith Richards etc...
wooo hooo Dolly Rocker Girl!!!

The world has always needed those who don't follow the crowd. These are the ones who reach greatness.

Thanks for this blog, DRG.
