That’s right, I’m coming for you Samantha Ronson and Leigh Lezark!
My friend Dasha has good ideas. In fact, she has an entire magazine called Garage that is the visual culmination of those ideas. (In addition to the magazine, she started the most important contemporary art center in Russia and is making over an entire island in the center of St. Petersburg into a museum and educational space. No big deal.) Her most recent good idea? During the New York collections, she started RadioGarage, a free, internet-only web radio show where people come and talk about, well, anything. I went on and talked about the spring trends, fashion politics and meeting Mariah Carey. Other guests have included a wide variety of folks, everyone from Martha Stewart to Giovanna Battaglia. Jefferson Hack brought a spoken word poem, Bethony Vernon gave sex tips. It’s a free for all.
Another good idea that Dasha had was for her and I to DJ at a party in Paris to celebrate the debut of RadioGarage. (I will take responsibility for coming up with the name, however.) But good ideas don’t always pan out. And it turns out that DJ’ing is, like, really hard and someone who is as easily distracted as I am cannot be burdened with such a responsibility. Not that we didn’t take it seriously. At the bottom of this post, after I throw up some pictures of some of the people who came to support my radio debut, I’m going to list some of the songs that Dasha and I played at the party. Yeah, we were pretty all over the place. Feel free to leave additional party songs in the comments because, hey, you never know, maybe I’ll DJ again. (But probably not.) And check out www.GarageMag.com for the rest of Paris fashion week for more from GarageRadio.
