back in the heyday of my childhood blondie's 'heart of glass' appeared to be an anthem for this little soviet kid dreaming of becoming a pioneer while waving little red flag in the kindergarten. all of my friends back then believed lenin was their grandfather and wanted to become a pilot or a cosmonaut. now that times have changed, they believe in vertu, mercedes benz and cocaine. we don't care lenin anymore, but blondie seems to be a relic. discovering capitalism promised to be as sweet as blondie's tune. no-one thought it's going to stink blood and chanel No5.
in the video her dress looks like a bastard child of martin margiela and raf simons for jil sander. or is it me over-conceptualizing?
