I was on the F train in NY last weekend, and I started admiring this girl’s hair. It was cut in a normal style, naturally jet black with some red dye, but she had bobby-pinned a tiny portion of her hair up against the side of her head in an X formation. I made a mental note to try it sometime myself.
Call John Cale the catalyst, but it wasn’t until the intermission during his awesomely awesome, hypnotic set at BAM that night that I turned to Chops and said, “I kinda want to shave two little lines in my hair on the side of my head.” And he was like, “Aw COOL man! That would be so cyberpunk!” (William Gibson superfan). So there you have it… two strange dashes in my hair hehe.
