i'm a writer. i need to know these things. [Jul. 6th, 2009|08:27 pm]
(i'm talking about the funk.)
i'm listening to a song called 'cosa nostra funk' by format:B (which is awesome), and it reminded me that i need to do research. RESEARCH. and so i call upon you, dearest friends, bosom buddies, et cetera et cetera, to recommend me any books (fiction or non-)/ websites that are not wikipedia/ movies/ general historical figures pertaining to the mob, the mafia, whichever group catches your fancy. i am aching to learn more about gangs. (and anything about seventies culture that isn't DISCO would be lovely, as well.) holy cow if anyone has any recommendations or ideas, i love you forever.

and oddly enough this fascination wasn't even inspired by the new johnny depp movie, so hah. HAH.

(what i really really need is some good solid references for men's suits and fashions through the years following the 50's. goddamn it, internet, when did you become so difficult to research with.)

also: the new MSI album is ridiculously entertaining. go listen to 'issues' and 'get it up' and tell me otherwise, GO.

The Costumer's Manifesto is seriously one of the most useful things on the internet. Which reminds me, I need to re-read her advice for going to Paris on the cheap...
