In the Mood For… Kim Fucking Gordon

Today, my friends, Kim Gordon turns 60 (yes, you read that correctly, 60) years old. Clearly a tribute to this incredible woman is in order. So, here you have it, my top 10 favorite Kim Gordon moments, projects, accomplishments, traits, whatever. In no particular order. (Determining the list was hard enough- you want me to order them? Not possible.) Add anything I missed in the comments please!

4. That Time I Met Kim Gordon

Michael and I braved some lame shopping event at a store in Oakland to meet Kim Gordon. Everyone was dressed very hip and “fashion-forward” except for us. There was free wine and we got sloshed. Kim was extremely nice, talked to us about art and music and not clothes. I gave her a homemade compilation of female-fronted French punk music.

So ’90s.

    Number four should be number one. Definitely.

    Definitely a case where the soundtrack rules over the flick. And ahead of its time, really. Then again, could this album be to blame for rap rock/ nu metal?

    I’m torn. That and Onyx really bugs me.

    I feel really bad for not having heard of her before now. 😦
