billy idol is a fairy



Originally uploaded by kristalynn.

a long time ago, when i was a teenager, i was a mad crush on a guy named rich bank$. he played guitar and really, really loved billy idol. my friend krista had a mad crush on his older brother, who was a sears model and probably gay.

one day, in krista's basement, we came across a deck of 70s porn cards. we decided to woo the bank brothers by placing a select few of these porn cards on their parent’s windshield.

a few other neighbors got some too.

it then started to rain, we got bored, and discovered the art of collage. taking the entire afternoon, we crafted, with our gluesticks, the most beautiful collage of billy idol in a pretty pink dress with a tiara and, of course, a magic wand.

if you've ever created a collage, you know it is one of the funniest things ever. collage and flying food. two of the funniest things ever.

so, we cut out letters to form: "billy idol is a fairy" and we tittered our way down the street and placed our love note into the banks’ mailbox.

rick bank$ and i dated for 10 days. we hooked up at a tears for fears concert.

i remember when he played guitar for me on the telephone. he explained how he had to open his window to let some of the noise out of his bedroom. to this day, i still wonder if opening a window will dissipate noise.

my photoshopped incarnation of billy idol as a fairy PALES in comparison to the original.

When I was in undergrad, there was an exceptionally geeky guy who would come to the dances, but the women didn't really want to dance with him. But if he asked me to dance with him, I'd always say yes. He usually wanted to dance to Billy Idol's Rebel Yell--it kind of became our song.

Haaaa haaaa - that collage is close my friend... Sure, he's missing the red ballroom dress from Vogue BUT the wand is PERFECTION. Haaaaa... Oh and don't forget that Rich made the "c" in his first name into a "cents" sign... Don't ever forget that Smith... - kjc

to make a cents sign (¢) hold down alt and then press 155. alt 0162 also works.
