I'll Wear Any Color As Long As It's Black

Decided to decorate the fuck out of the bathroom . . .

I can rattle off the history of every single piece that I’ve hung up, but rather than bore you with pointless drivel, I’ll just tell what — to me — is the most interesting story. The scary mask above was given to me by Maryna when she was last in New York. I hadn’t seen her since we all went to Berlin together. She had taken her stuff out of storage to go through it at my apartment and she offered me this mask. Her ex-boyfriend, who had passed away, was a huge Swans fan who had written to them asking for something special. Michael Gira and Jarboe sent back this autographed and decorated piece of creepiness. I am not usually one for autographs, but I like that this object has such a history and purpose and I didn’t want its inanimate life to have to end, so I took it.
