ATTENTION DIY-ERS

so i know everyone is still bummed about the death of stencilpunks, but we still have to get our stencils somewhere, so i’ve started a google drive folder full of stencils. there’s a doc with political stencils, a doc with band stencils, and a doc with miscellaneous ones. here is the link to the folder. if you didn’t see a stencil you wanted or you wanted to contribute, feel free to request one or submit me one on here and i’ll add it! please reblog this to get the word out.

In the September 2015 issue of Sight & Sound, trash maestro John Waters is interviewed in advance of the British Film Institute’s comprehensive upcoming season of his films (It Isn’t Very Pretty … The Complete Films of John Waters. 1 September – 6 October). Waters’ love of Ike and Tina Turner - the volatile royal couple of rhythm and blues – is well-documented. He recalls how as teenagers in sixties Baltimore he and Divine would attend Ike and Tina Turner Revue gigs when they came to town:

“I don’t care what anyone says, (Tina) was better when she was with him. I mean, I don’t blame her for leaving him, good for her, but … We would see them at Unity Hall, it was a kind of working-class, blue-collar Union Hall. And they came in a broken-down green school bus with ‘Ike and Tina Revue’ painted on the side, like, hand-painted. And she looked like she did on the cover of Dynamite! [the Turners’ second album together released in 1963]: she had on a ratty wig, a mink coat, a moustache, springalotors, she did have a moustache. She was un-believe-ably great. And the Ikettes behind them were so great. It was a huge influence on Divine and I, Tina Turner. And I still love her. God knows, they could sing. They were unbelievable together. I saw them a couple times. And they’d sing “Don’t Play Me Cheap.” Oh my god … she was an influence. More than anybody.”
