Way back in the seventies, before I was born, when the world was young and dinosaurs walked the earth, a Steely Dan promo for radio DJs came with a tacky t-shirt. It was pink. Which was useless given most DJs were men. And it only had the words "Steely Dan t-shirt" printed on it. It was, however, incredibly, -credibly rare, so it became a sought-after collector's item.
Steely Dan themselves commented on that in another song, Show Business Kids: "They got the house on the corner, with rug inside; they got the booze they need, all that money can buy; they got the shapely body, they got the Steely Dan t-shirt" — casting the shirt as the ultimate empty status symbol.
This is how I remember the story. I'm making a special point out of not looking it up to check, because it's a legend, guys, drift is practically a requirement! That said, the Steely Dan site usually makes for a good read. And so do the Steely Dan dictionary and possibly the interpretations site.
Anyway, I always wanted one, because it was so … HHOS or something. Not taking itself seriously to just the right degree.
As you may have noticed, the server was down for almost an entire day, so I have to get creative to fill the quota in time. : ) This one's from the warm-up (click through for full image to see why it never had a chance — the fan hates me in this one and rather than giving me a child-of-the-wind look, it gives me antennae : ) Could possibly use some retouche at the creases and the butt, too). I included it here because its softer, more catalogue-y look provides a nice contrast to the harsher, more severe fashion look of the very same outfit that we saw last night. You gotta love how versatile photography can make you.
It's so fun when you're pretty and go grocery shopping. You can laugh and make fun of everything, and race the carts the around, and take 100 items to the express lane, and everyone thinks it's cute and endearing instead of obnoxious and stupid. Supermodel personals
