Our cabinets and drawers got a big facelift with the Mission pulls in oil rubbed bronze (almost exclusively in 4″, with the exception of a few 3. 5″ for smaller drawers), which in person reads as almost pure black with no reddish undertones. Just like that, the kitchen looked so pulled together , very non-fussy and classic. It was that feeling we’ve been looking for all along. A last minute decision had us re-wiring our under cabinet lighting placement – a decision that was made as soon as we laid eyes on the Hannah. The white metal dome shade with its black rim is the perfect complement to our white cabinetry and dark hardware. I went to their website to peruse and goodness… I don’t know if I can find only one thing that tops my list. Their lights… are things I dream of. The hardware you bought for your kitchen is pure perfection… no fingerprints. Your kitchen looks fantastic but you’ve got to be kidding me. I just spent an hour on their website and would not even know where to start to spend $500 because I WANT ALL THE THINGS. I guess I would start with the same pulls you’re getting for your kitchen because those look great. I almost hate to say it, but they’re giving Schoolhuse a serious run for their money. Congrats on the new kitchen–it looks amazing.
Yielding classics such as “Sister Midnight”, “Nightclubbing” and “China Girl”. Many critics stated that this was really a David Bowie moment with Iggy taking the credit. Whether or not Bowie helped Pop get his career back on track is not the case here as maybe it was back in 77, this record can be seen as the progenitor to what we now know as Post-Punk. Even though a year earlier on Bowie’s very own discordant masterpiece”Station to Station” in the title track itself we were gifted the seed, but The Idiot is the growth and excercise from that very seed. Bowie could be seen as the godfather of Post-Punk but as he visited and touched upon many different genres, this very detail maybe a tad over looked. Released: March 1977. Chart Peak: #72. Weeks Charted: 13. Iggy Pop has always been the greatest rock comedian. As leader and frontispiece for that most extreme wing of rock nihilism represented by the Stooges, he at once defined and ridiculed the options left to punk rockers after “My Generation. ” The nihilist attitude meant plenty when it was a reaction to the pop status quo best exemplified by Dick Clark, but once nihilism itself became the status quo it was trivialized into mere decadence, a fashionable synonym for boredom. Iggy’s criticism is a brilliant, if depressing, argument in defense of that much debated assertion that rock is dead. The Idiot, recorded by Bowie, sung in a tired growl excoriated from Jim Morrison via Ray Manzarek, and steeped in the so-called “minimalist” ambiance currently so fashionable among young bands who’ve spent too much time listening to Iggy and...
