Both the employee review and catamite sum up my feels about LULU better than I could.
Also, I will probs get LULU out from the library, because I am
a) still very much a Lou Reed fan, even after all this time. His music touched something in me when I was 14 and it still touches me every time I listen to it, you know?
b) writing a lot lately about LR’s influence on me as a raggamuffin queer punk teenager, and
c) a completist.
But Real Talk, I would not actually pay $23 for that shit. I do have SOME standards.
See also, I am still waiting for him & Laurie Anderson to do a whole album together, as opposed to just a song here or there over the years. I love Laurie Anderson even more than I love Lou Reed, and their collaborations thus far have all been really cool!
oh dear lord, why, Lou? why?
I don’t care. If you are Lou Reed you are basically allowed to do terrible shit sometimes because you are Lou Reed and you already won forever.
