Liverpool - Belfast // The Beatles in interviews had talked about how the guys on the boats came to Liverpool port with new R&B records that the 'boys' couldn't WAIT to get their hands on !!! This was the connection, of how poor LIVERPOOL changed music -- USA music came by ship. Took them out of the SKITTLE skiffle? Trend. Thank God. __ hberg
“I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress” — Alexander McQueen
