Got a Girl Crush On: Troy in Spike Lee’s “Crooklyn”

Love this coming-of-age movie that vignettes around being the only girl in a family of boys during a summer in Brooklyn in the 70s.

Got a Girl Crush On: Laurie Anderson’s “Fully Automated Nikon (Object/Objection/Objectivity)”

Anderson photographed men who called to her or whistled her on the street.  In her artist statement she writes about one experience,

“As I walked along Houston Street with my fully automated Nikon.  I felt armed, ready. I passed a man who muttered ‘Wanna fuck?’  This was standard technique: the female passes and the male strikes at the last possible moment forcing the woman to backtrack if she should dare to object.  I wheeled around, furious. ‘Did you say that?’ He looked around surprised, then defiant ‘Yeah, so what the fuck if I did?’ I raised my Nikon, took aim began to focus.  His eyes darted back and forth, an undercover cop? CLICK.”

Anderson takes the power from her male pursuers, allowing them nothing more than the momentary fear that their depravity has just been captured in a picture.

Got a Girl Crush On: Lady DJ

WNEW-FM 102.7 All Girls Format. In 1966, WNEW-FM adopted an “all-girls” MOR format which included Alison Steele. She was something: beautiful, commanding, a legend. Famous for reciting husky, spoken-word poetry over prog-rock records all night (“The Nightbird”). The above is a promotional flyer from that brief period. It’s from the The New York Radio Archive, a comprehensive archive of free-form, underground FM rock radio from the 1960s - 1970s.

Got a Girl Crush On: Ali Macgraw
One of my favorite movies as a pre-teen was Love Story (heavy shit for a kid, right?). Ali Macgraw was a bookish, nerdy, tomboyish BABE and I adored her owning it. 
P.S. If you’ve never seen Love Story and are due for a good cry—I can guarantee a proper sobfest with this 1970 Arthur Miller classic.
