Feel My Love

In recent days, two idiots nice individuals have cited my hatefulness as a moral flaw in my nature (not to mention my blog.)   I will point out yet again that the title of this blog is “Godammit, ‘m Mad! and I’m Getting Madder,” not “Look What I Love.”

However, just to remind anyone who doesn’t know what a fucking cornucopia of love I am, here is a list of fifty people I love, in the order they popped into my brain:

Patti Smith, William Borroughs, Van Morrison, Vermeer, William Bouguereau, Aretha Franklin, Thomas Hardy, Elvis Costello, Edith Wharton, Flaubert, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Kingsley Amis, Mervin Peake, Johnny Depp, Ingrid Bergman, Chris Rock, Richard Feinman, Arthur Lee, Bob Dylan, George Eliot, Amy Winehouse, Denton Welch, Balzac, Vivienne Leigh, Brigitte Bardot, Prince, Amanda Palmer, Donna Summer, Paul Erdos, Frida Kahlo, Bert Jansch, Fred Neil, Iris Murdoch, Joan Armatrading, Tolstoy, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, Oscar Wilde, Karen Horney, Derek & Clive, Neil Young, Tim Buckley, Leonard Cohen. Robert DiNiro, Alice Miller, Yukio Mishima, Ricky Gervais, Larry David, Tony Duquette.

See?

Now, who do you love that I should love too?

    I love Stephen Fry and people who make documentaries exposing the cunitiness of Religious Organisations and other Greedy Individuals.
    I’m sure there are others but my brain is not functioning well today.

  3. Cybill says:

    I’m feeling the love Sister Wolf (and I second adding Stephen Fry to the list).

  4. I’m just so happy you love Edith Wharton she’s in my top 10. I love it when you spread the love (but maybe not as much as when you get the goddam stupid people where it hurts).

  5. dust says:

    I love Sister Wolf and Birdeater!
    You surprised me with some of your love choices, but I get it, some people are just brilliant cunts.

  6. dewayne says:

    fiona apple(i’ve only heard her first album many years ago, and i base this on that), isabelle fuhrman(she played esther in the movie “orphan”), keller williams, chuck palahniuk, christopher moore, kurt vonnegut jr., lamb of god, protest the hero, bruce campbell, jello biafra, the singer of iwrestledabearonce, victor wooten….there are a lot, and these are in no kind of order. i’m done listing, lists are horrible.

  7. i love you sister wolf and i love Vivienne Leigh.

  8. MJ says:

    I was going to add Leonard Cohen, but he’s already there. Leonard, baby, you can come visit me in the blue raincoat any day…. I’m even half Zen, so we can have tea and talk about non-dualism if that works better for you.

    So relieved.

    If you love Kahlo, you might like Remedios Varo.

    I also love, or loved, Paul Muldoon back in his earlier punning phase.

  9. Aimee- WTF! says:

    You listed Neil Young.

    You’re dead to me.

    Also, this happy, giving everyone a pat on the back at all times because they’re “doin’ a great job and are unique and special flowers”

    Yeah. That mentality? That mentality can go fuck itself with the hells of one of Sea of Shoes’ most hideous pumps.

    You’re not negative. Just a realist. You’re toughening those girls up. Because when the Zombie Apocalypse comes, in their present states they will be the first to go. Wondering “why hose fugly mooks with bad skin aren’t worshipping me like my blog fans do” as they’re getting their brains chewed out.

  10. You’re on my list Sister!

  11. OMGGMAB says:

    I love you, Sister. The forum you have created gives me an outlet for my disatisfaction, anger, and frustration. For those who think it is too hateful, go http://www.iamalwayssof‘nhappy.com.

  12. Jill says:

    Vermeer, Amy Winehouse, Vivienne Leigh, Prince, Frida Kahlo, Leonard Cohen, Tony Duquette…we share the love.

    Also, Eartha Kitt, KD Lang, Leonor Fini, Luisa Casati, Nina Flowers, Sinead O’Connor, Javier Bardem, Remedios Varos (already listed), family, friends, fellow bloggers, puppies, kittens, unicorns and rainbows.

  13. Dru says:

    Nancy and Jessica Mitford (I think you’ll find the former particularly appealing, even though she is British and I seem to recall your objecting to Daphne Guinness’s accent- the Mitford sisters are her great-aunts and grandmother).

    Also, Bardot? I hope it’s her looks you love, and not her racist cuntish views..

  14. Dru says:

    I must also add: J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter! You might not concur, though)

  15. Ann says:

    Dewayne – mad props on the mention of Victor Wooten, who is without peer on the bass. But I do know that Sister Wolf hates Chuck P and the horse he rode in on.

    Most everyone I love is dead. Rob Sheffield is one exception that immediately comes to mind.

  16. erika says:

    I’m stealing your artwork. I LOVE it!!!
    To Love – Anais Nin, Jorge Luis Borges, CS Lewis

    Also perfection is not perfect kindness, it is being yourself.

  17. Audi says:

    I’m going to add Hunter S. Thompson, Henry Darger, Sean Penn (who could fail to love someone who enjoys beating up the paparazzi?), and Ida Lupino.

  18. Stella Mayfair says:

    i love kahlo, too.
    and kinski.
    tom ford.
    and sexist dirty old bukowski. hunter s. thompson.
    anais nin, of course.
    the marchesa casati. weimar berlin seductress extraordinaire anita berber.
    anita pallenberg and marianne faithfull.
    carine roitfeld.

    you. who couldn’t?

  19. dex says:

    Mark Twain, the best that America has ever produced.. and perhaps the first modern human being.

    “Wagner’s music is better than it sounds.”

    “Life after death? I was dead for millions of years before I was born and it never inconvenienced me a bit.”

    “Masturbation? There’s no money in it.”
    (..but he never saw a Madonna concert..)

  20. PeaceBwithU says:

    I love YOU SW along with all those you love and those that Dru ,Jill,erika,Aimee,OMGGMAB,and any of those that I missed love. I am so fucking full of love I make myself sick.

  21. talisa says:

    I love your artwork……… I want it!!!!!!

  22. Iron Chic says:

    Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.

  23. theresa says:

    I love lady gaga

    and I hate bitches who quote eternal sunshine of the spotless mind (the quote about nice people) as though they came up with it and then try to fuck your boyfriend (later telling you that you can’t blame them because they warned you.)

  24. HelOnWheels says:

    I love your blog, SW. Other than that I’m too lazy to make a list soooo…I hate everything that’s not on my love/like list. But I especially hate idiots that think not being “nice” = morally impaired. WTF is entailed in being “nice” anyway??!! It’s different for each of us. I think I’ll add those types of f*ckwits to my “I will shoot you in the face if I ever meet you” list.

  25. Bevitron says:

    Wow, Sister Wolf – Karen Horney, yes! Strong reinforcement to previously mentioned Stephen Fry, Mark Rothko & Mark Twain. I’ll throw in Mitchell & Webb.

  26. Miranda says:

    Tina Fey

  27. kate says:

    THE STATUE OF LIBERTY

    Miranda – YES, Tina Fey, a goddess.

    I forgot George Bernard Shaw:

    “Do not do unto others as you would have them do unto you. They may not have the same taste.”
