Happy Birthday Stevie... From Dr. Seth

Hello, Seth here...May 26th is a bit of an event for myself and even for some of us here at the shop. It is the date on which Our Lady, Stevie Nicks was brought into the world. Her following is more than just a fan base. It is a highly devoted, or as we say "hopelessly enchanted" bunch of "poets, legends, and priests of nothing". Her tribe has a well developed and thought out language, aesthetic, iconography, and culture. We see things through our filters. A scarf on a lamp or a hanky hemline skirt in any setting is instantly noticed. This brings up the point that nobody else can take simple fabric and turn it into a living impressionist painting. The closest thing I can compare it to is the following of the Grateful Dead, but this is on a much more emotional level. Much like The Dead's following, if it has to be explained, you won't understand. A simple twirl or gesture will stop our breath; anyone else will roll their eyes and wonder what just happened.
