1982

Unos ETs adictos a las sustancias que largamos durante el orgasmo aterrizan en Manhattan y empiezan a matar a los personajes en el momento en que acaban. La peli, en cuya banda sonora se utilizó el primer sampler/synthesizer digital, es liquid sky: para nosotros fue un instant cult classic, por que conyugaba la ética + la estética del under a la perfección. Su protagonista bisexual, Margaret, era parecida a la diosa de mi amiga Harlan, que me llevaba a danceteria y me regalaba vinilos de echo & the bunnymen. Teníamos 16, y Harlan fue mi primer amor femme: andrógina, transgresiva, brava, new wave...impecable.



Aliens addicted to the hormones we release during orgasm land on a rooftop in manhattan and start abducting humans when they come. The movie, whose soundtrack featured the first digital sampler/synthesizer, is liquid sky: it became an instant cult classic, because it embodied the underground ethic & esthetic to perfection. Its bisexual heroine, Margaret, was a lot like my friend Harlan, a tall blonde goddess from connecticut who took me to danceteria and gave me echo & the bunnymen records. We were sixteen, and Harlan was my first femme crush: androgynous, transgressive, ballsy, utterly new wave...absolutely flawless.

"I was taught that one should be fashionable, and that to be fashionable is to be androgynous. And I am androgynous no less than David Bowie himself..."
