Things That Make Me Go Hmmm...Part One
Scandi-bollocks. I'm as guilty as anyone of using it (see above) but the whole aesthetic occasionally seems sinister - whitewashed walls, willowy blondes, scented bloody candles. It's pretty much how I imagine Magda Goebbels decorated the bunker in Berlin. Also, the current style bible is called Kinfolk, which let’s face it, sounds exactly like a magazine published by the KKK. I also feel that Scandi-bollocks massively underplays Denmark's true areas of expertise - intensive pig farming and Carlsberg Special Brew.
Social Media. David Koresh had "followers".
