I posted Peter Bjorn & John’s “Nothing to Talk About” music video on MotoLady yesterday… today I got a little distracted watching Japanese rockabilly gangs such as the Black Shadows and the Levels. The Black Shadows and the boss of the gang were featured in the music video. 
Anywho… saw this chick… look at her breaking ALL the rules of Japanese culture. First of all, the rockabilly clubs are already saying fuck you to Japanese norms, they’re loud, ride motorcycles, do whatever the hell they want… dancing in the park and generally causing a ruckus. To take it one step further, instead of dressing up in a poodle skirt, this girl is rockin’ a leather jacket, black skinny jeans, and a pomp.
She might be my new hero.

A woman’s highest calling is to lead a man to his soul, so as to unite him with the source. Her lowest calling is to seduce, separating his soul and leave him aimlessly wandering. A man’s highest calling is to protect woman, so she is free to walk the earth unharmed. Man’s lower calling is to ambush and force his way into the life of a woman.
