Wednesday, April 3, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Playing Games with Akiko Matsuura
The term “girl crush” is just a little too twee for our liking, but if we were to throw the term around, out first stop would have to be Comenachi vocalist Akiko Matsuura. We caught up with her in the latest issue of SUPER NASTY, where she spilled her guts on all the best and brightest spots in London. Below, we pull some classic rock-and-hard-place moves on Keex, who tolerated us and our questionnaire gracefully. Love this girl!
Thursday, March 21, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Mia Mania
Meet Pia Mia Perez. She’s cute as could be, got a voice to rival any pop star, and, get this, is really, actually from Guam. Seriously. She did double-duty for us and recorded an original video cover of Rihanna’s “Half Of Me,” then humored us by answering our questions on everything from how to beat the heat this festival season to what quote keeps her motivated so very far from home.

Friday, February 22, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Christine Lai of UNIF
She’s the rainbow-clad grunge fairy behind the ever inspiring sub-culture fashion blog Christeric, and the brilliant mastermind designer behind the iconoclast fashion label UNIF. Maybe you’ve been reading her blog since the days she first handmade these Charles Anastase-inspired early Hellbound prototypes and you’re already as obsessed with her as we are. Today, Christine takes us on an all-access tour of the UNIF headquarters, giving us a glimpse into the method behind their madness. Hint: There’s a lot of handsome furry critters involved…
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Addicted to Love
We asked some of the cutest couples we know across the globe to share their stories about their most romantic moments. Here, they kiss and tell…
Michelle Laine x Yves Berlin
Every day we spend together is romantic, but the most romantic thing we ever did may have been right at the beginning of our relationship. We spent every day together for the first nine days, and then on the tenth day we decided to move in together. That was nearly five years ago!
Marie Marot x Yaz Bukey
For our first Valentine’s Day we went to Yaz’s hometown in Istanbul, where we had a cozy and romantic diner by the Bosphorus. When we came back to our hotel room there were 365 red roses! A red rose a day keeps the doctor away.
Marion Belle x Abigail Bean
Abby is the rarest angel I’ve ever known. She’s been the muse of my love and life since I met her six years ago on Valentine’s Day, driving around LA in her brother’s 1971 ice blue Cutlass Supreme. In the immortal words of Bob Dylan, “She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back.” We always go to Venice on New Year’s Day and dive into the freezing ocean, holding each other’s hand, and start the year by renewing our promises to each other. Here’s a song I wrote, “Remember Waikiki,” inspired by love and Valentine’s Day.
Irina x Keir
Irina and I met on New Year’s Day 2012 in Montreal at a mutual friend’s flat. I had given up and sworn off love and wanted nothing to do with this attractive and boisterous female that came in like a hurricane to the burnt-out atmosphere of an extended New Year’s party where we had been making music. She was walking along the back of the couch—where I was lying with my hood up and spirits low—similar to a cat who sits on the lap of the one person in a room who despises felines. She eventually climbed on to me saying, ” I wanna be on you,” and she stayed on my back like a monkey for hours while I changed records, made tea and even played drums. Eventually we got to talking. The conversation went like this:
Rini: “Who you from?”
Keir: “Is you me?”
It was then that we decided to marry (no sex before marriage), and our friend Beaver, whose house we were occupying at the moment, married us with an impromptu ceremony. We have spent nearly every minute of every day together since, either at home in Montreal or travelling around together. Our anniversary is New Year’s, which makes it easy to remember. And no matter how crazy our adventures get, it would be hard to forget how we met.
Karline x Dennis
I would like to say his proposal was the most romantic thing because it was, not to mention our wedding… But to me I guess the most romantic thing was when he got my name tattooed without telling me beforehand. Considering that’s his only tattoo… yeah, we girls love stuff like that.
