In a fashionable and non-conformist manner I have guided your lives these four months in Uppsala. Without a doubt in my mind I am convinced that I can set most of you free in the wild and untamed world of hipsters and fashion-fails. Most of you are now educated enough to continue your quest for the ultimate voguish lifestyle. Just remember; every goodbye makes the next hello closer. But before the final farewell, I present you with your final fashgasm. This time with a twist…
I will present each one of our dedicated followers with a personal L&L Award, fitting to their personality, style and history.
It seems suitable to give the first award to someone whom you’ve all learned to love through the blog, as she was the first and most mentioned devotee. For her incredible biking skills, acrobatic technique and gracious faceplanting, the Biker-Babe Award goes to Annie.
The second award goes to someone who finally learned that combining colors is not in her nature and has decided to go with another approach. For having an exclusively pink, hello-kitty-based closet, Carola receives the Pink-Porn Award.
Up next, is a legendary musketeer, whose alluring charisma gets people to journey for days into the wilderness of Uppsala’s outskirts. Hanri, please accept the Forest-Troll Award.
Another frequent guest in your fashgasms, is a German who really understands the meaning of facial décor, whether it is with an advertisement or leopard-print glasses. I am proud to present the Glorious-Glasses Award to Lodda.
One that has reMarked himself as a pimp, and an enjoyer of fine, milk-based delights, accompanied by a Russian roulette of rock clubs and pubs, needs to pick up his White-Russian Award at the superMark(et).
As a fierce, almost fanatic, follower of beats, a true dancer of the Club of Uppsala, you always know where to find this fine lady. Enjoying the stairs she’s getting, I hope Liony will be honored to receive Voguish-Värmlands Award.
Being gay for a day is okay, if your bro gets a hoe to kiss under the mistletoe. The next guy who has to pick up an epic L&L Award, should also pick up his purple scarf and honor the bro code as he does so well. Justus is hereby entitled with the Scarfed-Wingman Award.
For hosting epic parties in her kitchen, you would think that our next candidate, Inka, would be rewarded for best host. I mean, she even hires a ‘famous couple’ for audio entertainment. But for gruesome misconduct and straight up misuse of her kitchen, she will have to accept the Friday-Cookies Award.
Some people are better than others, and we would like to reward these kind of people accordingly. Hence our next nominee is awarded two L&L’s. For being a beacon of fashionable facial hair, as well as enlightening our lives with the brilliant beat of her box, Mira, step up and receive both the Best-Mustache Award and the Best-Beatboxer Award.
Finally, our last grant of the evening, goes to someone who, by times, has deprived us of her astonishing presence. For not being there, the Unattending Award goes to Sahuni.
So here we are, my disciples. All reigns must come to an end. And just as a mighty kingdom has to fall for a new dictator to rise from the ashes, I have to pass on the torch for a new beacon to enlighten your eyes. I can’t tell you where to look for it, but the knowledge you have obtained from reading Longboards and Latté should be sufficient. This is truly the end of an era, an age of nonconformism and vogue, but it has been my honor to grant you my wisdom. It was a lot of work but that’s okay because I like work. It fascinates me. I sit and look at it for hours. So here we are, the song has almost ended, but remember; the melody lingers on.
Heming (Norrlands Award) and Erwin (Pink-Dress Award)
Ps. Biologically speaking, if something bites you, it is more likely to be female.Or German 😉
