The scan above is suddenly popping up all over the Internet. Or maybe it’s always been there and I only just noticed. It’s from Sassy magazine, September 1992, in which Kim Gordon gives her recipe for “Tuna Tacos Culver City.” Apparently “Eat This” was a regular feature.
Clearly Kim’s fantasy that tacos are less calorific that sandwich bread is indeed a fantasy, but lord knows she’s always looked trim and attractive so whatever she’s eating it’s not bulking her up. In fact I occasionally feel she looks as though somebody should give her a sandwich. Not Thurston Moore, obviously, at this point in marital history.
Did I ever tell you about the time I stood in line next to Kim Gordon, waiting for the lavatory at Tonic, in New York? Witty exchanges with the stars? I let her go first - she was next on the bill, and hell I wanted her to get on stage and start. “I’m quick she said.” And she didn’t lie.
