Swanktrendz is a Vancouver ezine that promotes current music/ trends/ fads/fashions/ as well as the fine and performing arts. We have a variety of contributors from around the world who post to the ezine, and we have been administering swanktrendz.com for a number of years. Enjoy.
As for me - I do the majority of the final posting on behalf of the contributors (so yes, I get all the blame for bad editing). My interests, tastes, etc. are extremely varied in that I enjoy a lot of things from Saint Saéns, 'Danse Macabre' to Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. I can enjoy a badly acted movie (if in the right mood) and also a movie (preferable) where I have to actually think, rather than lay back and be entertained.
In music, I am on a morose Placebo kick, having followed the band's music for a few years. However, they aren't producing a lot of new songs, so I may have to look elsewhere until they ante up something new. I will always be faithful to a select few - Bowie being one and Concrete Blonde (particularly Johnette).
architecture and decor, fine and performing arts, movies, music, popular culture
I love all music.., My favourite genre (if I had to choose) would be alternative, almost all.., but I am open-minded enough to listen to a suggested artist, can't say country is an all time favourite, etc., goth, indie, industrial, punk, well
