So… I don’t remember exactly what happened…
All I remember Is putting on one of GalaxC Girl’s hats, and everything got funky and blurry from there on out… I woke up, some hours later, with a page full of words in front of me, which led me to believe that I had, indeed, finished the interview with GalaxC Girl that I had intended to write from the get-go… Now, aside from momentary bouts of tasting bright colors (yellow tastes like blueberries) as well as the occasional psychedelic flashback that I’m a four-armed super-hyphy panda-bird from the future, everything has returned to normal. But, perhaps this is not a hallucination. Maybe I was always a hyphy panda-bird, I just never realized it until GalaxC Girl and her magical bag full of head gear came along?
It’s not the first time I’ve been drugged during an interview, and probably, not the last…
Well, as I said, words had appeared before me, revealing an interview with a DJ who has been captivating EDM audiences with her crazy performances for years! She has sold out shows all over the place, from big outside events to club across the country, as her selection and destruction of psychedelic crunk’d-out glitch-hop and bass draws a packed audience wherever she goes. Her fans get will get hardcore and flash their awesome GalaxC Girl tattoos for you, as GalaxC Girl works hard as hell to make sure the showcase you’re witnessing is completely unforgettable and inspiring. Also, rumor has it, she can fly.
Anyway, let’s get to the interview!
StrangeFlow: So what’s the deal with the hats, GalaxC Girl? What set it off? At what point did your creative energy start flowing into into these magical crunked out head-toppers?
GalaxC Girl: I’ve always made all kinds of art. Including lots of edible art and wearable art. Especially wearable art. I’ve sewn clothes for a long time stitching art on fabric. I call it tattooing fabric. Hehe. I wanted a dope hat and although I’d never really painted much before, I knew it would be easier than painting cakes with frosting so I painted myself a sweet Hunab Ku and everyone was flipping out over it…so I figured if peeps were so down, why not bust some out for sale to have actual, authentic GalaxC Girl merchandise for the merch booth at my shows for my fans/supporters. Y’know, original art by me instead of factory manufactured art. Some of them get snatched as soon as I post them to my facebook page and never make it to a show but I’m trying to bust out enough to have at least a few at my shows.
SF: I love the R2-D2 ones, which one is your favorite?
GX: Oh I love the R2 too! I knew I wanted to do that before I ever even ordered the first batch of blank lids! I couldn’t believe I’d never seen one before and knew it would be the shit! I was literally squealing with delight as I painted that one.
SF: Do you have a favorite?—or is that like asking you which one is your favorite kid?
GX: Haha, I cannot pick a favorite! I’ve totally referred to my hats as my kids and the people buying them as adoptive parents. I want visitation rights, pictures, stories and updates of their life
SF: If you had as many kids as you have hats, do you think you’d just say ‘fuck it’ and choose a favorite kid? (Cuz I would… )
GX: Gosh. Haha. I don’t know. The “gear whore” hat is pretty damn awesome as ever.
SF: How much do the hats cost?
GX: I did the first few for a super special introductory price of the sacred Maya number 52. That wasn’t really feasible and even at $75 that’s still below minimum wage (I accept tips for anyone so inclined). But I’m doing it for the love and to get dope original art on my favorite peoples (my supporters) heads to give them maximum pimptitude levels as they make the world a brighter place by displaying artful reminders of the beautiful, complex nature and imagination of the cosmos.
SF: And what increased percentage of funk will people attain by wearing these?
GX: Infinite percentage!
SF: I must say, that sounds correct. I feel the funky part of my brain burning with delight and excitement. Also, I am starting to hear shapes. They’re really getting loud, by the way.. Should I be worried? Or is this just kinda… you know… kinda just, ‘how it goes,’ when someone tries on one of your colorful head-toppers?
GX: I think you tried one of my hats on and it inspired your pineal gland to release DMT into your brain!
SF: Ah. Well, then. That would explain a lot. I wonder if the world is ready for this… So anyway, as far as these hats go, do you have any new ones you’re working on at the moment? Would you be willing to hint at what’s in store?
GX: Yes! So excited! Almost finished with another Egyptian kind of theme. With a scarab holding a stargate portal with two winged cat guardians so that the wings are on the side of your head. So your brain can take off and fly! To another GalaxC! Or anywhere in the universe!
And, I have a huge circuit fetish and have started a circuit hat! Flippin stoked on it. It’s gonna look sweet as fuck in blacklight!
SF: It all has a very unique style… I feel like it’s spirituality mixed with bass music mixed with science fiction… Did I hit the nail on the head with that assessment? …or did the nail hit ME on the head? Am I completely wrong??
GX: Haha, yes! You and the nail are ONE!
SF: Any final thoughts or recipes for everyone?
GX: The hats/caps of planets (aka the poles) they look like frickin vortexes! Have you guys checked that shit out!? Omg!! Google image any of the planets poles, it’s so amazing!!
