It’s that magical time of year again! The Believer’s annual film issue has hit newsstands, and this time it includes an interview with Harmony Korine (”Goldfish swallowers, pygmies—to me, that’s the greatest thing in life”), an essay on seven unproduced screenplays by famous intellectuals, an interview with Charlyne Yi, a dispatch about Iranian cinema (”Watching Shrek in Tehran”—you can read that one online here) and, best of all, a DVD featuring six short films by Karpo Godina, a Yugoslavian filmmaker whose early short films are collected on DVD for the first time here.

Plus more! So much more. Scope out the table of contents here, get stoked, and buy yourself a copy or two.

X-Girl ‘94

Kim Gordon designed it, Chloë Sevigny worked the runway, Mike Mills drew the logo, Kathleen Hannah pimped it out, and Spike helped run the fashion show. X-Girl was a perfect storm of creative energy in 1994, and here’s the very Nineties video to prove it:

If that’s not enough nostalgia for you, how about a Vice Magazine photo shoot with Chloë showing off the X-Girl line? Still begging for more? Here’s Vice’s interview with co-designer Daisy Von Furth, where she talks about styling some “cute kid” named Mark Ronson in a photo shoot for Spike’s Dirt magazine, and mentions that Chloë will soon be starring in some movie written by “this kid Harmony Korine.” Also: Doc Martens, flannel and black skinny jeans are so out in ‘94. Which, if I’m predicting the trend cycles correctly, means you’d be wise to invest in some ringer tees and vintage X-Girl before the kids on Gossip Girl start sporting A-line minis.
