Blogs that really know themselves are few and far between. Lynn & Horst, an online platform for Helmut Lang adoration, all things avant-garde fashion, and beautiful things of questionable taste (paradoxical as that is), has stood the test of time and established itself as a leopard-print adorned favourite of mine. Outspoken when it comes to opinion, Horst has written frankly on everything from Kitten Love to the humble German Wurst, as well as interviewed big-time menswear designers like Tim Hamilton.

Mysteriously, I am somehow attracted to carboot kidnap scenes. Therefore, one of my favourite film moments derives from the movie Jackie Brown (Quentin Tarantino, 1997). Here, you follow a car and suddenly gain a look into its back load in a trashy x-ray special effect manner. The body appears strangely folded and it always fascinated me how to fit the square space. Quentin Tarantino probably first evoked this feeling inside of me – and has used its aesthetic core principle over and over again in his movies.

Lulz, you can't have a carboot scene without Chris Tucker's Chicken and Waffles in "Jackie Brown."
