In honor of July 4th, we pay tribute to the boldest stripes, the brightest stars, and the bravest hearts of our Great Republic (?). From Realtree and Lana Del Rey to Kapital and William Bradford, we wander the vast spectrum of Americana in our contemporary culture. Official Texas state historian Light Townsend Cummins unpacks the archetype of the cowboy for Sam, Alexi announces her political candidacy, Biz destigmatizes the hot dog, and much, much more!‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Image board: https://pin.it/6OIv11ULinks: -GQ on the Rise of Realtreehttps://www.gq.com/story/rise-of-realtree--"Homos on the Range" https://truewestmagazine.com/old-west-homosexuality-homos-on-the-range/-Vanity Fair on the New Right https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2022/04/inside-the-new-right-where-peter-thiel-is-placing-his-biggest-bets -Books by Light Townsend Cumminshttps://www.amazon.com/History-Light-Townsend-Cummins-Books/s?rh=n%3A9%2Cp_27%3ALight+Townsend+Cummins

Ep. 24: The Snapocalypse

2022-05-2701:34:22

In this episode, the mischievous Snapchat ghost comes to haunt us, resurfacing memories of Kylie Lip Kits, Gucci flip flops, and steering wheel selfies. It was the end of the 2010s, the late 2010s, and everyone was so happy: shameless clickbait, globalist pop music, multicultural baddies, and athleisure fetishism ruled supreme. We go straight to the source of the impeccable vibes that paved the way for the Internet as we know it today. ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Image board: https://pin.it/rXdkIFZLinks: -"It was the end of the 60s" TikToks https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZTdnvQVut/-Pre-order "Non-Things" by Byung Chul-Han https://www.amazon.com/Non-things-Upheaval-Lifeworld-Byung-Chul-Han/dp/1509551700-"The Age of Instagram Face" by Jia Tolentinohttps://www.newyorker.com/culture/decade-in-review/the-age-of-instagram-face-DJ Khaled gets lost at sea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMHCW1RIqBk -"The Social Photo" by Nathan Jurgensonhttps://www.amazon.com/Social-Photo-Photography-Media/dp/1786635445/ref=sr_1_1?crid=ULU51RDZI9KW&keywords=the+social+photo&qid=1653608431&s=books&sprefix=the+social+photo%2Cstripbooks%2C109&sr=1-1Our YouTube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCWuRssGx4uEnApRjiukYpT-8uWpAB4j7Special shoutout to TikTok user @soggywwaffles who never ceases to inspire us!

This week’s episode dissects the formidable cultural impact of music festivals. We discuss the rise and fall of flower crowns, the anglophone influence on boho-chic, the mournful trajectory of Vanessa Hudgens’s life, all culminating in a heated debate about shoe shining and Sugar Bear Hair gummies. ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Image Board:https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-23-coachella/Links:Bye Sisterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbMcq3VXmG0Sleevelesshttps://www.amazon.com/Sleeveless-Fashion-2011-2019-Semiotext-Native/dp/1635900964Harmony Korine interviewed by Mark Kellyhttp://www.harmony-korine.com/paper/int/hk/kelley.htmlWikipedia article on Boho-chichttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boho-chic

Ep. 22: Mass Bushwick

2022-04-2101:03:03

In this episode, we reflect on our days at warehouse raves, zine fairs, and house shows to bring you a categorical history of Mass Bushwick, a cultural movement that has expanded far beyond its namesake locale. We chronicle its infectious rise through avant-pop stars, meme pages, and fashion editorials; we discuss the methodology of "turning looks" and the high stakes of club kid nightlife; and we offer our advice to those undergoing the transformative effects of the bleached brow/mullet combo.  ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Image Board:https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-22-mass-bushwick/ Links: Rihanna's 2017 PAPER cover shoot: https://www.papermag.com/rihanna-paper-2293524292.html?rebelltitem=6#rebelltitem6Luke Blovad's TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@lukeblovad?lang=enSpinal Fluid Fits: https://www.instagram.com/spinalfluid.fits/Biz's blog post on turning looks: https://sherbert.biz/2016-2017

Ep. 21: The Muse-ical

2022-03-1001:21:47

In this episode, prompted by Julia Fox's vocal fry soundbite heard around the world, we question what it really means to be a muse. We reflect on the concept's history – recurring characters include toxic gay besties, troubled aristocrat party-girls, and poetic simps of the 19th century – and ponder the future of creative relationships and divine inspiration. ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Links:Image board:https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-21-the-nymphet-alumni-muse-ical/ Biz's i-D essay on the fashion archetype:https://i-d.vice.com/en_uk/article/5dbgpk/gen-z-fashion-muse-trend 
Broadcasting live from the Island of the Lost Boys, we bring to you (with humble hearts) a definitive history of the Xandemic period of the 2010s. We discuss the dark underbelly of suburban adolescent malaise, the goblin-hooliganism of Odd Future, the masculine pathologies portrayed in HBO's "Euphoria," and the Benzodiazepinite foundations on which the American suburbs were built... all while dodging real-life bullets in a mysterious Austin parking lot. ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Links:Complex Investigates the Whereabouts of Earl Sweatshirt:https://www.complex.com/music/2011/04/complex-exclusive-we-found-earl-sweatshirtSpecial Immersive Recommended Listening Playlist:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCWuRssGx4uFyKfdg8PNqoewE2HKCOB_IImage Board:https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-20-dark-suburbia-and-the-xandemic/
On the first episode of this grand and blessed New Year, we reflect on the Twee phenomenon and its controversial yet adorkable revival. We discuss the everlasting omnipresence of the Twee lifestyle, the aesthetic’s anachronistic child-grandma garb, the pursuit of education for leisure, and the benefits of fetishizing physical media.‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿Image board:https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-19-twee/Links:Twee: The Gentle Revolution by Marc Spizy https://archive.org/details/tweegentlerevolu0000spit/mode/1up?view=theaterZooey Deschanel's Tok: https://www.tiktok.com/@zooeydeschanel
In this special holiday episode, we put on our rose-colored glasses and evoke the shopping malls of our youth to identify a saccharine, age-regressive genus of commodity fetishism hereby known as Sugar Cookie Consumerism. Strolling with a metaphorical Cinnabon in hand, we discuss pre-Stories Instagram, the epidemic of teen pregnancy in the 2000s — 2010s, dessert-scented bath and body products, financial illiteracy, One Direction-era Anglophilia, and Victoria’s Secret PINK as the ultimate girlhood brand. Happy holidays and thank you for an amazing year!! <3 le Nymphet Alumni ♡(つˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ³ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥)つ⊂( ͡ᵔ ྌ ͡ᵔ ⊂)♡‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿︵‿︵ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ・❉・ ʚ˚̣̣̣͙ɞ‿︵‿︵‿LinksImage board: https://pin.it/7gSQUxYThe Arcades Project by Walter Benjamin: https://monoskop.org/images/e/e4/Benjamin_Walter_The_Arcades_Project.pdfMoar examplesPinterest documenting 2010s aesthetics: https://pin.it/V82xx6GTikToks:https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd62x6jo/https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd62fHca/https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd62PLSn/https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd625mv8/https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd62BGkg/

On this week’s episode, we discuss the social media spectacle of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s whirlwind romance. We analyze the Spiritual Bimbo archetype, dabble in feminism as we reflect on the misogyny of 2000s Hollywood, and consider the timeless appeal of dating a boy in a band. Biz comes out as a burnt out Megan Fox truther, we psychoanalyze Megan’s outfits, and together we phone in a request to get ‘dickmatized’ included in the DSM-5..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・Links:Image references for this episode (essential viewing!!!): https://pin.it/adAWRaUMegan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly profile in GQ: https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/culture/article/megan-fox-machine-gun-kelly-interviewTransformers crew open letter to Megan: https://deadline.com/2009/09/transformers-crew-talk-back-to-megan-fox-15879/
Happy Fall, y’all! On today’s episode, we discuss the impact of the divisive American female archetype-turned-meme: Christian Girl Autumn. We dive into the domestic coziness of mommy blogging, Target’s neo-hearth-and-home merchandising, growing up in proximity to youth group sex cults, and the infallible glam of crypto-Mormon influencers. Following our spiritual tithes to the reigning queens of fall The Pioneer Woman and Miss Christian Girl Autumn herself, Caitlin Covington, we wage war against Phoebe Bridgers and the notion of ‘spooky season,’ question the efficacy of ‘chosen families,’ forecast Protestant work ethic-chic as the next esoteric aesthetic, and doxx our Starbucks orders.. ⋅ ˚̣- : ✧ : – ⭒ ⊹ ⭒ – : ✧ : -˚̣⋅ .. ⋅ ˚̣- : ✧ : – ⭒ ⊹ ⭒ – : ✧ : -˚̣⋅ .. ⋅ ˚̣- : ✧ : – ⭒ ⊹ ⭒ – : ✧ : -˚̣⋅ .Links:Image references for this episode (essential viewing!!!): https://www.pinterest.com/nymphetalumni/ep-15-christian-girl-autumn/Domestic Cozy by Venkatesh Rao: https://www.ribbonfarm.com/series/domestic-cozy/Christian Girl Autumn meme explainer: https://www.vox.com/culture/2019/8/14/20804030/christian-girl-autumn-meme-hot-girl-summer-explainedBiz’s essays on alt-trad fashion and Godposting:https://i-d.vice.com/en_uk/article/g5b4d9/catholicism-alt-fashion-trend-think-piecehttps://various-artists.com/godposting/Caitlin Covington’s blog: https://www.southerncurlsandpearls.com/ The Pioneer Woman: https://www.thepioneerwoman.com/ (she’s on tour rn...)
Surprise nymplets!! Following our exegesis on nepotism babies, we remained haunted by a few unanswered questions… so we decided to seek an expert’s opinion. On today’s episode, we welcome our first ever boy guest: renowned nepo model expert, notorious casting director, and all-around silly rabbit, Walter Pearce! ʕ≧ᴥ≦ʔWalter helps us get to the bottom of the My Year of Rest and Relaxation waif nepo model Twitter complex once and for all. We also discuss Walt’s accidental journey into thinspo Pinterest, the contemporary history of the nepo model, socialism and the Sad Clown Girl-phenotype, and whether models are actually less hot than they were a few decades ago (Walter admits he may have something to do with this ಠ_ಠ)..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。..・。.・゜✭・.・You can find Walter wherever thin beautiful women are located and also...Wet Brain podcast: https://www.patreon.com/wetbrain/Substack: https://walterpearce.substack.com/Instagram: https://instagram.com/walterpearce?utm_medium=copy_linkTwitter: https://twitter.com/walt_knows_best?s=21

Ep. 13: Nepotism Babies

2021-09-2101:12:47

On today’s episode, we discuss the phenomenal appeal of nepotism. Are Tim Burton vibes so strong that they spiritually transferred themselves onto the Depp family genetic code? Why is Bella Hadid’s botched Aphex Twin realness so transcendently beautiful? Is the biohacked former ugly duckling (Kylie) more resilient than the low-maintenance white girl (Kendall)? These are just a few of the hard-hitting questions we ask during this exegesis of the reluctantly glamorous nepo baby.Episode image board: https://pin.it/4NnJz0R (Warning: contains many nepo baby pix)
On this week’s episode, we discuss legendary Tumblr-era thot brand OMIGHTY and the twisted world of text post and t-shirt feminism. We also explore the legacy of seapunk and the scene girl diaspora, the nihilism of 2010s music festival culture, and the cultural gluttony of millennial humor.

Following the Great Nymphet Alumni Hiatus of July 2021, we consider the vampire gf, examining why everyone’s dressing like characters from Twilight and The Vampire Diaries. We discuss how this trend signals a new era of modesty and the end of the eternally exposed midriff, classify the symptoms of Unremarkable Brunette Protagonist Syndrome, and wax poetic about the power of Converse, camisoles and sweater paws. We also break down the forces behind the revival of late aughts fashion and reveal ourselves to be long torso fetishists in the lineage of Ingres and Alexander McQueen. Thanks so much Sarah Y for the episode request <3Links:Twilight / Bella Swan outfits: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKq3rb4/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKqoyvJ/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKbdYGq/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKqTr3G/The Vampire Diaries / Elena Gilbert outfits: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKbj2Tv/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKbFs1v/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKq3tw2/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKbSAXs/https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdKqEHq6/
