Personality Playlist: Enid & Rebecca

By Jacqueleen Eng ’19

I’m starting a new type of playlist where I select songs I think fit characters from books, films, shows, my imagination, etc. and they will from here on out be called ~Personality Playlists~

To start, I thought I’d pick some of my favorite badass 90s girls Enid Coleslaw and Rebecca Doppelmeyer from Daniel Clowes’ comic book series Eightball and later their own novel, Ghost World (which was also turned into a cult classic movie starring a young Scarjo and Thora Birch and the charming Steve Buscemi)

The series follows the witty, sarcastic, and slightly depressed girls in their boring suburban town after they graduate high school. They wear a lot of plaid skirts and Doc Martens and would probably end up at a school a lot like Kenyon studying studio art/sociology and graduating and then living above a venue in an up-and-coming part of Brooklyn. I thought girl-grunge bands like Daddy Issues and classic 90s indie like Pavement would represent them well.
