Dadcore is inspired by the wardrobe of the man who gave up on fashion when he became a father. Ostensibly its a wardrobe full of practical, comfortable, yet sadly dated clothes, but the concepts behind it and how it has arisen are interesting. Unlike most fashion trends - which are inspired by moncler outlet uk film, musicians or workwear - the idea of dadcore came from comedy one-liners and sketches that developed into internet jokes and memes before being seen on the catwalks. It began at the turn of the noughties with a reference in the 2000 film adaptation of Nick Hornby's High Fidelity. Jack Black's character Barry calls out John Cusack's Rob for wearing "the pandora outlet worst fucking sweater I've ever seen. That's a Cosby sweater. A COSBY SWEATER." The line screeches out of Black's mouth with exaggerated disgust over a maroon, beige and brown striped jumper. Of course, 16 years later, with sexual assault charges against him, that's a whole different sort of insult, but back then Bill Cosby's name cheap mcm backpack was synonymous with America's favourite dad. If there is a text that sets up the caricature behind dadcore more perfectly, it's hard to think of one. Hornby's novel-turned-film was a bearded Bon Iver-esque hymn replica louis vuitton to lost youth and a calcifying life crisis. Wearing a jazzy sweater at that point - thanks to Noel Edmonds, Carlton from The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air and Gyles Brandreth - marks you out as a man who doesn't care if he looks like a fuddy-duddy.
Despina has double rooms and apartments to rent close to Spiros Taverna 97 and mini–market, about 50 metres down the road in the hamlet of Kellia.
All the rooms have a private bathroom and there is air–conditioning, central heating, TVs and wifi internet, plus kitchenettes with fridges (either private or shared). The rooms either have a private balcony or open on to the veranda – where jasmine, bouganvillea and roses grow. There is excellent off–road parking and great views from the back of the house of the mountains in the north of the island, including the Pantokrator.
The family have their own taxi business which can be booked for collection from the airport, and of course the sad business of return at the end of your stay! Despina can arrange car and scooter hire for your stay.
The rooms are 200 metres or so in each direction from a couple of bus stops: Glyfada Beach is on the route just south east, and Ermones Beach to the north west (almost certainly where Odysseus washed ashore when he met Princess Nausicaa). Corfu town itself is about 30 minutes away by (air–conditioned!) bus.
