“We know that stores are scary. Sometimes you can’t tell if the clothes are for men or women, either! You probably don’t even know where the good stores are! It’s not your fault. There’s always one more level of privilege to break into. You’re just not there yet. And then every time you go into Louis Vuitton it’s full of rich black people and you get uncomfortable and leave. “How are there so many rich black people!” you wonder. And where did all these chic Koreans come from? Wow, shouldn’t someone gin up a startup that serves people who aren’t white socially incompetent overly paid coders someday? Probably someone should. Big world out there. Oh right, the fashion world already did! Serving a diverse international crowd! That’s why they make billions and billions of dollars. Unlike most startups! Which don’t make anything! Haha! Right??? Anyway, you’re too busy to shop. All that VC ass-kissing takes a lot of time. ”
“The bill to expand Florida’s notorious Stand Your Ground law became law Friday, after Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a measure that immunizes individuals who fire or point a gun in self-defense or as a “warning” from criminal penalty.”-
Fuck everything about this.(via wilwheaton) How much longer until everyone in Florida shots each other and we can just reboot the state?
“People are wearing fleece, which is a hard fabric to be angry in.”-Carrie Brownstein, on whether "Portlandia" is offensive to Portlanders. (via putthison)
I remember one time, a bunch of years ago, I bought a pair of suede bucks from Jesse Thorne, and when I got them I realized they were actually not a matched pair. They were the same rule, but clearly from two different pairs of shoes.
So I emailed Jesse and I was like listen, this is what happened…it’s not a big deal…you can barely tell any way… And he says “I’m just impressed someone from Portland is wearing shoes at all.”
“'A picture is what it is,' he says when I ask him why he no longer wishes to talk about individual photographs, 'and I've never noticed that it helps to talk about them, or answer specific questions about them, much less volunteer information in words. It wouldn't make any sense to explain them. Kind of diminishes them. People always want to know when something was taken, where it was taken, and, God knows, why it was taken. It gets really ridiculous. I mean, they're right there, whatever they are.'”-
