A note on Fashion

Nobody puked at the Kate Nash show!  Score!  I like her voice, but her genre's a fad and this style of dressing like a 4 year old has got to stop.  It makes my job difficult.  "I see you're drinking, are you over 21?" --   "Of course, I'm 37!" -- "Oh, it's just that you're dressed like a 4 year old going to her baptism. I'm sure you can understand my confusion."

Hack websites like Sartorialist are all about this fashion that I've termed "18th century homeless child".  Everyone is dressing like they sell "papes" on the corner and work in the coal mines on the weekend.  Sure, some parts of those outfits are neat, I like a jaunting cap, and reinforce those trouser knees!  But haggard ass ugly shoes that you paid 70 bucks for, just to look like you're wearing jazz dance boots while working at a nursing home?!

I can't say i'm thrilled with the way things are going.  Are we going to just see-saw back and forth for the next century?  Enact, repeal, enact, repeal.  Do people really think we have some gung-ho gun slinger in office doing things no one wants?

Is the only way to combat this to yell louder than the next guy?  To get some entertainer to corral people to another point of view by talking down to them?  Except the speakers I'm referencing (Beck, Rush, etc) aren't talking down.  I genuinely am starting to believe that they are talking on the level of their listeners.  Their listeners are just lacking in intelligence.  "Squirrel!"  And I hate to say that, but its becoming increasingly obvious.  

In discussions with apparent learned individuals, I come across basic facts, that they can't argue, they just were completely unaware of.  And when confronted with these facts, they acknowledge them, and then move on in their same direction.  If it doesn't back up their opinion, it must be irrelevant.  

Are you aware that there is a whole world out there?  People that do things differently, and they work!  

So it seems in order to combat the blatant, raging ignorance that is so popular now, we must lower our projected intelligence, use smaller words, louder voices, and flashier lights.  "Squirrel!"

"If you amplify everything, you hear nothing" -- John Stewart

How true.  How true.  

But what do we do?  How do we get our point across to people who make decisions with their bodily humors? 

Idiocracy is truly coming about.  I am sad.

The BBC seems to be age-matching now.  Listening to a report on housing problems for the elderly in China.  They dub over the Chinese ranters with sex matched pensioners.  I shouldn't laugh, but it's like some sort of awful theatrical production.

Working on rally pictures.

And watched about 6 movies last week.

Soon to be updates.
