A PSA: Music Does NOT Sound Better on Vinyl

Dear hipsters:

Ok, I get that gender and general hygiene have taken a backseat to individual expression and raw humanity.  But do you have to be so weird about it?

Sweet gloves, bro.

Seriously, if you're trying to make a statement, please read Aristotle's Rhetoric.  Especially the part where you're not supposed to disgust the people you're trying to make that statement to. Chapter 2, I think.
I'm sorry that you had to see this picture.
I think the world would take these people more seriously if they didn't wear every item of clothing they owned (or no clothes at all), actively try to look like serial rapists, or judge all people who weren't being as weird as they are.

That is all.  (Source for both photos, and quite possibly my new favorite website)


  1. Where DID you find that picture of my first boyfriend? ;) Just kidding!!

    Anyway, I can't really say much. I was into grunge. Ahhh, the joys of growing up!

    I will send you the bill for the therapy I now need for seeing the second photo.

  2. In Japan, people who dress like this, are normal. I know, right??

  3. Shaking my head . . . shaking my head.

    I think that guy in the second pic has bigger boobs than my first girlfriend.

  4. I am pretty sure it's the trying to look like they're not trying while clearly trying SO HARD TO BE DIFFERENT that gets me the most.

  5. It's like the other day on TV, there was this dude and he had pink hair. And I said to my husband, "did he dye his hair pink because he liked the idea of it begin pink, or did he do it because he was all, 'people will see that I have pink hair and think I'm cool and different and edgy'" Cause those are different thoughts, ya know?
