stephen (the) king
while we are still waiting for news about my future, be they positive or negative or absolutely anything as long as they can be interpreted as news, i humbly point you all to the direction of the most fascinating interwebbery conversation this industry of ours has seen in a long time. possibly ever.
the comment section of stephen west’s newest sweater pattern.
it’s an exhilarating, passive-aggressive tug-of-war between the clockworkers and daybreakers, who have finally snapped under their grave frustration from witnessing their once-idol slip further and further away from their safe, conventional and practical design preferences, and the art hipsters, who would not actually wear anything that’s not safe, conventional and practical but who in the name of civilization and open-minded liberalism appreciate the gesture anyway, or at least like to be associated with those who do – with, of course, the obligatory can’t-we-all-just-get-along people crouching apologetically in between. it’s the mother of all controversies, and everyone’s invited!
i’ve never felt more alive.
go on. i’ll be here eating my 10 dollar ice cream and enjoying the ride.
I am entertained. Thank you. Additionally, I find myself falling into the latter category of people – i DO appreciate the gesture. Very much.
O.M.G. Hilarious. <br /><br />And yet sad that so many people are willing to say such rude things online that they would probably never say if they were ever face to face with Mr. West.
