[[SPOILER]]  27. It's Complicated Dana Boyd is a researcher who has spent seven or eight years researching how teens use social media. This non-fiction book presents his findings and his opinions, as well as many perspectives on teens, their use of social media, and parental and social reactions to those things. Boyd paints a broad picture about teens being basically fine, and in many cases the parents and society around them assuming more than is fair. Boyd provides...
Honestly, I find Gaiman a bit formulaic, so if you've read a lot of his books yeah it's nice, but nothing new.   If you've only read one or two it should be pretty fun.   IIRC, you've only read 3-4?   My Mum has this belief that I'm a huge Gaiman fan and buys me everything to do with Gaiman, but really I don't have the heart to tell her I only half like him.
 Well I guess it's not just that distressed look - I don't know anything that looks like Guidi - except maybe MA +.
 Maybe I'm not the best person to address this - I tend to find a lot of the designer philosophies and perspectives a little superfluous and ridiculous. However, there's a quote from another forum that's loved which is: "The main principle in design should be to make shit look sick as fuck". I think this is basically what drives a lot of purchases, choices and excuses. Guidis look really, really good worn, a lot of the time. The people that design and make them know what...
 I'm sure some of the knee-high, etc boots are really expensive, but then they do use significantly more leather and weigh more. I think you're maybe conflating 'design' with 'quality' - Guidis (along with many artisinal boots/shoes) are meant to look slightly deformed, ugly and misshapen. However, while the looks are not for everyone they do hold up incredibly well. One member - nicelynice - has a pair he's done literally everything in - salt laden slush in the snow,...
 Visvim is a joke - the pricing continually goes up even though the quality is the same. JM: Guidis aren't $1500 or more, even the most expensive leather models are $1200/$1300 AUD. They are incredibly well made though. If you want insane pricing look at Paul Harnden - just beyond ridiculous - $800 for a cotton shirt, $2500 for a jacket, etc. Buttons don't even stay on.
[[SPOILER]]  26. Trigger Warning Neil Gaiman's short story collection. Loved a few, most were OK, a few bored me to tears. The introduction (as always with his work) was really interesting. Especially loved him riffing on Holmes and Dr. Who (neither of which have ever done much more me, though I always thought they were good at what they were). I'd kind of like to read a collection of stories by authors doing a version of someone else's work they loved. Eerie, creepy,...
TBH, I'd follow an instagram that was just g-trans jokes and recipes.
 Well, maybe it's unfair, but it's just such a terrible look. It's like someone wearing a suit and just throwing on derbies because they're 'dress shoes' - it ruins the whole thing. It's one of those cases where $30 dunlops look 1000% better. Jeans are casual - maybe the most casual pant - trying to dress them up never looks good, especially if they are indigo (black jeans are often easier because the texture isn't as obvious, and also there's fewer connotations compared...
Creep - that fit is 10/10.
