Random bread thoughts?

 

Whole wheat bread (or whatever you got) toasted with sliced banana, cinnamon and sugar. Beat that.

I just find a bunch of your explanations - particularly in relation to advertising content - to be nonsensical. Regarding the anime thread and subdivision I don't necessarily have a problem with it (although it does seem that Brad's conversation arose organically), it just seems that the elephant in the room about all of these skirting conversations is that clickbait is a major factor.

There have been discussions about things I and many have found completely boring and pointless, like  car talk or music I don´t particularly care for and I haven´t seen those moved to its own thread or cut off completely. This was a harmless anime chat that wasn´t gonna extend itself more than any other derail this thread has seen.

That would make sense, except for the fact that we started the forum with no idea that it could be a business, at a time when there were essentially no templates for our business. When we figured out how the forum would operate, including our policies on splitting off topic discussions to new threads or even new forums, there was essentially no CPM based ad industry.

Japan has a thing for white bread with margarine (no butter over here lately because the government is stupid) and sugar and calls it "English toast," when it is neither of those things

To go on a fashion-related tangent, I went to some great stores this week while in SF. I stopped in at the Archive a couple of times, which has a great selection, and is notable in that all of your goth and artisanal fantasies are probably much more attainable than you think. What I mean is that a lot of the stuff - the good stuff - lends it self to a @nicelynice - ish mode of dress. Sure, you can't style MA+ like an asshole and expect it to work, but just for an example, I tried on a BBS leather (I don't usually like BBS) and would have happily walked out the door in it had I also been carrying 5 grand in cash. Same with a pair of low-cut MA+ back-zip boots. My point is maybe that you shouldn't be afraid to go out on a limb and try something awesome just because you like it.

 

I have to say that my favorite spot was M.A.C., which somewhat amusingly stands for "Modern Appealing Clothing." They have a super cool buy, and also a super cool staff. Junya, Dries, CDGH+, EG, all this stuff that wears really well together. And the store space is really cool. A good mix of what was being discussed earlier - curated but with enough whimsy to make the experience entertaining; more so than at the Archive. Sadly, they did not have the Dries biker pants I wanted in my size.

 

Both are, obviously, way cooler than Barneys etc, which manage to be boring and (imo) unfriendly, by virtue both of staff and layout. I never really know what to do with myself in stores, though.

 

And of course, both pale in comparison to the wonder that is the downtown Angelic Pretty boutique (0), which is what I wish the interior of my spaceship looked like.

Hence why we're seeing a lot more subdivision now than we were in the past. Right? I mean that was kinda my point.

The opposite, actually.  We've essentially made no new forums for several years now, and splitting things off into their own threads is way less than we used to do when we were on VBulletin, not least because it was a few clicks less work in VB.

 

It's a really bad assumption that people (myself included) are always acting out of rational self-interest.  While it is often true, there are many more explanations for behavior that are actually more more simple, and boil down to "he thought that it was a good idea at the time."

 

My entire thought process on the anime thing:

"Holy crap, that is a lot of anime posts."

"Hmmm, a lot of people seem to care, but just as many, myself included, don't"

"74 posts.  That would make a decent new thread.  I guess they can talk about anime there."

"Do I put it in SWD, or in the proper subforum?"

"Fuck it, people need to get out of thinking everything is in SWD.  Entertainment and Culture it is."

It's sorta English.  Bread and marg is a very English thing.  If you read George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London, bread with marg is used as a physical manifestations of wretchedness.

1. Alden thread. Uncles and Nephews frolic and bathe in each other's shell cordovan induced foot sweat. But only in the greatest of health.

2. Yohji thread. Homeless 20-somethings experiment with gigantic clothing meant to be seen and observed as a mirror reflecting the beauty and space of self. Only wear the clothes for photos.

3. Mod to Suedehead thread. US men pretending to be British and British men pretending to be brutish.

4. Epaulet thread. Wispy homosexuals purchase clothing that appears to be from J Crew.

5. TOJ thread. Masochists paint walls and plant grass, only to watch is dry and grow, respectively, hundreds of times over before their order is finally shipped.

6. Stephan Schneider thread. College bros compare notes on how a sweater should fit over their pear shaped bodies.


Too much real life
