I can't wear GATs to hike in, I don't have a dog that can take adequate photographs
The only canine I have access to is a talking dog. I am trying to get rid of him though. Why ? Well that's because he keeps going on about how he speaks 4 languages and how he's an adventurous spirit with a pack of huskies conquered the antarctic, the first dog ever to do so. SO you may ask, sell a talking dog ? Yes, I can't take the damned lies anymore
Should I superglue the seams back to the body ???Quote:

I've been thinking about this. I really like my White Mountaineering boots. I got them partly because they were like a caricature of the Vibram Christy-soled, moc-toe workboot that you see absolutely everywhere here. And they're like.. so ugly that they somehow look good (debatable I guess).
Like at a quick glance, you know there is something weird going on. They're almost unsettling in a way.
Maybe the most polarizing item of clothing I own, and honestly the only one that ever gets second glances from strangers, if only because people don't know what the fuck. oh wait and the fuzzy phillip lim pants, but whatever. I'm not interested in getting stares anyway so I think my style works out well.
Which exact boot is this? (Pics?)post #53599 of 1090532/20/12 at 12:58pmQuote:Constantius defines repetition by contrasting it with recollection. Recollection and repetition are mirror images of each other. “Repetition and recollection are the same movement, except in opposite directions, for what is recollected has been, is repeated backward, whereas genuine repetition is recollected forward” (R 131). Both recollection and repetition are attempts to take the present moment seriously, by forming some connection between present and past (recollection), or present and future (repetition). The “now” of the present is always a singular instant, a blink of the eye which immediately disappears and in itself has no preestablished or lasting meaning. Consequently, without either recollection or repetition to give meaning to the present moment, “all life dissolves into an empty, meaningless noise” (R 149).
Recollection was the preeminent category of Greek philosophy. For the Greeks recollection gave meaning to existence by connecting it with a past that is always already beyond one’s reach. In Greek thought there is nothing new under the sun; no genuine discoveries are possible. To know is not to create or uncover but to remember, and this memory provides an anchor of stability and significance to the fleeting moments of one’s experience. In this way recollection bestows meaning on the present, but because that meaning is rooted in a past that is always unrecoverable, it is tinged with sadness (R 132). Recollection makes security and sadness inseparable. “Recollection has the great advantage that it begins with the loss; the reason it is safe and secure is that it has nothing to lose” (R 136).
What recollection was to ancient philosophy, Constantius argues, repetition will be to modern philosophy, even though modern philosophy is not yet aware of this (R 131).The dialectic of repetition is easy, for that which is repeated has been—otherwise it could not be repeated—but the very fact that it has been makes the repetition into something new. When the Greeks said that all knowing is recollecting, they said that all existence, which is, has been. When one says that life is a repetition, one says: actuality, which has been, now comes into existence. (R 149)
The paradigm shift involved here is not complicated, but its consequences for philosophy are enormous. Shifting the source of meaning into the future creates a fundamentally new relationship to time, and a fundamentally new relationship to the idea of the new. Repetition is an attempt to bring together both new and old in a movement that—like existence—always faces the future.post #53600 of 1090532/20/12 at 1:20pmpost #53601 of 1090532/20/12 at 1:27pmpost #53602 of 1090532/20/12 at 1:45pmI'm tempted to get a pair of Adidas Country knowing full well that these things look like some goddamn leather potatoes with stripes basically.

Having others reassure that something is cool to you is the first step to uncool. Antiswagger. Confidence -5post #53604 of 1090532/20/12 at 2:09pmpost #53605 of 1090532/20/12 at 3:27pmSo you know the "Ultimate Noob Thread (recommend me X in my wardrobe)?" Well, I kind of want to pose a "recommend me X in my wardrobe-" type question, but I don't want to deal with the slowness of that thread, not to mention that thread's lack of certain voices from whom I would like to hear responses to this question that I have. Basically, I have a question that amounts to "I have X amount of money to spend; please recommend me multiple Xs in my wardrobe, given that I already have items a, b, c, etc."
Is anyone down for entertaining this notion? or is this too much self-indulgence on my part? Apologies if it truly is the latter.post #53606 of 1090532/20/12 at 3:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by thewho13

So what you're saying is you literally want to be dressed by the internet?post #53607 of 1090532/20/12 at 3:35pmQuote:
Do you honestly think that people here don't do that already? Whether or not it involves purchasing a few items, or purchasing an entire outfit, you can't separate the influence of this forum from how people actually go about dressing themselves.
EDIT: I'm curious though: what tangible difference exists between "being dressed by the internet" and, well, "not" being dressed by the internet. I think the "X constructed by the internet" idea takes away from what the internet, as a social medium, has to offer, while simultaneously demonstrating an arbitrary privileging of the "other" influences in people's lives that shape their style.
EDITx2: Sorry if I sound obnoxiously defensive. I suppose I'm just looking for pointers like many other people, and this might be simply too selfish a request.post #53608 of 1090532/20/12 at 4:00pmpost #53609 of 1090532/20/12 at 4:00pm
I think this is overly simplistic - what he's asking (I think) is 'I have $X and these items, recommend something I hadn't considered before that would work with what I have.' Which I always thought was a cool idea, it's too bad that thread never took off.
That said, you'll be better off just lurking for awhile, buying some stuff, making a few mistakes and figuring it out on your own. I think people come here thinking this is a place to learn how to dress well, like a crash course in style, but you've got to do that on your own.post #53610 of 1090532/20/12 at 4:01pm
