Kinda interesting, though it paints with pretty broad strokes
Quote:
Baby Boomers: Boomers find tremendous value in being able to engage with brands that most consumers cannot afford. They use luxury to illustrate their achievement. In short, they think of luxury brand exclusivity as the ability to say “I can and you can’t.”
Millennials: When it comes to luxury brands, Millennials have a pack mentality. For them, it’s less about “I can and you can’t,” and more about “I can and you should come along.” They see luxury value as a derivative of how many people want something, whether they can afford it or not.

This is stupid, the basic sociological component of fashion is about both distinction and belonging and this is not influenced by the super shaky concept of generations.

Most agencies are selling nonsense knowingly so he probably is aware of that. The worst is having to explain to TV people why their program sucks and what they should change, the bullshit you have to come up with is mind boggling and everyone who works in tv thinks like a hairdresser from the boondocks or, in one case I know of actually was one.

sounds about right, though i will say the people I know in tv are all well-educated city dwellers who spend their days trying to figure out what hairdressers from the boondocks would watch

I work in TV with some people who seem pretty smart, though I am fortunate to have good creative-driven content development/market research people in my company.

Been thinking about aesthetics and stuff like that and realized that all I really want is to look like a Pokemon Elite Four who's entire team consists of level 100 Caterpies.

Mr and Mrs Moo were behaving very rudely, like animals, very loud...for some reason, they were on the stage, shouting at the poor guys who were trying to fix the big red stage curtain...I was in a gallery, and I took a bet from another member who was with me to "shoe bomb" Mr Moo with one of my Alden Cordovan shoes....I took the bet...but I accidentally bulls-eyed Mrs Moo, who collapsed...Oh God,  I was taught it's a sin to hit a woman....There was a big mob of people on the stage who gathered around her and were gasping in shock.....I thought I'd killed her, I made a run for it out of the building, knocking over the SF member (I don't remember his name, he lives in Korea and is a long-time member) who was coming in with about 10 Korean girls on his arms...they all shrieked as Asian girls do as I stampeded out of the building and rushed into a cab outside and said "Go! go!"....I looked back as the cab sped away I saw Ivwri enter the building, with his bouncy walk using more tip-toe than heel (I don't know how I got to imagine this)...he was supremely confidently, carrying some giant stick or staff, and dressed as a witchdoctor...

thought it was gonna end in "yo homes to bel air"
