"The other big issue I’ve been noticing is that there is so little middle ground, the avant garde have gone way out there and the heritage aesthetics has gotten to be a caricatures of themselves. In the early 2000s you saw Helmut, Heidi, and Raf really intertwine the avante garde design with classic beautiful menswear. For example when Helmut made a perfectly tailored black blazer with elastic bondage straps. That subtlety is gone and I miss it. The mystery and subversion is isn’t there any more, both camps are just trying to hit you over the head with their extremes."

Dead on.

I don't think his list of three brands was meant to be all-inclusive.

thats about the length of my hair if i were to straighten it.

does antonioli send a confirmation email when purchasing?
i purchased a blazer via bank transfer a few weeks ago and now they claim they never received the money and cancelled my order. (amount had been deducted from my bank account from the first day!)
put another oder thru with a cc and the item is still listed and they havent sent me a confirmation?!

Definitely worth reading. My favorite book in a minute (not that I do a ton of reading).

Phillip K. Dick has a ton of great ideas but not so many great books. I'm kind of shocked that they haven't turned The Man in the High Castle into a movie yet, though.

I actually really liked that part. A bunch of people in my book club couldn't get past it, though.

I thought it was kinda like have a foreign-born TA in college; it take a class or two to understand what the hell they're saying, but at a certain point it clicks an it stops sounding like they even have an accent.

i picked up count zero by william gibson and i find it to be exactly the same as neuromancer laugh.gif
storyline is tweaked, i like that it involves corruption in the art world (so far..)

I fail to see the problem with this.

Currently reading stranger in a strange land. It's super sexist and kind of boring. Gonna tough it out because it's a quote-unquote classic.

Has anyone read Perdido street station?
post #61528 of 109053
not really a problem since i really enjoyed neuromancer. i just found it weird that the author would rehash the story line. i dont know if its common or not?
post #61529 of 109053
It starts pretty much the same but it goes in a fairly different direction. (though yeah, it's still pretty similar).

Mona lisa overdrive is a lot different than the other two though.

When fiction calls my name, I typically go for the crazy (post)modernist stuff too. But after reading some Wallace Stevens last night, I picked up the Norton Anthology that I had to buy sophomore year and read a bunch of Andrew Marvell, John Milton, Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder, and Philip Sidney. It's kind of nice to return to the older things every now and then. Especially poetry. satisfied.gif
