There's only a few bars in this song that actually reference the problems that money create, I think only Biggie raps about how the feds are investigating him. Mase and Puff Daddy just talk about more money

its slow but it does a lot of character development and focuses on a lot of things other than the crime

This is an old-fashioned way of thinking about things, IMO. Work smarter, not harder. 

 

Using myself as an example, I worked with my back FOR someone - $x/hr. I decided I wanted to work a little bit more with my brain and for myself and followed a "passion" - suddenly $5x/hr with less than half the hours, with almost no overhead aside from fun toys I would buy otherwise. During this self-employment, I've found another niche in the same field and am in the process of hiring an employee or two to do the grunt-work instead of me - if all works out - $20x+/hr. (all just rough ballpark numbers)

 

I'll be spending a year abroad in a few months here, and I should be making similar money to what I am now while working an hour or so per day on a different continent. Say I eventually franchise out, which is eventual goal, my $/hr will really be infinite since I will be making money without working.

 

Every step, I have worked less hard and made more. More money = more servitude is myopic and depressing. It used to be that way maybe, but not anymore. True for layers, doctors, engineers, etc perhaps, I wouldn't know. 

 

I don't make much money compared to many posters here or compared to many of my friends in engineering, oil/gas, banking, etc. Probably less yearly than most university grads my age. But I make as much $/hr while working way fewer hours, which allows me time to work on art maybe, or waste it on online message boards maybe :). During the summer, I can work for 10-12 and spend 12-3 at the beach reading and swimming, which I often do. $/hr buys freedom, not $/year. Work smarter, not harder. Not advice to you or anyone, just something I believe.

Kind of surprised there's not a dedicated Margiela thread.

On a somewhat unrelated note- good news: got a gig in Tokyo and will be cosplaying a salaryman for the summer, whoo! Bad news: probably not getting paid enough to both eat and buy clothes... :o

It would probably just be me and you Chet haha. When I first came here in 2010 Margiela was wither "boring" or "fake", "not Margiela", "design team sucks" etc

Can't compete with this anyways : http://maisonmartinmargiela.tumblr.com

On the topic

Maison Martin Margiela X Mykita

Definitely. I came from Wings + Horns, Momotaro, and Nom de Guerre. The most "baller" pair of shoes I had were Android Homme. I liked Margiela enough to start buying their more conservative pieces that looked like the latter labels until it just clicked and I experimented with their other more out there stuff. My only regret is not being able to get to some brick and mortar stores since they have awesome stuff that never makes it to online stores
