When everything you do, you label "#firstworldproblems" or #definitelynotstarbucks, and then post pictures of your daily routine as if they're interesting, I will not think of you as "down to earth," but dude is definitely living how he wants and is very self confident. In fact, too outwardly self-confident for others to enjoy watching. it gets obnoxious.
Dude is into biking and I do not doubt that. His "dedication" should be pretty understandable for other SFers--he loves the outfits, he loves the gear, the details, the excessive photography of the stuff he likes. It used to be clothes, now it's bikes. we don't care about bikes as much, so it's easy to go "wtf is this" just as people not into clothes will look at SF and go "wtf this is just clothes." maybe if you're a bike gear guy, that part of his blog is interesting to you.
yes, we have seen his calves. too, too many times. that's another piece of the problem here.
But on the other hand, after his backstory (the almost-died/should be dead thing) and how that has shaped him, we have to consider, guys, this dude is just happy to be doing his thing and he fucking revels in doing it. Who are we to hate on him doing it? It's obnoxious, so we can choose not to pay attention. I do feel like he could make an amazing blog, but it's not what he wants, and this dude does what he wants. His blog is for himself now.
I can't find it on his blog atm (i must not be searching right) but he had some sort of condition that the doctors said he would die from within a year at some point in his life, and he obviously did not do so, instead he made a miraculous recovery or something. He's mentioned it a few times and talked about how it reshaped his worldview.
Slow day on WAYWT... so... a short photo history of leather jackets and Mr. Moo, in chronological order. Some choices were certainly better than others, for various reasons. I only have 3 jackets left at this point.
