    It's basically a generic sweatshirt that's been dip dyed. It's very comfy and not too warm.

    Yup, I have one and agree.

    I also agree that it does actually work better worn as a sweater/knit rather than in a sweatshirt context.

    Tried on BoO for the first time today. Didn't go so well. Apparently Scott Sternberg likes designs for short people.

    The story of modernism started with enlightenment thought, where rationalism could make the world better.
    Romanticism responded to ratioinalism saying that reason and order wasn't going to get us anywhere and we should look to nature and emotions.
    And then modernism says no reason can make stuff better but we have to break with the past because it was holding us back.
    Postmodernism states that the "improvement" that modernism likes is a lie and al ot of our assumptions are fundamentally flawed.

    I think most people would agree on that take. Modernism is a bit murky though. In literature particularly Modernism didn't mean breaking from the past. Think of T.S. Eliot's "Tradition and the Individual Talent." Or think of "Ulysses." Or basically everything Ezra Pound ever did (he said "make it new," but he was basically reinventing what had come before). In painting, Picasso used the same ideas regarding perspective that you see in the prehistoric paintings on cave walls in Lascaux. Kinda sounds like Neoclassicism, which came well before Modernism. So what exactly is Modernism?

    Make a new thread... it's great that you're talking about this but honestly I'd just as soon skip the walls of text entirely
