What’s On My Mind (August 2020)

It always shocks me to watch people on the internet levy ad hominem character attacks toward people they barely know. Sure, lots have been said about how the anonymity of the platform and disposability of ideas on it are able to fan the flames of online hatred, but I still regularly get taken aback byContinue reading “What’s On My Mind (August 2020)”

Review: UNIQLO AIRism Mesh Boxer Briefs

People have a natural affinity for things that come in threes. Back when I used photography for, *clears throat*, self-expression, I used the Rule of Thirds grid propensely to properly proportion photos.

I initially wanted to write a straightforward, informative intro to this article, much like I would before I tried to be all cool and post-modern. However, it just felt wrong to go back.

Collected Content #9

I apologize for going MIA. As with anyone living in these United States, I’ve spent the last few weeks reflecting on such important things as police brutality, anarchy, racism, intersectionality, liberalism/free speech, and cancel culture. In between wrapping up my senior capstone project, taking my last undergraduate final exam, and figuring out what I’m goingContinue reading “Collected Content #9”

Review: Moonstar Alweather Sneaker

Virgil Abloh, multihyphenate creative and menswear designer of Louis Vuitton, once proclaimed that one need only change 3% of an original design to create something new. In applying this rule, he has created hit after hit, from the mega-popular streetwear label Off-White™ (never forget the TM!!!) to collaborations with legendary furniture maker IKEA Vitra. SayContinue reading “Review: Moonstar Alweather Sneaker”
