Dear karl_ shoulders

So in an attempt to build massive shoulders i decided to go swimming. I think shoudlers are critical in making clothes hang well. you can have a big tummy but if you have big shoulders you still have a nice authoritative profile. An Imposing siloughete. imposing yay. I guess imgeeting drawn to that buisnes masculine power jerk look. goodbye androgyn and skinny arms.

Anyways....i started swimming and im at the library studying and i actually like feel super happy. zen like.

am i happy?

Dear KArl- I had a romantic moment and now im staying up

So i had one of those moments, like in the movies, where it was actually kind of so cliche it was good. And then you feel kind of like a dufus bc after being all angsty on love and romance and then it suddenly presents itself to you, and you cant help but smile. And then you feel like even more of a dufus bc you cant stop smiling.

Im in a place right now where I kind of dont want to know. But I really do. Ya know where your trying to figure out your footing wit that vile person that has now kind of sonsumeed you for the time being. Maybe not knowing is good. Maybe pacing is good. Sometimes games are good. especiallyt when your young. And im young right?

Anyways even if it all goes to shit Im going to remember that time where we stood on opposite side of these five pillars. And we had that moment. And how i felt like a dufus bc you made me smile like a dork.

Universe make it happen. I'll even sacrfice a lamb like they do in the oldschool days.

Dear Karl-

I think the idea of progress is ultimatly what people are ingrained to go after. The poor want to have more money. The rich want more money. Average ppl want to maye with those that are beautiful. Beautiful ppl want to mate with more beautfiful ppl. People are constantly in a state of progression. As time passes they are expected to do moren to get more, to be more. When ppl feel stuck they often feel lost. Without progress they feel their doing nothing. They get angsty. Angry. Maybe progress isn't for everyone. Their are finite resources. Maybe we should just contend with being never more then who we are.I sound obnoxious

dear karl: stories

I try to put my life into a narrative sometimes. Like the kind of stories you see in tv or movies. A story that has structure. But life isn't always like a narrative. I think maybe a lot of ppl struggle and get saf when they can't seem to make sense of their life and put it into like a story for someone to just follow and enjoy. Life for pessimists is often the case of being born living then dying. I guess we all know the begining and end but its the livong part that doesn't always follow that story. Maybe its just random and sporatic. Maybe we suiffer trying to make sense of it?

I don't think my life is some story I can just chronicle and tell ppl. Bc if I truy to do that it isn't really life its just a structure that I formulated so u can follow along.

Dear Karl - M/V - Fire Crotch


Its not easy listening.

MIA is kind of going for that revolutionary dystopia vibe aka CHAOS CHAOS CHAOS. She's making political commentary. She's gotten her video banned from youtube. But lets keep in mind that this video still cost liek 100000000 dollars to make. Yay to making statement but still spend loads of cash! ARt?

This video relates prob to MIA trying to bring to attention the genocide that is happening in SRi lanka. She's saying kind of that systematic genocide is till happening in the world. And also insulting America. go MIA.

SAy HI to MIA. Hi.

WHat does the song feel like?

It's like when you take caffeine to be more productive, and you realize that you took TOO much and then your heart beats really fast and you cant do your work because your heart and blood is pumping so fast......... Then you get stressed. YOur not getting anything done and then that makes your heart beat faster......

Video of RED HEAD Slaughter!

GInger genocide. wow as distrubinga s that was i think its relvent. Obv Red head in teh video are symbolic of victmizing those that are different. PLace the blame on others. Anti semitis blah blah

BUT i dont think its just symbolic

Red heads get ALOT of hate. Maybe not in like canada( as much) but I remember in the UK they get so much shit. People look and talk about them as if they have leprosy.

Are gingers really that ugly?

UMMM obv not.

Could I imagine the American Gov't sending them to field to begin bombing them? Maybe not. But i guess thsi is "art"or political commentary right.

But ppl do shit liek this...which is like messed up.

This video is kind of really disturbing.

Would it be your worse nightmare if your kid had red hair?

I dated a ginger and I was embaressed (sometimes).

dear karl: l dont know if this is good or bad

Something changed yesterday. I felt a part of me harden. I'm not affected anymore.I stand alone and I don't resist. I'm not affected by this elitism. I'm just doing me and letting go of anxiety. Maybe its that I justy donyt care anymore.

Live the way u want to.

I will create what I want to while I'm here.

Say goodbye to pretending and trying.

Dear Karl- Pretzels

“My colleague this morning ate little crunchy pretzels covered with blueberry and cherry yogurt,” Ms. Bickel said wonderingly. “That would never make sense to a German person.”

Dear Karl- Listen to this

Honestly minimal makes me feel so loosey goosy. It takes the edge off and i really like the field bc its not so down and dreary. I wouldnt say it's happy music- but it kind of lets you recentre. The field are from thsi label called Kompakt from berlin germany. The label is known to be in with the "too cool for school" german folk but i dig them. I got into them after reading Daul's blog.

You just made my desktop....

Dear Karl- I miss my friend

Stumbled on this image and brought me back to a Different time. Miss u Henks. Haha i feel like i should be singing the wind beneath my wings.

Dear Karl: Micky mouse ears

This whole mickey mouse ear thing is my new little want item. I think slutty hipster chicks should wear these for halloween, it will be like their version of the bunny ear costume ala Play boy.

Dear karl: I want to be a korean shopper

Koreans are frickin obsessed wit adidas. I dont know where i can get my hands on amrket data but im sure that korean make up like at least 25 % of the sales. And its just dawned on me that Jeremy scott is like ingranied in the world of overstylized kpop groups.

Here's Beast wearing his design for the adidas SS collection. I actually like it

Dear Karl- This man is my hero

As i was fretting about a few spots that emerged on my face recently, i suddenly came across this video. After seeing this clip i actually got a little emotional This man has my respect. His attitude is what makes me hopeful and a little teary eyed. As someone who's suffered from severe acne i can attest to the fact that it drains you. It can get to the point that you avoid your reflection because you cant stand the sight of yourself. I remember times where it got so bad i would have to steal my mothers foundation just to stand the sight of what stood back at me. Watching him i really feel for him. Especially because accutane did help me .
Kudos man. Looks are only skin deep.

Dear Karl- It's Been a Year......

.....and with a new year comes the prospect of new changes. Many people seem to create a framework for how they want the new year to shape out. And like the masses, I too have created myself a little framework.

The changes that I wantt to make in this new millenium are sometimes intangible in their immediate scope. So in reply to this, It's cathartic to take part in something that has more immediecy like changing the way one dresses in order to reflect ones aspirations. So im dabbling into a sort of reinvention of sorts.

For S/S 10 I really am inspired by 70's asian images along with pastel korea.

I feel myself being less drawn to the androgyness, black, android look that i've been so

i felt a need tos ort of reinvent myself to reflect the changes that have happened and goals i wish to achieve. For me clothes is expression, it's my way of creating dicourse with all those around me, without evre saying a word.
