BEST PICS ON THE NET

Fuck pictures of Kardashian and Lohan and those other skanks. people miss the best stuff on the internet because they don’t know where to look.

 

ENJOY YOUR LIVES. THEY’RE THE ONLYONE’S YOU”VE GOT

Kanye West – Runaway video

I caught this on Rage a few weeks back. I hate Kanye (the man and his ego) along with the best of them, but his music and vision is just so fresh and interesting, and frankly it’s beautiful. Even the subject of the song is completely different to 100% of the other rappers out there. There’s a lot of feeling on this song, and on all the other songs on this album. Better than 808 and heartbreak, really some of the best mainstream music out there.

Doc Martens – Pierre white boots

I bought these, the coolest Doc Martens made since the original black 10 holes I started out with (and am wearing right now actually). They remind me of Tron, french design (I assume the “Pierre” in the name helps with this), a Clockwork Orange, and a host of other cool things. A work of art.

Lady Gaga Polaroid video glasses

I highly doubt any of you are coming to this blog for the latest news, so consequently I doubt this will be that new to anyone, but sometimes you come across stuff you just have to talk about, even if theres nothing new to say about it.

And behold, I give you the GL20’s, Lady Gaga’s creation from a collaboration with Polaroid of all people. Honestly I was surprised to hear about them, because really, they haven’t been relevant for about 10 years when we started getting digital cameras. The last time I remember seeing one used was in the UK office, which is now about 10 years old. And Outkast had that song that went “shake it like a polaroid peeeekcha!” from about the same time. So yeah. Who’s taking polaroids these days? Guess this is their way of rebooting themselves (I hate myself that I just used that term).

Anyway, these things looking MINDBLOWINGLY sweet. Unless they are over about $500.00 I’m getting a pair because even if I never wear them, who the hell cares? It’s a functioning piece of art if you ask me. Some people pay thousands, hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars for a painting, to me this is the same sort of thing, except it does something. And look, I don’t have high hopes for being the next Bowie, but if I ever do this is the shit I would wear while performing.

Faux fur vest

Here’s a style I’ve discovered that’s really cool, very rock and roll (which is what I’m all about) and gives you a very unique look, especially if you’re a guy because apart from me I havn’t seen really anyone going for this look on the street. There are a few celebrities I found pictures of giving it a go (the *ugh* Olsen Twins) but at the moment this is a trend that hasn’t taken off meaning you can be ahead of everyone else! 🙂 That’s what I’m all about, because I hate it when people think I’m wearing something just because it’s trendy. I havn’t done that for yeeeaaaarrrss.

The fur vest look is very 80s hair metal looking, and I got mine off eBay, it cost me $15.00. Tooooooo easy! And I’ve already got heaps of compliments for it and rightly so because it’s a badass look. If you get one because of this post email me a picture of you wearing it how you’d wear it and I’ll feature it on this blog. Do it!

 

 

 

Comeback

*Insert a drumroll here* I’mmmmmmmm back!! To all of you 5 people who do keep an eye on this blog (or wander here from some dark part of the internet) I am back. A lot has happened, suffice it to say I’ve been away. This is of course the second comeback from a hiatus but this time it is for keeps! No need for third time lucky 🙂

I’ve also had a new focus and a new resolution which I think will be good for this blog. The resolution is that I do at least one post a day, more if I can but minimum one post a day so there’s something new here for you guys when you check your bookmarks each day. And the focus is just a bit more broad. I’ve started learning guitar, so there will definitely be more of a music focus on here. But don’t worry, my aim for this blog is it’s for all and sundry, so it won’t be boring shit about scales and music theory but rather in the same way I feature stuff about fashion I think everyone can appreciate or find interesting the same will apply to music. And I might even demo some stuff to see what people think. But only good shit!! I already have a few posts planned that should be really good, I really want this blog to be read to genuinely influence people, not in a forceful way but just to make people think about stuff perhaps a little differently than they have. To me theres nothing better than learning or discovering something completely new and exciting that makes you think about things or see things in a whole new way. That’s what I want for subReality.

 

Adios, look for a new post in a few hours 😀

 

Redheads – A roundup

I’m not even sure why I’m doing this, but at the suggestion of a (ginger) friend, I’m doing a post about gingers (rangas, redheads, coppers, whatever derogatory term you can think of) and all their cultural significance (probably not much).

why do I even bother?

In case the chap in the image above isn’t familiar to you by the way, he’s an internet phenomenon (for all the wrong reasons of course) and anyone who’s sad enough to spend large amounts of time on the internet (myself) would know who he is. It’s a really good test actually, to tell how geeky you are, just peruse a bunch of memes and see how many you know. The less you know, of course, the more fulfilling your life.  Anyway, the story with the ginger kid above is that South Park did an episode that said that ginger people have no souls. I didn’t think anyone took that show seriously but apparently this kid did. Idiot. He made a video rebutting South Park’s “claims” insisting famously that “Gingers do have souls” and that is now how he is known on the internet. Seriously, google it.

South Park then went and mocked that, leading to more videos from the copper crusader. So thats one strike against gingers I think, he’s really not doing much for their credibility as a group. Or for Christians either for that matter. Fail.

A ginger that everyone knows and likes (or at least doesn’t hate) is Ronald Weasley from the Harry Potter francise. Although if you needed that little jog of the memory what rock have you been hiding under? Everyone knows the dude.

a face even a mother couldn't love

smarmy git

Theres not much else to say about him, except that Ron continues the stereotype of gingers being stupid sidekicks, thickheaded numbskulls who go around doing nothing more than making us laugh at their expense. No wonder they get a bad rap with this sort of mainstream exposure.

So this guy isn’t a ginger, obviously. But Jonah (as played by comedian Chris Lilley on Summer Heights High) was one of the first people I saw using the word “ranga” to describe a ginger person. I actually found the whole thing quite amusing because at that point in my life I wasn’t even aware that people with red hair were picked on or victimized (apart from the obligatory “does the carpet match the drapes?” comment on first meeting which isn’t really a big deal). So to see him have a go a small kid with red hair I found rather satirical of the way bullies of any sort operate; namely to insult someone in a way that was illogical, and therefore difficult to respond to (tried arguing with a crazy person before?).

But to me this sums up the whole situation with having a go at ginger people, someone has a dig, the red head thinks it’s unfair and takes offense, and because they’re getting a rise out of the victim, the bully will continue to harass. Remember when your mum told you to ignore what the bullies said and they’d go away? Yeah, she was right all along.

she is right, and you are wrong

Anyway to balance all of this ginger hate out, there are red headed people out there who are liked and even respected. I’ve already mention Ron from Harry Potter, who no doubt is loved by geeks and kids all over the world (even if we still laugh at him for being a dumbass), but there are others as well. Let me point you in the direction of Christina Hendricks.

making up for every other ginger all by herself

you get the idea I'm sure...

So I mean obviously she’s hot and attractive and also a red head. But even though I could stop here and redheads would still be winning, I think it’d be fair to mention a few others (even if they aren’t as good as Miss Hendricks).

less hot but more respect, like commanding one of the great empires of the world respect

another red headed royal. life can't be too bad for this guy

Nobody hated her (except for the supernatural) but then again, never got anywhere apart from the x-files, so I think she broke even really.

why do all the redhead guys look like douche bags?

and all the female red heads are pretty hot

And there are others like Napoleon (yes, that Napoleon), Geri Halliwell, Carrot top (although it’s easy to argue that he and all references to him should be suppressed), Debra Messing, and the list just goes on and on.

So to sum up: people give gingers shit, gingers are pussies and take offense to this, people keep doing it because it’s funny. But at the end of the day gingers are just people with red hair (and freckles) who burn easily. I’m pretty damn sure that’s all there is to say about the subject. Although I can’t expect it, I hope never to have to talk about the gingerliness of anyone ever again.
