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

How to meet people

Wear something weird (you don’t actually have to, but it will help if you’re not good at conversations, or starting them). Go to a bar. Pick one that isn’t like a pick up bar, but just a place that has seats at the bar and serves drinks. Go there (presumably on your own). Drink. Stay ’til close. At some point during the night, people will talk to you. Go from there. It’s not really that hard if you’re that desperate. Which I’m sure not hahahahhaahhahahahaha.

We are the observers

I’ve had the realisation that really, the only purpose we serve on this planet is to observe. Yes, we reproduce but ultimately only to continue to be able to observe. They say that by observing a situation you change it. What if really we existed because it was only by observing that our nature of reality continued to exist. In other words it’s only because we’re here on earth that it exists.

Thought experiment: imagine a place you’ve never been before, never heard of before, never thought about before. Take the edge of your know universe, and move a bit to the left. Ok, that place your now thinking of, for all you know, it doesn’t exist, you have no way of being there to observe it, or proving that by thinking of the edge of the universe it’s actually real. There’s that old saying “if a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one to hear it, does it make a sound?”, well I ask you, if you have no conception of a place that may or may not exist, there are no ways to show it does indeed exist (written accounts, video footage etc.) then really, does it actually exist?

What if everything we knew simply came into being as we observed it? Similar idea to quantum theory really, that nothing is set until you measure or observe it. Following this scientific thought, that means if no one was here to measure or observe our universe, it had no sentient life forms, it would exist only as potential and not as reality.

 

PS pro-mindfuck: what if only robots existed, ones that were not what we would consider intelligent, with the intelligence of pocket calculators, but they were set to measure things, would our universe still exist?

 

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.

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 😀
