I thought that Rise of the Guardians was way better than Frozen.
Flashbacks is a buy sell trade store. They specialize in retro clothing ranging from 70s to 80s but usually I can sneak some contemporary pieces in there. I went to go sell some things since I’ve been slowly cleaning out my room. That and I just bought a pretty pricey shirt.
The store was fairly empty with only one person ahead of me with bags of things to sell. Fortunately I came before the next guy who had boxes upon boxes of women’s clothes, shoes, and other accessories. Apparently they all belonged to his mother who had recently passed away and he wanted to get rid of it all. “Gotta move on,” he said.
When the guy finished picking out the things that he wanted, he called me over. He had skin slightly darker than my own, a baseball cap, jeans and a t-shirt. it’s 88 degrees outside, something that I only seem to experience when I call out of work like I did today. He asked if I worked in retail which I said I didn’t. “You have very good taste in clothes. We should get married so we could share these.” He said it with a laugh in his voice, his eyes still looking at the clothes. I didn’t have anything witty to say so I just smiled back.
"What do you do for a living?"
"I’m a stereo compositor for 3D movies."
He seemed impressed which people usually are when they hear that. I guess cause it’s so out of the ordinary. It’s one of the perks of having that title cause if they knew how unimpressive the job looked day to day I’m sure no one would pay me any mind. Best to keep everyone ignorant about how that stuff actually works. He commented on my driver’s license when he asked to see it. “Wow, you’ve certainly changed since this.”
"Yeah… I was 16 in that picture."
He handed me my check and told me to come back soon. “We really need a lot of guy clothes and your style is just perfect.” I smiled, said I’d be back soon and left.
I sold a pair of platform Jeffery Campbell shoes that were way too big, these Ralph Lauren sandals that I’ve only worn once, a suit from Frank and Oak that was a collab with Dave 1 from Chromeo, Vivienne Westwood Jeans, a River Island floral shirt, a Burberry shirt. I’m sure I could have made more had I sold them individually on ebay or something, but I just really wanted them out of my room.
I like the smell of photo chemicals on my hands. It smells like progress.
I can’t seem to draw anything
One of the best opening scenes from Andrew CK. Stay educated.
*Louis CK, and the show itself is just called Louie (not trying to be a dick correcting, but this show is worth watching)
I think knowing the origins of the word makes its use as an insult less insulting. Someone calling me a faggot doesn’t offend me cause it literally means a bundle of sticks.
That and I like wood.
