Sale > Food

My favorite 4-letter word in the English language next to "food" is "sale". And my favorite part of the year next to Christmas is the end of every season when American Rag Cie has their sale. Now, I love the inventory at American Rag, but I loathe the price point. C'mon, $255 for a Helmut Lang dress shirt? $185 for an Engineered Garments flannel? Disgusting! But that is the beauty of the end of season sale! Sure, it's slim pickings, but I usually get lucky because I have a large frame and the larger sizes are in stock; the majority of American Rag's shoppers subscribe to the Dior/Slimane stick-thin diet weigh around 60 lbs. The sale starts off with 30% off (meh) then it goes to 50% off (getting better), then finally 75% off (time to strike!) with random articles costing $5-$10! Booyahkasha!

The land of legend.

75% off...better than 50% off!

The cutting room floor.

Speaking of sale > food...back in '04 when I was at UCLA, the OG colorway of the Nike Air Max 95s were re-released. Being my favorite shoe of all time (at that time) compounded with me not making enough money at the campus coffee shop, I was compelled to spend the grocery money that my parents gave me to buy these magical shoes. Needless to say, I was extremely hungry for 2 weeks. Thank God for dorm buddies.

Hum dee dum dee dum...walking down the street...doo doo doo...ANOTHER SALE? Union LA is just as bad as American Rag (as far as the love:hate ratio goes) but their stock is entirely different...straight streetwear (I am beginning to hate that term), focusing on Japanese labels. 50% off...not too shabby. But if you are asking for $258 for a Neighborhood ulility shirt or close to $500 for a pair of Visvim elk-skin moccasins, you better be buying me a fancy dinner with each purchase! I'm not made of money! But if I was, I don't think I would be able to spend myself. Wouldn't that be like, cutting off your finger and giving it away? Ewwww.

The sale floor. I'm afraid to look at the prices at the floor below =(

What the World Needs Now...

Some things to think about:
-If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
-How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
-How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
-Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?
-Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
-Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!
-If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

When Animals Attack!

In other news....Uniqlo is the best store in the world. I know Hoai swears by H&M (Hoai & Marc) but he has not experienced true love. Which is Uniqlo, of course. Anyways added to this blog is the Uniqlock by Uniqlo (see above right). I have no idea what the hell it is supposed to accomplish besides displaying the time, but dammit, it makes my life that much brighter. Just stare at it for 10 minutes. Thank you Uniqlo.
