Prêt-à-Porter, Man Town and the pursuit of happiness.

The importance of good choices. And candles.

QUEEN ELIZABETH, WWII:

THE POWERS THAT BE: I’m pretty sure that we would be much farther along in this area were it not for the strong lobbying of the power industry against this. I’ve seen it happen where I live. I realize it isn’t a be-all end-all solution to our energy needs, but it seems like it can play a larger role than it currently does.

UP ALL NIGHT TO GET LUCKY: Yolo. Yeah, that’s the first and last time I’ll cough up that phrase. It just seemed to fit.

SIGN OF THE TIMES: I guess I’d rather have it be that nifty hover-skateboard thingy we all expected to have by now, but this is still pretty noteworthy.

I DON’T EVEN WANT TO KNOW.

But in case you do, here you go.  But wait, there’s more.

DOES IT MATTER….that you have a somewhat novelty-tainted approach to what you do if nobody is going to know you’re doing it? Not that I’m saying people won’t find out. They’ve got big backers. I just wonder exactly what perceptual study they did to figure out there was an audience for this. Big thanks to the Dossier’s favorite tipster, Eric H for bringing this to our attention.

YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO CHANGE YOUR MAJOR: So congrats on that. Me? Not so fortunate.

IT’S A RIDDLE…wrapped in a conundrum boxed in a enigma bathed in WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? Does this mean we aren’t in the Matrix?

LASHES:

AS IF THIS STUFF WASN’T BAD ENOUGH: This.

LIFEHACK OF THE WEEK: You’re never too old to perfect getting your elevator speech perfected, especially when it counts. 

MANNERS: Sometimes you have no idea you’ve stepped in it. So, you know, this is so you don’t step in it.

HE NEVER SAW IT COMING:

STEAL WHEELS: Actually, repurposed wheels. People like this make me feel better about 98% of everyone else.

I SEE DUMB PEOPLE: This dude will never, ever, live this down. Ever. Meanwhile, I’m pretty sure the French judge awarded this guy a 9.75. Impressive. Feel good about the decision’s you’ve made today. Pat yourself on the back.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WORSE: The you-have-got-to-be-kidding-me ridiculous term they coined here, or the people themselves. Ok. Not really. These people are awful. Times infinity. 

BITCHIN’!

OY! What’s this then? But, really, I always wondered.

STOP IT: Just, stop it already. This has gone too far. Extractor? Really? Really? So many jokes…

FASHION WEEK: Prêt-à-Porter anyone? I always enjoy scrolling through these shows but I also understand that I would never find myself actually wearing much of it. And by much of it, I mean any of it. And only because, where?

INCOMING!
