man toes

okay, the fashion police force need to take to the streets today. yes, it is really nice out. finally. but tell me if this makes sense. a man, well groomed, on the train at bedford. he is wearing a pinstripe blazer and t-shirt and black pants, carrying a duffel bag with fashiony calligraphy on it. sounds acceptable? add mirrored sunglasses.. (ok, not such an alarm bell, but kind of dorx for the train maybe) add.... flip flops. man toes. why? long sleeved, wintery jacket, pants and - - - - flipflops? no. this was followed up with a lady wearing a white, flowing, hippie style skirt (call me old fashioned but a white skirt today in NYC when it is going to be 68 is maybe a bit premature - this was like gauzy not opaque) - + offensive couple. dork man with gameboy and girlfriend who was wearing a half shirt with a bumpy bumpy lily white tummy hanging out and a newsboy cap over bleached white hair. I can't take it. see, i forgot my book for the train and this is what happens.

in other news. relics are partying, behaving for once. ? kind of psyched at the moment. and tonight, i am avoiding the contortion celebration and instead going home to start the new job search. for real. today. tonight. begin now. this beige here is hopeless. art bringing me money - probably hopeless, maybe a few coins. so - it has to be. all good.

reading this i must apologize. i am a terrible 'judger' type. i wish i could turn it off. i should let people be - but i really was into the man toes thing today. so early in the morn.

FB, no time is a good time for man toes unless you are on vacation in the sand or playing frisbee on the grass or something. Suits plus flipflops, tivas, Berkenstocks, etc. = always B.A.D.

Sorry boyz, just laying it out ther for you.

conversely, Uggs + mini skirt = Atrocities against mankind.

FB I'm on a roll. African Batik shirts on white guys with dreads who drum = the 9th circle of hell.

Good for you with the beige rejection. I predict you will find something good that will not slay your soul AND give you relic time. I just know it.

I am in love with my man toes. I am reassembling them and placing them on my head so that everyone can enjoy.

arthur has a HUGE problem with the white dreds. i have to physically restrain him, distract him, when he spots them.

FB you are the funniest! Just this a.m. I was experiencing all the subway fashion annoyances. Like a woman in her late 20's wearing a gauzy skirt and gold lame heels, but the real clincher was the huge purse with various stuffed characters dangling from the zipper and straps.

art doods and code toads! Check this shizzle. (Swiped from anutha forum, naturally)

http://www.complexification.net/

There's some beautiful imagery in there, all based on code.

And yes, if I was a diufferent type of person, I would hold down chumps wherever I spot them and cut off their fucking idiotic whiteboi dreds.

I was also plagued by the subway whistler. So irritating.

pd, when i see disney characters in any form (dangling from bads, on t-shirts, leather jackets, bags) I feel a flash of rage. on kids fine. fine. of course, but adults? explain.

whistling pd? no. no. i had a drug addict say hello mami and give me the eye this morn. i beamed waves of icy scorn. that was the only prob besides the fashion visuals.

krixfort said...

Thanks for the shizzle arthur! This is right up my alley. Love this kind of stuff.

I am very sensitive in the morning hours when on the train. Especially if it is full of wall street types. I am sensitive to overly perfumed people as well.

the rolling parfumery is too much pd. argh.

I am reminded! When I left Hell's Half Acre, I saw at least 6 different people on the SkyTrain/at JFK wearing jap flaps, oh shitz, I mean flip flops. This was odd considering it was, like, 10 degrees with the wind chill. And, with all the rolling luggage, what kind of ding dong would expose their toes to so much potential for crushing? Besides, I don't care how pretty your pedicure is. Like your Brazillian wax, I just don't want to see it.

And that goes for the girls, too.

Shower shoes must stop!
