Easily the best part of the VMAs.
I love to hate Anthropologie furniture. In particular, the way they stage it for their website. There’s this gross fantasy they’ve created of an art student who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a paint-splattered flea market find. It’s like all their customers are aspiring to be Charlotte in Tiny Furniture (a loft-dwelling trust fund dilettante).
They’ve gone off the deep end with the juxtaposition. You know those fashion editorials every fall where models lasagned in Prada swing around street signs in Red Hook? It’s like that, but on acid. The settings are more deteriorated and the designs are more design-y. It’s like shopping from deep within Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table.
If you choose to purchase a piece of Anthropologie furniture, it will only really look right in one of three settings:
1. An alternative gallery space six weeks from opening
2. An urban cabin with faulty electrical wiring
3. A crumbling Southern plantation (soon to be deemed “the new loft” by the NYTimes)
Let’s take a stroll through the Anthropologie furniture section together. What’s for sale today?
A sample of tweets on #Ferguson tonight, 8/13/14
LTMC: "Under what legal authority do a few police in SWAT gear just order a McDonald’s to close?"
I hope Ferguson, Missouri becomes the tipping point for public opinion regarding the militarization of police. The question posed by Chris Hayes—a very liberal commentator—is one that also ought to concern “pro business” Conservatives as well.
John Everett Millais’ Ophelia didn’t take Regina or Damien’s advice seriously and look how she ended up. Don’t be a Mathletes victim.
In Wilhelm Kray’s ‘Winter’ we don’t care who Janis would be, because lesbihonest they’re totes getting it on.
the pro-life movement can be summed up by the fact that one of my friends who’s pregnant was taking the bus home from downtown when all the people from the March for Life were also leaving and she asked a young girl sitting in the priority seating if she could sit down because she’s pregnant and the girl replied, “well I’m really tired, i was at the march all day.”
