Want to Wear: Who needs a Plug? I need a plug #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

I love creps since I was a little one and got my first aid forces, I remember walk-in on the road with my bros in our fresh huaraches and those cherished moments doing the dash in a new pair of creps before buying them, conversely doing the duck walk in order to not crease the patent leather.

In my earlier years I was known even as too hard to buy for because I know what I like and I like it pricy, which got me the name ‘designer designer’. One I wear with honour now because I honour the artists that make what I wear and the masterful craftsmanship at play.

However in this day and age I had no idea I would be writing blogs, and articles for sneakers and quite frankly I don’t want to buy every pair. But I would love to be able to review everything properly and for that I need to wear them.

In comes my need to borrow pairs for a day or lease them to get a feel of them to really inspect the sole tooling and stitch work Among other things you can’t see in images.

If there is anyone out there stylist or buyer or dead-stockist, retailer, seller or archivist or someone with a job title I don’t know yet, if you find my articles enjoyable please lend me pairs of new drops I find pleasing so I can write better articles. You will 100% be named if you want and your store or website promoted because the love needs to be shared

These are going to be a new style of blog though, want to wear creps that are good enough to put on feet stay tuned.

The Principle of the Housing Problem in the Millennial World

We Go Again,

I begrudgingly listen to my peers on things they have to say concerning ways of life they did not invent and try to decipher what it truly means to them. Today I was told that a house and a car is, a stable future & a priority & a pillar of strength and manliness.

I don’t worry that this is how people think, I don’t care what people’s philosophies are because part of mine is do good for humans. I care what people are programmed to think do to a complex, in built, societal norm that was invented for people who can’t think for themselves to accept such if they can’t find a better way of thinking.

That’s what a societal norm is. It’s the dogma of the average and don’t want to think for themselves. Why do I think this pursuit for a house is part of this? Mainly because I get freaked out when people blurt our the same quote but paraphrase it. I can’t lie that’s incredibly scary to me and feel of sorts. I can’t judge and don’t want to take away something from someone who’s clearly not thinking for themselves and I have no real intention of replacing how they think.

As a leader one must lead in a way apart from people, the achievements of the average/the masses are footnotes. That’s not to make anyone feel a type of way I just don’t feel the same way as this it doesn’t mesh with my philosophical or economic belief.

It’s much like the always there conversation I had years ago. What wrong with taking a year out understanding what you want from you and executing that instead we collate the sacrifice of Youth to adult ideas that were only made in the past century and are not the type of ideas that were meant to last. We’re worried about the wrong things, not existentially but in principle.

There’s no life principle or in your history that says having a house or car or 10 acres of land can change you or your families life. If that were true those of us making the worlds top 20% wage minimum of $30,000 would have bought the land in our village by now.

A house doesn’t mean a better life for your children. Even building the economy doesn’t do that, if you want to be part of the money making machines just say so. But trapping yourself into debt and mortgage payment does not free yourself, isn’t the remark of a free person and doesn’t make you seem better to your kids. Especially if at any point a recession hit and you aren’t ready, your direct debit goes up and you’re back up grinding on your knees. Nothing is wrong with any of that if it’s truly what you want you’d do it with a smile and no one could critique you for it.

The arrogance of the bachelor – degrees of separation

We go again,

I’m really conscious and that makes me annoyed by certain things that aren’t conscious something I have to deal with. This is my therapy though, to write about things in hopes it becomes a learning experience for my peers and mentees

This is not the same for my contemporaries, some of my peers are the most educated (by schools) in their family so they have an arrogance about themselves that they align with what they think their position in my community should be.

Me being the man that I am take it seriously when people are educated and I’m proud of my brothers sister and others for making it out.

The Folly

A folly I’ve seen is they believe their “expertise” or subtle learnedness or position in a company or rank of their university is equal to status and thinking that we must listen to them. No. This is the downfall of so many educated people, the entitlement of the people just like those with wealth feel like they’re entitled to the people eat because they made some money.

The folly of my folk who believe that one degree can define their status or allow them access to conversations that don’t concern them they have no information on or only have a surface level interaction with the subject. It’s okay to say you know nothing.

The folly of the newly educated generation is to want to seem like they need to answer for everything or have the answers for subjects that their brain does not compute or relate to. It breeds pedantic behaviour, we don’t need that it’s okay to say you don’t know something.

Fear of the unknown

That’s what people are afraid of to say you are unaware when you are one of the few with a degree. A degree means you learned how to pick up specialised knowledge through a system, you can repeat that but if you haven’t took the time to relearn your specific input on that subject is unnecessary.

It makes me uncomfortable to call out my learned peers on being unlearned when that’s what they pride themselves in. It’s a must though because misinformation is a scary ethic that was used against us to make us think we were lesser so in this Renaissance we must leave it behind if we are to have a better future.


Editors Note

In life there are checks and balances that need to be taken into account when disseminating certain information. The ramifications can be dire for sharing information that’s false or malicious or besmirching so one (like me) takes steps to ensure my opinion is posed as opinion, I am fallible and my statements of facts are just that facts.

Empirical evidence I share is separate to my opinions and philosophy the two can be exclusive but they may also be mixed and I make a conscious effort to align my philosophy to evidence. Which means I do research heavily on topics and edit myself where I can and input facts where the details are needed
