I don’t know, I’m pretty sure you’re going to have to ride the wave. That’s basically it. I don’t know if there is a quick fix and I mean, people can tell you to do a bunch of things to help but in my experience people know what they’re ‘supposed’ to do but are just going to do what they want to do in the end, even if they know better. At the very least you should get some good art out of it?

Yeah okay. I wasn’t sure about it because I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be too ‘controversy for the sake of it’ or too angry for the blog so I decided to err on the side of caution and leave it. Anyway, I figure it’s Kelly’s opinion and everyone is entitled to their own opinion so here it is:

I asked her and she said these exact words:

"awwww, be comfy tell them?!!”

Which I think translates to ‘wear what YOU want to wear because as long as you’re happy, she is’.

Anonymous said: what makes a good photographer? is it one who is able to take nice pictures without any filters or edits after that or one who can transform an ugly picture into a real nice one? ( im just genuinely curious because aspiring to be a photographer )

I don’t know, man. It’s all pretty subjective. I have respect for those with great technical ability accompanied by a good eye for composition.

Anonymous said: hey i've noticed you bought the nike x fragment shoes and i was wondering where did you get them? the pool in jpn?

I got them from Niketown in New York. They have them at 21 Mercer but not very many sizes. Niketown has them but I have to say, the staff on the floor were actually the worst. They were all ‘nah, we don’t have them, not sure what you’re talking about, we don’t do tennis shoes because the US Open isn’t on, etc’. It wasn’t until I showed the checkout guy a product code and a photo of the shoes on the Nike website that he was like ‘oh shit, yeah I will totally get those for you I love those shoes’. 

Not sure how this story is relevant to your question, but you know.
