There are certainly people who can take real happiness from that. But I doubt many industries have anywhere close to as much peer pressure as the fashion world.

Most people who attempt to dress at the very cutting edge are doing it because of the immense pressure for them to be at their very best, all the time. It has less to do with their own desires regarding style, and more to do with their desire to be noticed. And I don't mean that in a super narcissistic way (though that's true for some).

I mean that few industries are as much of an uphill battle as fashion is. Most of them are actively trying to advance through fashion culture, and being impeccable all the time has far more to do with their social defenses while they climb that ladder than it does with personal happiness in the moment. And once you have people's eyes on you, you can't stop being perfect. Because the first thing they're going to do is note every single one of your flaws. And when I say fashion culture, I don't necessarily mean actual work in the industry. I just mean the social spheres that high-level fashion is a focus of.

I'm sure some of them DO just do it for pleasure. And most of them (hopefully) don't hate it. But I doubt the fashion itself is the ends for most of them - it's the means to the end, with the end being social status.

I think if you go look at the creme de la creme of any subculture there's going to be that pressure to be the best although I think saying it's not about the fashion for most of them is a very hasty conclusion given the very minimal information.

If we're going to be talking about the type of people who wear avant garde pieces, we're going to be talking creme de la creme.

If were just talking about people with an ordinary interest in fashion, then I agree.

Oh also, Xsarus. Now that I see you're stalking this thread, I've never liked fish or seafood in general but I've been watching a lot of Masterchef Australia lately and I feel like I'm missing out.

You've lived 'round here and you're a pretty good cook so can you point me in the right direction?
To give some more info, I don't mind salmon but I don't really like it either though I'm not sure whether that's because of the texture, the taste or because I haven't had it prepared well or fresh enough. Also, I unfortunately lack an oven of any kind at the moment.

I hated that whole iLevel ******* going on. Usually the worst people were terrible players anyway, the kind where I've seen people in utter **** gear outperform them in every way while they go around jerking off to their gear.

Even for the creme de la creme I think it's a hasty conclusion to make. I mean those same people had they grown up in America would have probably gone the way of the goth ninja which looks a whole lot less out there compared to the Japanese stuff.

I don't miss it at all. More than once we gave the last couple of slots in our raid (we were a 10-man raid with like 7-8 regulars) away to decent people who didn't have the gearscore yet, or not on their particular alt. Nothing like having someone thank you for helping them get an achievement "so now I can actually pug something!" While I'm sitting there shaking my head at how this person, who didn't cause a single problem all night, couldn't get into a group.

Yeah, don't miss that side of WoW at all.

The only fun PuG raids I've done were the wintergrasp raids led by my old GM. He usually did 6 or so in a row because he had too many alts so those were a frenzy of relogging for everyone as they were first come first serve and usually half or a little over half would be filled with just really good raiders (people from the world top 10 guild on the server and such) the lucky random people in that raid were almost always amazed at how their dps was so high and they were still at the bottom of the charts.

Look at the bright side, this is an opportunity to get your car washed by the **** girls at the car wash.








What, they're real, right?


Edit: KITTY PICTURES!
I am actually genuinely happy with the first one. She's staring straight into the camera and showing a bit of her beautiful eyes and I really adore the 50mm f1.4, I'm so happy I spent the extra 200 euro on it over the 50mm f1.8.

love that lens. I was playing with it the other day, and it's fun.

I'm still partial to my 35mm tokina macro, but that's a different purpose.

The quality difference between the f1.4 and the f1.8 is pretty massive. Of course the f1.8 is only a third of the price but it's also made out of plastic instead of metal, the Nikon one has/had a light flaw at a high f numbers, they're very slow to focus (and loud) but then again, it's a $100 lens and nothing else comes close to that.

You'd have to go on a serious killing spree to make a dent in the problem.



But I do feel sorry for you, it's probably a pretty homophobic environment too and you don't even have the saving grace of drinking enough so you won't have to remember.

The one saving grace is that another friend is driving down from the north, so she won't be drinking either.
