this company gave me a free american-made beanie because i have leukemia and they raise money for research
(i'm overage btw)

http://loveyourmelon.com/

but what i want to talk about is how can we use fashion as more of a force for good. right now it's basically the most selfish and egotistical industry in the world of "art" and unlike other forms of art, there's slave labor or something close to it often involved.

young people are usually healthy so they get to be petty and i used to obsess over colognes or hats and shit and now that i'm getting better i'm starting to care about the petty life again but the money in fashion goes to some really shitty people who do basically no good for the world. maybe that's fine because we're just consumers, but can we do more?

i bought a "meme" sweater on black friday and afterward felt so hollow that my money was basically going to some yuppie idiots because i wanted to have a laugh

be thankful for your health

Marketers use cancer to drive sales?

Quite twisted ?

Well, buy at trift stores than. Because this way all your money goes to poor middle-class store owners who struggle through their lives. ;^)

Eh. Fashion just has a spotlight on it. Musical equipment is being made with slave labor. So are paints probably. Pretty much everything cheap is being made with slave labor. It's a universal problem and fashion gets an unfair spotlight put on it, especially considering that most designer shit goes to extreme lengths to clarify where it comes from and how it was produced.

Just don't buy fast fashion and you'll be good. Plus it all looks like shit anyway.

This is some wisdom.

Most shit nowadays is made with slave labor because, as a society, we're too fuckheaded to see the long-term ramifications of that. The drive to lower costs is admirable and good, but it results in disparities between business incentives and social incentives. There's really damn good legal literature arguing that it's the government's role to equalize those - i.e. economically penalizing bad behavior and rewarding good - but too many misinterpret it as a desire to punish industry qua industry.

You want my honest opinion?

Amend the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to consider use of slave labor or child labor as a prima facie corrupt practice. This would continue the trend of extending US jurisdiction over foreign activity (we sure as hell are already doing it anyway) and would push the cost of compliance over to the companies that benefit the most from sketchy foreign labor. Penalize the fuck out of any violation such that (1) it's not economically viable to hire slave/child labor and (2) you pay for any added government structure you create and the added burden on Article 3 courts. Offer a whistleblower bonus to foreign nationals with proof of a violation leading to a conviction.

Bam, problem fucking solved. Retail would be sweating bullets.

Looks like the Comme des Garcons/converse heart. Pretty fresh. Would cop if they made it.
