update on a minor quibble…

re a previous post: a minor quibble , i have an update. My (slightly critical) comment eventually got published…many weeks after i made it, so it comes at the end of 297 (nauseatingly sycophantic) comments…so it will never be read, and just to add insult to injury…they completely bastardised it and cut off the end so it makes no sense!!! it appears thus “sorry, but he looks like a million and one other young Milanese men, ultra groomed, ultra conformist and ultra conservative, and for all those who are “in love” with him, forget about mother…”   !!!!! ??? IS THERE NO JUSTICE???

a minor quibble…

Ok, so every now and then i look at the website of incredibly successful style über blog The Sartorialist, for those who don’t know, he snaps photos of people he finds stylish wherever he might be at the time, and he is very successful and influential blah blah… Anyway, the other day he posted a photo of a young milanese male “On the Street Young Milano” to be exact.  I noticed there were over 200 comments to this post so i scrolled down and found banality after banality about how fabulous, stylish and dreamy he was…feeling slightly nauseous i felt obliged to comment that he looked exactly like a million other young milanese men, ultra groomed, ultra conservative and ultra conformist, and for all those who claimed to be in love (there were a lot) he probably still lived with his mum (i am willing to bet money on this), and would do so for long time to come….My comment did not get published…whatever…

i can’t put up the photo so here is a “drawing” instead:

…and here are a couple of completely non related photographs i took last month…

The Royal Scottish Academy on Princes st, it’s not normally red, i guess it was an installation.
