Actually, reminds me of my RISD days.

But then, NYC, San Franscsico and the like are like that.

Clothes can be fun. But these days I am too busy to look in the mirror.

Well, NYC has only one boundary, that followed rigidly by all lefties, now second nature.

That, and no 32 ounce sodas. And no guns.

Okay, there are a shitload of boundaries and corrals.
But you can wear all sorts of fun clothes!!!

Goffman would definitely appreciate this visually discrepant presentation of self in everyday life. It's kind of a renegade performance art by obvious narcissists. Subversion on a tiny scale when contrasted with the establishment-approved subversive art of Laurie Anderson.

The only girls under 90 in that clip are guys.

Shucks. I was hoping it would be this Bill Cunningham. The one of "Barack Hussein Obama" fame.

People who make excessive style statements signal to me superficiality, an empty shell. I'm rarely wrong.

Somehow appropriate that he used the word corrals. Freudian?

Clothes are a warning sign.
