These boots and those boots on that shore of this river. Wandering boots that have known more roads, beaches, mountains, and far off earth than they ever thought possible. Follow the boots. They know the way.
Nice reminder to open our eyes, and truly see. There is much to miss and it’s up to us to find it. Seek out the miraculous in the mundane. Chase the light and laugh when you never catch it.
See you guys at 2pm st @kingsenglishbookshop in SLC today!
this viewer truly believes Pewdiepie is the king of YouTube and also watches LPers like Markiplier and Jacksepticeye religiously. They call their fave youtubers "Senpai" and are on a constant mission to be the most kawaiiiiiiii of them all. Usually a ten year old boy or a thirteen year old girl.
these people have been gifted with the longest attention span known to man and can sit through multiple thirty minute vlogs a day. They genuinely care about ZALFIE and NARCUS and are constantly commenting "GOOOAAAALLLLSSSS 😍😍" on every single on of Zoe's videos. Their favourite day of the week is Sugg Sunday and they live for cute British accents. Usually an eleven to eighteen year old girl/ (usually lgbtqaa+) boy.(Side note: a more extreme version of this viewer is known as a vlogger hipster, who hoard "underrated" British bloggers)
The relatable nerds:
this person is not only an avid YouTube user, they are also an active Tumblr user. Each one of these phans is a self proclaimed "geek" and usually has a self diagnosed social disorder. They're just so darn awkward and relatable- just like their "sons" Danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil. Don't try tell them they're just twelve year old girls, in their minds they are the proud mothers of two gay, men in their mid to late twenties (who are also in a relationship btw). Don't you dare tell them the fantastic foursome haven't got together in years or they will have a "pheel attack" right on the spot. These viewers are usually 12-15 year old girls.
these are grown people with fully formed opinions on movies, games and books. Wether these YouTube users are sinning videos (ding!), discussing fiction theories or playing shitty games for someone else's entertainment *normal boots jingle plays* each one of their fans has been friend zoned at one point (for being a "nice guy") and are just as clever and witty as they are.Viewers of these channels tend to be in the more mature end of the YouTube pool, being predominantly grown men.
The makeup artists:
it doesn't matter wether this viewer can do this crazy eye makeup or not, they are subscribed to every single beauty guru on YouTube. This person is subscribed to at least five hundred people and just takes days off to sit in the dark and watch an Asian lady turn herself into Justin Beiber. Yes please!
while this person enjoys watching the odd game review, they also are interested to know how to make themselves into Kylie Jenner in five easy steps. This person is usually not affiliated with any one fandom and probably don't know what the V day Video is, but they are usually not problematic and try not to stir shit with any YouTube fandom they've been warned against.
Because I'm A Wild Animal: Affordable Wes Anderson Inspired Looks II
Damn, coming up with Wes Anderson looks is harder than I thought. When it comes to the costuming in Wes Anderson movies it’s always very specific and in many cases custom made. What you’ll also notice is that if an outfit is a bit more traditional, let’s say a blazer and trousers for instance, it has very specific details that can make it harder to replicate or even catch the vibe for. Because the outfit (like most of Anderson’s work) is defined by the details. So this is my attempt going forward. This is what I can throw together based on what’s currently in my closet.
Whole lot of earth tones in the Fantastic Mister Fox. I actually don’t really wear that much brown so this was a pretty difficult movie to put together. I’m going to watch it again soon so I may come up with another look from that later.
(Not Really) A Fantastic Mr Fox Look
Jacket: J Crew Factory ($50) Sweater: Polo Ralph Lauren ($40) Shirt: H&M ($15) Herringbone Tie: H&M ($25) Jeans: J Crew Factory Driggs ($45) Boots: Steve Madden ($150) Watch: Orient Ray ($150) Sunglasses: $10
Total: $485 ($335 without the watch)
So this is not really based on a specific outfit from the film. It’s more based on the overall feel. But I think it has the color palette and textures to fit into the movie. I can see one of the characters possibly wearing something like this.
8 weeks of demolition and deconstruction of the house I call a home. Now I stand on muddy frozen ground, ready to rebuild and readjust. New walls to tell new stories, my stories, and the stories of all the ghosts before me with the pieces I will add. Endure the tearing down, and be graced with joy in the rebuilding.
Sometimes you accidentally take a photo with your phone without ever knowing it and you find it later. Sometimes that photo looks like wanderlust and reminds you of the adventures you found. Old boots on old dirt roads, the rocks worn smooth from the footsteps. From the rain.
They keep going, wandering, and it feels like forward. I never know the where, I never know the when, and I dare not care not of the why, I just follow them. I will always follow them. Join me, join them, and there is no telling where we will end up.
