From fixed geared to the clothing we wear to “JDM” exterior fabrications for your car to cambered “flush” wheels. All in all these listed examples are to show how functional things become unfunctional due to the notion of “being-in” or belonging to a certain trend or fad. It seems to me that most of what we do in our day to day lives are based on “form.” You have to ask yourself, ” Where do we draw the line?, “What is unfunctional in my life”, and “How do we incorporate both functional things and formal things in our lives?”
Lets get it straight no matter who you are or where your from, there’s no doubt in my mind that every person on the face of this Earth wants to be apart of something. That is why we join clubs, pick our own friends, have accounts on facebook, do charity work, and any other activity that you could possibly do.
Back to the subject of the matter.
UnFunctionality seems to have grown to the point of no return. And you may think this is Michael Jackson bad, but for me, I think its a beautiful thing. Now your probably saying, “this motherfucka has lost his mind, whattheheckaslovakia, that ain’t beautiful?” Don’t worry I have a strong stand point on this issue. Having things unfunctional, such as clothing, helps a person define themselves. It allows one to create a style all on their own, with no boundaries or fences. This goes back to the Renaissance, with the revolution of form and art. (Yes, I just used a historical reference)
Those three questions I asked earlier, unfortunately I don’t have answers for. Those questions should be taking past this blog and into your life. (Now I sound like Tom Cruise..)
So if you ever encounter people wearing sunglasses at night or cars with screeching flush wheels or fixie riders struggling to brake, don’t hate, they are choosing to do their own thing. Respect it.
“Just do you.”
