BROTHA FROM ANOTHER MOTHA Tay Trong

I discovered this video awhile back from stlyelikeu.com and I don’t know what it is but it makes me so happy everytime I watch it. Maybe it’s his accent, his creativity, his mentality, or the fact that he’s Vietnamese too but I know for sure we think very a like when it comes to dressing. Blew. My. Mind. Also the fact that we like the same designers and do DIYs just.. just…..!!!! You can take my brain and use it as your loofah anytime Tay, just ask. 

I want to meet people like this. They don’t have to be exactly like him, just people with creative/design sensibility and it wouldn’t hurt if they had similiar tastes as me or at least know where I’m coming from so I dont feel so alienated because sometimes… I feel… like… a freak- there I said it. “Ohmygaaaa she needs a huuug!!!” No no. Honestly it’s ok, I like it sometimes -_^ But DAMN can someone talk Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Helmut Lang, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Maison Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto, Celine, Philip Lim, Alexander Wang, Camille Skovgaard, Ann Demeulemeester, and Gareth Pugh to me?!?! That would be the equivalent to having sex with my ears no joke. And I mean I’m not even listing underground independent designers or anything here either so check yo self! Where are you people? I know there’s got to be some here in Winnipeg, or is this place really that small?

I hope I’m not offending my friends I have now because I have no intentions of doing so. I couldn’t ask for more loyal and great friends I’ve met that can make me laugh like no one else can and I wouldn’t change a thing, period. But I do have this creative driving force, interest, addiction, profession, (whatever you want to call it) that I want to get very serious about and have it become a part of my life. And this side of me can get a little lonely at times and needs a bit of attention. Yes I know this is what friends are for, but then it’ll just end up as a conversation with myself, or I’ll have to “explain” everything that I’m talking about- yea, it’s just not the same.

I’m not trying to find people who, “understand me,” or “the one” I just think it would be fun to find people to dance the same dance as me you know? In a perfect world, we could discuss thoughts and shit, trade clothes and shit, make babies and shit, go to shows and shit, critique shit and be just as equally excited as I am. Key thing: it’s got to come from an authentic real self interest because I can tell.

By the way may I say, I don’t expect to be understood. It’s no person’s job to “understand” someone. The mind is complex as hell (well not all everyone’s I guess,) and some people hardly understand themselves which they need to focus on first. I just don’t want to hear “no one understands me!” It’s true. No one does. Fact of life. Get over it.
