1. On Merchandising and the Importance of Image Cultivation

    Remember when Richard Alpert visited John Locke, handed him six items and then asked “which already belongs to you”?  Yeah, well that has very little to do with the above image, but that shit gave me goose bumps.  What that image reminds me of, however, are those obnoxious "which one of the following three items doesn’t belong" tests administered by kindergarten teachers across the world.

    I mean, seriously?  Isaia, Balmain and…7 FOR ALL MANKIND…?!  Scanning this sale page is like taking a bad bitch home, pretty as fuck (Isaia), taking off her top to unveil an amazing set of hooters (Balmain), only to get down below and find out she has ass pimples or some other whack shit going on down there (you get the idea).

    Sorry, I just had to do it.  Long live NTB and all that jazz.
