The Argument Against Nostalgia: Let’s Push Things Forward

Such a relevant article, and yet again validating the reason why I sometimes feel at conflict with my generation. With another reason being why I only use GOTS certified organic textiles among exercising other ethical and eco-conscious behavior, and feel a certain responsibility for the well-being of the present and future state of humankind/our planet. At times, I feel more than half of my generation is in a great state of Devolution.

This is our time to build greater change for the future, our planet, and future generations. The past is an all too convenient bubble to stagnate one’s self in.

I imagine 80 some percent of the Rick Owens cult following probably watched too much FFVII: Advent Children in the early 00’s.


Here’s Tifa’s Advent Children outfit in >1 minute of research for image references. I find these things amusing.

A cosplay that needs the gloves (though there is variation throughout the movie), but otherwise complete:

The Blitzers - Composed by Masashi Hamauzu, Nobuo Uematsu, Junya Nakano - Final Fantasy X OST

TBH the only thing I relate the FIFA World Cup to is Blitzball.

Little beauties.

I can get trapped for hours looking at industrial sewing machines.

I am especially fond of Union Special machines. There are too many beauties to choose to picture in one Tumblr post, for starters take a look at some here.

My obsession is fueled by my German/Austrian heritage, I think - a huge chunk of my relatives were engineers and technical draftsmen (i.e.: “touched,” OCD, anal retentive).

I especially admire this company because of this reason:

Established in 1881, Union Special is the oldest, largest and last Industrial Sewing Machine manufacturing company remaining in the United States, producing “Finest Quality” sewing machines and parts from casting to finished product all under one roof.

I’d imagine the old models are good if not better than(? want to test one if I can…) select machines from different manufacturers produced today - some of these would be particularly nice to try out denim with, leather…

Last two photos are of a Singer Model 81-60 industrial - just throwing it in there for my own personal archival purposes.
