coming from a designer of graphics and accessories, i’m sure i sound like an asshole bashing anyone’s creativity (eyeroll) OMG EVERYTHING IS SO INSPIRING… but i also come from the punk and rave scene of back in the day NYC. i lived through venues and clubs that don’t exist anymore. i lived through the days of the east village at it’s PEAK. i saw the uprising of classic bands that are now punk legacies in tiny shithole venues. SO, i really don’t care if i do.
this has been my social life, style, friend circle and culture since 1996. when i see it misrepresented or appropriated, i get irritated. authenticity is important to us! draw a fucking line, fashion folk… punks aren’t trying to inspire you, they probably hate you.
