/fa/ its time we had a serious talk, there is a prevailing and pervasive problem on /fa/ that is severely limiting many of the users intellectual, social and cultural advancement.
its a multifaceted issue that cant really be reduced to a single diagnosis. today we're going to focus on one part of a broader, insidious and destructive disease that has stricken the majority of the western general population, and a sizable percentage of you, users of /fa/.
today's feature article will be focused on the sickness, if you will, that is pop culture worship and general mediocrity.
its vacuous slimy tentacles have have invaded every aspect of this board, from the maligned 'inspo' threads, to daily kanye 'the uppity manlet' west and cara del 'ugly short pig who only has a job because of daddy' levine posting, 'androgynous' threads and other insipid monstrosities that /fa/ mistakes for 'board content.'
it goes further than this however, it effects the way your young, impressionable minds interpret and process information. your cognitive framework with which you explicate and decipher external information, be it complex paradigms or the most basic rudimentary discourse, is skewed and fucked from a lifetime of media and institutional drip feeding. you're products of a system designed to turn you into drooling, corn fed good goyim morons.
and i know what you're thinking "not me! i am different, i only eat salmon!" or perhaps "spare me your dime store 'wake up sheeple' diatribe kid, i go to art school - i dont need you to tell me stuff"
but this is important, so important that i am writing this out for you dweebs on my OWN precious, valuable time :)
some of you are beyond saving, some of you dont want to be saved, some of you are on the cusp and just need that little extra push and some are already there - these are my homies, me boys, me lads, big ups.
enough rhetoric though, what are we actually discussing here, whats the crux, the nuts and bolts of the issue? its time to stop tolerating it, stop enabling it: no more shit, no more kanye west, no more discussions about this autistic barely sentient manlet, every time some retard OP tells you to post 'fa celebrities' in his shit thread ignore it - if you see it being flooded with 5'8 rappers who dress like shit and hate you, tell the poster what you think about that. turn off your TV, logoff off facebook, if you see one of these new retard trips who have no business being on 4chan let alone posting with a trip(reee, snow, laserface, doop doop, versace etc) tell em its ogre, the jig is up, they're trash, ignore their shit.
stop celebrating mediocrity and undertake a mandate of self improvement of the mind and body, fashion and art isnt an asap rocky song, nor is that cunt 'fashionable' or well dressed. stop listening to rap, stop listening to shit, stop talking about shit, being an emaciated feminine loser isnt attractive, being a 'trendy' mongoloid who hates himself, cant defend himself, masturbates 14 times a week to porn and has a weak erections and pathetic cumshots isnt what life is about.
you might respond "hey fag this is just about clothes! i am here to dress nice for my hot date and thats it! its just the internet loooser!" spare me, i've seen the 'feel' threads, ive seen the bemoaning, self loathing and self pity that permeates this board, if you're a crossposting retard who's here because he needs help tying his shoe laces thats fine, this aint about you. /fa/ is unique among the 4chan boards in the sense that it encompasses a lot of overlapping lifestyle paradigms, and this is at the heart of it all, if the host is sick everyting that it produces will be tainted, this board is sick, its retarded, it needs a purging, maybe in the subsequent vacuum we can replace it with some productive and beneficial shit.
The problem with you saying we're all brainwashed by the media is that we're all users on 4chan. I doubt any of us watches and follows the culture promoted by mainstream media and news. Being on the internet means you can selectively choose what affects you while being on 4chan already makes you a social outsider. Also, I thought we all knew communism doesn't really work, which seems like the political undertone of your post
>The problem with you saying we're all brainwashed by the media is that we're all users on 4chan. I doubt any of us watches and follows the culture promoted by mainstream
media and news.
was true 6 years ago but 4chan has changed.
judging by the numbers in the black hair generals i dont think its just asians ;)
You're naive. 4chan is hardly a secret club anymore-- so many normal people use it. Half of these guys are always posting about celebs and kim kardashian. Is this your first time on this board?
And if you think he's advocating communism you're literally retarded.
It's weird too. They get so damn mad at pig "ten dollar sucky sucky" fuck like they have no idea how to filter lmao.
They're just entry level fashionistas that consistently put their lame politics before their hobby.
>Also, I thought we all knew communism doesn't really work
A lot of highschoolers keep on spouting "REAL communism hasn't been done; if it didn't work it wasn't real communism", so there's still a huge influx of marxists.
Just look at the cucks at /leftypol/
>stop enabling it: no more shit, no more kanye west
You got the wrong board, >>>/mu/ is over there
go bitch at them for it; and the "Kanye love" here is just KTT fuccasses infesting the place. Go there and complain to them, otherwise not much "pop culture celebrity worship" as you think
>stop listening to rap
I make fun of black people on the 4chins occasionally but there's too much different hip-hop to "stop listening to it", there's a lot of hip-hop that's saying what you're saying you know.
Anyways maybe if you didn't write like a middle schooler people would take you more seriously, but stop thinking you're "enlightened" over a perspective, almost as bad as the JW's that knock on my door.
Here comes the worthless loser pigfuck who will spend between 4 and 6 hours of every single night sitting on 4chan instead of going out and living life. What a sad, shitty existence.
And to make things even worse? He does it for free.
pigfuck I'm on your side. i report a lot of threads for being off-topic and having nothing to do with fashion, but nothing is being done about it. it only takes me like 5 seconds to browse the front page before I decide to spend my time elsewhere it's gotten so bad
>is _____ effay?
>effay room inspo
>gook comfy core inspo
>those dumb threads where ppl just post generic images of what they usually wear in a chart
most of /fa/ is high schoolers and college age boys, so i guess I can't expect anything other than immaturity and insecurity, but it's gotten out of control lately
do you know how to use quotation marks? lol..
learn how to write like someone worth more than the unemployed muppet you come across as and someone "might" actually read all this rubbish
it's sad but also entertaining to see how addicted this poor dude is to 4chan and his lame ass internet personality. probably all he has
What really needs to be adressed are the people asking whether to cop ASOS bombers, zara fake leather shoes, face geos and discussing their sk8 his and what they wear to go skateboarding
It's evident they are not adults, either physically or mentally, yet they are becoming the norm
Not really, pointing out common things people do but in a negative connotation doesn't automatically make you "right".
Yeah /fa/ isn't exactly the best place, and average /fa/ggots do have a really retarded mindset, but writing a rant filled with immature rhetoric, pointing out the rhetoric, then continuing spewing rhetoric isn't exactly spreading "enlightenment".
>you guys aren't self-aware, but me? I'm aware, listen to me, look how self-aware I am
You're not. Stop talking. I really hope he's receiving proper financial benefits because I'm assuming he wasted a lot of time on this.
Nail on the head. He's probably an asocial nerd in real life so this outspoken mad man character he has concocted is the only way he can truly express all the impotent frustrations he has built up inside him. That's all he is though, impotent and frustrated. Typical /pol/ user: all talk, no walk.
yeah, but it's tough. I don't know how to combat it besides shitposting in their threads and telling them to leave. i honestly considered becoming a janitor so I could clean up this mess, but when I was informed of what my compensation would be it just wasn't enough given the time i know i'd have to invest
>young minds ripe for molding.
i know, hopefully some can change their minds. sometimes i wish we could get all /fa/ users together in a room IRL just to see what they look like. that aussie meetup was a good version of that. those kids needed to be laughed out of here.
You know I don't, for the most part, disagree with what you're saying, but you shoehorned a lot of extra stupid shit that doesn't have any relation with what you're saying. Also you write like a child.
shitposting in their threads is actually an effective means of deterrence, problem is the janitors seem to want to protect the stupid and the shit. go into a black hair general and derail it? banned. go into a 'most /fa/ rapper' thread and derail it? banned. its a bizarro world where the shit is sanctioned and the good is discouraged(kind of like the real world :))
other than shitposting and derision the most effective means is to shift the popular consensus, its a self perpetuating feedback loop: if the predominant board culture is one of rappers, cheap clothes, dumb kids and cara worship than that will continue unless a conscious effort is made to change it. this is the beginning of that process, now that the mod has agreed to not delete my shit provided i dont go overboard, i can invest time in posts/threads knowing itll stay up longer than an hour.
>other than shitposting and derision the most effective means is to shift the popular consensus, its a self perpetuating feedback loop
Did you literally just look at a thesaurus?
Anyways, if you actually want to be effective on the loose chance you're not a troll, just call them autistic faggots. 100% more effective then making them think they're above you, a fedora memester.
Beat me to it.
the sheer amount of people who need their hand held through every purchase absolutely astounds
we are not they're personal stylist. they need to learn to make decisions on their own instead of having to ask the internet if they should or should not buy a cheap ass pair of vans or a basic tee from h&m
what is wrong with the youth today? whey do they need an anonymous image board to make their choices for them? these people are just beyond help
>what is wrong with the youth today? whey do they need an anonymous image board to make their choices for them? these people are just beyond help
the whole culture of 4chan has degraded, due in large part to mod/janitor influence. at one point in time people lurked before they posted, if they didnt they risked being ridiculed/embarrassed(ridiculed on the internet how awful, right? it worked though) eventually that means of quality control became less effective with the influx of users from reddit/9gag/somethingawful/tumblr etc. + increased mod intervention.
people now feel entitled to post their shit, their feelings, their banalities no matter how insipid.
He's never had a formal education, that much is obvious.
This is what happens when a teenager educates himself on the internet, primarily on message boards and other hubs where barely literate working class dupes congregate, and he grows up with all of the faux importance that marketing companies have developed in weak-minded consumers and on top of that he honestly believes that these banal and insipid opinions he's absorbed are: 1) his own; and 2) somehow worth repeating over and over again to the point where he has literally logged 1000's of hours posting on 4chan to an audience of roughly 10 people.
It's really quite fascinating to see how disturbed and delusional this poor man has become over the years. If he is in his mid-20s now, can you even imagine when he hits his 30's?
Thank god for 4chan for giving the rest of us a looking glass into such bizarre and pathetically entertaining personalities.
what a riot that was
everything wrong with the modern male embodied perfectly in one trip.
receding chin + obvious mouth breather
'i am just a happy dude, chill out, be cool, one love, peace for all mankind'
self absorbed faggot who posts nudes on reddit for men he probably was deluded enough to believe were real women
not to mention he dressed like shit.
doop doop, reee/not user and snow need to go next.
....hey man....i just want to kill some niggers
and look good doing it
Welp, I took the time to read this, and I can actually agree with you. Kanye is a hack, a frustrated manlet, and has no education in the arts. His designs are rip offs of other designers, and anyone buying his stuff is a retard without a gram of taste. Cara is a hack too ofc, and is facially a 4/10.
>being an emaciated feminine loser isnt attractive, being a 'trendy' mongoloid who hates himself, cant defend himself, masturbates 14 times a week to porn and has a weak erections and pathetic cumshots isnt what life is about.
But then again, every 4chan board is shit, every 'lifestyle'-forum in the world is shit, it's just gradients.
So, good diagnosis, but it's not like it matter or like I care. I found out what sneakers to buy next, so goodbye for the next 6 months /fa/.
>If he is in his mid-20s now, can you even imagine when he hits his 30's?
kind of puts it all into perspective :/
having said that fat old losers like sieg are already 30 are rapidly approaching it. and just get more pathetic rather than disappearing. they need places like this I guess heh
i've been bullying doop doop since he started coming here, and several others have joined me. but he keeps coming back
btw, what do you think of pinrolls? i swear 90% of the dudes in WAYWT threads just roll up their shitty pants and think "oh so fashun"
i'm an old enough fag to remember when /fa/ preferred stacks and pants that actually fit
nowadays it looks like all of /fa/ is waiting for a flood or s/t
i think pinrolls look absolutely ridiculous 99% of the time tbh
it doesnt fit in the frame, ive tried. ill be posting more pics of recent buys when they arrive.
closest i ever came was fitting the sweats and some of the jackets into a pic but this was a year ago so its a lot bigger now.
agree with all of these except palewave, comfy and hair.
these are all valuable threads if they are done right, they discuss styles and designers well. the only problem is they are posted in by shit people
the other ones are truly awful
peng, i disagree enormously with your dangerous politics but your collection is wild
btw did you buy the pcl hoodie for like £250/$375 about a year or so back?
bc i am still mad i missed that on ebay
Well, I agree with just about everything you've said thus far, but keep in mind this is 4chan, and as such it will always be shit. The best you can do is to just turn out content and hope some of it will be worthwhile. That'll do pig, that'll do.
You have special needs kid eyes.
Not full blown retarded, you just look like you had and adult accompany you into class to help you follow along.
Like you can understand what things are significant and have a vague idea of their significance, but lack a good ability to understand things or draw conclusions.
you are handsome though
Agreed. The only thing I would add to this, that people need to wake up in such ways that people who are considered to be cool by the standards of this board are cool because they did something like music or something else that is not fashion related, therefore fashion enthusiasts who aspire to look like aforementioned cool people and don't do anything at all, just dress like them are all tryhard faggots. If someone is really a fashion enthusiast, one should go all DIY, since that is grassroots fashion.
The lack of DIY threads recently strengthens your statement, so, ave pigfuck, I guess
and /fa/ enables his shit by giving him attention
But it is likely that Pig is trying to compensate for some pecieved inadequacy through his excessive displays of erudition. His incessant claims of being dominant tell us that although he could easily find peers who are just as eruidite and verbose and eager to debate as he, he prefers to be lord over youths here because he can profess superiority much easier here. His hostile quips are much less imppressive to educated adults. The playing field wouldn't be skewed in his favor if he was on /b/ or some egghead forum. He also seems to have no desire for feedback of any sort. He also appears to be under the impression thst he is the onli sentient being here and that because others don't use fa as their personal journal then they must surely be inferior. His inferences are little more than projection bias much of the time.
The blatant misogynism I am confronted with when trying to reason with the tots on the other hand....Really this is truly a great time to be a living woman.
Could you expand on what you suggest as a positive alternative to the trends you mention? Sure we can stop engaging with A$AP threads and the like but unless we oppose it with something active, all we leave is a void. How are we to engage with fashion in a way that opposes personal and cultural degeneration?
just tell him you want his dick, stop dragging it out holyshit
spam the board with tsundere little kid nonsense for weeks
dude is handsome, wearing grails and ripped
fap to him and move on bitch shit
>i've been bullying doop doop since he started coming here, and several others have joined me. but he keeps coming back
do you realize how mind boglingly stupid you sound?
have fun being the angry nerd in the corner, complaining about peoples pinnrolls
I've been on /fa/ for over 3 years and I've noticed an increase of people talking like niggers and having overall very vapid and hypebeast tastes here, anyone else see that? The threads about distasteful "swag" sneakers actually get a significant amount of posts now.
>fap to him
last time i checked i didn't have a dick
This has not been dragging out for weeks though it likely will. He knows that this isnt passive aggressive tsun tsun bullshit and it irritates him. He's drowning in jelly.
As soon as I mention Knoch or Jaco or Joon jealousy rears it's ugly head. He thinks thathe has never encountered me b4 but we've talked several times about a year ago. Those experiences are firmly planted in my mind. So are the countless times that he's tried to court butterfaces like himself. He is well acquainted with rejection and dreads it therefore he targets the feeble minded, malleable and unattractive. Fucking pathetic.
changing browsers soon as this pne keeps clearing trip
I know you find me repulsive sieg
i hold nothing against you for that
it's ur opinion whatevs
ur piggy dickriding is getting tiresome though
I dont know if you want my support or not.... You want to hurt me but I don't really feel hurt by you. I want to understand why you cant accept my support. I don't think you are some charity case. I genuinely feel the urge to reach out and lessen whatever burden you may feel. If that makes sense.
That's exactly what she'd want you to think. But though people acquire more exp and knowledge over time and their personal traits change based on whatever lifestyle they lead their core personality does not undergo some kind of rebirth. If the bitch has no intention of educating herself now that's unlikely to change.
once a pleb always a pleb
i legit have nothing better than do than try to insult you for no real gain or loss, because i am a horrible person wth too much time on my hands
but what are you hoping to accomplish?
you're trolling 2 random guys
one who lives in Australia
one in Germany
who are both known for being substantial to the knowledge base of a fashion board on a garbage website.
you're pretty much making this place less effective for the 16-19 year olds who desperately need those 2 around
at least i have enough sense not to intervene with that system
fuck you are the male version of the narrator ftom natsuo kirino's grotesque
I have no trouble reading convoluted philosophical waxing from the likes of Milton but couldnt make it 1/4 of the way through Grotesque
Shit highlighted errything
that is wrong w jap
there is no system in place in fa as the board's members are from western countries who are not collectivist societies
Standing out from the crowd and rebelliousness is not shunned here
I am not trolling Knoch. Calling him hot and being autismal af around him doesnt really affect him.
I think. I dunno, he replies in a very cryptic manber with winking emotes and such. I dunno is it's b/c of the lsnguage barrier or not...
>tfw german bsbsman were giving me dirty looks when i was in an airport in munich. I was wearing yoga pants while they seemed to be wearing over 9000 layers when it wasnt even fall yet
its been the same sieg since the beginning, but siegs a public trip so youll occasionally get some other people on the trip
you can tell when its the original one though, which it usually is
they were wondering why a fat chick with poorly dyed hair was wearing skin tight yoga pants
or maybe you have a nice ass idk
fat chicks have nice asses sometimes
can you stop changing your tipcode?
i am trying to filter you
but i keep reading your wall of text because it doesn't make any grammatical sense and i always attack everything like a game and am playing try to decipher this poorl written drivel
u think that knoch and pig are contributing something to the board by...setting some kind of an example for the fuccbois to follow?
I think pig is right when he assumes that the sports suffers from being too much of a follower to the cult of personality tbh. Neither of them have demonstraited substantintal knowledge on manufacting methods, "murketing", quality materials and all else that pertains to garment production to the extent you have in the past. I've looked into your claims and you dont appear to be trying to troll the board mostof the time.
and they do
knoch to a lesser extent, but he knows how to source harder to find vintage and/or vintage reproduction items for his own reasons
pig knows quite a bit about older helmut and raf pieces and is an asset to the board
you.....just post about how badly you want to have sex with them and how stupid you think the young men on this board are.
look inward, you're the one nobody likes
you're not an asset to this place or the kids who could use the help offered by pig
*you.....just post about how badly you want to touch Knoch's face
fix'd it 4 ya bb
I do not presumme to be an asset to the board but I posses quite a bit of knowledge useful to the board as well.
I'm here because I am like to record trends as they emerge and I admire the omnipresent idiocy and devil may care attitude fuccbois seem to have
It sounds hella dorky but I have a ravenous appetite for knowledge and am an autodidact
people only hate helpful trips because they didn't like reading the truth about their appearance.
i don't know what this bitches problem is, i hope she drinks anti-freeze in the short future
What knowledge do you have that this board would find useful?
Do you even understand fashion?
Do you even know ANY designers?
Do you even own ANY designer clothes?
and no lolita fashion/cgl does not count
the only thing u do to this board is ruin it even more by contributing to le Androgynous Inspo threads :D
no go away
>stop celebrating mediocrity and undertake a mandate of self improvement of the mind and body, fashion and art isnt an asap rocky song, nor is that cunt 'fashionable' or well dressed. stop listening to rap, stop listening to shit, stop talking about shit, being an emaciated feminine loser isnt attractive, being a 'trendy' mongoloid who hates himself, cant defend himself, masturbates 14 times a week to porn and has a weak erections and pathetic cumshots isnt what life is about.
glad to see that the first thing i saw when back here was that at least someone in this board realizes how pathetic the situation here is
u also need highlight the dangers of endocrine disruptors and the importance of a dairy free diet
wasted knowledge though
this board really is infested with estrogenized flouride drinking suburban morons
i honestly wouldnt bother
also sickening that this board has become hypebeast 2.0 with nothing but flyover state teenage mouthbreathers who dont even own a single designer piece and a zionist janitor allowing counterfeit garment and fast fashion threads to continually propagate
>muh sexual prowess
>muh manry hostility
>why wont these uggo fuccgurls have sex w/ me
>I'm fucking trying. I am. Plz let me subjugate u.
Yeah, he's alpha af alright. What a great role model.
Did his gf manage to escape the dungeon he keeps her in or what?
This board is in a state of pure shit
Pigfuck is a little better than the average poster but starting an OP doesn't mean you have to throw adjectives onto every word, be blunt.
Don't have much words for you guys because the truth is you all need to just enjoy your wardrobes and cultivate them without having any shame in what you want to wear. That's not to say you should do away with taste.
And the trip above me needs to go ANON and stop posting until they see how things work around here
>just enjoy your wardrobes and cultivate them without having any shame in what you want to wear. That's not to say you should do away with taste.
weird how people think they can get away with issuing completely contradictory advice lol
The majority rules anon. If a sufficient number of people want to make threads about obtaining unsustainably produced knockoffs then the mods can't realky do much about it without alienating a significant portion of an already slow ass board.
Fuccbois proclaim an adherence to a certain aesthetic as well as foster a sense of belonging through their consumption. What could be a viable substitute for that?
"Consumption isn't promiscuous or random, at the whim of the marketplace or the urging of marketers. Rather, it is focused on what is personally suitable and expressive"
can you id when this helmut lang jacket is from
looks very similar to a couple military looking jackets produced in 96 i've seen
looks like actual lang to me but i'm pretty inexperienced
why do you give so much of a fuck seriously its just some dumb website full of teenagers
get out and be "alpha" or whatever the fuck you think you do
it's kind of pathetic honestly you're still here in your mid twenties
lrn 2 2015 bruh, we're all cucks, best to live with the fact and embrace it!!!!!!
I hope my gf lets me cum soon, it's late, I hope she's not out with her girlfriends(aka black men)
>mfw by responding you're giving this depressed crazy attention-whore weeb lesbian the attention she craves
good job "babe"
>Two whole posts of butthurt just to say "stop posting what I don't like!"
Do you really think you're gonna chance the board with this shit? If you don't like it, you can go elsewhere, it's as simple as that.
now imagine him saying this
he probably thinks hes really smart
>mfw pigfuck was right
this is not something i expected today
i also just realized my feet overpronate what the fuck
pigfuck, how do I fix knock knee/recurvatum?
Is it indicative of something?
I played sports and shit as a kid and I'm not really sure what would cause it
yes, i dont have a monopoly on this information dude just google it, you're on the internet right?
"soy + testosterone"
"plastics + bpa + testosterone"
sometimes i wonder how you people found 4chan in the first place.
to avoid it you need to eat organic food, locally produced if possible, avoid most gmos and other mass produced supermarket shit. if you're in US this is difficult, other countries like Aus have a 'foodie' culture that attracts hipster wimps and middle class wannabe bourgeois but the benefit is you get great food free of shit.
it depends, clinical knock knees ie faults of your actual bone structure requires surgery and shouldve been fixed as a child.
what most of you suffer from is a combination of muscular atrophy and over pronation resulting in a knock kneed appearance that can be remedied with exercise and conscious correction.
google guides on how to fix it but in short you need to concentrate on displacing your weight evenly on your foot as you walk as well as strengthening your leg muscles, leading with your hips as your walk etc.
Ready for your next ban Pigfucker?
>/pol/ the thread
I don't really know what to say so here's pigfuck's desktop
Lel that's king manlet to you, and your pathetically low testosterone levels are only matched by your monthly bank statements
If you weren't so fucking poor and tasteless we might actually get along, because I agree with a lot of your ideology on other issues
I'm white as porcelain you autist. It takes a sharp eye to see the quarter Greek in me.
You're one to talk. You're sullying the name of your entire race
I've seen it too. It's been getting worse and worse with the popularity of trap music and a fashionable image being a major component in modern rap music marketing. Imagine if there were a rapper wearing man-skirts and being concerned about designer clothing when In Da Club dropped. They'd get nowhere. Now it's the opposite I guess.
