Dysfunctional Living

Probably one of the most prevalent and pervasive themes of my life in the last three years is my complete and utter inability to function in any normal capacity in the so called real world. Sitting in this pigsty of half unpacked boxes, dirty laundry, and garbage, surrounded by stacks of pizza boxes, random computer parts, whirring electronic equipment, and a stolen Unit 3 cart that continues to function as a makeshift table / ironing board / repository of garbage, I realize that something is very wrong with my life.

Nevertheless, given that the worlds of high fashion and incorrigible posers frequently intersect and I am firmly committed to outing, ridiculing, and destroying posers everywhere, I must reluctantly enter the chaos from time to time in order to make a point.
