I read the blog and bit about quality and individuality and I have snicker because the idea that having something trendy and designer is an act of mindless conformity.
Basically I see EH and SB/fantasia as gimmicks rather then something of substance. Star Buzz and Ed Hardy seem as far removed our hobby as Green Day is from real punk rock or cheese wiz is from Gorgonzola or politics from honesty
