Very cool lookbook! Love the creative use of the yarn. Very nice!
So, in the last days the actor paul walker, who played in the fast and furious movies died in a car accident. And there are some things that really anoy me about the whole attention this is getting.
This is going to be a bit hard, because I don’t want to be rude or unsensitive, I don’t want to say that this instance isn’t sad, I’m sorry for his family and friends.
I just don’t get it, that there is such a “hype” now, get used to the fact that people die! Everyday! And yes they also die in car accidents. Everyone posts some RIP Paul Walker photos, without really thinking about what they do. The loss of Paul Walker is not any more sad or important than the loss of anyone. It sounds harsh, of course, but let me get this straight, there is a guy, you most likely never met him in real life, he played some roles in movies, not the best ones in my opinion, but they had a big audience, and didn’t really take any influence to the world besides that, so ask yourself: has he really enrichened your life in any way? Is it really appropriate to talk about him in your facebook posts, your blogs and newspapers, like he was a close friend of yours?
He died ( let alone that there was another dude in the car who died the exact same way, if I’m right, and nobody gives a sh*t about him ) and no doubt this is sad, as sad as ANY death is, but think about it, even if you were a big fan of him, even if you had some sort of affection to this person, it is most likely that you were not close to him in any way. You will be sad for a few days, and you will get over it, because even if you admired him, even if he was a hero of your childhood or something like that, it is not like you just lost your best friend, or brother, and you shouldn’t be acting like you did.
Because even if you loved him, there are thousands of people like you, and you have to get used o the fact that Paul Walker didn’t only not know you, he also most likely didn’t really care about you. That is just the way people act or have to act as soon as they reach a certain level of fame, I’m really not judging.
I’m adressing this not so much at the hardcore paul walker fans, but more at those guys (or girls) who just kind of jump on the train and think they have to post some gifs of paul walker turning around and leaving the frame and talk about how much their life was changed by a Fast An Furious movie. You know well how silly this sounds.
Because those people now went one step further and use this tragic event to advertise the charity organisation of Paul Walker.
I see posts all over tumblr and twitter telling me to donate because “It would be what he wanted us to do” or “It was his last will”.
Now that is just wrong, in my opinion. I think you should donate to a charity because you believe in their ideologies or aims, and not because of that guy you saw in a movie once you kind of liked.
I don’t go and promote my kickstarter campaign, telling you to donate because my friend said he wants you to do it. Because in the end, there is no difference, don’t you think? Paul Walker was a guy who did his job, he was loved by friends and family and it is not really supportive to them when you post your RIP posters, is it?
I find it sad that deaths like these are being gutted and sold out by media, everyone constantly talks about it. Why not talk about his companion tomorrow? Why shouldn’t we post RIP videos of him? I just don’t get it. To be fair, as you might have understood, I’m not a real fan of the fast and the furious, I’m into other movies, but that is no reason for me to respect this person less. But really, is there anything about the Walker hype I didn’t catch up with? What is your opinion on this? I hope I got my points clear without being rude or anything, please respect that english is not my mother language and although I’m a fluent speaker, I can’t always express my thoughts perfectly. Tell me about your opinion about this whole Paul Walker thing happening at the moment, that would be really interesting!
