I’m contractually obligated to comment on any music video filmed on the Sarah Lawrence campus and the recent debut of Gabe Day-Lewis’ “Green Auras" so richly deserves dissection.
Vice already did a good job of it (best quote: “doing “stoop shit,” which amounts to chain-smoking weed with his fellow liberal arts majors while complaining about how hard his life is, likely because everyone’s always making jokes about drinking his milkshake.”), but I’ll add the following:
- Love that he sourced a black-clad and suspiciously multi-racial “crew” to appear in the video, but the red-haired girl in owl glasses and a Fair Isle by way of Urban Outfitters cardigan nervously glancing at the camera was a serious oversight AND the most likely actual SLC student.
- Gabe, your fitted hat worn high on the head just can’t be a trendy “’Ain’t Laurent Without Yves" cap making a comment on the recent re-branding of Yves Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. But maybe you’ve been doing "stoop shit" like hanging out with fashion bloggers? Not even gonna touch the leather Africa pendant you also chose as an accessory.
- We all love Sarah Lawrence, but do not under any circumstances give a shout out to “SLC” in your lyrics as an example of living the hard life. Especially when posing in front of those upper-crusty old money Tudor dorms.
- At the end, you are wheeling away hands-free on your fixed gear bike, but heading DOWN Bates hill. I’m guessing your car is parked at the post office, cause no one gets back up that thing on two wheels, especially after smoking as much weed as you just did.
In conclusion: Thanks to Jason P. for adding this bright moment of hilarity to an otherwise gloomy Tuesday!
Impulsive murderers are substantially less intelligent than premeditative murderers.
U.S. intelligence agents behave leas rationally than average college-educated adults.
Beach-going Frenchmen are more likely to approach women with butterfly tattoos on their lower backs.
Unattractive people are treated more cruelly by their co-workers. “Frankly,” said the lead author of the study, “it’s an ugly finding.”

Today is the second time a man felt the need to tell me “that’s a lot of car for a little girl like you,” i.e. reason number 497049893 I bought this mofo.
Close second is the ability to set off car alarms with my short headers and bone rattling 43-year-old V-8, perhaps making that parking attendant reconsider his choice of words.
Ok seriously - you just can’t name your new line of sunglasses “Anorexia.” With a tripe X in the middle.
Via Harper’s Bazaar:
We’ll let it slide that Paris got their hands on this chic collaboration first, when the Thierry Lasry x Kelly Wearstler “Anorexxxy” sunglasses launched at Colette at the end of September—only because they’re hitting Bergdorf’s now.
French sunglass guru Thierry Lasry and interior and clothing designer Kelly Wearstler joined forces on the “Anorexxxy” line of shades, 4 styles that leverage the unique aesthetics of both designers. In Wearstler’s corner there are hints of her maximalist-meets-glam approach in the marble mixed with black and gold detailing and Thierry’s unique ’80s influence lives in the very cool shape. In other words, they’re meeting our fall/winter sunnies checklist on every front.”
