“Everybody told me that my business was going to fail — not because of who I was giving my product to but because of who I was hiring,” Scott said. “They said that these homeless women will never make more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich — you cannot rely on them for anything. And I know my ladies enjoy proving everybody wrong.”
[…]“We can make a coat in an hour and a half — we’re going to be able to make it faster very soon — and we can stand up in a market and prove that we can do these things and be competitive,” said Scott. “I think we’re going to show a lot of people: you think it’s outdated to do manufacturing in your neighborhood, but I think it’s something that we have to do in the future, where it’s sustainable, where you invest in people, where they’re not interchangeable parts.”
Do you like Godspeed You! Black Emperor?
Their early work was a little apocalyptic for my tastes, but when
Slow Riot For New Zerø Kanada came out in ‘99, I think they really came into their own, eschaterically and thematically. The whole EP has an intense and tenacious sound, and a new sheen of modern romanticism that really gives the songs a big boost. Efrim Menuck’s been compared to Win Butler, but I think Efrim has a much more pragmatic, wise outlook on the world.
In 2000, Godspeed released this: Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is Static, a song so sobering, most people probably don’t listen to the samples. But they should, because it’s not just about the imminent mortality of man as a society and as an individual, but it’s also an important statement about fighting against the industrialized life-cycle of the Western world!
Morrowind OC - Yanniss.
She’s ashlander, fights with spear and she’s generally strong, assertive woman (still have her weak points obviously).
