Guess what everyone. hot topic sucks. Maybe i will lose lj friends saying this , but it is true. Sure there is nothing wrong with shopping there,big brother need hes income from somewhere, but getting your entire wardrobe and wearing it out st8 out of the bag, my dear "punks" and "goths" were is you creativity, isn't that what we thrive on? and now... you are allowing a coperate chain which feeds on a the fact that we are diffrent, and indivuals, dressing us all alike, like a platonic army of candy fucked adolecents. they are making money off us. Sure a braclet, cool shoes. whatever. not to mention they are overpriced. my best friend is going to a protest to shut down the chains. i told him ::: "well i guess youer going to the protest naked." I say the answer lies in suporting your little momma pappa thrift stores and non retail shops. Shit, make your own clothes. But if you shop at hot topic like rikki lake at a buffet, err maybe you should all shut up when you complain about SOCIETY. and how much it blows.
