Grand Theft Auto V: The Great American Mirror

A few days ago, I reached the end of Grand Theft Auto V for the second time. Like most people re-playing the game on a current-gen console, this time around, I allowed myself more time to enjoy the little things, like random kicking over of “For Sale” signs and searching the map for spaceship parts.

Like it or not, Grand Theft Auto occupies a unique place in modern culture. Rampages and lapdances may be (a super fun) part of that, but that’s not really what the games in the series have been about for a long time now.

The All Saints Cloning Initiative

Good news everyone! All Saints has mastered human cloning. They found the one model they really liked, and just cloned the shit out of her.

I’m kidding. Yes, it’s the same model over and over in the same nondescript parking lot. I’m only mentioning it because it seems odd to ignore it, really. All Saints has always been the kind of brand that does one particular aesthetic exceedingly well.  So, you know, it makes sense that they would want to use one model for all their looks. Consistency is definitely a staple they should keep and you know…clone.
