THAT'S WEIRD

I'm suddenly nostalgic for my old slot car set and I can't figure out why.

I must admit, while it isn't the nicest, it does have some dignity to it, unlike most of the ones you post.

I think it's not terrible, but not the greatest either.

I'm forgiving on this one too. I sense no disrespect nor ill intent.

Don't really see something terribly offensive.

not only that, Chris, but I have a curious hankering to buy some retro Adidas gear

Ya'll don't get it.

I saw my old Aurora H.O. scale Lola GT the minute I laid eyes on this one. Old style, you know, just the racing stripes, no ssponsorship decals stuck all over it.

I found a picture of one at this link, MrConey slot cars.

It's like the kid left the freezer door open, the mint-chip ice cream tipped over, thawed and flowed on down...

Well you can't expect better from priests that celebrate "bartender" instead of "facing the east". What's the back look like? lol.

I'm hearing the late Richard Harris: "someone left the cake out in the rain..."

While this is not great, it's not bad, either.

I can't put into words why, but I find this one disturbing.

When it comes to vestments there will always be "better" and "worse" but that will be a subjective aesthetic assessment. On the other hand, many of the garments on this site fall, in my opinion, into the "unacceptable" category. I think this should not be an aesthetic judgement but rather based on violation of more objective criterion (many of which are often articulated here as well).

Personally, I think this a rather poor example of a green chasuble, but I cannot call it a "bad vestment."

looks like something made by adidas.

Cantor Nikolaos said...

It's not an inspriing chasuble, but it does make me wonder if adidas ever toyed the idea with making vestments.

Maybe a priest was also a race car driver and made a chasuble to celebrate his racing. Has to be somewhere in the Deep South!

It needs a big number '8' right in the middle of it.

(and maybe some STP stickers)

This is the most sane vestment in the collection on this blog! I don't know what the problem is. It's not exactly the most beautiful chasuble, but it's not bad. Just inexpensive and probably within some priest's or parish's budget at one time.

It's fine- sometimes a vestment is just a vestment

I still think CJ is onto something. There's liturgical dissonance here. Green is the "life color" as we grow in Christ through the lessons of Common Time. Black, seldom used anymore, was the vestment color of mourning. "Blessed are those who mourn," I guess. We can grow through grief. Is that the theme here?

Really, on a deep green vestment, one normally looks for gold or other lively colors representing the glory to which Christian growth leads.

The little cross reminds me of the Pallium crosses...

She's at it again. In this article in the Pittsburgh Tribune, we see Katherine Jefferts Schori sporting an amazing new vestment complete with flames.
