I was roasted by The Basement for writing an article about how great it is

Everyone is so, so not nice

The Basement: a secretive Facebook group dedicated to the discussion of streetwear. Why is it special? Why does it matter? Because, for me, it’s one of the last pure, friendly, uncynical, non-acidulous places left on the internet. It is an anti-Cuntry Living. It’s people discussing their trainers, their music and their relationships in a laidback way. I wouldn’t hesitate to describe the entire operation as “cute.” It’s weirdly heartwarming and incredibly addictive.

So I decided to write about The Basement, and how nice everyone is there.

The article was, unsurprisingly, shared on the basement. It went down really well:
