RICOH GR II x ERIC KIM NECK STRAP MARK II

My Best Purchases of All-Time

I don’t necessarily think that consumerism is bad. The difficulty is this:

Some stuff you buy actually improves your life, and some stuff doesn’t.

Through the last 10 years, here have been my best purchases thus far:

I’ve bought all this with my own money

My favs:

  1. RICOH GR III [$890] and Ricoh GR II [$600]
  2. Lumix g9 [$999], Panasonic-Leica-Lumix 12mm f/1.4 lens (24mm full-frame equivalent) $1299, Rode video microphone with fuzzy wind jammer [$150]
  3. 13” MacBook Pro touchbar, refurbished, maxed-out [Apple Refurbished Online Store] ~$2500
  4. iPad Pro ($799)
  5. In-Ear monitor headphones (Shure makes them, for $99).
  6. Exofficio boxer briefs [$13]. I’ve literally bought around 15 pairs of these over the years and have traveled the world with them.
  7. Merino wool men’s leggings [$60]. I wear these everyday, and if I wanna cover my crotch bulge, I just wear black athletic shorts.
  8. Merino wool socks. ‘Darn tough socks’ on amazon is good.
  9. Kettlebell (70 pounder). Good for working out at home. You just need one. Pavel’s ‘Simple and Sinister‘ kettlebell book was a good read for me, both philosophically and practically. Basically the best workouts with kettlebell is the double-legged swing, the one-armed swing, then the ‘turkish getup’. Aim for around 100 reps of each (10 reps, rest, then do 10 sets).

A new consumerism?

A less material society.

Amazon will continue to conquer and dominate EVEN MORE as time goes on.

But my prediction is this:

As time goes on, we will become less and less material-focused. We will prefer the digital, the metaphysical … the experiential, or empowering/motivational ideas.
