that's N.E.E.T!

For those of us on the periphery of the alternative/indie world, discovering gems like N.E.E.T. Magazine often involves longish road trips to and from the Cape. Why longish trips? Well, better to chat up your indie-aware friends on the latest places to browse, shop and share! Why the Cape? Well, that's another story entirely...

N.E.E.T. Magazine is filled with all sorts of interesting and funky (occasionally bizarre) clothing, jewelry, home goods and just about anything else the editor feels like picking out. Flip through the online magazine to find something that peaks your interest!

Happy browsing!!!


p.s. Hilariously enough NEET is also a government classification, a term first used in the UK that has now spread to other countries (so says Wikipedia.)

NEET = "Not currently engaged in Employment, Education or Training"

In the UK, the classification comprises people aged between 16 and 18 who do not participate in society and who are beyond the scope of labor welfare. In Japan, the classification comprises people aged between 15 and 34 who are unemployed, unmarried, not enrolled in school or engaged in housework, and not seeking work or the technical training needed for work. The ‘NEET group’ is not a uniform set of individuals but consists of those who will be NEET for a short time while essentially testing out a variety of opportunities, and those who have major/multiple issues and are at long term risk of remaining disengaged. in other words, graduate students?
