Acting Childish


I totally get jealous of babies. They just act like a regular person tripping and people deem it cute. They can pretty much do anything and it’s “adorable”. There was a baby at dinner the other night (not by itself – someone brought it.) and it started screaming like an intolerable little shit and everyone was going batshit crazy over how cute they thought she was. I kind of wish I was a baby. If I was ever bored in a situation I could just start screaming shit and everyone would be all like “OMG SO CUTE!”. I could proceed to throw food at everyone and bail when it suited me to go drool on the floor or whatever it is babies do. For the record, I have nothing against small children, I just don’t like them around me. I’d rather just give them something sharp and tell them to go play outside. I’m going to a fucking great parent one day.

NOTE: Last night around 3AM while doing “stuff” I made new prices for the shirts. To celebrate / as a thank you to blog readers any shirts bought in the next 7 days will arrive with an additional care package of chillwave mix CD’s, extended letters, vintage sweaters and other odd-things I have laying around the house.

Train Typin’


I’ve decided today I’ll be one of those arrogant looking rich people who take their laptops on trains with them and sit there typing really fast looking all business-like. This is going well for me. I wonder if everyone around me thinks I’m some amazing entrepreneur. You know how much I like looking smart around people. This is even better then taking out smart looking books on public transport. Alright. Except now it’s awkward because someone just sat down next to me. Oh shit they’re totally reading me narrating. I wish he’d stop. Yes weird guy sitting next to me. I mean you.

Corporal Jeans


I plan on starting a new clothing store. I’m going to call it Corporal Jeans. It will open up everywhere like Starbucks and mass market an alternate image, so everyone can look cool and different in the same clothes. When summer comes around all it’ll have in the windows for the whole season is tacky oversized graphic singlets and shorts that look like they’re from Target but with an $80 price tag. Most of them will just be faded white with thin blue stripes. It will be mandatory for floor staff to rail MDMA hourly, and be overwhelmingly excited about anyone that enters the store. They will make the staff at Boost look comatose by comparison. They will also all have to act incredibly smug about being in the fashion industry when in reality they just work in retail. Also all the televisions in the store will play repeated footage (in vintage colouring) of “youths” posing in hip clothes lazily protesting in different settings but make no reference to what anyone is actually opposing (No, they really do that. It’s weird).

Monopoly In The Workplace


I have a comical resume. It was actually my sister’s resume, and I just kept her “strong points” (which do NOT apply to me at all) and layout and changed the jobs with new made up ones. I said I worked at Incu for 3 years. I should really tell them about it at some point. Anyway the resume does score me a lot of interviews. I rarely got caught out for lying.. One time I DID get caught out, however, was at a surf shop in Mosman. Not that I like surfing.. Or Mosman. I rocked up since money is always a problem and during the interview the guy conducting it said “Oh hey, you worked at Incu for 9 months when Chance worked there.” then, almost as if it was planned this guy “Chance” popped up out of nowhere, with a curious look on his face and said “I don’t remember you, which is odd since I worked with you for 9 months.” The interviewer then pressed this and said “So, do you know chance?” and I figured this had already turned to shit and replied “No, but I know community chest.” . He didn’t get the joke, and I didn’t get the job.

Facebook Birthdays


I totally used to judge people’s popularity based on how many people wished them happy birthday on Facebook. But from a logical perspective, if only 10 people wished them a birthday they couldn’t have too many friends. That, and this was way back when RSVP’s on Facebook events still meant shit. There was this guy in my grade who had a birthday on the same day as me and every year I’d count that I got more “happy birthday’s” on Facebook than he did and feel all special about it. I always won.

This was a super short blog post so here are some Label Updates:

– As some of you may know, the label has gotten a lot of press lately. We made the front cover of Sydney’s Mx newspaper and picked up a 2 page feature in the magazine Vertigo.  The brand was also showcased by Jess Loves Fred in a feature and outfit post. If that wasn’t enough, the kids at Teehunter.com wrote an extensive article about the T-shirts.

– Also a few tumblr people have written lovely words about the label / blog . Thanks so much for that.

– A new artist I scouted out at a Zine Fair has been working tirelessly with myself on the new range for awhile now, and we should be able to move on to printing soon. The new range will be ready in time for summer.

– I have also been working steadily on a jewellery range with a very talented designer over the past 4 months. I got my hands on some of the necklace prototypes the other day and they are looking spectacular. They should also be ready for summer.
