Hey everyone, as a bit of #realtalk I’ve been feeling a bit lost lately with how to run Lonely Kids Club. A lot of things have gone wrong for the label in the past few months behind the scenes, and I’m finding I have less and less time to do everything such as send out orders and promote the brand.
When I started working on Lonely Kids Club I was in a really bad place, and in a lot of ways the brand really turned my life around. I’m definitely going to return the favour here so I’m not quitting the brand, or going to let things start going downhill. Instead, I’m flying to New Zealand tomorrow, and driving from Christchurch to Queenstown / wherever and stopping along the way with no real plans or accommodation booked. I guess much like the brand right now i’m going to just get lost and find my way back on track.
While I’m gone I’m going work out how to get things running smoothly again and make sure Lonely Kids Club has another huge year in 2015. I’ve already got some ideas in my head but just need some time and space to pen them down.
Thanks so much to everyone who’s ever bought a T-shirt, sent a nice email, or even just mentioned the brand to a friend in a FB chat conversation. In a lot of ways you’re just as important to the brand as I am.
I know I’ll never have the resources or marketing budget of one of those huge online clothing stores, but to hell with it. LKC has soul. It’s the Nintendo 64 to their Xbox One & Playstation 4. I dunno about you guys, but I’d take Smash Bros 64 over any new release games any day.
Anyway I digress. I’ll see you all on the other side. Have a safe NYE and expect a crazy big 2015 from your friends at Lonely Kids Club.

Hey sorry about last week I just wanted to change things up and try talking for once. Hopefully haven’t made all these blog posts feel awks now cos you’re reading it in my voice and if you are slow down and relax cos I talk way too fast and this must seem overwhelming to you right now. I can’t believe this year is over already. I legitimately don’t think I threw up this year. Yeah I totally didn’t. That must mean I’m becoming an adult. I still deal with situations like shit though. Just the other day I went out to dinner and it was okay – really slow service and they forgot my rice. I needed that rice. Anyway I went up to pay and they did some weird thing with the card reader so it offered me to tip first but I thought it was time to enter my pin code so started typing it but only realised after I hit ‘1’ so clicked enter. So I kind of accidently left them a 1c tip. So she obviously looked up at me as to say who’s this cheap asshole and I then freaked out and winked back at her. I was like “ hey there, that asshole is me ;) ”. If that’s not the definition of creepy as fuck than I don’t know what is. I haven’t gone back either. Still dealing with it well I guess. Hey have an amazing end of year everyone. Fuck this year has gone by fast.

Yeah so I had diarrhea for like the whole of last month and I was like well shit (literally) I better go to do something about this but then my dad and some of my friends told me I was looking slimmer and in my head I attributed it entirely to my newly found pooping situation so I just let it play out. My friend Hugh said my neck and face was looking slimmer and I figured that’s something worth fighting for. But anyway as it happens with life things happened and I started eating prunes and those digestive nut packs (It’s a real thing) and now I’m pooping like a champ again. I’m mega worried I’m going to put the weight back on now though and go back to being ol’ regular pooping chubby Warwick. I’m determined not to let this happen though. I’ve cut out all fun foods and going to the gym like one of those people who don’t really have the personality to talk about anything other than their health. I hate those people. Anyway I don’t even know why I felt the need to share this but I figured you all needed to know. Yeah. sorry. This was a pretty shitty blog post.

I had the strangest night last Thursday. I was sitting with my laptop watching Veronica Mars and had recently gotten angry because I finally got an email but it was from GetUp. I mean I’m all for GetUp but for some reason I was basing my entire self-validation at that point on if I got a personal email sent to me in that space of time or not. Anyway a friend messaged saying come to trivia at the leagues club which I figured I was about 20 years too young for but then I was like fuck it I don’t receive emails anymore maybe this is my life now. So I say I’m going and get there and buzz him to find out he’s half an hour away. Also he needs me to sign the team up. So there I am playing trivia by myself surrounded by tables of old people and one other group of under-30s, and to top it all off the guy running the trivia kept coming to give me tips and smiled and said “it’s okay” when I told him my friends were coming later. He honest to god didn’t believe me. Just to prove this situation was real here’s a photo my friend took when she came to grab a T-shirt.
My friends arrived and despite him giving me all the answers we still managed to lose. Moral of the story TV and pizza in bed always wins.
