Fucking A....

Ever feel like evil is the way to go?

I feel like that all the time, that's why Venom is the shit.

Oh yeah, and that pic is also a hint at a future LäWhy? product.

You know, since I'm a geek like that.

SizeUp kid!

I need to get into the habit of updating this with actual tidbits of info, as well as rep the homies who need all the shine they can get. My boy Kyle has been working on his line, which is now available at select Active Rideshops as well as Subterrain in Valencia, CA. I'm rocking the Bo Knows This tee as we speak, and it is illy, especially if you're up on your ATCQ/hip-hop knowledge. If not, step your game up, and Size Up homie!

No H0m0

Aaaah, I surprisingly actually did some classwork before I decided to log onto this infernal thing. Semi-productivity is the shit!

Anyhoo, I got to thinking about how having flashy/nice trinkets or "accessories" is grounds to call a homie GAY. Shouldn't that only be based on the fact of whether he likes to "Ride the chocolate man-bus" or not? I'd put a certain comrade of mine on blast right now *cough* Paolo *cough*, but I'll save it for another day.

Denim rants make classtime fly by

Ever notice how gaudy a lot of the stuff in the general fashion market has gotten lately?
I know I shouldn't be one to criticize, doing forward-thinking graphics, on T-shirts of all things, but c'mon, they are the perfect canvas.
Denim, on the other hand, has gotten more and more ridiculous in the last several months, what more the last couple of years. First the whole raw denim craze, which I personally have nothing against. Stiffies are always cool, having stiff pants just makes for better boner and other groin-embarassment concealment. Then there's the whole "selvedge/selvage/etc." nonsense. Pushing price points by explaining to potential customers that selvedge is superior and making it seem all fancy & desirable is ludicrous. Riiiiight. And lastly, but certainly not least, is the whole creating-brand-identity-via the back pockets. The forefathers got it right with simple arcuates and signature stitching. Nowadays though, the chumpetition go to ridiculously ugly extremes to set themselves apart, with such touches as painting gigantic and unappealing gulls (damn Evisu) down the full rear length of the pants, or the ever-popular "Look at the gay 7-colored dragon curled up all cute on my ass pocket" stitching, that if anything detracts from the craftsmanship that went into constructing the rest of the denim package.

Give me a break. Have some sense of style, utilize the whole "less is more" adage on some of your stuff. You don't need to come off as trying THAT hard.

And to those of you who may be quick to say that I am contradicting myself by saying what I have about subtlety, shirts have always been known to express personality and style, without going to extreme lengths. This is so because shirts are able to carry graphic content, whereas something like pants and shoes rely on other means such as fit and/or color blocking solely to distinguish the wearer's wants and needs.
Now if you'll please excuse me, I've stalled on classwork (again) for much too long. A bientot.

The boredom that is school...

Sitting here @ DeVry, wasting away behind a goddamn computer screen. Shhhhheeeeiiiitttt. I've got a million design ideas and concepts, yet the fact that my wallet holds barely enough to print the first real run of "Stolen Identity" tees restrains those ideas for now. Anybody got leads on decent paying part-time jobs in the Valley/Woodland Hills area? I'm damn near desperate, and if it works around my school schedule, I'm totally down.

I know a lot of you have yet to know who I am, or what LäWhy? is, & what we do, but rest assured, all will be revealed in due time.
