Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Greetings fellas. Posted one picture a while back. Would love to hear some feedback on our LIGHTEN UP project. We're sending these postcards out to bloggers, supporters, shops and the like. If you want one, go ahead and e-mail LIGHTENUP67@GMAIL.COM with your mailing address and we'll get one out to you. Clothing will soon follow, of course. We have logo tees and SOS hats being distributed on the low if any of you are interested. It won't be on the low for much longer. [Image] If you dig the direction, give us a follow on Twitter and Instagram at @LIGHTENUP67.

Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Greetings fellas. Used to lurk these parts a few years back. These forums are like a hub for who's got now and next. Glad to see they're still thriving. After months and months of months of nonsense, a buddy and I are putting the finishing touches on our debut line for our 'brand' called Lighten Up. We don't really know what we're doing, but the process is half the fun right? [URL] Marcus

Today Was A Good Day Appreciation Thread

This song is definitely worthy of its own thread; and a history book, movie, and museum exhibit.

College Majors?

I'm pursuing a double major through our Scholar's program - English & Business Administration. I'm hoping to write though. But really, I should be majoring in getting that motherfucking paper.

Boat shoes with jeans

If you're gonna wear socks, they have to be all sorts of funky to jive with boat shoes. Perhaps it's the juxtaposition of a classic silhouette and then a vibrant/textured sock. Otherwise, no socks.

Post all Drake related material here thanks!

Drake doing a mil first week is good for hip hop, and good for a music industry that's on the decline. I'll support him and hope it inspires him to be better rather than become complacent.

The Role of "Blogging" In Society

Blogs have become an inescapable fixture of the internet, rivaling porn and Nigerian e-mail scams. More than likely you know one or two or several people with blogs that capture daily bits and pieces of their lives. Celebrities have them. Politicians use them to seem hip. And regular people, just like you and I, are fascinated enough to maintain our own online diaries and bookmark others'. The explosion of blogging seemed to coincide with social networking sites such as Xanga, Friendster, and Myspace; and have continued to grow in popularity with the emergence of Facebook and Twitter. Our "streetwear" culture that we ALL belong too (Whether you like to acknowledge it or not) is reliant on blogging to spread messages to consumers everywhere. Over the course of the last year, in preparation for the launch of my own lifestyle project, I have examined what makes a blog successful, and whether or not there's better alternatives than "blogging." Because a blog is just a place for the OPINIONS of that respective person, it seems hard to imagine that they will decrease in popularity anytime soon. My question is for everyone: Is blogging a trend that will soon die out, along with all-over prints and neon sneakers? Or is it something more than that. Have blogs become such an integral aspect of our daily lives that they will never disappear? Thoughts?

The official Lauryn Hill Appreciation thread

Lauryn Hill is easily my favorite artist of all time. Every single song you can hear the emotion behind it. Music needs someone like her. Music needs her. I couldn't believe when I heard that she came out at Raggamuffins in New Zealand! That's absurd. I'm hoping she has it in her to return to the game and drop one more gem.

Sade

American Vintage on Melrose has the Diamond Life record for 10 bucks in their bin for those interested. Thought of forty ways to steal it before my conscience got the best of me. Sade is just a beautiful vocalist. She can make the most meaningless phrase seem so powerful. Anyone else not gonna be surprised if she surprises the crowd at Coachella.

Tom's

[Quote] Hippie scum shoes that aim to make a difference and help impoverished people rather than keep them in a vicious life-cycle of sweatshop work, low wages, and poor health conditions. Feel how you want about the the look of the shoes, but Blake is a philanthropic and business genius. You cant beat a pair of shoes (+1 donation) for 10-15 bucks at their sample sales.

Favorite Books.

Big Palahniuk fan? You'll like Haunted...it's a modern-day Canterbury Tales, meets a horey horror film. It may stain your mind for the rest of enternity though. I also reccommend Rant, my favorite of his after Choke. Right now I'm reading The Right Brain Experience, a book of Manga, and Coyote Blue (Christopher Moore has become one of my favorite fun-time reads). I just finished What the Buddha Says, which was interesting. If you guys like reading, look up the Classics app for the iPhone. One of my favorites.
