Fam, if you’re one of those globetrotting types, then you should cop a Travel Bag from Butts and Shoulders. The company is called Butts and Shoulders because butts and shoulders are apparently the best bits of the hide for leather crafting, but I can’t vouch for the veracity of that statement, because I’m not a fucking tanner and I’m too lazy to do a bunch of research right now. Never mind; I guilted myself into a quick Google and it turns out the butt is the “thickest and strongest part of the hide, and considered the best cut for firmer items such as belts” while the shoulder is “a softer area of the hide, often used for making bags”. So there you go. The More You Know. If you’re interested in a little extra credit, check out this bitchin’ video about how they make their bitchin’ boots and this other bitchin’ video about how they make their bitchin’ sneakers. Does anyone even use the term “bitchin” anymore? I feel like we ditched “bitchin” back in the 90s, somewhere around the time that Creed’s “Higher” came out. Remember when Scott Stapp showed up completely hammered on Casino Cinema and embarrassed himself even worse than his awful music did? I know I’m usually pretty positive about everything on this blog, due to its title and general ethos, but I really don’t care for Creed or post-grunge in general. While we’re on the topic of things I don’t care for, I heard “Bawitdaba” by Kid Rock today and I would like to hereby nominate that song for the Worst Song of All Time Award. Furthermore, I would like to nominate Kid Rock for the coveted Douchiest Douche of the 90s Award. Spoiler alert: he loses that one to Slobodan Milošević. Sad, I know, but also totally true. Sometimes you have to have a few things that are bad to balance out all the +Things That Are Good™. Sorry -RB
