Hey guys, I know the blog has been getting a little bit weird and extravagant as of late, so here’s a relatively plain (but not too plain), relatively expensive (but not too expensive) tee shirt for you to look at. It’s called the Gumjo Tee, from French street/workwear label Homecore. It costs 108 USD and it’s made from 100 percent cotton. It’s manufactured in Portugal. It’s nice (but not too nice). And there is such a thing as “too nice”, for tee shirts, for lattes, for people. If all you owned were “too nice” tee shirts, you’d never be able to drink red wine or eat barbecue and what kind of life would that be? Perish the thought. Man, I so want to go on an insane tangent about metalcore and deathcore in the mid-aughts -- which would start with some casual references to popular bands of the era, then culminate in a crescendo of increasingly impenetrable allusions to song lyrics, album titles, and artist trivia -- but I’m not going to do that, because I’m committed to this post remaining free from weirdness and extravagance. I’m sick of doing my hair; all the mousses, pomades, and salt sprays. I miss being in middle school, when all you had to do was put some CVS hair gel in to slick it back and I went off on a random rant, didn’t I? Damn. Fuck life without red wine or barbecue; what about life without tangents, rants, or tangential rants? Am I right? Come on. Okay, I’m going to be the bigger man and change the subject back to the subject: this tee shirt is cool. You’ll look great in it. Trust me. I have a I give it four out of a possible [insert trending emojis]. Dude, blogs are so passé. I should start an underground zine and wait, no, that was almost a tangent. Just stop. See? Not weird at all -RB
