Day: 1098

Shirt: Danzig - the Lost Tapes / Blackest Of The Black Tour 2008

Color:  Black

Brand: Gilden Ultra Cotton

Source:  If the above art looks extra good and awesome to you its because it is.  It is a comic book artist Simon Bisley’s work.  to my knowledge mostly a comic book artist, at least thats where i know him from, but damn can he make Danzig look fucking rugged.  look at this sketch before i pulled from his site that mustve been used someplace else. or maybe never got used at all?!

Be rad if he was crushing someone in this drawing.  maybe that guy form that band that punched him out on that video.  :)  Danzig. i don’t even know where to put the energy into this man.  there is part of me that will always love the “Idea” of Danzig but i feel like until he changes in some sort his days of making amazing music are over.  I low that sounds sad, Who knows this.  maybe he reads this and is like FUCK that guy wTF does he know I’m going to fucking smash him, but first I’m going to write the best album ever and prove him wrong.  

so in the mean time i can only stomach putting up Danzig I for your listening pleasure.

Day: 945Shirt: Misfits - Crimson SkullColor:  BlackBrand: Fruit Of the LoomSource:  me as a younger man with this shirt and my HIC sweat pants.  i was full on doing the Steve Caballero.  every had my crossbones airs down legit too.  it i didn’t have this gross curly/wavy hair you i bet you millions i would have had the spiky do with the bleached tips in all.  I will give Cab credit.  dude always looked good as far as sloppy skateboards god, his game looked tight.  but then again he ha slots of free clothing to help that.  
This misfits shirt form the Session catalog didn’t hurt either.  i can genuinely say my love for the Misfits started with Steve Caballero.  So thanks for that Cab! billions of years later i just bought a ticket to see the Faction for the first time in my life and i can honestly say i am pretty stoked to go.  who cares if they suck, i mean I’m sure they will be ok, but i am more looking forward to the congregation of people there that are just like me…Excited.  edited to be around other fools who have this same nostalgic emptiness in their lives that they can now finally check of their list.  Faction…BOOM.  Check.  next up Odd Man Out?

Shirt: Danzig - Il Demonio Nera / Blackest Of the Black Tour 2005

Color: Black

Brand: [torn out]

Source: If there is one thing in this world you can count on..its not counting on people.  

Danzig would be highest on my list of things never to count on.  right up there with counting on Morrissey to play Kimmel.  

Danzig on this “Blackest of Black” tour brought back Doyle to play with him and some sort of Misfits type reunion, but not really.  i went to this show out of curiosity..got there bout a shirt then when in to see the show and for some reason it just seemed to fall flat.  maybe it was the too big of venue, or the crowd that attends the show.  i know for certain part of it was a horrible sounding soundsystem/soundguy it hit me like a ton a bricks..

I honestly dont know what i am complaining about here to be honest the show wasn’t that bad, i think i just had higher expectations for it than perhaps Danzig did at the time.  this era seemed to be a lower point for him in some ways.  records were not selling tours not doing so good, and frankly his music was not the caliber that it can be.  it really wasn’t until round 2010 where he kicked it back into gear and started making really good songs again.

Source:  Since I have been doing the same thing all weekend, and pretty much wore the same shirt each day in two different colors AND since i forgot to post my pic up yesterday you are getting two posts that are identical.  not identical shirts though, just identical in memories and actions.    This shirt above i had when i was a kid i loved it.  I wore the shit out of it..  things were different back then too we didn’t have the luxury of the internet.  we mail ordered shit  the old school way

Sessions was my shit.  look at those goods.  11.95 for shirts?  i would kill my dog to get that Samhain shirt now.  ok i wouldn’t kill her but i would be stoked to have it.  Misfits, Dead Kennedys.  they had it all.  I did a lot of mail ordering here when i was a youth.  maybe a hip bag or two, a watch, or a sweet new board form this up and coming sport call snowboarding.  why would you not want to do it.  look at that fucked up double grab that guy is doing on WTF? I bet if found me in 1989 there was a good chance i had one of these shirts on WITH the hip pack, the WATCH and most definitely the Airwalks.  I was pretty exclusive to them.  ahh the good ol days.  
You think this stuff was licensed?  who knows.
So sorry about the late posts i was shooting everyone of these shirts to put them all in a book.  it takes a long time and big thanks to @Bunnypoision and sugar for helping.  maybe someday it will come out and i can sell that on here..,

Day #361 Danzig - Blackacidevil North American Tour 1997
Color: Black
Brand: Wild Oats
Source:  How stoked are you if your last name just happens to be Danzig.  If i ever have a kid I’m going to name him Tony Danzig seems like a solid idea right?  really secure him a solid future….of getting beat up.  
My relationship with Danzig is very Love / Hate.  he can be such a weirdo jerk at times but then again he was in the Misfits and Samhain.  so you know he isn’t all bad.  there are even some real solid Danzig albums in the earlier years..and shit recently even too.  I think my problem with the later records is he lost a lot of production value and nothing ever sounded as heavy and full as say Danzig I or Lucifuge.  but that really isn’t my big issue with Danzig.  its crappy tantrum performances like the one in Austin that really bum me out.  It sucks cause the only ones he is really bumming out is the fans and not the promoters who just think, oh well ill never book him again.  
I know he is a tough guy and all but know that when you do shit like that you just end up alienating your fans.  but here i am writing about him wearing his shirt.  thus the love / hate part.  He is Danzig.  The shirts are so good.  i just love saying Danzig!  its like when you say SLAYER!!  there is no comparison.  He is like a boyfriend that keeps beating his woman but she keeps coming back cause A: he is hot and B: he will beat her ass if he leaves her.  Perhaps there needs to be a home for the battered victims of Danzig

Shirt: Danzig - Legacy Tour

Color: Black

Brand: Hanes

Source:  As some of you know or might have read the news Fun Fun Fun Fest happened this weekend.  Great festival aside from a lot of wind and dust, but you can’t control the elements and mother nature, now can you.  but can you control the singer of “Mother”?

Much like every kid who grew up listening to Misfits and Samhain i was so into these bands it was no joke.  I went to Chicago Riot Fest this year where they played, but they played up against another brand i wanted to see more (ALL), so i didnt get to catch them.  so disappointed that i missed it it was half my reason for going to Fun Fun Fun this year.  I mean he was only playing 4 shows right? would i ever get to see Misfits / Samhain performed live again? 

I bought this shirt in the afternoon, cause i didn’t  want it to sell out, wanted to make sure i had one of these goes to remember my day with for ever.  only to see Danzig huf and puff all day about cold weather and go on an hour late.  that hour late cut into all the misfits set…blach blah blah , read the entire story here.  long story short, now the shirt just bums me out.  so I’m selling it today on ebay. in case any of you are interested, you can buy a piece of minor thread history as the first shirt sold on eBay out of pure disappointment.

BUY IT HERE
