Day: 1171

Shirt: Lush - Shaving The Pavement US Tour 1996

Color:  Red

Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Heavy

Source: nothing reminds me more of Japan than Lush.  so much so that earlier this week when we were on Monkey island we were driving around and we stopped at a light only to see this tiny car of kids drive by and park their Mini and all i could think about was the 500 (Shake Baby Shake) single cover.  

see cover below, its not exact but you get the same vibe.

so yeah, its all pretty cool here in Japan.  peace.  

Day: 1170

Shirt: Morrissey - We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful

Color:  White

Brand: Hanes

Source: Being in Japan does have its disadvantages.  like sometimes the internet isn’t good and you can’t post.  other times its because you are so busy you don’t have to time to keep a daily blog updated, but i suppose these are all good problems.  

this shirt tho…how fucking nice is it.  it was traded to me along with another gem for a giant box of stuff, but well worth it.  i really do love this shirt.  its silkscreened, you can feel the texture of it it aged so nice and fits perfectly.  thank you Michael!

Day: 1169
Shirt: King Tuff - Black Moon Spell
Color:  Purple
Brand: American Apparel
Source: Today another new favorite of mine comes out. the second King Tuff Record on Sub Pop.  if any of you are not aware of King Tuff by now i highly recommend checking it out.  growing up having an older brother i was subjected to a lot of good music that i might never have heard if it wasn’t for him.  bands like Scorpions, Judas Priest, and Ozzy.  I imagine the guys in King Tuff grew up in a similar situation mostly in part because every song of theirs i hear sounds like guitar riff laden anthems of a previous generation.  so many hooks each album it should be called “coat rack.” now don’t get me wrong just because I’m referencing some classic rock gods dosent mean the music is dated, couldn’t be farther form the truth actually, its more of a new twist of classic rock that is current.  i know thats kind of an oxymoron, but hey, i just work here

Brand: Hanes 100%

Source: spent a lot of time traveling yesterday.  now halfway across the world it seems like.  the one thing that always keeps me comfortable it listening to music.  there are a few bands i like to travel a lot with and just tune out when I’m on a train or a plane and stare out the window.  one of them bands most def the Pixies.  it is a very comforting sound to me and for some reason always makes me think of Japan despite i have to connection with them and the land.  who knows.

Source: As i was in physical Therapy today for my shoulder.  this woman who came to work me through my exercises started making idle chit chat with me and then all of a sudden looked at my shirt and freaked out.  so much so that she decided to stand behind me and then when she walked around put her hand in front of her face to block out the image.  
So i asked her, what was the deal, you don;t like the Mars Volta that much?  
she said who?  
I said Mars Volta…
She replied um i dunno, i just hate spiders.
