I don’t know if I’ve made mention of this yet, but in my attempts at becoming a major competitor for the Rapha line of clothing, collaboed bikes, and genital moisturizing cremes, I have partnered with Earth, Wind & Rider to bring to you the Smokey and The Bandit replica wool jersey;
I’m happy to say that I’m on track to meet my minimum order, assuming that I can wrangle the remaining orders in the next 60 days. What this means to you, dear reader, is though the garment is on the pricy side, starting now, it’s only like, two dollars and sixty six cents a day, and even I can afford that.
Please make sure that when ordering, you pay strict attention to the sizing chart, as there will be no extras of this made for exchanges;
My man Bill from EW&R (who by the way, also now has a blog) recently did me a super solid and set me up with one of their items that I had coveted from the first time I saw it at Interbike a few years ago, pictured here, on a man whose pants appear to be on backwards.
Although my body doesn’t currently reside in Oakland, my heart never left.
Secondly, in regard to product I currently have available, I’m flying though my new order of cycling caps that were made for me by Chuey Brand, and emblazoned with a graphic conceived by me and ultimately executed by the incredibly talented, not to mention very patient Brado;
For those of you who, like me are not fluent in German, the scroll along the bottom which reads ‘Zeit Die Berliner Ballen Zu Machen’ in fact does not translate to ‘Zap The Munchkin Who Lives In Berlin’, but rather ‘Time To Make The Donuts’. This has long been my motto when expressing that it’s time to get down to business, whatever that business might be.
These days it generally involves anything with pants.
Lastly (as far as random product goes) I just received my order of almost black on black Downzig patches;
As I stated in the description in the market, these are suitable for application on any random item of clothing you choose, with the exception of Budweiser sweaters purchased from Urban Outfitters.
They have been specially designed to spontaneously combust on contact with such an abomination.
In much other news, via Colin I came across the following video that if you are like me (see: an individual whose taste in music apparently sucks) you will want to watch;
Just when I think I might not be able to love that band any more, I do.
In news of the recent Cyclocross Worlds athletic pursuit, of course we all are aware Stybar and Vos emerged victorious, but were you aware that John Waters put his film making and skinny cigarette smoking temporarily on the back burner to heroically snag seventh place in the name of all the rest of us mortals?;
Finally, one for the ‘stop the presses’ file, Monday night my lovely bride came home bearing not only a box of Drumstick ice cream treats, but this clipping that she thoughtfully retrieved from a local paper;
Like I’ve been telling you people, Budweiser is the good stuff, but I suppose until I am outselling Rapha, you won’t take my word for it.
I was thinking about going into the haberdashery line myself and trying to compete against Rapha, but I realized how hard it would be to put out 250 pages of text in a thoroughly overwrought catalog, the text of which sounds as if it was written by SNL’s Orgasm Guy. So I decided that if my clothing line ever launches, the clothing will match Rapha’s, but I’m going to call the company Really Good Shit, and will hire Windell Middlebrooks to help me write the ad copy.
News of the weird here recently yielded the info that “Jesus Christ Superstar Orff” was arrested for stealing copper.
El Mariachi rocks it. Support the band, order one on real stuff. My riding partner is one half bean, one half potato(e), and and this album made her wiggle. Cool.
Awesome, with that news clipping, I now have something to ask my mom about the next time I call her…
The Bronx+your Jersey=wheeeee-hard as fuck
I work for Rapha, but Stevil you have my hard-earned money for one of these. I have no idea how to read the sizing chart, but count me in for a small. And, if you put a black TransAm in rear pocket when you ship, then you’d be that much cooler.
If you should decide to make those Bandit jerseys again, let me know.
General Motors already has a hit out on me, so it’s not likely.
