In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

Larry Rivers-“French Money II”

‘Sup nerds? Did you have nice days off for the Pagan holiday known as the winter solstice?

I did, though they were just like any other day but with more people around me wearing dumb sweaters.

I guess it’s all in the name of the Jared Leto Jesus though, which is my personal favorite anyway;

To each their own, however. It just gave me an excuse to not work for a couple of days.

One bit of effort did get flushed down the cosmic pipe however, and that is I finally got my hands on the run of Hessian Obsession backpatches, which look a great deal like this one;

Armed with the artwork of Haryo Awonggo, I had a few samples made which were more square but wouldn’t work properly with a denim vest, so I went back to the drawing board with my vendor and we finally got this one banged out which I think look pretty sweet.

If you’d like one for your own dumb battle vest, I have a cache of them right here.

For folks who might be interested in one of the more square versions (for your shop jacket, coveralls, or cape), though the few I had on hand sold out promptly, I have a batch of those being made currently, and will be in the shop soon;

And speaking of the Hessian Obsession graphic, the shirt order is taking much longer than expected;

I can’t apologize enough, but I have the labels printed, have them organized by size, and I am more than ready to pack and ship them the second I get the order in my hands.

Remember the saga of the Bandit wool jersey I did a number of years ago?;

Those stupid things took TEN MONTHS.

A fully actualized human being could have been made in less time than it took us to get those made, but it eventually happened, thanks in no small part to the patience of the customers.

That said and in conclusion, I didn’t abscond with people’s money to live a life of luxury in a hole in Baja.

As always, I thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.

Now, as I’ve done 107 times previous to today, It’s my distinct pleasure to present not only the 108th episode of Revolting, but the very first episode of 2024;

After skipping last week, How exciting is that?

Finally, I would like to direct your attention to the music pick that Robot presented to us in the very episode that just mentioned.

Oxes ‘The Fourth Wall’;

I haven’t concluded one of these posts with mention of one of Robot’s picks before, but Oxes’ effort is good enough that I feel compelled, so here we are.

And there you have it. A feast for the king’s ear and at least the other eye.

Spread this like it's sick

    I probably shoulda said something sooner but as a Vanagon/Westie owner the new shirt/patch is right up my alley. If your’e interested in widening the sales net a bit try contacting a guy named Abel Longoria( @ houstonphtog) through instgram. He runs a small social media app called VanAlert that caters specifically to Vanagon peeps. I bet they would love this shirt. Abel’s a good dude ta boot.

    Cheers and no worries abt the delay. Good things are worth waiting for:)

    I think I need to point out that Robot’s excellent music pick contains a foo fighters cover.

      I was unaware, but I think you just did.

    I remember missing out on that Bandit jersey. I did not miss out on the Swobo wool LS jersey you did a few six years or so back.
