Nike bought Converse in 2003…but that may have less to do with the price than the fact that people re willing to pay $50 for them, which is still cheaper than a lot of other well-known sneaker brands.
“All sunglasses are hand made in Japan. The quality of ‘Made in Japan’ eye wear is now aligned with the more commonly known ‘Made in Italy’ or ‘Made in France’ eye wear found throughout the world. The materials we use are all of highest quality, made with either the best acetate or metals. Also, all of our lenses are UV 400. Another selling point we have is all the designs this season are made so you can take the lenses out to use the frames as eye glasses (Zero/Maria Cornejo’s designs are none detachable) . This is usually not possible with sunglasses of this quality”
hey No Age – kiss my acetate, you whores.
Totally. Moment of Truth is so fuckin good. I need to put that on tonight for nostalgia’s sake…I think a blunt may have to accompany, as well

My favorite fake (real) name for “()” is “Orange You Glad I Didn’t Dung-punch Your Step-mom’s Neighbor’s Original Dog Owner’s Nephew’s Calculus Teacher For Not Liking My Knock-knock Joke?” Or, “Dung-punch” for short.
If i had $50k to throw around, I’d buy this…
…and then flip it for a profit…
…and then spend the profit on Christopher Stopa demos…
“And everything has been shit since Paul (Wall) Banks lost his shit in recent years.”
I’ve been hot and cold with Interpol but overall, never in love with them…I think the main reason is that so many of Paul’s vocal melodies are way too similar. The guy is seemingly locked into singing major 3rds in too many phrases…now some of you may start crying “don’t give me that music theory math geek shit blah blah” but the point is that it’s boring and pretty unoriginal from one song to the next. Funny that D-tilla cites Bloc Party (and I would agree that Silent Alarm was one of the best albums of that year, if not those five years) because Kele started to show in the following albums that he also had a difficiency for coming up with new melodies. Anybody that argues with me on this is simply wrong – it’s a measurable thing. What you can disagree with me is if you personally thought that it became boring or not…but ther’es no doubt that it’s a lot of regurgitated material.
Paul Bank’s vocal parts from one song to the other is like the musical equivalent of making 100 different cupcakes with rhubarb being a main ingredient…it’s cool at first but you soon grow tired of tasting rhubarb.
I’m pretty sure those plastic trees are fake, bud.

I didn’t see you before I said the same thing. Cheers
Spot on. And no “Handshake Drugs” or “Shot in the Arm”?
“I like R.Kelly and how crazy he is…”
Ok, shut up.
I, for one, am really surprised that this dude had a girlfriend because I would’ve bet he was gay. That’s totally not anything negative towards gay people (I have plenty of gay people in my life that I love), I just would’ve thought. Like, how I bet Ryan Gosling is a big tipper or how I bet Sara Silverman farts into plastic bags and saves them. Intuition.
It has to take more than one “stalker” giving you downvotes to put you in to the “hidden due to low comment rating” category, right? I’m not asking retorically, btw…I’m genuinely curious…how many downvotes does it take? I thought this site only lets a person vote once on a comment…
The Rolling Stone lips are actually based off of an image of the Hindu goddess Kali, goddess of everlasting energy.
quop – forget haircuts and soup, you’re still confused. a film is just like a song. it happens once, but it’s captured in a medium and then distributed. it can cost millions of dollars and people work very hard on it but you think that simply because it exists in a digital medium that can be copied, it now qualifies and valueless and able to be stolen without recourse. you’d have to be very stupid to think this makes sense.
a painting is made once. it’s a unique, physical property. that is so different from a sing that was performed and recorded once, mastered and finalized once, but just so happens to be able to exist on something that is able to be copied.
years back before the digital age, if you made copied of a song or a film, it degraded in quality…it didnt sound or look as good and the more you did it, the more it degraded. so eventually, it would blow if there was only one master of the song and the rest was a copy of a copy of a copy…get it so far? so then comes the digital age and WOW, we can make coopies of this same art form but now, the quality stays the same.
the value of this artform has not changed simply because it can now be delivered on as different technology…the costs going into replicating them has (cassettes cost a lot to manufacture, CDs less, vinyl not so much) but there is still a demand from the artist for you to pay for this art.
the bottom line is most of the artists, if not all of them, are not giving away their music…they are telling you you should pay. try rationalizing to each one of them why you are supporting them by stealing the shit they asked you to pay for.
