Suspicion Breeds Confidence


I used to work at an online clothing store, Digital Gravel, back when they were just getting it together ~2001(?). Nowadays, you can pretty much find any and all dope clothing lines selling their gear through them.

Last I was in LA, where they're now based, I linked up with the founder Nima Nabavi (probably the funniest guy I know) to catch up on old times and score some free gear. He was telling me about this quasi-TV show he wanted to start, and showed me a couple episodes he had done. The short and simple premise of it is getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the labels he stocks at the store. One such label is Obey. I'm sure you're familiar w/ the figurehead of the line, Shepard Fairey (aka the guy who did the omnipresent Obama poster).

Here's the episode (filmed just after the Obama print was designed/launched):



And the reason why I'm posting it relates to a blog post I read at Adbusters.org, entitled Politics For Sale. Well, that, and the fact that Santogold did a show that was thrown in conjunction with MoveOn.org and Mr. Fairey (where Moby was talking about the Hipster Olympics, Tim Robbins got drunk and danced with young girls, Heather Graham just kinda walked back-and-forth w/ those deer->headlights eyes, and I got name-drops).


Can any of his future work, which has historically been politically charged and critical of the 'status quo', criticize an administration that he helped put in place vis-a-vis his art? Or, as the Adbusters blog poses, has he always been, or is he now forced to be, a sell-out?

*EDIT: He's also on PBS tonight being interviewed by Charlie Rose.

So much has been written about dude, that I don't need to post this up; but the blog's been slacking and its somewhat relevant to one of my favorite movies ever, Brazil.

I want to get an iPhone, and wonder how do people carry it? I keep my current phone in my jeans pocket (not the back pocket), but it is a lot smaller than the iPhone. I heard the iPhone is kinda fragile because it has a glass screen, and some people have cracked it before. Do you keep your iPhone in your jeans pocket? If not, where?

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

A spicy trend in the about based subject universe right promptly is the forming of crucial alliances. Strategic alliances between home based business owners are roughly not between competing home based business but between businesses that offer compare favourably with products and services. The strategic alliances can be either short label or hunger interval, depending on the prerequisite and require for it to continue.
