    on Jul 16, 2012
    2011 was a big year for huarache makers citizens. I spent most of it up to my eyeballs in little foot-shaped pieces of rubber. That year saw the birth of more new sandal companies than I think we'll ever see. Had I known it was coming, I would have b...

    on Jul 11, 2012
    I have a few serious man crushes citizens. The first is with Jason Robillard. Especially when he wears these shorts. I hope the feeling is mutual or I will be more crushed than when they discontinued Crystal Pepsi. I friggen loved that shit.  Fr...

    It hasn't been all work and no play for me lately citizens.  The great thing about being psuedo unemployed is that I can do what I want, when I want.  By the way, I like the phrase "psuedo-unemployed" better than saying "self-employed".&nbs...
