I got into work late this morning and found Johan from ROGUE STATUS on our couch, makin’ moves, hustlin’, and wreckin’ all kinds of shop. Keep your eye on ROGUE in ’07. By this time next year, you’ll reminisce on this post and go “Hmm, that Bobby guy really knew what he was talking about. Ever since Rogue Status blew up, Airwalk retroed the NTS2, and Nick Diamond celebrated his 47th birthday.. man, I should really listen to Bobby from now on, instead of pouring my coffee on the monitor everytime I read one of his cornball blogs.”
Speaking of senseless acts of destruction, have you ever tried getting paid by Dominick Deluca from Brooklyn Projects? It’s about as fun as swallowing glass shards on horseback. The next time I have a bitter enemy, I’m gonna send him down to Dom to discuss money matters. Nevermind, I might go to jail for that.
So for all you brand upstarts out there who are wondering how the selling/buying process goes (attention: all the kids who email me every morning with subject headers like “YO DAWG CHECK OUT MY NEW TSHIRT LINE CALLED “KNIVES AND ROBBERS” AND PUT IT ON YOUR BLOG BECAUSE IT’S THE BEST. OH AND LISTEN TO MY NEW ALBUM. BALLLLLLLIN”), it’s actually pretty simple. After showing the store buyer/manager your linesheet, you deliver your product and either get paid up-front (COD), terms (net-30, 60, etc.), or consignment if you really really hate yourself. Then you get paid. Easy, right?..
These photos were taken over the course of an hour and a half. Just imagine a lot of profanity, thrown objects, rolling eyes, kicking/stomping, delusions of grandeur, profanity, brandished weapons, ’30s style boxing, a mangled cat, and profanity.
Oh Dom, you know we love you.
As long as we get paid. Haha just kidding. Kinda. Not really.
