The Hundreds Magazine‘s latest issue is NOW AVAILABLE in our flagship stores, select authorized stockists, and right HERE in our Online Shop.
The Internet Issue covers our Spring and Summer 2013 campaigns, as well as sneak-peeks into what’s to come from us over the first half of the year, as well as profiles on personalities and brands we’re partnering with. Vol. 4 Issue 2 features Travis Millard, CLOT, Kid Sister, Levy Tran, and other extensions of The Hundreds family.
Keep print alive, support quality content! The Hundreds Magazine is a true passion project for us – it takes a lot for us to make this dream a reality twice a year but we do it because we believe in it and the fulfillment that comes with publishing each book. Plus, you get free stickers, how can you beat that?
I’m onset with Stevie Ryan in Burbank. This entire building, in fact, is dedicated to the television personality’s VH1 show, “Stevie TV.”
As the crew prepares for the second season, they gather here every day and work on sketch ideas to pitch to the network. Perhaps that’s why they’re called “pitches.”
Matt points out the pitches that have been greenlighted by the VH1 execs, the ones that are in limbo, and the ideas that have crashed and burned:
but they’re all funny to me.
To give you a better idea, here’s the entire first season on the whiteboard, the sketches that were filmed, and the crew who worked on them.
Stevie takes me on a tour of the costume department. The skit comedy show revolves around a parade of parodied characters and celebrity personalities by Stevie, so the wardrobe has to be pretty convincing.
Lunchtime is where the fit hits the shan. The show’s veteran writers bounce pitches off each other for the next few hours, tuning, whittling, and refining raw jokes into elaborate skits, which then devolve into sexually perverse bathroom humor, but then they take it back a few notches from there and end up with comedy gold.
And the entire time, Stevie rules with a plastic fork.
In the midst of the summer, our friend Jessica came to visit us at The Hundreds. You’re probably well aware of her now; notwithstanding our cover for the latest issue of The Hundreds Magazine, she’s also a constant on Instagram’s Popular Page and gracing thousands of Tumblr feeds a day. The 26-year-old Australian is an employee and student of Streetwear, but she is most notably recognized for her obvious face tattoos. Since our magazine released, the questions have been pouring in about her and it seems like many are as transfixed and curious about Jessica as we were. Jessica isn’t a model, she’s our friend, and during the short week she spent in Los Angeles, I was the constant observer. From suburban malls to the coast of Malibu, I followed her and lived her life and existence, taking on the perspective of an eager and intelligent young person in America for the first time. I documented everything. Here are just some excerpts from the experience. (To see and read more about Jessica Clark, read The Hundreds magazine online or get the print version HERE)
The most profound time together was under the gun of NORM at Will Rise Tattoo on Fairfax. Jessica gets “Conscious” drilled into her jawline, a proud badge of awareness and conscious living. As the needle broke her skin and permanently altered Jessica’s face once again, tears fell from her eyes. I asked her if it hurt. Was she crying of pain? ”No,” she softly replied, “I’m elated.”
(Oh yeah, and then there are these. Those stories will have to wait for another post):
Don’t forget. The Hundreds Magazine‘s newest issue (our ART/DESIGN/PHOTOGRAPHY edition) can now be bought in our Online SHOP, this time coming with a free coloring book and custom markers by The Hundreds:
Introducing the fifth installment of The Hundreds Magazine featuring Jessica Clark. This is our first ART / DESIGN / PHOTOGRAPHY issue, and covers creative personalities we admire like Ryan de la Hoz, Alysha Nett, and John Robinson, as well as a look at upcoming collaborations by The Hundreds, and a summary of our Fall and Winter 2011 lines.
And, for the first time ever, we are not only publishing The Hundreds Magazine online right here on our website, but we are also debuting it here before the print issue hits our accounts in the next couple weeks.
