I’ve reached the end of Monologue 1.0.
I started this blog a few years ago because I missed having a sanctuary for my thoughts, somewhere I could think out loud without having to share it with a bunch of half-interested critics on social media painting my words with their own inflated opinions, and without having to compete with selfies and memes in a stream of digital shit. In that sense, Monologue has been a wonderful escape and outlet for me. I’ve rarely promoted it. Most people still don’t know that I have an active blog, and if they did, nobody reads blogs anymore. This room has felt like my little secret for a very long time. Our little secret. I came here to write to nobody in particular, so if you caught any of it, thanks for giving me your time. The funny thing is the design and layout were never finished. Monologue still doesn’t work in some regions of the world. After a while, I stopped trying to fix it and just let it be. It was much better as this raw and imperfect thing.
I am starting a Substack on Tuesday, January 17, 2023. Please subscribe to the new MONOLOGUE on bobbyhundreds.substack.com and if you feel up for it, please opt for the paid version. A year’s subscription is like the price of one T-shirt. This is my final entry here on The Hundreds’ website, and maybe the last time I blog on thehundreds.com (wow). Thank you for reading the last few years as I’ve treaded through the death of streetwear, the pandemic, social warfare, and NFTs. I put a lot of work out there through The Hundreds, but I’ve always felt that my Monologue readers are the ones who see me clearly and vice versa.
Peace, Love, Empathy,
