Has anyone seen this new Bernie meme? There should be an 8-hour shelf life on viral memes
What a week. From inauguration memes to a Memorial Day repress, this week has been something. I keep trying to track down more info on the repress but I haven’t been able to find anything, does anyone have any information, or have I completely made that up? Nonetheless, if it isn’t being repressed it should.
We’re still looking for contributors, send us an email, DM, smoke signal. Please just get ahold of us.

Evergreen - Fables of Mercury bc Shameless self-promotion but I don’t care, not even a little. I was fortunate enough to be present for some of the writing process but due to the pandemic and work, I wasn’t able to be present for the recording. Thank you to Lucas for playing my parts and making me sound way better than I actually am.

Introducing - Trish
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Trish is an avid vintage head and is Margiela Tabi royalty. We reached out to see what their 5 favorite vintage shirts were in their collection.
Celtic Frost: Year Unknown on a Tennessee River Tag (Double Stitch)
This was my first real vintage t-shirt and to be honest, when I first got it I didn't know jack shit about vintage. I was just like "damn, this shirt kinda pricey" but I hadn't seen any cool Celtic Frost shirts that weren't boots so I said w/e (it was only like $60). It's one of my favorite t-shirts because Morbid Tales is still one of my favorite albums of all time.
Jamiroquai: 1999 on a Silver Tab Made In U.S.A. Tag (Double Stitch)
Jamiroquai is one of my favorite bands of all time. This t-shirt is a wrinkled mess even after washing/steaming a hundred times as it was vacuumed sealed with a promo CD of Canned Heat. My fiancé found this for me on e-Bay and it's a unique one since the Buffalo Man is 3M. I thought that was so cool even though I hate the song Canned Heat. I wish Jay Kay could sing at my wedding.
Pearl Jam: Year Unknown on a Fruit Of The Loom Made In U.S.A. Tag (Single Stitch)
This t-shirt was gifted to me by my best friend Pat. We were in Colorado for my birthday and he said "Happy Birthday!" when I walked past his room the morning of my birthday and I was like "Thanks!" and he was like "No, Happy Birthday!" and handed me this with my favorite local San Antonio candy that I love. I will cherish that trip and this t-shirt forever. This is one of two PJ shirts that I own but the other doesn't have sentimental value like this one. Thanks, Pat!!
System Of A Down: 2001 on an All Sport Tag (Double Stitch)
SOAD was the first "aggressive" music I'd ever heard. It was past midnight when the music video came on TV in my family's house in Mexico. My mom walked in and told me that it was the devil's music and made me turn it off. When she left the room I turned it back on but lowered the volume and stood in front of the TV in awe. Like damn this shit sounds tight!! It led me to be obsessed with SOAD pretty much the rest of my life. Toxicity is my favorite album because it has a good mix of riffs and lyrics about crazy conspiracies/ political chaos. My fiancé snagged this from his job where about 60% of my t-shirts are from. I love @lofiatx!
The Chemical Brothers: 1992 Ringer on a JSR Tag
I had been keeping an eye out for this ringer for MONTHS before our friend posted it on his vintage page (@neglectedgoods). It's from 1996 and thrashed like a mother fucker but fits like a dream. I've had it for a year and worn it maybe twice? I don't want to mess it up more so it might become a hang-up shirt. I'll probably wear it again though.
