california select?

i’ll be the first to admit that i’m turning on my “painfully behind the times” lamp by even bringing this up, but today i happened to re-stumble upon california select and it kind of got me thinking…

actually, it kind of got me feeling a little anxious, possibly even annoyed…

american apparel doing the vintage ebay thing? and as it turns out, the blog thing as well.

it’s quite possible that i’ve gotten fussy about this due to the poor grammar i discovered in said blog. proof-reading is something nice people do, to make reading words nicer for other nice people.

maybe american apparel doesn’t care about niceness?

i think what really got me going though, is the fact that i really don’t like it when previously established monstrosities try to get in on indie/hip/witty and/or clever things that us common folk come up with out of necessity, because these above-mentioned juggernauts of fabulous tee-shirt production have already monopoly-ed all the other aspects of the industry.

(for the record, i put scarlett johansson’s singing career and mcdonald’s referring to themselves as “mickey d’s” in their print advertisingin the same catagory.)

i am aware of the fact that i am being a complete jackass to many many people at this moment in time.

this said, i have to admit, they have some pretty neat stuff on their site:

also, acquiring more tri-blend deep-v’s is high on my to-do list for this week, so i should probably stop talking while i’m still somewhat ahead…
