Levi’s Curve ID Blogging Event
Last Tuesday, I attended the Levi’s Curve ID blogging event at Levi’s San Francisco. The Levi’s Curve ID jean is Levi’s answer to the modern woman’s problem of fitting into their jeans. I, being one of three guys at the event, was completely oblivious that women had this problem. You Nguyen, SVP of Women’s Merchandising & Design, presented an eye-opening demonstration of the Curve ID jeans. In short, most jeans makers don’t take into account that women with similar waist sizes might have different hip sizes. A woman with a 27 waist might have petite hips, while another woman with the same waist size can have larger hips. There’s usually only one jean size for these different sized women. You pointed out that women, for the most part, try to painfully fit into the jeans instead of picking jeans that fit them perfectly.
F* that Bowl and Double Down
In a land of bacon wrapped lard logs, quadruple thick burgers, and super sized orange mocha frappacinos, the masses seem to have spoken. The Colonel listened. He says, “I see you enjoying that bowl-o-fried self pity. Our evil bowl of goo is the most popular item on the menu. Shall we double down and go for broke?” ABOLUTELY! Leave it to KFC.
What’s better than piling your food in a bowl rather than eating it on a plate like a normal self respecting person? Hmmm how about we take a chicken sandwich, put bacon and cheese on it, then lose the bun and use the chicken like two slices of white bread. Someone please call Patton Oswalt, we are ever closer to inventing that lunch gun he so adamantly has requested.
War of the Worlds Part Doh
As I was reading the New York Times Online this afternoon, I came across this headline.
Panic in Georgia After a Mock Newscast.
I must say, it got my attention. At first I thought, yup, some backwoods retard got a hold of a War of the Worlds tape and they bought it hook line and sinker. Then I read further and realized I was in fact the slow kid.
The mock news cast was aired on television in Georgia, as in the eastern European country neighboring Russia. Insert Homer Simpson voice here. DOH! The broadcast was certainly done in the spirit of the Orson Welles classic. Fake news anchors reported that Russia was invading and fighting had broken out in the streets of Tbilisi.

One Year Anniversary Party @ The Hundreds SF | 3.20.09
Continuing their “Fifth” series of celebrations to mark the brand’s fifth birthday, The Hundreds threw a one year anniversary party for their San Francisco store on Post St. We got to chat a little bit with Ben and Tony (who were, as usual, super super cool) but alas, I missed a chance to meet Bobby Hundreds. Oh well.
More pictures of the party after the jump, my favorite of which is right above these paragraphs. Nothing says “Duuuuuude I’m having fuuuuuuun” like flashing the rocker and looking like your grill got hit by a bus.
“I can make you a celebrity overnight.”
I woke up this morning to this text from my brother: “You made front page gold on the TH blog.”
HUZZAH. None of you know how awesome this is for me. I’m a longtime follower/reader/fan of TH and I’m stoked to see myself on their homepage, even if it’s only for probably all of an entire day.
But before I start basking in my .15 nanoseconds of e-fame and hire a Venezuelan security guard/dry cleaner to carry my water bottle for me, I have to first thank Ben (for seriously being a homie, and absolutely cool, even though I’ve only talked to him twice) and Bobby and Tony and everyone in The Hundreds‘ crew who put together Friday’s excellent hipsterfest beer-a-thon party for THSF’s first year anniversary.
Check out ynoT?’s blog for more pics, and stay tuned for our coverage tomorrow. Incidentally, that girl in the Twisted Sister shirt is officially MY NEW GIRLFRIEND. Maybe. If I can find her on Craigslist’s Missed Connections.
Less than minor celebrities.
Spring Collection Preview @ Saks SF | 3.19.09
Last night at the Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s store, we were invited to a Spring Collection preview party by Saks and Urban Daddy, hosted by none other than Eric Jennings, Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Fashion Director. It was a homecoming of sorts, since Mr. Jennings is originally from Walnut Creek here in the Bay Area.
Stay tuned for our post next Monday, where we’ll have our exclusive interview (!!!) with Mr. Jennings. But for right now, click after the jump for more pictures of the men’s spring preview.
Fast backward in time
