The Grime opened up their doors at 191 Henry Street on Wednesday night and they threw a party to celebrate. You can find some of our latest shirts including our Grime collaboration shirt at the shop. It felt pretty awesome to see this shop up and running, especially when I saw its very humble beginnings. Believe me, the shop did not look anything like it does now when they first got it. Lots of people put in work and it shows. My good friend George came by with his handy dandy camera and took some video shots throughout the night. I put together a quick edit but you have to actually go to the shop to see it. There's WAY too many people in this video to fully see what the shop is like, it's definitely worth checking out. We may have some pictures up on our Flickr soon too.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
