Trendsetter's Bench Lesson 1 - The Bowler Hat

Well nothing is new under the sun, but myself and peeps will be influential in getting people to rock these English Bowler Hats for 08/09.

Back in the late 1800's Coke Hat (as it named after the first customer to purchase it) was original prototype of the modern day industrial yellow hard hats used by posh cunts whom would go rabbit hunting and get there top hats knocked off by low hanging tree twigs. 
Some dickhead on wikipedia has came up with the conculsion that these are not very popular anymore because you cant wear them in you car.....hmmmm. 

Well, Tomorrow is 'The Carnival' where you are surrounded by millions of people, walk in big circles, smell jerk chicken and enjoy it. Oh and when I say 'The Carnival' I mean Notting Hill no dis-retro-spect to all those in Leeds but London's Annual Caribbean party has the most similarities to the Brazilian one. I actually happen like most things which are Brazilian, except for nuts. 

Furthermore, I really do think people will think I am absolute nut (but also wanna jock my swag, no homo (i think)) tomorrow because ill be wearing a fresh Bowler with my spankers OBEY T-Shirt. Thats right I am trying to stand out like a sore thumb because as my favorite saying goes; "The one thing we have in common is we are all individuals".

I have noticed that the coolest type of fashion sense is the one which makes you stand out from everyone else and actually makes you different which isnt easy to do unless you 'wear your own garmz' like these two.

Which reminds me, I need to shout out FB who told me about a custom T-Shirt shop which is a minute away from my house (if i drive like a maniac). So I might Hit Em Up Tupac Styleeee.


Hold tight, Yera who inspired me to  finally cop one.

Skamboard P

Now I have been saying for a minute that Pharrell carries the influential qualities to be in the musical catergory as a modern-day Prince. Even though he "bites" Prince's music style in the sneakiest ways. I guess like Mike Skinner's new masterpiece Everything Is Borrowed.
I sure wished someone could have Borrowed (or is it Lent) me £70 on Tuesday because Prince's Mini-me was in town to perform at the Birmingham Academy with N*E*R*D (aka The Revolution). Hold up wait, before you try and guess where this is going your wrong coz TICKETS for the show were £30, I dont think they were sold out but Pharrell is obviously doing his bit to get on the other side of the credit crunch.
Anyway the £70 would have came in handy for a T-Shirt which I had to buy in order to meet Pharrell at his in-store signing at Flannels, Bull Ring...........Dont Think So!!!!

I couldnt believe it, the worst part is that I twisted my ankle about two weeks ago 'Jumping Drunk to Daft Punk' at Fabric, London with Yera and Sean while the Scratch Pervs was on. So I am going into Birmingham City Centre on crutches, looking like a Tee-pee minus the sheep skin only to be told that even if I wanted to buy T-Shirt they are sold out anyway, So I couldnt meet the dude anyway (Im not even gonna say no homo, Pharrell is definatley one of the modern day Leaders of The New School). But to make up for the wack 'Scenario' I would have took that £70 to The Candy Store and just copped a couple of those 'The Hundreds' Tees. My Boy Ian has that FIRE!!

So I hobbled home and put on that 'Seeing Sounds' to make up for not meeting Pharrell and I found my new favourite song called 'Lazer Gun' which I wish Lupe drop a lil 16 on. I need to learn how remix on my Logic Express 7 program, Loooong Ting.
