There's Woolite Dark? I'd never heard of it. I don't iron anything, but I'm a champ with doing laundry.

I thought Gilbert's video was great. It felt better than most of the other recent parts. I like the aesthetic Quasi has going with their art and videos. They've captured this odd 1990s Midwestern cable access Guided By Voices mood.

They just had to make the car look good for the camera so maybe they attached it on the bootleg side?

Good for anybody who gets hooked up with a big shoe company, especially Nora, but honestly all of that stuff is of no interest to me. Nothing about the big shoe brands has impressed me ever. Gonna go yell at a cloud right now.

Literally everybody here just wears Vans. Maybe a rare soul might be wearing New Balance. Also people ride Pizza boards around here. I might live in a vortex. Wait, I did see a college student with a Metal board.

I've been running the Patriot model from the relaunched Fallen for the last couple years. It's a well padded cupsole with a square toe, which is what I like. Yes, it sometimes feels dated to be wearing Fallen in 2022. At the same time, their shoes are more comfortable than nearly anything I've worn from Lakai or Sole Tech in recent years. Also I'm at the point where if something works I keep buying the same thing until they stop making it. Fallen is better without Jamie Thomas. Billy Marks ain't let me down yet.

The entire music industry is looking to be in dire straits. Nobody cares, but everybody loves music. People don't buy physical products, streaming services are not paying artists, record plants are clogged with pointless reissues, venues take a cut of merch sales, COVID is killing touring, etc. It's not good.
