Stay Classy - Take Two!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 at 12:39 PM
Summer is officially over and were starting to bring on some new designs for the Winter line. At the moment we are releasing a Limited Edition Halloween shirt to hold you guys off until the actual release of the winter stuff. We know how anxious everyone is getting but rest assured, we came with our guns loaded this time around so the wait will be worth it. Anyhow, we've been working very closely with some legit artists in the industry and I came up with the idea to release a limited edition of our previous popular Stay Classy shirt. The Stay Classy shirt was a best seller the first time around and is starting to prove itself and remain in that position within the entire MONSTERMASH!™ line. Already selling close to 10 pre sales since this morning, Im not positive that this shirt is going to last very long so make sure you get your hands on it ASAP! This is a LIMITED EDITION tee, only 72 made. Printed on 100% cotton black American Apparel tee with specialty inks including a glow in the dark pigment ink for the green and a monochrome magenta for the pink. All those who purchase a pre sale from now until October 26th will also receive FREE admission to our Halloween Costume party this year, so get on that!

Stay Slimey San Diego!

Keep it gangsta ya'll! aha Just got back the first rough sketch from Jon Chase, the artist we chose to do the Limited Halloween Edition Stay Classy shirt for us. The sketch is exactly what I envisioned in my mind and its just too good, im so stoked. In the next few days its going to be operated on and the lines will become more refined and we'll be adding in some colors, shading and etc. This is going to be a pretty limited version with only 150 pieces made. Initially I wanted only 72 of these bad boys done but these are going to be in such high demand, I had to throw a few more in there. Of course this shirt will come back as a regular edition but those wont be glow in the dark like these Halloween ones. The difference between the halloween edition and regular edition Stay Classy shirts are that the Halloween ones will be printed with glow in the dark ink and have a special neck tag, whereas the regular ones will just have green ink rather then glow in the dark, and also have our regular neck tag and regular packaging - making the regular shirts cheaper in price. Of course, the whole point is to own something limited and this is the chance to do so because we will never again make these glow in the dark after this time. Also, the only place you will be able to purchase the limited edition shirt is at our Halloween Party this year. More details regarding this shirt soon. Were still in the development stages.

Today was indeed very productive. Went to get my "post surgery checkup" and everything looked good. After that, grabbed some lunch and made it back home in time to get picked up by Isaac, bass player for Thy Kingdom Come. Ive been working pretty closely with Isaac on all the new merch for his band. He decided I would be the perfect merch-guy since I have a lot of merchandising knowledge. We went down to our screen printer and dropped off a bunch of shirts and discussed color ways, pan tones, image placement and etc for all the new stuff. I took it upon myself to be prepared and make a couple of mock up sheets before we went to the printers.

I have to say, its pretty impressive. I know TKC has a lot of talent and a lot of room for growth and I just cant wait to see these guys get bigger and take the cake. They're pretty devoted and definitely hard workers as well. We all cant wait to see what these shirts look like when they are done! MONSTERMASH!™ is doing a collaboration "booty-short" design with TKC as well so the girls dont feel left out! Along with tees, TKC is printing up tank tops as well as girl shirts, trying to give some variety to their merchandise. Anyways, their next show is October 3rd at SOMA so make sure you come out and bring some extra money! I will be selling TKC gear as well as some of the last MONSTERMASH!™ shirts from the summer line. This will probably be the last time you are able to get your hands on em so make sure you come out to SOMA and say whatsup to me at the Thy Kingdom Come merchstand.

Why does everyone want to know my Emergency Room Story.

About 6 days ago I noticed that I had a bump on my lower back. Not knowing what it was, I brushed it off my shoulder and just decided to forget about it, thinking that it would go away on its own. Little did I know, that bump would continue to grow over the course of the next few days and eventually, become so painful that I had to take myself to the Emergency Room. What started as something the size of a mosquito bite, grew into something the size of a quarter - it was a cyst (also known as an abscess). Apparently these things are common and happen to the best of us, therefore Im not ashamed to share my story or what others might consider gross or disgusting and too much information. Reader beware, it is in fact gross, disgusting AND too much information. Soooo, if you don't want to hear about it, visit another site. aha Ok, so once I was seen by a doctor I was taken in and given a shot to numb my lower back/my ass. What the doctor had to do was make an incision into the cyst and drain all the puss out. So there I was with my ass in the air, puss and blood dripping out for the whole world to see. After the puss was drained out, the doctor had to put some packing in it and close it up. Im pretty sure my ass was on display for a good 20 minutes. Anyway, after I was bandaged and closed up, the doctor told me to come back in 2 days to get my incision repacked, as if he didn't see my ass enough as it was. So tomorrow I have to go back in to repeat the process of being publicly humiliated. The good side of this whole ordeal is that I was prescribed some way cool drugs. Vicodin and antibiotics are my new best friend and have definitely made up for my pain and embarrassment. Ive managed to be drugged up most of the day today so im doing quite well. I have been pretty cautious as to how I have been treating my wound and Im actually standing at my desk as we speak - just so that I don't sit on my ass. So yeah, maybe tomorrow when I go in and get it my wound repacked ill take a sweet picture? aha Im only kidding.

Lately ive been listening to a whole bunch of electronic and dance music to get inspired for the Halloween party we are throwing. So many artists have been popping out of nowhere and getting my attention - I didnt know there were so many good groups out that that catered this "genre" of music. The Bloody Beetroots in particular are awesome. I love almost everyone of their songs that I went and downloaded a couple of their albums and EP's. Anyway, the work for the halloween party is underway as we speak. Were trying to figure out a really solid song list of music that people will want to hear at the party. At one point we are going to ask all our friends on myspace and all of our other sites what songs they think we should play. The DJ will be there pumping everyone up, its going to be pretty epic. Check this video out by The Bloody Beetroots. These guys get down!

I've been taking that last month easy and sort of been keeping to myself, taking time to reflect. During that time I've been blessed with more and more good news. The halloween party that we are throwing is all setup. We just need to finish up some last minute stuff and by the time Halloween rolls around, we will be good to go. The flyer for that particular event is being made hopefully sometime next week so stay tuned for all the info regarding the party. On another note, I've also decided to go back to college and finish up school. It was my decision to get my shizz straight so I'm definitely excited for what my future holds as far as my education. I started school about 3 weeks ago so pardon me for not posting a blog in the last month. School really knows hows to kick my butt! But regardless, school and Monstermash have been the only two things on my mind. As time goes by theres just so much stuff that I learn about life and so many possibilities I learn of for my clothing line. I know theres so much potential for Monstermash to grow and I see in everyday things how easy it can be for me to just keep going down the right track and into a positive location. I know for a fact that a few years from now Monstermash is going to grow into just that, a MONSTER! Right now im working with an artist by the name of Jon Chase who was the previous branding manager over at Famous Stars and Straps. He has a very impressive portfolio and he has worked with so many big names in the industry. Im just really excited that he is going to be working with us on the new Limited Edition "Stay Classy" shirt. I don't want to give away too much information about that particular project but I will let you know that when we say LIMITED, we mean it. Only 72 pieces are going to be made and you will only be available to purchase them online or at the Halloween party that we are throwing. The halloween party is also going to double as the release of this particular shirt so you definitely want to make sure that you are going to be there. There will also be onsite merchandise sales so make sure you bring some money to this party if you want to get your hands on the shirt! Once this shirt is gone, its GONE. On that note, I am going to leave you guys with the Summer 2009 internet clip that we made for Monstermash. I made it myself so I hope you enjoy it! Until next time, Stay Classy!
