Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There was a time which ive talked about endlessly in the past when i acquired mountains of stuff (we were geting 2$ to the pound) with very little focus beyond collecting for the sake of it so there was also a period when my denim acquisitions (and some holidays) were funded entirely by selling off highly collectable shit of yore for 10x what i paid for it.. alas, that profitable seam ran dry years ago. Don't get me wrong, i'm not pleading poverty, we can still afford to live a comfortable lifestyle but in days gone by I would have sacrificed shit to buy denim, nowadays days i prefer to buy less/no stuff and have more life. :)

While i was rummaging through my Mrs's accessories, i found this sweet little coin purse which she bought in London while visiting Sis sometime around the mid 90's

It's just about big enough for a £2 coin...

My Mrs watched it last night and text me the same thing! (I texted Mike and he said "thanks for telling me, that reminds me, they haven't paid me for the interview").

Came up to London today to see her and we watched the interview earlier.

That Boss of he Road patch, mmm..

Ive not seen it but there's a similar program about pottery and one of the school mums from my kids junior school was a pottery consultant on one of the first episodes, i'm not sure if she actually appeared on screen or not.. she was paid £2000 for her efforts

Received an email about a month ago, just haven’t got around to billing them for the 150 pounds, to do the interview during last years lockdown. After the interview-I wondered how the heck they were going to weave this into a sewing B?

haven’t seen the show- suppose I should try and watch it…It was one of those interviews where they stop you, then ask you to say it like this.

You should have brought in some 'old scraps' to be repurposed for the show  ;)

Would have made the whole thing a little more interesting, how did they tie the interview with the show?  I was left with a - this is going to be mediocre at best kind of feeling, after the interview.

They were repurposing old denim shorts into something new, ie a dress or whatever. I only caught the programme a few minutes before your 5 minutes of fame. Mediocre? Tbh most terrestrial tv is shite imo so l don't watch many programmes only films usually, but l got the feeling that it is the same inane programme formula of cheap and cheerful with some z-lister host.  Just about every programme (cooking, homes, moving abroad, fixing stuff, cruising  B) , antiques etc etc.. ) is just like it - unwatchable/irritating. Luckily we have various services to hop between , and in the case of terrestrial tv, the beloved mute button (and subs if necessary) is there so l dont have to listen to ads for Eastenders or The one show.

Hey (lol) my mental health is important to me.

Couldn’t agree with you more, but I bet the level of shite content the US puts out- blows away your shite content…The US puts out the purest shite content known to man.

Just finished reading the entire Superdenim forum, every single thread. My eyes hurt now and I’m thirsty.

Was this a week long project? I looked at the RoyXCone contest thread 2 months ago…Feels like it would take me a week alone to read just that thread.

It’s a toss-up between ‘Bill Wall Leather denim jeans, are they any good?’ and ‘Denim jacket with a hood’. I can’t decide.

20 (TWENTY) degrees here so I've dismembered some gateway denim

Happily Edwin is so vanity sized I can still fit in them.

Dog isn't impressed. I think he doesn't see went he isn't allowed to chew up a pair of jeans and I am?

^ ha yes... me and a few lads were visiting years ago in winter... must have been close to freezing as we were in big coats... however local lads were in Newcastle tops and lasses in shoestring dresses out on the toon

I really like Newcastle - always found really friendly folk and loads of great coastal places in easy reach
