A few weeks ago, The FADER asked if I would write up a blog for them, doing the things I do here, but with more of an emphasis on fashion. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know much of anything about fashion and/or style, but, as I mentioned at The FADER earlier today, I’ll damn well do my best. You can read my entire first post here:
My first hike was a catastrophe. I was on a vacation with my family in Arizona, and after a morning of eggs, bacon and swimming, my father, my brother and I all went on what would be the first of many family hikes up Phoenix’s Camelback Mountain. Camelback is a prominent landmark in the area, impossible to miss unless you’re above 60 and have started to lose your sight and/or mind. The hike up the mountain is difficult and steep, enough so that rails have been put in several places along the trail to keep the college visor wearing hikers hydrated by Mountain Dew from falling to their premature deaths.
Thanks again to everyone who reads this rag. I can’t tell you how much it means when someone writes and says they enjoy coming around these parts. And an obvious thanks to the staff at FADER (especially Chioma) for a) knowing what Cold Splinters is and b) writing the best music magazine around. Can’t wait to see what JTK has in store for you.
