Brand new ripped blue jeans!

Published by at 3:40 am under I Don't Get It,Why?!?

ripped destroyed new designer jeans

Guess what? This post is going to suck it hard because it’s late and I’m lazy. You see, I actually had to prepare a bunch of stuff tonight for a workshop I was asked to teach about blogging. I know, RIGHT? I am so fucking awesome! I’m going to make the world’s worst/best Power Point presentation for this thing, I can’t wait. I need to track down a corduroy jacket with elbow patches ASAP!

So anyway… let’s talk a little bit about ripped up designer jeans. They are ridiculous. Can I just say that and go to bed?

Why do people want to walk around like they were just attacked by fucking piranhas? And why do they want to pay handsomely for that privilege? When did it become cool to look homeless? Sorry bro, it doesn’t make you look edgy, it just makes you look like you were dragged behind a tractor. Ahhhhh, let me hold onto that image for a while.

The people who wear this nonsense seriously need to get their shit together and think about doing something important with their lives, like teaching blogging workshops. As a professor of blogging, I have superior intelligence and can tell you, without question, that these inconsequential simpletons know not of their own deplorable demeanor. The French have a saying, “Votre pantalon est chié” which means, “Your pants are shit.” At least that’s what Babel Fish says.

    Blogging workshop… What, did the bartending school close down?

    congratulations Professor on your masters in blogology…or is it blogonomics?

    Jeff – Yeah I know. I’m basically going to do my best to discourage people from blogging.

    It’s “Votre pantalon est à chié” which translates to “Your pants are to be shat” 🙂

    Buying new ripped pants and wearing old ripped pants are completely different. My favorite pair of jeans are ripped but they didn’t start out that way. I refuse to toss them into the rubbish and no matter what anybody will say about them. Comfort trumps any trend.

    I am cheap.

    Like, unbelievably cheap.

    I refuse to pay anymore that $10-15 for jeans.

    As such, I have come to purchase them all second hand. Several of them are ripped from the get go, but I will not buy them if they are ripped too severely.

    Like the way they are when you pay $100+ for them.

    The only thin I spend decent money on would be my suits for work but I wear suits much more often than jeans.

    Earning your ripped clothing is fine, but buying ripped clothes is just silly.

    8bithero- I am not even sure if Salvation Army or Goodwill will take ripped clothing or much less sell it. They will take that god awful 1980’s Bill Cosby sweater but ripped clothing is usually a no-no. The consignment stores around my area have become increasingly picky about what they take since everyone and their uncle is trying to sell their wardrobe for money. Unfortunately that means the days of finding worn in clothing on the cheap all but gone.

    All joking aside, surely a ‘blog workshop’ is as misguided as a ‘school of rock’. I mean, the whole thing behind blogging (like rocking) is that it’s a do-it-yourself craft in which you succeed or not by your own wits.

    Then again, they might let you in the teacher’s lounge to have a smoke…

  11. You Just Made My List!on 12 Oct 2010 at 10:08 am

    Jeff – Yes and no. There are plenty of issues to discuss, like the technical side of things and actually trying to make money from your blog. I’m approaching it more from a professional side I guess.

    Listy – how do I sign up for this training? Is there a live web stream I can sign into?? Seeing you, with pipe in hand, your special “smart” glasses on and the patched coat would be worth almost any price!

    Sara – I like “Professor of Blogology”. And then Listy can become Professor Emeritus and not do jack shit after that!

    As for new ripped jeans, yes, the idea is ridiculous but I have to admit I own/buy them. But nothing like the picture above! That guy looks like he doubles as a fucking scarecrow! But what is MUCH WORSE that you are missing here is those fucking go awful bedazzled men’s jeans with the stupid stitching of skulls and angels on the back pockets. Those enrage me!! Here is the best pic I could find of what I am referring to:

    i can go back to buying my shitty ripped up jeans from the Gap. looks like your blog isn’t a waste of time after all.

  14. SanFranon 12 Oct 2010 at 11:31 am

    rachel, you know when I read last night that the Gap was going back to the old logo, I immediately wondered if it was Listy’s doing?

    On to the ripped clothing – I was asked by a vegan, card-carrying PETA member fashionista… at a BBQ no less… who was wearing, no joke, snake skin boots and a suede skirt, “where I got my ‘distressed’ jeans”…

    “Distressed?” I said…

    Vegan: “Yes, around your feet, they did a nice job making them look distressed…”

    my reply: “Oh, no – I’ve had these since college – they are legitimately distressed from years of scuffing around in birkenstocks…”

    she just blinked a lot and looked at me, as the notion of wearing clothing bought oh, 17 years ago from Banana Republic (back when they made nice quality stuff that lasts a long time), was completely foreign to her.

    Then I asked how many snakes died making her boots…

    “Oh, that’s different”

    i think you wanted to say, “votre pantalons son merde”

  16. Erinon 12 Oct 2010 at 1:59 pm

    San Fran- Please tell my that did not really happen! I may vomit on the floor of my office from the hyprocriscy.

  17. kenon 12 Oct 2010 at 3:39 pm

    I’m waiting for the gloating post about how you singlehandedly brought the Gap to their knees with this logo re-design.

  18. kenon 12 Oct 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Or maybe they were just using you to further their original agenda, which was to not change the logo at all but to generate media coverage about it.

  19. You Just Made My List!on 12 Oct 2010 at 5:50 pm

    Oh, there’s no doubt in my mind that I was the reason they are going back to the old logo. All the executives at the Gap are huge fans of mine.

    Hey Listy – don’t know if you’re looking for a new affiliate, but airbnb.com has a great affiliate program – you get 40% from each referral. It’s a great company and run by some v. nice people. I use them as my secondary means of booking rooms for my B&B and actually just became an affiliate (click through on my own web site, where most of my business comes from).

    Sorry to go all off-topic but thought you might want to take a look. Julie

  21. You Just Made My List!on 12 Oct 2010 at 6:56 pm

    Juliex3 – Thanks, I’ll check it out.

  22. SanFranon 13 Oct 2010 at 1:02 am


    that’s how it went down.

    I’m sorry about the vomit.

  23. The Sandcrackeron 14 Oct 2010 at 2:32 pm

    I just want to say I love Hitchhiker refs….and right on getting a workshop gig on this. You are most productive lazy blogger ever!

  24. Peteon 18 Oct 2010 at 8:41 am

    Those pointy Chachi shoes suck, too. What are they designed for? Poking someone’s eye out?

  25. You Just Made My List!on 18 Oct 2010 at 8:50 am

    Pete – Yeah, I HATE flat and pointy Euro shoes!
