Well everyone the time has come for We Love You So to take a much needed rest. When we started this project last year we had no idea how much fun it would be and how much support we would receive from so many places around the world, but like anything this site must also end.
This coming Tuesday, June 15, WLYS is going to be going to sleep for a while. With any luck we will be back, in some form or another, soon enough. Meanwhile, to celebrate the final week we’ll be revisiting some over our favorite articles from our time here and also announcing one FINAL giveaway for all the fans out there.
Chrissie Miller’s NYC-based clothing line Sophomore, has spent the past few years making an impact pairing classic American styles with beautifully-lensed marketing campaigns. Her new lookbook is no exception. Based on the 1994 boardwalk youth documentary Wildwood NJ Miller’s short film, directed by Cass Bird, is who’s-who-of-young-NYC take on the original Jersey Shore cult classic. We would have posted the whole thing here but much like the original some of the language is a bit NSFW.
We have been working on raising money and awareness our close-friend, Kenny Brime who has been diagnosed Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia.
We’ve raised approximately $5000 thus far just from pure donations. Amazing!
We just finished a benefit shirt for Kenny with Bad Brains and ROIR Records to further help Kenny and to expand awareness of Leukemia in general.
I’ll be releasing the shirts on Tuesday, April 6 through the Solitary Arts site. Two shirts and only 48 of each were made. Each shirt comes with the Solitary Arts inner tag. Artwork is original/official Bad Brains, the ROIR Records logo, and Kenny’s own artwork adorning both the front and back of each shirt.
There will be more coming about this as we draw closer to the premiere but we just wanted to hip you Jeff Tremaine’s new documentary on BMX legend Mat Hoffman. Jeff directed it and Spike and Johnny Knoxville produced as a part of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series which features a list of some amazing filmmakers and storytellers diving deep into the ESPN archive and shedding some light on some fantastic athletes and unique moments in sports history. Stay tuned!
