I like how the Hot Topic description is completely out of touch with the reference: "Fitted Pink Tee with a picture of some orange cat playing a piano or something. Above is the cryptic phrase: 'Play me off, Keyboard Cat'... whatever, buy it! it's so punk rock!"


I can't tell you how excited I was to talk to Brad about being from the same crappy North Carolina area. We grew up minutes away from each other. I understand he makes about 24 cents from every shirt. I think that number should be more like "all the monies," because he's a funny guy.


I've always suspected that Hot Topic's market is exclusively 12 year old girls, and the hair and makeup on that model ("Jenny Lewis Geisha"? I don't know) is not convincing me otherwise.
