i make shiny things: Not cool Urban Outfitters, not cool.


One of my lovely customers sent me a message today with this link.

And here is my United/World of Love line:

My heart sank a little bit.  The World/United States of Love line that I created is one of the reasons that I was able to quit my full-time job.  They even stole the item name as well as some of my copy.

I’m very disappointed in Urban Outfitters. I know they have stolen designs from plenty of other artists. I understand that they are a business, but it’s not cool to completely rip off an independent designer’s work. 

I’ll no longer be shopping at any of their stores [they also own Free People & Anthropologie], and I’m going to do my best from here on out to support independent designers & artists.

Please feel free to pass this link on. I really appreciate all the support & love I’ve received today.

Eh, close enough.
Pres. Obama is officially releasing a copy of his Certificate of Live Birth for the second time today. In related news, bigots are frantically looking for a new way to say they don’t want an African-American to be President.

thedailywhat RIP: 41-year-old British-born filmmaker and photojournalist Tim Hetherington, co-director of the Oscar-nominated Afghanistan war documentary Restrepo, was killed today when an RPG struck a group of journalists in the Libyan city of Misrata.

Three others were also injured in the attack: Pulitzer Prize-nominated Getty photographer Chris Hondros, Panos Agency photographer Guy Martin — both of whom are said to be in serious condition — and freelancer Michael Brown, who was slightly wounded.

In his final tweet, posted just hours before the attack, Hetherington wrote: “In besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO.”

John Galliano fired from Dior

obliteratedheart The fast-moving chain of events began Thursday night when Galliano was arrested in the Paris bar La Perle, accused of hurling anti-Semitic insults at a nearby couple in an alleged violation of French laws designed to curb anti-Semitism. Dior, where he’s worked for nearly 15 years, suspended him Friday pending investigation. On Saturday, another woman came forward with a similar complaint. And on Monday, video began surfacing on the Internet apparently showing an earlier incident involving Galliano, who appears to be drunk, taunting two off-screen women, saying he “loved Hitler” and that their ancestors should be “gassed … and dead.”

Quentin Tarantino’s Next is a Western with Christoph Waltz

sameolddance Last week, in addition to finding that the full cut of Kill Bill complete with new anime sequence (aka Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair) would play the New Beverly Cinema in March, there were whisperings that Quentin Tarantino is busy assembling his new film. At the time we didn’t have any real word about what the movie would be, but now Italian actor and one-time spaghetti western star Franco Nero says that he is involved in a western with Quentin Tarantino. Further reports say that the director’s next film is definitely a western, and that it will star breakout Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz. But Jeremy updated today with several points, chief among them a firm statement that Quentin Tarantino is making a spaghetti western and that it will feature Christoph Waltz. He can’t confirm the involvement of Franco Nero or any of the other actors mentioned in the quotes above. Finally, he says that title (The Angel, the Bad and the Wise) is totally wrong, and that even when you account for possible Google Translate mangling, the title “isn’t even close.”

About American Apparel possibly going bankrupt

I don’t know. I buy a lot of their clothes, but I still say good riddance to them. On one hand, it is good that they were making the clothes in the US and paying their employees a fair wage. On the other, the creepy CEO, bad accounting practices, bad hiring practices as well as the fact most of…

i agree with most of this, but i do like their new styles now :)
