Need some OBEY gear in your life?

Sample sales are always great places to rock some hot deals on hot threads and OBEY Clothing's 2008 summer sample sale should be no different. It'll be going down Friday May 30th from 9am to 7 pm and on Saturday May 31st from 8am to 3pm in 3500 W. Carriage Dr, Santa Ana 92704.

If you're ready to OBEY, prepare your credit cards and expect to come home with giant bags full of gear; or at the very least look as awesome as the guy in the back of the flyer:

Skeletrino & Skeletrina

Almost a year ago Simone Legno, of Tokidoki fan girl dimonium, let us here at Okee Dorkee know that a vinyl toy of Adios and Ciao Ciao's kitty Skeletrino was in the process of getting made -- remember that post

The time has come . . er, almost. Strangeco just posted photos of the hell kitten and his fancified feline companion Skeletrina. 

Check out the golden details on her. Kitty's got some mad style!

No word on when these will be released. Hopefully by the time Comic Con rolls around >^_^<

Reading, Learning, and Destroying

When I was a junior in high school my first period class I was actually a T.A for Mr. Vargas; a Spanish teacher that I previously had my freshman year. I chose him because I knew his aides had it chill. I'd pick up his mail every morning from the office then sit infront of one of the computers in the room either doing homework that I didn't finish, study, eat, sleep, or surf the net. I suppose I occasionally graded papers and tests, but he'd usually ask me if I wasn't too busy doing anything else.

One of the sites that I came across when I wasn't giving kids F's for not conjugating verbs correctly was EVILMONITO. I don't remember exactly what attracted me to this online magazine (one of the few of its kind at the time), but I just remember scouring through the pages and being amazed by its contents. Perhaps it was the theme of deconstructing pop culture. I have to give credit to Mr. Kim and EM for introducing me to things that I am in fact still into today. The magazine content on the site itself has been on hiatus since 2005 and things have definitely grown since then. As an avid fan of this site, I invite you to take a look at the new things brewing at EVILMONITO. Be prepared to read, learn, and destroy.

Knowing is half the Battle...

What 'cha know about them G.I. Joe's?
I stumbled upon this hilarious game last night as I was looking for more info about the live action G.I. Joe Movie that is slated to be released in 2009.

So until then, relive your childhood (did i just date myself??) and play "Do you Know Your G.I.Joe?"

Pick your team:
G.I. Joe

I love the Family Feud-esque set!
All questions are inspired by the 80s cartoon tv show, G.I. Joe. You are given 10 questions. You get them right, you earn 100 points but if you get them wrong, the opposing team earns 100 points.

The contestants are the original 80s G.I. Joe action figures. The makers of the grand game show them in different poses -- waving hands in the air when they (you) get an answer right, pounding their fists on their poduim when you get the answer wrong. There are plenty other "wtf" moments that will keep you entertained (ok, maybe just me. wha...Cobra Commander doing the wave?!?)
and at the end of the show, watch them mingle ;)

Quasi Super Vomit of a Post

Yes, I know it has been quite some time since my last post. The time in between then and now I was probably living in the library study room with 8 or so other guys going over things such as cost-benefit analysis, 1/2mv², amount of distance a spring may compress as a 50 lb head smashes against it, and maybe even how to use a new TI-89 Titanium Graphing Calculator...

Other than my cell phone and baby wipes, I use this thing practically everyday. The simultaneous equation solver (a basic matrix), and polynomial root finder (quadratic equation solver) make finding variables much, much easier. Not to mention the Notefolio program helps when your 3"x5" card just isn't enough. Nahmean?

With Claudio's (Coheed and Cambria) new comic Kill Audio, Evil Ink Comics in conjunction with VinylCut will release a 7" figure of a super stabbed Claudio. A bloody variant will also be released. On top of that, a SECRET LIMITED variant will be released at none other than... you know... the San Diego Comic-Con.

Have YOU seen the second episode of Macross Frontier? I still haven't seen it, but I thought the first episode was good enough to make me feel that I should continue the series.

I thought the reworked version of Do You Remember Love? was a nice touch. NOSTALGIA, son...

By the way, I'm looking for this shirt. Apparently they only sold them in Akihabara in Japan during some huge anime festival or whatever. Not sure where else to get them or who I can proxy them from. Some one, please help me out. I think I may be a size LARGE in these tees.

Anyone? Help?

Snap, Crackle and Pop meets Rap, Hood and Hip-Hop!

Keeping with my previous post about cereal, comes another breakfast mashup, where this time cereal meets street. Kellogg's, the company behind character-driven breakfast cereal mainstays, joins street clothing company Under The Hood for a new collaborated line they're hoping will leave fans of both scenes clamoring, "They're Grrrreat!"

Kellogg's famous characters are all here, from Frosted Flake's Tony the Tiger, the jolly Rice Krispies trio Snap, Crackle and Pop, Honey Smacks' Dig'Em the Frog, Corn Flakes' Cornelius Rooster, and finally Toucan Sam of Froot Loops fame. All your favorite cereal mascots jump out of the box and land emblazoned in outlined patterns over shirts, jeans, hoodies, and track jackets. You can check out all the styles at Under The Hood's online store.

The brands definitely acknowledge that the strange combination of the two flavors is definitely a taste that'll split the masses between those that "Dig'Em" while others will feel soggy. In full compliance with that thought, check out the models' faces:

On the other hand we've seen every cartoon character from Fat Albert to Bugs Bunny on clothing, but Kellogg's/Under The Hood's line seems much more out there and therefore giving it a much bigger "WTF/Awesome" factor to the mix!

So whether you think its the most absurd thing that has happened to the urban clothing waves or perhaps the most genius, one thing is for sure:

Nothing spells out BOLD better than rocking out an outfit that says, "Follow Your Nose" while pointing to Toucan Sam's rainbow snout splattered over your ass cheeks!!

Personally, I know I NEED this Honey Smacks Track jacket IN MY LIFE to rock with my Reebok Voltron ERS Racer Green Lion 3 kicks:

NOW that would be a mashup-mashup!
