  1. Hey guys, hope 2020 isn't busting your balls too hard. Was just thinking this morning that its so wild how many of you guys were around back during 9/11 and now will be able to later look back and say you were on here posting for the shit show that's been 2020. Anyhow, I know a few of you noticed I'd been MIA for the better part of two months and maybe a couple of you have noticed I've been lurking and posting again for the last week or two. Assume you guys are aware of the situation, but figured I'd post an update and do another one of my updates to keep you guys looped in. The screen printing business really turned a corner these last couple months. We'd honestly been doing fairly well for a new business since what I consider the official launch; September of 2019 when the website went live and I started really doing outreach. But its interesting to see how we happen to be one of those businesses that has actually benefited from COVID. Most of the industry is in CA with a lot in the North East. Obviously those areas were hard hit with all the shutdowns and meanwhile I've engineered my life around social distancing, so we were well positioned for this mess. Couple that with a lot of relationships, colleagues and friends from my old life and that lead to us getting super slammed with work. So for like 2 - 2.5 months or so, we basically worked 90+ hour work weeks trying to keep up with a series of huge jobs that came through. Actually have a number of jobs on deck this week and next, but these are all much easier to service and we've improved out processes and efficiencies exponentially in these last months so not the avalanche of work that the preceding couple of months were. Anyhow, we've since hired 4 additional full time people and added a roster of about 5 more temp workers. We're talking to our press manufacturer about several pieces of heavy equipment we're looking into getting for next summer and will very likely be moving into a 10,000+- sq ft building sometime next year. Anyhow, its pretty wild and being honest, I've had a tough time wrapping my head around whats happening and what my next steps should be. Seen lots of companies fail when they grow too fast and likewise, 2020 is a shit show and its only going to get worse as far as my personal opinion on the subject goes. Likewise, there's a huge opportunity here that will allow for a lot of exciting things and you guys already know that I plan to funnel a lot of that success and resource back into 12ozProphet and the brand. So in regards to screen printing, I'm still looking for good help. Most permanent positions are filled for now, but we'll be staffing again in Spring, if not sooner. I'm still open to internships and part time work that can likely turn into permanent positions if it works out exceptionally well. We definitely have a good thing right now and I'm looking to continue assembling the team that's going to keep it growing and improving. Plus being located where we are and the lifestyle that all that entails has been a hugely awesome decision that seems to be validated more and more with each days news. Anyhow, if any of you are looking for a big change or know someone that sounds like a good fit, DM me or email. As for 12ozProphet, obviously I'll be around a lot more regularly, at least until the next huge drop gets dropped in my lap. Even then I think we have things pretty well dialed in so even if things go bonkers again, I should be able to maintain on here. @Kults @Mercerand @Dirty_habiThave been hitting me up from time to time with news or updates. ------------ As far as the brand and 12ozProphet... I'm definitely going to replace the main website. Been a plan for ages and I've worked off and on putting something new together. Hate leaving it as a shop only, though the challenge is always keeping a stream of worthwhile content up. If nothing else, I've always wanted to have a place to showcase some of the notable projects and stuff we've worked on and perhaps have a place to post some basic news and updates. Not sure, but definitely want it to be more than a shop. Likewise, I am still planning a podcast. Few people I had sort of helping out have mostly disappeared so will need to figure out a manageable plan, but I havent given up on that yet. Likewise, I also want to create a regular email. Once a week or so, but definitely once or twice a month. Thinking of trying to reassemble a contributor team to help out with that, but we'll see. As far as the brand / product, that's obviously going to be a big focus. We'll start to see some of the real advantage we have with the screen printing company soon enough. Obviously I managed to push out some tees over the last couple years, but as mentioned above, we're turning a corner with that side of the business so I'll reapply efforts to the brand side that'll capitalize on that. Also leveraging some relationships that are being strengthened as a result of the screen printing stuff to pull the brand through the door and open some opportunities. I need to dust off some old plans now that I have a little more to work with, but that's going to be a big part of my focus over these next months as well. Anyhow, just wanted to pop in and drop some news. Kinda cathartic to work through it and put it into a post and figure I owe it to you guys to mention whats happening. Lots of really good things, even if it seems half the world is burning. Hope you guys are all doing well.

  6. Them are hashbrowns Mudder. Here is how I do em - Shred the potato, box grater is fine, food processor is faster but requires more dish washing -Immediately place the shredded potato in cold water to rinse out the starch -Strain the potatoes in a colander, then spread out onto a clean, rinsed, thin dishtowel or equivalent. Wrap the towel around the potatoes kind of like a burrito and wring out the whole affair to remove water and starch -Place them in a bowl and toss in some salt -Prepare a pan to medium or maybe medium high with butter and olive oil -Spread the potatoes and form a patty, place a lid over the patty, like right over it, the diameter lid will need to be smaller than the diameter pan, this forms a little dome for the patty to steam and cook in -Cook for like ten minutes or something till the crust on the bottom holds the patty together when the pan is jerked, you do not want to rush the jerking as if you do it early you will cause the patty to separate remove the lid -To flip put a upside down plate right on top of the patty, flip the pan so the patty ends up on the plate, cooked side up and then slide the patty back on the pan -Cook until done, will be faster than the first side, add cheese if you are a teenager Or make latkes https://www.markbittman.com/recipes-1/latkes I use this recipe, more or less, if you do not have breadcrumbs, flour is fine. I still wring out the potatoes because that is how I do it. Hanger Steak, Beet Greens, Gratin Potatoes Fuck it, I am not going to edit to rotate

  7. @misteraven- I've been watching this with my gf, it's pretty damn good. https://go.discovery.com/tv-shows/homestead-rescue Funny enough the woke culture got him last week on Aug 19th w/ stories coming out about Discovery channel having to distance themselves from the homophobic song that Marty Raney released in a 1997 album he made. Better not have ever done anything that anyone can bring back up ever. We're all living in the past these days. Anyway, Homestead Rescue is a fucking excellent show if you like living on your own land and being responsible for your own survival.

  12. Gotta say this thread is really making me scratch my head. Honestly, I thought everybody on this fine forum would only be wearing the freshest kicks! Maybe I walked past the local graff shop a bit too often, which has turned into a bit of an elitist rap fashion eldorado, as it seems. Yet still I wonder: 1. how do you guys actually run in cowboy boots? 2. who the fuck actually wears cowboy boots in 2020 anyway (gotta admit I'm just jelly - never had some, would actually love some : ) 3. how is it so many of the sneakers in this thread look like they're from the nineties? 4. props to @-Rage-for daring to post that WFH outfit, looks like my grandpa from the waist down if it weren't for the fluoro green socks (wtf) 5. I see a lot of New Balance. They're super comfortable, yet everybody and their mother wears them here now, it's ridiculous. 6. too many Sk8 High's, not enough Half Cabs! 7. all you people wearing wooly socks in your sandals: if I see you walking around like that in my hood I'm gonna call the police. 8. @LUGRreally love those brown Wallabees.. they're never available like that where I live 9. I actually ordered those from US eBay once - shipping and tax fees being more expensive than the shoes - and they were too small in the end.. FML 10. there's absolutely nothing wrong with "sporty and rich"

  13. What if you were sitting in your living room watching a episode of little women Atlanta, eating a 3 piece, when all of a sudden a mf plane dives into your shit?? https://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/groton-neighbors-describe-what-happened-as-plane-crashed-into-house/2320389/ My moms lives 4 houses down from this shit. This is the second time Ive seen it happen in 22 years. These people lived, astoundingly. Last time like 5 people died and washed up on the homies back lawn. I can’t imagine the wild amount of shook you’d be in if a fuckin plane crashed into your living room. W....T....F.... Last photo is mine. They gotta demo the house. But maaaaaan are these niggas finna come UP on the bank acct, gahhhhhd damn lol! Millions!

  16. @glorydaysit was on Netflix for a minute and is now on Prime Video with ads. It's an interesting watch and doesn't have an artistic approach like Weaving Shibusa does so don't go into it with set expectations.

  17. @glorydaysyasss BiG SoHo I swear has so many PBJ'S unless they're the sole supplier stateside. I've been out of the denim loop for a hot minute so I'm probably wrong. Have you seen the documentary Self Edge produced or Blue Gold?

  21. @LUGRPic is a couple months old. I had them unaltered until I lost weight to hem them to a length I'd like. I eventually got them hemmed, but did not anticipate continuing to lose more weight hence they're for sale.

  27. ..by the way those do got kind of a bad rep over here as electronics have so much reliability issues I've heard, many prefer the Mercedes for conversions - looking through this thread I haven't spotted any so far - are these on the road in the US as well? You know like - old police cars lol and some oversized ones

  28. Don't you get to keep anything that falls in your yard as yours? I’ll be honest, I don’t really understand how the legal system works in this country. I think it’s unfair, needlessly confusing. I’ll give you an example. One of my next-door neighbor’s kids is climbing a tree on their property. Falls out of the tree and lands on my fence. Now I’m being told I’ve got to get myself a lawyer… if I want to keep my half of the kid. How is that fair? And who’s going to reimburse my taxidermy? -Anthony Jeselnik

  32. God damn this thing looks like it's for TPWFs. Doesn't even look like a full size truck. I'd still take a ~'88 Bronco with the 351W in it, personally. I also couldn't find the sense to buy this because, a) never buy the first model year of something new, and b) I bought a brand new car once, not worth it for me again. Depreciation sucks and I don't keep cars that long. I've had my current car 3 years, that's the longest I've kept a car in my life.

  33. I was thinking that too. I’m not too impressed with his interior, there’s a lot of high end, custom sprinter conversions that have better amenities, seating, and beds; which he could easily afford, but everyone has different tastes and needs. Plus he lives in his girlfriend’s house most of the time.
