Update #4

Grow up!


Amanda emailed me this today, a conversation between McNulty and The Bunk on The Wire.

Det. William 'Bunk' Moreland: [on detail] A different look for our boy.
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Yeah, Perry Ellis, or something.
Det. William 'Bunk' Moreland: Now, how would a just-rolled-out-of-bed-looking motherfucker like you, know the designer?
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: [pauses] Okay, I'm guessing.
Det. William 'Bunk' Moreland: It's a Joseph Abboud. He puts dark buttons instead of brass on his blazers. That's the Abboud signature.
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: You know what they call a guy who pays that much attention to his clothes, don't you?
Det. William 'Bunk' Moreland: A grown-up.

Update #3

We're moving... doing it, you know!


Adam and I met yesterday, and we've got a shooting schedule. Our first episode will focus on denim. More on this later, but your funding will allow us to actually pay our crew and get equipment we need.

We're very excited about this. Putting a site together now, and I hope you'll all subscribe to the blog and whatnot.

And thanks to Ask Metafilter, our first advertiser! They pledged $1500, and we'll be making a short commercial for them for the inaugural episode.
