Movie Review: Blood Father

I’ve been watching more movies lately. This typically happens when I need to brainstorm new ideas. The movies don’t usually have anything to do with the ideas I come up with, but it relaxes my brain.

I originally sat down with the intention of watching “Ransom.” Obviously it was not available on any streaming device, so I settled with, “The Blood Father.” Holy shit, am I happy about this life decision.

Mel Gibson plays a recovering drunk that lives in this trailer park recovery center where he has his support buddy living near him (played by William H Macey.) His teenage daughter has been missing for years but has now reached out to him for money, because she is now in huge trouble with the Mexican drug cartel.

Without giving any spoilers, Gibson and his daughter go on a dangerous adventure to escape the cartel. While his daughter feels terrible about dragging him into this mess, Gibson’s character is actually having the time of his life.

If you a mindless, simple, movie experience – this is great. There is a certain rage/aggravation that Mel Gibson has always been able to showcase better than any other actor. Probably because he’s a raging lunatic in real life.

“Blood Father” is awesome.

Stay Strong. Treat Yourself. Treat Someone Else, Support Small Business

This stay at home thing is really getting old. Every day is the same, the concept of time no longer exists, and we’ve never watched so much television. One thing is for certain though – every day starts with a hot cup of coffee.

I had a woman contact me last week to make her a men’s shirt design on a women’s tee. In her conversation to me, she expressed genuine excitement for the shirt, but felt an underlying guilt purchasing an item like this while millions are suffering. I totally understood her and often felt similar while buying “non-essentials.”

Being stuck in your house for this long has extreme negative effects, one of them being mental health. People deal with it in different ways depending on severity. The truth is, if you can afford to and you are fortunate enough to be able to, purchasing something for yourself is a good thing. Or you may consider buying for someone else who might be having a tough time, especially if you buy through a small business.

While corporate giants like Amazon have stopped delivering non-essential items quickly, small businesses are eager and motivated to get their products out to you as soon as possible. You are able to help yourself or someone else with a fun, thoughtful gift, while helping struggling small businesses stay alive.

I write this not so that you order from us. We are fortunate enough to be doing OK during this pandemic. I write this so that you order from any small business – both local and online.

The Joy of Introducing Wrestling to Kids

As a kid growing up, wrestling was always my favorite thing, especially back in the 80’s and 90’s. There was just something about it I loved. It wasn’t the violence, it was the ridiculous drama. The good guy vs the bad guy. Although that formula barely exists today, there is some magic left in this classic form of entertainment, especially for kids.

Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t for everyone I can see parents reading this and completely freaking out. Wrestling can still be for kids, you just have to know what to show them, and what not to show them. This is especially true when deciding to attend a live show. I’ll get into that in a bit.

Step 1: The Introduction

My first introduction to wrestling was watching my great grandmother, who barely spoke English, watch Hulk Hogan religiously. I believe she had a poster of him in her home. Today, in the age of endless entertainment, I had to come up with a different strategy. One that was good……reaallllly goooddddd. So for that I obviously chose to have Nacho Libre shown on family movie night.

Nacho Libre is not “woke,” so be prepared for some “cultural appropriation” or any other weird new labels that exist today. That aside, I’m sorry, but it’s a hilarious film with a good story, and a good message. Needless to say, my kid love it.

Step 2: The Live Show

From there we would have little matches after dinner, which she loves. I bought her a Women’s WWE Championship Belt, which she defends all the time. Finally the moment came. WWE Live was coming to our town.

So here is the thing with wrestling. Not all of it is for kids. With an audience base as broad as theirs, they have specific programming that is for kids and isn’t for kids. WWE Raw and Smackdown events are more geared towards adults. WWE Live shows are not.  These are known as “House Shows,” which are not televised.  The crowd is mostly kids, so it’s the perfect event to bring your child to.

Step 3: Splurge

I don’t typically spoil my kid, although my mom thinks we do. On wrestling day, you do. Take your kid out to eat, get a desert, buy a few things from the gift shop.  You only get to do this stuff a few times, make it special.  Before you know it, your kid is going to have her face buried in a cell phone in her room.  Now is the time. Unless your kid is a total shit, they will remember this for a long time and will be happy to have shared that bond with you for the day.

 

 

A Gigantic “Thank You”!

This has been an awesome year for The Super Sweet Shirt Co.  I wanted to thank everyone who supported this little underground t-shirt store this year, especially during the holidays.

After I take a little break in January, I will be back with more designs and products to make 2019 even better.

Happy Holidays to all, and to all, a sweet shirt!

 

Free Shipping November!

This is it! The biggest sale I have all year.  Every November I reward my awesome customers with a huge November sale so that they can gear up for the holidays.  This year its free shipping all November which will save you some dough for sure.

Don’t miss out! Sale is currently going on in my Etsy store, Amazon store, and at our main website (which is the cheapest).

The Super Sweet Shirt Co. on HBO’s “Insecure”.

Occasionally this little underground shirt company hits it big in terms of exposure.  It started off with Mario Lopez holding our AC Slater onesie up on a Tampa morning news show.  That one was awesome as I was a pretty big fan of “Saved By the Bell.” Then our “Are You Afraid of the Dark” tee was featured in a Buzz Feed article for 90’s Nickelodeon “must have” items.  This one was so huge that I had to shut down for a day.  This week we were featured in the Season Finale of “Insecure” on HBO, which is a great show if you have never watched it.  The had requested an overnight delivery of our Bruce Leroy Tee.  I had low expectations of it ever showing up on TV, but to my surprise, it made it!  I had noticed an increase in orders, and sure enough it had made it.

 

 

The shirt is currently available at our main site, Etsy Shop, eBay store, and now on Amazon.

The David Tee

New design in all shops this week.  I had the idea to do this years ago but kept putting it off.   This week, I decided to go for it.

This amazing Lost Boys Tee is available for both men and women.

So fly over to our website, or the Etsy, eBay, Amazon stores and pick yourself up one of these bad boys!
