So yea we made 20 and we’re both surprised weve made 2, but somehow they get easier and harder at the same time and since there aren’t too many complaints (there are some) we’ll keep them coming.
Here’s a look at Bitchslap issue 20 featuring interviews with Burton Snowboards Creative Director Greg Dacyshyn, Huf’s Austyn Gillette, Copenhagen label SoundESC, Knitting nutter Lærke Bagger, Dutch motorcycle artist Menze Kwint, Danish metal weirdo’s Förtress and to top it all off we’ve thrown a very romantic photo of Dick & Nanny getting hitched in H.C. Ørestedspark.
As always, for those not on the distribution flow then this is available on our shop for about the price of 2 beers for our efforts. Read more →

Honestly, there are enough brands out there trying to coast on the Been Trill/Pyrex vibe. I’ve seen enough emoji graphics and branded long-sleeve shirts for a lifetime. Vancouver-based MMVIII on the other hand is actually pushing the envelope in terms of how a streetwear aesthetic is applied. Read more →
I was wearing floral shirts before you heard Nirvana. And if you’re reading this ‘blog’ you were probably born after ‘that Nirvana guy’ got his brains blown out in a conspiracy theory. Still here? We got some free bottles of Somersby with Pomegranate flavour (actually a very healthy fruit with a lot of anti-oxidants, but careful you don’t get it on your shirt, unless it’s floral – you don’t notice stains) and because the nice people at Wonderland Agency Read more →
It seems Carhartt WIP can’t get enough of Cologne based photographer Alexander Basile. In his latest endeavour for the brand he has produced Neon-Ending, a 6 minute look book weaving through the lives of a couple who do quite a lot of hooning around on a scooter. Why not? Read more →

The last Tumbled Upon we did almost got us kicked off the internet because facebook is apparently run by a bunch of hardcore christians who despise good ass.
We’ve been lazy and useless recently or to be honest, mostly working on that paper magazine we do on the side of our cool blog. It’s called Bitchslap, you might have seen it, the 20th issue is coming out in a week or so.
More Tuesday Tumbled Upon

Well it IS fashion week after all.Oh you didn’t know. Just check your instagram. Selfie levels are at an all time choke-me now high and way too much attention is being paid to ‘working’. It IS so hard though. Gosh. Anyway, speaking of fashion, we’re into it. We wear clothes and we like photos of people wearing clothes. Hence this new photo series in from Nikolaj Sloth Didriksen and stylist Julie Asmussen. After their last shoot we posted they’ve decided to run a sticky marshmellow themed pink series with men. Why not? I’m into this. And I wish that hair stylist Simon Shaaban would come and do my hair every morning with a silver comb. Ouch! Read more →
Pretty much everything Poler Stuff make is rad. Just the other day I found myself putting their infamous ‘Napsack’ in my cart and heading to the checkout, only to find the shipping was twice the cost of the product. Cancelled. Bummer. Still want one. Photographer Kealan Shilling was fortunate enough to shoot a ‘Farewell to Summer’ series with Poler, and we’ve got the full set of imagery here to share. Good stuff, and definitely captures the mood and vibe of the brand, at least from where I’m standing – and I’m actually sitting down, sounded by invoiced and a camera with no charger, a couple of hats and hundreds of children’s toys. True story. Read more →

Thoughts while looking at Tumblr this week include gems like is Paul Rudd going to age gracefully into a stone fox? How come people don’t say “asstastic” more? And what if you really could just copy and paste in real life? Enjoy some crap and some not crap I found on the internet. Read more →
You did it, first real week of 2014 done. Pat yourself on the back, buy yourself something nice and shiny, spend hours on male model tumblrs with a glass of white wine. Or check out Fe-boner instead. Read more →
Missed the last two weeks of Feboners as I was locked into a really pressing engagement of eating Quality Street, cheese and finishing a large vat of mulled wine. So here is a bumper one. Read more →
My internet has all but exploded into a mess of Beyonce gifs, screen grabs and OMG I CAN’T EVEN THIS IS TOO PERFECT WHY AM I NOT BEYONCE. Which is a question we all ask ourselves every day. It’s a feboner with a fuck ton of Beyonce gifs, because I can’t even. Read more →
