Label Love: The Gap

It was 1987. I was just entering the 7th grade and I was a sucker for everything Reebok and Gap. I was a tiny little yuppie in training. While my love for Ronald Reagan and hi-top aerobic sneakers in every color of the rainbow waned, my love of the Gap did not. I still love the Gap.

Ho, Ho, Hulett

Hulett was an artist and worked on some of my favorite classic Disney animated films including Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty among many others.

Fro Yo

I have thick, curly hair that I inherited from my father. My mother had medium weight straight hair so she just didn’t know what to do with it when I was a kid, so she decided to cut it short into a sort of Q-Tip mullet that I had frequently trimmed and blown out just like Tony Manero.

I let my hair grow long as I got older but I never really learned how to do it and sometimes I just want to live naturally and free and rock a white girl fro. I dig it, man. I dig it.
