Re: But, Do You Want Mad Max 4?!


Oi vey! Remind me not to try to make hundreds upon hundreds of t-shirts the week before E3. This week was as hellish as it can probably get for a blogger/small time business man, as we tackled an insane amount of Meat Bun work (for us, anyway) in preparation for E3 and Comic Con. That's in addition to prepping for E3 and Comic Con for Kotaku!

After shipping off hundreds of tees on Wednesday and picking up another big batch today, we got another big order from a company I probably shouldn't yet disclose. Good news, to be sure, but I'm starting to understand what supply chain management is all about and why it's a Big Deal. On the fun side, I'm bringin' new shirts to E3! Woo!


I'll see your non-mullet this Sunday. For the record, I haven't had a haircut since February! Yikes!

I used to shave my head because of the sports I did but now I can't do them anymore I've let my hair grow and grow and grow and grow. It's down to my arse at the moment and I sport a beard like the chap who won the tennis competition.

I can't cut it off however, the last time I did so my daughter was about three. She sat and watched daddy lather up the brush and prepare the razor quite happily. I did the traditional beard shaving thing of paring it down gradually, mutton chops,goaty,handlebar and then Hitler moustache,(OH come on have you never wondered what you would look like with a Hitler tache?)

During all this she was perfectly fine, even amused. Until I shaved off the rest of the facial fuzz. She burst into racking sobs and the kind of snotty tears you only get from kids, she didn't want to go anywhere near me and avoided eye contact. While I was making lunch I kept seeing her out of the corner of my eye peeking around the kitchen door.

She told my girlfriend that it wasn't Daddy, as soon as the beard went I wasn't the same person it seems.

Even now at the age of 10 she gets embarrassed when I tell the story but still tells me not to shave my heard or beard.
