    MONEY MONDAYS

    MONEY MONDAYS

    Y'all know what time it is? It’s time to spend some cash.


    I bet you all are waiting on the day when I run out of catchy things to say as my title. I’m going to be honest...I think that time is coming soon. However, this Monday’s is a little less clickbait. Remember when I used to tell you about all the fun drops coming up? Clearly I’ve been a little side-tracked thinking of all the new music. SO sorry I neglected you and your bank accounts. I know you guys are probably dying to spend money. 


    So I touched briefly on this on Friday, but Blackbear got a whole new merch website. It’s literally all interactive. I’m going to be completely transparent and say I spent a couple hours just continuously going back and playing around with it. The concept is you can pretty much design the merch you want. You can choose if it's a hoodie or tshirt, then pick the color, then the color of the font. This makes things so much more unique. Like yeah you might have the same hoodie conceptually as someone else, but the colors could be totally different. If you’ve already used it, I want to see your combinations!


    I know, I know. I’ve been getting a little too Pop over here. What can I say. However, The Used dropped 100 “Gravity’s Rainbow” zip up hoodies. If you don’t follow them on social media, and couldn’t get your hands on one, I still recommend checking it out. The artwork is phenomenal. They tagged the artist on their Instagram, and their page is wild to checkout. I love when The Used does these little artists series! I think it's amazing. 


    Next exciting one, Dayseeker Summer Line. Guys, this is the epitome of hot girl/boy Summer. I don’t even know what to talk about first...KIDDING YES I DO. Bodysuits??? Like seriously??? I am obsessed with bodysuits. It’s the lazy girl way. However, it still looks so hot. I’ve always wanted to rep an artist on a onesie. I have no idea why. Again, this is my fave going out look. The bodysuit is so simple too, it could be a great conversation piece for when bars safely reopen again next year. Men, I didn’t forget about you. I told you it was hot boy Summer too.  While of course you could rock anything other than the bodysuit, unless that’s your vibe, then I LOVE THAT FOR YOU. They have some spicy shorts for you guys. They come in green and pink. You’ll be the hottest one at the pool, I guarantee it. 


    Beartooth also had their own Summer drop, and guess what? TIE DYE. You guys thought you heard the last of my tie dye rambles. Well, me too. The merch gods sensed this and decided to drop some more for me to talk about. Literally everything, but one, is tie dye. Can you believe it? I’m literally in heaven. However, while this is totally my vibe, I have to say one item that’s my favorite isn’t even the tie dye shirts. Don’t panic. IT’S SUNSCREEN. Literally what. I have yet to see someone come out with this, and it’s the perfect edition for a SUMMER line. I mean, yes, we are still in quarantine. I don’t want to talk about it. However, some of us have beaches and pools that we can safely distance at. Sunshine is good for the soul, trust me. So, you obviously need protection! This was definitely a solid add to their collection.


    Alright Madeon fans, we heard you. The corduroy hat is back! This one sells as fast as it comes, I can’t even get my hands on one. You guys are wild. However, this one is such a Summer staple, so I understand. You deserve it more than me, honestly. Is anyone thirsty? Silverstein came out with an aluminum bottle for anyone who just can’t get enough water. Also, get this. They came out with a BASKETBALL HOOP. Literally all these artists are just screaming for you guys to get outside. Cure that quarantine depression. Maybe I’ll get one too and we can all virtually shoot some hoops on our lunch break...could be fun??? 


    Clearly, we had a lot of exciting things happen. They’re all so good this time I can’t even play favorites. I want them all. So, as always, links are below. Get yours and tag us in it!


    ‘Til next timeeeeeeeeeeee

    MESSY MONDAYS

    MESSY MONDAYS

    Happy new week all you hooligans!

    Okay, I feel like my titles for these posts are getting super clickbait-y. I promise they’re not! Tell me your Monday’s aren’t a little messy...I’ll wait. Nobody asked, but I am going to tell you why today mine is particularly crazy. Friday, I had every intention of talking your ears off about Blackbear’s new single. However, the day slipped away from me, and I had to trash it. I know, so sad. So, that leads me back here. We’re going to catch up on the new tune, and catch up on life. Consider this a little break from reality.

    So, Blackbear released a single on Friday called, “queen of broken hearts.” Honestly, this song makes it seem like savage Bear is back. Don’t worry, he’s still out here being the best dad ever. I particularly love this song because of the funky beat in the back. He’s going on to say that his life has become dark, and that he will break someone into a thousand parts. However, as the song goes on, you’ll realize it’s because he is also a walking broken heart. C’mon, we all know the phrase, “hurt people, hurt people.” I hope you read that as it was intended to be spoken. It’s written really confusing, trust me it took me a second too. While this song is amazing, I don’t think that’s the best part. He’s coming out with part ONE of his LP, and he released the track names on Twitter. For me, I need to know the song titles in advance. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. Maybe I subconsciously need to prepare for what mood I’m going to be in while listening. Yeah, let’s go with that. He also dropped a new shirt to go with it. It’s the sparkly sad girl tears of our dreams. Go get it.

    Now, let’s talk about something a little more real-life. Let me know if you like these little Monday check-in’s, I’ll do them more. So, as we all know, 2020 is just the worst. It’s okay to be the most positive person on the planet, and admit this. I totally understand. For a while, I didn’t want to seem so negative, and I tried to have a positive outlook. Don’t get me wrong, there is still hope the year will turn around. Let’s all manifest it people! However, with recent Pop Culture news, it is hard to see the bright side. Which leads me to my next point. Everyone is going through something they don’t speak about. Kindness is always the answer. As I live my 9-5 life in the DMs with you all, I can’t help but notice people in the comments sections not treating each other the best. I am sure if you are reading this, you are probably not one of them. If you are, C’MON NOW. If we want to really dig deep, I can tell you that I promise your favorite artists see this all go down. So, when flowing through your week, remember, we are all human. We all have feelings, tragically. Let’s be a little kinder to one another.

    ‘Til next timeeeeeeee

    Weekly Recap

    Weekly Recap

    We made it everyone, it’s Friday.

    Do you feel like this week kind of blew over your head? If so, don’t worry, I’m here to recap what you missed. Merch drops, music news, and upcoming events are coming your way. 

    First, let’s discuss an update that literally nobody asked for. We joined the Tik Tok cult. Have you seen our “About Us” page? We are a FULL SERVICE merchandising company. Part of that service is entertainment. You’re welcome. Feel free to let us know any dances you want to see us perform, what specific artist merch you want us to wear, and which of our artists’ songs you want to hear. You other merch companies could never. 

    Okay back to our regularly scheduled programming. We’re going to talk about burning a hole in your wallet. There were some pretty steamy merch drops this week, if I do say so myself. We’ll start off with Taylor Janzen, because I haven’t talked your ear off about her enough this week. We just launched a few of her awesome items on our store yesterday. My favorite? The puff ink hoodie. The back reads, “Sad Songs For Everyone,” in adorable fun writing. I mean, c’mon, puff ink is so nostalgic. Everyone’s childhood includes them somewhere, doodling on something, with puffy paint. Am I wrong? Don’t worry though, if hoodies and puffy ink aren’t your thing, we have a few more things to choose from. Maybe you’re old school and want to pick up a cd to play in your car, or if you’re cool, a Walkman. Throwback. We also have hats, to give you protection from this warm sun coming back, or t-shirts to rock at work. Whatever mood you’re in, find it now in our store! 

    Next up we have The Used. This one is particularly cool because the whole website is an interactive experience. With items that haven’t been released yet, a tarot card holds its place. Cool, right? They’re basically predicting your future for you, and your destiny is to purchase some merch. Currently, they are expected to have four drops. Today marked number two! They marked this next drop with a new dyed tee. If you look at the previous drop, you’ll notice a running theme! However, with this dyed tee, they shook it up a little bit. My personal favorite, “The Hanged Man Tee,” sold out extremely fast. Which is why I’d definitely advise setting reminders for the rest of their drops! Each design is unique, and I can’t wait to see what the cards predict next!

    Lastly, an artist you can check out right here, is Hands Like Houses. Is it just me, or does tour merch just vibe differently? In the best way. That’s what we have here! Whether you saw them or not, these items are pretty sick. Each piece has a different vibe, making it easy to find something for everyone! Maybe you saw them at a show, but you were too busy living in the moment to really stop and take a look. Now’s your chance! If we’re playing favorites here, like I have been this whole time, the Mandala Speckle Long Sleeve is my winner. Mandala’s always give me a sort of mystical vibe. I feel like everyone loves them too. However, they’re a limited item, so get it before it’s gone!

    Now, some music news. Everyone’s favorite sad boy, Blackbear, has been topping Spotify’s hits charts for a hot minute now. With “me & ur ghost,” circulating the top hits charts, it makes you wonder, is everyone haunted by an ex lately? If so, I feel for you. However, if any of you have fallen behind on pop culture news, like I did a while ago, Blackbear has a cub! Just a couple weeks ago, a little baby boy came into the world. Will his music take a shift from sad boy club, to happy new dad club? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. For all you Lil Xan fans, he just released a new single today, “Wide Awake.” For another emo boy, this song is relatively upbeat. All our other favorite artists seem to be currently busy creating new magic for our ears. Or, having the time of their lives touring. We love to see it! 

    So, what do we have to look forward to besides new music, hopefully? Well, as a little recap, you can be sure to have exciting weekly merch drops by The Used. Also, has anyone noticed festival season is quickly approaching? Excited to see the festival drops all of our favorites have. Who are you most excited to see this year? For all of our electronic music fans, Madeon is always hard at work visualizing new merch concepts to surprise his fans. Let me just say, what he’s working on now is HOT. He’s also playing plenty of festivals all over the world this year, so you can’t miss him! 

    Tune back in next week for more exciting exclusives from Absolute Merch!
