Fassbinder Red Cowgirl Boots

Tell me, was it completely pointless of me to title these the Fassbinder boots? I'm starting to realize that no one knows who Fassbinder is.


Available at our Etsy shop.

...and then there were Robert Crumb Sneakers

Holy crapola, I can't believe the underground comix Gods finally answered my prayers and brought me these Robert Crumb Vans.





Is it a widely known fact, however, that Crumb's images of Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural never got copyrights on them which lead to every mofo using his images left, right and centre. And if you know anything about Rober Crumb, it's doubtful that he would have approved of Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural sneakers.  Shame on the sneaker "gods".

Speaking of which, Crumb's illustrated Book of Genesis has finally been release.  Can't wait to see it!

Oh hells no! Barbra Streisand's unexpected connection with our Etsy shop.

The most popular item we ever listed on our Etsy shop, icouldbegoodforyou.etsy.com, was hands down our "Painfully adorable Bow Sweater aka Dancing Sweater". Unbeknownst to us, this sweater was copied almost exactly for Barbra Streisand's recently release doll. Ms. Streisand claims to have designed the top herself in the 1960s for an event at the Coconut Grove. But the lack of photographic evidence on the internet leads us to believe that she totally bit our style. Nice try Babs.


The Babs Doll as revealed on Oprah.

Off tangent, here's the number she wore at the Oscars when won for Best Actress for Funny Girl.
