"Wrath of the Titans" Movie Release

Storyline: A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus-the demigod son of Zeus-is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. Go and see this movie! It is set to be great!

The Hundreds: Screen Resolution

Bobby Hundreds reflects back on the brand’s past and important aspect of the brand’s development — their experiences involving screen-printing. He somberly remembers the disaster of his first screenprint investment, and how he and Ben entertained fears of never getting that dream off the ground.

------- So we showed up on our friend’s doorstep, unannounced, and demanded to see our product. One by one, he pulled each crumpled t-shirt from the floor mess. The first tee’s graphic was a little too high in placement. He shrugged, “It’s not so bad,” and picked up another. This time the print was upside down. A little flustered, he tossed it aside and grabbed the next shirt. The print was on the wrong side. “There’s always a margin of error,” he justified, “you have to expect a few fuck-ups.”

“Then how do you explain this?,” Ben asked, as he reached down and handed our friend a completely blank t-shirt. No print anywhere.

And that was that. 15 minutes later we were sitting in the car, doors flung open, staring at the roof with the sun glinting in our eyes. “Our company’s over before we even started,” we wailed in self-pity. That was everything, all our cash that had gone into the blanks — right down the drain with the ink washed from the screens. -------

But with a little determination, and refusal to take ‘no’ for an answer from one of the area’s largest screen printers, The Hundreds more than got off the ground, creating an institution in streetwear. Check out the rest of the post from Bobby Hundreds here.

Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline

The Spring Festival, held annually in Southern California, was the home to the unveiling of the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline. Based on the Challenger SXT Plus, the Rallye Redline features the same 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft torque as the standard model, but it gets a host of visual, interior and handling upgrades. For starters, the exterior gets a triple red stripe and new 20-inch wheels with subtle red stripes around the rims. Inside, the theme continues with available Radar Red leather seats. Upping the ante, the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline features the Super Sport Group as standard equipment and includes: performance-tuned suspension with 42 percent firmer front and 22 percent firmer rear monotube shocks. Making sure the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline delivers world-class levels of stopping power, larger performance disc brakes replace the standard set. Pricing for the 2012 Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline is listed at $28,745 USD with availability beginning next month.
