voting controversy from the vintage vantage site

it’s been 4 years since this all happened. this is right from the vv site:

It all started with Kat Storemski. The outspoken 21-year-old from Florida complained to MTV that our voting t-shirt was giving young people the wrong idea about voting. MTV News ran the story, and what followed can only be described as a media explosion. We were soon fielding early morning calls from the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR – everybody wanted to know why we hated democracy so much.

Even Russell Simmons was talking poop. Then Harvard University chimed in and our shirts were banned from stores across the country.

Uhh, what?

Our favorite part was when Fox News came to our house to cover the story – while we didn’t answer the door, we did let Holden and Nacho (dressed in voting t-shirts) out to play with our new friends. They got along great! Look, they’re kissing!

When the dust cleared, we collected some of our favorite quotes on the subject – click here to check em out.

Our vicious attempt to poison the minds of young people.

But the story doesn’t end there! With election day fast approaching, we posted an offer on this website – free voting t-shirts for anybody who promised to wear the shirt to the polls. The response was overwhelming, as the Camp Cool faithful proved once and for all that young people can appreciate irony and participate in the political process at the same time.

tumor or not tumor?

the vet called with holden & nacho’s blood tests & they’re both “pretty much perfect” which is great but she’s recommending surgery to take off holden’s tumors.

she stuck a needle in them to test while we were at the office and said she’s 99% positive they’re benign.

the tumors have been there for about 4 years now, starting with one – the biggest golf ball looking one – now there are 4, all on holden’s ribcage (cheetah chest) and don’t get in his way.

they’d have to put him under for the surgery

he’s 9 1/2 years old, which is like in his late 60’s people years

it would cost $500-600, which really means $750

i don’t want these to get to be the size of grapefruit & put stress on his other organs

if i wait much longer he’ll be too old for surgery

but they’re not cancerous and he’s in great health and that’s a lot of fucking money

anybody with tips, experience, advice, pointers, a rusty razor, let me know

holden votes “no”
