The world is changed: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the Earth, I smell it in the air… Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.
…And some things that should not have been forgotten… were lost. History became legend… legend became myth.
…in the gloom of Gollum’s cave… it waited.
…its time had now come.
The above image is just a mock up (obviously). We’re going with the RED color and the BLACK ink (just to get all anarchy-ey on you). So don’t be thrown by the truffle color or white ink, those are just an illusion. An illuuuuusiiiooon.
We’re going to be placing the order ON JANUARY 4th. If you want a hoodie you must FIRST FINALIZE PAYMENT. We will NOT have any overstock. They are $40 a piece. Come and get ‘em.
I’m so seriously now, folks; how badass is this thing? It’s at least as badass as this shark-bear…

"The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

If you’re as flexible as a sheet of glass then you may be interested in attending and getting yourself a bit unglued. This is open to all and the gym will still be available for open gym shenanigans as per usual.
