DO THE THING.
Right now. Not tomorrow. Not someday. Right fucking now.
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow's for suckers. Today is the only thing we've got.
This year, I've taken my own advice, and I'm doing the thing.
I've always wanted a t-shirt line. It's been bouncing around in my head for YEARS. I never gave myself permission to pursue it until @stardustier came along a lit a fire under my ass. She told me to do the thing. Better yet, she told me it was something she wanted to do too. So we're doing the thing together.
We've launched our first line of shirts, a couple of hats and some hoodies. We figured out the fastest and easiest way to bring our ideas to market and got to fucking work on it. Seeing these shirts as they came in was like being a little kid on Xmas morning. To see your ideas become a physical thing and then to see other people buying and wearing that thing...it's an incredible high. No lie.
So I'm doing the thing. And I'm not stopping there. This weekend, Stardust and I designed two brand new art t-shirts featuring all new, never-seen art and designs. It's completely different from our first shirt line and I personally think it's the best thing I've ever put together.
But I'm going to be a huge fucking tease and not show it to you. Yet. Still working out a few details, but I will say that it takes FILTHLAMB to a whole new level and opens up a whole new market for us at the same time.
FILTHLAMB, as a business and a pursuit and a dream fulfilled has come in steps. It's a process. And I'm excited that through our photos, videos and essays that we we have, and continue to, share our journey as we take this thing from a mere offhand comment to a full fledge company, and all the crazy steps (and missteps) in between.
So what's your thing? What's the passion that drives you forward through the life you've been given? Are you doing it yet?
DO THE FUCKING THING.
