Publish | Today For Tomorrow.
Mike Shinoda, Publisher.
Last week a few of us from Publish were invited to a private concert for the X Games at Club Nokia in Los Angeles thanks to our friends Mike Shinoda and Linkin Park. In front of a thousand fans they rocked out with their past chart toppers and then went into their 5th album titled “Living Things” that topped the Billboard charts this week. Mike was seen sporting our “Sullivan” short sleeve chambray shirt for the performance. The whole set was also streamed live onto Myspace for everyone to see. Congrats to these guys on everything they’ve accomplished and check out their new album in stores now.
The Sullivan shirt as well as the rest of our Summer 2012 collection is available now at our Publish shop.
We’re bringing back Good Fit Fridays! This week with the help of talented Gilbere Forte, we bring you the Dossey short sleeve woven in grey. Lined with the all-over snakeskin print, the Dossey also comes with a 2-button side slit, detailed chest pocket and 3-D quill embroidery. The Dossey shirt and the rest of the “Good Moods” collection is available now at The Publish Shop and Publish retailers worldwide.
Check back next week for our newest look!
Two thumbs up.
Over the weekend I got the chance to catch a great new film directed by Wes Anderson called Moonrise Kingdom. The film is based in 1965 and is about a young boy and girl who fall in love and decide to run away together. Throwing parents and scout leaders into panic, an irregular search party is sent out to find the couple. With an all-star cast list including Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton you can just anticipate greatness to happen. In typical Wes Anderson fashion, the cast wardrobe is amazing. Every detail on each character is on point. The coolest details are the patches on all the scouts’ gear. They are randomly highlighted throughout the film.
Overall, I definitely recommend going to see this movie. It hits every genre to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone.

“Brand New In Box”
PUBLISHED GOODS: BNIB: LOS ANGELES
It was a beautiful day in sunny California and I got a chance to hangout with the storeowners of BNIB Alex and Jamie as well as their dogs Obey and Sis. I sat them down for a little Q&A. Alex and Jamie recently purchased an old truck and turned it into the first mobile shoe slangin machine. This crafty concept allows them to sell their products anywhere they go. You may have spotted them at the Well-Connected sale in DTLA this past March. The truck definitely stirred up a lot of conversation!

Today’s track is by Marvin Gaye “Ain’t that peculiar” remixed by Oddisee, enough said!
Quoted by our very own, Plann.B, “Oddisee is a prolific producer, eloquent emcee, and purveyor of all things fresh…” – Without a doubt, one of the best in the business.
The oh-so-gorgeous Kate Upton was photographed by the iconic Terry Richardson. So many things I want to say about Kate, but you’re probably already thinking them. Also, posted below these photos is a video of Ms. Upton cat daddy-ing.
Current status: drooling.
This past Saturday, we had some very special guests drop by the Publish offices to pay us a visit. The homies Ryan and Asad (masterminds behind LA’s Soul Slam and Wonderfull events) stopped by with none other than the man of the hour himself, superproducer and world-renowned party igniter, DJ Spinna. Fresh off a flight from LAX (and a gig the night before at SoHo’s Submercer), Spinna was most definitely on his “no-sleep-swag” as he dug through the crates. Only this time, he was digging for fits rather than wax…and the crates were just cardboard boxes, but work with us here.
After getting laced with some pieces that he picked out, he had to swing over to the hotel for a few brief hours of R&R before taking the stage at The Echoplex for Soul Slam 8. The night was a massive success (as it always tends to be), with over a thousand people packed inside, dancing and sweating to the better part of Prince & MJ’s discographies, blended and presented as only Spinna can do it.
Keep up with DJ Spinna on www.djspinna.com and make sure to follow Footlong Development on Twitter at @FootlongEvents.
