imogene + willie, the selvedge denim darlings of the Nashville instagram hipster set, seems to be having some problems with their finances. Investors accuse the Eddmensons of using company money to “support a lavish lifestyle of personal indulgence” rather than “developing a wholesale business”.
In court papers, Celia Hughes, Imogene + Willie’s former chief financial officer, said the company’s accounting books contained many “red flags.”…She cited a $10,000 motorcycle, spa trips and home renovations such as a new bath, doors, furnishings and window treatments as examples of the Eddmensons’ mismanagement of company funds.
Matt Eddmenson’s personal instagram does feature a lot of motorcycles, so who knows. Anyway, apparently the latest financial statements show “61 percent of Imogene + Willie’s roughly $224,000 in bills are 90 days past due” and Robert Lamey and Paige Heid, the largest creditors of the company, are trying to force the company into chapter 11 bankruptcy ”using an involuntary petition”.
So maybe pretty soon Jordana and Bleubird will have to find a new brand of status jeans run by a new hipster couple they can glom onto and instagram tag.
This type of thing has been going on for a while with this instagram mom, so I’m not sure what she thought she was doing posting nudes of her daughter. But as she’s said in the past, she will post what she wants.
I never thought I would see the day.
After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week…Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets.
Evidently Gawker.com is dunzo, and the staffers are being dispersed to “other editorial roles, either at one of the other six sites or elsewhere within Univision”.
Lynette Young, apparently important and famous, is having a nice little “don’t you know who I am” huff on twitter.
Yes twitter, that bon mot graveyard for the 40 somethings who refuse to figure out snapchat, has denied her request for the Verified Badge that everyone on social media drools over. Despite having a whopping 14,000 followers and namedropping Biz Stone, Ms. Literally One Of The First was unable to get that ego validating blue checkmark. Can you believe this? Can nothing be done to right this injustice?
Eric Hites, the fat guy who said he would ride his bicycle across America but instead fiddlefarted around for a year before returning home, has announced that he and his little garden gnome wife are trying to produce a children’s book.
Age range will be for any range as you can read it to a toddler and they can enjoy the colorful pictures and the words are simple yet be good for a first Grader.
Instead of spending the past 30 days getting real jobs, going to fitness boot camp, or riding daily like he claimed, Eric has instead opted to grift money for a binding machine so he and his all-but-illiterate wife can ‘write’ a book for kids.
Of course they are also selling bike chain key rings because everybody wants a piece of the fat guy adventure!
Order a key-ring with chain from Fat guy’s bike to help with the journey and to be a part of the journey. Soon he will be leaving from Dallas, Texas to complete his journey across America. Be a part of it today by supporting the ride!
Hasn’t the internet been ‘supporting the ride’ for like, 18 months? How about Eric supporting his own ride now? Ya know, with an actual job?
Jennifer Mayers, the blogger who claims to be “Spreading Positivity through Jesus Christ”, is expressing confusion over why twitter is being so hateful towards her. After all, she’s just expressing her #truth.
And of course her blog is full of wonderful commentary about America and advice on how to not be killed by police like Alton Sterling.
This is why I do not associate with poor people or blacks. I treasure my life, and I simply refuse to put myself into these types of situations around people who have no regard for the law or the GODLY way of life.
I’m assuming this is all some kind of elaborate satire, so I’ll leave you with this #brave tweet.
Well ok then.
