Hard Times

The subject of this fits well, as I started typing this…’Hard Times‘ by Cro-Mags kept ringing through my head. It’s funny that this follows an optimistic Spring-Must Haves list, but it goes without saying that something from both sides of the spectrum should be presented. Browsing through The Selvedge Yard, JP’s piece on the recession and San Quentin struck hard.

The truth is, if you are true to reality, you will prosper in one way or another, lad.” – Ian Hough

The period of time we are in now, especially for those engulfed in the apparel and restaurant industries, tries our will and courage to push through. Myself included in the thousands moving up and out from previous notches on our resume have found troubled waters.

For some people, it’s a hard trip through choosing to pay the rent or eat, but it usually pays off through hard work. Let’s make the best of it, and make sure to buy your buddy with no job a couple of beers. It’s kind of like helping him move, one day you will need the favor and guidance re-payed.
