Unplug from the matrix

Last night on a wild spur of the moment idea,I decided to go out dancing with my wife.No big deal right,well it was a big deal,it had been month’s since we last unplugged from the matrix to unwind and just enjoy one another’s company without the smart phones,facebook,instagram,pinterest.We danced for like 3 full hours,wow it was great just moving and seeing the look of pure pleasure in her eyes.The music could have been a bit better in my opinion,but do you know what it didn’t matter as we moved as one and lived in those moments not worrying about anything else in the world.
Just as in the morning I will stop and look Heavenward and enjoy the sunrise or spectacular skyline for a moment and have my coffee.When I get out of my car and look skyward and gaze at the stars that line the sky,sometimes even sit with a cold drink and watch the fireflys in the empty lot next door.Those moments are Instagram moments in my mind,living in that moment just enjoying that one thing.
We are being trained to not live in those moments,to hashtag it and not truly immerse ourselves in those fleeting instances.
Which brings me back to the night of dancing,glimpsing around the dance floor seeing so many people awkwardly standing around talking and watching us dancing in the corner.While they text,drink,and update statuses,and never truly letting go and living in the moment,,,,dance like no ones looking,sing like no ones listening,I’m not sure how to fully explain those feelings at those moment and throw cautions and inhibitions to the wind and fully immerse yourself in life ,and enjoy..

Worst Blogger Online

Ya like that title,kind of an attention grabber but not far from the truth! Okay well maybe I’m not the worst blogger,I could add more content regularly.Here we are the end of the year holidays seasons,updating the blog once again.I apologize for the lack of posts here,as I just completed a lifestyle shift from one field of employment to one a lot closer to my aspirations in life.As some who have followed our journey here with SLO MO know the clothing brand has always been a big dream of mine/ours the crews past and present.Working a full time gig and grinding on the side to bring this to fruition…..
Working full time and side grinding kinda gave me excuses to not post as much on the blog and more on the Facebook and Instagram sites.Also cause they’re more convenient to post content on a cell phone,while not having the tablet handy.So my blog postings have been few and far between! Once again gaining some forward momentum after picking up the ball.
As I am still learning this blog thing out I didn’t respond to a lot of remarks and messages about the posts.As a matter of fact a ton were deleted by yours truly,trying to sort the good ones from the spam at the time was mind numbing. I did read almost every one sent,so with that said I will answer some of the questions we received :
-A lot of problems with the blog uploading on Internet explorer and others,sometimes words running off the screen…..I will be researching this.
-Problems with the RSS not working,will be researching.
-Our fault as we have not set up email subscriptions or e/newsletters
-Others using WP having been hacked,yes we had the same issue here ie I deleted a ton of comments cause was not sure if one had been used to hack the blog.
-Plagiarism of my articles by others on the web,I mean if you use one of my posts please give me a little credit.
-None of my post topics were paid for by any groups,companies or others that were mentioned in the articles.I wrote about them because they either inspired or taught me something or just the experience was just that good.
-And no we haven’t started a Twitter account as of yet,I could see all my blunders fueling some major laughter.
And to get back to what matters the most,you the readers.Thank you for all the comments both good and others.Thank you for visiting the blog and referring it to others…almost forgot you can use the info laid out here in your groups and classes,just remember pass on our name. And with that I bid thee goodnight and stay warm as it is about 28 degrees fahrenheit here…..

 

And before I forgetĀ  Happy 242 years Marines,and don’t forget those who had,are,and will be serving in the future thank you for your service to our country and for the freedoms we enjoy due to your sacrifices.Semper Fidelis!

Summer time

Here we go starting the summer of 2016 with some wicked good weather.Been working the full time job like crazy 12 hour days,5 sometimes 6 days a week.But it has been said if you want something,or to go somewhere you got to get off your a$$ and hustle.Hustle and grinding here at SLO MO as you know we now have Ladies t-shirts available as well as the existing unisex tees.
So who’s gonna be the first to rock SLO MO on their block,stop in the store and place an order for your summer tees.When you get your t-shirts take a picture wearing it at your favorite summer hang outs.Or better yet at the welcome sign of where your from,I’ll use them as part of the blog maybe even use it as advertisement,or look book.
I will start printing up some new designs here very soon,we will post some pics of some prints we’ve done in the past.Plus some pics of new ideas to come.So by buying a t-shirt you’re supporting a small veteran owned business,and showing some love for SLO MO.

Grind and Shine

Here we are another Massachusetts minute gone by, a new year, month, week, day, moment. Time flying by, grinding, working, drawing, finishing paintings, and catching up on the writing…..
Firstly I would like to thank everyone that has read and commented on the blog posts. I slacked on the posting, but I did try and read all the comments. I hate dropping the ball, but it does inevitably happen, so now that I’ve picked it up once again its time to Grind and SHINE..
Had a couple of minor setbacks in 2015,camera issues so lost alot of pictures from the Carlisle Import and Kit Car show, and other events. Working alot of overtime at the full time job and a shift change…. So not much effort had been put into SLO MO.
So started off the New year okay, the Lunar new year, year of the fire monkey…. Definitely getting better. Sold a couple of t-shirts and a hat locally, of course feeling good about that…. That means more people repping SLO MO.
Now don’t forget to support your local small businesses, no matter if it’s a friend’s or family members. These are the businesses that count on you the customers.
Okay now that I have winded myself writing this I hope you all get the point… If you want to get somewhere, or something get on your Grind and hustle, hustle, hustle, did I mention hustle……..
SLO MO not just a name but a way of life

Put things here aside for a minute or so,got caught up in things and just bought a house so things have been hectic.Now that things have slowed down a bit I can pick up the ball and run with it,got a couple of write ups about a couple of events I attended over the summer and a couple of small ones also.We all seemed to have survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday,hopefully all went well with everyone’s holiday and shopping expeditions after.
Well thats all for now and I will be posting a little more regularly.

13 Years After

Here we are once again September.11,2014,thirteen years after the fall of the Twin Towers.A day that will live on in infamy,where a small group of people decided to attack American soil.Something that has not happened since Pearl Harbor.
May all those who perished and fought for our beliefs in Freedom be remembered with a heavy heart,and the belief that our future generations shall be free and strive to keep our freedoms and liberties intact.
So thirteen years after and the memories are as fresh as the day it all happened,remember just as the World wars seem to have faded from some memories.Do not let these happenings fade into a worldview of complacency.
Be forever vigilant……
