Not acceptable, Mr. andyman.

You might have to go bare-chested if you can't sort this out.

This week I have been mostly been learning how to hem trousers by hand.

I always thought you ideally needed a sewing machine and it would be hard and look shitty if you were not a old wizened master tailor with decades upon decades of experience. But no! I wish I'd learned this twenty years ago. Only requirements are patience and precision finger control, both things that musicians should already have to a degree.

I sort of figured things out myself but here's a great guide that would have helped me out six pairs back:

Christ it feels good to have your hems dialled in to the mm.

this sounds like a pretty fucken good idea squire.

I have psoriasis.

I live in a dry sub-zero snow tundra.

The worst possible fucking conditions for psoriasis.

You can have your laughs but I use castor oil. It works. No smell. I have some coal tar but that shit leaves me smelling suspiciously inhumane. Are they building a new road near here oh it's just this pongy cunt standing next to me

On the bath/dry skin axis, I've recently started squirting a few drops of baby oil into the bath while it is filling.

Showering/bathing in not hot water does wonders for dry skin. Doesn't even have to be cold, just as cold as you can stand it.

Currently living for charcoal body wash.

I was inundated with Brickell ads and finally decided to pull the trigger on their free sample kit, and I've got to tell you that it's A LOT of substantially-sized samples. I wishes I could afford to fill my cabinet with most of their wares. Their face scrub is the fucking bomb--jojoba beads, pumice, aloe, avocado butter...insanely invigorating. Shit's free yo.

I believe it's OK to dry denim on occasion. I also don't think it shrinks each time, but am not entirely sure about it. I'm tall and have difficulty finding jeans that fit and last. The fancier brands usually do me well, and I tend to take meticulous care of them tho. YMMV!


Denim doesn't shrink after every wash. Anyone who thinks that is getting fatter after every wash.


They don't shrink so much as they go back to their original size. I wear jeans probably 5 times between washings. They start out a little too tight and end up a little too loose. Wash (no dry) and the process starts over again.

be aware of using too much charcoal product as it strips nutrients from you during the detoxification process... your skin is an organ readily capable of absorbing vitamins... maybe take some epsom or dead sea mineral baths to reintroduce magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium into your system.
