Nordstrom is selling “mud-stained” jeans to the tune of $425.
They’re called the “Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans” and come with some sort of fake mud substance caked all over them. (It’s not clear what that substance is.) The knees, pockets and crotch of the jeans appear bear most of the faux brown muck.
And as CNN discovered, “the dirt does not wash out, because it’s actually not real dirt.”
The jeans were designed by PRSP and are sold on Nordstrom’s website, which describes them this way:
Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.
A few people with jobs that involve getting “down and dirty” are pretty miffed.
Among them is Mike Rowe, the former host of TV’s “Dirty Jobs,” who channeled his befuddled anger in a Facebook post that’s been shared more than 13,500 times and liked more than 31,000 times as of Wednesday morning.
“This morning, for your consideration, I offer further proof that our country’s war on work continues to rage in all corners of polite society,” he wrote of the jeans. “Finally — a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job … made for people who don’t.”
“But forget the jeans themselves for a moment, and their price, and look again at the actual description,” Rowe wrote. “‘Rugged Americana’ is now synonymous with a ‘caked-on, muddy coating.’ Not real mud. Fake mud. Something to foster the illusion of work. The illusion of effort. Or perhaps, for those who actually buy them, the illusion of sanity.”
He added later in the post, “The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans aren’t pants. They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic — not iconic.”
I was sooooooooo mad when I read about this story while I was in the bathroom at the gym yesterday because it meant I was too late. I had to go to work immediately after, so I wouldn't be able to write about this when it was still hot on the internet streets, but damnit even after half a day I'm giving my spin.
I've definitely made some decisions in my life that would warrant me be called "an ass hole". I don't think I am one, but I can understand why I've been called one many a time. Stealing your friend's girlfriend is definitely a real ass hole move. I can put my hand up on that one. But at least I can sleep at night knowing I'm not the ass hole who thought it was a good idea to sell jeans with fake mud for the reasonable price of $425, or the even bigger ass hole that decides to buy them. These are the people we as Americans should be protesting.
Am I just out of the loop because I don't have a full time job and a disposable income? Is this what it's like when you have some money to blow? Do people just blow hundreds of dollars on jeans that make it look like you work as a logger? Will this be something I can't understand until then?
For society's sake, I sure hope not.
Just think about this for a second.
Someone thought of this, then pitched it, then had it approved, then had it put into production, and now it is actually being sold. Along the line nobody stopped and thought "maybe this is a bad idea".
Nobody said anything, just like with Hannah Baker.
Maybe if one person said something she'd still be alive, and maybe this crime against humanity this wouldn't have seen the light of day. Although knowing how companies work they are probably just trying to create some buzz by creating this ridiculous product, which worked. I bet Nordstorm counted yesterday as a win. People like me are writing about them now.
I just don't get it at all. I know I'm a broke joke, but are there really people out there who would spend $425 to look like they work outside, when they actually don't? Like who is the target demographic here? The people who spend $300 on a ripped t-shirt from Kanye? How people will spend that much money on garbage to look "cool" blows my mind. Yeahhh, we're the ones who just don't get it. All I know is if I was dropping rent checks on clothes, they would not be ones that look like you could get at Savers, the back of some random pick up or find in a dumpster.
This shit is like stolen valor for the working class and I do not like it one bit. As someone who has many friends who work blue-collar jobs this makes me mad for them. You're being a working class poser. That's an absolutely disgusting thing to actually think about. People so rich, they can pretend to work hard.
I just don't understand the logic of someone wanting to buy these. Talk about being a sheep. It must just be rich ass holes that want to have them just to say they spent $425 on muddy jeans. At least I can kind of understand that. But for "average" people, why would you voluntarily want muddy jeans? That blows my mind too. Is Nordstrom going to start selling fake grease stained t-shirts for $275 and fake skidmark boxers for $105 as well?
Plus I feel like fake muddy jeans would be such a fucking hassle. How do you wash them? I'm sure they say the fake mud doesn't come off, but I feel like after a few washes these will ruin a load of laundry. Also I feel like they'd be uncomfortable. Like have you ever had wet jeans? It's the worst. I can't imagine fake mud feels fantastic either.
I don't know, maybe I'm in the wrong here but I don't think I am. I don't know a lot of things. But I do know this, if one day you decide "You know what, I'd like pair of these jeans" That YOU ARE AN ASS HOLE.
P.S. This is v funny to me.

If you think Brad Stevens is the major reason that the Celtics are struggling or are crazy enough to think he should get fired then you need to get your head checked. I don't know the inner workings of basketball like I do with football or even baseball so forgive me for being almost all opinion based on this blog, but this topic has been driving bananas. I honestly don't even think Brad Stevens 2-10 playoff record matters (yet).
Of course Brad Stevens deserves some blame. His #1 seed Celtics have been embarrassed by the Chicago Bulls. A team that looked like they would miss the playoffs entirely. But now that the Celtics are down 2-0 to the 8 seeded 41-41 Chicago Bulls after getting blown out last night 111-97 everybody is talking about how coach Brad Stevens is now 2-10 in the playoffs. Thinking that he's the issue. That now he's all of a sudden not a good coach.
Look I'm pissed at the C's too, believe me. While I didn't have extremely high hopes going into the playoffs, I thought they'd fucking win a series. This will be a horrible look for the franchise should they not comeback. They are looking like the frauds many thought they were. But I think numbers 100% can lie and be manipulated.
This situation is a prime example of that.
Yes, Brad Stevens is 2-10 in the playoffs. That is a fact, there's no denying that. As Bill Parcels used to say "You are what your record says you are" and Brad Stevens IS 2-10 in the playoffs. But I believe it is incredibly unfair to just say that and think it tells the whole story. Getting mad Brad Stevens for being 2-10 in the playoffs with these Celtics teams is like getting mad at like some nerd who won a contest on twitter to go on a "date" with a super model because he didn't sleep with her. No shit he didn't. It wasn't even a real date. He never had a chance going in.
You need to look at expectations vs the outcome. If the Celtics were perennially winning 55+ games every season with multiple all stars and were losing in the first round then, yeah I'd say blame the coach. I'm a huge blame the coach guy when it's the right move. That's why I despise John Farrell, despite the fact he technically won a World Series. If you have talent and are winning close to 60 games a year and can't get out of the first round, then yeah be heated at the coach and think it's his fault. But that's not the case, these were not great teams or in some cases even good teams.
In the 2014-15 season, Steven's 2nd with the Celtics. He led a team that was at one point 16-30 to a 40-42 finish. They went 6-0 run to end the year to even make the playoffs. I know a lot of people were mad they didn't tank, but I think it helped lead to the development of a lot of players who are still on the team today. They entered the playoffs BELOW .500 as the 7 seed in the East and got the pleasure of going against Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers who would go on to lose in the NBA Finals in 6 games.
That team had no business being in the playoffs talent wise, but because of Brad Stevens and how they performed after the Rondo trade, they were able to make the playoffs in the first place. That team had zero chance against Cleveland. I'd rather bet my money on a snowball surviving in hell. Idk what the series odds were but I'd guess Celtics to win would be over +1000. Absolute best case scenario would've been Cavs in 5. So they got swept by a superior talented team? Boo who. Getting swept in that series should not be held against him, that's ridiculous to me. The accomplishment of leading that team their outweighs the playoff result to me in that situation.
As much as I hate Lebron (I REALLY hate Lebron), even I can admit using his losing record in the Finals to bash him is sometimes unfair. In 2007 he pretty much single-handled brought a horrible team (by eventual conference champions standards) to the Finals where they were swept by a far superior Spurs team in the middle of their dynasty. Like hold the 2011 Heat loss against him 100 out of 100 times. They should've won that series. You can blame Lebron and his 8 points in four there. But same cannot be said for the 2007 Cavs. But each Finals loss counts the same in the record books. I'm just saying losing in situations that you weren't even expected to make it to should not be seen as a negative. Like do people talk shit about the 2007 Colorado Rockies for getting swept in the World Series?
Then in the 2015-16 season the Celtics finished with 48 wins and were the 5 seed. They were bounced in 6 by the Hawks. If you want to say they should've beaten them, whatever I can see either side. It was definitely a winnable series, but after losing a heartbreaker in game one and a blow out in game two they were able to bounce back and tie the series before dropping the final two games. But that team did not have championship aspirations. Yeah it would've been nice to win a round, but again, I think a lot of people believe that team overachieved.
Then this year the Celtics were the 1 seed in the East. 53 wins, which for a 1 seed is relatively low to begin with. But they are not your normal 1 seed. Many analytical people claimed they were one of the worst 1 seeds of all time. I agreed even before this series started. They rely way too much on a 5 foot 9 point guard, have no legit second option and may be the worst rebounding team of all time. I can't think of too many other times in the history of any sport, not just the NBA where going into the playoffs most people thought the 1 seed had little to no chance to make it to it's league's championship round. It'd be the most shocking 1 seed to make the Finals maybe ever.
Then the draw the Celtics got couldn't have been worse, The Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have been kind of a mess all season long, but talent wise, at least with starters, you could argue the Bulls are better. They definitely have the best player on the court in Jimmy Butler. They also are not your normal 8 seed. I think going into the season many people thought the Bulls would be closer to a 50 win team and somewhere in the middle of the East pack. Between the Celtics overachieving and Bulls underachieving I'd argue this 1-8 match up is realistically more like a 3-6. Now again, I'm angry at the Celtics too, and believe they should be able to at least win a playoff series with this team, but game 1 after the death of Isaiah Thomas' sister going in felt like a game they may end up losing because of the emotional toll on their star point guard. Which ended up being the outcome. As for last night, it was just horrible, stupid shots and it seemed like they just gave up. They are shook, they are rattled. This is where they need Brad Stevens. But from an X's and O's standpoint, there's not much he can do about a small team being horrible on the glass.
If you want to blame anybody, blame Danny Ainge for standing pat at the trade deadline. I get it this team has a lot of assets for a potentially very bright future that they don't want to waste in a rental deal, but the fact that they did not address their lack of rebounding was astounding. They basically conceded the East to the Cavs by not adding a guy. Even if they added someone they'd still be underdogs, but it would've bridged the gap. I'm not saying they had to add Paul George or Jimmy Butler, but they should've done something. There are plenty of expendable players on this roster and draft capital that could've been moved to do something, literally anything.
The major problem is how this team is built. They needed heroic efforts by Isaiah night after night. If he didn't score close to 30, the Celtics were probably fucked. His game is all about getting the hole or free throw line. In the playoffs games are officiating differently and some of those calls don't go your way that would in the regular season. Also tell me who the Celtics second option is? I'll wait. They don't have one. It's a team of nice role players who grind and get the most of their talents, but that's the thing there isn't much talent. You can win a championship with guys like Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder on your team, but they can't be who you are relying on night after night. They have no knock down shooters, no bigs who have heart down low. It's a team of defensive minded guards who can't shoot and stretch 4's who can't rebound and have little to no inside game. Shocker it's working when they give up 100 offensive rebound and second chances a game. Sure you can play great defense, but if you're giving teams 2nd, 3rd or even 4th tries on a single possession, pros are gonna score eventually.
Now the Celtics head to Chicago in a situation where I think realistically it's two must win games. For the C's to have any chance I think they need to go back to Boston tied 2-2. However given how this series has looked, they might not even get back to Boston at all. I just hope people can understand that what Brad Stevens has done with these teams is like a chef cooking a 5 star meal with bologna and ramen noodles.
Tom Brady at the last minute backed out of the Patriots White House trip. However do not let horribly misleading, clickbait titles of posts like this fool you:
Unreal to link the two together there. Hernandez and Brady haven't been teammates for four full seasons. Makes it seem like Brady is so shook up from Hernandez that he pulled out of the White House visit because of it. When in reality I bet deep down I bet Brady hates Hernandez' guts. I wouldn't be shocked if he was happy about it. We've seen how quickly Brady will totally write off a receiver and lose faith after a single drop. Pretty much shun them off the team. It's why guys like Aaron Dobson didn't make it. I'd imagine losing one of your most trusted targets to a murder conviction would probably warrant some hate. I bet Brady's first thought was "good riddance".
But in all seriousness, this move seems like it's all about his mother, Galynn who has been battling "illness". I don't know why they keep calling it "illness" instead of cancer, kind of weird IMO. It's obviously cancer. Bandana was a dead giveaway. I get the privacy thing, but I feel like that makes it a bigger deal than just being truthful. By leaving it open ended I feel like that does more harm than good, leaves people wanting to know more, and possibly going to great lengths to find out. Idk, I obviously support TB12 no matter what, just seems very odd to me.
Regardless, it just sucks that Brady isn't going to be there because I'm sure the Brady/Trump haters on social media will have a field day making shitty jokes. Especially when it's seemingly about his mom. Most people can agree that is off limits. However given the Brady-Trump relationship something pretty serious must've happened with her to stop Tommy from going. Only 34 of a possible 53 players are in attendance. I feel like that is a crazy low number. Bad look for Donald (even if it truly is because of his mom) to have the one guy who seemingly supported him not be able to make it. With how shit is going politically, I wouldn't be shocked if the tradition of champions visiting the White House dying. Like how many guys on the Cavs or Warriors do you think would show up? Over/under 2.5
I'm just bummed we're gonna get robbed of another opportunity for a snapshot like this one
Idk why but this picture always make me chuckle. I think it's just from how they're standing and the weird hand placement by Brady. Just looks so awkward. Luckily Trump always makes time for golf so I'm sure they'll be able to hit the links a few times this summer and get another pic.
P.S. Absolutely love how Brady knows he'll be back on the South Lawn Soon. He's right! The only question is how many more times? Again I'll set the over/under at 2.5.
Aaron Hernandez, latest member of the 27 club.
I don't even know where to begin, so I'll start by talking about my favorite subject, myself.
I was none too pleased this morning to be awoken from my slumber much earlier than expected by a barrage of texts. I usually have my phone on do not disturb but I must've hit it off by mistake. Talk about the wrong day to do that. The one day my phone blows up. I figured that my group chat had started earlier today than usual or something. It did, but for reasons I would've never expected.
I was shocked to find out that former Patriots Tight End, Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in a Massachusetts prison this morning. You know what.... also former University of Florida Tight End. I feel like they get out of a lot of shit from that, but he played just as long for the Gators as he did for the Pats. Yet they take all the brunt of the fact that he was a murderer. Not fair! The 2008 Gators were a who's who of bad guys.
My immediate thought was shock, I just didn't see it coming. I can honestly say I did not expect to wake up to this news. Didn't think the Bristol Pistol was a suicide guy. I mean the immediate question everybody must have now is did he watch 13 Reasons Why in Jail? Are a box of tapes going to show up a 1 Patriot Place?
I find the timing v odd considering how he just was found "not guilty" from a 2012 double-murder five days ago. You'd think he'd be happy. I mean, I guess as happy as a lifer without the possibility of parole could be. But you'd think he'd be happier.
Many (including myself) are wondering about the timing of this. Hernandez kills himself the same day as the Patriots are scheduled to be honored at the White House for winning their 2nd Super Bowl since his release. Could it be a coincidence or what sent him over the ledge?
A major storyline on tv, the radio and social media so far has been the debate on whether or not this is sad and how to treat Hernandez. You have the "this man was a father, a girl just lost her father" camp. Then there is the "good riddance, this guy was a murderer" camp. Obviously there are other sides you can take, it's not that black or white, but if there were two major theme umbrellas for the takes to fall under, it'd be those. In my opinion it is kind of disgusting how much people in sports media are trying to humanize this guy and seemingly place blame everywhere else but on Hernandez.
Look, I was the biggest Aaron Hernandez fan there was. I loved watching him at Florida on those Tebow teams. This was back when I was in high school, still playing football and absolutely obsessed with those Gator teams. I didn't just start liking Tim Tebow during Tebowmania, he had been my guy for a while. Hernandez was one of his primary targets. I loved watching them play. Then when he declared early for the NFL, Hernandez went to my favorite professional team, the New England Patriots. I was excited they got such a talent in the 4th round and he was a Florida guy. I was also kind of surprised by his drafting. I can remember questioning the Patriots drafting TWO tight ends. I can remember saying "What are they thinking drafting two tight ends?". Well it turned out to be Rob Gronkowski and an Aaron Hernandez, who in their brief time healthy together took the NFL by storm. In my defense before that tight ends were not nearly as important in the NFL as they are now. Could've been the greatest combo of all time. Now a few years later Hernandez is dead. It's insane how quickly everything changed. Five years ago he caught a touchdown in the Super Bowl.
But the dude is a fucking murderer, remember? HE made the decision to kill at least one person. It's not like he just died of cancer. I don't care that his dad died, I don't care that he might of been gay, I don't care about any of it. Don't be a murder. it's really not very hard. Most people can do that. It's a tragedy in the sense of wasted talent, and wasted life but I don't feel bad for Aaron Hernandez. He's the one who had it all and decided to throw it all away. I feel bad for the people like myself who believed in him.
I'm honestly surprised he didn't kill himself earlier (even though I said I was shocked by the news). I just feel like given how high his highs were (both on and off the football field) and how absolutely lows his lows were that at the very least this is one move by Hernandez I can truly understand. I don't blame him for killing himself. Knowing how badly he fucked his entire life up, if I was in his shoes I'd probably do the same.
I'm sure I'll talk about this more in the coming days, but it's been a pretty big news morning in the sports world and I need to show my worth. Aaron Hernandez is dead at the age of 27. Never thought I would have said.
P.S. Is it wrong that all I can think about his how much this is taking the Celtics off the hook in Boston media today? I mean talk about totally dodging a bullet. I'm sure they still will get talked about a little, but this totally over shadows them in the media. Definitely no longer the lead on sports talk radio. They just looked HORRIBLE last night and are down 2-0 after losing the first two games of the series at home TO THE 8 SEED. Ik some people were questioning whether Hernandez actually killed himself or was killed in prison and had it set to look like a suicide. I feel like at the very least we need to see if Danny Ainge has an alibi. Although if he wasn't willing to add a rebounder at the break to help his team, I doubt he'd go through all the trouble of staging a suicide to help them. Although it would be a great way to get back in the good graces of fans.
Double P.S. I was at Aaron Hernandez' final game, the 2012 season's AFC Championship Game. Fucking horrible game.
Regardless if you love it, hate it, or never heard of it, 13 Reasons Why is currently the hottest thing on Netflix. Don't worry no spoilers here (okay, maybe a few), just a minor logistics issue I have with the show that was pretty much all I can focus on while I was watching.
The series based on a novel of the same name premiered on March 31st to generally good reviews. IMDB gave it a 9/10 which is good enough for me. Heck, I'll check out any 9/10! LOL
Apparently I'm not the only person who felt that way because since its first week 13 Reasons Why was tweeted about more than any other Netflix show in history.
I'm not an analytics guy, but that seems like a pretty big deal.
I'd say it at the very least shows the show's popularity. Chasing Cameron (which I've never heard of) had over 1.3 million tweets one week post premiere which was the previous record. 13 Reasons Why almost tripled it with nearly 3.6 million tweets.
Given how heavy the subject matter of the show is (it touches on basically everything that can go wrong in life) and how close it may hit to home for some, 13 Reasons Why has generated a ton of buzz online. People want to talk about it. It's a polarizing show. There's a ton of fan theories and all that other bullshit online but that's not why I'm writing this.
In today's society where everything has to become "a thing", of course there are many people upset with the way this show depicts suicide, bullying, homophobia, rape, violence and the other bright and cheery subject matters that litter the show. I'm actually fine with what they did. None of that really bothered me tbh. Yeah it's uncomfortable at times to watch, but those topics are supposed to be uncomfortable. Watching and talking about rape and suicide should make you uncomfortable. I'd be worried if it didn't. Doesn't mean we shouldn't talk about it. Maybe this show helped save lives? We need to talk about uncomfortable topics more to deal with them and try to fix them.
My biggest and really only complaint with stuff like that is the scene where they show Hannah kill herself (I promise you that's not a spoiler, the entire show is about her killing herself) but that's more so just because I have a weak stomach.
I just can't do cutting of the wrists or throat. I swear I can fucking feeling that shit happening to me when I watch it. I just can't do it. Like my throat hurts just thinking about that video of the old Sabres goalie who got his throat slashed by a skate. I tried to watch when Hannah ultimately ended her life and was about to vomit.
That is not hyperbole.
Your boy was about 85% of the way to full chunks. I felt it coming. If I didn't turn away my bed was about to look like the Exorcist.
Overall, I think in 13 Reasons Why they do a pretty good job depicting a lot of real life issues. Liberty High could be any high school in any town in America. Except for one glaring problem in my eyes. When watching the show there was one thing I had a huge issue with. More than the rape, more than the actual showing of wrist slashing, more than trying to get over the fact that Boobie Miles was now a High School Counselor.
Before I get into it I gotta say I did have issues with the casting of Zach Dempsey.
You're really trying to convince me this 6 foot 7 dude who looks like he's about 30 is a JUNIOR in high school? Meaning he's 17 at the very oldest, like last year he couldn't go to rated R movies without his mom.
But I can get over that. I get it, I can play along and not let it ruin the show for me. I know a lot of times in tv and movies they'll have much older actors who can get away with playing teens. I'm pretty sure buzzfeed's whole platform is making lists of shit like that, how someone in Clueless was like 35, but I digress.
The biggest issue I had was with all the tattoos students had, not because I'm anti-tattoo or anything. But because I have a brain and felt it was very unrealistic AF. You can get a lot by me, but not this. How someone in production didn't think about this blows my mind.
I went to high school not that long ago, and have worked in multiple high schools. Let me tell you. I've seen maybe a handful of tattoos on high schoolers. It's VERY rare. Then these kids who are supposed to be 17 look like they're in the Hell's Angels.
Not only are minors not legally allowed to get tattoos in most states, but it's also pretty fucking expensive. Wheres this money coming from? When I was in high school I washed dishes and made less than $8 an hour. Are we expecting high schoolers to foot the bill? I sub in a high school now and if a student has a 10 spot on there person they're basically Warren Buffett. They're all broke.
Let's take a look at Justin.
This kid is supposed to be a junior in high school right? Not once in the show do they talk about him having a job. They could've filled this plot hole in 2 seconds by just saying something like "oh I can't make it, I have to go to work" at any point in the show and at least now we're thinking, "okay this kid has some sort of way to pay for all this ink".
But they do not.
What we do know is that Justin plays basketball. So between that and letting his friend rape his girlfriend, it doesn't seem like Justin has a ton of time to work to afford paying for tattoos.
Then maybe you're thinking, "Well Doz, what about his parents? Couldn't they have money?" To avoid any further spoilers, let's just say Justin does not have the greatest homelife. So no, I don't think they paid for him to get inked TF up. Although since he has such shitty parents, they could've given him legal permission. That wouldn't shock me.
Considering how Bryce basically takes care of him. Maybe he paid for the tattoos? Still this kid is not only a minor, but he is broke. I'd think he'd rather use any money offered on things like, I don't know food or clothes. But then again I'm not a 17 year old anymore, I have a brain. If I was broke (I am, venmo me) and was offered money from a friend, I would not be using it on a fucking barbed wire tattoo. I have student loans, bruh.
It's cool that Bryce helps out his friend with a place to crash at times, but there's a big difference between helping your friend out, and funding his tattoos. No matter how rich they are, I doubt Bryce's parents are just like sure, I'd love to pay for your friend to get some really ugly, lame, outdated tattoos.
People forget that tattoos aren't cheap. Anybody with full-sleeves will tell you that not only does it take hours, if not days to complete, but it's also expensive AF. An hour of tattooing can cost over $100 depending on where you go. Usually more. I just googled it and a decent full-sleeve tattoo will set you back at least a few grand.
Which leads me Skye Miller.
We don't know a ton about Skye except for that fact that she used to be a lot closer to Clay and is also a barista at the local coffee shop "Monet's" where seemingly everybody in town is always at.
Skye is also a junior in high school, and to her defense, at least she is working. However as a barista in a coffee shop who is supposed to be like 17, you're making what? $11 an hour absolute best case scenario? Maybe if you've worked your way up since you got the job as a freshmen? Let's say she's working 20 hours a week. Still doesn't seem like enough to pay for what seems like thousands of dollars of ink.
Also does this girl not have parents? I get it, it's 2017 and people want to let their kids do whatever the fuck they want. But I have a hard time believing anybody would let their daughter look like this at 17. How can you let your daughter, who is in high school cover herself in tattoos before she's 18? I feel like every parent in America plays the "not under my roof" / "Not until your 18" card. Do her parents not know about that card? I just don't understand it. You're just doing such a disservice as a parent. You basically just gave her the okay to drop out of high school the very minute you said it was okay to get a fucking alligator neck tattoo.
Then there's Bryce.
Again, another guy who's like 30 pretending to be in high school. Let's overlook that as well. At least with this ass hole could be 18 since he's a senior. Fuck Bryce though.
Finally Tony, probably my favorite character on the show.
Tony is tatted the fuck up. He also mentions that he's Catholic, and based off the fact that he's also Mexican and has good parents, I'm going to assume he's practicing. I'm going to guess that his religious Mexican parents would not be too pleased with the fact that their son is tatted. So they probably would not be okay with paying for it. Tony also spends a ton of time working on his old Mustang, I would think that all his money goes into that.
So that is my major problem with 13 Reasons Why
WHERE ARE THESE TATTOOS COMING FROM??
Maybe Terrelle Pryor could lend a helping hand here, but to say it has puzzled me would be an understatement. I actually enjoyed this show a lot, but I mean come on? It's high school. Not prison. If you're not going to have 16 year olds in the show that's fine, but maybe remember that most high schoolers don't have neck tattoos? Idk. That's just my two cents.
