Roots of a Radical

This last weekend, I found over 200 CDs in a storage place in my home office. Remember those? Compact discs? After looking through 4 CD cases and 4 towers of CDs, I was amazed with how much punk music I still had on hand. This week, I’m going to relive the days of 16-year-old-me and play some of the following albums:

Anybody else out there have punk rock-listening roots? I might be The Good Child, but I have always loved fast-paced and rebellious tunes.

UNKO x FFB at Centre


Yesterday, I dropped in at Centre, (my favorite boutique in Dallas, TX), to visit some of the most amazing locals in my city – Unkommon Kolor and Fur Face Boy. Unkommon Kolor and Fur Face Boy have been running their independent brands for about 3-4 years now and yesterday they released their first collaboration together.

It was dope to see the two brands doing it big for our city. It was also really Good hanging out and chatting with FFV (Fur Face Vy), other local brand owners (Sleepy DanHIJ Clothing, Loyal KNG) the Centre crew (mainly Kiddrae254), and local musicians (DJ SoberBlue and Picnictyme). Check out a few iPhone shots from the event, as well as some looks of Centre (and Atama), below:

What is the Good For?

It’s been about eight months since The Good Child began. Since The Beginning, I have sold a Good deal of merchandise around the United States. I’ve also been to a number of events and expos where I’ve sold tees to people living as far away as New Zealand, Australia, and Paris to name a few.

This has me wondering…what are you doing with your The Good Child t-shirt? Do you keep it wrapped up in its pristine, unique packaging? Do you fold it and stash it in a drawer with your other favorite graphic tees? If you wear it, what do you wear it with? What are you doing and where do you go when you wear The Good Child?

Now is your opportunity to share! Next time you put on The Good Child, snap a photo and send to info@officialgoodchild.com, “@” me on Twitter, or post on the Facebook page! You can see a small portion of people sporting The Good Child, here. I am going to start collecting all of the images you guys send in for something super rad.

*BONUS* If you happen to be doing the world some Good in your photo (a good deed of some sort), I’ll send you a special discount code!

Let the photo-taking begin! Thank you!

Kixpo 2011 Recap

I’m sitting here, halfway dressed, (wearing an In4mation “hi” fitted, nevertheless), still giddy about yesterday’s event – Kixpo.

Yesterday, I joined over 100 sneaker and streetwear vendors on the field of the Cowboys Stadium to represent some of the best in premium apparel. The Good Child vendor table was located right next to the center star on the Cowboys field – pretty dope! I was positioned next to Grpfly and Snapsteez – two brands I had been familiar with, but finally had the chance to meet up close and personal. Major shoutouts to Vernon and Avery (of Grpfly) and Cerrance (not Carrots, of Snapsteez).

I met a lot of new people and made a lot of new fans and friends yesterday. I also saw some of my favorite local brands doing their thing and doing it well (Fur Face Boy, Kaught LookingUnkommon Kolor, Fresh Kaufee, Sleepy Dan, HIJ Clothing, Illtellect, Nerdy Fresh, Pink Elly and so many more).

Music was also on point yesterday with DJ Sober (thanks for signing the Birks!) and A.Dd+ (with Brown). And hey – Blue – thanks for stopping by the table, as it’s always a pleasure to chat it up with you. And man, whatever, I’m still listening to Dope right now.

Anyway, enough jabber – enjoy Kixpo from my point of view, and thanks again for stopping by:
