As we wave goodbye to Jason this week I’ve decided to bring you a compilation of some of his best bits from Brandish.
Jason brought us gems like Generic Man, a mild obsession with Taz of Sa-Ra and original pieces like the post on Bobby Womack‘s glasses. Chuck in a sense of humour that brought us stories like: ‘Ronaldo’s suit: Yay or Nay? I’m just kidding, of course it’s nay‘ and you’ve got a writer who will be sorely missed, goodbye Jason!

Last but definitely not least who can forget the controversial Mustang skinline jeans video? Don’t click the link. Seriously. Don’t.

Jason’s departure means we are looking for writers, if you think you’ve got what it takes email me at isabelle [at] shinymedia.com

Bobby Womack: Making square glasses look good

While the term style icon is overused, I would like to nominate Bobby Womack up for the entirely made up award of coolest glasses wearer. His overall style wasn’t amazing, but he wore square glasses better than anyone I’ve seen (not that I’ve seen many people wearing square glasses).

After reading his autobiography, I felt compelled to anoint him with this title. Aside from wearing glasses well, Womack’s worked with, toured with or played for everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Sam Cooke to Janis Joplin. In fact he was the second to last person to see Joplin before she died (the last was her dealer, according to Womack). He was also the inspiration behind ‘Mercedes Benz’ and convinced Sam Cooke to not release ‘A change is gonna come’ (it was only released after Cooke died).

With clear glasses getting more popular by the day, why not step outside the box and follow in the footsteps of Mr Womack?
