Happy 8th Anniversary Driven By Boredom!


Today is the 8th Anniversary of Driven By Boredom. I know most of you had no idea that I was running this site as a college sophomore way back in 2001. Probably most of you didn’t know that I was old enough to be a sophomore in 2001, but the fact is, I did and I was. The site has changed a lot over the years and I have some exciting announcements.

1. I am starting a group blog. I often have ideas for ways that my friends can contribute to this site, but since no one realy has in the 8 years it has been running I decided not to start now. That is why I am starting a new blog staffed by friends of this site. It is going to have content from a variety of people. It is going to have people who contribute sporadically as well as a small staff of people posting several times a week. I am hesitant to give you any more details as the blog is still being designed. I never like announcing things ahead of time because a lot of times they never work out, but this is a project I have had in my head for a long time and it looks like it is finally coming together. If there is anyone out there who is looking to become a staff blogger for the new site, please contact me. For at least the short term this would be a completely unpaid position but there are some perks. Anyway, I will be posting another blog when the design is finished and I am ready to start gathering content.

2. Free DBB T-Shirts. As you can see below, modeled by Daniel Casanova AKA DJ RekLES, I have made Drivenbyboredom Tshirts. Thanks to Kill Shop Kill we have made 100 free shirts that I will be giving away all this week. We are giving away the shirts (plus some tank tops and tote bags) at three Drivenbyboredom Anniversary Parties this week: Tuesday at Disco Down at Happy Endings, Wednesday at Playhouse at Cain and on Friday at Trash downstairs at Webster Hall. If you do not live in the city, or can’t make it out for the next 24 hours 48 hours you can order a free shirt on this site by using the pay pal link below. Come Monday Tuesday morning I am shutting down the Pay Pal for this so you only have today and Monday to get a free shirt. They cost $5 each, but that is only to cover the shipping and Pay Pal costs. Essentially they are free. After today the shirts (assuming we print more) are going to be $15 or $20 each (I need to talk to KSK about this) so get your free one today. More information about the parties will be posted this week.

UPDATE: The free shirts are no longer available online.  Look for them this week at the parties mentioned above and the shirts should be available soon online and at the Kill Shop Kill store in Williamsburg.   

About the design: The shirt was designed by Nick The Duke of Cobra Kai based off the Chanel Liquidation by French graffiti artist ZEVS.

    Cheers, Igor!

    I remember 2001. And my boobs are probably somewhere in your archives from back then.

    I hope I get to see you again one day Kelly, it has been way too long.

    Nicole, leaving your house is important. I will give you a shirt and we can shoot you in it… or out of it… or whatever works.
