Secret Squirrel selling Supreme T Posters for sale at $450?

Surpeme T-shirtA 28-year-old graphic designer who wants to be called “Secret Squirrel,” has been ripping down posters of Neil Young wearing the Supreme T-shirt he modeled for, and selling them for up to $450.

According to New York Magazine’s website “The Cut”  the posters featuring a photograph of 69-year-old folk rocker Neil Young,  are  Supreme’s only method of advertising, but thanks to the brand’s cultish devotees, there was a line around the block outside the Lafayette Street store when the spring/summer 2015 collection went on sale recently.

Secret Squirrel:  “I went on eBay and saw someone else listing one of these for $150, Buy It Now! And I was like, ‘Shit, I should go get more.’ I knew it would go for dough. So I went out and got 25.”

He listed a few of his posters on eBay. The bidding on one of the posters is up to $51.00. For this “tryptic” [sic], i.e., three posters stuck together, the Secret Squirrel is asking $450. “There’s one that’s at $11.50, but they all have 10 or 12 watchers each, and I’ve been getting a lot of messages about them,” he says. “You can’t buy these anywhere else. Supreme doesn’t sell them. Maybe they would give them out to friends and family of the store, but those people wouldn’t sell them,” he added. (This might not exactly be true. One seller is selling two brand-new posters, never wheat-pasted, for $300 each.)

Farm Aid set for Sept. 19

Farm Aid 19852015 Farm Aid date is set for Saturday, Sept. 19 and this year they are celebrating a 30th anniversary.

Their press release reads:  “Our annual concert is a time for celebration where artists, music fans, farmers and people who love good food come together with one purpose: to keep family farmers on the land. We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s 30th anniversary concert will take place on September 19.

“That’s all we can share with you right now, but we wanted to be sure that you—our most loyal fans and supporters—are the first to know the date. We’ll announce more details as soon as possible singulair for asthma. We hope you can reserve that weekend to join Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews and many more artists to be announced for a festival of amazing music, good food, and a full day of experiences that celebrate family farmers.”

“The first Farm Aid concert featured more than 50 artists on one stage. In the 29 years since, hundreds more artists have given their time and talent to support family farmers. This year, we would like to invite even more artists to join us onstage as we celebrate family farm agriculture.” –– Willie Nelson

“The legacy of Farm Aid is twofold: in the change we’ve made in our farm and food system, and in the rich musical record of concerts held since 1985. The list of artists who have played on the Farm Aid stage is a who’s who of the best artists of our time.” – John Mellencamp

 

We know Zuman Jasper is excited.

Random Quote

But me I’m not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I’ll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I’ll know the time has come
To give what’s mine.
