“Ooo wee ooo, I look just like Buddy Holly”

by Josh Highland on April 10, 2007

I’m not one to endorse products. Rarely will you see me wear a brand t-shirt, and if you do its for one of my friends companies.

Yesterday I went to the eye doctor, it was time for a new pair of glasses. I got to pick out new frames… I HATE picking out new frames, they never have what I want. I like heavy thick rimmed black glasses. Think Buddy Holly, or your old skool emo glasses. Ever since I have had to wear glasses, I have like the thick frames the most. Most people don’t like this style, so finding glasses like that is alway a pain… until now.

Paul Frank is a company that makes awesome stuff. I think part of the reason for that is because they employ young people that are into indie rock, punk and hardcore music. They actually sponsor a number of hardcore bands but you wouldn’t know that from their clean and sharp boutique image.

Paul Frank has a line of prescription eyeglass frames that people like me have been looking for. You can find the glasses through http://www.baumvision.com

I personally went with the “Pinkerton” frames.

Pinkerton the name of a Weezer album. The singer, Rivers Cuomo is known for his thick glasses, much like Buddy Holly was.

I dont like Weezer as a band, and I don’t like Rivers and his drug problems, but I like the style of his glasses!

I ordered the frames today, they should be here tomorrow, then I can get my RX filled. I’m excited to have glasses that I actually want this time.

So here it is, this is me officially endorsing a clothing company, Paul Frank. Paul Frank really is my friend!
