Sometimes I forget how good this is because of the last couple of mixtapes he put out.

Chimptown Dogs

The Chimp Store did this funny 'dogs in hats' lookbook for the headwear they sell.

As you can see, Vinny was ahead of the times. He was wearing Toms and eating organic foods waaay before everyone else did.

4 Years Of Brahg: 20 Greatest Hits

I honestly can't believe it's been that long. I remember when I first started posting. It never crossed my mind that anyone was actually looking at it. My first post shows how enthusiastic I was about it at first. Anyways, i'd like to thank everyone who's followed our rantings and random HQ happenings! Use this code, SEYMOUR for 40% Off our online store on Men's/Women's tees and hoodies. Cheers!

20.) We Own The Streets
To this day I still see some taxis with our sticker on their bumper. I'm not gonna give away who did the cop cars. I assure you it wasn't any of our guys. We know better than that..

19.) Air Vinny
I vividly remember this day. There was a lot of laughing and reshoots from different angles. Of course Vinny was never dropped. He was still a puppy at the time which means he was super light and was too chill to care about flying. It made for a good Spring Catalog cover.

18.) Frat Boy Time Capsule FOUND
This is still by far one of the craziest things I've seen during my years at Casual. Dano was cleaning his room and they removed this cover to find a garbage bag full of clothes stuffed into the vent that was blocking the ventilation (for obvious reasons). The party house continues to live on.

17.) Collages.
I didn't realize how much of these i've done. There's a lot. And they were fun to make. Here are some of the best:
Eye Patches
Top Hats
Middle Fingers

16.) Dogs In Shirts Day
This was the day Casual discovered that shirts aren't only for humans. Definitely one of the best Junkyard Dog's greatest hits. RIP Bodhi & Lucy

15.) One of Dano's bad days.
For a guy who is annually on crutches due to snowboard injuries and always getting black eyes from random people, this had to be one of his worst days. Getting sucker punched by a random drunk dude at a party then getting t-boned the next day on a coffee run. It's the equivalent of a samurai getting his ponytail cut off by an enemy. Not cool.

14.) Beach Office Meeting
One of Casual best summer days. It was hot enough to swim in the frigid Sound. AK swam like a dolphin and Bodhi rolled around in a dead animal.

13.) Creepsville
AK, Gino, and I made police sketches. If you haven't tried it yet and you wanna kill some time, go here. The possibilities are ENDLESS.

12.) It takes 3 Casual employees to operate an Espresso machine.
You tell Casual to make at T-Shirt, we'll shake the magic tree and one will fall off. Tell us to make a good cup of espresso and we'll tell you to go fuck yourself.

11.) Dick Moves
Dick Moves refers to Vinny's ability to shit on or in anything to send you a personal message. I used to think he was kinda dumb. Then he shit inside one of Dan's hats.

10.) Junk Runs
I couldn't tell you how many we've done. But there is progress. We are moving further and further from being pack rats. The driveway has been clear for about 3 weeks straight, thanks to basketball.

9.) Casual Deforestation
Some had to hack down the jungle. Vinny was beginning to grow a tail and longer claws/teeth. Nature would have turned him into a man-eatting yard tiger.

8.) Killa Bees
It was a slow blogging week. Had to come up with something.

7.) Ki goes BIG
Some pictures don't need a caption.

6.) Bodhi Returns
Bodhi spent his last year or 2 away at Dan & Brendo's parents house getting pampered, having steaks, going on long walks. Pretty much living a better life for an older dog. When his health starting getting worse, he was brought back to HQ so we can spend as much time as we could with him while he was going through so much pain. He's kept Casual safe and scared off any potential predators (no matter how harmless) since the very beginning. We still miss him alot, and we hope he's kicking it with that dalmatian from Sublime.

5.) Casual's Where Are They Now
This was the direct result of everyone going on vacation while I stayed here to hold down the fort. I made up a bunch of stories about them in a bitter rage. j/k, i was really board and my imagination got the best of me.

4.) Casual Biggest X-MAS
We hit a record high on our websales, thanks to all of you guys for supporting and believing in us! The shipping receipt was almost the length of the basement.

Of course we had a big celebration following the end of 2010

3.) Friends & Family Night
So far our best moment of 2011.

2.) Poopy crosses a line.
Poopy was pretty chill when he first started hanging out. Then Jeremy brought over Brody and we saw an uglier side of him. It was funny at first until he went out of his way to do it in the design room. Brody has not been back since.

1.) Trash Hoop Diaries
Best invention since the Snuggie. Pay me.
