Ladies of Be Nice

Ladies of Be Nice

Hello Earthlings of Be Nice!!!

We here at Be Nice want to wish you a Happy Mid-Summer and to celebrate we are having a sweet summer sale! All shirts are now $25 from $40 just like that. Boom!

We also updated the website’s “Photos” section with new photographs from 2011. Which brings me to this, Be Nice would love for our loyal patrons to send us pictures of yourselves in Be Nice shirts, doing anything, anywhere. If you so choose to accept this challenge you may be the insanely lucky winner of a fantastical Be Nice shirt of your choosing. You will also be featured on the Be Nice homepage for the months of October and November. Not too shabby!

Here are the simple details on how to enter the Mid-Summer Photo Competition. From August 14th to September 30th, email photos@ubenice.com your full name, contact email address, photo title and attach your photo. That’s it!

Last but not least we have updated the “Wind Turbines Are Good” black and white t-shirt design. Check it out here! Super model Sabrina Whiteman making Be Nice shirts look even better once again.

Just a reminder that each Be Nice shirt is printed with water based ink on Alternative Apparel, super soft, organic cotton shirts. Thay are all done by hand in our Brooklyn, NYC studio. Each shirt is one of a kind. You know that is pretty bad ass.

Be original with Be Nice.

Sincerely yours,

Cara E. Reynolds
Be Nice

12 dogs with only hours left to live. The shelter will open at 8AM. You must call at 8 if you can rescue or adopt. DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE! Keep hitting 0 until someone answers. If they do not, call/email the following people:Julie Bank – jbank@nycacc.org (p212-442-2059/f212-442-2066),​ Ellen Curtis- ecurtis@nycacc.org, or Richard Gentles rgentles@nycacc.org.

A new “To Be Destroyed” list comes out every night between 5:00-6:00 pm. If there is a dog you can adopt call the ACC number if it is BEFORE 8pm. You will HAVE to pick up that dog that day. They will not hold the dog they will kill it. The only way they will hold it for 24 hours is if an approved rescue calls the hold in. Go to the the shelter in which the dog is located. If you cannot make it to the city..you again can get an approved rescuer to pull and there is a possibility of transport. If you have any questions please ask on the page. We have many “seasoned” helpers who can direct you on the page.

*Post under the ALBUM and PIC if you are interested in a dog. Ultimately, the earlier you offer/contact a rescue, the better. You should not just rely on this page but contact as many rescues on the APO list as you can. http://www.animalalliancenyc.org/aboutus​/apos/atoz.htm

*New? Get approved by an APO TODAY to foster/adopt later on. That way, no mad dash! You are already approved. The earlier you plan, the better.

* NO calls to shelter to hold a dog unless YOU are local AND YOU are the adopter. ONLY CALL TO ADOPT IF YOU CAN GO GET THE DOG ASAP YOURSELF. Otherwise get a rescue to help you.

Here is the Facebook page where they list what dogs they are euthanizing next. Like it, share it spread the word as these dogs are being killed because the humans that adopted them could no longer take care of them, abused them, they ran away, etc. You would not kill human children after a week of no one adopting them, why do we kill cats and dogs? We know they feel and have a grasp of what is going on.  We should do better as their guardians in this world.

Some other ways to help are to help raise funds for billboards. Here is their deal…

I was recently offered the use of 30 billboards (as they become available) for just the cost of artwork! That means for $840, we could help spread the word about our Death Row Dogs. Every day we are losing more lives to this disgrace of a shelter system… we can not rely on reporters, to do 2 minutes segments that only discuss part of the problem. The public needs to know all the facts and they need to know now!!

Please consider donating… The more people we reach with our ads, the better chance we have of saving the lives of our animals at the NYC AC&C.

or visit www.darlingdesignsnewyork.com , for every purchase made on this site they donate a portion of the proceeds to Urgent and free shipping with any order $50 or more. You can also go volunteer as a foster parent, at the shelter, etc.

Please help these New Yorkers who need you now more than ever.

New York Magazine

In January of this year I mysteriously started receiving New York magazine. I have no idea where it came from, but 21 issues later, two separate addresses, no gift subscription notice and never one bill, she still arrives in my box a couple times a month.  The crazy thing is I don’t think any of my friends would get me a magazine subscription as a gift.  I used to go on and on about how they are nothing but a waste of paper and information readily available online.

Here’s the catch, I love this magazine. I love when I unlock my mailbox and it falls out. I love the feel of it, the touch, the articles, photos, events, trivia bits drawn in corners, the smell. I don’t think I ever got that before. People’s love of magazines.

My dilemma, being green is how militant should I be?  Here’s what I do know, I may never resubscribe if New York magazine stops coming, but I’ll never cancel it either.

I’m just sayin’.

They have all sorts of cool stuff like a record that sounds like rain and never ends…snowballs…old pencils, a million different colored tapes, notebooks, string calendars… You must go check out these super fly, little, strange artifacts in this store. The owner, Nina Allen, also has a wholesale company Sweet Bella. I love the telephones! A lot of the stuff on the site is sold in the brick and mortar shop.

Here’s the rest of the shots, including some cute vegan shoes from MooShoesDay 141 – Marine and I LES.

Denise and I were walking one night and it started to lightly snow. I looked down and on my coat there was the most perfect snowflake, it seemed unreal. Neither of us had ever seen snowflakes like that in the entirety of our lives. We didn’t believe it until another perfect snowflake landed next to the first. This picture is of that second snowflake. They were so beautiful. It was like magic…

That was the first time Denise and I experienced snow together.

Kathleen Hanna

This is a re-write 3 days later.

Kathleen Hanna seems cool. I don’t know her, but I loved the last video in this post of her at Joe’s Pub. It pushed me to become mini obsessed with her over the last week. That might not seem like a long time for most people, but for an obsessive Aquarius like myself it is enough time to form a 100 page hypothesis on this observable phenomenon.

I edited this post 3 days later. Someone rated the post 1 star which means they thought it sucked ass. Which it did! This might not be any better, but they are my words. I don’t care about the one star per se, but if I am going to get it I want it to be for my words, not “facts” I found on this world wide web. That’s reduncqulous. :]

On with the show!

This video is from when Kathleen was with Bikini Kill.

She released a solo album under the name Julie Ruin in 1998.

She then went live as the lead singer for Le Tigre in the late 1990s.

This last video is about how Hanna’s drunken tagging of Kurt Cobain’s apartment inspired the name for Nirvana’s single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. It’s preformed at Our Hit Parade staring, Kathleen Hanna, Kenny Mellman, Carmine Covelli, Mike Jackson and Mr. Adam Horovitz. They also did Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl”. :]

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
