Apart from running production of our "for the elite" t-shirt (that is not stopping any time soon it appears), for the last couple of weeks we have been shooting a promotional ulbator video, a commercial if you will. The idea is to display what ulbator is about and what we stand for, as well as displaying some of our garments in action. We have shot about 3/4 of the material and we will spend a great deal of next week editing. At the pace that we're working at ulbator, you can expect to be able to enjoy it very soon. Of course the video will be accessible from the webpage. I'll let you know how things are progressing.
The facebook link in the upper right corner now works. Amazing, the connectivity possibilities of this modern age...
Even more amazing how the grumpy luddites at ulbator have finally taken this big step of enhancing our prescence in the digital landscape.
Just got this to work after a couple of days of an unreliable internet connection. Our "for the elite" t-shirt is now available in White. Grey and Black will follow shortly. Here's a photo from Tuesday's shoot. Go to the store and order.
About the pipe - it was obviously for show on this occasion. However, I do smoke me a pipe every now and then and it has become my favorite way of ingesting tobacco. I am probably the only one in central Mexico who smokes a pipe but doesn't stuff it with weed, though.
Some say that smoking (tobacco, not crack) may increase your testosterone levels, so this friendly piece of bro-advise from the ulbator head honcho is a way of combining pleasure with usefulness. When you purchase tobacco, don't buy any of that wimpy, honey- or vanilla tasting crap. Only pure tobacco, no additives are necessary. Hallucinatory or otherwise.
This shot, as well as the one in the store, was taken outside a closed down pharmacy in a dusty, worn-down part of Guanajuato with stray dogs looming around the garbage bags in the street. Guanajuato is quite the touristy place, and the down town area is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Still, I chose the dirty outskirts for this photo shoot as down town has been depicted a few times too many already. Also, it suited better ulbator's personality. As a brand, I would rather describe us as a little rough around the edges than polished and accommodated.
It seems as if my countrymen find it a pressing issue how the chairman of the board of the "svenskt näringsliv" (lobby organization for Swedish businesses) organization claims (lo and behold) not to be feminist and claims not to favor affirmative action interventions that regulate Female - to - Male ratios for management positions at Swedish companies (link, in Swedish). Outrageous claims, I know.
We are very sensitive to the need for political involvement at ulbator. And we are by no means a bunch of dumb male-chauvinists, like those fellas over at "svenskt näringsliv". "So what's your take on feminism?" you ask. And you are right to ask it, as the sensible mind of the ulbator head honcho has not left out pondering about the sexes. And his conclusion is this: We love girls at ulbator. Especially cute ones.
p.s. - I love my countrymen, but come on. Are non-issues like this really worth your concern and effort?
Have a wonderful day!
Not for Pussies!
