RYPE For The Pickin'

          That awkward moment when you fall asleep on a Thursday and wake up to find that it's already Monday (followed immediately by that even more awkward moment when you want to stab (lightly stab, nothing fatal so calm down, y'all) everyone you here start a sentence with, "That awkward moment when...." and then proceed to do just that. Whoops.). And no, I'm not referring to any sort of narcoleptic and/or comatose state here, I'm referring to the absolute dream-like mindset RYPE has been living in this past weekend (with only the occasional tremor of a nightmare. Who knew double-sided tape wouldn't hold a nearly 20 pound canvas?!?? I mean c'mon here, people, it's the 21st century.... duh). Watching my sister soak in those first rays of light you get when something you've really put your heart and soul into comes to fruition was like nothing I've ever seen, the glow on that girl was juicier than a rype July day! RYPE is the perfect example of what you get when putting genuine hard work, time and dedication into something you love and Rachel is the guru of all that old fashioned goodness. So of course like any morbid person, with the birth of happening all around me I couldn't help but think about all the near deaths Rachel Rype has also bore witness too. Near death by hot water heater was not the only time this gem of a sister has saved my ass with her charms and strong will, I can't forget the time I almost died of boredom and she decided we should move to California (and did I mention two weeks later we did? Just call her a Cheetah Gurl, cuz this bitch wastes no time, fast and fierce, brrrr.). Or the time I almost died of embarrassment when I was informed by our mother that I did not, in fact, need any sort of brassiere yet, (or little did I know, ever) but you can't be a 13 year old stuffing your bra if you don't even own one so the dear lent out one of hers. She didn't even complain when I borrowed her socks as stuffing on top of that for maximum realistic affect, a true life saver. Oh, and we can't forget the time of near death by self impalement, even at six she could entice the scissors right out of my stubborn four year olds fingers, almost definitely saving me an eye, she could not, however, save the haircut. 'Nuff said. This bitch has been saving me from near death experiences and guiding me into new births for the last 21 years, so thank you, Mama Rype for the cat's outlook on life and I could not be more excited to be able to watch you start a couple new ones of your own. Ok, ok now that was touching, I know, but about this epic dream....

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get.... Stress Ulcers.

It's been a busy couple weeks over here in RYPE Town! That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence kind of love... I mean busy (C'mon, there's always time for a Mary-Kate and Ashley movie, where do you think we get all of our amazing quotes from!?) Everyone is pulling it together (some of us a little more dangerously then others) for this home stretch before the big night on Saturday and I can honestly say I've never been more excited in my whole, wide RYPE LYFE! Rachel Rype has been using that panty dropping charm of hers to get RYPE in all the right places, with an amazingly stellar, "OH, helllll yesss" kind of shout out via Stateside Magazine's website (CLICK ME!) and that's right, get ready for it, the ultimate in awesome!!!!..... A half page low down on all the goods in the Santa Barbara Independent! Oh, no you didn't! Oh, yes we diiiid!! (CLICK ME FOR THE GOODS!!)! We're all beaming with joy at little baby RYPE and all the progress she's made! Thank you all for your hard work and I can't believe how many friends have come out of the woodwork to help make this happen! SEE YOU ALL SATURDAY AND HAPPY BIRDY DAY Y'ALL! Now here's a little peak into the hectic creative process we've been experiencing as of late! Enjoy, you know you want too...
