Halloween is one of the most fun nights of the year--and this year we have 3 of them. Saturday night, Sunday night, and Monday night. Which means if you're a girl you get to dress up as both classics in one weekend--A devil and an angel. I just found this picture of Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen from Halloween 2010. Boy have they grown up.

Ain't nothing like celebrating the fourth of July in the nation's capital, Washington DC. Downing beers, eating hot dogs, and learning new drinking games--these are a few of my favorite things. Sprinkle a little bit of Federal fireworks, with a panoramic view of DC's citizenry launching their own fireworks, and you've got one hell of a night.
America. Fuck Yeah.

Instead of offering a material discount, we've decided to offer inspirational words. If you've never heard this speech, you should go listen to the whole thing, all 18 minutes. This is the "Speech from the mountaintop" that Dr King gave the night before he was assassinated--it is prophetic, poignant and moving. He talks about his imminent death and gives the people hope for a post MLK world. This is just a taste of the words and passion that Dr King offered:

At the end of every year, we get to reflect on the year that has passed. It offers us an opportunity to stop and think about where we are, how far we've come, and where we're going. For Crooked Monkey, we get to see if we accomplished our goals and set new benchmarks for the next year. Here's some of our accomplishments from this year:
1)We focused even more on making sure our company goes green--reducing waste, paper use and energy use. We encouraged more working from home--which reduced our carbon footprint.
2)We launched our Kids t-shirt line in January 2010. The line has improved dramatically since it started and the January, February and March deliveries look amazing and the stores are reacting very positively. Our East Coast Showroom has done superbly, and we just added a West Coast showroom.
3)We started working on a new, higher end t-shirt line called "Blueprint." Samples have been produced--quality is supreme and the graphics are incredible. We'll talk more about blueprint as we launch it.
4)Our customer service has always been paramount to us, and we maintained our strict standards.
5)We attracted top notch new accounts--from department stores to boutiques--that fit our "Livin the Dream" mentality and offered them the best t-shirts around.
And looking towards the future, here's what we hope to do in 2011:
1)Formally launch blueprint and target unique, edgy, higher end boutiques that want to grow with Blueprint and be at the beginning of something special.
2)Obtain more licenses--from artists to household brand names we are looking for partners who want to give us artistic license to bring their traditions into our world.
3)Continue to develop the kids line, juniors line, and men's line. We're always producing new graphics, new bodies, and new styles so that our customers can rely on us for fashion forward, hip t-shirts.
4)Start producing non t-shirt items. We are in the process of launching a tote bag line in the next month or two.
So there you have it--our year end review and our milestones for next year! Drop us a line if you have any goals for us--or major accomplishments we forgot about. Or if you think we need improving in a certain area.

For this week's t-shirt, "No One's ugly after 2 AM," we decided to teach you how to wear a t-shirt in the cold, because it is FREEEZING in Washington DC (actually its below freezing).
So that's how its done--over a Crooked Monkey thermal. And in honor of the holidays, all our t-shirts are 20% off. So put that in your stocking, and smoke it.

We have a gift option at the checkout, and we have the pleasure of writing whatever note you want us to write. We've written a funny blog post about the notes we've written. But this is a different post.
This is about our interns who write those notes and how pretty they make them, because they want the gift to be perfect. Anyways, enjoy this special gift note, and when you buy a shirt from us, take advantage of our interns. Not in the sexual kind of way, but in the "They'll make your gift look even cooler than it already is" way.
This creation was done by Jacqui, our intern from Walter Johnson High School.
