EAT. SLEEP. RANT. REPEAT. (The Shirt Edition)

10/18/2014 1:02:44 AM

As much as I don’t really dig those Outfits of the Days, (I mean I don’t really flaunt my OOTDs unlike the present trend), I ended up sharing the shirt I personally conceptualized.

Yes, it all started as a cover photo which also uploaded on my Instagram account.


At some point, I don’t really have an idea how I end up making this idea-put-into-clothing possible. I know, the overall design was too simple or even lame. All it had here were just four printed words (in a plain Impact font) laid on a black-colored background. Maybe because black was my second favorite color (aside from red).

And also, this type of mantra (the eat-sleep-[insert word here]-repeat thing) was often-used as a pop culture phenomenon worldwide, so still I won’t claim this thing as my original piece even if some of my friends from the blogosphere already suggested I should patent this idea of EAT. SLEEP. RANT. REPEAT.

But it would appear that I would own the idea that a lot of people already have made before I do, and that’s an unfair practice. Disrespectful, especially to that heel manager named Paul Heyman.

In case you don’t know why the Helen of Troy I incorporated Heyman into this post, let me take you back to that Monday Night RAW episode early this year where his client Brock Lesnar (sorry I won’t say it with emphasis, kids) actually don a sleeveless shirt with the words EAT SLEEP CONQUER REPEAT imprinted on it.

WWE/Voices of Wrestling

So now you know where I got this mantra, right? Yes, a similar mantra. And with all due respect, I am giving my credit and respect to the pro wrestling's presently-most hated guy.

Maybe I was the first one to create an EAT SLEEP RANT REPEAT shirt. (You will see EAT SLEEP RAVE REPEAT for most of the time.) Still I won't buy that argument for a copyright claim.

At least, when I attend some blog-related events, you will know who the hell SlickMaster is. In fact, after series of happenings, turns out I made a branding strategy, something I never expect at all.

This may be my OOTD for Blogapalooza 2014, but sorry I won’t publish the shots where I am actually wearing this.

  1. Nice statement shirt, been meaning to design my own as well, maybe it's about time I did. Not too into posting OOTD's either, like the trend haha. I think I only did it once, last year just to tag and show support for the awesome local IG shop I bought Marikina made shoes from. :)

  2. I think I saw someone wearing that shirt at the Blogapalooza since the statement caught my attention. Cool!

  3. When I first read your blog I really thought it was your line, haha. I had no idea Paul Heyman started something similar to it!

  4. Pretty cool mantra. I also want to design my own statement shirt. I don't watch WWE anymore. The last time I watched wrestling was when it was still called WWF

  5. I've already saw shirts with same statements except for the 3rd word. But this is pretty cool :)
