This program is read by the author. The story of The Hundreds and the precepts that made it an iconic streetwear brand by Bobby Hundreds himself. Streetwear occupies that rarefied space where genuine ´´cool´´ coexists with big business; where a star designer might work concurrently with Nike, a tattoo artist, Louis Vuitton, and a skateboard company. It’s the ubiquitous style of dress comprising hoodies, sneakers, and T-shirts. In the beginning, a few brands defined this style; fewer still survived as streetwear went mainstream. They are the OGs, the ´´heritage brands.” The Hundreds is one of those persevering companies, and Bobby Hundreds is at the center of it all. The creative force behind the brand, Bobby Kim, a.k.a. Bobby Hundreds, has emerged as a prominent face and voice in streetwear. In telling the story of his formative years, he reminds us that The Hundreds was started by outsiders; and this is truly the story of streetwear culture. In This Is Not a T-Shirt, Bobby Hundreds cements his spot as a champion of an industry he helped create and tells the story of The Hundreds - with anecdotes ranging from his Southern California, punk-DIY-tinged youth to the brand’s explosive success. Both an inspiring memoir and an expert assessment of the history and future of streetwear, this is the tale of Bobby’s commitment to his creative vision and to building a real community. 1.

Raine Stockton and her high-spirited, big-hearted golden retriever, Cisco, are accustomed to being heroes wherever they go. But there´s a new dog in town, and Raine and Cisco find themselves unexpectedly upstaged by a flashy K-9 addition to the sheriff´s department. Nike and her handler, Jolene, are part of a new government-funded program for law enforcement agencies, and though Raine admires Nike´s talent almost as much as she resents Jolene´s arrogance, she can´t help wondering why the Department of Homeland Security would send such an expensive gift to their sleepy, little Smoky Mountain community. Sheriff Buck Lawson has his hands full with an upcoming election, a bizarre murder, and a special appearance by a celebrity politician at the Fourth of July parade, and he is not about to look a gift horse - or dog - in the mouth. But when things go horribly wrong at a children´s camp just outside of town, where Raine and Cisco are spending the holiday weekend, the scattered puzzle pieces begin to form a terrifying picture. In a desperate battle against an enemy whose face they can´t even see, Raine, Jolene, Cisco, Nike, and Buck must work together and reach for depths of courage they never knew they had to save the lives of those they love. 1.
