Susan Sarandon thinks Hillary Clinton would have been 'very dangerous' as president

  Susan Sarandon thinks Hillary Clinton would have been 'very dangerous' as president Actress Susan Sarandon is having a tough time since the 2016 election as the star is now being attacked by the left for refusing to support Hillary Clinton. Despite campaigning for Hillary in 2001, she was a supporter of Bernie Sanders in 2016. When he failed to take the Democratic nomination, the actress did not shift her star-powered support to Hillary, which got the attention of the moderates and the left in a very negative way.“I got from Hillary people  ‘I hope you’re raped.’ Misogynistic attacks. Recently, I said ‘I stand with Dreamers and that started another wave,” she told The Guardian in a recent interview.

We’re standing in a warehouse in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a 30-minute subway ride from Mr. Procell’s eponymous vintage clothing shop in Lower Manhattan, and he is explaining how one box of T-shirts can be worth as much as a Mercedes-Benz SUV.

Much the same way vinyl has become collectible, the musical acts of our youth, whether the Clash or Coolio, are experiencing a curious encore run as salvaged tees. “When you combine nostalgia and aspiration, that’s some powerful stuff,” explained Mr. Procell. The shirts are a wearable way to cling to one’s salad days, boosted in value by the fact they’re hard to track down—after all these years, what’s out there for sale is what’s been spared a trip to the dumpster. In becoming a luxury item (and one laced with music’s evergreen edginess), the T-shirts have also gotten a boost from paparazzi-tracked celebs who revel in rare wares.

Metalhead Indonesian president gets thrash-worthy gift from Danish PM

  Metalhead Indonesian president gets thrash-worthy gift from Danish PM Indonesia's metalhead president received a thrash-worthy present from his Danish counterpart Wednesday. Joko Widodo, better known as Jokowi, was presented with the recently launched, re-mastered box set of US heavy metal band Metallica's 1986 album "Master of Puppets".The 56-year-old Jokowi is a well-known Metallica fan -- several years ago he received a signed guitar from the band's bassist Robert Trujillo.A spokesman said Indonesia's leader was "pleasantly surprised" by the unusual diplomatic gift from Danish counterpart Lars Lokke Rasmussen, who was in Jakarta on an official visit.

At first, I thought it was one of those H&M Metallica shirts but it is not. I want to believe Kim was smart enough not to pay that much, but we both know that she probably wanted it because it was two thousand dollars.

As we talked, Mr. Procell unfurled T-shirts with logos from the likes of the Beastie Boys, the Cure, Tupac, Morrissey, Snoop Dogg and Stevie Wonder. Most of these shirts are priced at somewhere between $100 and $400. Some go for over $1,000, possibly to one of the celebrity collectors such as Kanye West, actor Justin Theroux or Maroon Five’s Adam Levine, who rely on Mr. Procell’s uncanny ability to unearth sought-after gems purchased long ago at record shops or ear-splitting shows.

These celebs rely on Mr. Procell because, as his partner Jessica Gonsalves cautioned, “Just because a tee is old doesn’t make it cool.” She went on to call out one rapper who was photographed in a Hootie & the Blowfish shirt. With all due respect to the Darius Rucker heads out there, Hootie & the Blowfish isn’t exactly setting anyone’s hair on fire.

And yet, taste be damned, that rapper did wear it. So frenzied is this niche of the T-shirt market today that practically anything goes. While Mr. Procell prides himself on rarities like a Miles Davis tee, curiously worn to near translucency, or a misprinted Mary J. Blige shirt (those are the shirts that sell for as much as a weekend at Coachella on the broader market), even forgettable B-band garb—tees from Ratt, Styx, Ted Nugent and any band that was best left behind when we evolved from 8-tracks to CDs—often carry triple-digit price tags.

“If it’s got a cool graphic, it will sell, even if it’s a cheesy rock band,” said Patrick Klima, the purveyor of Wyco Vintage, a Kansas City-based T-shirt site. “Shirts from the ’80s band WASP have killer artwork and sell—but nobody goes around saying ‘I’m a huge WASP fan.’” Even Mr. Klima admits to wearing a Genesis shirt for that reason, but he isn’t exactly cranking up Phil Collins’ greatest hits after work.

Being a poser was once the kiss of death for self-respecting music fans, but now it doesn’t matter. Kanye West can sport a T-shirt featuring the black metal band Cradle of Filth, or the rapper DMX can toss on a Def Leppard top, but no sane person would expect them to be jumping into the mosh pit anytime soon. The same goes for most vintage T-shirt fans. “I’m not going to quiz you about your five favorite songs to see if you qualify to buy a band’s concert T-shirt,” explained Tom Hunt, a vintage dealer based outside of London, who operates the website Rock Renewal; if he did so, his business might not be booming right now. “Customers will say, ‘Oh I always wanted this shirt!’ and I’ll think ‘It’s not because you’ve just seen Justin Bieber in it?’”

Longtime collectors similarly look askance at this recent vintage T-shirt bubble. “I love nostalgia, but it’s not what’s driving this trend,” said Chris Black, a New York brand consultant and T-shirt hoarder. “I could walk down the street and see some bozo in a Rolling Stones shirt, who couldn’t tell me anything about the Stones. They’re just wearing it to be cool.” He recalled a recent incident when he wore a worn-in T-shirt for the band Spaceman 3 and had three people come up to him asking where he got it. “It’s Spaceman 3, it says that right on the front!” he told them. Fact was, they were just interested in an eye-grabbing graphic, not some obscure, British, neo-psychedelic band from the ’80s. Who knows, maybe Mr. Black inspired them to listen to Spaceman 3 on Spotify that night. The more likely scenario? They went searching on eBay.
