The Ins and Outs of Fashion is an expression of the impractical high view
the public has placed on the fashion world through the media and reality
shows as of late. In the end, the direction and redirection of matter
become mundane and as it's worth is intangible as flatulence itself.
Axle is a native San Diegan, button pusher and firm believer in house
parties. He's currently working on his sex rag etiquette booklet and
digitally remixing music for his band, Tweengasm.
