Every once in a while the @SweetSweetLax Twitter handle picks up something unexpected, and the subject of this post definitely falls into that category.

Now I just finished watching Almost Famous for the first time (and you’re thinking, “there’s a movie with Jason Lee sporting epic flow you hadn’t seen?” I know, dude. I’m sorry). You see, I’ve been a fan of a man’s hair making an honest depiction of his character for as long as I could grow it. I even wrote a flowpinion column about it once.

What I realized after watching Almost Famous was this: I think the keyword in my previous assessment of flow is “honest.” Or “grow.” Which brings us to the topic of this post,

We’ve all seen the Flowbucket. Hair attached to a helmet. Look good, play good. We’re on board. But turning the fun of fake flow into the business of fake flow? I’m not so sure. With Con Bro Chill’s Flow Attachment currently priced at $1,000,000.00, I guess they’ll have cornered the market.

I do appreciate the “Thompahawk” though, but I think it might need the Jeremy Thompson stamp of approval for me to truly put my weight behind it.

Jeremy, what do you think?

Should the free market decide your fake flow’s fate, or should we collectively retire the jersey of fake flow to be admired and simply say we remember when?
