Showcasing Series #1: Local Fusion (and Blueberries!)

Christmas is sneaking up on us, ninja style.  All stealthy and clandestine, December 7th (that's today!) just reminded us of how badly we need a calendar.  Something else that we've been celebrating today is the fantastic caliber of local businesses.   It's overwhelming how much creativity and entrepreneurship the little special city of Wilmington contains, so we're going to start a series of showcasing (and shoecasing in some situations) the local flavors that makes the ...


He Went To Freakers

Life's little moments are special. The twinkling twinkles can be twinkly.  Make sure that this season, you hold these memories close to your heart.  This season, make sure you freak and get freaked. 


Sneak peak!

On the set of the greatest romance Christmas video ever made.  You will laugh. You will cry. You will be overcome by the joy of the season, in an epic show of passion and chilly confusion.   Coming soon to an Internet near you.


Kung Freaked Fu!

Christmas came early for us at the Freakerteam last week. We received a treasurechest of goodies from Kung Fu Nation, the musical industry demigods that are responsible for the Wilco Freaker! Ever since that fateful day, our ninja skills have increased by at least 69% and we have been packing your orders with not only tender love and care...but also stealth. (Also in the good-news news... Kung Fu now sells Freakers! HURRAH!)  Thank you, Kung Fu! We will forever karate chop o...

Zach's Blindfolded Birthday Ball

You guys want in on a little known fact about Zach? His birthday is December 1st. That was yesterday. He is that guy who never willingly discloses the date of his Get-Born, and unfortunately for him, we are the type of office that exploits those types of guys.  And what do you get the guy that keeps his birthday a secret? A blindfolded trip to Hooters. Of course.  At approximately 1:54 pm on December 1st, 2011, we blindfolded the ZPapa, threw him in the car and kipnapped him f...


Mom! We made the news!

Last Friday, WECT local news covered the Freaker non-Freaker debacle!    Even though we missed the full coverage (we all have to make sacrifices for tacos sometimes), the reporter sent us this very special screenshot of our creep-skillz. 


Smurban Smoutfitters

Last week when we found the non-Freaker Freaker on Urban Outfitter's website, we were a little dismayed. This was yet another example of a multinational corporation outsourcing small designer's ideas without permission or compensation.   But then all of a sudden, an army of freak warriors came out of the internet forests and wreaked havoc upon Urban Outfitters and their predatory business practices. Our beating little hearts couldn't contain our love and thanks to all of you American ...


Small Business Saturday Saturation!

Tomorrow morning, the local heros over at Gravity Records are having a bash to in celebration of not beating-anybody-up whilst standing in line for 12 hours... Small Business Saturday is here to save the daze!  And we here over at the Freakerteam have been overwhelmed by the amount of support and love that we've gotten in the past couple of days, so we're going to bring the boxtruck out tomorrow and throw Gravity & friends a grilled cheese party! And of course, you are all invi...


The local news gets Freaked! Tonight!

Breaking News: At approximately 11:23 am today, on November 25th, 2011, WECT news interviewed the Freakerteam on the recent revolt against Urban Outfitters sparked by the corporation's production of a Freakeresque rip-off. Words were said and handstands were performed, and The Freakerteam forgot they were being filmed at approximately 11:42 am, and Oliver Mellan hijacked his own interview.  And then The Freakerteam realized that they don't own a television. "We should PROBABLY...


Danksgiving

Yesterday, pilgrims and Indians and Freakers and families drank too much and then at some point remembered there was food involved. The best part of Thanksgiving, however, is the moment of clarity where everybody realizes just how thankful they are for whatever it is that they are thankful for.  Here is a complete list of those moments of clarity, Freaker style: We are thankful for massage trains. We are thankful for bouquets of puppy feet.   W...


PBRaunchy

Today we got a very special care package from PBR.  It started out as a very pleasant experience...  And we got so excited that we had to go out into the sunshine and skip around the concrete fields for a bit.  But wait a second.. What is this?! OH! How CONVENIENT!  We took some snapshots of the glory-hole (Aahahah!) and sent a nice HELLO! to PBR. (Please note: yesterday, we tweeted to Fred Durst for 12 hours with no response. PBR immediately got back t...
