Ernie's Greatest Hits Vol. I
Seeing as my first quarter of life is almost complete, I felt it might be fun to share some posts I wrote on Livejournal between the ages of 17-20, mostly because I can’t believe I thought this was good writing. Doo Doo Brown and An editorial.. Best Damn LJ Period. Ernest Wilkins. but you knew that. Ok, to begin, a funny story. So at the game this weekend, i met this ri-god...

gravity-burst: the embodiment of ‘shallow’ is attractive — sad but true. that blazin’ concert, those rounds of tequila that are nothing less than reposado, the rare yummy fish someone had to go to the ends of the earth to catch then overnight to the states so they can serve it to you on top of a glistening piece… This is so true. Great post.

Chicago Meet Up - June 23rd →
thesilentist: suitsandboots: ordinaryglory: Two things I can promise: 1) If you come to the meet up, you’ll have a great time. Ask everyone who showed up to the last one in April hosted by Jesse of PTO. A definite good time. 2) I don’t care how many well dressed ladies and gents happen to show up, I will see to it that we look the exact antithesis as the group pictured above. With...
I need your help.
Well actually, James VanOsdol does. Since legendary Chicago rock station Q101 is now doomed to go the way of the dodo, he started a kickstarter to compile an oral history of the station and all of the legendary stuff that’s occured during it’s run. Q101 was the first station I heard modern rock music on. Yeah, it was 1996 and most of it sucked in hinsight, but I know I’m not...
While neither Q101 nor Merlin Media have officially announced the fate of the...– I don’t even know what to say. Link here.
What I learned this morning:
I’ve been naive. Apparently, if you have a few cronies and a lot of money, you can do whatever you want in this world. Doesn’t make a difference how inept you are at what you do. Duly noted.
I just got it. I don’t what the hell I’m doing. Add me, I’m ernestwilkins.

Remember your roots while dressing
eyefivestyle: I employ a lot of prep inspiration in my dress, but I’m not trying to look like some douche who wouldn’t let me in his country club. I’ve never even seen a country club. I solved this problem. My style (or at least what I tell myself) is blue-collar prep. Yeah it’s an oxymoron, but who cares?
The one about Father's Day
I have good memories about my dad. The unrelenting mission to get me to laugh, his mandate about drinking 8x glasses of water a day (sorry pop, I’ll get back on it), the time on Easter he hid a gang of Peeps around the house (my mom is DEATHLY afraid of baby chicks) and the absolute onslaught she unleashed upon him after. He died 13 years ago. That’s kinda bugged out to see typed,...
Save the Insults
atotalrec: As I stated last year….NO NEED FOR INSULTS! Just say Happy Father’s Day and leave the “Real Men” vs. “Baby Daddy” discussion for another day. Celebrate those who are active and involved in the lives of their children and pray for those who have not realized the value and joy of being a Father! THIS x infinity.
Notes from the Tuba Player:
“An open letter to the International Menswear Tumblr Community.” Ayo, Some of your Pitti Uomo posts are coming across like you’re typing with one hand, if you dig me. That being said, keep on keepin’ on. Love, Ernest.
