Welcome to Hey Nice Tie!!

Hey, Nice Tie!

I started Ugly Tie Tuesday as a blog to showcase my Ugly Ties that I wear on a monthly basis in 2011. Things have progressed into more of the bigger picture of neckwear. I am posting all kinds of bow ties and neckties, and changed the name to Hey, Nice Tie!


UTT still happens and it will be a feature here along with many other themes: Neckwear in TV, Film, advertising, brands, makers, fabrics, novelty, etc.


So, yeah...NECKWEAR!


Thanks for stopping by

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown:http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

HAPPY NATIONAL BOW TIE DAY!

CNN put together a nice gallery of Pop Culture figures in Bowties

"Jaws on men’s tie "Shark Attak". Gray nautical necktie with ocean blue and shark teeth."

From a store on Etsy called Tie Story. They carry a variety of creative and impressive pieces, I will be posting more from them!

I am going to say that this one of the best artistic neckties I have come across. It is creative, ambitious, and both really cool and beautiful.

HAPPY UGLY TIE TUESDAY!
