Random Thoughts: August 28th, 2009

Painfully cute, eh? I drank so much of this in Japan. If Qoo came to Canada, I'd die. Of diabetes.
  • Yes, still no Japan photos. I'll get to 'em. In the meantime, look at my wife's (assorted sets are to the right)! Bonus: check out Coop's Japan photos (in glorious black and white)!

  • Making Good on #5 (again). Just under a year ago, I was attempting to handle a New Year's resolution. Fast forward to now, and I'm messing with Indexhibit instead of Squarespace, and things are going very well. I need to make some aesthetic decisions, as well as what work is going in it, but I very well may be able to launch this portfolio site before the end of the year. Other folks that use Indexhibit – my man Mark and fellow GP member Scott Campbell.

  • 1643 "tweets" in five months. I guess I like Twitter. Really didn't think I would. It's been equally entertaining and informative. I just don't like referring to my posts as "tweets". It makes me ill.
    On a related note, this tag is killing it as I type this: donttalktomeabouthiphop. If you need the truth in that regard, look no further than noz of Cocaine Blunts: noz's donttalktomeabouthiphop updates.
    Essential folks to follow: Phonte, Questlove, Dana DeArmond, MyFonts, LetterCult

This man and his store makes me happy.

  • I think that's it. I should go to bed or draw something. Peace.

Give Your Money!

A book you need in your home as soon as possible.

Sometime back in 2001, I was visiting the Tijuana Bibles site (sadly, the band and the site are no longer around. Their MySpace page, inexplicably, survives) and found a link to this lil' ol' site from Calgary called Back then, it looked something like this. I became transfixed by the amazing work and the lively conversation, so I became a member a few days after 9/11 and never really looked back. (and its helpful denizens) reinforced and augmented my college booklearnin', and it also helped me suss out my life mission and motto: I just want to make cool shit. For all of that, I am eternally grateful to the site, and the man behind it, Clay Hayes. Now, the site and the man could use a little help from you and me (don't fucking love posters).

So yeah, go buy some merch, which will not only help the site, but it'll also enrich your flaccid life. What, you think I'm joking? Dig live in a cold climate, right? You need a knitted cap (or "toque" as us Canucks say)! And if you don't live where it gets "nipple-y", I guess you'll just have to settle with looking bad-ass in one. Don't need a cap? GP's got three different decks of playing cards for your gamblin' ass. These are easily the sexiest cards since the ones you stole from your dad, and these ones you can actually play with in mixed company, you pervert. Need proof? Here's a big ass picture of the deck I'm involved with.

All kidding aside, this site is dope, and it's a great resource for postermakerlovers both young and old. Do my man a solid and pick something up, or drop a lil' loot into the bucket via the "Donate" button at the homepage if this site has brought you any measure of joy over the years.

A-ight? Good.

Well, look at that!

A whole month without blog posts! Japan pictures posted! Wow. WTF, I know.
I guess I didn't have anything to say. And my dwindling hard drive space provided a mental block once it came to editing the over 2000 photos I took on my vacation/honeymoon/trip of a lifetime.
I still haven't resolved that memory issue.
At any rate, I'll do my best to keep y'all better informed, that is if you find my tawdry lil' life interesting.'s something I did last month:


Please, come to the show. It'll be fun.
