Trying To Find The Time
Posted at 03:13 PM


Yeah, so shit’s been a little wild this week. We’ve got our sleeves rolled up a number of projects, all of which we are gigantically proud of. Stuff like “meeting the incomparable Jim Felt over at Studio 3” and “talking shop with brother Vin over at Instrum3nt” and “getting teary-eyed when looking at some Lew made” and “trying to keep it together on camera for Jess” and “figuring out how to sell you things you don’t need” and “trying to learn a couple hard-ass Wilco riffs” and “waking up in the middle of night to the most deafening thunder clap a motherfucker has ever heard” and other unmentionables. Oh yeah a bunch of projects in the “graphic arts field,” specifically, the wild world of “contemporary headwear.” Need more days in the week, people.
