A GRAND CANYON OF APPRECIATION IS FELT: To the people who keep us going. To everyone who bought some DDC Merch over the last couple weeks. We’ve set a couple records! Thanks, so much, and, watch those mailboxes. Lovejoy has been to that Post Office more times that you can shake a stick at.

Those socks are “working out there in the world.” And also working here on the DDC Factory Floor. We’ve got proof: Here’s how Jeff Baker made good use of ‘em.

DAYWRECKER WARNING: Whoever the hell Al Q is, well, take this one to the bank: Al has got it going on. Dig into his Flickr sets some, and we warned. Mountains and mountains of stuff to check out.

Today, we’ll start with:

01. “Shortwave Radio Ads”
02. “WCFL Sound Surveys”
03. “From A NYC Cab”

WE LOVE MIKE GAUGHAN: And you should too. A buddy from my time in Minneapolis. The word “Amazing” just doesn’t cover this kid properly. Creative as hell. Nicest guy you ever met. Great head of hair. Nice smile. Big heart. You need Mike Gaughan in yer life. He’s moving to Portland and we are happier than hell.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite Mike paintings: “Self Portrait with Painting Instructor and Hypothetical Baby “

Man, I love Mike Gaughan. Don’t fuck with his Quadchopper. Brilliant.

Portland is about to get that much better.

OVER AT FIELD NOTES: Get a load of a beautiful “Cargill Farm Notebook” from the 1970/71 season.

How about this usage?
I sure would like to “shake a stick at” that face.
Could be good, bad or both eh?
You be the judge.

I been there. I’ve been to that spot and caught that fish and felt that pull. But I’m not yellow.

I know that’s a fish up there but it looks like a penis from afar. Jen was reading this post and I said, “What’s up with that dick?”

Woah! Just spotted “Why America is Fucked” in the House Industries Show & Tell feed. Congrats! That shit’s gonna go over big when it’s done. Can’t wait to see it.
