Oh man, did I score something kick-ass over the weekend! At an estate sale. With Mark Phillips as backup. A new acquisition to the DDC Factory Floor. I rescued a 200lb Diebold safe! Heavy as hell. Built like a brick shithouse.

For storing things like:

01. Riches.
02. Jewels.
03. Gocco nuclear codes.
04. Whatever the fuck I want.
05. My “tennis bracelet collection.”
06. Life-saving Dachshund Serum.
07. My seed, for future generations. (Don’t ask.)
08. Rare vinyl.
09. Teenage journals. (Embarrassing as fuck.)
10. Spare keys.
11. Rare documents.
12. Data back-up.

The thing is over at the local “Safe Shop” getting tuned up and ready for protection. Here’s some shots from the handoff this morning, so you know what we’re working with here:

01. “Landlocked inside Big S.”
02. “The footprint, which was home to tons of spiders.”
03. “Heave! Ho!”
04. “Dial details.”
05. “Handing it over to the professionals.”
06. “Good looking hardware.”
07. “The inner sanctum.”

LOCK ‘EM UP: Tons of old Railroad Lock & Key sets.

THE END IS SORTA NEAR: Check out the “Doomsday Seed Vault Photo Gallery”

IGNORE THE E-CARD CRAP, BUT DIG ON THE AD: But be sure to check out this old locksmithing ad. Pretty cool.

I like the term “locksmith”.

smith = Im gettin’ shit done, doing proper work

Perhaps, rather than “Graphic Designer”, I should refer to myself as a “Graphicsmith”.

That safe is sweet but the pink communication device is sweeter.

Be lucky if you’ve got anything to stuff in that safe these days. A timely purchase in uncertain times.

Dude, where does a locksmith lock up his locksmith van for the night?

Ah, Diebold, the same great company that brought us Election Fraud 2000 and Election Fraud Part Deux: Electric Boogaloo. Your stuff is in good hands! Was it stuffed full of Republican votes when you bought it?
