MORE COLOR, MORE COLOR: I know I’ve seen the image above around the web, and on the cool design sites, and all that. But it showed up in my inbox this morning from Mr. Baker in NYC, and I had to post it. So good.

ON THE PLAYER TODAY: Even If And Especially When by the Screaming Trees. Like all Midwesterners landlocked in Northern Michigan in the early ’90s, cool bands took their time getting onto our radar. I didn’t know a thing about them until they were hot shit on a national level, with their Sweet Oblivion mega release. I’ll tell you this much: I went to Ellensburg, Washington simply because they were from there.

Plus, I dug the Conner brothers as they we fellow “men of size.” Plus sizes. Gift of girth. Northwestern behemoths.

01. D Boon.
02. Tad.
03. Brothers Gary Lee and Van Conner.
04. Pig fuckin’ Champion of Poison Idea. R.I.P., man.
05. Meat Loaf (back in the day)
05. Tenacious D
06. The brothers from the Adolescents,
07. Frank Black.
08. And this guy, from Bowling For Soup.
09. John Popper before surgical surgeries.

HOLI-DAZE ACTION OVER AT COUDAL.COM: Go watch Michele talk about Field Notes, and the “stocking stuffer” sale going down. Good deal. Lots of graph paper. Give them out to bad elves. For the whole family.

VIA ATLANTA: Chunklet Henry makes a rock poster and I am showing it to you. We dig.

SO LONG: A cute, little, long dachsund button set. Maybe a little too cute for a hard-ass motherfucker like myself with a hard-ass, growling, frothing 7-pound dachshund at my side, but, you know, a good idea nonetheless.

Tad Doyle is probably my fave of the bunch, because of his menacing look. And truth be known, I’ve heard very little of his band, but I’m well aware of the 8-Way Santa controversy.
