Aluminum Illustrations
Posted at 01:35 PM


Here’s a new one for ya. Just putting the finishing touches on a Flickr set titled, “Aluminum: How It’s Made And Where It’s Used” Illustrations.

Take a spin through those, and check the good line quality and three-color brilliance. Incredible stuff. And hell, loads of it.

I got this book out there on that infamous “World’s Longest Yard Sale” tour Dale, Evan, Jess and I did back in August. What a bunch of pigs. Four days of junkin’, pulled pork and…hell, I’ll stop there. One of the best adventures of my life. Counting down the days until August. No shit.

If I remember correctly, it was from a little junk store somewhere in the wilds of Kentucky. I remember the shop clearly, and walking up to the book shelf. Oh yeah, I remember how it was a buck, and the old lady at the register having to calculate the “storewide 15% off sale” price that was in effect. And how long it took. And how cool that was to be waiting there with her. 85 cents. That’s what I remember.

So there you go. Some cool, old illustrations. Hope you dig ‘em as much as I do.

ALL SORTS OF NEW SHIT ON THE LIPS MYSPACE: The Flaming Lips update their Myspace page with all that Christmas on Mars stuff. Some cool stuff to check out on there. Get cosmic.

And, they are contributing songs to a trippy documentary about mushrooms, so, that’s cool, right?

BEAST PIECES!: Just like it says, “Beast Pieces!” We’ve got a card on deck for Wilderness, a small upstart in the Pacific Northwest. You might’ve heard of them? (Ben Vickery set us straight on this one, and we thank him for it.)

USUALLY, THIS KIND OF STUFF GRATES ON ME: But man, this time around, I spun the wheel a couple times and had some good laughs. Funny as hell. (via Coudal Partners, who, no doubt, had to think hard to come up with that moniker. Cheeky bastards.)
