Weekend Junkin' Report
Posted at 10:03 AM


FROM THE WEEKEND: Something we put together. The “Weekend Junkin’ Report.” A Flickr set with 31 views in full color. For you to check out on a Monday. Get the gears turning.

TRACKSTOPPER: Something that “stopped Bill Zindel in his tracks.” We know the feeling well. This Bill Zindel.

Great execution from good lookin’ bags to exquisite photography to sound type to web site that works, and works well. Very, very impressive all around. Made in Los Angeles. Big prices, but, you get the feeling they’ll outlast you and your first born, and that’s a good thing. Beautiful details! Make sure you check all the detail shots. And man, don’t miss the film. Intense.

What excites me most is the idea of a group of people coming up with a cool idea like this, and making it happen, and, doing it as good as they did. So inspiring on so many levels. Wow.

There just ain’t enough time in the day. Honestly.

A GOOD REMINDER: From the good people of Recovering Lazyholic. Act on it.

WE SURVIVED: Thank God/the Cosmos/nature/something it’s over. (Sent in by Derek Schille, who survived that mess too.)

Speaking of weekend junking, I ran across these on Saturday, and they made me think of Gary:

That Killspencer bag is about the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve got just two issues:

1. The price - ouch!

2. The goddamn pretty-boy male model type demonstrating the bag. After all the effort they put into getting all the little details right, that light-weight Calvin Cline ad refugee seems completely out of place.

The sight of that blue logo gave me a jolt! That’s the logo of Rockford Screw Products from Rockford, Illinois, my hometown.
