Jess Goes To Peru
Posted at 02:10 AM


Jess “Hard Drive” Gibson goes all the way to Peru and all I get are some images. I wanted a llama, you dick!

Here’s some shots from this trip, exclusively cherrypicked for the DDC, or so I’m told:

REBUILDING AMERICA!: Recovery hits the streets! I can’t say a thing about this one, but Mode sure as hell can, so I’m just passing on the link, patriots. Okay, here’s a little something: My heart beats super fast when I see this stuff. Glass, can you even believe it!? I can’t wait to see it this fall on the road. (Via the freedom fighters of Mode Project, Chicago, Ill.)

A BAND FROM CHICAGO: Tortoise offers up a new song from their upcoming Beacons of Ancestorship album. Grab that song,. Way recommended. Played it about eight times yesterday. Great stuff. Last time I saw them was in 2004 or 2005 at the Roseland in Portland. Sat up in the balcony and really, really dug it.

SCIENTIFIC PRECISION DIAL, OR SOMETHING: The Rhythmeter, which, is a typographic wonder, and a complete mess. A handy tool for charting plumbing and cycles and what not. No wonder there was a baby boom!

(From Derek Schille just south of me in Chicago. Good find, man. What’s with all the Chicago in this post? Damn. Ditka. )

HOLY HELL: Thanks to all the bad elves who bought a DDC Action Cap the last couple days. I’ll ship the mess out when I get back to Portland tomorrow afternoon.

Aaron, you need to submit some alternatives to that horrid “Tiger” logo on the road project. It’s a mess.

Hey man, I actually forgot to tell you that the recovery logo popped up on a posted notice at work, like, three days after you unveiled it. I’ll email you a pic when I get home from work.
