Last weekend we were lucky enough to hit a couple estate sales real early one morning. Digging through some oldtimer’s garage out in HIllsboro, I came across this little piece of packaging.

Old, dead and discarded, I rescued it from the bottom of a pile of old car parts, sharp things and forgotten stuff. And that little logo you are seeing up above was enough to stop me right there in my tracks. And at that specific nanosecond, a billion things a billion different ways went through the empty space between my ears. And just one of those things said, “Man, that is a cool, little logo.”

Something like that.

It’s Thursday already, you beasts. We got one more day to kill it.

SOME PROOF, TO ALL THOSE “ON THE FENCE” ABOUT THOSE POSTERS: “Very orange on the East Coast!” Just check out how that thing “oranges up” that zone. Thanks, Avantaggio, and hell, everyone else who bought a poster.

Shipped out another 12 proud orders yesterday. You could be in the next load. Get with it and get orange!

SOME PITCH FOR YOU: Each order comes with a free poster tube, which we implore you to reuse for years to come. Also, each poster comes with “free extras” meant to compliment/complicate each and every nugget on that poster. You won’t be let down.

SENDING A DREAM PROJECT OFF TODAY: The new Richmond Fontaine record packaging is done and signed off on, for both domestic use and international editions. Very, very proud of this one. Can’t wait to show it to y’all. As soon as I can, I’ll get it up on here for viewing.

NOWHERE NEAR THE TROPICAL PORT OF TRINIDAD: Trinidad, Colorado, people. And here’s what Jeremy Firth had to say about it: “I lived in Trinidad, Colorado for four months, and they have some great old signs.” Click that link and check out the better moments of Trinidad.

Don’t even know where to start on this one. Wow. (Thanks, Firth!)
