When I was up in Skykomish, Finnish Union/Coal specialist Joni Makinen was nice enough to translate “Wiener Dog” into his native Finnish tongue. I asked him to translate, he said it a couple times and he started to laugh, “It also means “12-pack of beer!” and showed me what a Finnish 12-pack looked like with a crude sketch. Basically, something like this.

That’s pretty long. Long dogs and long packages. You know how we roll.

434 AND COUNTING: 434 reasons can be found right here for going to the Tike Ranch Flick deal. Some great stuff in there like this, this and this. Randy Jones, you got “the eye.” Keep up the awesomeness!

I even found one for Rose in there: Here’s some shit that creep would prob’ly like.

AND YOU THINK YOU ARE TOUGH?: When up against these cahracters
, our answer is: “Not even close.”

My buddy Adam Bagerski is embarking on a 5-month-long trek of the Continental Divide Trail, and, hell, will be hiking every God-blasted mile from Montana to the motherfuckin’ New Mexico border with Mexico. Five months, people!

Here’s the site that’ll track their progress: Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.

Adam swung by the shop on Friday for a hug and some Field Notes. I loaded him up the best I could. In fact, he’s taking one DDC Clic Pen for the whole trail. It’s last. States and state of ink, brother.

Explorers…Men…Ramblers…Bad-ass Trailfuckers! Watch out for the bears out there!

Good luck, guys! We’re rootin’ for you. See you in November.

COUNTING DOWN THE MINUTES TO THIS ONE: The Lips are putting out a double album this summer, or fall, or something. And new tracks will be floating around soon enough. So good.

ADD THIS ONE TO THE LIST FOR “THING I NEED TO SEE”: A documentary about Alabama’s Dexateens.

KING OF THE BREEDS: A long plate for a long dog. (Sent in by a guy named Steve. Thanks, Steve.)

Here’s how we woke up this morning: Leigh got up early, and let Gary out to pee. I slept in for another 30 minutes, woke up, called for Gary to come “help me out of the darkness and into the light” and the little shit jumped up on the bed with massive excitement, rolled over on his side and promptly peed approximately 20 drops of the stuff onto our clean sheets.

Just the facts, readers.

Loved the link to the little “Nauga” creatures on the tikiranch site. Nauga is the mascot for Naugahyde, which is made in the Uniroyal plant just down the street from the Lefty home base in Stoughton. The only place in the world that make that disgusting stuff.

Whoa! That is a helluva trek. Godspeed to Bagerski and crew.

Finland’s colours are white and blue - the colourway you’ve got is Swedish, like Ikea…
