These words are transmitted using digital internet tubes from the woods of Lake Ann, ten miles from the thriving metropolis of Traverse City, in the summer wonderland of Northern Michigan. Just the facts, folks.

And that gets me to thinking. I’m so lucky to be able to do this work in the first place, and then, to do it from the comfort of my parent’s dining room? Incredible. I’m very thankful for just that. Okay, back to it.

Hammering through page after page all day. Things are looking pretty damn good so far. In fact, word is the first issue we did a couple weeks back just got back from the printers. That would be the 2009-2010 Buyer’s Guide.

It’s been great to be home. Working hard, hanging with Mom and Dad, enjoying square meals, sleeping down in the dungeon, enjoying time with Gary, and…

…and Leigh , my sweet nugget, you are the best part of “being back home.”

FROM MEMPHIS: A kick-ass little documentary on Jay Reatard. Recommended. Cool shit. Don’t know his music too much, as, he’s the kind of kid who makes me feel real old for whtever reason. But that’s beside the point. He’s doing what he wants, and that’s always inspiring no matter how young, old, rich, poor, dashing, hideous you might be. Thank you, Mr. Jay.

REQUIRED READING: “Dear Old People who run the world…” Sign me up. Thanks to Dan Mac for blowing my mind with this one.

IT’S SUMMERTIME: And those Lips are out there doing what they do across the land. I look forward to catching them this Fall somewhere, and more importantly, that double album that’s on the way. Very excited for some new Lips tunes.

PRETTY DAMN AWESOME: Huntergatherer’s very own Incase neoprene laptop sleeve. I use a black one. This one sure does take the cake. Er, wood. Good wood. So many cool things going down out there. Kinda hard to keep up with all of it.

SPEAKING OF: It’s been awhile since I checked out HunterGatherer. Up to awesome stuff, just as I expected. So good, always.

Ahhh Michigan. After moving from Cali to Mich, I’m glad to know that there is another designer in the state - at least for a little while. Love your humor.
