Northwoods Nightmares!
Posted at 02:25 PM


ON THE MIND: Those Minnesota Northwoods! Prepping like hell for my little presentation at design camp, complete with wee hour nightmares of people getting up and walking out, botched AV stuff and a general disdain for the DDC that carries over into the rest of weekend. Nightmares, people. Yikes.

It better not go down that way. Go easy on me! I can promise you this much: A free Field Notes memo book for every every camper who comes to my deal. There you go. Some incentive to sit through it. Plus other surprises.

THAT MOOSE ABOVE: From the always impressive “Mid Century Modern - Sticker, Label + Stamp Club.”

THREE FANS ASK WAYNE SOME QUESTIONS: And man, Wayne can answer whatever you’d throw at him thoughtfully, usually in the range of 1000-3000 incredible word answers.

ATTENTION BIKE ENTHUSIASTS: Tons and tons of tube badges!

Here’s our favorite from that first page. Keepin’ it simple, and Made In The USA. (Sent in by Boise, Idaho’s Jerms Lanningham. Thank you, brother.)

A NICE SPLASH OF COLOR: “JHR Platz.” Needed this one. Always need more color. You know the deal.

Just don’t get afraid of nervousness. I use to be extremely afraid of speaking in front of people, but the majority of my fear was caused from being afraid of that feeling we call nervousness. You can’t control that feeling, so just embrace it, let it dominate you. Once you start looking forward to wanting to have that feeling, it will dissipate. Sounds weird, but it works. If you ever start to believe you can stay calm, you’ll begin to fear nervousness — and that’s bad.
