Clipper's Claw
Posted at 11:12 PM


SOME TRUTH TO START OUT THE WEEK: Dale Allen Dixon, you rotgut harbinger of more-or-less useless knowledge: You are fucked. The clipping pathery starts this morning at 10 in the A.M. Bring your A-game and don’t even think of messing with that fuckin’ pixel tolerance. Don’t. Be here. Be ready. Be focused. Get clipping.

We’re clipping hats. We’re clipping bindings. We’re clipping dachshunds. Whatever the hell it takes.

Dale will have “clipper’s claw” by Wednesday. That’s a safe bet.

THIS ONE IS FOR HOSS: Incredible Ham radio cards. Some gorgeous freehand mastery in there.

I’ll just say it this 3,427th time: No amount of schooling, apprenticeship, cultural analysis, heady discourse, academic honor or technical prowess can reproduce the brilliance here. So don’t even mess with it. Just stand back in awe, like the rest of us.

(Can’t remember who tipped me off on this one. Someone awesome, I know that much. Thanks.)
