46 INCHES X VERY COOL: An old pair of Carhartts, ready for the big time.

Felt-lined? Sweat lodge. Not for the faint of leg.

SOMETHING I KEEP HEARING AND READING: “Things were different back then. You had to find things. You had to wait to find things. You could still discover things.” I don’t know if I should feel nostalgic, or ashamed, or proud, or dumb, or old, or young or just not give two shits about anything, and crawl off into the wilderness to expire with the leaves. A thought.

DUMB, BUT ENTERTAINING ENOUGH: Observe and Report. Dark, just the way we like it. On a whim we rented it, and were pleasantly surprised. Good, dirty fun. The blond nugget in the movie is annoying as shit, and equally forgettable. But that made up for with the awesome Asian twin cops, pickled mom and cop-stanced cops.

THIS LINK MAKES ME WANT TO SPIT: Old stuff from factories and places where the people who actually used this stuff would just laugh to think about the rest of us paying these sorts of prices. Or, maybe like this: Smarter people than you, putting big prices on stuff they’d never use anyway. Something like that.

I have a good assortment of this stuff, and I found it for five and ten bucks and whatever, and didn’t make some big city dongstick rich along the way. I’ll stay dumb.

CAPTIVATED BY SOME OF THESE: The Ian guy has always been a little too much for me to handle, but, fuck it, there’s lots of good chatter here. Something to listen to. No one tells me shit. These are probably years old, and I’m just finding them, so, you might be snickering. Nevertheless. Here’s a couple worthy ones: Mick Collins and Steve Albini.

Interesting characters. Whole handful of them.

01. Tight Bros From Way Back When - Runnin’ Through My Bones
02. Gordon Lightfoot - Gord’s Gold
03. Gillian Welch - Hell Among The Yearlings

I have no stake in the link, but know you’ll enjoy the songs posted here. Magnolia Electric Co. doing some live songs…

Always good. It’s o.k. to feel.

Seen the Collins episode, gotta watch the Albini one. I dig the Ad Rock episode.

Lyon is still making steel furniture in the USA. I use the tall stools at my kitchen counter. You will never have to buy another one. they are built for the long haul. Support them!

Stackbin is still going strong too. Third generation, the shop is rad, tons of old huge metal presses, and they will build you just about anything.
