FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: My littlest sister Leah and her beau Jacob are expecting!

And today they had their ultra-sound, and saw the little nugget move for the first time.

- Good, strong heartbeat.
- Good chance the thing will have “lots of hair.”
- 7cm long.
- Might be a girl. Might be a boy. Coin toss.
- Moves a lot.
- Excited parents.
- Excited grandparents.
- Wild name options. I offered up, “Aaron Gary” as a name for a boy.

I’m gonna be an uncle. Wow.

Cycle of life, people. I’m sitting here like a big pile of slop…just sobbing, snorting and happy as hell for these shits.

My parents are flying in on Saturday morning, excited to see their glowing daughter and her impregnated womb region.

JUST ABOUT THE BEST THING NAKAMOTO’S EVER SENT ME: Usually, that fucker send me “dancing cats” and “ghost ride the whip” videos and shit. Not today. Today, he sent me a link to an INCREDIBLE font inspired by travel tags. I think the numbers are the best part. Of course, I went to get a copy and hell if the line isn’t busy. I need a copy! Help!

NEW ACQUISITION TO THE DDC FACTORY FLOOR TRAVEL DIV.: A Filson Duffle Bag, Medium size. Popped for the thing, finally. Made right in Seattle. Built to last, forever. Or else. For that kind of scratch, it better go until 2109. I’ll be watching closely.

I throw I Feel Alright on every once in a while to kick my own ass. “South Nashville Blues” is a fave.

Congrats to your sister and you. You’ll make an awesome uncle. I am so excited to become an one as well. Hopefully soon.

Also, thanks again for showing Jason and us around your studio a couple weeks ago.
