Union time. All day. Wrastling this catalog into submission. No holds barred. Don’t call. Don’t reach out. Don’t.

SOME PRESS FOR THE DDC: I got interviewed by ACL’s Michael Williams on the Wolverine shoes “1000 Miles” blog. Here’s the link, readers.

I had a pair of Wolverine boots one summer trimming trees. They saved my ass many a time.

Highlights of the summer include:

01. Staring down bald-faced hornets, and losing.
02. Wrestling a competing crew’s foreman, and winning.
03. Dropping a tree onto some ladie’s flower/vine/rack thing.
04. Standing up to my foreman. Guy named “Henry.”
05. Four days on / 10 hours a day / 10 bucks and hour.
06. Being invited back. Can’t say the same for the foreman.

MANDATORY VIEWING: Meet the guys from Billykirk. “Let’s make these.” Incredible.

JUST IN TIME FOR LUNCH: Ever see a baby elephant born? Here’s yer chance. Cycle of life, people. (Thank you, Leigh.)

MY TREAT THIS WEEKEND: A home viewing of the the One Fast Move Or I’m Gone documentary, that is, if the pages get done.

- - - -

28,000 REASONS TO WASTE TIME: A big goddamn Flickr pool of “Vintage Advertising.” Good luck in there. That’s a lot of reasons.

Here’s what I’m gunning for my next summer vacation. Fun for the whole gang.

Man, where the fuck did we go wrong? If Hardee’s looked like this today, I’d go enjoy a nutritious lunch with them. A little more on that, here. Anyhoo. (Thanks, Schille!)

Dug that interview over at Wolverine.

Dead car in an intersection separates men from boys. That’s some worst nightmare material.

I miss LIttle Caesar’s myself.
