WAY PROUD OF YOU, BROTHER: My brother back in Traverse City, Eric Campbell, is up to some incredible stuff. His design firm Tandem Design been rolling up the sleeves for a little furniture company out of Southwestern Michigan called, “Herman Miller.” You might’ve heard of them. Anyhoo, he’s been doing packaging and microsite stuff for them, and it looks incredible. I’ve see the box system up close, with all the incredible printing and details and stuff.

Here’s some proof: Herman Miller Select.

Eric Campbell, people. I was the best man at his wedding. We used to skate and snowboard together, as well as see rock concerts. I’ll never forget looking down from the balcony at St. Andrews at him and getting a rather hearty “Holy Fuck, we’re just minutes away”-inspired look of excitement, waiting for Dinosaur Jr to come out. Years ago. When we were little whippersnappers. Another lifetime.

One time we slept in The Hawk€”my ‘84 Buick Skyhawk€”outside a snowboard hill called Raging Buffalo in Algonquin, Illinois. Man, it was cold. One of the best times of my life. No money, no future, no big whup.

YER STOCK JUST WENT DOWN A COUPLE POINTS: Here’s a guy making awesome stuff down in Oakland. Cool pirate thing, man. Who the hell’s doing the photography? Nice, nice stuff.

BEEN HEARING ABOUT THIS FOR SOME TIME: And man, it’s time to make a visit. Way overdue. Ace Typewriter & Equipment Company

K. HENRY, YET AGAIN: Holy Hell. Get a download of this. “Accordion Corporation of America.”

MAN DECORATES BASEMENT WITH $10 WORTH OF SHARPIE: Just like it says. Non toxic. “People are amazed that with something as simple and inexpensive as a Sharpie, you can decorate a whole basement.” (Thank you, Rachel Cotton.)
