I’m broadcasting this transmission from the 11th floor of the Commonwealth Park Suites in downtown Richmond, just a couple blocks from the capital.

Got a busy day lined up, but will be thinking about this kind of stuff all day long:

01. That pesky Jefferson Davis and his Confederacy.
02. Just how close Richmond was to D.C. in those turbulent Civil War years.
03. Founding father Patrick Henry’s famous speech.
04. Reconstruction.
05. The hometown of GWAR, and I don’t know why I’m mentioning this.

EXCITED AS HELL FOR THIS ONE: Jess Gibson has a new film up, and you don’t want to miss it. It’s called “AFOL A Blocumentary.”

Get in there and get building. Bravo, man! I helped out with the titles, which was my first foray into the moving pictures world, aside from my little video clip thing that Jess wrecked my life with. Hell yes, Jess! When I get back from Richmond, we have to hit the junkin’ circuit around Portland hard. I’m itching for a good estate sale.

SOME DEDICATION TO MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT STUFF: “Man spends 30 years creating model of Herod’s Temple.” Holy moly. Incredible stuff. (This link is from Schille Enterprises, Chicagoland.)

SOME INCREDIBLE WORK HERE, READERS: Madison, Wisconsin’s very own, Swink Inc.! Really nice stuff. Pay special attention to their vectors. Some great logos in there. Midwest! (Sent in by Tom, and we thank him.)
