This Is A Big Fuckin' Deal
Posted at 01:19 PM


I always talk about how busy I am, and let me assure, those words hold water! Here’s a little something I put together for my little brat sister’s upcoming baby shower. She sent out a mess of card to all her pals here in Portland for the party here. There’s gonna be a Detroit shower too, which the “Womb of Honor” will attend over iChat, due to being “too late in her term” to be jetsetting all over the nation. Baby stuff. Baby shit. Cycle of life, people.

There you go, some proof for you guys: We make stuff.

File this one under: “Didn’t Make Rotgut Cent On The Thing,” “Family Matters” and “Cycle Of Life” categories, respectively.

GREAT JOB, MUSIC VIDEO PEOPLES: Here’s a band called Navigator that had a million matches boxes designed in the vintage Eastern European style, to sing the song. Awesome. (Ryan Moeckly dug this one up, and we’re grateful for the link.)

COOL WATCHES FROM THE DECADE I WAS BORN IN: Some great time-tellers in there. (Thank you, Chad Kaufman.)

THE NAME ON THIS ONE IS PRETTY BOSS: A kick-ass Flickr set called “The Complete Type Collection.” Get wild in there. Some incredible stuff. Learn something. We did. Just, uh, better. (Good work, Werth!)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Coming to Detroit in late April to do a photo tour with Leigh. Going to see where I was born, my first house, my Gramma Josie’s house on Artesian, that sidewalk in front of her place I used to skateboard up and down waiting for dad to get home from work, as well as hitting up Detroit for a couple intense days. Take this one to the bank: DDC vs. DTW.

LET THE DARKNESS ENVELOPE MY SOUL, AND THE CREATURES OF THE PITS OF HELL REIGN SUPREME OVER MY MORTAL WEENIE BALL: “What a wonderful world” by Mr. Louis Armstrong, with Satan’s minions guiding him along. (Leigh found this one, and released it from her black wings just moments ago.)

ONLY IN AMERICA. ONLY: Mr. Vice President, you are one class act! The DDC loves you! This is a big fuckin’ deal.
