Shipped The Shit To Orlando
Posted at 04:30 PM


ONE WEEK OUT: Florida! The last frontier! Last time I was there I was 11 or 12. Years ago. We went to Epcot and it was incredible. One week from right now, I’ll be down in Orlando telling my half-ass story to the wide-eyed students of Valencia Community College. And maybe you too? If you live in the area, and read these words on any kind of a regular basis, well, we’ll just say it right now: You need to come to this.

I’m bringing my “A Game” for this one. Tall tales from a large man!

Here’s the deal, all official and stuff on my blog from earlier this week.

Shipped a ton of DDC Merch today, which, quite frankly, will be for sale at prices you’ll only see in Florida. Bring loot, you need this stuff. Get orange.

Getting excited to get myself real deep into some Florida. Leigh’s coming too, you know, for backup.

LITTLE_FIELD_NOTE_ICON.gif I WANT TO LIVE UNTIL I AM 1,000 YEARS OLD: So I can fill up 1,000,000 Field Notes memo books. I’m about 36.5 years/50 memo books into this quest. I’ll keep you updated. Get some sunshine in yer life!

HEY HOTZ! HEY BARTEL! HEY TREVOR: Hire this kid, already! Thomas C. Bradley wants to work for Nemo Design, and made a blog about it.

I think you should just chain yerself to the metal staircase outside their door, and stage a “hire me sit-down strike” thing. Might be effective? We wish you the best of luck. Good folks, those Nemo.

COOL THINGS TO CARRY COOL THINGS: Bags and made my Stanley & Sons Apron & Bag Co. Just like it says. Incredible. Their aprons are pretty great too. This one, especially. Hire me, Stanley people. When this graphic design stuff shits out, I’m shifting over to bags. Or something.

LEAVE IT UP TO BEAU COLBURN TO ALWAYS KEEP SHIT AWESOME: The best thing we’ve seen regarding these iPad doohickies. (Nick Evans dug this one up. Thanks, man!)

SHRALP ART FOR A GOOD CAUSE: The Munny Art Auction for a skatepark up in Montana. If you live up that way, you need to go to this. Mandatory. Ryan Wilson of RSPCT has got his hands in this one, so you know it’ll be good.

LOADING THIS ONE WHEN I GET A SPARE SECOND: A garage sale app for the iPhone. Perfect. (As recommended by R. Shaw of The Other Firm. Thank you, kind sir.)

Dale is so awesome!

Aaron - you need to go back to Epcot…I was there in February and went to Soarin’ ——it was fucking amazing! You need to go there! I would go back and spend the $85 just to go on this ride again!
