DETROIT’S FINEST: It’s always good to go back and check out those old MC5 photos.

Got Detroit on the mind, starting up a poster for that speaking gig next month. My mind goes right to that MC5. My mom tells me stories of seeing them, and the Stooges, and Mitch Ryder, and a very young Bob Seger. My mom.

Let this one fire you up some.

Or fuck, this one: Actual Department of Defense Surveillance Footage of the Revolutionary MC5.

I’m talking about unity, brothers and sisters!

NO BARCODE TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE: “Graphi Deluxe” on No Barcode. Hell yeah. Look at that box, then think about what you’d find on the shelves today. Let the blood boil. Mine does. Good snag, man!

STARTING HIM WHEN HE’S YOUNG: Sometimes we wear pants. Sometimes we wear sweatpants. Sometimes, we sit here in our boxers. Lots of scenarios. Here’s my nephew Oliver, in his very first pair of sweat pants. I even snipped the gathered bottoms off, just like Uncle Aaron does. Sweatpants. Ball room. Free and easy. Real gross.

WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS, RIGHT?” That Mayflower logo, and wouldn’t you know it, they go and change it. In a bad away. Imagine that. Fuuuuuck.

WISH I WOULDA THOUGHT OF THAT: “Dipsticks (The Humans)” 2008 by Nick van Woert. Really interesting works of art by Mr. van Woert. Dig around in there. We dig!

What a shame. I’ve always loved the Mayflower logo. Just the other day I was driving by a big truck & thought how rad it is & always was.

Reminds me of the Bank of America logo. Super good before & “updated” it’s poopy. Even has the same feel, I wonder if the same people did it….
