Really Blew It This Year
Posted at 07:49 PM


STILL CAN’T BELIEVE WE MISSED IT THIS YEARS: That goddamned World’s Longest Yard Sale. We did it in 2008 and 2009, and this year, well, shit just fell apart. You know, “cosmic canine” stuff and generally being “way too busy.” So we missed it this year, and it hurts. Fuck.

But Columbus, Ohio’s Kyle Kastranec didn’t. And here’s some proof from his mission: “World’s Longest Yard Sale 2010.” Good work, man. Just what we needed. Get in there and get those hands dirty with some Highway 127.

There’s always next year. Jess, Dale and Evan: We really dropped the ball this time around.

BUT JUST YOU WAIT: We’ve got a little something to launch tomorrow, if we can pull it off. In regards to that World’s Longest Yard Sale. Just you wait. Check back tomorrow for the whole deal.

DAYWRECKER WARNING: The Vignelli Archives. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

I’ve got a couple of Vignelli Associates books. There were these “utopia” clothes or something they designed in the ’80s. Just, funny as hell. Real loose and cotton-ish and goofy as all get out. But not like their design. Idealistic design. We dig it.

THERE WE ARE, ALL OFFICIAL: I’m heading to Minneapolis this weekend to be a judge for the Minnesota Ad Federation’s “The Dog & Pony Show 2010.” Pretty excited to get my Hennepin Avenue on. Been too long. Man, I love Minneapolis.

Sign us up! When we get back, we’re gonna be real hungry. Just warning you, Jessica. (Tipped of by our buddy Embry Rucker on this one. Thanks, man!)

02. A weird click coming from the machine. (Been backing up hourly.)
03. The sound of Toby the Shih-Tzu sucking on my dirty socks, by my feet.
