We’re just a couple hundred feet from the summit of Binding Mountain. Our yearly climb. Ropes and crampons and ice and vector files…just one foot after the other…all the way to the top. Marty is relentless. He’s representing Italy well, while I’m making America look real bad. Anyhoo, we’re almost to the top of this beast.

GONNA TRY TO CHECK THIS ONE OUT, WHEN I’M IN MANKATO NEXT MONTH: Basically, a room full of the finest work you just might ever see. Big words. Big heart. This guy: “Aaron Horkey, Midwestern Heart, Windom, MN 09/12/2010.”

And some coverage on Burlesque North America’s daily feed.

Hell of a kid. Met him during my time in Minneapolis. Incredible, incredible work. Hell yeah, man. Congrats!

FOR THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN ECHO PARK, PEOPLE: Hit up the Mohawk General Store, and tell ‘em “Drpalin sentcha.” Great to meet you, Kevin! A great chat.

NOW IS THE TIME, INDIE-DOM: Kickstart the Indie Cred Test book, presented by Chunklet Magazine. Get over there and get it going. For you, by the right kind of people. I’m gonna contribute some graphic arts to this enterprise. You bet. The time is now. Go.

CUSSIN’ ALL THE WAY TO AYTCH-EEEE-DOUBLE-HOCKEYSTICK: Good Fucking Design Advice. Get in there and let a couple meaty F-bombs fly. Fuck it, why not? You might learn something, you potty-mouth’d little piss ants.

CAN THIS GUY DO ANY WRONG?: That remains to be seen. But for now, Matt Stevens is on fire with those Nike studies, and now with a new set of Black Keys posters. Hell yes, man. Thanks for sending in. We dig!

THE NEXT TIME I’M THROUGH DRIGGS, IDAHO: The Spud Drive-In! Incredible. I’m pissed I didn’t catch a Cherry Bowl night out while I was in Michigan. Chalk it up to “striking while the iron is hot” and “being busy as fuck the whole time I was there.” In that order.

You totally found The Spud Drive-In by way of your man, Guy Fieri, didn’t you? Long live, Triple D!

Winnipeg! You’ve got to make it up here someday. I think you might dig it.

With Detroit so close to the border, I’ve always wondered if the Canadians ever produced their own line of cars. Now I know.

My favorite thing in New York was the subways.
