Missouri, I can’t wait to see you again. It’s been awhile. I’ve got some stuff to say, to you.

I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE A GOOD YEAR: When this link came in from Alan Wall. I got it way back on the 4th of January, and sat on it like a dumbass. So I’m sure you’ve seen it, and moved on. But I haven’t. I keep going back to it, and so should you. Let’s start this one up again: Stereo Stack: A kaleidoscopic wonderland of hi-fidelity and dual-dynamic vibrancy.

Man, seriously. How great is that one? I mean, how lucky are we to enjoy this stuff? You think the guy who sells you insurance enjoys stuff like this all day long? He looks at Dilbert cartoons and shit. We’re lucky to do this stuff. I’m reminded of this hourly. Thanks, Mr. Wall.

COOL TYPE AND ILLUSTRATION RIGHT HERE IN PORTLAND: Portland’s very own Brad Simon is getting a new “Tumblr Rumblr” going, and based on this little meat wizard right here, this could be something worth checking regularly. Plus, it’s got one hell of a name: Pork and Jeans! I got a good feeling about this one. Smells like pork!
