Think Fast, But Not Too Fast

GONE, FOREVER: What you’re seeing up above is a little something I walked up on, pondered a purchase, and headed off to another room hunting for forgotten, long-dead little logos.

Leigh weighed in on this one, over my shoulder, breathing down my neck: “The reason I didn’t grab it, is because I didn’t think you’d like it, dickcheese.”

Well, are all the wires crossed! Sumbitch. Some outfit we are.

In estate sale situations you gotta think fast. And I did. And I am stingin’ over not snaggin’ this circular hunk of wall pottery, from a time long ago when women wore macrame vests and styled their hair to that of Fleetwood Mac album covers.

MORE STERN WORDS: You little rats better be checking out The State Mottos Project daily! New shit going up every couple days! Some heavy hitters on there! Go. Now.

SOME GOOD PRESS FOR THE DDC: We got written up on Coolhunting! So awesome. Thank you, Adrienne! Appreciated. I’ve been checking out that site for years, so hell, it’s an honor to get on there. Thank you!

HOT AIR OUT OF A BIG, GROSS BEARDHOLE: Yobeat’s Jared and Brooke took the DDC factory floor by storm and before I knew it, had me in front of a camera, interrogating me. Here’s the first part of our interview with them: “Designer Hump Day With Aaron Draplin”

Thanks, you “Upper Stark” beasts! It’s always weird to see my big melon shooting out flames. I need a shave for fuck’s sake. Beardy, in a bad way.

I dedicate my beard to my dad. I’ve never seen him without one. There might be some gnarly scar underneath all that muff, for all I know. He’s in town, and I’m going to check tomorrow. Delicate research.
