Six Cents A Piece
Posted at 10:20 AM





FROM OUR VAULTS: Years ago, enjoying some of the so-called “spoils” of our so-called “success” we went and splurged on a set of matchbox advertisements on the eBay. Got 6,000 of the things for like 100 bucks! Six cents a piece! That’s a lot of things. Such a treasure trove of color, line and type. So many things to blow the mind. We went digging in them the other day and pulled these gems out, and that’s what you are seeing today. Cool stuff from a faraway place, a long time ago.

WAH-CHIKKA-WAH-CHIKKA AND REPEAT: Goo sent me this one: Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World. Good shit. I want to get a Wah pedal. Don’t even know if I need one. WARNING: The Kirk Hammett parts are especially painful.

CHECK THIS WILD SHIT OUT: Surreal photos of subway car being thrown into the ocean. Just like it says. So weird. My mind goes to this place seeing these: Hope someone pried off all the cool nameplates and shit before they were sunk. Something like that. Still weird. (Thank for sending in, Todd Turner of The Hangline.)

YEP, YER STOCK JUST WENT DOWN: Adam Garcia is The Pressure, and he makes cool shit. Like this, which we are “really into” on a “scrawl” level. Too many parenthesis. Come into the shop, buster. Bring that little fucker, Lovejoy.

ONE WEEK FROM NOW: The Spark Y-16 Conference down in San Diego! I’m bringing up the low end in a colorful cast of speakers, so, please stick around for my 35 minutes! I pledge to do my best.

Everyone needs a wah pedal. Funnest $90 you’ll ever spend.
