FROM THE PRAIRIE: Here’s a couple nice sets of old matchbooks from Nick Evans down there in Lincoln, Neb. Dig around in there! Some seriously great lines going on in there. Good stuff, Nick!

Go: Matchbooks set No. 01 and Matchbooks Set No. 02.

HERE’S ANOTHER MATCHBOOK WORTH DIGGIN’ ON: This time, from Lonny Hurley. That’s a cool fuckin’ name. Okay, here’s that old book of fire.

Damn, looks like the link is broken. Weird. It’s cool shit, so try back again soon, if feeling wild.

AND HELL, JUST YOU WAIT: We’ve got a little something cooking with A Life In Color’s Kyle Dewitt. Regarding old matchbooks. Coming very soon. Going to be incredible. Holy shit.

HELL FREEZES OVER: And Goo’s suddenly contributing to the DDC? Yes, he is. He comes up from the woodwork, turns his t-shirt back inside out and sends us this link: “Letterheads As Works of Art: Wild, Weird and Beautiful.”

CATCH THEM IF YOU CAN: Dan “Jungleland” Cassaro was in here last week with his scientist better half Niamh. Had a nice discussion about precisely 17 things. These are nice kids with good spirit, adventuring out in the big world, making good work, doing science…all out of a fiberglass travel pod. Pretty fucking cool, if you ask us. Keep it up. Hot showers, guys! You know the drill.

Here’s an interview with Dan. Good reading here, people.

We’ve for that “Everything Ohio” and “Totally Texas” in stock and being shipped all over the globe. Don’t forget our “North to Alaska” beast! And hell, there’s always our “Feeling Minnesota” poster that’s stocked and shipping from our buddies at Burlesque North America! That thing rules! Damn. Thanks to everyone who made a purchase. Tubes are flying all over the nation, on their way to you!
