SETTLE DOWN, BEACH BREATH: We’re kicking off the summer months of June, July and August with one hell of a link. Here goes, crableg.

Finally, a buddy sends in a Daywrecker, and it’s one of those links that lays waste to my whole day and, hell, week. And, I damn well know some snarky, little mouthbreather will be rolling their eyes with that, “Dude, that is SO last week…” kind of lament. Well, settle the fuck down. I work. I travel. I make a lot of stuff. And if you had the time to see all the hot shit links, maybe you ought to get a little busier, ya little peckerwood? There you go.

Anyhoo, SoCal’s Cory Lorenzen sent in an incredible link a week back, and like the dumb ass I am, I sat on it, too busy to broadcast it to the world.

Here it is: “C116’s Sailboat Logo Archive.”

Get in there and get wet. If there was ever a time for yet another stupid “Yacht Rock” joke or mention, get yer jabs in now. Yawn.

I don’t know shit about sailing. Seems a little bourgeois to me. My dad however, he had a blow-up raft he called the “SS Kowalski” that he’d anchor and float in. Had a little floating cooler too, for his beers. Intermediate Lake. So, hell, that’s a little seafaring for ya.

Thanks, Cory. Appreciated. A treasure trove of beautiful barnacles from the high and low seas!

TONIGHT, PORTLAND: A pinewood derby. Over at NemoDesign! Fun. It’s called the PDX Pinewood Derby. We’ll be there with our car, testing our mettle on the track. Be there, you scrubs!

THAT KENTUCKY POSTER IS NOW SHIPPING: We’re calling it “Kentucky Kollected.” Get one. A tribute to sonofabitch Dale and all his wild kin in and around Olive Hill.

I used to sail El Toros. Their logo looks like a wang.

Shrimper definitely has one of the coolest ones.

That is the best damn intro paragraph I have read in long time. “snarky little mouthbreather”. Thank you for that, my vocabulary thanks you as well.

Hope Spokane treated you well!
