My last computer just wasn’t cutting it anymore performance-wise so I’ve spent the weekend building a new one. As a result, not much bloggery going down, but I’ll be back on it tomorrow. So for now, here’s a random picture of some sort of bad-ass record player. I’ll do a post on Photoshop / Media Production performance as it relates to hardware configurations once I’m done with the new machine.
Another one from the Dream Chimney "Sleevery" archive. Loving the type, I would call that Avant Garde if it weren’t for the rotated ‘e’. Can anyone identify this or is it a custom job? Let us all know…
Not sure what’s going on in this photo, but it’s incredible and the colors are just about perfect. Wish I had some more background on this piece but perhaps someone can fill in the blanks.

My friend and yours, Dusty Brown, recently covered Elliott Smith’s "Can’t Make a Sound" for a tribute album and it turned out incredible, dare I say, better than the original. You be the judge, have a listen below.

Incidentally, the last two images above are of the wall in Los Angeles that was used by photographer Autumn de Wilde as the backdrop for the Figure 8 album cover. Since Smith’s death it has become a sort of memorial for fans.
At least someone is getting packaging design right these days. These shots are from the 100% Chocolate Cafe in Tokyo. I somehow missed this while I was there, would have been nice to bring some home.
Came across the blog of Sarah France today, really liking how she keeps it old school with the hand drawn concepts. Long live Pen & Ink! She also has some cool photos along with a really clean page layout.
I really wish I spent more time with the pencil, I have become pretty lazy over the years. It’s come to the point where writing a full page of text makes my hand hurt so bad that I have to stop. Pretty sad, but I guess with computers there’s less and less need for handwriting.
