New cool stuff happening all the time. Work is great - I love the business that comes along with the advent of warm weather in Oregon. I get to deal with several different farmers, all of them eccentric and most of them funny as hell, as I put together their supply orders. I make reams of labels for organically grown vegetables and send them off to farms. I eat and sample fruits, vegetables and melons all day long and have a laugh with my friends about every 15 seconds, listen to tons of good and bad music, exchange emails with pictures of vegetables in various states of dying and/or rotting, or "blowing" as we say. I've also been digging my new tape recorder, a vintage JC Penney/Panasonic mono tape deck that really weighs a lot and is so much coole than an ipod. I've been making all kinds of recordings and playing back vintage punk tapes from high school and college. I love the way obsolete technology is so cheap right now and yet well-made and built to last. I'll post some pics and videos soon! Must go on walk now.
