Summer has been nice so far. Aside from the usual gig business and family dogpile-action, I've been working a ton, actually feeling useful for the most part, servicing various Willamette valley growers with supplies as well as keeping a keen eye out for systematic flaws that can be neutralized. But, I am off for two weeks starting tomorrow, yay! We've got a few rural and/or family and/or Rock and Roll oriented plans. Glad to blow out of town for A BIT Whizzzzzzzzzzzeeeeeeee.

Check this cool poster that Sean Goblin made for the Underlings - rad! He has a flickr photostream here.

I am burnt out on work this week. I'll be glad when Country Fair madness comes to an end. Every year, tons of folks pile into the parking lot of the organic produce warehouse and load up on anything and everything that isn't tied down - bins of watermelon, pallets of oranges, boxes of pineapple, cherries, peaches, veggies - they pile it into a mish-mash of Mad Max-style hippie caravan machines, pile it high like the Beverly Hillbillies and roll out to Veneta 15 miles away for the biggest dirt-based hippie art/music/bra-free/smells-like-a-wild-pack-of-humans festival that half the population of my town + 30,000 visitors from out of the area go to. I'm mostly glad that I live in an Alternative Community tm but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live somewhere more normal, where the only weird thing that happens is a turtle crossing the road.
