Record Store Day

I guess I should've mentioned this earlier. Not that it would've changed anything, but today, April 16th, is the official Record Store Day.
I suggest you celebrate by buying my new 4 ACES RECORD FRAME!, or the previously mentioned LP Room Divider.

Since we're on the subject, I pulled up these images of my custom 45 Adaptors, for all those guys that lost the one that came with their 1200's. They were made by fellow bad-ass Al Harpham in beautiful downtown Fresno California. I did his logo too (the chick on the scooter), which is way too small on his website.
Note the excellent packaging, which includes the expertly drawn self-portrait which I, well... drew of myself.
On the back of the packaging, I wrote my manifesto. If I ever find it again I might reprint it here.
Fortunately, and unfortunately, the first run sold out quickly, and we never did another.

It's true. I'm bad-ass.

Now who needs something cool built?

Beverly Hills Cops

I'm so behind. That should be the title of my book. This show came and went already, and I never mentioned it. Anyhow, I had my room divider in this cool show in Beverly Hills, sponsored by EcoFirstArt, Elle Decor Magazine, and Country Floors. There was some great stuff.

Here's the flyer (above).

By now I'm sure you're all familiar with my room divider, but just in case, here's some more photos from the show:

Incidently, a funny thing happened on the way to pick up my room divider.

I'm driving through Beverly Hills, minding my own business, when all of the sudden this cop (in a truck bigger than mine) tries to squeeze between me and the curb to make a right turn. Apparently he's usually on a bike because he didn't make it.
BAM!!... Mirror tag.
I look over to see a genuinely shocked cop, giving me the "Are You Okay?" gesture. I couldn't help but laugh, and I waved him on, with the "I'm Okay" gesture.
He gestured back "I'm pulling over".
I couldn't believe it. I'd been waiting for this moment since I passed my first driving test. We pulled around the corner and to the curb. I sat in my truck as the officer approached my door.
"License and Registration please", I said. He laughed, thankfully.
"Are you Okay?", he said, as his partner looked over my broken mirror.
"I'm fine", (still laughing a little) "and my mirror was already broken."
"Are you sure? Do you want somebody to take a look at this?" he asked.
"No. Don't worry about it. I'm gonna let you off with a warning this time." He laughed again.
Then I said, "Here's what you can do... Remember me. Remember my truck. If something ever goes down in Beverly Hills, and I need help, I'm calling you."
He laughed again, and said "You got it."

Cops are so much better in my adult life, now that I wear grown-up clothes and I no longer look like I'm up to something (which I'm not).
