Some Things are so european and still...

...I don't hate it on principle like I do...well...most things that are so european. In fact I love Herman Dune more even than Jonathan Richman, and he is american! Hmmmm I long for the days of US isolationism and the ease of Ceasar's Roman Law! Days when ice cream men sold Grape Anthony Candy and I could lay by the public pool in Ft.Meade Maryland listening to that song that had the hook that went "I am a creature of the night!" then went into the "Oh OHHHHOh OHHHH oh OH Oh Oh OOOH OH OHHHHH oh OHHHH"...wait where was I going with this? HERMAN DUNE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:


If they have any left get on it.

They have had them up for 4 or 5 days now I think and I KNOW they sold out in three last time. Grab it like free Shoes...like money on the ground...like whoa.
click on the skull I'msayin.


right now, this second I am wearing Cross Color Cape and a Hyper Color T...

Look I missed the memo that said that it was okay for us to start designin' and wearing gay german back pack colors from the 80s-90s ...

Rememebr how they used to try and rock these horrible pastel Pinks Blues and Greens? I do...it's not okay. NO! I think that BAPE and a few others are trying to make us soft like those eurosissys.

come one guys for real...COME ON.

I mean honestly stick with Black and White...Stick with hellominor.com

Thanks for the help D!

Shon Tomlin, how cool is this guy?

I was working the door at the Doug Fir Lounge (where yes I won Hottest stripperrrrr....I mean Nicest Bouncer.) and This gentleman heard me mention the new Christian Hosoi film and how I would like to see it. He asked his friend and co-worker if they had a copy, he said he would get one and then 2 months later in the mail from the Desk of Shon Tomlin, The Pres of Head Honcho and Coolness I get 1 DVD about Hosoi and a hand written note saying "I didn't forget about you!" he didn't Shon THANKS...countless NIKE and ADIDAS people go screw yer'selfs and you're free shoes.( NOT YOU J!)

You da man Shon!

What UPSO yo?

I like. I mean It is straight forward and clean and you can tell someone ain't dumb and just drah'in pictures. UPSO has picked up a news paper or is at least savy to the goings on around himself and allows that to sting him and duely trnaslates into his work...WHAT did that just make annnnnNNNY sense at all? For real son? I gotta learn to self edit that kinda jibba jabba. BUT NOT TODAY!

Is it on? Like Donkey Kong my friend!

It's Go Time!

Do dooodDOOO DO do do do do dooooo It's The FINAL COUNT DOWN

Come on down - you’re a final four nominee in the 2006 BarFly Awards! Portland has voted, and you made the final cut! Now all you have to do is WIN. The final voting takes place live and in person at the BarFly Awards at The Rialto (529 SW 4th) on Sunday, October 15th (9pm-1am), so all you need to do is show up and work the room, kiss some hands and shake some babies. To help you stuff the ballot box, you’ll have your own personal guest list of 20 friends and fans - you just need to email me their names by noon on Sunday, and you’ll be all set (they’ll need to show I.D. at the door, and the door person will have their names on the list).

We’ll be passing out the official nomination packets tomorrow, which will also include paper invitations for your passing out pleasure. If we can’t track you down, and you haven’t received your packet by Sunday, just send us your guest list via email, and you’ll be good to go!

Just about everything’s on the house at the 2006 BarFly Awards - free booze, beer and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of our generous sponsors. Dressing to impress is encouraged, but there is no dress code. Be sure to prepare an acceptance speech!

Please reply back to me to let me know you’ve received this, and whether or not you’ll be able to make it. You can still win if you’re not present, but it’s not as much fun, so I do hope you’ll be able to make it (or, at least send a native american girl to pick up your award for you, in absentia). If you have any questions, shoot. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Want to see who else made the cut? I’ve included the hot list, below. Make sure you check it twice, some of you are nominated in multiple categories!

Good luck! You’re already a winner, to me. And speaking of winners, the 2006 BarFly Awards are brought to you by the fine folks at Tarantula, Polar Ice, Wiser’s, Miller, Bishops, The Rialto, and BarFly!

Your pal,

Jen Lane

"I constantly hone my craft!" - David Choe, artist, slope

Because I loves ya'll and you would enjoy it here is a telling look into how I work. How I get down with the amusing drawings you see around here. It started the other night when I said I was "Highfive'in, testify'in" to a Beaverton Bridge and Tunnel Taint Bag Team Captain(in an abacrombie Hurly Uniform). At home I have a file called T- Ideas I write down my earth shattering a-list material gifts to mankind ideas I get. That way when I wanna draw something or translate a gag idea to a design I dip into it...SO after all that crap I just said, this is the original note for that design:

"High Fives and Testifies!
bible and hands smackin jesus BOOYAH"

I think on some levels its better than the final. Lets face it anything that says Smack, Jesus, and BOOYA in rapid sucsession is golden from jump st. and you KNOW it!!
