I’m pretty damn proud of this one.
portmantoops asked: Hey man, this is John Thomas, don't know if you remember me from back in the halycon days of Modern Primate, but I just wanted to send you message to see how things were going. I still miss your videos man! I can't believe it's already been a year. I'm not a huge fan of what they did to the channel once you left, although the puppets are kind of fun I guess, and in truth I've only watched a couple of videos. I hope everything is going swell out west, and that Nathan's doing well!
Of course I remember you, John Thomas!
Things are going okay. Whitney and I were married in August, and she recently signed a contract with MIT Press to publish her manuscript in early 2015. It’s a book about Internet Trolls, but really it’s more about how the western tradition is filled with systems that reward violent dominance. It’ll be a good one. Nathan is doing well, although there aren’t nearly enough dog parks so he hasn’t made as many friends here as he had back in New York. As for me, I’ve mostly just been freelancing, still not really sure what I want to do. How are you?
Nixon Murf Watch
Photograph caption dated March 1, 1927 reads, “Authorities today were investigating the death of John Lee O’Brien, 19-year-old Los Angeles youth when he fell from an Ocean Park roller coaster into the sea. The photo-diagram shows the point at which O’Brien fell from the coaster car and the dotted line indicates the path of his plunge of 50 feet into the ocean to his death.”
Judging from the signature loop-the-loop path along that dashed arrow line, I’d say we better have a talk with Family Circus Billy about the “shortcut” he took home from school.

If I understand this correctly, Kevin Spacey, Gary Oldman, and Ben Kingsley acted in an elaborate Keyboard Cat joke during the Oscars, but it was not fun.
Continuing with my design practice, here’s an emblem from Humboldt’s dystopian future.
