Giant Robot Magazines needs your help. I'm pretty sure they could have sold the magazine for tons of money to some corporate publishing company many of times. That would have also defeated the purpose behind an indie magazine.
Probably some of your favorite artist and bands got their start up from this magazine. Always been a fan of it as it helped me discover tons of music/art and life lessons as well.
Every little bit counts. So if you have some extra cash, why not help out a magazine that helps your future favorite artist.
Not only are you donating to a great cause, but you get some really neat stuff in return!

Best Coast

Finally got to watch some highlights of last weekends Monaco Grand Prix. Webber definitely killed it.
Also stumbled on a Best Coast video that uses the 60's movie Grand prix(Monaco) although its an unofficial video, I think its pretty damn official.

Heres the original trailer for the movie

2nd place 1st rally

Last weekend I got to travel to Oregon with one of the cars we've been building. Not bad for its first time out. 2nd place usually means first loser but not in this case, a lot of cars dont even finish the rally. Its was a good time with good people. It was really cool that a crew of 15 people who barely know each other got a long so well. I think it played huge part in the great end result for the team. It was nice doing race support again.... But rally racing is no joke... A lot of long nights and hard work. We got lucky the weather held up nicely.

Frank Frazetta RIP

You probably heard the news and know more about him than I do. But Seeing all of his artwork gives me nice sense of nostalgia. I was about 5 when my brother and I were into D&D... well I cant actually claim I was into the game since i didnt really understand how to play it. What really caught my interest was the characters and lead figurines we used to get. If we were lucky my mom would take us to The Legionnaire in Kalihi where we would buy figurines, books and puzzles. The puzzles are how I learned of Frank Frazetta. Not sure if my parents kept the puzzles... A few of them were laminated with resin and framed. But i do know i have a box of lead figurines in my old room in Hawaii. Its funny how i just read that Alyasha had the Death Dealer figurine too. I also had it but when i bought it i thought it was Sauron from lord of the rings. Paint job really horrible.... I was 5 or 6!

Just picked up a new/old book bag from my buddy Ted. Jyumoku is his new project. Its been a while since hes been hunting around and collecting quality reclaimed materials. Really dig the concept of the brand. I know, I know, its not the first time anyone has used recycled materials, but every Jyumoku bag is unique in it own way. One-offs with some material you may never see again. A lot of character in these. Check out the site he may have a couple more in the store?
