I don't have a ton of experience in the kitchen. I love food, but haven't taken much time to really get into cooking. I've learned a few things from helping my wife cook, reading some cookbooks and articles, and watching Youtube cooking videos, and am really excited to finally try making a few things.
For 4th of July weekend, I decided to try my first racks of ribs. From a young age, I've always been a fan of BBQ ribs, but never tried cooking them until now. My wife's sister makes insanely good ribs, marinated in oyster sauce and lemongrass, so, with those on the table, I knew I had to really bring my A-game if I was going to impress anyone.

What is rap records are actually haunted by the ghosts of the old records that they sample? Did you ever stop to think about that shit? Well guess what... I did. And I made a mix about it. '90s hip hop classics broken down with the original funk and jazz records sampled in them. Enjoy and share!

It's here! We're less than one week away from the start of the 13th annual gigantic music and arts festival in Manchester TN known as Bonnaroo. For the 9th year in a row, we've designed and screenprinted a poster which will be available at the festival merch stands and afterwards in our online store.
From music to camping to arts, there's a little bit of Bonnaroo fun happening inside each of these letters, all designed by our own Mike Davis. The poster was screenprinted in 4 colors on French paper by Sarah Schatz. Can't make it to Bonnaroo this year? Check for it in our online store beginning Tuesday June 17th.

Burlesque-recommended film! If you are at all interested in the art, craft, or trade of hand-painted signs, then we strongly suggest you head over to signpaintersfilm.com to check out the new film from Faythe Levine and Sam Macon. Based on the book of the same name, the documentary covers the techniques, 100+ year history, and personal stories of the world of sign painting. It's an eye-opening and very properly-made film. Watch the movie, read the book, paint some signs!

We have two new mini prints ready to drop in our online store Tuesday, June 3rd at a random time. Based on Baroness artwork from the one and only John Baizley, each of these prints measure 8.5 x 11" and are 2 color screenprints (including metallic gold ink) on bleach-splattered French Nightshift Blue and Steel Grey paper. The bleach effect was created by hand on each print, so no two prints are exactly alike.
$10 each + shipping.
