Michael Nau of Page France does the ‘Said the Guests’ over at STG.
The Light Footwork have started a cool, Jones Soda-ish contest on their website. If you send in your photos, they might be featured on the front page of their website. However, the real prize is that they’re going to pick their favorite to be the cover of their tour EP.
The Rentals are working on a new album. Return of the Rentals, indeed!
Rivers talks a lot. Also, did you know Make Believe has sold almost 800,000 copies already? That’s…that’s just wrong. (via LHB)
Locksley updated their tour journal with a funny Lexington entry. I was even mentioned. Tee hee.
Hanging Halloween dummy wasn’t a dummy…
So Chris at Eenie Meenie has made my day once again. He kept asking for my mailing address, and I kept forgetting to send it to him. Well I finally got my act together, and got my package in today. He mailed me a Ulysses promotional poster signed by all the members of the band. At the risk of turning into one of those self-indulgent blogs, here’s a funny photo of me posing with my new prize.
Now here’s where I need your help. This makes like, the umpteenth screen printed poster that I have. But see, I don’t really have a way to display them without damaging them. Framing them is out, because that costs a bit of money. I thought about using push pins or those sticky things, but that’s going to damage it, and plus I’ll be moving out in a semester. So if any of you are aware of a cheap alternative to framing that won’t damage the screen prints, please bring it to my attention. I’ve got some Low, Animal Collective, Ullysses and other posters that are just begging to be protected for future generations of little Matts (which at this rate will never be born).
On a related note, Eenie Meenie is running a Blue-Eyed Son contest over at their site. Prize packs and customized surfboards, oh my!
