    Field Notes: America the Beautiful Edition from Coudal Partners on Vimeo.

    Draplin and the DDC are at it again. They've just released the Spring 2013 edition of Field Notes brand notebooks. This limited edition (part of the Colors series) version has been dubbed, America the beautiful, and from first looks the imagery selected and design of the small pocket journals live up to the name. This edition was painstakingly crafted as the group worked with their printer to purposely re-create the mis-registered and dulled effects of the originals. Check out the site for a much more in-depth description of their process.

    This edition might be, to us, the most “Draplin-esque” version they've done so far. Aaron's love of the classic farm notebook, the mid-western work ethic and his unswerving love of this country come shining through from the moment you see these little dandies. You can pick yourself up a set of three (which come bundled with a specially designed decal) from the Field Notes website.

  • Schlafly Unleashes New Macro Brewery: 21st & Locust #LetsDoThisThing

    / Comments (0)

    So we arrive at April 1st with the beer world witnessing great change. In the past few years the multi-national light lager brewers, led by Anheuser Busch InBev, SAB Miller and Molson Coors have recognized the need to go beyond light lager and have created craft beers of their own like Shock Top and Blue Moon. They have avoided linking these beers to their heritage brands by creating breweries that don’t exist. Their “Argo like” creations have been very successful. To that we say, “Bravo, gentlemen.” Thus, Schlafly Beer has taken the unprecedented, yet self-evident, step of founding 21st And Locust Brewing Company® , the largest capacity light lager brewery in the world… 150 years in the past.

    Loving the jabs at one of our most despised "local" beers that is all about applepiesuperbowlcountry­music freedom. Production level could step it up from the iPhone camera they are apparently usi... OH WAIT YOU GUYZ - THIS IS FAKE! LOLZ.

    *Handclaps & Laughtracks*

    Yoooouuu guuuuyyyysssss…

    Check out the rest of their April 1st tomfoolery here:

  • The Original Madman - Documentary on Photographer Bert Stern

    / Comments (2)

    In the unconventional documentary Becoming Bert Stern, the original mad-man photographer reveals himself for the first time. Berts meteoric career began as a mailroom-boy at Look Magazine, where he formed a close relationship with a young staff photographer, Stanley Kubrick. The launch of Sterns career and the Golden Age of Advertising would coincide; with Sterns Driest of the Dry campaign for Smirnoff. This ad would end up selling more vodka than Smirnoff dreamed, making America for the first time a vodka drinking country, and Stern a very successful photographer at the age of 25.

    In 2011 on this blog, I wrote about the diminished value of the news release. Even then, when we were more broadly seeing the sky fall, some out-of-touch old-timers told me I was smoking the pipe.

    Now flash forward to 2013 and the havoc is even more distinctive: Mobile is everything, social sharing is how more people get their news every day, no one watches TV news, reporters have eight beats to cover and no time to report on stories they are interested in, and the list goes on.
