This morning when Shawn, one of our designers/printers/all around awesome guys woke up, he wanted to make a difference in the world. So he started a new recycling program. We have a lot of old junk that is probably valuable to someone taking up spaces on our shelves. Not wanting to throw it away but also not wanting it to be here, he pulled up Google Maps and started zooming in. Eventually the scroll wheel stopped moving, and an address in the Kansas City suburbs showed up.
Then he printed a shipping label, and gave it to Chuck, our UPS guy, who happily sent it south. So if you happen to clean chimneys in the KC area, we are sorry about that.
But please put the contents to good use. Thanks,
- The Management.
Look for these posters around town soon. Shawn just finished them up.

You can’t see the scissors, but that is Jon’s “Trimming around the ears” face. I don’t think they thought anyone was watching, I also doubt they swept up afterwards.
We just opened up our summer intern application this week. Last year we caught a lot of flack for having an “unpaid” internship. People called us greedy bastards for making ourselves rich off the backs of students. In response to that we just laughed and rolled around on our piles of money.
Just kidding about that; we gave our last unpaid intern a full time job, and we still haven’t figured out where we put our pile of loot so we haven’t been able to roll around on those comfy golden coins.
We can’t really promise a job at the end of it, but our intern will probably learn something useful. Will the intern have to do some pretty crappy stuff? Probably, but the rest of us do too. Ask any other small business, there isn’t a whole lot of glamour.
On to the single upside of the gig: We do a lot of interesting stuff around here, and generally have a lot of fun while we are doing it. We get to work with a lot of people doing a lot of cool things around the city, we tend to try to associate ourselves with people who make things happen.
If you think you have what it takes to come hang out for the summer, send us a resume and some work you have put together. We are bracing for a busy summer, we’d love to have you along for the ride.
