Ranking R.E.M. Album Covers I was inspired by a friend’s Facebook thread about underrated late-period R.E.M. albums to create a ranking of the band’s album covers. Aesthetically. A ranking covering all their studio recordings from 1982 to their breakup in 2011. The ranking doesn’t include compilations or live albums, although I am including Dead Letter Office because […]

Summer is (finally) here. Time for fewer clothes, more colorful drinks, and poolside jams. To that end here comes a brilliant new Magic Tape from DJ/producer The Magician. It’s an ace new slate of indie disco and house in a more chill mode and it is going to sound straight up perfect at the beach […]

eipic-splash On having several of my posters featured in the Irish TV show Eipic

In the summer of 2015, I received an email out of the blue from a production company in Ireland working on a 6-part TV series about “a creative bunch of teenagers who get together to start a band.  The group embark on a journey out of their rural town and onto a national stage.” It […]

Rs Our Band Could Be Your Typography Lesson

13, Broke, Curious, Bored The moment is indelibly burnt into my memory. Every Sunday morning, I’d pick through the day’s edition of the Omaha World Herald, digging through sooty inserts and box store circulars to more or less fixate on the comics, entertainment section, the ads. What I ultimately was after were the record store flyouts: rows […]

dazed-and-confused-featured Dazed and Confused this weekend at midtown's first bike drive-in

Last summer, I approached the good folks at LowBrau about possibly setting up a bike drive-in in the spirit of ones I’d read about in Austin and LA. The plan: show a classic film outside where people can bring their bikes or just walk in, get beer vendors, have a DJ and make it an event. […]
