Meanwhile on the Interwebs…

Starting this week, I’ll be posting a weekly roundup of gems I’ve found courtesy of the interwebs. Keep reading below to see what’s in store for this week.

Above is a lovely little video about logos from PBS Offbook. Perhaps the most rewarding and challenging experiences for a graphic designer is creating a well-executed logo or identity piece. View my logo and identity design work.

Today would have been Hunter S. Thompson’s 75th birthday. Rolling Stone has republished HST’s Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 story that originally appeared in the July edition of Rolling Stone in 1973.

Kitty Wells, the “Queeen of Country Music,” died this week in Nashville at the age of 92. Her voice was made for AM radio gold.

Here’s a great ad from team Obama for America criticizing Romney’s time as CEO of Bain Capital. Release your tax returns Mittens, that is unless, you have something to hide

And finally, on a lighter note, here’s a fine little edit from The North Face featuring rider Mike Hopkins. Via Spoke Magazine.

Happy 100 Woody Guthrie.

Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

From Pretty Boy Floyd by Woody Guthrie. Written in 1939 and as relevant as ever.

Wasatch Enduro Park City


Getting some practice laps on Insurgent Trail last Saturday in preparation for next week’s Bell Wasatch Enduro at Canyons Resort. I’m stoked to compete in Utah’s first ever enduro format mountain bike race here in Park City. Although these guys are going to prove to be some stiff competition.

For more on enduro format racing check out the Oregon Enduro Series or Canyons Resort’s blog post on the upcoming Bell Wasatch Enduro where your’s truly is quoted.
