Default The Run, The Party, The Book...

Very nice, Ryan. I'm patiently waiting to see pics from the run and NOT so patiently waiting for the book to arrive.

Viva la HAMB.

4 miscrients set off on a journey to the Home land of bloodshed and nobility.%hours on a cramped winged bird 1 hour of twisted turns on a never ending road frought with peril and into a small box at the end of a distant road in rural Texas we arrived. Roadworn and weary we stepped into the lair. ..........

Amazing things were happening inside, 4 men welcomed us as we opened some of mexicos finest and sat down to count. I was asked what my toughest were, and I said Ive never seen it cause The Burn was hogging it the entire way. so I sat down to read and critique. ....I was not prepared for what I saw that day . It was obscure fresh to a world of stagnant behavior (cloning of the old and regurgitation) fresh ???? It was a new take on what so many had done before. after the first story I flipped through the photography to give my professional 2 cents. I wanted to save the rest of the book for a later date to read in lea sure with my cigar,rocks glass of whisky and my trusty 45.

amazing sheer art in literary form . nothing I had ever seen before , yet it was familiar in so many ways.

My 2 cents turned into a penny as i conveyed most of my feelings to the men in the room. Many in the art world try for what you will see , its no easy feat and it takes a trained eye to carve it out in a new way .....

Ryan John and Jeff............... you have done just this ..... the hard work and offering will not go without its just deserved.

Thank you to everyone I met in my ol home state and good to catch up with all that I knew before . see you at the roundup

I have about 1/5 of all the books we printed in the shop right now. Out of those, I've shipped most of the Alliance pre-orders and will be packing and shipping all week. I should have the rest of the inventory in by late this week and the packing will continue.
