Les Newman’s is a great store in Bend, Oregon that carries authentic, outdoor gear from PNW clothiers. This place is really cool, and the owner Greg seems like a real nice guy. For sure a cool local business, just east of downtown Bend, across from Les Schwab. I tried convncing him he needed a new website, but he’s got better things to do. lol. Genuine, for sure. Check it out if you get a chance. :^)
I picked up a kick ass Ben Davis Jacket, nice. But more importantly, there’s a killer wood carving inside! As you walk in, make sure to check out the gnome meets santa, meets dwarf, meets shoe cobbler – the detail is amazing and the craftsmanship is incredible. Made locally for Greg.
WinterFest is here! Just dropped off my T Shirts for the event. Cool Yeti Illustration concept comes alive w/ the help of Chuck Moser. Pick one up at The WinterFest site or come on down the The Bend WinterFest this weekend and grab one at the info booth.
That’s as far as I got in the past 3+ months or so when attempting to post to this blog. Between, my new affliction with my iPhone’s camera, twitter, flickr, posterous, tumblr, facebook, oh and designing, developing and having a life. Time has let this one slip.
I look forward to continue posting here – wrongdude.com same name, new server (self hosted). Onward.
2009 was good. Met new peeps, started new projects and had a blast with the familia for sure, look forward to more adventures in the coming year.
The Forest Service has a cool (but kinda buggy) “Eagle Cam” set up right in our own Deschutes National Forest. Very cool – but even cooler – if you tune in now, you will see a new eaglet! Super cool. Check out the live video here: www.fs.fed.us/outdoors/naturewatch/eaglecam.html
Incredible Winemaker’s dinner last night at the Jackalope Grill with Mark Vlossak from St. Innocent Vineyards. Our favorite was the duck, followed by the prawns. The venison, and mussels were just as tasty. The wines were paired very well and both the 94 & 98 Pinot Noir were a great finish to the four hour evening. A great time with Tim and Kathy once again.
The vast amount of creativity out there never seizes to amaze me. :^) Check out through-you.com.
There is just sooo much out there that is pretty much all public domain – it’s getting interesting for sure.
