Now Playing: AGainst Me! Tonight We're Gonna Give it 35%
One thing that sucks about doing Deliverance is paying for stickers that I just give away. I might as well just give everyone fifty cents when I see them, it would be easier. There is one exception. Cory Martin, the red-wigged ripper from Owosso, always insists on giving me a couple dollars when he asks for stickers. Thanks Cory. I don't expect it and usually don't accept it, but I have and will. I love stickers but making them does bum me out, especially when the non-existent "team" complains that the stickers are too big or they don't like the colors or whatever. Here are the "new" stickers. I made quotes around new because these are old graphics (seems like we would have made these sooner, doesn't it?)
The D logo is one of the very first Deliverance logos and the bird logo was created by FOD Sean Rakos. They are a bike friendly size, fitting nicely on a head and/or seat tube.
Note the Moon stickers. I actually paid over twenty dollars for a set of those on Ebay. Keeping in mind what I just stated about paying literally hundreds of dollars for stickers that I just give away, the notion of paying money for stickers, just because they are cool, is just ridiculous. To be honest, I don't even really know what Moon makes. I know they make hot rod car parts. Wheels, I believe. All I know is that I liked that logo when I was a real young kid (in the 70s!) and always have. I was so stoked when I got them in the mail yesterday. Ask Davey, he was here. I wonder if Dave Moon knows about Moon hotrod parts? Oddly enough, he was at Modern last night, but I hadn't fabricated my bootleg Moon stickers yet. Dave is rad and usually wins the Kzoo contests. Nice series of segways tonight, eh? Please note the flyer below regarding the upcoming Kzoo Mini Ramp champs event. Apparently Animal accidentally sent two boxes of prizes, so at least we'll have some sweet Animal stuff and free Deliverance stickers to give out for prizes.
Going back to my Moon stickers. Since I paid so much for them, I didn't want to actually use them on my bike, knowing that I'll probably paint it or decide I don't like it or something ridiculous, so I scanned the stickers and made fake ones, taking elaborate measures using various materials I had around here to ensure an authentic look. I need to start getting more sleep. Or something. If you're wondering what Biltwell is, wonder no more. They are friends of mine and they make some sweet motorcycle parts. Here's another ridiculous one. I ordered one of those El Diablo tee shirts on that site last Wednesday night (late) and on early Thursday, UPS brought me a Merry Xmas box with a couple El Diablo shirts for me and my wife, along with stickers. I don't even think they had received my order yet. They must have crystal balls. They even sent the exact size and color that I had ordered. Fuckin' weird, dude. I really do need sleep.
