• Defend Denver T-Shirt

    / Comments (8)

    You know how the weed you buy funds some terrorist organization in some far off place? Well, now you can fund a terrorist organization right here in Denver. By buying one of these T-shirts. According to Demver, Westword’s DNC blog, a few local anarchists who are helping coordinate planned disruptions of the convention have been raising funds by selling off these militant tees.

    Grab your gas mask and head down to Fabric Lab next week to buy your own. Or wait for the week of the DNC to get them at a booth that will be set up in Civic Center Park next to slumbering bums.

    We’re a little late to the punch on this one, but Boulder’s design contingent, cypher13, has officially chosen Markham Shitty Kitten Maes as the winner in their contest to create a new mark for their up-and-coming vinyl toy line. Whatever your opinion on the positives and negatives of holding the logo contest itself, we gotta say they got a fantastic product out of the whole deal. Congrats to Shitty and cypher13 on a job well done.

  • The Clink for DNC Protesters

    Since Denver’s jails are already overflowing with creeps and weirdos (wonderful), the city has developed an alternative plan if mass arrests happen at the Democratic National Convention. This northeast Denver warehouse owned by the city has been outfitted with dozens of metal cages made of chain link fence and topped by rolls of barbed wire. Watch out, bad men. Obama comin’ to your town.

    Pedro Saldarriaga is a local artist and freelance designer who has invited you to talk smack about his site and work (or just the opposite, if you feel differently about it). He’s worked on projects for brands like Microsoft and Avaya Telecommunications under shops like Faction Media and Mondo Robot in Boulder. But he’s more proud of his paintings, just don’t tell his clients.

    The Macana Studio site also contains sculptures and paintings by Pedro’s wife, Patricia. Check it out and let Pedro, and us, know what you think.
