So we made some limited edition posters. Which are NOW AVAILABLE!
For awhile now I’ve been seeing this one thing I have said pop up over and over again. It’s been made into gifs, pictures and I’ve seen people tweet it too. I didn’t realize that these words would carry so much weight with so many people. I’ve used this phrase countless times to counteract people who have said that “I was dumb for wanting to do film”. To me the words weighed around 5lbs.
So we wanted to make this into something physical. Something tangible that can be seen.
I don’t make posters often and when I do I always give them away for free.
There is nothing flashy about this poster besides the fact it’s on 15point kraft paper (which is rare for any poster). Much like in “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade” when Indy picks up the Holy Grail and it’s just a plain wooden cup you realize it doesn’t really need to be the bejeweled encrusted goblet because that actually melts everyone’s face.
If I was with any other distributor they would probably make me sell a signed poster like this for somewhere around 25 dollars or an unsigned one for around $20 plus shipping.
Thankfully I do my own thing. I set the prices I would buy myself.
The question of the day is how much?
$10 plus shipping. I know what your thinking that’s enough to get a…well…crap!… not much these days, maybe two gallons of gas and a candy bar.
However unlike the candy bar and two gallons of gas these will be signed! Not that any of you asked for it to be signed but it feels weird not to. To me it’s like an ancient scroll with some wise saying from the Tibetan mountains that is usually signed by some grandmaster. Well I’m no grandmaster but I do have a box of sharpies and that’s the best we freaking got! (Rips open shirt Hulk Hogan style)
Really it’s to satisfy a hidden desire for this poster to be dug up 300 years from now and have people think I’m a Grandmaster.
So let’s go one step further and explain why the price is 10 dollars. (Swirls around computer chair)
First off I’m going to cut the cheese straight up…ok first off that was not the best analogy to start this thing off with but each poster is printed on this wondrous 15pt Recycled Kraft paper which turned out to be about a 1.50 each.
The rest of the $8.50 we’re funneling straight into “The Soda Parlor”.
Now the collective $8.50’s sole purpose is to help take a lot of the burden off of the small business loan we took out to help make this thing a reality.
Not many numbers to crunch. It’s like two bites of captain crunch.
At the end of the day it’s a poster (Ancient Tibetan scroll) “The Soda Parlor” will still happen regardless. One of the many reasons we’re doing this is because we have received swarms of messages from you lovely people who are wanting to help out. Which is incredible, it’s like feeling the whole neighborhood (Mr. Rogers ref.) wants to come to your BBQ.
I’m extremely thankful for the support you continue to give me I only hope when the door swings open to this place you will be standing there to receive the massive hug I’m going to lay down. A Festive Cheers to all!

my father told me once to never date anyone who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that’s some of the best advice anyone has ever given me
I feel like this is a topic I’ve wanted to discuss for a while now. It’s shocking that in today’s age some women are still treated as objects, but then again there are many shocking things about our society. I think a lot of these issues stem from childhood and how a person is raised.
I love everything about this post.
