Thank you, Field Notes

Yesssssss! Another nice package showed up at my door, this time goodies from Field Notes (a DDC/Coudal product). Now let me start off by saying, I am a fairly early adapter in terms of new technologies and gadgets. I twitter from my Blackberry, and I’ve even updated my Facebook status using my Wii (just once, because I could). But there is no better feeling than jotting down ideas in a good old notebook with your favourite pen or pencil. I love it. Field Notes sent me over a stack of little notebooks. Beautifully simple packaging. Blank, lined, graph paper, several styles. Pencils, rubber bands, even a calendar. Thanks you guys, they will be put to good use!

    I find it remarkable that you receive such exciting gifts, it gives a gentleman ideas. I just recently found your very nice site and I’ve been going back over past entries and besides the above I saw the sunglasses recently and the Hush Puppies shoes not too long ago. It really makes me consider starting my own similar website in the hopes that I myself might one day receive such benefits. It would be too hard though, I figure after further thought. I have a different type of website already and that only requires a monthly update and yet still I find difficult there, so keeping on top of a site such as yours is near unimaginable.

    Anyway, to cut all my thoughts short here: your site is really great, you’re surely deserving of the gifts for all your hard work, and these Field Notes items are very nice looking, particularly the calendar.

  • oh snap, these really neat. hmm i might have to look into it.. reminds me i got to go pick up some new note books loosing space in paper…

  • Congrats on more free shiz!

  • Field notes would be great if they weren’t graph paper.

  • ^ they’re not all graph paper – they come in blank sheets, lined, or graph

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
