My superlative gravel road Walkman soundtrack since 1989, I've almost certainly logged more hours listening to Faith No More than any other man-made sound. Last week I was finally able to fulfill the dream and witness the band tear through a brilliant set at Concord Music Hall in beautiful and historic Chicago, Ill. The experience will be engraved in my mind for the remainder of my days. Thanks at length to @ipecacrecordings @oldmanmoss and the members of @faithnomore for the generosity and hospitality and to @lebutcherettes for the unbelievable opening set. See you soon, gentlemen...

Black on black engraved one-off phone case via @twigcaseco - Central Minnesota based and amazing. I can't recommend these Richlite cases enough, they hold detail like a champion, naturally darken as they are handled over time and are made of the same surface material I've abused for years in outdoor skateparks across the upper Midwest. A Black Osprey x Twig collaboration is forthcoming, watch the skies... Pictured here used as a paperweight as I prepare for
