Cover Art: Industry’s Mini LP and Theosophy

The most remarkable thing about Industry’s Mini LP is the album art. It’s hard not to admire the clear graphical study that has been given to it. What could have otherwise been a simple photograph of the group in period garb has been stripped of it’s essential elements and reduced to pure geometric forms. Cover art designer Norman Moore was perhaps influenced by Piet Mondrian or Theo van Doesburg.

Another DIY Pipe Shelf

There are a few of these floating around out there, but I first got the idea for a bookshelf made of pipes from a friend and fellow Renaissance Man. Rather than matching items from IKEA, or spending a lot of money for quality woodwork, he gave me the idea to use steel pipe and pine for creating a whole wall book shelf. This was to replace a multi section home entertainment center, grossly over engineered with screws, pegs, hinges and particle board. It was purposefully left behind by the previous home owners. I smashed it to a thousand pieces with a ball-pine hammer. It was easier to move that way.

None of us are going to deny what other people are doing.

If saying bullshit is somebody’s thing, then he says bullshit. If somebody is an ass-kicker, then that’s what he’s going to do on this trip, kick asses. He’s going to do it right out front and nobody is going to have anything to get pissed off about. He can just say, ‘I’m sorry I kicked you in the ass, but I’m not sorry I’m an ass-kicker. That’s what I do, I kick people in the ass.’ Everybody is going to be what they are, and whatever they are, there’s not going to be anything to apologize about. What we are, we’re going to wail with on this whole trip.
