road trips and mix tapes

so, i'm living in a friends basement and traveling a lot, which is not conducive to making and doing. someone seriously needs to start a diy workshop that i can go to... seriously. well, until i get around to opening a workshop i've been busy with other passions (the aforementioned traveling, public transit, and coffee shops). i just got back from a road trip from colorado to toronto, ottawa, and montreal. there is already a plan in the works for a trip to california at the end of june and perhaps another journey to the northwest in july. how am i paying for all this? well, i've been doing some freelance design work, which has actually been really enjoyable and lets me travel or sit in a coffee shop all day. i eventually need to get around to actually finding more work, but for now i'm happy to make some money and work on something that i like. by the way, there are some super secret screen printing projects in the works, but i am keeping a lid on it for now. in the meantime, check out some of these records, these are my favourite albums of 2010 so far:
