draplin This poor man. He lands the part as "Kip" in Napoleon Dynamite, NAILS IT, then has to endure a lifetime of people like me "getting grabby" and what not? A true professional. #patience #poise #largemengrabbingkip Thank you for coming by the DDC booth, @aaronruell! Nice to re-meet you, sir. Such a nice fellow, and man, check out his work! Incredible color, composition and detail. #peoplewhomakecoolthings I am just forever impressed with that little movie. Funny, odd, clever and charming. Think about the movies in yer life you wholeheartedly enjoy. Short list, right? Man, I loved Napoleon Dynamite. #alwaysandforever (Image captured by @leighola77, time travel enthusiast.) 2w

draplin Thank you to the hordes who attended the Portland Bazaar! Another incredible year! Enjoy the goods, Portland! And thank you @leighola77, for so many things, but mainly, enduring. Did it again! #mostcolorfulbooth #ninetysixsquarefeet #ddcmerch #portlandbazaar #2014 #appreciation 2w

draplin We've been burning the candle at both ends. Today, with the @portlandbazaar RAGING, and the DDC Pop-Up Shop CHUGGING ALONG, things were at "DEFCON: Apeshit" all day long. Spread a little thin. We went to our buddy @katebingburt and she enlisted some of her very finest students to help with our HONORABLE MERCH ENDEAVORS. And today, we trusted Kate's expert recommendation with @Jesseweeg. He saved the day, and what you are seeing here is simply this: Me, exhausted, in need of some consoling, thankful for this punk rescuing us. Good work, man! Riches and jewel await. #ddcpopupshop #pdxpopupshops #portlandbazaar #shitspreadthin #burningcandles #consoling #hope #tendermoments #downtownportland #medicineballheads @leighola77 @buchino 2w
