    “State of the Studio:” Part Two

    Annoy Your Friends

      I think the very first thing that we’re finding out is that this is going to be a much longer process than we could have ever imagined! It’s the lining up all of the little parts of the build out that is so damned hard.

      “Not mounted but in the studio and waiting on carpet.”

      Here’s a picture of the new studio console desk that we’re going to be mounting to the wall after the carpet does or does not get installed. Our friend and fellow listener Drew Montes made this by hand and it’s frigg’n amazing!!! It’s everything that we could have hoped for in a new, larger, studio console. This will be taking the place of our current, cheap, IKEA desk that we’ve been using for the past 6 years. Truth be told, it has been one of the best pieces of furniture that I’ve ever owned. One of the best 70 dollars that I’ve ever spent. (If IKEA and it’s founder Ingvar Kamprad are reading this, we will gladly pimp your products. Total sellouts.)

      Everything is sort of in a holding pattern as we find out what’s going to happen with our custom carpet. The plan is to get this amazing print – printed on said carpet and then get it installed before we set any furniture in there. If we can pull it off – it’s going to be amazing but there’s still the offset chance that we’re being a bit to advantageous with our idea. Gotta shoot for something, right? We’re trying to make this studio the best in town and that makes me very, very proud.

      Right now Tom is out arguing with a German woman and trying to rent us a storage unit to hold all of the “gear” that we’ve acquired over the past 6+ years. Plus, our merch selection is just WAY to big to sit in the garage anymore. I can barely get my car in there so this is the next logical step.

      I hope that you guys enjoy the update or lack there of and we really can’t wait to bring the show to you from there! Amazing days are upon us folks!

        Are you guys going to have a store front to sell merch?

          As of right now, we are not. But there might be times during the year that we do that. We’re going to have to think that one through. Merch will no longer be handled by us.

        Looks like they called Steve McGutney from Waterfountain.quench.

        That carpet is fucking sick! I would drop some coin to have a 2×3 or 3×5 rug of that print. Would be some awesome merch. If there’s any extra offer it up to the bdms, we would eat that shit up… “Have a piece of the studio carpet!”

          Yep. The Brains did us right. We just don’t know if it’s going to be possible to pull it off. We’re working on it – we’ll see.

        The water fountain looks tacky. Can it be removed?

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          Already has been. HAHAHAHA… Come on son. You KNOW me! – d

        Looking great, guys! I heard about the Studio Founding sponsorships too late – unless you are re-opening that window?

          As of right now, it is closed. Apologies.
