i think 8 is workin so here ya go:
Fried mac n cheese
Crisco vegetable shortening
Macaroni and cheese (your favorite recipe)
1 cup flour
1-2 cups bread crumbs
Special equipment: Deep-fat fryer
1. Refrigerate macaroni and cheese in a casserole dish overnight. Cut into squares (whatever size you'd like).
2. Dredge mac and cheese squares in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.
3. Drop in a deep-fat fryer and let fry for about 1 minute, or until golden brown.
4. Eat warm!
even better if wrapped in bacon before dredging
I think you've handled the type here better than any of your previous posters. not joking. I'm going home to chat with hot ladies. on ichat of course. 24" monitor oh yeah!!! I got this new record by this great band Red Dons. Former members of the Observers and you should really give it a go. It's oldschool with a little garage action and some interesting song structures. I also just picked up the new issue of Wired magazine. Holy Cow that is one great magazine eh? It's like they are smart with the design and it's not too techy, dig? Another great record that I picked up was this collection of songs by this old punk band MIA. Gooood. and you can get it from eMusic. Which is like the best music-related purchase I've ever made outside of an iPod. Really terrific. Hi Nate.
forcing yourself into a scene and shitting all over it doesn't really make your opinion valid, in my book. and paul, if most everyone on this website thinks your a dick...do you think, maybe, it COULD be you?
I think that part of the very existence of this web site has to do with networking, learning tips and shit from other designers, and general aid to a community of members that share interests (also, there are people like dave that "have nothing to add to gigposters.com). So if you make yourself a doosh right off the bat, how are you helping yourself? My advice?
Shut the fuck up.
Maybe it will help you.
I'm pretty sure some people can fuck up their status on GP no matter how much they try to redeem themselves. You might as well stop talking, Paul. You're like the annoying guy trying to talk his way out of being annoying by using logic, which is just more annoying.
Can't we all (or at least some of us) agree this poster is:
fit's the band,
the print job is rad,
and it's an overall nice poster regardless of who did it.
This isn't grade school. Isn't this site meant for posting and sharing, not passive-aggressive fighting? Opinions are one thing, this is another.
for the record:
my crosshair comparison was half joking.
the other half was reference to dan's
former membership in the band, and the sky reminds me of the sky on one of his posters.
you guys seem sillier when I've been gone for a week.
I do, somebody helped me, now i can help somebody else. that means i bring something to the table. i like to think we all have started at kinko's and then moved on.... because it fun and we all make bad posters which makes good posters better
(disclaimer) now, i know that i'm a haughty arrogant intellectual academic fraud and all that. and i know that my opinion is poison on all levels of discourse on this sight. i also know that everybody on this sight is way cooler than me, especially on the macho hipster testosterone-charged taste scene than me. i know all of this at this pont absolutely. so, i venture forth with an opinion here with great trepidation and something akin to outright fear...
but, all that being said, i gotta say that this is one ICKY gigposter. yeesh.
i love crosshair, i hump his leg whenever i am given the chance, but this looks nothing like one of his posters and even if he did he isn;t the only one in the world that is allowed to do a full color poster of a building or a nature scene. you guys are as fucking stupid as the expresso beans retards.
Heh, funny you say that steve... Dan was way cool in chicago and seeing his work in person was inspiring. I also know that Dan used to play with Jason & Co. so this was sort of a nod to Mr McAdam as well.
I like this - I would LOVE it if you had a tiny sillhoutte of a windmill on the horizon line, or maybe a couple of those newfangled propeller style ones. Would have really tightened up the concept for me and added a little more of a focal point. IMHO of course.
4. I worked the channels on this to ensure an easy, accurately printing print.
The sky is ONLY cyan, and the bottom bit is mostly yellow with a little Magenta and black . I am very confident it will look exactly like this when printed.
Thanks dude. 18" x 24", CMYK.
For months, I was looking for the perfect midwest image to use on this poster. I just felt it would be a great image fora Mag Elec. Co. poster and would ALSO play into this full color kick I've been on lately.
When driving home from FS in Chicago, on RT90 in ohio, I looked out the window and realized the image I was searching for was right outside.
This is said photo, blown up. and prepared for the fine folks at D&L to masterfully screenprint.
