cat power


Big fans of Cat Power here at the 10engines kitchen, and no particular newsflashes here, but a couple of nuggets from the internets; that first record sleeve of The Greatest was envisioned by Chan Marshall as mirrored so you could see yourself with the gold necklace on... an instant confidence boost, like it.

Sidenote: Chris Isenberg of No Mas talking about his first creation, a Cassius Clay shirt. Interesting read.

It's been so fun to read! Keep it up. Let's get cracking on some 1 year anniversary bandanas. August should be slow for me.
