Highly Recommended Reading

If you're not already reading Jeff Kay's West Virginia Surf Report (on online journal of sorts), you're really missing out.

Jeff is originally from this area, but his profession has taken him to many different states. He currently lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and their two sons.

Anyhoodle, when he lived in this area, the Evil Twin worked at one of the coolest record shops around (it's still here - Budget Tapes and Records, although I don't think they sell tapes anymore - LOL). Anyone who truly loved music shopped there and Jeff was a regular customer.

The Evil Twin did art work for the store and designed their ads and different things, so his reputation as a designer was out there. He designed the header for my blog here and later designed the one that is currently at the WVSR. Then, he and Jeff collaborated on the Evil Twin designing t-shirts.

Now, there is a new t-shirt out.
The smoking fish on this shirt is the original smoking fish (not designed by the Evil Twin), but a much beloved icon of the WVSR.

The Evil Twin didn't do much on this design either, he followed Jeff's wishes and voila! A really cool design was born!

Even if you don't want a shirt, please bookmark, follow, subscribe - whatever you need to do to catch the WVSR updates. You won't be disappointed! :-)

And while I'm at it here, may I just say I must be the lamest parent in the county. TODAY is the last day, not tomorrow, as I had thought. AND, it's an early dismissal day at that. How did I miss this information? I think I looked at the school menu and it had the lunch schedule to Wednesday, the 9th, but that is the last day for teachers - not students! So, I need to fling myself in the shower, pick up Buddy, and head out to the Mart of Wal. I was going to go while he was in school today, but DOH! Early dismissal, mom o' the year. LOL.

Happy Tuesday, hooligans!


  1. Schools Out!!! Schools Out!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

  2. My daughter goes to aftercare located at her school. Therefore I never have any frickin clue what days are early dismissal or half days or anything else because she just goes straight there regardless.

    Don't feel Bad Mom!

  3. heheh my girlfriend threatened to make her 5yo stay at school for the second half of the last day as a punishment...

  4. I did the exact same thing with school this year! I thought mine went one day longer than they did plus the last day got out at 10:30! You and I must have missed the same memo!

  5. And that is unacceptable. Cheers to you and the design man!!

  6. Budget may not sell much music any more but it is def an interesting place to visit nonetheless...

  7. I already ordered one. Tell TET I love this new design!!!!! And you, of course.
