Yeah, getting the feeling that either this is permanently back-burnered, or cancelled. Who knows...

wouldn't be the first time, or the second.

I guess the real collaboration is the friends we made along the way.

Just to be clear on The Badger:

I didn't make the photo, have no clue as to where it originated, etc. - I just ran with it as a joke since it could have possibly materialized into something real...

You also have to appreciate that plans can and do quite often change - sometimes due to silly things, sometimes due to more complicated issues we as fans are not privy to. All we can do is take things with a grain of salt, see where things go and what happens (if anything), and be happy when it turns out to be true.

I already know all that, I just like mentioning the Badger thing when I can. Because of how weird that whole thing was in hindsight.

Ah, okay - yeah, it was really weird - why someone would go through that much trouble to fake something (either by creating something like that or photoshopping it together)...

I never asked before but I remember you saying that "someone had already guessed what it was" really  far into the thread. I guess you were just kidding?

i always figured it was just someone who had been tagging and threw some random shit togeter on a table. maybe showing how to surreptitiously tag. pizza box for the stencil. you could even have the bottom of the pizza box be the stencil. ?

No; that was real (and I guess enough time has passed I can mention it)...

Richard had reached out to me about giving away (via an online contest on the site) some of his extra gear - he had loads of extra equipment that was cluttering up his home, and needed to get rid of it, and couldn't go through the hassle of selling it off on eBay, etc. and thought it would be good to go to people that could use it - e.g., budding musicians like yourselves. He suggested perhaps some contest or essay on how you would use the equipment to best use, and then gift it to the ones he felt best articulated that.

Unfortunately, that fell through, and not much more was said about it - I think he ended up hiring someone to help him with it all in the end, but I'm not sure - haven't heard from him in ages.

So now you know!

RE: Badger - what really puzzles me is it looks like the back of shrink-wrapped vinyl LP, with bar code and WARP logo. It also is a professionally-printed image, from an offset printing press unless there is a Photoshop filter or technique to create morie patterns on images.

I assumed the badger design was an older version of the syro artwork. An earlier version that didn't make the cut, or something. Because Richie rather wanted his shopping list printed on the cover, instead of a dead animal. ?

Well you know what they say about assuming.... it turns people into donkeys.

I know more about the badger but I’m sworn to secrecy.

Suffice to say, from what I’ve been told, it’s “something”.

As far as I'm concerned this thread has singlehandedly changed its definition. Now it means:

1. Far away. Intangible. Never going to be a thing, ever.

Filter › Pixelize › Color Halftone, then resize or slightly rotate with nearest neighbor as interpolation preference.

I'd like to question the causal nature of that statement

That shrink wrap is definitely just a layer slapped over the top in Photoshop as opposed to being a physical thing.

Damn, that wouldve been a great competition..i wonder what kind of gear would be considered cluttering up his house..

I imagine he kept multiples of some of the smaller things in case he needed parts or one crapped out on him; he never detailed what he was planning on giving away, just that he had a lot to get rid of and thought this would be a fun way to do so.
