(Rough Trade; 1985)
Give this sticker to a toll booth operator, a pit crew worker. Someone who values the corh-rec speed, change, and personality; someone who still likes their rivets and punches precise.
Fourth Drawer Down
(Situation 2; 1981)
Give this sticker to a monster truck operator, a mech-mounter, a Russian Doll. Someone who relishes in exoskeletons upon exoskeletons; someone for whom Feng Shui is a warm, safe promise.
(Rough Trade; 1980)
Give this sticker to one of Hannibal’s elephants. Someone who needs comfort in the cold; someone with thick skin; someone who only makes noise when necessary.
Why Not Me
Give this sticker to a bartender, a hurdler. Someone who thinks dexterity is as important as endurance; someone who cleans first and asks questions later; someone who likes open spaces.
(Force & Form; 1986)
Give this sticker to the Angel of Death as supplication. For it knows not what it does; it is nothing more than a machine after all.
(On-U Sound; 1982)
Give this sticker to a test signal generator, an oncologist. Someone who will analyze for days; someone who would fill the troughs of the world with cream soda; someone who feels self-important.
Blues for Pedro Arcanjo
Give this sticker to a repair shop fixer, a desert wanderer. Someone who sees the diversity of life in a series of very similar guts; someone who can navigate with no clear sense of dih-recion.
Give this sticker to Janet Jackson. Obvs.
Scientist Wins the World Cup
Give this sticker to a dredger, a weekend yard sale enthusiast. Someone who likes to put in the effort; someone who searches the deep; someone who thinks there’s always a little clean up that can be done later.
Give this sticker to an origami expert, a meteorologist. Someone who sees the shape in silence; someone who organizes the ethereal; someone who draws on skin to map out unfinished ideas.
