It's time to give thanks during our 32nd episode of Adventures in Design, “Gleaming The Cubism".  We've whipped up a delectable episode for your eardrums to feast upon this Thanksgiving.  James, Billy, and Mark share what they are thankful for this year, making everyone feel good from top to bottom. 

 

Mark gets nostalgic over missing out on Dairy Queen Blizzards this year, and he reveals that he has an ongoing issue with sprinkles.  (It's a lifestyle choice, really.) He can, however, get into the sport of arguing.  James and Billy try to convince Mark that it's okay to watch TV show previews, but he's just not that interested in what they have to say.  Rather, our outspoken host bluntly reveals his stance on bullying, and how it helped shape him into becoming the World's Best Podcaster as he is known today.

Our guest is the prolific artist known for his legendary body of skateboard graphics, Don Pendleton.  Don began skateboarding in the mid eighties at the age of 14, and has been a part of skateboarding culture for over 20 years, 15 of which have been dedicated to producing skateboard art.  Mark and Don talk about the culture of action sports and the connection between art and skateboarding.  The Do-It-Yourself approach was a homemade outlet for creativity, offering up fresh opportunities to develop new tricks, to make music in bands, and more.

As you prepare to gather around your family this Thanksgiving, pull up a chair next to your uncle Buck, put on your headphones, and share your holiday with us instead.  Our shop talk will get you into the spirit of Thanksgiving as Mark tells a story about committing food adultery. And as many of you get a few days off work, the work for us hardly ever ends.  James discusses what its like working on the weekends, and how there's solidarity in numbers.  Plus, we've got a grand announcement at the end of the show that you won't wanna miss!  May the future be with you...

Episode 30 "XXX" Featuring Matt Taylor

AID XXX is cumming your way!  This is our filthiest, raunchiest episode yet.  We talk about jerkin' it, discuss porn preferences, and visualize those wide-angle money-shots in our thirtieth episode of Adventures in Design.  This invasive and provocatively bold episode is like none like we've ever had before.  We promise that it will get your creative juices flowing (though, we make no apologies for any other juices). Billy shares his experiences with accidental porn at work, and we discover Mark's pavlovian reaction to sexually explicit materials.  Is James Flames wearing pants?  (We'll never tell.) 


From across the pond, we are so pleased to welcome our friend, Matt Taylor, feather hat and all.  We talk design, clients, and the WWF. (You know, wrestling. The real stuff. Not some animal bullshit.)
We're so excited to be back in the studio that we just don't want this episode to ever end.  The musk is seeping through the airwaves. Join us for an extended listen of our “dirty thirty” episode.   Have your tissues on standby, AID XXX is going to blow you...away.

Are you hungry for design? Mark “Babyface” Brickey has a cobra-like appetite for countin' burgers and estimating dead cats in our 29th, succulent episode of Adventures in Design. Join us as our three favorite “Big Cheeseburgers”, Mark, Billy, and James, get a hearty education in the arts at Minot State University.  Discover Mark's love/hate relationship with poetry, find out what you can learn from the elegant piece of cinema known as 8 Mile, and encounter travel lessons regarding the proper use of double beds in your hotel room.  We'll be web-slingin' from topic to topic, from the Death Star to Jurassic Park.  Plus, great music is woven throughout this lively episode by local, Folk/Americana band, Wild Hands.


We've gotta admit, North Dakota has some of the nicest people in the real, 48 states, but where are all the fucking buildings here?  Is it just us, or is there such a thing as too much space?  I'm afraid we're experiencing early symptoms of 'Spaceophobia'.  The only cure?  Surrounding our artsy-fartsy, city hearts with some truly, down-home guests for a casual chat about design culture here in the “Magic City”.

We begin with Bill Harbort and Laurie Geller, co-founders and “Fathers” of Notstock, an entertaining, multi-day, arts event hosted by Minot State University.  Laurie discusses the mission of Notstock and how area schools and the community are becoming engaged in the arts, while we ask Bill to talk with us about his passion for American muscle cars and the direct influence these majestic pieces of machinery have on his work.

Next, Dan Sharbono and Alyssa Weyrauch Sharbono, creative team of 62 Doors Gallery and Studios discuss the adaptability of artists, how environmental setbacks and the growing oil industry are swiftly shaping the landscape for artists seeking space in Minot, and more.  

Shop Talk is bigger and better than ever, jam-packed with essential design resources. The boys unlock the secrets behind Delicious Design League's registration process and add expert advice on film placement when burning your screens.  The boys keep you informed about issues developing in the printmaking arena as the process gain popularity in the craft fair circuit. Billy gives James art direction on his horrible, gig poster concepts, and finally, we welcome our friend Takuma to the couch to discuss Japanese culture and refrigerators with us.  Join us for maniacal laughs down at the student union, The Beaverchomp, the almost certainly fictional name for what we imagine colleges like name these sorts of things, for an indispensable 29th edition of Adventures in Design.

James talks about the happiness he finds through the success of others, and Billy addresses a key flaw in the 'living each day like it's your last' mentality.  There's singing. There's hair.  And we don't care.  Join us for another exciting episode of Adventures in Design.
