hunter gatherer of ideas

"Ranch Exit" Fuel TV spot from Solpin Films on Vimeo.

Here is a spot I did that was inspired by some crazy Idaho framer kids I went to college with and a kid I went to high school with that never wore underwear, only surf trunks.

repairs already?

man, i just finished this project. or at least it seems like i just finished it.

the original clear finish i put on my built-up plywood stair stringers is toast. i don't think it had any anti-UV balls at all. so this weekend i did some disassembly and got started with a few coats of paint. exterior grade semi gloss. we'll see if it lasts any longer than my original work. i hope so. i don't want to be tearing the stairs apart every few years.
