A couple consecutive days of rain and grey skies inspired me to bring my hoodies out of hibernation. It also got the crockpot out of the cabinet to slow-cook the first chili of the season. Pulled chicken, chili, and soup, crunching thru leaves on the sidewalk, I love slow-cooker season! Don't worry there will still be more warm and sunny weather in October but I feel like these gloomy afternoons are ideal for working in the basement. Perfect conditions for hunkering in to make the most of these beautiful days.

Wumly the vampire suffered in agony

the most wonderful time of the year

Around 2008 I started the annual tradition of sending out holiday packages to friends. Past packages have included calendars, collages, prints, stickers, recipes, koozies, a children’s book, paintings, a story about a child seeking revenge on Santa Claus, wax, shoelaces, buttons, DVDs, bandanas, zines, drawings, photographs and other assorted ephemera. Normally I send out about 100.

Last year I combined the holiday mailer with a Kickstarter for a film project I was working on. The film is coming along and should be finished in the spring. The Kickstarter also helped cover the cost of materials and shipping. I used some of the extra money to send out packages to skateshops and I'm hoping to continue that this year.

The big difference this year is the recent USPS news concerning slower service and higher costs. With that in mind I plan to try and set up a couple meet ups locally (think Wilson, Clemente, my house) to hand people their packages in person. If that doesn't work or if you live outside of Chicago I'll throw it in the mail. I'm starting the process early to try and get everything out and delivered in time. So far I'm pretty happy with everything that will be included.

So if you are interested in getting on the list simply email me at with the subject Holiday Mailer. Please include your address and if you'd be down for a local pickup.

Friend of the Week

This week's friend is comes from Guy down in St. Louis, "Freya is a freakishly tall redbone coonhound who is completely full of love. She enjoys pitching bones in the air and nibbling on ears. The amount of laughter in the house has increased substantially since we got her and raising her has been a joy.

We got her because we figured Mona would enjoy a play companion. That worked out for a few months but then Freya hit a growth spurt and curmudgeonly Mo quit playing with her. It’s clear that Freya loves her sister more than anything though and will never give up on her."

If you would like your best friend, handiest tool or dearest animal associate to be featured email me 3 pictures of them and I will do my best to try and capture their essence.

If you ever miss an email or you see that it's Friday and no email has been delivered, you can always check out the archive link on the Serial Dispatch instagram. If you know anyone who might enjoy this weekly special delivery send them in that direction so they can see if they'd like to join the list. Let's make it happen.
