My friend Jeremy Dunn kindly posted on Instagram (@JeremyDDunn) abut the “Be Nice Looks Twice” Tees safe-tees recently. We have a few sizes and colors left, and a very few of the left-side driving versions remain. They are available here. We will be stocking new versions later this year. If you’ve questions or would like to receive info when we release new product, send an email to info (at) parcematone.com.
Jeremy was given a ticket for not coming to a full stop at a red light, and subsequently attended a share the road class. After one session he relayed this story: “Judge “Tell me some things cyclists do wrong on the road…” Tough-guy shouts: “they ride bikes!” Laughter ensues.”
Another friend, Dylan VanWheelen is in long recovery after being hit by a truck that was too impatient to wait for him to make a (legal and signaled) left turn. He’s a seasoned rider who works at Chris King, and it’s a sad spring for him to be off his bicycle for two or three months, though he, and we, recognize his injuries could’ve been much worse and are thankful they are not.
All this to say, we do what we can and we continue to ride. Living in fear is no way to live, but being considerate and vigilant is a good way to roll forward and to remind everyone, including our fellow cyclists, as well as pedestrians and drivers, to take a little extra time.

Martin Luther King Junior church fan, Memphis. Found inside a folder along with the original Arches and Aisles cover layouts.
March 17, 2012:
SXSW starts to become psychedelic about now, pure force carrying folks onward, occasionally downward. After a solid week of absorbing information and running into/running with friends and colleagues, it’s time for a few days of quiet.
March 9, 2012:
We are pleased to announce we will be in Paris to participate in “Keep Portland Weird” (though, with much gratitude, I gently protest the name of the event) at the Gâité Lyrique. Playing with The Jicks and Street Nights on April 24th. We will be touring the SW in May, heading east in the summer. All confirmed dates on the shows listing. Portlanders: come to Bunk Bar 4/17 and Revival Drum Shop 4/18.
February 22, 2012:
We have a few copies of “La Piscine”, an EP with a new track by Rebecca along with new songs by Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), Richard Swift (The Shins) and Superbravo (Holden) available in the store. Full disclosure: The new Rebecca track will also be on her new album.
We are fans of the wonderful Jackpot Recording Studio. I had a little it to do with encouraging Larry to start it up and he was kind enough to give a good home to a massive Leslie speaker that I couldn’t take with me when I moved from Portland. Joanna in-house engineered off and on for years.
Larry and Kendra are launching a series called Jackpot Covers Portland. We recorded our version of a 1980′s Portland R & B jam last month. More on that when it’s posted next week…..
January 12, 2012: New bllloggg post. Booking shows. Making plans, etc.
