Sweet Jesus, I sweat I have never been so excited about a piece if art in my life.

Good news! The Broke canvases arrived!

More good news! The Broke prints arrived!

And the CDs came in weeks ago!

That means I will be posting out all the Broke swag TODAY!

So go get your orders in before it’s all gone as it is all ENTIRELY LIMITED.

If you want anything specific singing – or a specific area of the print signing, for that matter (I am defaukting to the back), send an email with your order and let me know.

Speaking of Broke, here’s a special message from Gruff Rhys:

Still speaking of Broke, Steve Lamacq played it on his BBC 6music show yesterday afternoon, so a great big high five for him. I recorded some radio drops yesterday too – if you’re a DJ and you want some drops, holla.

The following messages came in via the channels requesting component parts for remixing and playing:

As ever, I aim to please, so here, brothers and sisters, is a link to the Broke splits. Flapsandwitch, you can remix the song to your content, and Spencer, you can remove the drums and add your own.

And here’s a bunch of ATD acepallas that still needs an official home on the site:

 Meanwhile, I discovered a new and exciting subculture.

I was like, what’s a brony? A Horse that likes chestbumps?

Turns out a brony is in fact a male human that likes My Little Pony cartoons, and expresses their love of the impressive artworks by making cool toys like this:

…and incredible dubs like this:

SHOUT OUT ALL BRONYS! YOU ARE DOING GREAT WORKS AND I AM PROIUD OF YOU!

Right, back to work. I have a lot of BROKE ART to post. The video’s rendering now, byt the way. Aaron and I were up till 4 am finishing it, and it is a very beautiful thing indeed. Here’s a still:

PAX!

Holy shit. That up there’s Xtra Xtra  Stupid Magazine’s Freshmen 2012 cover (AKA The Gift That Keeps Giving). And, aside from all the other craziness, that really is drunken master French Montana, co-author (FREE MAX B!) of akirathedon.com’s 2009 mixtape of the year, Coke Wave, wearing a fucking BEAR CUB on his head.

Those drooling spaztards at PETA are gonna have a field day on this shit. Maybe they’ll make one of their domestic-violence-is-sexy videos about it.

Insert your own Frenchie knows how to get a head in the rap game joke here.
