If you’ve been going through Breaking Bad withdrawals like I have, this may give you a little satisfaction of seeing these two on the screen together again. This was done as a promo for the Emmy Awards on August 25, 2014. Enjoy!

You know how you sometimes come across something just knowing that it’s going to take off? HandMeUps.org is one of those things. Founder Kurt Narmore has connected with some huge clothing brands and set up a system that “obtains brand new, unused, unworn clothing from radical brands who share a philanthropic interest” in order to give underprivileged kids some fresh gear. He’s also partnered up with the Boys & Girls Club of America and will be doing a 5 city summer tour, bringing some really great guests along for some motivational speaking.
Get used to seeing this logo. They are about to do some big things. And keep an eye out for our next CRU issue for an interview with Mr. Narmore himself.
Their site is brand new, so check it out for more info at www.handmeups.org

I’ve been going to Bryan John Appleby shows since I saw him on the Campfire OK‘s album release bill in February. Bryan delivers on his own and doesn’t lose a thing when he’s joined by his band. Seatown has been anticipating a full length for some time now and the good news is that his Kickstarter is ALMOST funded. We really enjoy talking about artists we like, doing collabs with them, and putting the biggest spotlight on them that we can muster. We can’t wait to get our Vinyl / Handmade Poster / Personal Mix from our pledge. Please watch his short kickstarter video below and join us in helping Bryan succeed!
