Cute as a button

'Badge', said Eric Clapton and George Harrison and badges there shall be.
I have received a full measure and quote from my friendly local badgemaker Do Not Be Quiet. They are a refreshingly hard-ass political outfit who also promise "high quality 1 1/4" (35mm) buttons for wholesale and retail. The buttons are manufactured from top grade aluminium shell and pinback, with a high gloss plastic mylar coated laminate."
Personally, I think we are selling the band short if we go for anything less than top grade aluminium.
Unlike UT, who is practising for the Gold Coast Marathon, DNBQ "specialise in small runs" and offer custom design for any orders of more than 100. Price will be 85 cents per button. They throw in free design for orders larger than 100.

Or do we wanna unleash some artistic shit of our own?
Next stop bumper stickers.
'I fish squid and I vote' or 'Hinny on board'?

Well that price seems more than reasonable. I for one am keen to unleash some of Crafty's artistic shit...but I leave it to the rhythmn squid himself to tell us whether he can get some hot artistic button shit done by the printing deadline...which would be when to have the badges by the gig?

It says 'most orders shipped within two or three days.' shipping in our case probably not such a big deal time-wise (maybe they intend to send it up the Maribyrnong on a barge to my house?)
Crafty possibly not responding due to petulance at having his name removed from the list of band members contributing to the blog. Seems like a cruel blow (and he has been posting hard lately).

Good point...is this his way of telling us he quits? He always did have trouble with confrontation.

As usual Crafty is, at once, both viscious and cryptic.
Perhaps he cunningly chose the word verification as his message thereby opening up a critique of the very medium we are using for this blog. Is the word verifaction really what we have all been trying to say all along?
Or lastly, is this some acronym that the kids use and Crafty, being pretty bloody hip, is all over it?
