Fair Go Bro

 We loved this Virgin Mobile Australia promotion featuring Springfieldian Doug Pitt. Maybe you’ve heard of his more famous brother? The second-most-famous-Pitt-in-the-family is a familiar face to some around here as the good folks at our sister agency TAP have helped with Mr. Pitt’s charitable organization Care To Learn. Go show the Like.

Congrats, Springfield. Oregon, that is.

Simpsons creator, Matt Groening has confirmed the much-speculated location of the true Springfield. The fictional hometown of his much-beloved characters happens to be based on the real Springfield, Oregon. Even though we here in the 417 relished in the ambiguity of the town’s mysterious whereabouts, we’re sending a Cowabunga! shout-out to our northwest namesakes.

Stretch yo’self

Following a glorious spring weather weekend here in the Ozarks, we’re noticing quite a few Marlinites moving a little slow after two full days of tilling, planting, raking, hedging and mowing their yards and gardens. (Also a good start to some farmer’s tans.) Remember friends, stretch first.

Gettin’ all artsy up in here

We don’t like to take ourselves too seriously but we do take what we do seriously. So when we were invited to put on an exhibition of our work for display at MSU’s Brick City Gallery we had some serious discussions on how to pull it off. Seriously. What we came up with is: The Evolution of Ideas. Basically, we took the route that it’s not the destination it’s the journey. We scraped, scoured and cobbled all of our scribbles, scraps, sketches and scattered thoughts that led to great work and put some artsy looking frames around them. And if we do say so ourselves, it’s a pretty snazzy looking show. If you’re in the neighborhood and feeling the need for some culture or if you’re just looking for an excuse to wear a turtleneck, stop by the gallery and check out the exhibit. It’ll be up October 24th and run through November 19th.

Brick City Gallery hours are:

M/W/F: 10am-6pm

T-TR: 1pm-6pm

Sat: Noon-6pm

It’s All Downtown. It’s alive!

Want to see where all the action is in center-city Springfield? The newly redesigned and refunctionalized (yup, we made that word up) launched over the weekend. We worked with the great folks over at the Urban Districts Alliance and 40 Digits to get it up and running. Give it a whirl and find something new.

In the Gallery

Last Thursday, local artist Pam Rubert’s exhibition opened in Gallery Marlin. Her incredible quilts adorn about every available wall in our space. Very inspiring, and strangely cozy. Learn more about Pam’s process and approach here >
