my adidas. mine, mine, mine. (nerd-out #44)

i'm on the tiny showcase mailing list. this means i get a sneak preview of the print that will be offered for sale a couple hours or even a day beforehand. in the last couple months, the website has blown up a bit. despite increasing their print run from 50 to 100, things still sell out really fast. you basically have to be right by your computer when the prints go on sale in order to snatch one up for yourself.

i was very excited for this week's print by johnny yanok.



it's horizontal, about new york, and populated by animals. i made a mental note to be by the computer when the print went on sale. so of course i go and get sick and never make it online that evening. i forget about my adidas. but magically, when i go to check the website the next morning, there are still 3 prints left! i quickly add #98 to my cart and check out and live happily ever after. i can't believe they didn't sell out immediately.

During the past month I've added the Tiny Showcase xml feed to my bloglines account. Just a few minutes ago I clicked through to look at the print from last night. My first thought was - yL links to this site, doesn't she? Does she know about this print? This print is right up her alley. Too bad it's sold out. And then I checked on your webpage (the rss feed hadn't gotten to my bloglines inbox yet) and realized that you are so totally on the ball.
