OPP: Aaron Draplin

Another hit from the freestyle fanatic... Aaron Draplin comes through with more straight heat. We take you now to Mr. Draplin, reporting live from Portland, OR:

My buddy Dale and I were junkin' high up on Mt. Tabor. Garage sales can be tough. There's only so much time in the day, so you gotta be picky. The trick is to do a slow "drive by" surveying the scene. This way if you see a table with baby clothes, you can floor it and get the fuck outta there.

Just beyond the tables of clothes and shit, you could see a little "media section." Enough of a reason to roll the dice. We parked and headed straight for the records, books and outdated software.

I was lucky enough to find an old book called "Aviation Fundamentals." The asking price was 50 cents. I took one look at the old sea hag sitting there—who eyeballed us from the time we set foot on her property—and offered her a quarter. She took the bait and we got the hell out of there. Just like that. That's is how we do it.

25 cents for 2 Color goodness?! Aaron Draplin is THE JUNKIN' MASTER!

Reminds me a bit of Pelican books from the early '60s.
