1) Mythbusters Spinoff
This spring, my MVR business partner Kris Dorr and I were flown out to Los Angeles for a while to help the former Mythbusters crew do a thing. We can't tell you what that thing is, but you can find out for yourself on December 9th, if you have Netflix. Supposedly, our episode will be the first one of the series. It's called White Rabbit Projects. Hopefully we don't get totally cut out or look like complete Rubes.
2) New Zealand Pilgrimage
If you've been following PIAPTK for the last ten years, you will remember that I started the label by ordering lathe cuts from the OG Godfather, Peter King. He's still doing his thing, just like he has for the last 30 years, and to celebrate my 38th Birthday and the 10th Birthday of PIAPTK, I am making a pilgrimage down to Ashburton, NZ to meet the Lathe Wizard of NZ. This has been a dream for over a decade and I finally have the opportunity to do it. If you've got any tips, tricks, or hookups and connections down under, please hit me with them.
