Freak the AirWaves!

Today the Freakerteam is feeling a little bit gritty. We're thrashing around the office screaming British obscenities (like "WANKER!") and headbanging to nothing in particular. We're about to smash guitars and shave our heads (except for Oliver. His mane of glory will not be touched.)  When this alter-ego shows it's spiky face, it looks a little something like this:  Whatever could have induced this onslaught of badassery, you ask? We were featured on our local NPR stat...


Graduation to Professionalism

Back in November, we gave a little chitchat at UNCW for the Wells Fargo Entrepreneurial Speaker Series. Zach can pronunciate an entire sentence without breaking out in a fit of giggles (this is a pseudo-lie.) Oliver can bring his prosthetic arm Trish to academic gatherings (she was a huge hit.) Lauren can accidentally tell a lecture hall of students that they shouldn't go to college (she deeply apologizes if this offended anyone.) And Justin can announce that he's very very extre...


Right back atcha, work!

Today is a joyous day across the nation! Celebrations and festivities are erupting from sea to shining sea! We don't even know how to contain our immense excitement and we've been worrying all day that we may explode from a fit of ravaging happiness!!  Today is the day that employed Americans get the honor and the pleasure of going back to work!  Reports have it that in New York, employees on Wall Street have started crippling joy-riots. In Chicago, the financial district has ...


Freak Festivities!

 We'd like to share with you a little somethin somethin that we found in The Soapbox last night. Let us preface this with a statement: We have never been so honored to be hypothetically next to something. BAM BAM BAM BAM!!!!


NBC To be Subtly Freaked!

This morning we got a magnificent email! Here's a little snippet: "On Monday, Kickstarter will be on national television. NBC's new long format newsmagazine, Rock Center, is set to air a segment that they taped a couple months ago at 10pm/9 Central.  The Freaker project video has a cameo! Just wanted to let you and the team know so you can tune in. Here's a teaser for the show." Oh dang oh dang! Mom! We're on ze teeeeveeeee!!!  Visit msnbc.co...


Merry Freakin Christmas: A Bedtime Story

This is a Christmas story. It's about the search for knit truth in a dark world of sweaters and poorly-made beverage accessories.  Once upon a time in a land far far away, there was a Freaker family....   There was a Freaker papa and a Freaker mama and a Freaker manchild. They lived in the woods and even though they couldn't always dress themselves properly, they had a collection of holiday sweaters that would induce a panic-attack-of-joy in 1983.  One Decembe...


Smistmas Smarties!

We heard somewhere that real offices take all of their employees out and feed them and plow them with alcohol for Christmas. I think they call them "smoffice smistmas parties" or something like that. So we followed suit and last night we had our very first annual Freaker Christmas Party! It went smashingly, mainly because Alisha was wise enough to wear a wreath on her head.     She's our special festive delight!  The ladiez of the Castle (street) cuddled and snuggled...


Handyfreakz!

Our other third, Zach and Oliver, left us alone in the office (huge mistake) two weeks ago. They had embarked on a journey to Pennsylvania to build a tradeshow booth for an upcoming show in January. We would like to reiterate that they built this with their bare hands because they are manly men and that's what manly men do.  The booth is almost dunzo, and because we love you so much we wanted to give you a sneakpeak at the fruits of all their hard work!  HOLY SMOKE...


The Ever Elegant Ellen

Last night a good friend tried to show us his newest film. Unfortunately for him, we realized that we didn't own a television and all of our computers were in the office because our house doesn't have internet. That is how technologically deficient we are in our free time. And it's quite sad.  BUT THEN! We cheered ourselves up with a televisionary remembrance of days past when we were on the Ellen show. And then watched it on a television.  You can do that too! We can be tec...


Eloquence and Explanations!

"I can talk visually. I just can't talk... with.. you know... words."  -Justin Mitchener speaks on behalf of designers worldwide.

Bye-Bye Buster

It is a sad day for the heyyyyyyyyyy brothers of the world. Our very last Buster sold today.  In memory of him and his love of loose seals, we are going to have a party with unlimited juice and it's going to be off the hook. Then we're going to fly, but maybe a little too close to the sun. Then we're going to take $80,000 in cartography lessons but NOT take a swim in the ocean.  Buster, we had a wild wild ride, but it was something that society wouldn't allow. And no, it is ...
