So, as you may know if you’ve been reading our various Twitter feeds, we’re in the process of expanding our office space by moving the moonbase across the hall. It’s a little more than twice the size of our current space–and still very much on the moon–and it’ll be great once we get in. But first, it’s going to require some serious 80s cleaning-up montages. Which is a luxury we don’t have, so we’ve been putting in the work.
The space was previous occupied by an artist collective/flop house/conpiracy bunker/possible opium den. Actually, of the myriad tenants that frequented the space, the one guy we ever talked to was cool, but that didn’t stop this progression:
- Friday: Giant, unauthorized party with upwards of 300 people. Landlord shuts it down.
- Saturday: Tenants pull truck up and start loading out things they care about.
- Sunday: Tenants trash the place; pulling down molding, tearing out lights, breaking bulbs.
- Monday: Rent cheque bounces, tenants are gone. We are offered the space.
So hey! Boon for us! Cause our current space is really small, which we discovered during Desert Bus.
But good lord did the previous tenants ever leave a ton of crap lying around, which I made a point to take a bunch of pictures of, as I just gotten a new lens and wanted to play around. It won’t really give you a good idea of what the space looks like yet, but that’s for later. Enjoy!
