Stephanie Newland flies the U&F flag alongside the woodchipper from the movie Fargo at the Fargo Visitors’ Center in North Dakota. “And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of U&F merch.” 😄
Happy 4th of July to all U&F listeners in the USA! And many thanks to one in particular, Stephanie Newland, who took time out from the holiday celebrations to get a snap of herself and her U&F merch at Dead Lake, Minnesota. It’s great to see the dark world of U&F in such a sunny and peaceful setting … at least till the fireworks start.
Don’t have U&F merch of your own? Then get some from my Redbubble store today. Go on, do it while it still exists, because nothing lasts forever 🧛🏼♂️
Aloha! My thanks to Anne Smith in Hawaii, who joins me as a contributor to the U&F Merch Around The World gallery with these two pics. One is taken near Diamond Head, the other on the beach on Oahu, Hawaii. The Ribena is a reference to a detail in my unfinished work, Still of the Night at Patreon. A nice touch, I think.
If you have U&F merch and you’d like to share it with me and the world, take a pic of it near a local landmark and send it to “mike @ mikebennettauthor . com” (no gaps in the email address). Don’t forget to say where it’s taken. And if you don’t have U&F merch, why not get some today from my Redbubble store? You can be the coolest person on your street … if only everyone else understood why 😊
Hello there! So, first off, I posted a new podcast yesterday, so check your feeds for U&F After Hours 3. Just me on the show this time; Pauline was at work when I was recording and I felt I couldn’t postpone being in your ears another moment longer.
Also, I had a great idea!! Or at least what I think is a great idea …
Are you the proud owner of an item of U&F merch? If so, this idea involves you (if you’re game). And if not, then buy some immediately from my RedBubble store! Click here
Then, once you have whatever it is your heart desires, rush out to your nearest local landmark and take a pic of yourself, and/or your item of merch, in front of the local landmark. I went out in Wexford Town today to do just that …
The one on the left is me (modelling one of my U&F tees) with the Pikeman in Wexford Town, and the one on the right is one of my U&F mugs with Admiral John Barry, credited with being the father of the US Navy (he was born in Wexford).
Now, I realise you may not have a significant local landmark where you live. We can’t all have an Eiffel Tower or a Statue of Liberty on our doorstep. But maybe you have a favourite shop, pub, or supermarket where you could take a selfie with your merch? While it may be “boring old Walmart” to you, to other people around the world it’s a completely new thing that they’ve never seen before. For example, here’s me in front of one of my favourite Wexford shops, Red Books in St Peter’s Square …
And then, once you’ve taken your photo, email it to me at: mike @ mikebennettauthor .com (minus the gaps), and I can then start a gallery of pics called U&F Merch Around the World. “What a great idea!” I hear you cry. “I hope someone else does it, because I’m not going to.” Nooooooo! You have to do it, yes, you! Because those other peeps, they won’t do it. They never do. So, be one of the happy few, and join me in theU&F Merch Around the World gallery. It’ll be awesome! 😊
