The File Under Other 2011 SPX report.

“Years of retail experience have taught me that there are two types of customers.  Shoppers and buyers.  Shoppers are just there for the experience.  They might buy something.  Buyers are there to buy and the only thing standing in the way of them giving you their money is you.  You have to have something that fits into their idea of what they want to buy.” -Shannon Smith

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.

    it looks like Shannon hit the nail right on it’s tiny shiny head. If nothing else can be learned from heading to SPX for the first time, and especially if you’re from the south, it’s that SHEETZ nad WAWA will change your life.

    I went to Indianapolis this past week to visit my friend who bought my car last month. He drove in from Maryland, and sure enough, there was a Sheetz bag on the floor. <3

    I’ll say. I sure miss my precious QT, though.

    SPX is a great show for the indie creator. Unlike, I dunno Heroes, there is a chance you’ll sell books and not go home contemplating giving up comics/suicide.
