Today we packed up the truck to send the entire DFTBA warehouse to Montana for our new warehouse crew to take over. DFTBA started in my bedroom, then moved to a spare bedroom, then my garage, then a small retail space, then to a 3,000 sq ft warehouse, and NOW to an 8,000 sq ft warehouse out in Montana.
This is a big day for DFTBA Records, the little merch company that could. I’m really excited about the fancy new warehouse!
When Hank and Alan were like, “It’s 2008. We should start a record company,” I thought they were bananas.
They were bananas, but by bringing cool things into the world and staying true to their vision of an artist-driven company, they’ve built something really wonderful. DFTBA has helped nerdfighters go to college without debt; it’s helped YouTubers be able to make videos full-time; and it has allowed my mustachioed face to grace many thousands of torsos.
Thanks to everyone who’s made stuff with us and everyone who’s bought stuff from us. Rest assured that while the warehouse may get bigger, the company’s values won’t change. DFTBA!
Stan and Hannah and many people have been working on this for a long time, and I’m so excited that it’s finally here!
DFTBA.com’s first DVD, My Drunk Kitchen: Season One is available for preorder. I’ve watched every second of this thing, and it is wall-to-wall hilarity. The commentaries are just brilliant. Preorder yours now, and (as long as you live in the US) you’ll get it by Christmas. If you don’t live in the US, you may or may not get it by Christmas. It’s like a lottery! Lotteries are fun!
Sorry, I am just really excited because I love Hannah so much and DFTBA finally made a DVD and it’s awesome and yay!
New video about feeling more alive and “The Hearth and the Salamander,” Part I of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, which we’re reading for the Nerdfighter Book Club.
