The Green Bay Packers' origins can be traced back to 1896 where they were part of a semi professional league of teams that played around Wisconsin and the Midwest. Started by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and underwritten by the Indian Meat Packing corporation (get it?) the team went on to join the AFPA (American Professional Football Association) the precursor to the NFL, in 1921. Fast Forward to now, with more league championships than any other team in the league (12) one Vince Lombardi and the emotional and spiritual powerhouse that is the midwest behind them, the pack is getting ready for another shot at the big prize. How can you not root for them? They are the only community owned, non-profit team in the league! Every few years the citizens of Green Bay can buy shares of their favorite team and own a part of something they love. Every Packers home game has been sold out since 1960 and they're most ardent fans wear FAKE CHEESE ON THEIR HEADS.
Without getting into anything too game specific, this Super Bowl is going to be an insanely memorable one, classic teams, two cities who are hungry to win, and an army of drunks the world over who are dying to see the game. The best thing about sports is their ability to bring people together and provide people with a good time. Sure, to some it seems stupid and silly, but not everyone in America is a fucking genius and that's ok. Not every American finds solace in punk records, movies, video games, skateboarding, weed, or even football and that's ok too. Whats important is to remember that people like what they like and if it's making them feel good, then more power to them....unless it's meth. DONT DO METH.

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” - Benjamin Franklin
2010 was a banner year for us. Sure, we had our ups (Credit Card Machine, great shows, lots of good times with friends) and our downs (Credit Card Machine, shows, too much of a "good time" with friends) but it was really the same sort of stuff that everyone experiences, Im sure you can relate to these things that happend: Someone tagged BACON in the bathroom, someone stole a picture of the shop, only to have it replaced by a PICTURE of the picture that was stolen (trippy) Someone put this really cool stencil of a little dog on the sidewalk, Spot and JJ both got new dogs, JJ introduced sushi to a neighbor only to have him marked as a man who eats pussy (Guilty as Charged - JJ), Gay Cheerleaders, a Guy who claims to buy pot from his 12 year old son, and who could forget the naked guy!
You may have been shot at with a BB gun or a slingshot, informed you that you are fucking up, told that your band sucks or maybe you were told you that you're a piece of shit. We do these things out of love. Trailer Space isn't just for Spot, JJ, The Golden Boys, The Strange Boys, James Arthur and their ilk; Trailer Space is for EVERYONE who loves music and above all else A GOOD TIME. This has been our focus for the first 17 days of the year, that's why its taken so long to put up this year end blog, POSITIVE THINKING IS A PROCESS AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE JJ AND SPOT SMOKE TOO MUCH DAMN WEED.
