Unbeknownst to many, The World’s Most Interesting Man has a twin brother, quietly living a peaceful life in Raleigh, NC.  Spectacled, yet not involved in spectacles; enthusiastic about cigars, yet not an “enthusiast” per se; and prefers a warm Romeo y Julieta to a cold Dos Equis.  He’s no cardboard cutout -- and dammit, he’s still interesting to me. (Pictured above:  Oscar Arrizola, owner of Virgin Cigars off of Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh, NC). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #carolinablue #design #gfx #graphics #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #brother #cigars #romeoyjulieta #padron #arturofuente #enthusiast #spectacles #peaceful #dosxx #dosequis #twinbrother #theworldsmostinterestingman

“Well, I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk” – Bruce Springsteen  Miguel Silas plays guitar at Los Tres Magueyes in Rolesville every Wednesday night.  I asked him what kind of music he plays (banda, ranchera, tejano?) and he said, “If I see guys in baseball caps and boots I play country music.  If I see couples together I play love songs.” Fair enough.  H*A*P*P*Y  W*E*E*K*E*N*D !! #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #durhamnc #rolesvillenc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #mexicanfood #mexicanrestaurant #banda #ranchera #tejano #couples #baseballcaps #lovesongs #countrymusic #magueyes #guitar #brucespringsteen #thunderroad
“And I can’t wait to get on the road again.” -- Willie Nelson  So, I labored on this Labor Day – and the new Durham magazine is done, and off to the printer.  Finished.  Stick a spork in it.

Wrapping up lay-out this weekend.  Magazine goes to print on Tuesday morning.  I go to Emerald Isle Tuesday noon.  H*A*P*P*Y 3-DAY W*E*E*K*E*N*D !

“You have to stay in school. You have to. You have to go to college. You have to get your degree. Because that's the one thing people can't take away from you is your education. And it is worth the investment.” – Michelle Obama  Back to School and a beautiful day in Asheville, NC yesterday.  Spent the afternoon hanging curtain rods and shelves, and the evening with friends and family downtown. (Bottom left:  daughter Sarah –- rising sophomore, art student, also works as a hostess/food runner – soon to be server – at the wickedly tasty Bar Taco in downtown Asheville.  Center right: son Mac -- rising junior working towards a finance/business degree and moonlights at the Asheville Autobell washing cars in his free time.  Go visit both businesses, be nice to my kids, and have a brilliant rest-of-your weekend!). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #ashevillenc #uncasheville #asheville #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #bartaco #autobell #investment #carwash #friendsandfamily #education #michelleobama #flotus
Here come the man from the stars We don't know why he go so far And keep on marching along Beating his drum  Thugs and sticks and bats and balls For nuclear dicks with dialect drawls They come from a parking lot town Where nothing lives in the Sun  Don't make me a target Don't make me a target When you reach back in his mind Feels like he's breaking the law There's something back there he got That nobody knows  He never claimed to say what he says He smells like the inside of closets and stairs The kind where nobody goes  Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target – Spoon  Worked from home this morning.  Put on music to escape the news.  And yet, somehow there’s just no getting away from it…  Anyways, in other news, the latest Clayton Edition of OrangeUnique is with the printer and will be out early next week.  It’s the bomb.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #claytonnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #breakingthelaw #thenews #news #bomb #nuclear #nuclearoption #northkorea #potus #spoon #dontmakemeatarget
“All vinyl polymers may be regarded as built from monomeric units containing a tertiary carbon atom.” – Giulio Natta  But, the kids like it anyway.  Just signed up a cool new shop in Garner, NC – Go Stick It Vinyl.  They offer about 100 different vinyl patterns from geometric shapes and polka dots, to paisley and zebra stripes (both self-adhesive and heat transfer). So, get your crafting on!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #garnernc #claytonnc #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #polymers #nckids #crafting #crafts #carbon #polymers #atoms #geometric #paisley #giulionatta #vinyl
“A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” – Ansel Adams  Good to know, because I’ve been sitting on this photograph for a few weeks and can’t think of a single witty thing to say about it. (Kaleb Langley of Langley Heating and Air pictured above.  Langley HVAC is featured in both the Raleigh and Wake Forest editions of OrangeUnique – which I hear began dropping in mailboxes today). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #wakeforestnc #wakeforest #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #witty #hvac #heating #cooling #words #photograph #anseladams
“Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning” – Dean Martin …. Except for maybe having my son stand in front of the storage shed faking joy and happiness over the latest set of magazines (Wake Forest and North Raleigh).

“Nothing seems to kill me no matter how hard I try Nothing is closing my eyes Nothing can beat me down for your pain or delight And nothing seems to break me No matter how hard I fall  Nothing can break me at all” – Soundgarden  Waiting around this fine Friday morning to hear from my printer, so I can pay the postage on the upcoming Wake Forest and Raleigh magazines, and grab my magazine overages.  Very pleased that Bryan Griffin, owner of Quest Martial Arts, will be featured in both magazines.  He’s a Fifth Degree Blackbelt in To-Shin Do, and a former scout sniper in the U.S. Marine Corps who served two combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Impressive resume and even more impressive in person.  Check out his website at: www.questraleigh.com.  And Happy Weekend, folks!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #wakeforestnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #usmc #marinecorps #marine #combatduty #martialarts #toshindo #iraq #afghanistan #chriscornell #soundgarden #blowuptheoutsideworld
