{     "Good News For People Who Love Bad News" Poster     }    

I've been a fan of Modest Mouse for a looong time, and although I'm sitting right at the tipping point of burnout with them recently, I must say that the best thing about their latest album "Good News For People Who Love Bad News" is the beautiful green and pink album cover depicting arrows stuck in a wall. I mean "Float On" is awesome, and I did listen to it about 83 times those few months, but the cover.... Wow. Just completely memorable, perfect in it's simplicity and design. It was done by the good people at Houston, whom have developed an absolutely wonderful marketing scheme for the album, nearly worthwhile of a gallery showing. Looking deeper, I've found that Houston and Modest Mouse have some of this material for sale on their sites. My favorite has got to be the poster for the actual album cover, although the similar but sold out "Even If You Survive This" print is equally impressive. In addition to the posters available, you can get a 100 foot roll of plastic construction tape reading "BUILDING A DESERT" over and over (which is a lyric from "Custom Concern") and the "As Long As You're Gone" bumper sticker set which is a limited edition set of set of 11 different stickers, each with a different lyric from the track "A Life of Arctic Sounds." Some very nice swag, but the poster is still the most attractive offering in my opinion, and costs only $15 even though limited to a run of 500.

I waited too long to get the poster you're talking about and now I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas of where I can get me hands on it?
