Midwest HQ Open House

December 16th, 2014 by Bryan Bedell

As you may know, our partner in FIELD NOTES, Aaron Draplin is running a pop-up shop in Portland. Aaron put a lot of thought into it, and a lot of orange paint. He rented some retail space. He built stuff. He advertised it all over town. He even made a special FIELD NOTES edition just for the shop.

Here at Midwest HQ, we didn’t do any of that. We’ve been too busy packing orders and checking presses. Like you, dear customer, we waited until the last minute, and made the quick decision to keep our offices open late this Thursday and Friday (Dec. 18 and 19, until 7pm) and invite the public to stop by and score some last-minute gifts on their way home from work.

We figure if we’re here packing orders anyway (free US Priority shipping through Thursday!) we might as well string up a few lights, pick up a couple cases of beer, maybe microwave some Totinos pizza rolls, probably play some trendy indie-rock Christmas music, and invite some folks over. We can show you around our offices and packing area and sell you anything available on our site. You might get a sneak peek at the very beginnings of our FIELD NOTES museum (under construction) And for the first time, we’ll offer some ‘scratch and dent’ deals on opened/marred/otherwise unsaleable products. We’ve also got some Coudal/Swap Meat merchandise sitting around from the old days, a few t-shirts, posters, Field Tested Books, and whatever else we can dig up and trade for your hard-earned cash.

We will not likely be offering anything you haven’t seen before, no out-of-print editions or rare books, but we can wrap gifts, make gift cards, pose for selfies, and once we get a few beers in us, who knows what’ll happen? Stop by on your way home and say hi!

Field Notes spring teaser video 7. It's too late for clues now. We've announced it.

Folks on The List get FIELD NOTES release information before everyone else. For example, our mailing list just got first dibs on the new Summer COLORS limited edition. Sign up and then click on the link on the “THANK YOU” page and see what all these films are about.

Also, we won’t make an offer on our products anywhere that we don’t also make to The List and we’ll never, ever share your email address with anyone. Generally speaking you’ll receive four mails each year announcing the seasonal editions, plus just a few more about product introductions or special offers. We know you’re busy and it’s hard to keep a clean inbox, so we’ll only send when we have something important to say.

We’re happy to be the title sponsor of the 10th edition of The Morning News Tournament of Books that’s going on right now.

From TMN: “In case you’re new to all this, the ToB is an annual springtime event here at The Morning News, where a group of the best works of fiction from last year enter a March Madness-style battle royale. In March, these novels will be seeded and paired off in an NCAA Tournament-like bracket. For each pairing, one of our esteemed judges will read both novels and advance one, with a transparent explanation of how they made their decision.”

We Forget All Too Soon the Things We Thought We Could Never Forget

March 16th, 2013 by Jim Coudal

Excerpts from and comments on Joan Didion’s essay “On Keeping a Notebook”, by Maria Popova.

Why did I write it down? In order to remember, of course, but exactly what was it I wanted to remember? How much of it actually happened? Did any of it? Why do I keep a notebook at all? It is easy to deceive oneself on all those scores. The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself.
