The LA/US nuts gathering comes to a close today, and what an adventure it was! Next year it’s off to New Orleans, so stay with us as we plan ahead! There’s talk of other stateside and international gatherings on the radar for this year and beyond as well! If you’re a nut and know others who would love to gather together, please contact us Nutmins for information and suggestions on how to organize it! We’re happy to help!
Next-up we have a new official logo design contest in October, with a signed Gotye album to give to the winner! Stay tuned for details!
Many additional thanks to Nutmins Lisa and Danae, nuts Francesca, Juliette and Lorraine, The Gotye Mailman, and all supporting nuts and partners for their amazing work and contributions to the 2013 LA nut gathering!
Back again soon!

He’s busy toiling at the screen to bring us this fantastic chat with Tim, Kris and Wally Basic. Here’s an utterly fab and entirely funny preview of the upcoming interview:
