Interview with 8088Design aka Gary

If you dont know about Gary, you should know about Gary. I am here to educate you if you dont. If you have not experienced the shopping extravaganza that will leave you howling in your seat and your computer screen dripping with coffee that has been blown out your nose, I pity you. I am going to try and leave this interview as much in its original state as I can. Gary would want it that way. Oh, if you like capitalization, punctuation, grammar, sobriety, sanity or have an aversion to cussing, dont read this interview. You have been warned.

Welcome to the Gary Experience

  1. Finally some one who curses more than I do. Oddly my captcha word was "hoties". That should give Gary some more self-confidence.


  2. I've saw his shop a few days ago and just laughed my ass off! His link is getting passed around twitter by people with a quirky sense of humor.

  3. Fantastic interview! Gary has taken crafting to a whole 'nother level!

  4. Poetry....! Like tiny whispers from angels!

  5. Gary is a mofo genius!
