DicE Issue 59 - The Biltwell Issue.

We recently lost our collective minds and let Biltwell do a "takeover" of DicE issue #59. What this means is that they got to design the cover, a bunch of inside pages, and the special 16-page insert in the middle. Bill used to be the art director for Snap BMX and Transworld Motocross magazines a years ago, so this was a kinda fun flashback for him. The end results are fantastic, what a great issue it is. 132 heavy weight, high quality printed pages of sheer delight.  So without further ado, here is a little taster.

Issue 59 - The Biltwell Issue.

Gwen: "You have a butler?"
Richard: "Yeah, it's okay, shh... he'll go away."
Jack, Richard's Dad: [walks back from the kitchen, spots Richard andGwen on the couch] "Oh. Oh! I didn't realize you had company. Goodevening, young lady."
Richard: "That's all right, Monroe. Yes, would you just go lay out my blue pinstripe for the morning?"
Jack, Richard's Dad: "How about if I lay you out?"
Richard: "Very well."

Rod: "WHHat?"
Kevin: "You're saying it weird."
Rod: "Saying WHHat WHHeird?"
Kevin: "All of it."

Kevin: "I just don't get why you’re saying it that way?"
Rod: "I'm saying WHHat, WHHat WHHay?"
Kevin: "Forget it."
Rod: "I WHHill! I WHHill forget it!"

Inmate 2: "Yeah!"
Billy Ray: "Because I'm a karate man! And a karate man bruises on the inside! They don't show their weakness. But you don't know that because you're a big Barry White looking motherfucker! So get outta my face!"

Cameron Poe: "Put... the bunny... back... in the box."

Car Rental Agent: "Welcome to Marathon. May I help you?"
Neal: "Yes."
Agent: "How may I help you?"
Neal: "You can start by wiping that fucking dumbass smile off your rosy fucking cheeks. Then you can give me a fucking automobile. A fucking Datsun, a fucking Toyota, a fucking Mustang, a fucking Buick... 4 fucking wheels and a seat!"
Agent: "I really don't care for the way you're speaking to me."
Neal: "And I really don't care for the way your company left me in the middle of fucking nowhere with fucking keys to a fucking car that isn't fucking there. And I really didn't care to fucking walk down a fucking highway and across a fucking runway to get back here to have you smile at my fucking face. I want a fucking car right fucking now."
Agent: "May I see your rental agreement?"
Neal: "I threw it away."

Joey: "I said, uh, you guys look like a bunch of, uh, ears without pricks!"

Glenn: "Robbie Hart? Oh, man, I heard what happened to you at your wedding, that was so cold! You must've felt like shit!"
Robbie: "No, it felt real good, thanks for bringing that up, man. Hey, my parents died when I was ten, would you like to talk about that?"
Glenn: "No, why would I wanna talk about that?"
Robbie: "I don't know."

And if you make a fool out of me, I swear to God, I'll kill you right there. Boom! Right in front of Mommy and Daddy. And I'll tell you something else, you make me look bad... I will never ever talk to you again, ever. But if you do a good job, well, then you can be my best friend. My best friend that I've ever had. You hear me?"

Stoney: "Um, Robyn Sweeney, bro? She's not going to the prom with you, man. I wish she would, but she's really not."
Dave: "What are you talking about? Robyn Sweeney is mine. She's become a major babe, and she loves me."
Stoney: "She finds you crusty, Dave."
Dave: "I'll convince her! She'll see the truth."
Stoney: "The truth is bro, life's about greasing the 'do back, buddy, and wheezin' on the buff-fest, man. High school was interesting, alright? It was kinda like a harsh ride. Ah, ah..."
Dave: "Yeah."

Dice Issue 59/Biltwell Limited Edition Sissy Bar Bag.

Dice issue 59, The Biltwell issue, is nearly upon us and to celebrate we asked the Biltwell boys to design and manufacture 50 items that we can sell as limited editions with this issue. Bill had been wanting to do a small-scale traditional seabag, but with a couple extra features like Molle webbing that would be easy to attach to just about any sissy bar. He sketched up the dimensions, picked up a couple full-size seabags and headed to Duane Ballard's where he built the first prototype. That bag got a little six hundred or so mile shakedown and Bill learned a few things and made some modifications. Their vest guy in Los Angeles custom-dyed a lot of 100% cotton 18 oz. duck canvas and stitched 'em up. Bill and MaGoo hand tied the closures and installed the brass snap links. The finished bags were then dashed over to their screen printer where the underside of each bag's lid got a little artwork and serial number added. The volume of most bags or luggage is usually measured in litres, but we thought it would be more fitting to use cans of beer since more of our customers would probably identify with that. This bag fits 36 Coors originals perfectly, hence the name EXFIL-36. Got a little extra stuff? clip it on to the Molle straps on the side or add modular ammo pouches, etc. This bag is only available with DicE issue #59 and will go on sale in our online store on Monday morning, December 22nd at 9am PST (California time). Once we sell those 50 bags that's it, there will be no more. All successful purchases will be shipped on Monday December 29th.
