At the Stax Museum in Memphis, Tennessee (with a shot snuck in from the Como Steakhouse in Mississippi) — on Impossible x Ace film.
Roll call: Isaac Hayes' contractually-obligated gold-plated Cadillac, the Hammond B3 on which Booker T & the M.G.’s recorded Green Onions at Stax Records in in 1961 when Booker was 17 years old, the Stax lounge, our dream girl Sugar Pie DeSanto, and the soundboard at Stax Records — if sliders could speak.

NATIONALE is one of our favorite shops in Portland — tiny and perfectly curated, abuzz with good creative energy. We’ve gladly smashed ourselves into hushed crowds washed up like surf around the perimeter of their shop to watch dance performances and listen to our friends read from their books, and we’ve happily unwrapped treasures we’ve treated ourselves to from their laden shelves. And now we’re proudly part of their star-studded line-up: they’re currently carrying our limited edition Ace x Impossible instant analog film for Polaroid cameras. To top it all off, today, NATIONALE turns three — they’re having a party at another local favorite, Holocene, with Tunnels, Wooly Mammoth Comes to Dinner and Scout Niblett, as well as DJs, a video installation by Alicia McDaid and a free advice booth from the lovely Jenn Armbrust. Everything’s going down 8:30 til late for a paltry six bucks — see the full schedule here.

Weronika Gajda aka By Niki shot these in her stomping grounds, the Seychelles Islands. Her photos are our January selections for the Ace x Impossible online gallery — as a token of our appreciation, we’ve sent her a limited PX Gold Edition from Impossible. The set will make anyone who likes a little flash with their flash very happy, with custom gold frames and a kit for making your own cards with your shots. Maybe Niki will send us one….
We’ll be picking shots out every month and sending flirtatious gifts, so enter your own photos to share the love.

Our friends at Lizard Lounge in Portland are now carrying Ace x Impossible Starter Kits and Film at their rad little shop in the Pearl — they’re also part of our Stick it to the Man holiday shopping heist. We’ve known the folks at Nau, the brand behind the shop a la lounge, for many years and we’re further ingratiated by their ever-running river of Stumptown at Lizard Lounge, so it’s all in the family. Go check out their shop, hang out and read a book and peruse their handsome selections of amazing sweaters, denim and, now, lovingly refurbished Polaroid cameras and resurrected analog instant film.
