Dinky, pictured in the photo of this month’s Pandering to the Locals, has long been considered the office’s official “office dog,” even though he belongs to webmaster Harry D. Hudson, Jr. Dinky’s great, but does he have a shell? No! Guess who does? My turtle of twenty-one years, Sheldon. Although he’s only lived in the office for upwards of three weeks, I’d like to deem him the Official Sub Pop Office Turtle. Check him out! This portrait was taken by the lovely Roseanne Olson, a pro at Getty Images. One of the things people don’t know about Sheldon is that he gives great advice on what Sub Pop releases to buy. If you want advice from Sheldon, e-mail him at press at subpop dot com.
