This week marks the passing of the 50th birthday of our own dear Jonathan Poneman: our boss, the co-founder of Sub Pop Records, filth-anthropist, countryman, liberal loudmouth, etc. Sometimes the best way to show someone how much you care is by totally destroying their office. And, because we do care, that’s what we did today. We got him pretty good a few years back when we filled his office with balloons, and since then he’s done an amazing job of making himself scarce this time of year. This year we organized a Polish lunch for him here at the office (his (much) better half is Polish, and it’s fun to watch him squirm around the meat…) but not before we plastered his office with his own lovely mug. Happy Birthday, JP—you’re the beast! Best. Sorry.
