This is real cool!

From: http://www.theindyexperience.com/

TIE.c Exclusive: We got word from 'Deep Voice' that the new hat for Indy IV is going to be The Akubra Federation. You heard right, no more Herbert Johnson, Akubra has taken the stage! Our contact mentioned that Lucas and Spielberg browse the web a lot, and search the message boards, and as you know, our good friend Renderingking Fisk, who is an avid member of COW (Indy Gear's Club Obi-Wan - Favorite among George and Steven) has stated for years: 'The Akubra is the best hat I've owned in 20 years'. This quite possibly has altered Indy history forever! We also got a few more tips on Indy IV, but they will have to remain 'Secret' for some time now.

Now, must anyone ask what hat to get from now on? I thought so... I think we all owe Eric a big thanks for what he's done, he's changed Indy IV history forever!

Better get the DeLorean, and fix what Fisk has done...

But seriously, if Renderking influenced George and Steve with his memorable quote, that's great. It's always great when one of our one has a pipeline to the top. LONG LIVE AKUBRA, FOR 20 YEARS AND BEYOND!

Yes, it would be, IF it were a joke. Don't believe me? That's okay, you'll see, July 4th 2005, you'll see.

Hehehe. This really is no joke. (good timing Aaron) Just kidding.

We are not making this up. We are just posting what we heard from our contact.

I love the Fed! Now I am glad I chose Akrubra!
Oh yeah!
Good job Fisk!

Thumbs down

If this news about the Akubra Fed. is true, I will be very disappointed. The Fed is a great "cheap" hat, but that's what it is, a cheap hat. It's color is very uneven and splotchy. When they get it under the lights, I'm pretty sure it will look very unflatering. Just my 2 cents. Cheers

Eric fooled even me on this. This thing needs to be deleted NOW! Thought it was. It was eric's idea of an april fools joke, and I was his pawn...

But hey, he was able to fool People Magazine on several occasions...

Are you thinking of Biff's "Why don't you make like a tree and get outta here" line?
