Pintxo's - Issue #19

Will you burn all your Defys?

Welcome to another edition of the Pintxos Newsletter.

What to expect: 916 words a 6-minute read.

TLDR: Notion is life. Another reason to visit Nashville, BTC Park. Des went ham with Defy. Meme cards on my mind.

Creative Corner

Today I wanted to talk about one my favorite tools and something I use daily for my creative endeavors, Notion. I am big fan of Notion and Obsidian (another tool for another time). Notion is jack of all trades tool that I use to capture notes, ideas, information, to dos and overall planning. An example of how I use Notion is attached. This is a small sliver of the types of uses it has but one benefit to having a centralized location for your notes is you can now search for them and my recall is a lot stronger because of it. If you are like me who spends a ton of time researching something this is extremely helpful.

With Notion getting so much attention and funding there are really great tools that can be built on top of it pretty easily. One great example is the DesLucrece supersite that K017G has helped craft which I highly recommend checking out as it is a beauty. There are a ton of other apps that exist to help you build on top of your notion database and tutorials. If you have any questions on how to use it, let me know (although I am still an amateur).


Sometimes I go back to my Bitcoin Maxi roots. And this time I wanted to bring Bitcoin Park to your attention. Not sure if most of you knew or not, in Nashville some nyms are working to get a small section of Nashville operating on Bitcoin similar to the beach town in El Salvador.

Regardless of how you feel about Bitcoin, having a place where cryptocurrency is accepted and used in your daily life is a great step forward and one where rubber meets the road. A ton of what we experience in our time with crypto is hypothetical when it comes to IRL experiences. And here is a place in the USA where it is slowly changing. I hope it suceeds so one day I can visit and worst come to worst, I’ll eat some spicy fried chicken.

NFT Space

DesLucrece had an OE for 15 minutes and things went about as well as I expected. 8408 pieces were minted and the rocket ship has not settled since. In less than a week from Sothebys to now, Des has officially cemented himself as a premier artist in the space and a ton of eyes are on him from the NFT community (finally and well deserved). It is insane to think he went from just getting into SuperRare recently to where he is now but not surprising. I am truly happy for him and the spotlight he rightfully deserves.

Elsewhere in the space, two of my favorites artists East and AbsolutelyWrong tag teamed a timed edition piece that is gorgeous and executed with both styles effortlessly. I am bummed I missed collecting this piece but will need to see if I can get it via offer.

Another week of some big sales. We had two big BAYC sales one with noise fur that sold for 260eth as well as a nice clean robot. But my favorite sale this past week was one of my favorite Xcopy pieces.

Looks like there will be a burn for Lascaux in the works. I did manage to get more than 1 copy back when we thought it was Bansky (lol) so I will keep an eye out to see if it is worth the squeeze.

It seems that 6529 has inspired this spin off collection with Meebits. There has been some pauses on minting and overall change of approach but this collection is one on my mind this week especially as I have been looking at scooping up a meebit for a bit now ;)

... but I can and will do everything I can to help Meebits win in the Meme meta. "Seize the Meebs of Production" -- mint coming this week. Already got some dope artists lined up. Thanks @PepePawnShop and @punk6529 for the inspiration!

Meme Of The Week

With the shenanigans going on over in the Monster server, this weeks meme paid great homage to the burn event with Defy.
