Blue was started in 1992 by Jason Lee, Chris Pastras, and Kareem Campbell. All three had been riding for Blind or World Industries and wanted to do something different that was more grown up than the edgy material Steve Rocco was selling. Blue was the precursor to Stereo, with some of the graphics being inspired by jazz culture. The company didn't last long before Chris and Jason started Stereo with Deluxe in 1993 and Kareem went back to World Industries.
This is going to be four day week of Vert Is Dead. I'm using some vacation time on Wednesday. I'll probably be taking a few more mid-week days off in the next couple months because I need a break from work.
The next two features I'll be putting together will be on Welcome To Hell and Mouse, since both are 20 years old now.
