Sad about the bees


I'm sad about the bees. Regardless of the specifics of why and how long, I'm feeling somewhat helpless in the face of events unfolding. As a result I couldn't bring myself to print dvd inserts at kinkos. I decided to go back to linoblock and print on paper I already own.

So, while I put in an eleven show week, I'll be spending the down moments carving away at my linoblock to keep myself satisfied of forward progress on my own projects while working an unreasonable amount.

I'm also sticking my toe in the "merch" waters for the show on the 5th. buttons. flipbooks. We'll see how it goes...

i would like to preorder my bonylil button now!

carve, carve like the wind (may it make you smile again. just don't stab yourself, by accident or otherwise.)

maybe we could turn prisons into institutes of bee husbandry or train convicted criminals to pollinate the crops. men in jumpsuits with pipettes communing with plants learn to turn their lives around and save the world...

if i were in charge we might just be doomed.

(here's an afterthought)

i can wear a button on each of my nipples.

(sorry, can't help myself sometimes.)

That reminds me of a strange poster that was up in this restaurant I used to go to as a kid (great potato pie). It featured a bunch of different illustrations with witty titles. The only one I remember was called "triple treat" under a drawing of a sassy bombshell type with three breastesiz. I found it puzzling. Didn't fully understand the reasoning behind it...

Later I had finally computed that men got all goofy around boobies.

So when I saw a map of a lake in the shape of a naked lady my uncle was looking and giggling about with his buddy once (I suppose he figured I wouldn't recognize what it was) and kept saying he wanted to go to the crotch part, my whole mythos had to be rebuilt about what men get goofy about.

How's that for a digression?

A simple triple nipple joke gets all twisted into a discussion on the effects of cultural attitudes toward the female body on the minds of young girls...

my my.

to only find that one thing that is really worth making a guy goofy for...(to use that special power to get the ultimate thing, whatever that thing might be.)

does one of your buttons say,"Bonylil is my Copilot"???

i wonder if there is an appropriate place for a third nipple to be.

we once played a skydiving party in napolean, MI. there was an infamous woman there who had an extra pair of nipples (though for the life of me i can't remember much about them, ask troy.) she could also stick her entire fist in her hand and she didn't have small hands. i do remember that part.

her name was whitney.

I <3 digressions.
(that's the first time i've ever used leet.)

i've decided that instead of buttons, you should someday have "Bonylil is my Co-pilot" bumper stickers.

i am flabbergastedly twitterpated with that idea.

Bonylil is my Co-pilot.
Bonylil is my Co-pilot.
Bonylil is my Co-pilot.
Bonylil is my Co-pilot.

(It fits the ironic trucker hat vipe of the youth these days and it fits nicely with your Fine Day for a Fly.)

I'm not leaving until it happens.

SORRY! I didn't realize about the BEE post here!!!

Zea said...

that's okay, dude-man, I don't have exclusive rights or nothing.

I think it's magical that we both were simultaneously freaked enough about it to make a post.

Barnaby said...
