oh no! videos at 2AM

first off, how did this escape our radar:

also, this is how fairy tales were meant to be told, I didnt really feel I could share it with anyone else

dear joe

here is a link, in which one of my personal heroes more or less sums up how i feel about waking up at 5 goddam am every morning to sew monsters and doodle things.


Personal Letter to TinyMeat

Melissa, remember that entry you made about the "grown up aesthetic"? I have been practicing, but can't I just grow up with my favorite creators and continue to acquire the things they make for me? Such as:

Dear TinyMeat,

I love you. You make my favorite wallets in the world. It feels like just the other day when I drunkenly stumbled upon you in the Etsy bar to get a case for when I first received my passport.

You were sitting next to SEIBEI and had been flirting all night with Joined At The Stitch, they thought they were so grown up changing their name from Vagrant Aesthetic (we are all so proud).

but here's the thing, once a year I indulge on nabbing a new one from you kids and one for Melissa because ours have gone through a year of the natural disaster that is our ass and require replacement, plus the plastic and stiching start breaking and tearing.

They all started out so great:

Do you think you can make a grown up wallet? We, your early fans are growing up and sometimes we cannot pull out something as wicked as that last Zeptonn wallet in inappropriate situations like business dinners, funerals, turkey hunting, and Babylon 5 theme parties.

Yours Truly,

dear joe

i really think you should take an evening and read my 3 issues of Eye of the Magnificent Creature

but they are printed on newsprint, and i am afraid
1) your cat will piss on them
2) your cat will eat them
3) you will grudge them up
4) all of the above


can you either promise not to destroy them, or
go to
HERE HERE HERE and drop the $8 and buy them yourself. They come in a lovely christmas-like package, with a little OMG button. perfecto.

really, these are FREAKING great.

ps also let's try this blog shit again.
pps also let's start the mailing list up again. i promise not to suck so much this time
ppps i love u

oh mister Gondry

The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind are some of his most most recent claims to fame, but this imaginative genius has been setting the bar higher with every creation that makes it to screen and has been long before these full length features.

Gondry has the uncanny ability to make you show us as adults how to "play," how to tap into our dreamworlds as children and make them come to life again. He saves us from the terror of a complacent life and although never without its faults and drawbacks presents us with the opportunity to be a part of a better world.

This being said when I read today that:  Michel Gondry is going to direct Green Hornet? on my daily Pop Candy blog check. I nearly fell over in my chair with excitement. 

I am a comic book kid. I grew up on Spider-Man and X-Men. I was never really a DC guy. In recent years I've been that "graphic novel" guy, which is what we adults say we read to sound a little less like nerd-kids and more like nerdy-half-grownups. 

With the new release of Watchmen and several other projects on the film circuit; Y The Last Man, Ex Machina, Fables, etc. I am often told to be weary and often dissapointed, but with Gondry on the case I think we might just be okay. 

So keep your eyes out, cause this is just starting to get fun.
