- bisexual is something they invented in the 90's to sell hair products
- 's' to the 'd', shut it down
- but you know how there are no secrets in the tanning community?

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
