I think it looks like a shirt from a skateboarding company. The assignment is to make a provote poster, non-partisan, to convince students to vote. We had to write the copy and design the poster and after class I did what any good copywriter should do: go drinking with a bunch of funny dudes at trivia, ask them their opinion on what I've already got, and start making jokes about potential taglines. A bunch of stinkers get thought up, but then the gold comes through. Well, more or less. My tag for this one: skip class- make time to vote. This is just a phone pic, but I think I really like where this is going. I am so in love with those little lines inside the cursive that I might just start to make two more posters with the runners up copy lines.
Anyways I wasn't feeling so great because I just went out to lunch with my old boyfriend and then I realized that I didn't want it to end and then he said something that made me sad or emphasized this fact or something and then I just lost it all the way home and this song was going to be the only thing that would make me feel better, and guess what...it did.
Cuz he is awesome. He is the Corndawg aka Jonny Fritz and he rules. Gotta find a picture of his guitar cozy, because he made it on Ali's sister's knitting machines...it's super badass.I also kind of wish I could be him. He just goes on tour all the time ON A MOTORCYCLE, and takes pictures of it all, and goes out with Ali's awesome sister Lauren, and we served corndogs and beer at his show when he played in st louis, and he's got these great songs about young marriage that are called like "16" "18" "22", and since Ali and I are 22, we asked him to play 22 and he was like "I dunno if you want to hear that one, it's kind of mean"
She sent me this link to a very flattering write up he got and there's all sorts of cool links in this article about him that made me proud too. There's a video that I'll add to this of his commercial for his airbrush tshirts...it's funny. Here's his flickr.

Every time I get an email from Barneys (especially this one) it makes me want to make like a punk rock teenager and Eat the Rich. If only I had the connections to make money on every stupid idea I came up with and it went into production and was on sale for like $150 ea. I'd be a wealthy woman if that were the case. Consumerism doesn't suck if you know how to work it, but otherwise that aspect is just plain Depressing. I sincerely hope that [S]Palin's downs baby has gotten this rocker as a gift. I also hope no one finds this post from a search engine.

I found out about this from this JC Report interview...now why are so many awesome things available only in UK mainland? Are the English too lazy to ship overseas?

Soli said her scarf made her feel like her cat Lucha, so I asked her to make the face and this is what she came up with...looks just like Lucha!
Two metal dudes on BMX bikes were just too much good stuff.
they used to not like each other and now they switch hats!
LRB and Brian make faces.
Jim Utz humoring me.
For some reason I just really liked this picture.
This dance floor is often empty. Not when you have 100 people who know how to have fun.
Brian and Rose had the most awesome dance together ever.
this looks bad but really it's just a bad picture of an awesome somersault.
TJ wins the prize besides Dave Stone for most photogenic on my camera that night, because he was literally just WALKING by and saw that I was aiming at him, and RIGHT when the flash went off, he made this brilliant face, and it only lasted for that long. Probably because that part of his soul is now missing.
I love all three of these dudes.
I don't even know why I took a picture of Lee taking a picture, but I think it turned out awesome and I love Robert's pose.
They love love.
I love it love it love it when Grace gets drunk and rowdy. She is actually shredding leg guitar in real life here, she's that brilliant at having fun.
there's a missed step in between these two photos where a few people interrupt the leg noodling and pick jeff up and carry him around like a throne and probably drop him and then here is where he retalliates and makes John from Star Clipper look like a tiny child. This picture makes me crack up more than any other from this night.
Lee: "man, you think this place makes awesome pictures, just look at what happens when they turn on the lights!"
Dave Stone is the winner. I love how on FBC rides he is always so up for anything...like saying "where's the party next?" at the moonlight ramble at 4 am. So cute.
rose is done for the night (but not really)
peat pretended to steal someone's bike and you can't see his wig in the picture but it's awesome...
This picture is so unflattering it's cute.
this is brian telling peat about how much he hates the RFT while laying in the front door of bri zone. I don't remember what time it was but suffice it to say that it was very late. Goodnight.
