This Is About.

It's a digital age, man. So to you we present our virtual talk show of Nonsense: The Silly. The Beautiful. The True. In our own words or those quoted by others. With our own art or that created by others. We will laugh. We will smile. We will entertain you all the while. So grab a drink, come in and let's chat. We'd like to meet you, your mama, and your hot cousin Fred.


Sweet Nothings

We want to make these for all our dearies and all our kinda-sortas and all our strangers. We want to toss them and mail them and give them and leave them in strange public places for people to find and unwrap and have a giggle.

But we want to make them happy thoughts. Love thoughts and funny thoughts and obsessively joyous thoughts that stick with you through the depths of your worst days. Because what is the use of making something if there is no one to enjoy it?

Err, well lookie what we have here. We have us going against the grain of Sir Vonnegut's very thoughts, his very core of ideas that he lectured and sang and loved about for all those years of his life. Vonnegut said we should make art for art's sake. He said we should create for the act of creating, and after we've created we should destroy what we've blossomed up without telling a world-wide soul about it. Because that is what creating is about.

But damn, how could we not share the gem below, compliments of our girl over at Oh Happy Day?

Oh well. Maybe we'll ruminate on Kurt's teachings another day, with another dollar. But this one's on making us some pretty-ditty thoughts and asking Kinko's to print 'em off on big old sheets for our friends and our lovers and our strangers, all the world over.

What are you going to create today?
